    I walked in expected to hate laserbeak, and walked out thinking he was one of the best villains the movies produced.

    I think these two quotes from the novel pretty much confirm his awesomeness:

    1. "What up? You not up. You down. All the way down."*

    2. "Well, craaaaap."**

    * = Before getting thrown out of the window in the novel, Wang says "What up now, bro?" instead of "Aaaaw, shit."

    ** = After Sam locks Laserbeak in a computer room.

    I didn't walk in expecting to hate him, but I did walk in expecting to have an almost completely mute character akin to Frenzy (Yeah, I know, he jibber-jabbers and says "Aw, s**t.") and Ravage, save for growling and such. And then he totally straight-up killed that guy and in his slimy voice he uttered "Pleasure working with you." :D  Both my friend and I simultaneously went "Whoa." I was happy, but then thoughts of RotF came flooding back. So the Negatron in me expected that to be his only line of dialogue. And then of course the character only continued to be awesome. He basically had equal dialogue/screentime/presence as Soundwave! :D

The scene where he takes on bumble bee in the city was bad azz tic. the cannon he had was going crazy , man he was shooting in every direction trying to kill everyone.. Like I'm a bad MOFO come get some. I would have loved to see him blow off Bee's head .......

    Yeah, Laserbeak was really cool wasn't he. He didn't feel like a minion either but an actual team player. Heck he was one of the most useful 'Cons and got a lot of screentime to boot.

    Laserbeak was the best Decepticon in the whole movie. Had the best lines too.

    I used to do the same thing but I have come to the conclusion that Shockwave was so bad azztic that he could not be allowed to have anymore screen time. If he was allowed more screen time the movie would have went like this:

    at chernoble Prime ends up dead.

    Shockwave would have finished everyone else off

    and earth would have been cybertron

    The only thing that pisses me off with his new-found popularity is that his toy is hard to find now. Didn't this happen to a character from ROTF? A mediocre toy, but as soon as people see the movie, the toy is hard to find.

    sideways was the toy it was common as hell no one wanted it cause of his flat red tummy then once the movie came BOOM he was hard to find

    also preview wave soundwave became hard to get once the movie started though i am surpised that they didnt release him agian in a later wave instead of 3 packs and 2 packs

    While I loved the character, I think it would've been more appropriate if he was named "Buzzsaw".

    I agree with this.... I thought his name was perfect!

    The only thing I think sucked was Sam took him down way to easy!

    He was like a bad dude through the whole movie and then all of a sudden he is able to be restrained by human long enough to have his head held over the barrel and be blasted? :/ please.

    I'm more so for Buzzsaw with the whole "art of killing" vibe he was givin' off (or at least, that's what I picked up). While I know this isn't G1, I've seemed to always see Laserbeak as the covert recon/intel bird, while Buzzsaw as the assassin/liason.
