    This topic is for those who have seen the movie so if you haven't and don't wish to be spoiled, please leave now.

    In the prisoner scene of DOTM, Bumblebee effectively made me love him. Me, the Bumblebee hater who honestly wanted that little bastard to die a very painful death instead of Ironhide. The way he broke down when Q was killed ("He was my oldest friend.") just melted my heart. :( 

    Then, when Soundwave forced Bumblebee onto Wheeljack's lifeless body then brought back up to execute him, I was getting worried. If Bumblebee was killed after the traumitising execution of Q, I don't think Sam could have taken it. When Sam sat there crying his eyes out but unable to move his gaze from Bumblebee, my eyes got pretty misty. Then Bumblebee saw Sam and his expression was horrible. I was so sorry for both of them and with the blaster warming up right behind his head I was thinking: No Bumblebee!:cry 

    Then Brains and Wheelie saved the day. I loved those guys.

    I know, then Bumblebee springs into action and kills all the damn Cons that were holding them prisoner including a very cool death for Soundwave. Go Bumblebee :D

    Bumblebee was definitely a lot better in this film. Not the codependant psychopath he was in ROTF...

    I loved that reference. I'm glad Bumblebee didn't kill Barricade as well though because that would be too much like Optimus "I'm freakin' Chuck Norris" Prime. :bay

    Did you notice it was Barricade keeping an eye on Bumblebee when they were rounded up? A nice call back to the first movie when Barricade lost the fight with Bumblebee.

    Yeah, I was actually surprised that Wheelie and Brains actually did something and indirectly ended up saving Bumblebee and possibly others. And I didn't notice the (probably unintentional) G1 reference for the relationship between BB and Wheeljack.

    As a massive Bumblebee fan it was quite sad, especially seeing the orange glow of soundwaves blaster humming to life. As they ubermelted ironhide.. i thought oh no maybe they will kill my favourite character off as a last hurrah!

    Thank god they didnt as my god soundwave deserved the cannon to the chest explosm!
