    Ive been wondering. Out of Rotf and Dotm, which Autobot groups do you contributed the most to the Autobot cause? I mean like they helped fight and stuff like that. Personally I think Wheelie and Brains. I only like group partners only. Not soully one Autobot alone.

    Probably the Wreckers. They were useful soldiers and fire support. They were also the only Autobots to never get into a dangerous situation in the DOTM final battle (Optimus nearly was killed by Sentinel, and the other Autobots were in the prisoner situation)

    As much as I hate to admit it, Wheelie and Brains. It looks like Bay chose to make the unlikable characters important in DOTM. They saved Ratchet, Sideswipe, Mirage and unfortunately Bee while taking out a squad of Con fighter craft and the flag ship.

    Wheelie and Brains win, but barely [The Wreckers coming in second place], you see:

    Wheelie and Brains.
    - Helped to find out the Russie Austronauts, keys to the plot.
    - Took down a Decepticon Mothership on their own, giving the others time to react, in short, they basically saved all the Autobot team on their own.

    The Wreckers:
    - Went against Shockwave face-to-face and helped to take him down, Shockwave being the ultimate machine of destruction in DOTM.
    - Faced Rumble/Cloverfieldbot on their own as well.

    The Twins
    - Played a bit with Devastator.

    The Sisters:
    - Tried [and failed] to fight off Sideways.
    - Tried [and failed, seeing a pattern here?] to protect Sam in the Egypt battle.

    Wheelie and Brains were the only ones that actually SAVED THE LEAD ROLES ENTIRELY ON THEIR OWN in the movie, therefore, they win.

    This is basically what I was going to say (well, at least the part about Brains and Wheelie barely beating out the Wreckers).

    Yeah well i think its official that Arcee and her sisters were a little useless in the movies. Skids and Mudflap, i think its fair to give them some credit for at least beating up Devastator a little. But the some people still dont think that they justified their part in the that which they can fight.

    Look, anyone who isn't Optimus or Bumblebee, and to a much lesser extent Ironhide and Wheelie, had almost negligible impact on the progression of the main story and that's one of the biggest issues with the Autobot cast.

    People dont just wanna see Optimus Prime and Bumblebee all the time you know. Theres other characters that should get their screen time to. Plus you dont just see Optimus and Bumblebee roll out alone all the time. Other characters are just as important.

    This is why it was a major problem with the Autobot cast. If the characters are going to be essentially superfluous and only there to sell toys, there's no point from a cinematic perspective to have them in the first place.

    That is true though. I hate how they put some characters in just to kill them. I consider it a waist of potential, time and money. Its like their basically there to be destroyed. I mean most of the Decepticons like Sideways., the Dreads and more got killed off to quickly before we got to even know them.

    That's true, but I'm conflicted as to whether I'd rather have Decepticon cannon fodder with little characterization and no purpose other than to be overcome, or bland generics that accomplish the same purpose.

    I think it bothers me more with the Autobots in the Bayverse when they just fly around in the background and have a "cool" line or two, however, because these are the guys we're supposed to be empathizing with and identifying with as an audience.

    Wheelie and Brains, of course! For they tiny size, they managed the most! Such a great damn monster they destroyed together! Bumblebee indebted to them! And they never lost presence of mind!

    Yeah but then a again the movies is only like an hour an 50 minutes long. So I guess they cant just have the robots talking throughout the hole movie but that don't mean they should have little petty lines. Sometimes I wish we could get more out of the characters, but hey we didn't make the movies.

    If there isn't enough time in a movie to actually give characters something worthwhile to do or say, they're either superfluous characters and probably shouldn't be in the film in the first place, or they're extras and shouldn't really be considered characters. How the films have USED their time is ANOTHER of the major problems I had with them.
