    I'm sure that many of you enjoyed listening to the Decepticons tak their cybertronian words, even if it wasn't translated back to english.

    Some good examples that I really enjoyed was Starscream in TF1 leaving earth to space, in TF1, in ROTF when giving Longhaul some orders & when he made an EMP blast,the Fallens protoforms as they were landing on the aircraft carrier you could hear them talk, Rampage, Scrapper, Bonecrusher and in DOTM it was Crankcase and Crowbar as they were confronting Ironhide & Sideswipe...that was the best to date.

    Yes! I love it when they speak in Cybertronian! I don't know how to explain it, but it so cool!

    I think Crankcase and Crowbar were talking in English, but the rest, I like.

    It's interesting to hear them in thier native tone.

    They need to do some hyper-ultra-mega-motherfucking-version Blu-ray with subtitles to every single piece of Cybertronian gibberish uttered by the characters.

    Shockwave mainly, it would be awesome to find out that he was actually saying "It is only logic, OPTIMUS." in Cybertronian when he emerged alongside the Driller.

    I did not like Cybertonian, especially when characters that can speak perfect English randomly mutter something in Cybertronian in a totally different voice with totally different effects mixed in.

    Some exceptions: Crowbar and Crankcase in the Mexican standoff, and Frenzy.

    Starscream sounds so cool in Cybertronian, when he tells them to mobilize in TF1 and just before he shoots down the Autobot ship in DOTM.

    Yep, i love when they speak Cybertronian.

    Im nuts about it and the Glyphs and the Allspark xD

    But, I think Starscream doesnt speak it when leaving Earth at theend of TF1, its the sound of his trnasformation.

    Neither is he during the EMP burst.

    The part in which they speak Cybertronian the most in the trilogy is when the Decepticons report, I believe...

    If the Autobots were shown to speak Cybertronian as well, instead of always speaking in English.

    Hearing them speak Cybertronian would be awesome.

    Yes, big fan of this in the movies. Really the Cons should almost never speak English, as they don't respect humans and just want to eradicate us!

    I loved hearing Cybertronian being spoken. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Movie-verse is the first interpretation of the fiction in which we actually get to hear what Cybertronian sounds like. That left me thrilled.

    What left me not-so-thrilled, however, was the near-lack of character/personality in the delivery of those lines.

    I liked those scenes myself, kind of like a nice little throwback to the early SW and ST films where there was quite a bit of subtitled alien dialect in comparison to the later films.

    Yes, I would have loved them to speak a little. We could have gotten some banter say, between Sideswipe and Dino in front of Meary, saying not so very nice things about her, and either Optimus or Ratchet could have come in and scolded them for it, in cybertronian as well!

    I tried adding a youtube vid on here from TF1, decepticon Intro, but I couldn't find it..anyone have it ?:( 

    It's where Starscream, BrawL/Devs, Barricade, Frenzy & Bonecrusher introduce themselves.

    Awe shucks! Thanks! If I was in charge of a reboot, I would have it Ironhide, Sideswipe, Dino/Mirage and Ratchet be the main focus bots. Starscream, Blackout and Soundwave would have been my primary focal points for the Decepticons. I'd have Prime and Megatron in there, but not become primary players until maybe the third movie. I know I'll get a lot of hate, but I would completely disregard Bumblebee altogether. He could be there, but in another part of the world!

    I might add Sunstreaker in somewhere too.

    I wonder, has there been an episode or storyline where one of the Decepticons disguised themselves as one of the Autobots so they can infiltrate headquarters or something? What's stopping someone like Soundwave from imitating Sideswipe so if they got into a fight, the other fellow Autobots or human soldiers wouldn't know which one was which to help out?
