    So i was watching some old animated episodes and i thought of how cool and fun it would be to see blitzwing (with all 3 personalities) on the big screen.
    Imagine scenes of him pissing of starscream :D 
    he could also provide a lot of cool action scenes

    If a different director and writers were at the helm, perhaps.

    They wouldn't have any scenes like that together. The Decepticons are treated rather seriously in Bayformers as legitimate threats. Also, they wouldn't be able to pull off a triple changer like Blitzwing. They tried it with Mixmaster and he just ended up looking like he had tripped in mid-transformation.

    So he can show up and just get killed in 5 minutes of being introduced. Sorry thanks but no thanks I rather they use random decepticons and do they norm thing with them and wait for the reboot or TF4 done by someone who actually knows what characterzation is.

    Seriously? This is a joke right? There about as threating as a giant walking toaster since the autobots always toast them(see what I did there) but seriously someone with decent directing skills can use blitzwing not bay and not his writing crew.

    Then what about the kitchen bots. Walking around farting flares/flames doesn't seem like a threat to me.

    They have a military task force devoted to hunting them down and none of them are treated as comedic sidekicks.

    Appliancebots don't belong to either faction.

    This is a really a good point. The Cons have been made into bad guys with minimal personality designed to keep the audience from becoming attached to them and allow the general audience to root for the good guys to rip their faces off. If the bad guys were likable, then we'd feel different about them being killed.

    Of course, this is an extreme. There is a loss of personality and character this way, but it does allow them to be viewed as threats. It is a hard balance to acheive and what typically happens is the badguys are either anonymus monsters or completely unthreatening charicatures.

    Or maybe the creative team aren't courageous/creative enough to give their villains some depth and make their fictional universe realistically 'gray'.

    That could be said with every Transformers series ever.

    Maybe. Or maybe they only have 2 hours to tell a story and don't have time to stop for every single bad guy and give them long back stories and elaborate characterizations.

    Blitzwing should be an Autobot obsessed with American football.

    I'm gonna say the same thing I said in the Lugunt thread, NO. Blitzwing will at the very best get one line about piss or something, and just be killed by Autobots instantly. Less then a minute of screentime.

    Compared to the hilarious and badass Blitzwing was in Animated, a show with HEART, I don't want Blitzwing unless he's done right. Maybe in TF: Prime. But I'm spoiled from Animated's treatment of their characters. So, no to both Blitzwing and Lugnut in the films.

    Now if they were unlockables or DLC for the DOTM game... we'll have something to talk about.

    I've seen more than a few films that managed to give its villains ample backstory and characterization in that amount of time. There's no reason why a Transformers movie can't do the same.

    There´s nothing admirable or gray about a side that wants to exterminate or conquer Earth. That´s what Deceptticons do.

    This is almost like with Star Wars fans who sympatize with the Empire. The same Empire that blows up planets to prove a point. I have to wonder about the moral compass of some of you guys.
