    Pattern = Badassery then death.
    '07 - Jazz, Ironhide, Ratchet vs Brawl -> Jazz dies

    RotF - Forest battle Optimus vs Megs, Scream, and Grindor -> Optimus dies

    DotM - 4-way standoff Ironhide, Sideswipe vs the Dreads -> Ironhide dies


    Is this one of those Bay formulas?

    Shocking. When robots fight, someone dies at the end.

    Well, I've found there is a pattern as to who dies and lives when it comes to the Leader Class figures

    Movie 1: Leaders are Megatron, Optimus, and Brawl. Optimus lives, the other two die

    ROTF: Optimus, Megatron, Jetfire. Megatron lives, Optimus dies (the fact he was resurrected does not change that fact), and Jetfire dies (by suicide).

    DOTM: Bumblebee, Sentinel, Ironhide. Even without seeing the movie, it's obvious Bumblebee will never die in a movie, he's worth too much to toy and car sales to Hasbro and GM, respectively. So, by rule of elimination, that automatically means Sentinel and Ironhide die in the movie. Which they do.

    Arcee stands around and talks -> Arcee dies

    Jetfire rips Mixmaster apart and skills Skorponok -> Jetfire dies

    The Twins fight Devastator -> the Twins sucked into a plot hole and never seen again

    Jolt combines Jetfire and Optimus -> Jolt gets sucked into a plot hole and never seen again

    Isn't that just like a woman? :p 

    But seriously, it also seems that when bots stand around and talk, they get canned.

    The same happened with Optimus in ROTF- he takes a moment out of the battle to look around yelling, 'Sam! Where are you?' and then Megatron takes him out.
