    The fight build-up in the last ep reminded me of South Park, when Cartman was trying to weasel out of a fight with Wendy in very pussy-ish fashion. I get Scream groveling in front of Megatron, but wish he had more balls to stand up to Autobots.

    Yup, Starscream needs a bit of bravery stuffed into him. Now that he's a free agent I'm hoping he has the bravery to stand up to both Megatron and the autobots.

    it was a trick though, wasn't it. just so he could get the upper hand, still very cowardly but that's how he rolls.

    Its not the first time though that he's been begging for his life.

    His begging at the start of the battle may have been a trick. But afterwards, he was kind of whimpering when Arcee had him pinned down and was about to finish him off.

    I'm okay with one time, but that trick won't always work. And that's probably the last time it'll work with Arcee. So the only options would be, the autobots or decepticons falling for the same trick over and over again, which kind of takes away from their characters. Or Starscream gets shot in the head. And its kind of demeaning for his character to constantly beg for his life( actually begging). I'm hoping that won't be the case later on.

    I'm fine with him begging for mercy as long as its a ploy [like in "Partners"], other good trick would be him saying "I surrrender!" then catching the heroes off-guard.

    Starscream should become a Combat Pragmatist from now on: He wins by exploiting every single damn weaknesses of the heroes.

    Hell, Jack Sparrow is like that and he is awesome!

    I see this as becoming a very interesting subplot. Perhaps the
    Unicron
    plot point in season 2 might lead to Starscream
    going to him to gain power.

    Now that we're comparing south park to tfs,I just had an idea:
    Ratchet: Oh my God! They killed Bee!
    Bulkhead: You Bastards!

    Starscream is intimidated by certain individuals when he knows he can't win.

    All bee needs is an orange perka and a voice that can be muffled. Still wouldn't be as cool as Kenny though.

    Yeah, I know, there are times it's obvious what both are "saying" but not always...... unless the "cc" is on. :thumb

    do we really know what bee's really saying?
    Optimus: "Bumblebee, I want you to scout a mission to the harbinger, and see what the decepticons are doing with it, their could be further dangerous technology stored within it."

    Bumblebee: " Go fuck yourself you lazy prick, you've got legs, and wheels right?, so why the hell can't you just do it yourself, huh? huh?..... lazy dumbass...."

    The fight really does make you wonder how much of his grovelling was genuine. He totally fake-dropped the key. I think he only really became afraid when Arcee had her blade to his neck. Remember, Starscream is, was, and always will be the biggest pansy ever. This is what makes the character so fun to watch. He'll bawl like a baby if he thinks it'll save him, then start acting like he's a big tough guy.

    The fight showcased him perfectly, it showed his inginuity, his opportunist personality, his deceptive nature, his crippling cowardice, his brutal means of fighting and his physical shortcomings in battle.

    This is the Prime forum, just give the thread time.

    I think a lot of us will...


    Was it something like "I like chicks with big fat titties"?

    Also about the shipping, I can honestly say that their fight was pretty hot. I just wish it'd have gone a bit longer. Not too long though, but just long enough to make em both... interesting.
