    SPOILERS AHEAD!!! If you dont want to be spoiled go away right now!!!


    --


    Arent you happy that Sideswipe is being treated as a main character? I mean he gets so much action this time around and with this movie being the last and many bots dying I expected him to die (well we dont know if he does survive in the movie, but he does survive in the novels)
    not even IH survived, its just the main bots OP, BB, Ratchet and Sideswipe (Wheelie and Brains too, but theyre small kid friendly characters so its expected ).
    That means a lot! plus he gets a big role.
    He kills the dreads alongside BB and Mirage, he tags along with Ironhide too (I hope he shows sadness towards that too since IH is like his mentor), he is held captive and is strongly affected by Mirages death, he is there in the final battle too.
    Im looking forward to see him team up with Mirage...on that topic I made a small GIF for all of you Sideswipe fans ^^ feel free to use.

    I don't see him being "treated as a main character" as much as just being "a character that wasn't chosen to die".

    Okay...maybe "main character" is a strong word, but the fact that he gets more screentime and is one of the few that survives does mean hes got a much more important role than his last one :p

    Not really. We know he has one major action scene with the Dreads, and we know he doesn't die. Those two things do not make a main character. And his role, just like all Autobots except BB and OP, are to look cool in an action scene.

    In the novel, yes. From the spoilers we've been told by members who've seen the movie, he survives. Also, Brains and Wheelie are being rumored to die as well.

    What a shame that would be.

    Im just glad Sideswipe is getting more screen time, I love the design and it looks so fantastically fluid in motion.

    I guess youre right. =P I guess I didnt use the right word, but what I mean is that he has a much bigger role now. and Im happy about that.

    @Sideswipe77: In the novel, yes. In the movie...we dont know.

    But he doesn't. As far as we know, he has exactly what he did in ROTF: one badass action scene.

    If the novel is anything to go by, he will do MUCH more than just that. in ROTF he had one awesome scene and then just seen as BG fodder. He does much more here.

    So far we know of three major action scenes for swipes.

    SS, BB, WJ and Mirage in Iran
    SS, BB and Mirage vs dreads
    SS and ironhide vs dreads

    Also hes seen shooting in chicago so he might do some cool shit

    I dont think its that he's become a main character. I think its just that in this movie he's getting more time on screen because he's super cool to look at.

    Exactly. THIS. Plus hes in the final battle so he might indeed have some screentime killing some nameless drones/protoforms.

    No question about it that he gets plenty of screen time in DOTM. The guy to worry about is Ratchet.
