    In the nemesis? I only saw hatchlings, they probably all starved I guess, from the lack of energon?

    I'd imagine at least some of them are the hatchlings Megatron was feeding in Africa...where they are presumably continuing to starve now.

    An aborted "stinger ending" for ROTF was to show Megatron returning to the Nemesis and awakening the protoforms, which made it through to the comics, novel and video game. Presumably, it was dropped from the actual film because it made no sense - he didn't *get* the energon he needed from the whole Sun Harvester plot, so he didn't *have* a way to awaken them.

    Somewhere between ROTF and DOTM, though, the Decepticons obviously got enough energon to awaken at least some of the protoforms, and you see them in DOTM at the Decepticon camp while Megatron is feeding them. Sadly, the little buggers presumably starved to death after Megs died at the end of the film.

    For what it's worth, it's possible that after the invasion of D.C. Igor returned to Africa to continue feeding and tending to them.

    This is a big reason why the movie ending is terrible. All the hatchlings die of starvation just because they, with no say in it, were born onto the Decepticon side.

    Makes me think they need their own appeal advert.

    "Give a protoform some energon and you'll feed it for a day. Teach a protoform to harvest energon itself and you feed it for a lifetime. A small donation of just one Shanix a month will help Igor build the tools he needs to repair the destroyed Sun Harvester and provide for himself and his family. Protoforms don't want to live on hand-outs, they just want the chance to live their own lives with respect."

    Lack of energon probably starved them to death.

    They starved to death because Optimus Prime is a selfish bloodthirsty bastard who betrayed his race.


    ...I'm just kidding.

    If the Autobots did find them, would they adopt?

    I think they answered that question pretty solidly when Prime said "We will kill THEM ALL."

    I'm reminded about how Prime continuously encourages you to kill the Decepticon hatchlings in the DOTM video game.
