    ...respectless and/or bloodthirsty?
    I mean, do they ever thought of some consequences?
    Or do they kill some human beeings just for fun?

    I was interested in this question, because I like doing some bloody repaints and I always thought, that they were such cruel "monsters".
    What do you guys think?

    They think of humans like we think of ants.

    They think of humans as disgusting underevolved fleshbags who are not powerful enough to deserve to live. At least megatron and starscream do, from their reactions to sam.
    They have respect for all decepticons and autobots that can beat the crap out of them.

    There's some blood in the comics. It took Starscream quite some time to remove Sector 7 Agent Salazar bits from his gears and cockpit.

    Decepticons are awesome. I'd support them but Optimus Prime gets my vote.

    Ah...so it works!
    Hmm... I´d like to see som more of this stuff... it brings out the decepticon-nature better than some sentences like: "Uhm...I hate fleshlings!"...

    Do you respect the insect that crawls under your feet? Or the rodent in the basement as you release the gas into it's home? Or the fly buzzing around your head that you swat and smear across the table?

    That's how the Decepticons view us. Pests, insects, filthy, annoying little fleshbags not even worth a second thought as they scrap us from their heels. We are not a not "life" to them, we are a worthless infestation on a primitive planet waiting for a superior creature to wipe us out.

    Hmm... ok, that makes sense to me.
    But why is this behaviour not shown? I mean, if they are so brutal, why are they shown like they were something that don´t have to do something with humans, even if they hate humans and "love" to supress and kill them? I thought that is their attitude to human beeings....

    Perfect analogy/take on the movie Decepticon cause. Couldn't say it better.

    The movieverse Decepticons are just the predictable "we're evil and hate everyone for no real reason" that pretty much is the standard for all bad guys nowadays. Only difference is that the movieverse Cons suck, only ones that were useful were Soundwave and Ravage, the guy who didn't even come to earth and the small one, nice

    I think it's a mixture of both.

    Most Decepticons view us as underlings, a species to be exterminated like vermin. We are in no way as intelligent as they are, and they know it. They believe that because we are not equal, we do not deserve to live.

    Plus, a lot of Decepticons just like killing people and making destructicon, so yeah, that probably doesn't help.

    Decepticons, I imagine them saying we go "squish" when they step on us.

    Well the Decepticons are like the Decepticons from any other Transformers series, except with less character development.

    Probably, but not as much as you may think. Lack of character development(or just plain character at all)+demonstartion of a single character trait=interpreting said party's character revolving completely around said trait.
