    Like make the distraction with the falling ship BEFORE he gets executed, then have him fight with Soundwave. Soundwave then kills him while uttering "Soundwave superior, Autobots inferior".

    Spoiler on thread title is not allowe-- Why do I even try? I feel like I'm trying to stop the ocean with my finger.

    Besides, Barricade needed his badass moment.

    I feel like he should've had a gizmo on his body in case he was high-stressed, and taken out at least one 'Con in a super geeky way before biting it.

    Agreed. Barricade killing Que off like that was badass and I wouldn't have had it any other way.

    No. No, no, no, no, no.

    Sometimes you don't get a cool death, sometimes you don't die with dignity, sometimes people just get killed in really sad ways.

    yeah. while i love that his death recieved sympathy from the audience as well as morning from bee, a little bit of a fight from him would have been goo. but i'm not complaining with what we got.

    His death was one of best, most poiniant scenes in the franchise, especially how it set up the sheer helplessness of Sam for Bumblebee's (aborted) execution. It shouldn't have gone down any other way. This was one of my most favorite scenes in the film.

    I thought his death was sad, so no. It was meant to be a sad moment leading up to Bee's execution, so it worked.

    As much as I love the character, it was a sad moment, and he got more acknowledgement than anyone else in the series. Bumblebee said goodbye and ran up to Que's body and reached out for him. That was pretty damn sad.

    And, at the very least,
    he indirectly killed Starscream with one of his bombs, which also saved Sam's life. That's a pretty bad ass thing to do.

    I liked how Wheeljack's death was kind of sad and "pathetic" (for want of a better word), but I would have liked it if he tried to whip out and use one of his gadgets, only for it to fail.

    It was a perfect death. Not everyone needs a cool death.

    Honestly, I had forgotten he was even in the movie until he was shot. I probably would have tried to build his character up more before he was killed. And besides, if Jazz was killed, what chance did this guy have?
    (I guess I am still hurt by Jazz being ripped in two...)

    I liked how his death was done, but the main problem is the fact that we didn't get to know the character at all. In fact I completly forgot he was in the movie by that point, so a lot of emotion was lost because of that. If the had built up the charater to be a love able nutty crazy, funny scientist dude his death could have been really emotional.

    But the most I gout out of the death was "Oh...well ok....that different form book...hmm..."

    The only emotional death in the movie for me were Brain and Wheelie since the movie really made me like the little guys.
