Question: Mearing says that the Xantium brought the second wave of Autobots. Which wave does she mean? Because so far, there have been three waves: Optimus, Jazz, Ironhide, Bumblebee and Ratchet, Sideswipe, The Twins, Arcee, Chromia, and Flareup and lastly, The Wreckers, Brains, Dino and Wheeljack. Which one didn't arrive by ship, and how did they arrive?


Chosen answer: Optimus, Jazz, Ironhide, Bumblebee and Rachet all arrived on Earth via separate pods which carried them in Transformers (2007). Sideswipe, The Twins, Arcee, Chormia and Flareup are wave one, introduced into Revenge Of The Fallen. The Wreckers, Brains, Dino (Mirage) and Wheeljack are wave two, introduced in Dark Of The Moon.


Answer: All the Autobots after the first movie like sideswipe, the twins, the wreckers and even Wheeljack are all from the second wave but were just in different places doing different things. When the wreckers are first introduced it is mentioned that they came down with the second wave but just never leave site. So they weren't seen during the second film because they spent their time on site with the ship. As for the others, Wheeljack is a top scientist and was probably too busy making weapons etc somewhere. Brains and Dino could have been ex Decepticons who changed to the Autobots side after the second movie or if they were Autobots from the start where just somewhere else at the time. Brian's being pretty small probably didn't want to be involved in the battles etc. and could have been helping the humans or Wheeljack somewhere, and seeing a Dino has an Italian accent could have been doing other work elsewhere in the word.
