why didnt the autobots fight back if they knew they were gonna be killed anyways?

    in the "No Prisoners, Only Trophies" Scene!

    Bumblebee knew he was gonna die, so why didnt he just take his chances and punch Soundwave? I KNOW that they got saved by Wheelie and Brains but if that never happened, would they have just all been killed?

    Probably because none of them wanted to get the others killed.

    yeah, maybe that... indeed when I saw the scene (before Dylan's line) I tought... "damn, they're not fighting... well, if they do that, they would be all killed right there" and them "No prisoners, only trophies" ._.

    Maybe they were feeling a bit pessimistic at that point and determined that it would be utterly pointless.

    I figured that it would just set off a chain reaction and that rest of the Autobots would be killed then and there.

    I think the bigger question is why the Cons decided to take prisoners at all, instead of killing them outright.

    Are you seriously asking that question considering Soundwave's character?

    For sick lols, that's why.

    I found that a bit stupid too. Either way, someone would end up dying, so you might as well try and fight them off. The editing leading up to it also kind of sucked because it didn't even show how they got captured at all, from what I can remember.

    Yeah, that whole scene just played out really weirdly.

    We definitely needed a capture scene. And for Soundwave to play with Wheeljack's bodiless head.

    they had like 8 Cons to 4 Autobots and I think they were waiting for reinforcements like Prime and the Wreckers....I believe the novel has that....except Mirage/dino dies instead of Que/Wheeljack.....but yes they shoulda fought but they woulda died....and I can buy what happened....

    Something that needed to be there but got cut or was never filmed for whatever reasons (cost, time, pacing, or never in the script to begin with.)

    More so if you read the novel.
