Why didn't the Dreads just leave with their dignity?

    Title says it all. They dropped their weapons afterall. . . Might aswell have left. Or, if they were going to retaliate in the first place, why didn't they just shoot instead of throwing spear bombs at Ironhide?

    Their Decepticons!

    They don't make deals with Autobots.

    Because heaven forbid that a Con be allowed to escape unharmed in the Movie-verse.

    Indeed. I would've liked to see the Dreads be the ones to kill Ironhide. Let the 'Cons shine for once, even if just for a small moment.

    Because Megatron would beat the shit out of them if they failed their mission

    1. Their mission was to retrieve Sentinel. If they had left with their dignity Megs would have probably scraped them for not completing their mission or something. I mean, they don't look like the brightest bunch. Mission or not they probably just wanted to kill them.

    2. Because if they had attempted to shoot them Ironhide/SS would've fired too? I dunno.

    And this. :lol

    I don't know if you've noticed, but Decepticons are assholes. Besides, they had an advantage. They ALL dropped their guns, but the Dreads had backups. No self-respecting punkass Decepticon wouldn't give it a shot.

    IDK, Megs probably wouldn't care. SP would have betrayed them anyway

    Notice how all four of the robots in that scene drop their weapons. The Dreads were playing along so they could [almost literally] pull some different weapons out of their asses and attack Sideswipe and Ironhide while they were unarmed.

    Little did they know that Sideswipe and Ironhide were a bit crafty and make a damn good team.

    Remember Wheelie said if he fails they were gonna kill him. If they just plain give up from the Decepticon point of view they don't deserve dignity and would summarily be killed.

    Wheelie was an incredibly expendable Drone though.

    For the Decepticons, EVERYONE is expendable though.

    Imagine the rep they would get if they actually killed mutha fugging Ironhide. I'd jump at that if I had the chance.

    What he said. Now that I look at it, the dreads didn't even need to chase SP, because he was just gonna take the pillars and scramoo anyway.

    I kinda find "dropping weapons" directive is lame. We all know most transformers have weapons that came out of "nowhere". They (enemies) just cant be expected to hold the sole offensive weaponry using their hands.

    The bots should've seen it coming that the dreads can produce extra weaponry from any part of their body, even the ass.

    If you disobey Megatron, he'll kill you, if you attack Ironhide, he'll kill you too.

    So they said "You know what? Fuck this shit, WE'LL GO DOWN WITH ONEHELLUVA FIGHT, BITCH!" *throws spikes*
