    Well, I saw the list of Transformers' mottoes in imdb.com forum before and now I am looking for a copy of it but I couldn't find it anymore, may be it has been deleted/moved. Is there anyone who can help me :confused: , I can only remember a few:
    OP: Freedom is the right of all sentient beings
    Megatron: Peace through tyranny
    Jazz: Do it with style or don't bother doing it

    I only need those of the TF appear in the 2007 movie.
    Thanks a lot!

    You can look up the rest of the Decepticons yourself at www.tfu.info.

    The great thing with the old mottos, they occasionally got changed depending on the toy's release. Check out the listing for Megatron, there's almost as many there as there are different series (I've marked up the ones that get used a lot as "Normal", and I've also given my preferences from each list for what fits the Movie guys):

    Optimus:
    Normal "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings."
    Beast Machines Blast Punch Primal "The true key to victory lies in the strength of the mind, not the fist."
    RiD Air attack Primal "We will win if we believe in ourselves and our unity."
    G2 "Fight for the good of all."
    G2 (Marvel UK) "Even one Decepticon is one too many!"
    RiD "We will put out the fires of evil!"
    Energon "Those who threaten peace will fall in pieces."

    Since Optimus says Freedom in the Movie, it is logical to give him that as his motto.

    Ratchet:
    Normal "You break it, I'll remake it."
    Universe "All life is precious."

    I like the Universe quote. While the typical one fits the rough-and-ready Ratchet of the profiles, I feel the Universe quote is also a very good, and very Autobot, statement.

    Bumblebee:
    Normal "The least likely can be the most dangerous."
    Goldbug "To know others you must know yourself first"

    Not much to choose from here.

    Ironhide:
    Normal "High tech circuitry is no replacement for guts."
    Slogan from G1 Tech Spec "Go chew on a microchip!"
    G2 Go Bot "Being fast is an asset, but nothing replaces guts!"
    RiD "Let's move out!"
    Energon "If trouble doesn't find me, I'll find it!"
    Energon Supermode "A great mentor is the key to success."

    The normal quote fits the Movie guy nicely. He's all about guts, and firepower, but you get the impression that disarmed he'd just carry on fighting anyway.

    Jazz:
    Normal "Do it with style or don't bother doing it."
    Action Master "Do it with style or don't do it at all!"

    Not much to choose from, just a slight rewording.

    Megatron:
    Normal "Peace through tyranny."
    Marvel Comics "Everything is fodder."
    Action Master "Conquest of the universe rests upon the immediate termination of all Autobots!"
    Machine Wars "Prepare for oblivion!"
    RiD "The Earth is mine!"
    Beast Wars Transmetal II "What does not destroy me makes me strong. What attempts to destroy me shall be obliterated."
    Armada "My power is your doom!"
    Energon "Join me and I will send you to battle. Defy me, and I will send you to Oblivion."
    RiD Megabolt "Each fight only strengthens me for the next battle!"

    The BW Transmetal II is a nice quote that fits any Megatron, though Tyranny is a good match too. For the Movie Megatron, though, the BW Transmetal II might end up being the more appropriate if he really does come back for the second one...

    Starscream:
    Normal "Conquest is made of the ashes of one's enemies."
    Armada "My destiny is leadership."
    Energon "It is my destiny to lead."

    I've always been partial to the G1, the Armada and Energon ones seem a little devoid of personality.

    Barricade:
    G1 Micromaster, Individual "Winning IS everything!"
    G1 Micromaster, Team "There are two kinds of fighters, Decepticons and losers."
    Movie "To Punish and Enslave"

    The Movie quote, written on the car, screams "bad cop" which sums Barricade up perfectly.

    Blackout: "Persistence is the cornerstone of victory."

    Frenzy: "Sow panic and surrender will bloom."

    Brawl:
    Normal "I was built to be wild."
    Devastator "Thinking and winning do not mix."

    I think Devastator's is the better fit, given how Brawl was one huge unstoppable monster Decepticon in the film who basically fought as his second instinct.

    Scorponok:
    G1 "Kindness is no virtue... and cruelty is no vice."
    Energon "If I do not crush you with my claws, I will finish you with my sting!".

    Either of these fit the little critter. Energon's might well be a more appropriate match, though they are both good.

    Goooood point. I overlooked the Classics who got new mottos:

    Optimus: "No sacrifice is too great in the service of freedom."

    (sounds eerily like Optimus' self-sacrifice speech when he talked about absorbing the Allspark into himself)

    Bumblebee: "Data is power."

    (fits the Movie well, at least if you read the prequel comic where Bumblebee is all about finding and analyzing data in his search for the Witwickys)

    Megatron: "Lesser creatures are the playthings of my will."

    (Yep, that's a Megatron with a total disdain for lesser beings.)

    Starscream: "My enemies will be left nothing but the ashes of their defeat."

    (Nice variation on the G1 motto)

    Bearing in mind Hasbro said that Classics was intended to build hype for the Movie and build familiarity with the characters, these bios could well have been written with the Movie guys in mind as much as the actual Classics. Optimus and Bumblebee are both extremely good fits.
