    I'm tired of the way the Autobots always kill the Decepticons by a face/head death. Can't they die like Brawl for once by getting shot multiple times, sure it will take time but the Autobots are already unstoppleble might as well let them take their time.

    Wrong forum, and it makes sense to go for the head. Then there's no chance of them coming back as a zombie. Also it's quicker and could be seen as the most "humane" way of killing them most of the time. It's quicker and means less overall suffering.

    To be fair, the Prime bots do have a bit of a tendency to target the head as well. Let's not forget, Arcee decapitated a dude with her heels. HER HEELS.

    Always.

    It's not so much the Decepticons die but it looks like they die way too easily.

    TF1
    Frenzy
    Bonecrusher

    ROTF
    Demolishor
    The Fallen
    Megatron (not a death but quite a server injury)
    Grindor
    Scorponok
    (sam pulling the head of the insecticon?)

    DOTM
    Starscream
    Cranckcase
    Crowbar
    Megatron
    Sentinel
    Shockwave
    Soundwave
    Leaserbeak

    as the math shows, TF4 will have about 16 head related deaths

    "Remove the head and the body shall die."

    It's the fastest and most effective way to take down your target. I have no problem with it.

    I for one do. Mainly because it's visually gory and I feel excessively violent ways of killing should be reserved for extreme situations and villians. Not to mention that the Decepticons look like victims... how many headshots do they manage in the ENTIRE series? ZERO.

    I'd have less problems with any of this if both sides did the same things, but it seems the bad guys in the movies, despite having numbers and 'supposedly winning' the war are too stupid to target the head. The fact that the Autobots were outnumbered 200 to 9 and still never seemed to be underdogs is pathetic. Showing the Cons be equally effective as killers would have made the movies better overall... It's amazing how imposing and threatening they were in the first movie, and then became total bitches after that. Not to mention the first movie didn't have all of the Cons die by head injuries.

    I also hate the argument that headshots prevent them from coming back as zombies, while often the same people say if you didn't decapitate them, they could be repaired, they're robots!! If that's the case, a new head could be built and their spark could just be repowered, since they're just 'robots.'

    I think the excessive head kills are just the product of Michael Bay's lack of imaginative ways to kill without being gory, and fits in with his 'badass heros who don't take no shit' schtick. It's the reason I enjoyed the films, but I'm very ready for another director who's as concerned with the dramatic and moral elements of the characters involved as opposed to only their onscreen action potential.

    Head is the quickest and most effective? (not the spark chamber because it's too heavily armored)

    I'm kind of hoping some of those Cybertronian growls and beeps translated to "Oh Primus not the face NOT THE FACE".

    Also there were cons in DOTM that died other ways. Yes Soundwave did lose his head but Im sure the blast that ripped up through his chest into his head by BB's cannon, killed Soundwave before his head was even gone.

    Many cons died by OP's sword and were just chopped down, not beheaded in any way.

    The wreckers ripped that Con pilot apart, piece by piece.

    And if you include other films, you have stuff like Ravage getting skinned and Rampage (?) getting his arms ripped off / back broken / whatever.

    Most Protoforms are killed with a shot [or sword] in the chest/abdomen though.
