    I felt the pangs when he died. For the short time he was on screen, I liked him a lot. It's a little morbid that one of the few Autobots to die is the one with the most human-like face, and they had to have his head fall off. But I liked Bee's reaction, he seemed very sad. I heard a few gasps from around me too.

    It made it much worse when his name in the credits was listed as Wheeljack. Poo.

    i liked what B said using the radio "my oldest friend" as i think it may have been a nod to the first episode of G1

    That's exactly what I thought. His death seems more emotional when seen in this context. Even more so when Bee is being drag to his death and you can see him react and almost reach out to Wheeljack's corpse.

    I thought he was acting like a bit of a bitch, but at the same time, he's not a warrior, he's a scientist. Although we didn't see him do a DAMNED THING except.

    I couldn't stand his head design and was glad when he died. Soundwave was a badass.

    Don't forget his death was that one human's idea. So we should all blame him. I'm glad he died.

    Now where is Q's toy?

    I didn't scream his name out in the theatre, start sobbing and banging the floor when he died or anything. But I liked him, he seemed like a quaint old bot who had a genuinely warm personality wanting to help others.

    And his death was made all the more saddening because he was shown to be so vunerable like a fearful little old man (which he basically was).

    As I said in another thread:

    It's a shame that when he dies, you only feel sorry because of the way he dies. You don't get to know him at all. He introduces himself, then later gives some new weapons to the humans and the shazam, he dies. Really wish he got more screentime. Same goes for Dino. He has a cool action sequence, but he only speaks one line or so. I think I'm actually glad that they decided to not call them Mirage and Q. It wouldn't have done those characters any justice.

    Also, I didn't expect Leadfoot to have that kind of posture. Haha, basically he just looks like a fat dwarf or something. Nice.

    i loved him. i was glad wheeljack made it to the big screen. and glad he did wheeljack-ish things before he died. and also glad he died by cons we know and love rather than some random generic.

    And Sam actually calls him Wheeljack audibly.

    During the scene with Starscream, Sam turns to Lennox and says Wheeljack said these would go boom...

    Smacks of a last minute Bay change ala Devastator/ Brawl

    Que and Dino? God, I hope this is Bay's last TF film

    He actually had a huge impact on me and saw the autobots truly have fear. and I dont think he was a coward, just truly realized his end was coming. Really was kinda hoping dino would die instead of Que.

    to me this scene was like that part in pirates of the crribean3 where they hang the little boy, they just took it to far.

    any chance of him maybe being saved? in rising storm he and mirage were scrapped pretty bad there but were still able to be saved and rebuilt as q and dino

    Watched the movie last night. Loved it. The last 45 or so minutes was a brilliant display for my eyes to feast on.

    Anywho, on to Wheeljack/Que. SPOILER ALERT BELOW!

    When Wheeljack/Que dies, I would say it is assumed by the audience that Soundwave kills him. However, I am pretty sure that his executioner is actually Barricade! It's not like a blink and you miss it thing either. Next time you watch, once Wheeljack/Que gets shot, Barricade walks straight towards the camera.

    Just thought I would let you guys know the truth if you don't know already.

    Cheers!

    His death was very sad the way he was begging for his life and all. I liked him from what we saw. Wish he would have been called Wheeljack, though
