    Everyone complains about how the Cons were too weak right? I have this problem too. They died so easily in DOTM. In my opinion, Brawl is how the Cons should of been.

    Extremely hard to kill, Ironhide, Ratchet and Jazz together couldn't kill Brawl. He got his arm cut off. Shot by lots of rockets and when you thought he died, he got back up. Not that he is my favourite but the way he was so tough is how the Cons in DOTM and ROTF should of been.

    To be fair, Shockwave took quite a bit, he just seemed to go down quickly because the pacing was so fast.

    That was the downside. Shockwave was tired that day.

    Well, Blackout took a grenade to the balls. Don't know who'd want to keep on living after that.

    But yeah, Brawl was pretty bad ass. I think Shockwave took a lot damage too. It took everyone to get him down. Optimus really just delivered the final blow. He probably would've faired a little better if it wasn't for his eye.

    The whole human anatomy weakpoints = TF weakpoints concept was
    implemented a tad bit too much.

    True.

    But I have to agree with the OP Brawl and all the other Decepticons should have been so hard to kill that it just seemed impossible to kill one. I mean how can bullets from human guns get passed Decepticon metal?

    Megatron took quite a deal of punishment in ROTF.

    He got the shit beat out of him in the forest battle, albeit "killing" Optimus in the end, he took some heavy tank fire to the chest in Egypt, and had a huge chunk of his head blown off.

    Not to mention taking on Jazz and Prime and winning in the first film, only to fall when he is bombarded by an airstrike and kicked by Optimus at the same time.

    I'd imagine they were modified to behave similarly to sabot rounds. Plus, they typically aimed for weak spots in the armor.

    "Should HAVE been."

    Not "of." Or, if you want it to sound the same "apostrophe VE." "Should've." :banghead:

    I'm sorry, but this is required:

    I used to be alive like you. But then I took a grenade to the balls.

    The fights are not consistent. Brawl and Scorponok were tough to beat. (I think Scorponok survived the first movie, didn't he?) Others got their butt handed to them pretty easy (Jazz, Sideways, Demolishor and perhaps Ironhide, Barricade, Lazerbeak, and Soundwave). The fight between Rampage and Bumblebee was balanced--quite a rarity.
