Goofs

When we last saw the body of Optimus Prime, it was battered and junked beyond repair, with many of his body parts missing. Then, an explosion destroyed both him and his ship. In this episode, however, the ship is intact, as well as the body of Prime. Yet, for some reason, he is lifeless and unconscious, even though he was alive priorly. See more »
