    in the scene where Optimus destroys the sun harvestor, does he destroy the matrix along with it? or whats the deal with that?

    plus, kinda on topic...when sam lodged the matrix into optimus' chest, is that how he learned about his ancestors and the fallens past since he didnt know about the fallen before, but somehow automatically knew who the fallen was after he was brought back to life.

    I read on tfwiki (hurr, I know it's not a concrete source), that it allegedly is in Prime's hip or something. I have no idea who claimed it and wrote it on there, but it was on there last night.

    Also, it makes sense to gaining the knowledge by the Matrix being injected.

    ******SPOILERS BELOW! (not sure if I still need spoiler warnings, but doing it just to be safe.)****





    I know you got it off of TfWiki.....but didn't The Fallen take it out of Prime then used it to power the sun harvester?

    I think it went KABLOOEY after Prime shot the harvester, either that or its ALL POWERFUL, since it is the Matrix of Leadership...and fell back into another pyramid for Megatron to somehow find again to revive the Fallen. ZOMG PLOT FOR TF3!!!! /sarcasm

    Ebay:
    We can assume power & knowledge was passed from the Matrix, as that's the prior fiction sources take on how the deal usually works, but for now even that remains an assumption.

    The Matrix itself, unless they pull an Allspark shard likness and have it stored away - having been recovered after the battle, can be assumed destroyed with the Sunharvester it was powering. When he crashes into the Fallen, sending them both flying off the pyramid, he's got his gun in one hand, nothing in the other. He's not holding it during his final battle. It doesn't appear in his hand or on his person as he's standing with the Jetfire armor disengaging, nor when he's standing on the aircraft carrier.

    I think it was said in the book adaption that the Matrix ended up fused into Optimus' hip.

    As far as the movie goes i asumed it just went 'slodey with the top portion of the harvester.

    I just figured they could've searched the Harvester Pyramid for it, something with that much power probably couldn't be destroyed in something so weak as an explosion. Before it was only a key/symbol of leadership, but allegedly (don't know how true it is) it gained the powers of the Allspark, so it's probably sturdy as fuck.

    Yeah, it's knowledge or existence would have been passed onto Prime - theoretically speaking anyway.

    Yes indeedy, the novelization also clarifies the Cube created the Matrix (it's described as pouring out like a tear and solidifying - would've looked beautiful on screen). Unfortunately since Bay cut out a lot of this backstory, the Matrix is just an energon key that somehow went into the AllSpark with the Primes and blew up with the harvester. Hopefully it will be appear in TF3 lodged in Optimus' hip.

    Umm... sorry, but since when does a Novelization on the movies count as something from the writers?

    It's based on something the writers wrote but probably got cut by Bay.

    Like the Allspark sliver, the Matrix got stuck in Sam's hoodie. We won't see it again until we see Megan Fox bent over something.

    I promise I'll only look at Miss Fox. You can get counselling for your stage-fright.
