    Frenzy, Ravage or Laserbeak?

    For me, Laserbeak. He had the largest role, he spoke intelligible English and he killed more people than Frenzy and Ravage combined.

    Laserbeak, easily. He was one of the best Decepticons in the trilogy. And Frenzy wasn't one of Soundwave's minions.

    Yes, Frenzy was one of Soundwave's minions. Always has been, Soundwave partnered him with Barricade because Barricade was his most trusted.... I want to say second-in-command.

    G1 reference to the Bayverse. Plus, Soundwave was one of the original Cons set to appear in the first TF Bay movie along with Frenzy, Ravage, Rumble and Laserbeak.

    Frenzy was originally going to be named "Soundwave." That's it.

    I'm int he minority here but I'd have to say Ravage. He was awesome: a one-eyed metal jaguar who took on a squad of NEST soldiers by himself.

    I'm not sure if Reedman counts, as he took out a soldier who didn't see him then GTFO under Ravage's cover fire.

    He still killed a NEST soldier, saved Ravage the stress of doing the kill himself lol

    Laserbeak kicked ass, they were all actually good at what they meant to do, which was espionage.

    Although I really wished we could've seen the Rhino Rumble and Beastbox from the IDW stuff in the movies, especially the latter.

    Definitely Laserbeak. He's also one of the most menacing Decepticons. His scale allowed him to interact with the human characters in a way that larger TFs never could. That's why I sometimes think that the Transformers' usually massive size works against them in storytelling.

    I'd say Laserbeak or Frenzy. But why no Rumble? He would have been good.

    Laserbeak by far.

    Ravage was okay, certainly not a failure in his own right, but he kind of had a cheap death in the way you would expect the spineless bad guys to bite the dust.

    I would also go to the length of saying Frenzy doesn't count in this context since he was with Barricade (which makes sense, due to Barry being in a role Soundwave was suggested for in the first film. The same applies to Blackout and Scorponok).


    Because Rumble was not in the movies.
