    When Cade showed Prime Ratchets severed head, he lost it and started breaking shit.

    I get how he's upset over a lost friend, but I remember Cade previously showing Prime a video clip of Ratchet getting shot up, so why was Prime all of a sudden getting mad when when he already saw what became of Ratchet?

    I think it was the realization that they were killing them for profit (melting their bodies down).

    It's one thing to kill out of fear, it's even worse to kill allies out of greed.

    Could be mistaken but thats what I got from it.

    It's because when he saw the footage of Ratchet's head he saw that not only were the humans dismantling and melting him down for their own use but they were also happily disrespecting him because they were told he was just a Deception. I was really disgusted at that part and I was with Prime, destroy the lab, but I wish they would have retrieved his remains so they could properly but him to rest.

    Seriously?

    Think about it: imagine a friend of yours getting killed. Wouldn't you be put over the edge to see your friend's severed head being hacked up?

    They're quite obviously killing his friends (family according to him) to tear apart piece by piece, study, melt down, mutilate, and ultimately turn against him when he ends up fighting the human made transformers.

    Humans seek out and kill sharks, alligators, and crocodiles all the time just because they attacked or killed a human. We show that much anger and disgust at a mere animal doing what it does naturally. Now throw in a backstabbing end to a life, followed by immoral scientific study for the pursuit of profit. Not to mention the transformers are an endangered species, as they surely feel.

    They we're desecrating his corpse. I'd be pissed if I saw my friend getting stripped down to be turned into some abomination.

    This is worse than loosing a bot in combat against the Cons, the people who Prime swore to protect are killing his friends and melting them down, something worse then what the Cons would even do, that's my take on it.

    Wouldn't you be mad if one of your oldest friends decapitated head was being melted down for personal gain? Even if they didnt know who he was, I personally would go ballistic

    It's pretty much a "WE PROTECTED YOU, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO US!"

    Scenario.

    Also it's his best friend besides Ironhide, getting his corpse perversely desecrated on. Ironhide died in battle, same as Jazz, but Ratchet was killed for nothing but being an Autobot.

    I just found it more amusing that Optimus gave no shits about his surroundings and just wrecked shit. Way to be a leader.

    Wouldn't you Bee angry or even furious when some one you devoted yourself to protect turn against you and slaughter your friends? And burn his skull? Optimus feel betrayed after how much effort he put into protecting humans, and look at what they did to ratchet, MELTING HIS HEAD

    To be fair it was kinda supposed to be a stealth mission and Optimus just loses his shit and transforms and starts smashing shit. Some might view that as kinda not smart nor leader like.

    Yeah, some of my friends asked why he was so emotional over Ratchet but not Jazz and Ironhide and I reasoned that the circumstances were probably different. The latter died in direct combat but Ratchet's death was akin to betrayal from those that they helped. Even worse - his body was used for raw materials.

    I think it's normal, given the circumstances. Not only was he killed by those whom were considered allies...

    It finally dawned on Prime that he would now have to listen to radio talk BB for the rest of his life.

    It wasn't just killing him, they pretty much rubbed salt in the wound. They dismembered his body and melted him like he was scrap metal.

    I seriously think this is a troll post. Like, to not understand why Prime was upset is just unthinkable.
