    I have seen little to none posts about brawl so I wanted to here some opinions on him. I only assume that he probably will not appear much in the movie, but just as much as Id like him to I want to discuss his role in this movie.

    We havent seen much about him, or for that matter BoneCrusher so would it be easier to say that within the months left of the movie that the reason why concepts/ images of them havent surfaced is because their roles in the movie are less fortoled lthan SS, Megs,Prime BB, and others ?

    since he has no lines in the movie, he's more like a drone than an actual character

    no, that isnt what he meant, in any film you have loads of people that have non-speaking parts, they are still people though.

    im betting that the TFs will be expanded a bit to at least have a line or two each but anyway.. he is in the film,
    and hes monster of a badass who only goes down thanks to a lucky shot

    Thats not what I implied, I was basing that if a drone, he probably wont have a personaltie, because drones do the bidding for others without regards. And I still dont grasp why they havent given much about him, thats why I said is he not important, or is it we cant get their concepts etc.....

    I've read the script, and what everyone else in this thread is correct. He's not written as a drone, but he doesn't speak, either. The best examples I can think of are Darth Maul in Star Wars and the Russian in The Punisher. They both have personalities, they both have brief roles, and they don't speak all that much. But they're not brainless drones.

    He got loads of personality, we just prolly won't see it in the film. But the Titanium figure had an awesome bio for Brawl.

    And the part where it says he thinks explosions rule, yeah that part rules.

    It was stated in one of the Orci interviews that just cause the script has a certain amount of dialog in there doesnt mean that is all the dialog you ll get or lines for that matter. Some stuff is still improved and as the movie progresses they flesh out the scenes so Brawl may or may not have speaking line for the movie but I would probably bet he ll have some catch phrase or something to say that will make him seem menacing.

    Also of note, the majority of the 'bot-to-bot' script was writen after the movie stopped filmming the live action scenes. In other words, the robot's personalities were all but left out of the old script intentionally.

    I hope Brawl gets a fair amount of screen time, he’s probable my favorite alt-mode of the movie.

    I'm really starting to suspect that we might be in for a pleasant surprise with Brawl. He MIGHT just be one big coverup for Earth mode Megatron.

    From what I've seen so far, Brawl is visually the most appealing 'Con to me, with Barricade a VERY close second.

    And no matter what happens in the movie, if he kicks ass, we could see him in sequels. Hell, Boba Fett survived that giant mouth thing, and robots are even easier to bring back:

    "I thought he was dead?" "He was, but we repaired him."

    That's true--it was really just meant as a similar example: character whose popularity resulted in his death being 'undone.' And his character (as both him and his father, since they're kinda interchangeable) was brought back in a big way for the prequels, despite him being sort of a throwaway villian in two previous films. So Lucas was at least concious of the fan love--I'd even be willing to bet he'd show up in 7-9 if they ever got made.
