    After Starscream had his head blown up by Sam, and began falling to the ground, why did Starcream's body began falling apart?? If you look closely, first his arm comes dropping down, then one of his wing plates, and his left thruster. Why did his start crumbling? Didn't only his head get destroyed?

    Which brings me another question... why couldn't Starscream just hold still and pluck Sam's rope attached to his eye? (*facepalm*) He was tripping and tumbling all over the place! :banghead:

    When you're in severe pain, your emotional reaction is going to heavily outweigh a logical one really quickly and firmly.

    If anything I wonder why he didn't transform and fly away. He might have gotten lucky and the transformation cut the cable. Anyways, Starscream must have been in a lot of pain and he couldn't think straight or hold still long enough because of this pain.

    Think about it; if you had a grappeling hook shot into your eye would you be calm enough to just pull it out? You'de be running around screaming "MY EYE!!! MY EYE!!!" or something to that effect. And as others have said it may have blown up Starscream's head, but it could also have damaged his upper torso as well. Even after that he did flop ontop of a building after dying which most likley added to the damage.

    He did scream "MY ARM!" when Optimus cut it off. That expresses pain you know.

    The explosion could have loosen parts or destroyed connections that held the parts together.

    Except for how he cried out in pain when it was ripped off, and yelled "ow, ow, ow" when he was stabbed in the eye. He was freaking out when he got his eyes jabbed, if the explosion didn't kill him I swear he would've had a heart attack. He was hyperventalating.

    There's so many jokes you could make about Starscream "falling apart", but it seems like two main things: they wanted to make it damn clear he was dead, his head blew up, he fell to pieces, and Sam had the hilarious borderline fourth-wall breaking "well he's dead" line. And it seems lots of the Movie TFs fall apart once they died, I guess maybe holding all their parts together from transformation takes consious effort, like flexing, and without it everything goes limp and can fall off easily. This is also tied to "make it damn clear these fuckers are dead" syndrome.

    *Sigh* I guess I'm one of the only ones who actually didn't find Starscream's death funny in any way? I was seriously bawling in the theater, and that's something that I don't do out in public, especially when my family is right next to me. Even my mother was astonished at how affected I was by his death...... :cry

    have you ever see how little of a person wearing a bomb is left after it goes off?

    Seriously...there are little itty bitty parts of stuff everywhere...the screamer is lucky they did him in the way they did and Bay just did not vaporize his ass in a LARGE :bay

    For those wondering why he didn't just pluck out the thing or transform and fly away, it's cause he was panicking.

    It's the same situation as how some people who are on fire don't just stop drop and roll.
