The same way everyone else got to earth without being noticed. They got there way before advance surveillance technology.

Yeah, Predaking's sole mission in life is to be beaten by Sky Lynx.

Repeatedly.

Theres enough different sizes of Construction Vehicles that they could fudge Devestators proportions. Hook bending in the middle would help.

If they are going the way of avoiding the whole mass-shifting, then it has to be devastator.

He's one of only 2 combiners from G1 that didn't have 4 smaller robots and 1 big robot(The other being Predaking, of course).

And, Devastator would look cooler than Predaking, imho.

Also, if Devastator is in it, perhaps we could get a Masterpiece Devastator

And Monstructor.

And Dinoking.

And RoadCaesar. And LeoCaesar. And Landcross.

And the Micromaster SixCombiners.

And the fact all the Constructicons were the same size becomes silly once you realise that they were, uhm, creative with their relative sizes. As other people have observed.

I think if Devastator is in it they should call him Decepticon Brawl onscreen in the interests of balance...

I agree. The whole "lightning out his arse" thing seems played out.

You can't prove that.

Mind, neither can I.

Erm, carry on.

Micromaster combiners weren't so much "robots combining, with some extra parts" as it was "parts combining, with some robots".

because the us military would set an advanced strike on said aircraft carrier (at which point he'd probably transform and be found out...)

and the autobots would probably be a little curious of a giant freaking protoform falling to earth...
but thats just a theory...

and you should totally coin that- you'd make millions in toy sales alone...

Besides which, all sorts could come into play, just as it does whenever a large robot battles smaller TFs in existing media... Sometimes it isn't just Saturday morning logistics - there's to reason to suggest Tidal Wave wouldn't be as lumberous as, say, Devastator.
but with closer to real physics in the mix- that would be like someone shooting spitwads at you in order to destroy you (bearing in mind the size differential...) ... regardless of a thousand spitwads at high velocity- pretty sure you're still gonna survive... barring being made of sugar or that horrible bruising disease of course...

now that i think of it though, there was no robot on robot energy cannon shooting in the film... so potentially- shooting at a bot that big may work with cybertronian weaponry... counterpoint withdrawn

Yeh, it worked out for them nicely when they directly took on Blackout, didn't it? With the plot being largely unknown, there are too many variables in there for any sort of discussion about this sort of thing to take place. Theoretically, Tidal Wave could man himself with hundreds of holograms, sink a carrier and take it's place, and get all the way to Pearl Harbour packed with Decepticons (though personally I think he's most likely to be involved with raising Megatron).

Who says he'll arrive this way? We don't know what rule changes will take place for the second film...

EDIT: Also, there are all sorts of ways to take someone down other than just shooting them...

Don't aircraft carriers normally hang around with a bunch of other ships Destroyers and Frigates and things.

Apart from the Royal Navy apparently who are planning a couple of huge aircraft carriers but can't even afford any planes to go with it....let alone an escort..

I'm sure i saw some concept ship transformers somewhere.

ah there we go thanks to transformers @ the Moon.

Ships

Destroyer

Machine Robo did a concept for an aircraft carrier too: - http://www.toyarchive.com/Gobots/Pro...seCarrier.html (plus they actually produced a battleship).

The thing would probably be escorted (it'd depend on the mission and political climate... if it was returning from a refit over a short distance, I'm not sure they'd bother, and there are few front-line ships a state-of-the-art aircraft carrier couldn't handle), but that wouldn't necessarily be an obstacle - who knows how powerful the hologram mechanism could be?

But if he was already here, wouldn't have S7 known about it? Unless he was hiding in the abyss they put the Decepticons in...
