    Taking a brief stop from DOTM-related discussion, I would like to know what you guys think of the Ax Crazy Decepticon Doctor [that talked in a hercule-strong german accent] from Revenge of the Fallen, known for his legendary phrase: "VE MUZT HAFF ZE BRAIN ON DE TABLE, CHOP-CHOP!"

    He even survived the movie! [though he dies in the novel, sadly].

    I personally think this is the best character created by the movie-verse, just pure and contrived madness and fun into a small 'Con, shame he had so little screen-time.

    What do you guys think of him?

    Hated him his dialouge time could have gone too someone else IMO. What was the point of him anyways Megatron should be able too take Sam's brain on his own he doesn't need some little drones help. Waist of a character in my eye.

    I liked it at the time. The novelty may have worn off.

    Loved him! He and Jetfire where the higlights of ROTF! They were actually fun characters unlike most of the bots from ROTF that were simply there for the CGI porn and did't do anything...

    Megs might very well have been capable of taking Sam's brain, but only Ze Doctor was capable of extracting any information from it which was kinda the point, otherwise Megs would've just stood on him when he had the chance.

    Anyhoo's...

    Yeah, Doctor Scalpel was awesome. Such a maniacal little sadist, be nice if he popped up with a small cameo in DOTM.

    Wait, you're asking the utility of the guy that REVIVED MEGATRON?

    Also, he was there because he [as the movie shows] apparently has the ability of stealing people's thoughts [that's what he did to Sam with a small spider-like Drone that entered through his nose], having "ZE BRAIN ON DZE TABLE" was just his Ax Crazy Nature speaking on a loud voice.

    As his toy bio mentions: He loves to disassemble organical beings and see what they're made of, but has some troubles when re-assembling it.

    Maybe that Spider-thing Megatron takes out of his damaged head?

    I forgot, indeed.
    But everyone knows that quote, even people that never heard about the Transformers live-action movies, is among the most remembered ROTF quotes [alongside "Decepticons Mobilize", "Cowards DO survive" e "The Cube is Only a vessel"].

    Scapel is pure awesome. He just crawls around like a little crab. Oh, and yes. 'Keel Ze Littel Von!" Is the best line.


    Can't say the same for his toy, though.

    He was fine by me, the only real problem is that he was never referred to by his name. "Doctor" is a sub par name for a Transformer. Lacks imagination, character. Scalpel on the other hand is the perfect name for the character.

    I love Ze Doctor. His little german ass provided me with much entertainment over the course of the film. ("Course of the film". lol, he had two scenes.)

    Now that I thought on that, he's even more awesome because of his German accent: You see, as he is not human [nor born in germany] he likely picked that accent to deliberately evoke the MAD NAZI DOKTOR image.

    He's a Card Carrying Villain too, it seems.

    No offense intended. I just mean for that character, Scalpel would have been an awesome name. His small size, sinewy, blade-like design and movements are much more suited to a "Scalpel" than a "Doctor".
