    We all know that jolt was a last minute character for ROTF and since he was added late, what was their original intention for the tf2 ending? was ratchet supposed to put optimus and jetfire together? how could he? Answers?

    Thats not the point of the OP's question. Hes asking how Ratchet could have possibly put Optimus and Jetfire together without either Jedi powers or talking a really long time to attach each part.

    Having Jolt do that was an ingenious idea seeing as how the other option was jedi force Ratchet.

    Agreed. Given the runtime of the movie at that point, adding on another 3-4 minutes to the movie (which would be like, at least 1 hour in movie story time), they needed a quick way to get that corpse onto Optimus. Having Ratchet sit there for an hour welding parts on Optimus while Megatron and The Fallen just watch, waiting for the harvester to power up would've been a little...hokey. A great way for Ratchet to do something, but a little time consuming.

    Ratchet actually does something important for once.

    Ratchet could have wipped out a doctor tool that did the same thing Jolt did. But the way it happened gave two autos some props. Or Optimus could have just handled it himself like he did everything else. He can take faces AND fix'em!

    I think Jolt is just a background character.

    the previzulisation from the DVD Shows that Ratchet was meant to do the same exact thing jolt did (but without whips this time or anything to merge them, he jsut uses his POWARZ)

    In the ROTF novelization Ratchet walks over and works on him. Otherwise its extremely vague and just says that "charges and energy flew, stirring up whirlwinds of dust and dirt" and that when it was over Optimus and Jetfire were combined.

    It seems that Jolt magnetically as well as electrically combined Jetfire with Optimus. Ratchet could have an EMP or something, or magnets carried over from his Animated counterpart, and zooooooooooped JetPrime together.

    Then there would be no JetPrime.

    I'm guessing either the Autobots and NEST would all work together welding Jetfire bits onto Optimus, or Ratchet would've just whipped out electrical whips out of his arms like Jolt did. Or maybe the Ratchet would do something with Jetfire's spark that'd somehow cause his corpse to automatically combine.

    without jolt, we'd all be screwed, and you know it.
