    According to hasbro and bay, they'd be slitting their throats.

    1. i'd laugh my fucking ass off for at least two hours after the movie ended.

    2. it would probably effect them quite noticeably

    Depends on the kid.

    However, you're presuming Hasbro will allow the poster boy to get his pretty Energon brains splattered all over the camera lens...not gonna happen.

    One thing; the movies are rated PG -13 for a reason; kids not mature enough to handle it shouldn't see it. :wink:  So really, it shouldn't affect kids at all! :wink:

    unfortunately the kids' mindsets are: oh mommy look! bumblebee has "different" toy for the new movie! i want it! and not: aw man bay killed bumblebee! how could they do that?

    this is because most of them don't give half of a rat's baked ass about the movie. that and Hasbro would still make shelfwarmers even if he died like they did sentinel, ironhide, jazz, WJ, etc. but i see your point

    HA! :lol

    Suddenly all bumble bees get killed, and brought back in a souped up form as goldbug (or bumblebee prime), while Que becomes hated for causing bumblebee's death and soundwave becomes the rival for bumblebee.

    I dont want Bumblebee to die....Just...to get his Arse handed to him. So if Soundwave could just blow his kneecaps off and leave him for dead, that would be spiffy.

    If it's anything like when Optimus died in '86, they'd be locking themselves in their rooms and crying inconsolably (supposedly).

    I dunno, I think that if a kid is young enough that watching Bumblebee meet a graphic demise would cause genuine psychological trauma, they probably shouldn't have been taken to a movie where multiple people get popped like blood-balloons, where Prime shoots his mentor and decapitates his rival, where Shockwave's head is turned inside out, etc. etc.


    Yeah, like that'd stop him. Bee lost both legs in the first film and STILL was doing his part.

    Dont want him stopped, just want him instilled with a sense of vulnerability again. I do like the movies but i do admit to being troubled by how badass Bumblebee was. Even repeatedly telling myself that its a different character, a different bumblebee, didn't help much.

    I would stand up, cheer, and applaud in the theater. Forget the kids.

    I know what you mean and I agree, if it meant we got to see some more of the Bumblebee from the first film who had actual HEART instead of ninja moves. Bumblebee in the TF1 was probably the first incarnation of the character I actually liked, because it was the first version to get across that core concept his best versions have always been built around: a tiny bot with massive courage.

    I'm sure there'd be many an upset kids, but I think the world would keep turning.

    But as Fatal said, that's all assuming that Hasbro would kill the current face of Transformers for them. I like 'Bee and all, and I don't want him to die (although, it could prove to be an awesome story point, or at a minimum, a cool visual effects sequence), but I'd like him knocked down a peg or two. Get into a fight with two 'Cons and have the s**t beaten out of him. Show that he doesn't always win. Have Ratchet come in rescue him (or at least drag him away from the fight) and to me, that'd make the kids love Bumblebee even more; the fact that he survived being beat up by the 'Cons because he's so tough and strong and courageous and blah blah blah.

    Bumblebee -> NEW TOYS REGARDLESS.

    Your move. :p
