This might count as a SPOILER It just popped in my head last night. Scorponok was just a useless character. Why was a decent chunk of the movie focused on Scorponok, when the scene could have worked just as well if Bonecrusher was in it instead? I look at it this way; Scorponok is a drone, right? Not only that, but Scorponok doesn't even transform, (I know the toy does, but I'm not talking about that). I mean even Frenzy transforms, and he's just a microscopic spaz! So why focus on nothing more then a attack dog when their were perfectly good Decepticons to fill in for that scene, instead of having them almost wasted, (like Bonecrusher going down in 30 seconds). I know the scene is needed because it tells the humans that they can be hurt. Ok, fine. How about this. Bonecrusher goes after the humans, and they start fighting. When the planes come in, and bomb the hell out of him, he's damaged and the retreats. Maybe he even shoots down the planes so he's not followed. Their we have it. And then later in the movie when he fights Prime, he has a good excuse why he sucked, because he's still damaged, and he's not much of a challenge for Prime at that moment. Now how he gets from Qatar to California, I don't know. Leave that one to the writers.
