    It happens in every Transformers movie. A beloved Autobot is killed off and some of us get pissed while others mourn a little. However this isn't a thread about who you think will die in Transformers Last Knight. I wanna know who you guys want to die. Let's just say if you were the director of TF5 and based on the characters that we know of now at least, who would you want to kill off? I'd kill off Bumblebee simply because im somewhat sick and tired of him. That's just my opinion though. I wanna read your vote and reason why you'd kill whoever off so leave a comment down below.

    Should die = I think they should die
    Will survive = I think they will survive
    Will die = I think they are going to die


    Hound will survive, he seems like a character that would go down fighting and seemed to want to be like that in TF4, though he does serve the Ironhide style role, so he'll probably remain
    Crosshairs should die, he seems too trusting of Optimus in TF4 and Optimus killing him as the first victim of his 'evil' twist would make the most sense
    Drift should die, he is similar to Crosshairs in that he is trusting of Optimus to the extent of viewing him as a Sensei or teacher-like figure.
    Sweeks will survive given comments about him essentially getting a hero moment. He's effectively a comedy relief character with a hero arc so i doubt he'll die.
    Hot Rod will survive, he'll likely be the new Autobot leader for a different dynamic with Bumblebee
    Grimlock should die, given the Dinobobots are unlikely to get focus after TF5 given they barely recieved focus in TF4
    Cogman should die, given the character is likely minor and his prolonged existence is unlikely to add anything to future films
    Optimus Prime will die in order for the Bumblebee movie to happen, if its set in the present. So he should'nt survive.
    Bumblebee will survive primarily because he's even more marketable than Optimus at this point, he's getting his own movie and Hot Rod has been retconned into his brother presumably for future interactions

    For the Last time none of the 5 Autobots from Age of Extinction will die,i have said this millions of times now, because if you look here, this should be where the final speech will take place.

    It's the most logical place because it's in a open environment.

    Uhhhm did you read the question? Nowhere did I type any Autobots would die, I asked who would you kill off if you were the director.

    Drift, definitely. No disrespect to Ken Watanabe, but I could barely make out what Drift was saying.

    Because his description is completely an individual character and on top of that his vehicle mode is seen rolling with the red/pink Mclaren

    Not trying to be mean at all but serious question. In what way did Crosshairs and Drift seem too trusting towards Optimus in AOE?

    Poor Crosshairs. He's my favourite character in the entire movie-series and he always seems to get shafted by the fans for being an asshole. Even though that's exactly what makes him so great.

    Anyway I voted Squeeks since I actually like all the Autobots, and I'm not sure about the idea of his character. Also having the R2D2 expy actually die would be a new twist.

    Drift and Crosshairs seem to be constantly praising Optimus. Crosshairs makes a remark about how he always knew Optimus would return while Drift has modelled himself on ancient customs viewing Optimus as his sensei or teacher, showing that he looks up to him. Drift and Crosshairs are also shown to obey Prime's orders more so than Hound who threatens to kill in a similar way to Ironhide.

    I just feel that a similar scene to Sentinel killing Ironhide could play out with Optimus turning and killing one of the Autobots who looks up to him. Most obvious choice would be Bumblebee but we know he's safe. Hound didnt really get much bonding time with Optimus.

    At the moment we have a minimum of a main 6 Autobots
    1. Optimus
    2. Bumblebee
    3. Hot Rod
    4. Hound
    5. Drift
    6. Crosshairs

    Maybe the image linked is not showing everything, but i'm counting only 4 Autobots in car form in the shot. The other two vehicles are filming equipment, are'nt they?

    A thread about who should die? Bumblebee is the one I'm sick and tired of, but because I have to choose only one in the poll, I choose Cogman. I can tolerate violence from the Autobots but that ripping heads off and invading their body thing is all kinds of visceral and disgusting. He's literally stealing someone's corpse. Plus, he's a new character and I'm not attached to him.

    It'd be great to see Barricade kill him. Barricade needs some love.
