    Alright, anyone the slight bit confuddled on why Cybertron wasn't utterly destroyed when the central pillar was simply disconnected when Optimus first blasted it?

    I was kind of amazed that Half-Cybertron was perfectly fine just sitting in space, even though the transportation of it had been stopped.

    It is not til the pillar is completely destroyed that Cybertron has to go ka-boom along with it.

    Since the pillar was still working, albeit slightly damaged, it seems the teleportation was merely "paused."

    I guess Sentinel realised these things would be used during the war, and would need to be able to take at least one hit before going kablooey.

    it may be like when a download gets stuck, the connection is still there but not moving. probably goes like this, since the pillar was interrupted but not disabled, the energy flow was constant, thus holding what was present of cybertron from collapsing in on itself, until the pillar was destroyed, thus causing the mass of energy needed to transport cybertron to implode on itself. - or something like this....

    This.

    And when Cybertron implodes, it's simply undergoing one of the many "Flubs of Teleportation" cliches - the subject being transported starts collapsing in on itself.

    The pillar wasn't destroyed therefore the spacebridge had just paused (until Dylan reactivated it) then as soon as the pillar got destroyed, cybertron collapsed in on it's self as the spacebridge wasnt 'complete'

    This is how I see it ,
    I don't think there is a right or wrong answer in the Bay-verse

    Maybe it was like this

    "Wow....that shot was strong...wow....I'm sorry....but I'm got to take a nap...:) "
    *Cybertron stops telaport(?)*

    Then Dylan's ''bop'' was like an alarm clock to it

    "Ow shit...got to get back to work!"
    *Cybertron re-starts to telaport(?)*

    Well....that what I think.:)

    Guys, guys, guys...

    Dylan didn't reactivate it. He merely repositioned the Pillar to an optimal transmitting position. Like adjusting the antennas on the top of a TV to get a better signal.

    Someone already said it, but Cybertron was acting like a download; the connection held strong when the pillar was knocked out of transmitting position, and then restarted once the pillar had reconnected itself with the space bridge network.
