    Does anyone think Optimus Prime should've killed Sentinel with his own big gun, instead of Megatron's? Like transforming his hand into the gun and then just shoot em? Personally I would like to see him kill Sentinel with his own gun, but Megatron's gun was cool too.

    I think he should have killed Sentinel with his Rust Cannon.

    Like in the novel.

    It would've been cool, but pretty greusome.

    Oh, well. I managed through Ironhide's death without passing out, so bring it on!

    What I want to know is this: Optimus fired off 2 shots with Megatron's shotgun, and only had one hand and arm, and the gun handle didn't leave his only hand . . how did he cock the second shot?

    Optimus used the rust gun against Sentinel in the novel. I would have preferred it if this happened in the actual film. Sentinel getting a taste of his own medicine. It would be ironic. The weapon he began his betrayal with is the one that ends his life.

    He sure did. Just watched the scene to confirm. You can see his hand cocking it between shots and finally releasing it before he fires the last shot.

    Either way, I just think it would've been a nice karmic ending for him, on behalf of Ironhide.

    I have to agree with those wanting Sentinel to get hit with the rust gun. As much as I liked his execution, it would have been even more fitting to do it with the gun that killed Ironhide.

    There's a fine line between justice and revenge. Say what you will about Prime's character, but he did what he had to do, and served up Justice.

    You could also argue that good guys don't execute their enemies as well. Not saying that's how I feel on the subject, but...I have a horrible vision of this thread turning into one of those "Optimus shouldn't kill!!!1!"-threads. :confused2 

    This. I guess you could say that Optimus... :cool:  ...made the hard decision. YEEEEEEAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!

    As for the "cocking" issue. How did Optimus get two shots off without recharging the weapon? Because Optimus Prime, that's why. Megatron may need to, but according to RotF, Optimus doesn't. He can do it one-handed. ;)

    Good guys don't tear people's faces off, either.

    Sorry, had to say it...

    Optimus was Going to rust-kill Sentinel with his own cannon in the early ideas when it was planned to have Megatron truly redeeming himself and helping optimus for real in his fight with sentinel.

    Optimus doesn't seem to be one for "enjoying" killing his victims, he knows the ones who need to be put down need to be put down.

    This is true, and I'm extremely happy to have an Optimus who understands this.

    But then we'd lose the imagery of Optimus tossing his weapon away in disgust if it just came out of his hand.

    Actually he did. Only he did so by hand.
