    In the preview for Nemesis Prime, it shows the titular character attacking military infantry.

    What is Sila's intention with this? Is he planning to soil the Autobot's reputation or is he just attacking them for his own motives?

    To test out Nemesis' abilities? What better way to test out a bot than to put it up against an army? Especially if you can't find any Decepticons or Autobots

    Sorry guys, I accidentally the submit button before I made a poll. So I just made another thread entirely instead, hoping that no one would've noticed :eek:

    Maybe, it's to get humans to view Mech as the one thing that can protect them from Cybertronians.

    He might need resources because he could be low on fuel or something

    He's obviously trying to soil the Autobot reputation. In the next episode "Grill" Agent Fowler has to deal with the government terminating or possibly forcing Team Prime to leave Earth.

    Considering how cliche and tired Silas is as a character, I would not be suprised if it is just to slander the Autobots. That or he just wants something.

    Considering the episode after Nemesis Prime's episode's description, most likely to soil the Autobots' reputation.

    As some people have stated previously, Silas may be part of a black ops or shadow government organization. This would make his position somehow comparable to that of the Wreckers where they don't answer to the normal chain of command and maybe even enables them to things more 'dirty' than other government organizatios would be willing.

    With Optimus framed, government agencies may start relying on them more.

    IMO, he's outing the transformers to the world and using them as a threat to either sell weapons and get rich or "save" the military and get people to join MECH and gain power. He picked optimus because he is the largest and most imposing transformer that Silas has seen so far (I don't doubt that Silas would have gone with a Megatron clone if he ever saw Megs xD)

    Agreed, I really want to like MECH, but has Silas ever explained what his motive is? He wants innovative technology...why? So far it just seems to be "We're bad guys because we are"

    War is always brewing and the side with the better technology will be the victor. That was his logic, something like that. Basically, upping technology to stay ahead of the game in perhaps a war that he intends to start himself..or he's making weapons to be a human Swindle =D
