Did You Know?


One of Silas' human eyes appears to be permanently dilated (known medically as anisocoria). Not only does it match Breakdown's uneven eyes, but a permanently dilated pupil can also be a sign of serious cranial injury. See more »


[last lines]
Megatron: Cylas, you have earned your place at the table.
Cylas: Lord Megatron, I am honoured.
Megatron: Knock Out's dissection table!
Knock Out: [flanked by Vehicons] Breakdown would be tickled.
Cylas: No... Lord Megatron, why?
Megatron: Because Damocles was the best you had to offer, and it is no more. The human factor did indeed tip the scales... in favour of my enemies.
[Cylas is floored by Knock Out's energon prod]
Megatron: He will be a fascinating case to study.
Knock Out: [taps Cylas's eye-patch] I will leave no fibre OR fibre-optic unturned!
