    Aside from the characters that I figured would be pretty damn badass such as the main villains, Crankcase, etc. I was really surprised with Laserbeak. I got the toy because I wanted to complete the movieverse beastformer tri-fecta, and I actually really like the design, but after actually seeing him in action in the film, holy crap was he badass. And having him actually talk, completely unexpected and actually really well done. He was creepy, badass, and effective. Definitely the best of the movieverse beasts.

    Anyone else impressed with the ugly lil' bastard?

    The part where he transformed into that mini pink Bumblebee was kinda creepy. Other than than he was pretty cool. Had a lot more screen time than Frenzy or Ravage ever did.

    The Soundwave minions were all useful in the movie series.

    I think he could lead the Cons better than Megatron/Shockwave/Soundwave/Starscream combined. He's had that much more character and that much more awesome. One of the reasons why I could walk out happy.

    I think he stole the show during the movie's first half. I totally think of him as a breakthrough character in this film. :D

    I'll just say that the creepiest scene in the movie was when he was playing with the girl, when you think of it in the meta sense.

    It was brilliant to have him look like bumblebee because bumblebee's the one all the kids know, that all the kids like.
    Of course the kid would have no problem playing with him, what's more innocent than bumblebee coming over to play?

    He perverted bumblebee's image for fun and profit. :ev: 

    I'm rethinking skipping his toy, that's for sure.

    Uh..his head was shot off by the ship they were fighting on top of. Sam held his head up in front of the gun.

    Squeezed his head off?
    He forced his head in front of a turret for Bumblebee to push the trigger.

    lazerbeak was amazing. way better than i had anticipated. i only wish that when soundwave sent lazerbeak on his mission he said "operation: kill them all" instead of just "kill them all"

    Laserbeak was one of my favourite characters. IMO he was a better minion than Ravage.

    Laserbeak was a total badass. I really liked the scene when he punked that Wang dude... and became the pink Bumblebee, of course. Killing that bird in Africa was hilarious.

    Laserbeak was tied for my favorite new character in the movie with Sentinel Prime. He was absolutely sinister and diabolical! He seriously picked up the slack where Soundwave basically did nothing in the movie.

    Laserbeak was the best done robot in the whole film (and one of the best in the whole trilogy). He was creepy as hell, and I loved how ruthless he was in his executions. He had nice little moments of evil, like shooting the bird in Africa. The amount of dialogue he got was surprising, but I loved every line. His voice was the creepiest thing about him.

    Loved Laserbeak, and I wish the other Decepticons could've gotten such great characterization.

    Like I just mentioned in another post, Laserbeak totally stole the movie for me. When he first spoke, my jaw quite literally fell open. So unexpected, yet so perfect at the same time. Perched up on the ledge at Chernobyl, shooting the bird in Africa, the way he perched on Soundwave, assassinating the human contacts.. way too many scenes to pick out from as his best.

    Though turning into a pink Bumblebee is, without a doubt, one of the strangest moves they could've pulled. Would I rather that scene be left out? Probably. Does it make me like Laserbeak any less? Not at all.
