    It'd also just be pretty lazy to fall back on that plot element yet again.

    It didn't make any sense in the 2007 movie (So Megatron can travel through the impossibly cold vacuum of space on his own and be totally fine but once he lands on Earth and falls through the ice he's suddenly able to be frozen?) and the only reason they'd do it here would be as a reference / shallow attempt at some mangled form of 'continuity'.

    Furthermore it doesn't exactly do any favors to him as a character either.

    This is kind of important for citizens in Cuzco. There was an important concern about damages to the city or our ancient Inca's constructions. This was due to an terrible event from years ago when a beer company filmed a commercial in an ancient solar watch "Inti Huatana" and they broke it by accident. Nobody was responsible for that and people still remember that. The ministry tool its time to finally approved all permissions and be sure Cuzco residents won't have anything to complain. They even shared this pic in their official Facebook.

    The only way i want him on earth if he breaks out of stasis at some point during ROTB.

    Yeah, that makes no sense, they can survive the coldness of space and orbital reentry, BUT yeah heat rounds and cold hurt them? So stupid.

    I just don't want them to not include Megatron an account "he is frozen", so fucking stupid. He is so important to the franchise.

    To be fair you could argue the ice particles are what caused Megatron to freeze at the Arctic...space would have colder temperatures, but no water/ice. Technically I don't think we've ever seen the (movieverse) Transformers functioning in an Artic environment before.

    I don't want him on Earth period before the Autobots ever got there. It completely trivializes the war on Cybertron if Megatron wasn't, y'know, leading his army. The only reason he should ever want to be on Earth is to destroy the Autobots.

    Oh cool. Thanks for letting us know. I wonder what the official announcement would be, I guess it would be about the Terrorcons invading their factory

    I have a theory... what IF Mirage is just the concept code name..... for jazz. I mean, Dropkick was called Ranger, and shatter was Fracture. There's a low chance for this to be the case.

    So , hasbro can leave Paramount now if they want because paramount will invest in movies with a smaller budget to not to have losses. that´s why angel manuel soto transformers movie have 50$ million Budget ( to you have a idea ,50$ dubget is the same as the joker movie)

    I think what @Autobot Burnout means is that he hopes he is not there Frozen like the Michael Bay movies. Because him being Frozen is dumb, limits what you can do, and makes no logical sense within its own framework.

    Yes, that's why I said that in a later post you clearly didn't read.

    And furthermore, @Rob is correct in that I just don't want Megatron to have been on Earth "all along" or something stupid. I am so goddamn tired of Earth having to play host to constant ancient aliens bullshit because the hacks writing these films can't figure out that the robots don't necessarily need a compelling reason steeped in human history to still be on the planet.
