    In Revenge of the Fallen Optimus was said to be last Prime,but Sentinel awoke in 1969! why didn't he join the Autobots in the first two films? like where did he go? did he just sit and watch TV on the ark for all those years? or did he go back to Cybertron? He would of been able to see Earth from the moon so you think he would of visited

    There's no real confirmation of him waking up in 1969. The trailer could very well have skip ahead about 40 years.
    Other than that, I'm not one to bet on the movies having proper continuity.

    I think like Megatron in the first movie they kept him in a secret part of the NASA's space program.

    It appears that Sentinel crashed on the moon, went into stasis lock, and was presumed lost. Thus, with all of Cybertron convinced he was dead, he didn't appear on The Fallen's "Prime Radar" the way Optimus did. There's no way NASA would have been able to haul Sentinel's body back to Earth from the moon, so he would have stayed there until the present day, where he apparently awakens during the events of DOTM.

    As for his apparent reactivation during the trailer, there's two possibilities. 1. The eye lighting up is during the actual movie, not when the astronauts are on the moon. Or 2. It's a style choice done to enhance the trailer.

    My money is on him waking up just for a brief period of time in 1969, then going back into stasis, and the US government not knowing the difference between stasis-lock and death so they just left him up there.

    Figuring out how the hell he's going to get off the moon.

    Maybe they go see him and he's a hermit. Maybe that's how they get his help.

    OP: "We need your help, Sentinel, to defeat Megatron." SP: "Why should I help you?" "We can get you off this rock." "FUCK YEAH lets go get Megan Fox!" "Mega-tron." "Him too!"

    Like what Harrier said, maybe Armstrong and Aldrin activated him briefly and he went back into stasis, like how Archibald Witwicky activated Megatron by accident.

    Why not wait to see if the film actually clarifies this, instead of presuming that this is a continuity error.
