    I was just wondering what peoples thoughts were on this; after seeing dark of the moon and seeing just how much laserbeak owned it reminded me that he was always on the ball in G1 too.

    So what do you guys think?

    Oh you would get little to no argument from me there.
    Except maybe Sixshot as he did ice Magnus pretty handily.

    Definitely very lethal and very good at what he does. Best movie Decepticon by far. I wish more Decepticons would follow his example.

    He pretty much is. Hell, in the first episode he chases two Autobots going in two different directions simultaneously. That's some skill right there.

    DOTM Laserbeak could wipe the floor with Buzzsaw's ass any day.

    Laserbeak is one of the most reliable Decepticons of all time. Watching him punk out a fleeing Starscream and carry him back to Megatron in "A Prime Problem" was awesome.

    In the 80's movie he was really the reason why ironhide and his crew plus prime died.

    He practically killed Optimus Prime all by himself in one episode as well.

    Laserbeak has some mad skills.

    He also took Optimus down almost immediately after OP beat the shit out of all three Seekers at once.

    It always amazed me how Laserbeak's G1 bio read.

    He's Coward. and yet this coward has more courage than Starscream and in some cases even Megatron himself, and has never once failed a single mission given to him. I'm betting he'd make a better leader of the Decepticons as well.

    ALL HAIL LASERBEAK!

    Thinking about it, all the original Decepticon cassette bots have a history of getting stuff done that puts their larger comrades to shame.

    Lazerbeak & Buzzsaw, Ravage, Frenzy & Rumble, not to be messed with. Hell, wasn't Ratbat running the cons at one point?

    Lazerbeak has always been the go-to con so long as you need someone to hide and spy on the enemy with very little chance of combat. In the movie he did what he does best. Beat up on humans.

    Yup, thinking about it. Laserbeak is actually the 'Cons ace in the hole throughout G1.

    DOTM adds to this though - SPOILER - like all the significant Cons, he goes down too easily.

    Then, in Animated he's a goddam Flying V axe. That right there, is the cherry on top of the cake.

    Also Lazerbeak's Fury is the best Ladybird TF book.

    Laserbeak should be a hall of famer for next year.

    Although i'd still vote for Scourge.

    Most competent? I won't deny it.

    Buzzsaw is the most ruthless and powerful, however.

    That's probably why they get along so well.
