I don't know all the names: I only heard about it second-hand. Nothing is proven, as far as I know. I did find this, which talks about the theories (and absurdities!): http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Size_changing The extra mass has to go somewhere else, otherwise most people would be unable to lift gun Mega...

Yes, Autobots would be master scanners by now. However, some people suspect that Megatron and others use extra dimensions to store excess mass when they shrink. If true, this would complicate the situation. With regard to energy, people like Shockwave are experts and could dredge up a bit more from ...

Can an Autobot scan spot this 'fake Megatron'? It depends on how the shrinking-to-gun-mode process works and also if the Autobots managed to obtain recent scans of the real (gun) Megatron for comparison. The Decepticon leader would resist being scanned unless he wanted it for some reason.

'...entire posting history didn't consist of you drawing silly comparisons between things that are completely unrelated...' Not true. Surely I would have been banned by now otherwise.

Saying things like 'stupid' and 'ignorant' is very broad-brush and insulting. It's all about personal opinion and taste, about what is worthwhile and what is not. Getting brickbats for saying one or two things smacks of Big Brother (not the TV show), thought control, repression, etc. Transformers an...

Diagram - that would be interesting. Everyone is stupid and ignorant about many things, so we're all in the same boat. My main point was about the timings: only a few months apart. I was thinking about other unintentional 'predictions' that have happened before. I'm not going to go on and on; I just...

The Arizona Shooting [Split From Comic Discussion]

Moderator Note: This was originally part of the discussion of the first 12 issues of IDW's Ongoing, but as it's both gone wildly off topic and more than a bit offensive it's gotten spun off. As there's a potentially worthwhile debate to be had on what happened this will stay open for now, but if it...

I wonder if all the little Walthers transform into Mini Megs?! It would be like 'Emperor Zurg' from 'Toy Story 2', only more destructive!

A whiff of the ludicrous: humans managing to make such powerful guns. Either they're world-class scientists/engineers or maybe it's easier than we thought, e.g. 'use two egg boxes, not just one'.:)

Megatron's severed head: a bit like the situation in T.F. /G.I. Joe 'Art of War'.

Did any Decepticon even bother to investigate the power of the Matrix? They were treating it like an ornament! Maybe they are simply incapable of understanding it. Perhaps Hot Rod got lucky with the cerebro shell. If Bombshell quickly 'tuned' it so that it would interface with Hot Rod, the Autobot c...

I just got issue 2. There's quite a lot of violent action, plus a family at home is under strain. The humans start to understand the cube.

The 'lap-doggery' is probably a Decepticon deception.

Onslaught working for the North Koreans: I guess he's really desparate for any kind of support. In the real world, some commentators think that new leader Kim Jong-Un will open up the North Korean economy to limited foreign dealings. North Korea is in a bad state. People are starving in the street.

Megatron might have sent his mind as a communication through hyperspace. (The holographic Doctor did it on Star Trek: Voyager!) The door to hyperspace could have been opened by the engines of his ship. He could have had a spare body stashed on Earth, in pistol mode. The 'too-much-power' issue has al...

That little gun at the end could have been Megatron himself. He is awake and could have found a way to get back to Earth, if only his mind. Alternatively, he could have left powerful handguns with his facsimiles.

Some months before Operation: Volcano, Cybertron received data from Earth via the Space Bridge, so Impactor could have known many Earth idioms.

I guess that any planet with wind and sand could have a sandstorm. The recent discovery of a rocky, Earth-type planet around the star Gliese 581 (which is only about 20 light years from Earth) shows that rocky planets are probably quite common in the universe. Many of those would have sandstorms. Ea...

I wonder if the Autobots will form another group to replace the Wreckers? Maybe they already have a group that could do the job: perhaps one or two combining teams? Dinobots? One of the giant Autobots? We wait and see.

A few more examples

Some stuff that may have been overlooked: In Escalation no. 2, the Decepticons transfer memories and entire personalities from humans to facsimiles. That's advanced technology. The facsimiles thought that they were actually human for a while. In Escalation no. 6, on the point of death, Optimus trans...
