    To bring back a famous TFW meme - I hereby state that while Optimus WAS a dick, Sentinel Prime officially takes over that role.

    So yeah, Sentinel Prime is a dick.

    PG-13 - carry on.

    I fully expected Sentinel to start yelling at people to get out of his yard.

    I hated him passionately the first time through, but I felt a tinge of sadness during his final seconds.

    I could very well imagine the pain that Optimus was in: someone he believed in and looked up to had betrayed him, and in the end, attempts to tear him limb from limb.

    I think it should be the character trait that each Sentinel tries to out-dick the other....and this guy has set the bar high.

    Indeed. Sentinel is a dick.

    We need TFR strips of Sentinel being a dick.

    Sentinel is definitely a dick. I can't help but like a liiiittle, though. Just a little.
    But after seeing him kill Ironhide, I was like,
    "That son of a b!#&h!"

    I didn't mind him being a dick though, I just saw him as a cantankerous old man who's trying to help out (but ends up making big messes instead)

    If I was a kid, I'd probably be recreating that scene on the LaSalle St bridge where Optimus rams into Sentinel against the side of the bridge.

    I kinda think Sentinel was a character to be pitied. The death and destruction had pushed him so far over the edge from being the leader that taught Optimus. He had gone mad.


    I did dig the Spock quote though...that was cool!

    Hahahaaaaaa! He so totally did.

    No wonder why Optimus Prime is so beloved as a leader.
    At least he wasn't a dick like Sentinal was. I wonder if he was like that in G1, or any of the other continuities?

    well in War Within, he was a hand
    In Megs: Origin he was a bit of a lax leader
    and in WFC he just didn't seem to care any more

    If this had happened, this would have been the greatest movie ever made. Especially if he waved a cane around (a la movie-verse Jetfire).

    Jokes aside, I see Sentinel as more of a tragic villain and so couldn't hate him. The Cybertronians are a broken people with a dead home world and a culture on its last legs. He was doing what he felt was necessary to save what was left. He's what Optimus could have been if Optimus hadn't learned to allow compassion to override desperation.

    Killing Ironhide made him the most Dickish Sentinel I've ever seen. And I thought Animated Sentinel was a dick.

    He is very similar to Master Xehanort - he's voiced by Leonard Nimoy, he is sort of like one of the "real deal originals" being a Prime; he believes what he is doing is for the greater good; and he is almost sadistically happy to kill anyone in his way (Eraqus, Maleficent, Ironhide, the human race, Megatron) of his plans. It makes both Sentinel and Xehanort a bit of tragic villains, since they believe they're right, yet fell down the dark path.

    Leonard Nimoy does a masterful performance as Sentinel and Xehanort. I got chills hearing Sentinel declare, "We were Gods once, but here we are called machines. What war destroyed, we can rebuild!"

    Sentinel despite being the dick he is, is now my favorite incarnation of Sentinel, and I never thought that I would love a movie character over an Animated character (no disrespect, but I never thought we'd see a character as well written as Sentinel in a Bay film).

    Yeah, but where would I put him? With the other Autobots? The guy killed Ironhide. With the decepticons? He was being his dick self to Megatron, who turned around and kicked his ass.

    Hell, I might just buy him to end the nonstop war between my factions.

    "Hey Megatron, wanna call truce as long as he's here? That bastard screwed us both."
    "Nobody betrays Megatron, let's kick his ass!"
