    When sentinel opens the bridge it seems to go to the moon and there are loads of cons, how come the bots didn't notice them and they were on the moon deactivated in the first place? And if the bots were trapped on earth, howd they get to the moon?

    It's clear in the movie how the Autobots got to the moon - they took the Xantium there and back.

    As for the Decepticons, it was an army that was hiding in wait of getting the invasion signal.

    I guess the Fallen launching his assault on Earth after Optimus is killed isnt the kind of invasion signal they were looking for.

    Could have easily been that the Decepticons beamed down from Cybertron once the Space Bridge was established by Sentinel, but they had to do to whole confusing waiting-on-the-moon for 50 years crap which totally defied all the fiction in TF2007 and ROTF.

    It seems Megatron was going behind the Fallen's back with this plan with Sentinel so telling the Fallen about this other army he had on the moon and other plans his minions had put in motion while he was frozen would probably have gotten him killed.

    Neither The Fallen nor Sentinel Prime are Gods.

    Because Gods can't be killed Huh-Duh... they are Gods.

    in the movie we see spy shots of the dark side of the moon that had drag lines. the decepticons were harvesting the pillars and hiding them beneath the surface of the moon waiting for megatrons arrival. More than likely the invasion signal was the energy that the space bridge produced

    The army was in hibernation waiting for the command signal that were the space bridge pillars most of them had activating. Then they got the "Hey its time to go" order. And they're robots. Sleeping on the moon isn't hard.

    Makes sense, but why is it that Sentinel Prime is needed to open it and Megatron or any other TF can't (password protected or only he knew how?)

    There are a few myths that have mortal [kill able] Gods.The Norse myths are very notable in that regard.

    it was sentinel's invention, so activation probably had something to do with his "dna"
