    This may have been discussed before but why is it all robots brought to life by the Allspark are bad? That doesn't make any sense to me.

    They're not bad. They're baby Transformers who attack everything that poses a threat to them (I.E. Everything that moves).

    Someone else said something about this in another current movie thread. All human technology were made from Megatron. As such their alleigience would be Decepticon if given life, being the spawn of Megatron.

    My belief is that baby Transformers don't know anything about good and evil and just want to have fun and suck energon from whatever source.

    Depends if you count toy bios, in which case Longarm counts as a "new" bot as his bio litteraly describes him as "being only a few minutes/hours old after being given life with AllSpark energy" on the "Final Stand" scene set. And then there's all the AllSpark power sub line bots, especialy Salvage, who doesn't even care he can turn into a giant robot, he just wants to keep hauling junk.

    That was my theory in the first movie. The new TFs suddenly find themselves sealed in a tiny box or in the middle of a war zone surrounded by organic creatures, it makes sense they're going to react instinctively and try to defend themselves.

    After RotF, I'm not sure about that though. The kitchen appliance gang seemed to go out of their way to hunt down and attack Sam, IIRC. It wasn't like he walked in on them, startled them and they reacted. Instead, they actually went through the house, to his room and jumped him. Does make it seem like they were born with some level of "evil" and knowledge. Maybe the Allspark was tainted by the Fallen or something somewhere along the line?

    They aren't evil, and they aren't "Megatron's spawn" (now, if they were made from parts of Megatron, yeah). It's been explained that the reason they attack, is a combination of being young and untrained bots, and being suddenly given a spark they weren't meant to have, and also not really understanding their surroundings. Basically if they had been created on Cybertron, and like the others were, they would act differently.

    Maybe they wanted the shard? I haven't seen the movie, so I don't know if Sam had the shard at that point or not.

    The shard was in the kitchen; it burned through the floor and Sam didn't retrieve it until after the kitchen gang was dismantled. If they'd wanted the shard, they could have just picked it up and taken it. And if they were just feral and reacting on instinct, why did they go through the house and specifically attack Sam, rather than (for instance) trashing the kitchen or going outside or after Sam's parents?

    I agree, hell they even look like Decepticons at "birth" with red eyes and body styles.

    Baby Transformers are just playful and naughty and they like to play with real guns until somebody buys them a toy gun.

    Not all of them are evil. Remember the bios of the first movie toys? Landmine for instance; brought to life by the AllSpark, born to protect.
