So the other day I rewatched the 1986 movie, and one thing was really sticking out to me, that I didn't think about before. Why do the Decepticons go out of their way to attack Autobot City? Autobot City may have been a base, but it's clear that the Moon Bases are the real threat, as Starscream puts it. It's where their HQ is. And when Megatron hears what Starscream says, he doesn't answer it. He says "You're an idiot, when we slip by their early warnings in their own shuttle and destroy Autobot City, the Autobots will be vanquished forever!" Completely avoiding addressing the Moon Bases. And it's not as if they were going to turn around with the ship and sneak by. They went straight for the city. Why ignore the Moon Bases? Optimus even said they can't support a full scale assault, why can't they just ambush them on both Moon Base? Could Megatron somehow had intel that Autobot City was Metroplex, and as a result, feared the Autobots summoning it to Cybertron? What if Optimus Prime was trying to hide the Autobot City, and Megatron perhaps had no way of approaching Earth to confirm if it was there or not? And perhaps the reason he completely dodged Starscream's question was because he didn't want any other Decepticons knowing about Metroplex? I feel like as a warlord he would want to hide information of a potential giant superweapon, so his soldiers don't cower trying to fight it. It's just that this appears to me to be the only logical reason to attack Autobot City first, rather than the moon base. Does this seem like a possibility?
