    and maybe I shouldn't of laughed at this scene, but I didn't notice it my first showing....


    but when Starscream is flailing around with the grapple hook and the boomstick in his eyes with Lennox and Sam on the hook, he says....

    "I'm gonna KICK you!"

    then attempts to kick them....and misses.

    I don't know why, maybe I heard it wrong, but it's like he didn't even try to hard to kick them.

    Now, what confuzzles me.....is that if he couldn't see, how the hell did he manage to just miss kicking them when they were going up?

    Starscream was bad ass up until that point. >.>

    It's kind of hard to kick something when you're agonizing in pain and can't see one damn thing.

    The whole point was he kicked RIGHT in their direction, and his foot went under them right when they were going up.

    He could guess their direction, but due the sheer pain and the fact he was BLIND, he couldn't grasp where they were precisely.

    I UNDERSTAND he was BLIND, which I pointed out in my first post.

    I thought the way he said "I'm gonna kick you!" and him actually calling it out and trying was just funny, but like I said, it's odd that it was a "close call", based on throughout that whole thing Starscream was a jumping, bumbling buffoon.

    Starscream [on the movie-verse] works like this:

    1 - Total badass in the air [See Shuttle takedown, Planes destruction on Mission City, Air Troops attack on Chicago, Ironhide and Ratchet getting owned on Mission City].

    2 - Whiny coward in the ground.

    Besides, you'd be kind of a bumbling buffon too if someone just sliced both of your eyes with a samurai sword.

    Be more specific, I said at least three different things on my post.

    clearly Starscream is capable of massive ass kicking. However he underestimated the humans and got his shit messed up for it.
