    I've seen it mentioned a few times that that was laserbeak who stole the shard in the government facility.

    I thought it was a cool touch they had a 'flat' Transformer like that because it was like the cassettes Soundwave would shoot out. But I never thought of it was Laserbeak.

    Is that official?

    I thought it was just some random bot and not Laserbeak but it would make sense seeing Ravage was there too. Pretty funky design if that was Beaky, then again Frenzy was weird too.

    The official name is Reedman, but everyone is taking it as Laserbeak.

    No...Last I heard the "flat-bot" was called Reedman or something to that extent. But not Laserbeak.

    I don't recall. How large roughly were the spheres that Ravage coughed up?

    The size of marbles at the most.

    There's no way that's Laserbeak. Way too reptilian-looking.

    Nope. Like everyone said, "Flat" Transformers name was REEDMAN.

    You know that is what I thought. It struck me as odd that the "mass shifted" down small enough to for individual "atoms" of this new robot :p 

    I kind of got a Laserbeak vibe off him too tho. I also have to admit, not liking the movie as a whole, I giggled with sick glee when he jumped right through that guy :D

    No, it wasn't Laserbeak. Reedman is his name.

    Agreed. There was a Wal-mart listing for a Deluxe class "red bulldozer", so here is hoping.

    Yeah, but they were alive, so it was like throwing up a swarm of robotic scabies or something. Eww...

    Oh Reedman? I saw that name somewhere else also and had no idea. No toy for this guy I guess?

    I have to say my eyes widened when he jumped right through that guy and killed him also. That was awesome.
