Transformers die all the time in fiction. But people don't tend to like it when their favorite character is killed off (but they seem to have no problems if the character survives but never appears again not even as a cameo). (I don't know who produced this) Now, I personally dislike using fiction characters in stories. I'd rather every Transformers character have a toy whatever happens to them since there's enough toys about now and you're not going to give meaningful characterisation to every character with a toy. There will always be some toy left out. If I were to write fiction, I'd use as many toys as I could in my stories. Smelting Pool victims - they would be www.tfu.info Faction Index - 1-2-3 Transformers. But in stories set before a unimportant characters death, I would like to use them in backgrounds at least showing that they are alive.
