    Obviously Sam's rant in ROTF served as a trapdoor writing for Sentinel Prime. Same can be said of the fragment of the Allspark.

    One trapdoor I see that goes all the way back to TF1 and later ROTF is that Megatron almost absorbed every last piece of the Allspark.

    Another would be if Scalpel managed to keep hidden that shard of the Allspark.

    Another would be Jetfire's torn spark.

    Any else you can think off?

    I thought that an All-Spark shard couldn't be re-used since they were seemingly absorbed. The two shards in ROTF were spent on reviving Megatron and bringing Jetfire out of stasis.

    -the entire Ark ship is still in the moon...maybe something else besides Sentinel and Space Bridge could be used as a plot device there

    -The Nemesis ship in ROTF is still kicking in Saturn's moon i think

    all the Space Bridge pillars are not destroyed, a Decepticon Survivor could attempt to re-engineered the Control Pillar and begin another battle...

    Some of you are really reaching with plot points for a 4th movie. The events in DOTM make it somewhat difficult to piece together another sequel. I mean, you could introduce Unicron and go with the obligatory Megatron -> Galvatron route, but he would obviously be killed again. That'd be the 3rd time Megatron gets brought back only to die.

    I was thinking about that too. Jetfire just happened to be the closest one to them. But there's no way to wake them up unless:

    1, there is another sliver of the allspark found
    2, they bring in Dr. Arkaville(sp?) to be the villain
    3, NEST introduces Issac Sumdac as a top engineer
    4, someone steals the Matrix of Leadership from Optimus

    these are just suggestions...but I have a feeling they may do a semi-sequel like Pirates 4 which can watched without seeing the other 3 flicks.

    Galvatron does not need to be the main villian in TF4...he can be brought back in TF5 or TF6. There are few main villians who can hold their own against the Autobots.

    Looking back on it, the shot of Megatron's head falling to the ground at the end of DOTM reminded me of the first season of Animated where he was wired up to Sumdac's lab. Replace Sumdac's character with Dr. Arkeville and you might have something...

    But again, he's just going to bite the dust again. I really wish the Decepticons would've come out with a win in this series. As it stands, it's really difficult to put together a story without the likes of Megatron, Shockwave, Soundwave, or Starscream as potential Decepticon leaders.
