    I think if they killed off one of the Bots who survived the first movie, it could (key word: COULD) add something to the story.
    So who should it be, and why?
    BTW, I'm not adding Optimus to the poll since he died and came back in ROTF.

    If I had to pick one I would say Ironhide. Bumblebee will NEVER die unless they plan guldbug whihc they won't do. Ironhide died in the new comic and he's the 3rd used Autobot. Ratchet is underused.

    I agree. BB is the movie line's "poster boy" and Hasbro won't risk upsetting the kids, and Ratchet is very underused.

    If Ironhide died, it would be much more of an emotional blow to the audience, because we know him as a character better.

    Bumblebee is the Transformers poster boy (as said above), and I do believe Ratchet is too underused. His death wouldn't have nearly as big an effect as Ironhide's death would.

    I don't WANT any of them to die though.

    You should have added more choices to the poll,Sideswipe and the remaining Autobots from the Second film might be major characters so they could have a dramatic death scene.

    I think that Ironhide may get the chop. Hasn't his alt mode been discontinued by GM, as well...?

    Do any of them have to die, really?

    I would say Ironhide, since besides Optimus and Bumblebee, he's the one other Autobot that has had some decent characterization.

    I'd rather see Sideswipe, Jolt or (especially) Twins dead.

    And from TF1 survivors - Ratchet may be killed cause he's not important anyway, but I think that Ironhide's death would be more meaningful. Of course killing off bumblebee would be a nice surprise but let's face it - not gonna happen...

    I'm halfway to saying I hate you...Lol. Sideswipe and Jolt are epic. And Ratchet's character isn't developed enough for his death to cause an impact.

    Now if I HAD to choose one I'd say Ironhide. His death would cause a shock and sadness impact to occur. Since not including optimus and bumblebee. Ironhide's character is pretty well delved into. This would also give ratchet more elbo room. Seeing as after Ironhide he'd be a good second in command.

    If they were going to kill one of them, I'd say Ironhide would be the best bet. His death could affect Prime in a negative way and allow us to see a darker side to the Autobot leader then we have thus far.

    And I thought we have just seen his darker side in ROTF (face-ripping, shooting defeated enemies in the head etc.)
