    I hate how everything ends up on Earth. Extreme coincidence. It's ridiculous. Also Optimus mentioned someone called Solus Prime or something like that? Anyone think he could be a new character? Anyway this was one of my favourite episodes so far

    There's already a thread with a topic similar to this.

    Dude, Solus Prime was a chick.

    Didn't they say something last episode of something along the line of Unicron's pull or something?

    Just blame it all on Unicron. Simple as that.

    That's speculation posted by those of us in the forum, but the hypothesis has been acknowledged/supported in the show as far as I know.

    I think it would be cool if it was.

    You haven't read the books, huh? Don't feel bad--I'm new to these new important characters too. Solus was one of the 13 original Primes in this new continuity, so she's new...yet old:p  You can see her and the other Primes battling Unicron in the last year's season finale.

    In regards to why everything ending up on Earth, well, the story takes place on well...Earth. It would be nice if items were sent through the galaxy or elsewhere in our universe, but their is only so much that can be done in a 22+/- cartoon, no? I'll settle for an artifact or two digging our moon, however.

    At some point, they should explain why they came to our world. We known since Darkness Rising that this wasn't the first time the Cybertronians came to our world. Why did they come, and why have they returned? Perhaps the answer to these questions will tell us why the artifacts all came here.

    ...though, should Unicron awaken again, which I suspect he will (one last time), the Cybertronians will at least have the means to put an end to him once and for all (remember that major character death talked about).

    This was explained several times. Earth was one of the locations the Autobot high command sent some of the artifacts and weapons to make sure they didn't fall into Decepticon hands.

    Solus Prime is, unfortunately, dead. She was one of the original 13.

    I'd like to see a number of episodes set in other parts of the TF: Prime universe (Chaar, Cybetron, Nebulon etc).

    Megatron said they need to make sure the hammer didn't fall into the hands of a Prime instead of saying they need to make sure the hammer didn't fall into Optimus Prime's hands so you have to wonder if a last Prime is something the show has been wrong about.

    I'm guessing everything falls to Earth so they don't have to build backgrounds for other planets and the kids can be in the episodes if they stay on Earth.

    How could Optimus NOT be the last of the Primes? Unless this show follows the books, which it has in parts, Optimus is the last of the Primes. The remaining Primes in the books left the life of being a Prime and cared little for the life they once had...

    Being a Prime has to be more than just a title.

    As mentioned above, Solus is one of the original 13, and therefore not likely to show up in any real sense (although I wouldn't put more cameos/weird rotf mystical stuff past the team, since the Primes had screen time here.)

    Also, the Earth thing has been explained to be that Earth was one of the major battle sites of the great war, and so stuff ended up here, either in storage, or as debris. I'd really like them to go into more detail, though. When was this? Did Humans notice? Was it pre Humans? What happened pre-prime to earth? Backstory to the show, to Fowler? How far reaching did the war get? How many planets out there are strewn with Cybertronian waste? Did any planets pay the same price as Cybertron?

    There's potential for great story building there, but I'm not sure if it's the scope of the show, or if it's too periphery, and probably the domain of secondary fiction (comics, books, games - whatever). I do hope it's something they at least glance upon.

    Well as far as they are concerned he IS the last Prime, as in, the last of the line. But that doesn't stop one of the 13 of showing up, in fact, chances are Megatron will end up seeking one of them to use the artifacts since Optimus probably wouldn't like the idea of making weapons for the Decepticons.

    Is the original Megatronous dead? If any of the original Primes is likely to help Megatron, I assume he'd be the one. ...but why would he?

    It'll depend on where Megatronus is right now. If he is like, trapped or weakened, they could probably do some kind of deal that helps them both. The reason the deal with Unicron failed was because Megatron assumed Unicron would need his help, but he didn't, Unicron was fine by himself.

    Considering the Thirteen seem to for all intents and purposes be immortal, and Megatronus is...ya know, The Fallen, if they start showing up, I'm sure he'll show his firey behind at some point

    Because the Earth is technically Cybertronian, Unicron anyone?

    Eh. When your core is a multi-dimensional hell god, contrivance is the least of your worries
