So remind me again, which side are we supposed to be rooting for?
HAHA YES. EXACTLY.
The scary thing about this is that this is not actually Shattered Glass/Mirrorverse, although it could be. Maybe it’s the fact that the Autobots (except apparently Arcee and Optimus) are never faced with this actual horror that every one of these Decepticons are facing right now (except Knock Out, but he’s just there to look cute I guess).
Breakdown basically got dissected. He lost his eye. He was rescued by Bulkhead to be beaten in the ‘smackdown’. Then he died and his body was used as a zombie suit. Bumblebee got his T-cog stolen. Then he got it back.
I don’t think any one of them have ever been as helpless (or as pathetic looking) as Starscream looks in those pictures.
I could go on and on about the implications of the Decepticon miner and Ratchet scene because that is a sequence taken straight out of a war film.
The Megatron picture has been covered pretty thoroughly by now.
And most of the Autobots will probably never go through this kind of horrifying fear for their very existence.
