    This just goes back to bad story telling. We don't see the Doctor's fate for the same reason we don't see the twins, or Barricade's fate.

    But what possible purpose could a microscope have in the film beyond that point, when it became "Giant Robots #()@% $#!% up for an hour"?

    Is it too much to assume he just stopped being useful? Not every single minor character in a movie can get a complete wrap-up to their involvement.


    That's not bad storytelling, it's just storytelling. It follows the main focus of the movie. As much as some may wish, the Doctor wasn't the main focus, Sam/Prime were.

    Jetfire brings pain to Mixmaster by cutting him in half with his cane. No, not axe. CANE.

    Maybe it was a cane that transformed into an axe?

    That the Blenderbot had a Decepticon symbol. How did that happen?

    You can not be serious. It wasn't bad story telling that the Doctor never appeared again? That Wheelie disappeared into thin air? That the Twins vanished after their fight with Devastator? Or how about Bumblebee, who was last seen, no, glimpsed when the Fallen teleported in and knocked Prime over?

    Leaving stuff like that unresolved is lazy and just downright poor.

    No for the first two, but you may be on to something with the last ones.

    I couldn't even make out what the Twins were saying in the Tomb of the Primes in theaters, until they said "You scared?" Only when I got the DVD could I figure it out.

    Mudflap: "Man, why we even still followin' yo little punkass around? You never did nothin' 'cept ding my rim!"
    Skids: "Killed Megatron, how 'bout dat?"
    Mudflap: "Well, 'pparently, he didn't get the job done, 'cause he's back NOW."
    Skids: "You scared?"
    Mudflap: "Scared? Scared of yo ugly face!"
    Skids: "Oh, so I'm ugly? We're twins, you stupid genius!"

    Anyway, I also hadn't noticed Ironhide and Sideswipe in the background dust when Sam's screaming "You gotta get up! He's turning on the machine!"

    Lol Skids told mudflap good with that last line.

    "were twins you stupid genius."

    Its like if I told my brother that his mother is a fat ugly bitch. Then the occurring reply is. We have the same mother you moron. Then a fight would ensue =P

    I'm still trying to find something. Its hard when my rip of the DVD has shitty quality during the epic action scenes.

    The character designers were asked to make feral little bad guys. One of them must've automatically though "Cons" and slapped it on there. Simple, yet understandable mistake.
