Since there is a ridiculous trend of bashing Prime for doing what he had to do to make sure certain cons didn't come back, I guess I'll point out that he is NOT THE ONLY BOT TO KILL brutally Bumblebee tore the spine out of Ravage Sideswipe literally cut Sideways in half, after shooting him a few times Ironhide stabbed Crankcase in the face, and threw him in a store to explode. So.....In my view, Get over it people. Its not the 80's, which was the only reason they didn't show as graphically then. The transformers of the movie, are their own continuity, and to compare them so often to the way you ''Expect'' them to be. Adaptations are not direct replicas.
