    Do you think one of these 3 should have died? Would it be emotional?

    Or do you think one of these 3 will die in TF5?

    I can see Hound dying in TF6.

    Maybe Crosshairs will die in TF5? He could save Optimus because he finally respects him. He could say "damn, your leadership brainwashed me haha!" then drift could reply "well, he is Optimus Prime". It's just a thought, plus it develops Crosshairs character.

    1 - that says that brains was build by decepticons, but it does not say he was a decepticon

    2 - comics are not cannon

    Or maybe they just fade away out of existence like Sideswipe, Dino, Arcee Twins, Mudflap and Skids did.

    CANON, dude. And yes, they are canon. John Barber put his blood, sweat and precious metal into weaving together the movie canon. Rising Storm was during the heyday of Barber movie comics. TF Wiki's masterpiece page of the movie timeline is largely thanks to Barber's hard work. So yes, it is canon.

    And yes, Brains was made by the Decepticons, but, as Zangeef said in Wreck-It Ralph, "Just because you're a bad guy, doesn't mean you're a bad guy." His sentience was something they weren't expecting, from what I remember.

    This. Don't see how people could even get attached to any character in this, but that's a separate story. I could see Hound dying but probably not Drift or Crosshairs.

    No, you're wrong. It's not canon. The amount of work put into it doesn't make it canon.

    Yes, it is canon. Any fiction produced that is licenced by Hasbro is canon. However the movies themselves get the veto, so if they directly contradict anything that happens in the comics, novels, or whatever, then the on-screen version is always the right one since they are usually based off of early or incomplete versions of the final script.

    I think they already learned from killing Jazz off so quickly, and it would have pissed off quite a few people if they pulled that again in AOE.

    They really shouldn't kill off any of these new guys in TF5. They've already gotten decent character development but they still need more for their deaths to actually make an impact. An Autobot death won't be emotional at this point unless it's Bumblebee or a permanent Optimus Prime death.

    Really? Ratchet's fate really carried a sense of emotion to me.

    I'd be pissed, personally.

    They're the first new arrivals to actually get some exposure and setup, as well as some real personality and character. If any of them just died, or worse, dissapeared without a mention, it'd suck shit. If a nobody like Jolt who existed purely to waste CGI up and vanishes, nothing of merit is lost. But these three actually felt like real people for a change.

    I honestly would've came home, crawled into a ball on my bed, and shed tons of tears.
