    Which is worse Optimus Prime wearing Jetfire's corpse in Revenge of the Fallen or Silas wearing Breakdown's corpse in Prime "The Human Factor"? Vote in the poll and then post your reasons.

    I'm going with Optimus Prime wearing Jetfire's corpse. Silas is human so him wearing a robot corpse is really a lot less creepy than wearing a bear skin. Optimus being a robot wearing a robot is like a human wearing another human's skin and that's just wrong.

    Rotf = using a dead body
    Prime = powermaster

    Optimus wearing Jetfire's corpse was not unwanted cannibalism because that's what Jetfire wanted was to give Optimus the strength to take down The Fallen and his Sun Harvester.

    Now Silas wearing a Breakdown suit... Scary and disturbing.

    Someone actually voted neither one is at all creepy but didn't post their reasons. I would assume "because they're robots" but I'm curious if there's possibly a different reason why someone would choose that option. I'm also kinda scared of what that reason might be.

    Oh, it's pretty simple really. It's because when 2 robots make a superrobot, there's no skin, flesh or blood, when a man is stuck inside a machine, only his head is actually "exposed, and when 2 humans make a human with a human robe, it's just plain disgusting.

    Optimus and Jetfire was basically Jetfire giving Optimus his parts becfore he died, to give him an upgrade which made him more powerful, Breakdown and Silas was creepy to me all the rust on Breakdowns corpse, and all so definitely Silas.

    Breakdown/Silas was definitely creepier to me, mostly because it was essentially a cyborg. I mean, we really have no idea how much of Silas' original body remained in Breakdown, do we? Let your imagination run wild with how what remained of his body was integrated with the Cybertronian part of Breakdown....

    Optimus in ROTF - because he just discarded the pieces and let them slide off his body at the end. In my eyes, that was a pretty disrespectful ending to Jetfire's sacrifice

    Silas/Breakdown is. Transformers are capable of merging with one another. Jetfire donated his parts to Optimus to defeat The Fallen. Silas is human and crushed. Breakdown is a robot and dead. They desecrated Breakdown to frankenstein a human to further their own twisted visions. This is much, much worse to me.

    I guess both are creepy, but neither struck me as being "this is an unholy abomination" creepy. 'Course, robots don't really get that gore factor being mechanical and all.

    Jetfire is just organ donation, but with a race of mechanical beings who's organs include "death guns" and "jetpack."

    Silas... I suppose that should be "unholy abomination", but I dunno, it just doesn't phase me for some reason. Perhaps because we had months to dwell on the fact before the show finally got around to implementing it? Breakdown's death having little impact on anyone certainly doesn't help matters.

    Just a vast majority hated his death, but when he did die, if they were gonna kill someone off, breakdown would be up the top, because dreadwing only just arrived, so there wasnt much to choose from, people dont like the decision to kill Breakdown, who cares, sometimes your favourite character dies, and if and when they do you cant just bitch to the writers, saying why did yoU kill them, it could be anyones favourite character not just Breakdown

    I was referring to the on-show characters. It took several episodes for Knock Out to make any kind of comment on his partner's demise, and I don't think the Autobots were ever even aware it happened.

    Breakdown was a zombie with a torn up scarred guy inside.
    I didn't find Super Optimus creepy at all.

    Jetfire Prime is odd, no doubt, but those pieces were like snap on accessories. (lol)
    Silas/Cylas takes the cake, because not only is he on the verge of being a cadaver himself, but he's living on life support inside of a corpse. He's not only using it as a snap on accessory (lol...), he's actually fused and living OFF of the dead guy. One half dead guy and one dead guy make a new life form. Eww.

    Silas and Breakdown was morally worse. Jetfire wanted Optimus to use his parts.
