    I think if Brawl survived he should of been awarded the Decepticon medal of honor. The damage he took, him not abandoning his post, and finally fighting till his last breath. He took the most hits out of any Decepticon and was did not flee like most Decepticons.

    Agreed. He threw Jazz into a building and held down Lennox's squad for a good while, after having his cannons kicked off and getting his ass kicked by Ratchet. He was tough and gave Bumblebee a good fight.

    Brawl was one of the better Decepticons and he wasn't even named properly in the movie :p  I should try to get ahold of that Leader figure.

    The Decepticons don't give out awards for failure, even if you try your best.

    Well, the toys say Brawl survived and he appeared, in the toy colours, in DOTM. Maybe he did get the Decepticon version of a medal.

    I have to disagree. I'd have to say Megatron from TF1. I mean fighting optimus, getting carpet bombed, and shot at, I mean he did not go down until he took the allspark to the chest. If you think about it, Megatron probably deserved it more. When he's getting dumped into the ocean, he's missing a leg, arm, and a lot of chunks of robotic parts missing.

    But Megatron is the one who would hand them out. The Fallen is more of Megatrons mentor than leader. So I have no clue who'd give Megatron a medal. Unless he's so self obsessed he gives medals to himself.

    Brawl was by far the best of the movie Decepticons, and the Leader-class toy is my favorite action figure ever. It is definitely the very best tank/robot toy that has ever been produced for the line.

    I find it funny how Shockwave as even a larger threat than Brawl, but people still see him as a weakling [Brawl, for the more awesome he was, never made the Autobots retreat single-handedly, Shockwave did].

    this is true, although the sitatuons were quite different..Brawl was fighting 3 autobots anda group of humans, while Shockwave and his worm were attacking autobots who also had a whole city of 'cons to deal with. Autobots retreating seems more--necessary in one instance than the other

    True. I think the real issue here is this: Brawl gave us one hell of an action scene. Shockwave didn't.

    But in reality, Shockwave's death was actually pretty damn realistic. Nobody could fight him head on, so they swarmed him. Humans fired on him and blinded him, he was attacked by the Wreckers, and then Optimus Prime swooped in and hit him with everything he had.

    Shockwave DOES deserve a medal. He incapacitated Optimus for half the battle, allowing them to round up the Autobots and execute Que, and he allowed the humans to take the artifact that set the movie events into play.

    LOL JETSTORM

    But back on topic, Brawl was indeed a resilient warrior, too bad he had to die.

    It's not the winning that's important, it's the taking part.

    Of course it does help if you're still alive at the end to collect your medal and enjoy the accolade.

    My sister once asked me what music I'd want played at my funeral and I told her I wouldn't give a shit because I'd be dead. She could rattle a load of pots and pans for all the difference it would make to my crated corpse.
    Although I admire her optimism for assuming I'll die before she does. :p

    Brawl was my favorite of the movie decepticons, out of all the ones from the film, he put up way more of a fight than the others
