    First off I want to say I don't want any shit about spoiling you guys because I tried to put a big ass warning in the title and I will say again there are going to be MAJOR

    SPOILERS












    Okay, because my favourite character is killed in the movie and according to some spoilers a few others that I quite like are killed as well, I would like to use this thread for people to envision more suitable deaths for their favourite characters (assuming at least one dies). Include a realistic death and a totally awesome death if you want. Have fun!

    Ironhide, if he dies, MUST have a heroic death, I mean like holding off tons of decepticons so optimus and sam could escape something. Something along the lines of that is how I'd have ironhide go down.
    Oh and good idea with the giant warning. :thumb

    Frankly if LSOTW taught me anything, it's that people dying in "stupid, pointless" ways leaves far more of an impact than "generic heroic way to die #176." It makes it sadder and more realistic.

    I'm fine with the death.. kind of expected it.

    Before any details came out, I envisoned the following send off..

    Shockwave makes his big move, and space bridges in Trypticon who starts destroying Chicago on a massive scale. Prime and Sentinel fly in with the Ark and are able to force Trypticon back towards the gate as Ironhide realizes he has to blow up the bridge to stop Trypticon, and ends up blowing up the bridge with himself, taking half of Trypticon out who was halfway through the portal.

    No body, memorial by Prime at the end. Leave some hope for a return.

    If Ironhide dies, he better die in Sideswipes arms

    Optimus should kill megatron with a cannon, sword or gatling gun

    OP should slice away at Shockwave

    Sideswipe should kill dreads with Ironhide

    Agreed.
    While Ironhide's death is used to show how deep Sentinel's betrayal goes, I'd rather have seen him go down fighting.

    True, but, there are some characters you want to see make a last stand. It may not be realistic, but it makes for a better story.

    you get your wish with one of those. :)

    It'll certainly be the
    death that sparks the biggest twist in the movie. And plus, before his death, Ironhide comes in and cleans up two or four Dreads after Sideswipe, the Ferrarri (apaprently not Mirage...) and Bumblebee. It'll definitely be memorable.

    I'm just happy that Starscream
    goes out with a bang, which, according to AICN, will be louder and bigger than all other explosions in the movie.

    Actually, two of those are correct if the book and comic adaptation is accurate enough to the final cut.

    I really hate the way
    Wheeljack dies by falling through a crack and then just kinda giving up and being torn apart
    in the book adaptation. If it's the same in the film i will be sorely disappointed.

    That said i'm not really bothered about him dying, i would be happy if he was gunned down in battle in a blaze of glory, i just want the other characters to care at least a little bit!

    Well to be fair
    Ironhide's death will be totally memorable since it also reveals Sentinel Prime's betrayal. It won't be totally pointless or meaningless like Jazz's death. Also it would make sense that Ironhide get taken out first. Sentinel is seen as a war hero and is highly trusted by Ironhide and Optimus Prime, since he was also their mentor. So he'll be the last person they expect to be working with the Decepticons.

    I'm gonna be sad to see Ironhide get it, but storywise it works well. It cements Sentinel Prime as a credible threat and as the main villain of the story, whilst at the same time creating an emotional response by offing one of the Autobots who has been there since the first movie. It IS a crappy end for a character who would have wanted to go out swinging, but I think thats the whole point of it.

    Though I doubt his death will be as graphic as it was in the novel with the dissolving business.

    I also hope his death is at least mentioned by Optimus at some point after it happens and we don't get just another "Aww Jazz" moment.

    Anyway, we shall see.

    So we have to hide the spoilers under black since then op said this is a thread about spoilers? I figured anyone who doesn't wanna be spoiled won't read past the first post.

    There'll always be someone stupid enough to click on a spoiler tagged thread, read an un-blacked out spoiler post, and bitch about it for four pages.

    You figured wrong. Just cause the op says the thread contains spoilers doesn't mean anyone who hasn't been spoiled will stay away. People get curious. That why it's essential that you black out anything with spoiler-worthy info, whether it's in a labeled thread or not.
