    So I looked at the movie again and in the execution scene most people believe it's Soundwave and Barricade who execute Que. But it's really a protoform that shoots Que first and then Barricade finishes him off. Just wondered if anyone realized that.

    * Actually i made a mistake it was Soundwave and a protoform. Barricade was still behind Bumblebee. Barricade and Soundwave's robot forms look a bit similar due to the pointy heads and pointy claws.

    Haha, this is about Example #9485832747983 of how confusing the designs STILL are for people, even after three movies. All I knew from that scene was that we had Soundwave, Barricade & some protoform - and they all looked nearly identical. I had no idea who actually did what - which seems to be an ongoing theme considering how many threads are debating it. Probably would have been smart (and a nice fan nod) if Soundwave was made blue so that he kinda stood out from the endless mass of silver colored Cons.

    I just saw the movie a 2nd time, and it looked to me like it was a protoform and Barricade that shoot Que. I saw the police door on his arm.

    Protoform shoots first, and then Barricade. Plus the next scene Soundwave is behind Bumblebee who is looking towards where Que dies. I think Soundwave laughs from off screen

    Fair enough, but these boards are pretty strong proof that despite how many people know who/what they're looking at (now), there are still TONS of others who get the bots mixed up until they finally watch the movies multiple times. That has been a common debate theme with each movie like clockwork, especially when the trailers & image stills would get posted.

    This is why I liken the movie designs to intricate tattoos. Up close they are AMAZING and insanely detailed - but from afar they are just a big mess that all blends together. In the case of the movie designs (Decepticons mainly), they are just a big mess of silver, grey & black. Starscream, Megatron, protoforms, Barricade, Blackout, Soundwave, Sideways, Grindor, The Fallen... all victims of forum confusion at one point or another. Even Shockwave - who was clearly purple in the movie - fell victim to the confusion from the trailers - it took quite a while for people to figure out who the bot was that Prime was punching through with his spiked knuckles. The giveaway wasn't even his colors - someone finally spotted his hose (yeah I know how that sounds).

    I don't think that's a big blind "Bay hater blah blah" bash either - I just always viewed it as a legitimate problem - the biggest problem, in fact - with the movies. Always wished the Cons in particular had a few more defining colors from character to character. And this latest thread addressing the latest confusion seems to clearly show us that the game hasn't changed much in 6 years. I'm not debating about it or anything - just discussing.

    It was Barricade and either Soundwave or a Protoform that killed Que.

    Barricade shoved Wheeljack into place, Soundwave was barking at Wheeljack and Barricade at a distance. A generic shot Wheeljack first, then Barricade finished 'em. Soundwave was behind Bumblebee and moved him into place to kill 'em.

    This.

    This.
    And, this.

    I saw the movie once, and locked my eyes on Barricade the whole time, and it wasn't Soundwave.
    The second time I go, I'll keep an eye out on that protoform that shoots first before Barricade, as I believed that it was only Barricade that shot.

    Thought it was Soundwave too. Bit hard to focus in 3D, and it went by rather fast.

    I had the same problem too, first time I thought it was Soundwave then I saw the movie again and it's definitely Barricade, if you look closely you can even see Soundwave with Bee in the background for a second.

    Don't even know why that was Soundwave - aside from the name, there's nothing about him that says "Soundwave" to me.

    But he wasn't blue and didn't change into a micro cassette recorder so all your points are invalid.

    Exactly. Pretty sweet scene, that's what he gets for not being Wheeljack.

    Of course, If I have a problem with how they portrayed Soundwave, it must be because I'm some Gee-Whun fan boy who wanted Soundwave to turn into a tape deck... I can't believe that fans here haven't matured at all since 2007, everything is always so black and white with you people.

    Movie Soundwave is a failure on so many levels, it's not worth even getting into because so many people here have their Bay-blinders on.
