    I have a question about Ratchet. He 1 of my top 3 fav Autobots. Any did anyone ever see him getting his fighting moment? To me he seems like he just shoots at cons all day. Also who do think it would be cool for Ratchet to fight? Personally, I wish Lockdown was in the movie since him and Ratchet have been known to be enemies.

    Ratchet did fight. He took off Brawl's arm remember? He also fought against Starscream in the first movie.

    Also, during the Autobots' run through Chicago, Ratchet shot a Decepticon on a balcony.

    True, but I wish I could see him fight 1 on 1

    DOTM

    But there's so much going on in that one little shot (Dino slicing up a Decepticon, Bumblebee shooting stuff, Decepticons dying in the foreground) that you wouldn't notice it in one viewing.

    Unfortunately, his only "fighting shining moment" was in the first film, in which he does that sweet leap-through-the-air-and-back-flip-move to slice off Brawl's arm. That and teaming up with Ironhide against Starscream.

    RotF he mostly got the shaft, but they managed to up his screentime for DotM, in which I'd say he got a good shining moment as Optimus' moon buddy. :D 

    I do wish we got a bit more of Ratchet fighting, A LOT more of Ratchet being a medic and maybe even a star-transformation scene, like Ironhide at the beginning of RotF.

    Same here. I would like to see him with his medical equipment healing his comrade's.

    Sideswipes there as well. You just can't see him.

    Sideswipe got pushed back and forced to share screen time with Dino whose basically the same character. Everything Dino did so could Sideswipe.

    This. With the exception of Sideswipe addressing Dino ("Dino, I got 'em!"), you could have merged the two characters' screentime/dialogue/screen presence and not lost a single thing. It's not like their characters interacted much physically or emotionally. Just think...

    -Remove Dino entirely.
    -Change "Dino, I got 'em!" to "'Bee, I got 'em!".
    -Given Dino's three lines of dialogue to Sideswipe.
    -Sideswipe now gets to dispatch of Hatchet.

    And *BAM*! Instantly you have one less Autobot to share screentime with and like, a 25% increase of dialogue/presence for Sideswipe. However, I like Dino, so I'm cool with him staying. :D
