    Anyone else wonder why Blackout didn't kill Epps in Quatar??

    Maybe because he'd never seen a black guy before?

    well, I think his main Mission was to get the information from the Computers, not to massacre everyone, but he did send scorponock to kill them, afterall

    I don't stomp every ant I see either, especially when I'm in the middle of a mission. And my boss isn't NEARLY as demanding :lol

    He was probably thinking on that "simplistic warmachine" way:

    *Blackout sees Epps*

    *ominous voice* *Weapons: Not found. Threat: Minimal. Obliteration: Cancelled."

    *Dude fires a rocket at him* "Me: Fucking pissed. You: Doomed" *unleashes Scorponok*

    In othe words, he saw no threat in Epps so he felt was uneeded to kill him, but when they fired a rocket at him, REALEASED THE KRAKEN.

    but wait, i heard blackout charge his cannon right after a rocket hit him, then it failed i guess? because he aimed right at Epps going for cover.

    He was going to. But he took too long due to MOVIE MAGICAL MOMENT®.
    Got shot by rocket guy, was distracted and figured he'd just let Scorponok deal with it.

    Who, on his turn, for no good reason at all,took a damn long time just stalking them. :p

    I think Blackout meant to say "GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY SIGHT".

    Well you see it would have been the fastest black-dude death in movie history, and people would find it to be racist. Like they did with Jazz, but probably a lot worse.

    Alternatively before embarking on this mission Starscream gave Blackout a copy of the script to read and so he knew not to kill plot centric characters

    Didn't it have something to do with the camera Epps had? It flashed or something didn't it and distracted Blackout?
