Barricade foreshadowing

Postby Wing Saber » Mon Jun 20, 2011 10:43 am

Supposedly, in the first film, right before Barricade smashes Bumblebee, Barricade shouts something that sounds like "This is for the ark!" possible foreshadowing to the third film?

I'm rewatching the scene in question and, having rewound the scene on my DVD again and again, he's definitely not saying "Ark". Though, he does sound like he's at least saying "This one's..." Though, like the guy in the YouTube video wrote, no subtitles show up for that line and he could be speaking Cybertronian when he says that. But, it's just sounds too fuzzy to make out what he's really saying in that part (if he is saying anything in English at all).

Plus, it wouldn't make sense for him to mention the Ark in Movie 1, since the Ark from DOTM was conceived after the second movie. The Ark from the Movie 1 fiction, however, is a different Ark from the one in DOTM, and the Decepticons had no interest in that Ark.

Though... this does have me thinking. Why exactly would Barricade (or any Decepticon) want to avenge to Ark? I mean, it was an Autobot craft. And it's fate was never made known to Cybertron. I can understand them wanting to avenge a Decepticon vessel like one of the two Nemesises, but neither of those ships were beaten down by Autobots, so there's no need to avenge them either. The guy who originally thought he heard this must have been thinking too much. :P

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Perhaps there could have been some sort of battle before or during it's takeoff from Cybertron

Yeah, but the Cons would have wnated for themselves. It'd make more sense for the Autobots to want to avenge there own ship.
