    So, I don't think this discussion is REALLY necessary, but you know what they say: DESPERATE TIMES, desperate measures.

    Since the movies kill off once [or more] characters by movie, I wonder who should be the next one to meet the sharp end of the Reaper's scythe and more importantly why.

    Maybe Optimus? So they can introduce Rodimus in his place, or maybe even make Bumblebee take his place.

    Or maybe BB, kill him off so they can introduce a new kiddie-appeal character for a new generation of fans.

    Dino, perhaps, given the tragic fate of his voice actor.

    Sideswipe perhaps, going down in a Last Stand against the villains, joining his old mentor in robot heaven.

    Or maybe Ratchet....

    Discuss.

    Kill Dino.

    He was supposed to have an epic death that Ferrari didn't like, a stealth force mode Ferrari didn't approve of, and a toy that Ferrari wouldn't let Hasbro get away with. Coupled with all this, and he had 2 lines, laughing isn't a line. There's just no point to him, and him returning would be even more of a hassle.

    So yeah, kill Ferrar- I mean, Dino.

    Sideswipe has yet to show us any of his fighting skills, his only win against a fleeing Con. He bosses people around a lot (Ironhide too in ROTF IIRC), but we don't see him do more than anyone else either. Plus, he was fine with surrendering to Soundwave.

    Dino does nothing, cheated death (Que was forced to be his stunt double), and loses an arm in the final fight when everyone else was fine, so he's a weak link.

    Ratchet is a fantastic fighter and a great off-screen medic.

    They won't kill Optimus.

    The Wreckers are a unit. If one dies, I think they should all die.

    But I think Bee needs to go the most because Sam isn't present and that's srs bznz. Plus, his plot powers ruin everything about him. The kids will get over it.

    With his namesake and VA deceased, killing Dino would be in bad taste (granted Dino never would've had much impact upon death anyways). I imagine Dino will just quietly disappear before TF4.

    Sideswipe and Ratchet have some reputation, at least as much as Ironhide did, being in multiple films and having a handful of moments, so them kicking the bucket would have actual impact.

    The Wreckers are an odd case. Killing just one or two should affect the survivor(s), but they're such non-entities I don't see that happening.

    Optimus has already died. Another death would just be redundant.

    Then there's Bumblebee...

    I wanna see the wreckers go down. Sure their alt modes were killer but their robot modes? I mean seriously that was kind of pointless. Just someone that could kick their ass and just brutally kill them. I wanted shockwave to do that.

    I think Ratchet should die in the final battle of the movie when he tries to save a wounded Autobot.

    Ratchet. It'd triple his chances of having a leader/pseudo-HA toy made.

    Bumblebee.

    Have Straxus come from behind, drive his pickaxe in the back of Bee's head, going completely through, then have him slowly tear it off.

    Yep, I need my special pills now...

    You know, "fixing" posts makes you come across as an asshole.

    I understand you were correcting some wrong information, but try not to come across as such a "super all-knowing tf megafan".

    :lol  I hate the "fixed" posts. I don't need anyone's help.

    On topic: I voted Sideswipe and I don't really have a justification why. I would just like to see him go down with swords swinging like a mad man.

    Sideswipe, but he isn't deserving of a leader class toy.

    Assuming that the following characters do return in the fourth movie, and seeing as how 'Bee will never die (but seriously, what an awesome and ballsy move on their parts if they did! :ev:  ), my vote is for Ratchet, as he is the next "big 'bot" in line to go. Then Sideswipe. And then the Wreckers.

    So...their robot modes were pointless? Not sure I get that, but okay.

    Not their robot mode in general. I probably should've been more clear. Their robot mode designs were terrible.

    I swear they better not kill Ratchet. Everyone on this thread trust me, its the ones that seem week who make big surprises sometimes!! Ratchet will have that time one day. They need to kill that useless Dino/Mirage. He was close to useless. If Ferrari's gonna be that much of a little "beyatch" then they need to just kill him.

    My 'immediate thought' prediction, if it's a direct continuation of DOTM:

    Dino does a disappearing act like Jolt. Ratchet or Sideswipe dies.
