    Can't tell if serious... Are you complaining that they're no good from a writing POV or from a personal "I do not like parachutes"-view? :sly2: 

    I'd argue that they were awesome (well, as awesome as flat parachutes can be) during Optimus' resurrection. They were a great way to reveal him as he arose and a great way for the visual effects artists to transition from the on-set, life-sized prop of Optimus' lower body (with CG torso) to the full CG robot.

    :lol  I agree with THIS, because it shows parachutes aren't always bad and can be used humorously! :)

    They're also a pretty badass way for the Autobot leader to make his big badass entry into ROTF.

    Parachutes only ruin your day if you're a Decepticon (Jetfire excluded).

    So in a 1v1 fight, a Parachute would kill Shockwave.
    I can see that happening.

    Those of us who played Battlefield 2 know the plight of the invincible parachute.

    Yeah, totally. They're always getting in the way of dying.

    THIS.

    :lol  I guess Bay got a chance to hint at this idea with those two dramatic shots in DotM of the Autobots standing in front of the American flag.

    Are we really still saying that it's because of a parachute that Shockwave died? Really?

    And this is why DOTM Shockwave sucked.

    *sigh* He could have been cool or badass but instead we got wannabe cool Boba Fett.

    I was hoping they'd work the SR71s design eccentricity of leaking oil while not flying into an incontinence gag, but no, we got farting parachutes instead.

    Me no gusta.

    Though to his credit, Shockwave had a more dignified death.

    Boba Fett got taken out by a blind - A BLIND - Han Solo, who pulls a Three-Stooges gag and smacks his jet pack, causing him to launch into the side of Jabba's sail barge, then he falls right into the Sarlac pit. That, everyone, is why I NEVER saw Boba Fett as a bad-ass.

    Shockwave gets distracted by a parachute landing on his face, then gets blasted in the side of the face, damaging his eye. And even then, he's still putting up a fight. It took a Ragin' Cajun Optimus to completely take the guy down.
