    I mean it would be awesome to see him haunt Megs around wouldnt it?
    Seeking revenge and wanting to get a body? Or is it too much "Starscream's Ghost" or "Ghost in the Machine"? But it would have to be a minor thing in a movie.
    Personaly, I'd like to see his Ghost (and not just because he's my favourite TF).

    I voted 'no'. Movie Starscream didn't have enough of a personality for me to care enough to see his ghost.
    Now if they develop his personality more in the sequel, I'd still vote 'no' because I wouldn't want a good character to die.

    A transformer ghost? Well they'd need a good explanation for that.

    Nah, I think I'd avoid the ghost thing for live action TFs.

    I'd say not; the whole ghost Starscream idea was one of the daftest story contrivances in G1, and always played as a flimsy excuse to shoehorn a popular character back into the show, rather than as any kind of believable plot development. I know Beast Wars and so forth did their best to retcon the idea into something more consistent, but it doesn't change the fact that having a robot come back as a ghost is fundamentally a very silly idea, especially if that robot is shown to be the only robot who can do it...

    I could see some kind of energon or Allspark fuelled energy version of a destroyed Starscream exisiting for a few brief seconds before it faded away as a small nod to the concept of Starscream's ghost, as maybe his body is blasted away suddenly leaving an apparition behind, but I don't think it could be properly sustained as an actual character part of a story within the tone set down in BayFormers.
    So, not really as a ghost, but as a brief echo of a dying Transformer.

    No, but if they did kill him they might be able to say his spark survived somehow and have it cause havoc, maybe infecting computer systems around the world or something.

    Personally I want them to develop his character more before they even consider killing him.

    The ghost thing worked fine in G1... but there's no way it would make sense in the live-action movies, and besides, I don't think Bay would think a ghost of a character would be bad-ass enough or even consider having someone's ghost be integral to the story.

    No. That idea was only good in the 80's cartoon, and should stay in the 80's cartoon.

    It would seem too far out of place in these movies, so no.

    Since Transformers are AI couldn't they be susceptible to a Cybertronian computer virus?

    What if Starscream's spark became a virus that infected other Transformers, so only an infected bot could see and hear him and even controlled by him?

    If they brought Megatron back it could be a way to have Megatron be insane as Galvatron was, seeing him shout and argue with someone who isn't there.

    If you see his spark transfer into another body, then Jazz's death will be one of the dumbest holes ever.

    I like the computer virus angle!

    It made a pretty rad BW episode... Though his voice was terrible.
