Movie Sam classreport papers

Is this a genealogy report or an auction? Both

After getting A- for his genealogy report, Sam and his father went to buy a car. They went shopping for a used car. Sam spotted a Camaro that he liked, but Ron refused to go over 4000 dollars. However, when all the windows in the car lot suddenly exploded, Bolivia agreed to it.

Movie Sam Bumble Lake

Taking his friend Miles to the lake, they encountered Mikaela and her boyfriend Trent. Trent pretty much told them to get lost, but Mikaela dumped Trent. Realizing he had his one shot, Sam abandoned Miles and offered to give Mikaela a ride home. When his car had some engine trouble, Mikaela looked under the hood and was quite impressed with the layout of the Camaro's engine, though Sam was more impressed with Mikaela. After berating himself, Mikaela waved goodbye and Sam felt that he made progress.

Movie Sam Bumblebee junkyard
Movie Sam SatansCamaro

Later that night, his car suddenly left. Believing it was stolen, he followed it to a junkyard. To his shock and horror, the car was alive. Some police came and arrested him and an overzealous cop, believing him to be a junkie, ripped him a new one. Returning home, Satan's Camaro arrived and he fled ignominiously on his mother's pink bike. He hit the cement hard in front of Mikaela and soon found a mysterious Saleen S281E police car. He demanded the officer's help, but the police car turned into Barricade. After throwing him onto a nearby car and making him lie down, the robot demanded the location of Sam's eBay item, but Sam fled and ran into Mikaela. Bee arrived and took them to a power plant, where the two robots fought it out, while Sam was chased by Frenzy who tackled him. Fortunately, Sam lost his pants and Mikaela defeated Frenzy.

BarricadeVsSam

Sam, who was convinced to trust the Transformer, and Mikaela approached Bee who spoke through a radio and offered a ride. Mikaela was hesitant, but Sam convinced her to get in.

Alternate Version: Frenzy only knocks down Sam to the ground and accidentally lands his head on the ground making him unconscious, and then Mikaela tries to kick him off of Sam, and then Frenzy starts getting more angry when getting kicked by Mikaela, and she gets a little nervous and tries to make a run for it, she gets to a good distance but Frenzy immediately knocks her down too but she lands on her back instead, “uhh” she groans in pain. Mikaela struggles to get back up to get away from Frenzy, until he then jumps on her and Mikaela rolls onto her stomach and struggles even more while trying to crawl away to get back up, Frenzy grabs her legs and lifts her up and slams her down hard, "oww" Mikaela groans in pain. It cuts away and shows Sam then wakes up while his head is bleeding a little. It cuts back to Frenzy who manages to grab the back of Mikaela’s pants with his grip so strong and starts to pull the back of her pants while in a few seconds her belt unbuckles and her pants button and zipper become undone at the moment. Frenzy is able take Mikaelas pants off by pulling them down her legs as she tries to crawl away from him, and underneath her pants we see Mikaela wear “Pink Lace Strappy G-String.” She still struggles to keep Frenzy away from her as he’s almost done pulling her pants off, and Mikaela is starting to feel scared and embarrassed she looks over her shoulder and sees her G-String is being shown she tries to crawl away but isn't able to, and the next shot quickly shows Sam again who is looking more shocked to see Frenzy pulling down Mikaela's pants revealing her G-String while saying “Oh my God!” The next scene shows Mikaela as she continues to struggle as her jeans are now around her ankles, she screams "He's Going To Kill Me!" She tries to roll but isn't able to, the camera moves closer and shows Mikaela's butt, her Pink G-String barely covering anything. She manages to roll onto her back and she kicks Frenzy away from her. Now in her Pink Lace Strappy G-String and Black Adidas Running Shoes she quickly stands up and runs away as Frenzy chases after her. Sam groans and he gets up to help Mikaela, realizing he isn't strong enough he runs to the shed to find a tool to help Mikaela. The next scene shows Mikaela still in her Pink Lace Strappy G-String and Black Adidas Running Shoes running trying to get away from Frenzy as he’s so fast. The next scene from the movie shows Sam in the shop finding a power saw and close up of his face where he's furious with Frenzy chasing after him and Mikaela. Then it shows where Frenzy jumps on Mikaela causing her to accidentally run into a fence and they both roll down a hill making Mikaela hit another fence hard at the bottom, “uhh” Mikaela moans in pain as she quickly gets up and then Frenzy jump on her again while trying to grab her. Mikaela covers himself "UHH GET OFF" she yells as she throws Frenzy on the ground, then Frenzy stands up and starts dancing his legs while Mikaela still in her Pink Lace Strappy G-String starts dancing her legs as well continuing to fight off Frenzy, and then Sam comes to the rescue decapitating Frenzy where he only has his head, and then Sam’s funny dialogue and what he does in the movie “Not so tough without a head are you?!” and kicks Frenzy far away. Sam then groans in pain a little and drops the power saw as he touches his head and realize blood on his hand knowing he’s bleeding a little, “crap” he mutters. Then Mikaela worried about Sam’s head bleeding quickly rushes to him and asks if he’s ok, and replies with “yes” and asks if she’s ok as well and so she also say yes, although Sam still notices her G-String is still showing and is still worried about her getting her jeans taken off, but she brushes it off and tells him not to worry about it and chuckles again for a bit to which Sam starts to chuckle as well as he’s accepting that she’s ok about it then she quickly hugs him for a moment as well. And then Sam and Mikaela still only in her Pink Lace Strappy G-String and Black Adidas Running Shoes goes to check up on Bumblebee to see if he’s defeated Barricade and so he did and then in that scene Mikaela starts to get worried about Bumblebee attacking them but Sam figures out that he’s there to protect them along with other autobot’s including Optimus Prime to find the cube that Bumblebee explains to them through his radio and then transforms back into a car where Sam and Mikaela still wearing her Pink Lace Strappy G-String and Adidas Running Shoes decides to get in, and when Frenzy disguises himself as Mikaela’s phone, Bumblebee heads for Mikaela’s purse, and she picks up her purse herself and her other stuff, but however as she goes to get her jeans she finds them ripped up, "Damn it" Mikaela groans angrily as she is now gonna be in her Pink Lace Strappy G-String while wearing her Long Pink Sleeve Shirt with Denim Jacket and Adidas Running Shoes, she gets back into Bee.

As Mikaela asked why the robot was so advanced and he turn into crap, he forced them out. As Sam lamented how 4000 dollars drove off, it returned as a 2007 Camaro. Taking the teens to an observatory, they watched as 4 meteors entered Earth's atmosphere, during which Mikaela instinctively reached out for Sam's hand. They were then escorted to an alley, where they had their biggest surprise. 4 other cars transformed into robots. The lead robot, introduced himself as Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots, autonomous robotic lifeforms from a planet known as Cybertron. Prime introduced Jazz, his first lieutenant, Ironhide, his weapons expert, Ratchet, their medical officer, and probably introduces Bumblebee, Sam's guardian, to the two teens. Optimus explained their mission to locate the All Spark, the betrayal of Megatron and the Decepticons, and how Archibald Witwicky's glasses played a vital role in finding the All Spark.

Movie Sam Mikaela meettheAutobots

Going to his house, he and Mikaela searched for the glasses, but the Autobots totally wrecked his dad's backyard. Since Prime caused a lot of noise, his parents thought it was an earthquake and went to check on him. After finding the glasses, government agents arrived. Typical government Agent Simmons took him, his parents and Mikaela to their custody. During the drive, Sam discovers that Mikaela has a juvie record because her dad has been arrested for stealing cars.

Just as Simmons demanded answers about aliens, Prime intercepted the convoy, and the Autobots totally outclassed the agents. He demanded to know what Sector Seven was, but a backup team arrived. Prime took Sam and Mikaela to hide under a bridge, but they nearly fell to their deaths. Bumblebee saved them, but was captured with Sam and Mikaela recaptured.

Movie Sam Bumblebee capture

Taken to Hoover Dam, Simmons tried the awkward role of good cop, but he was uninterested in talking. Tom Banachek tried to bribe him, and he demanded the freeing of Bee, his parents, and the expunging of Mikaela's criminal record. Taking them into the Dam, Sector Seven showed them Megatron (Movie), who Sam recognized as the leader of the Decepticons. He explained Megatron's goals and the purpose of the All Spark. However,the spastic abomination that pantsed him sent a message to the Decepticons, Sam implored Sector Seven to release Bee, saying he could help, which Captain Lennox assisted by putting a gun to Simmons' chest. Bee converted the All Spark to a smaller form and the soldiers escorted the teens and Bee to Mission City, soon augmented by the Autobots.

Movie Megatron Samonroof

Upon reaching Mission City, a F-22 Raptor was spotted, which Ironhide recognized as Starscream. Starscream attacked, destroying Bumblebee's legs and a tank attacked the soldiers. As the Autobots and the soldiers dealt with the tank, Mikaela arrived with a tow truck to add Bee into the battle. Megatron soon arrived and killed Jazz and Lennox ordered Sam to take the All Spark to a building to be escorted out of the city. Despite his refusal to leave, Bee handed the Cube to Sam, urging him to go. Sam was pursued by Megatron, Starscream, and a helicopter, with Ratchet and Ironhide providing protection, but they were easily injured by Starscream and Sam was forced to leave without them. During his flight, Sam dropped the All Spark, causing some nearby machines to come to life. Reaching the building,Sam ignited a flare, but his ride was prevented by Starscream.

Movie Sam defeats Megatron

Cornered on the roof, Megatron demanded the All Spark, in exchange for living to be his pet, but Sam refused. Megatron used his flail to knock him off the roof, but he was saved by Prime. Telling him to hold onto the cube, Prime tried to scale down the building, but Megatron knocked them all off. Prime comments Sam bravery as he sees that he was willing to risk his life to protect the All Spark but he responds by telling him of his family motto, no sacrifice, no victory. Sam was then told by Prime that if he couldn't defeat Megatron, he was to merge the Cube with his spark, destroying both Prime and the All Spark. However, Megatron was too powerful for Prime to defeat alone and he told Sam to push the cube into his chest. Instead, he merged the All Spark with Megatron, killing him. Prime extended his thanks, telling him he owed him a debt of gratitude. When Bee briefly spoke and asked if he can stay with him, Sam accepts his request as they formed an unbreakable friendship during their adventure. Transformers (film)

Titan Magazines[]

In an alternate reality, Sam held the key to Earth's survival, and his attempt to destroy Megatron with the All Spark... failed. Sam was killed and Mikaela & Bumblebee mourn him still. Bumblebee wondered if there was another reality where Sam's attempt succeeded and the Decepticons didn't conquer the United States... Transformers Comic issue 9

Revenge of the Fallen film[]

Actor: Shia LaBeouf, Stunt double: Vladimir Tevlovski

Sam prepares to go to college, but his parents have letting go issues. While he is looking through his mementos from Mission City, a shard of the All Spark falls out of his shirt into his hand and shocks him, causing him to see images of weird symbols in his eye. Once he sees the symblols in his eye, Sam drops the shard and it burns through the floor, falling into the kitchen where it brings to life all of the appliances. The appliances shoot at him but he lies down to escape the shots. Sam escapes and Bumblebee destroys the appliance bots. Afterward, he gives the shard to Mikaela, but is unable to admit he loves her saying he wants her to do it first which frustrates her. Sam ends up having to spill the bad news to Bumblebee - Bee can't come with him to college as freshmen aren't allowed to have cars and Sam tells Bumblebee to return to the other Autobots.

At college, Sam is freaked out by Leo Spitz, his roommate, and mortified by his mother who eats a pot brownie. He tries to get a change of rooms but fails. Sam misses his first web-cam date with Mikaela due to being dragged off to a party by his roommate, Leo and is hit upon by a co-ed named Alice. Before things can go too far, Bumblebee shows up to take him to Optimus Prime. Optimus asks for his help in convincing the United States government, but Sam refuses as he wants a normal life now by stating "This isn't my war" and doesn't think Optimus Prime truly needs him.

During his first day, he has a mental breakdown due to the information the All Spark put into his head and is kicked out of class. He realizes what the All Spark did to him and calls Mikaela to warn her about it. After beating Wheelie, she decides to come to him. Sam has another breakdown and starts drawing the symbols over everything after returning to his room. Alice and Leo show up and she kicks Leo out, forcing herself on Sam and making him lie down. Sam who is unable to get away and doesn't see the tentacle she sends at him. He's saved by Mikaela's arrival, and Mikaela, sure she's caught him cheating on her, breaks up with him on the spot and leaves. Alice waited until Mikaela had left, and then proceeded to extrude it again and wrap it about Sam's neck, closing off his windpipe. His screams for help draw Mikaela and Leo who's arrival distracts Alice as Sam scoots away on his butt and allows him to get away. Alice reveals herself to be a Decepticon Pretender and chases the three of them. They escape in a car hotwired by Mikaela and she kills Alice who continued to give chase to them.

Unfortunately, they are captured by Grindor who takes them to a resurrected Megatron, who is waiting with Scalpel and Starscream at an abandoned warehouse. Megatron throws Sam onto a table and makes him lie down while Scalpel crawls on him and examines him. Scalpel uses extremely invasive measures as he lets a worm squirm around in Sam's throat, making Sam squirm and spit out some goo. Mikaela and Leo watch in horror as Scalpel pulls out a buzz saw to cut out his brain. However, Optimus and Bumblebee rescue them and Sam goes with Optimus while Mikaela and Leo go with Bumblebee. Sam witnesses Optimus battle Megatron, Starscream and Grindor all at once. Though killing Grindor, Optimus Prime is killed by Megatron right in front of Sam. Optimus Prime's last words are for Sam to run. Sam is saved by the other Autobots and goes on the run with Mikaela, Leo, Bumblebee, Skids and Mudflap while the other Autobots are taken into custody by the government.

Sam gets depressed over Optimus sacrificing himself to save him and decides to turn himself in after The Fallen's broadcast. The others convince him not to and turn to him as their leader. After realizing the symbols he keeps seeing are the key and after Skids and Mudflap are unable to translate them, he decides they will go see Leo's rival, "RoboWarrior" for help.

In Brooklyn, Leo finds RoboWarrior and when Sam and Mikaela are called in, they're shocked at who it is: former Agent Seymour Simmons of Sector Seven. Simmons initially won't help, but Sam convinces him to by showing him one of the symbols he keeps drawing. Simmons shows them drawings of symbols just like the ones Sam kept drawing and reveals that the Transformers have been on Earth a long time. He shows them pictures of suspected Cybertronians as well and Mikaela brings out her captured Decepticon Wheelie to identify the symbols. Wheelie is unable to translate them, but recognizes the pictures of the Cybertronians (Seekers) and is shocked they have pictures of them. Wheelie offers to lead them to the Seekers, the only ones who can translate the language.

Wheelie leads them to the Smithsonian and Sam revives the Seeker there with the All Spark shard. Too late that Mikaela realizes that the Seeker is a Decepticon. The Seeker wakes up, but mostly disregards them at first. The Seeker reveals his name is Jetfire and he has defected to the Autobots. This causes Wheelie to defect as well. Sam draws the symbols in the ground with a knife and mentions The Fallen to Jetfire who remembers their mission and teleports them to Egypt via a Space bridge.

Sam injures his hand upon arrival and Mikaela bandages it. They need an explanation from Jetfire and he explains where they are and the history of The Fallen and the Dynasty of Primes. Upon learning that only a Prime can defeat The Fallen and of the Matrix's power, Sam decides that they will find the Matrix and use it to bring Optimus back to life. Jetfire gives them the clue he has deciphered and passes off his mission to Sam before having them to leave him behind.

Simmons figures out what part of the message means, and Sam has Simmons to call Lennox to get Optimus' body to that location. Sam and his friends spend the night near the Great Pyramids of Giza. While talking with Mikaela, Sam realizes what the rest of the message means. The group travels to the mountains of Petra to find the Matrix, and thanks to the Twins antics, they find the tomb. Sam finds the Matrix, but it crumbles to sand in his hands. Desperate, he puts it in his sock and believes that it will still work. Sam and his group then head for the rendezvous point to meet up with Lennox and his team so he can try to revive Optimus Prime.

They get close, but are attacked by Megatron and Starscream. Sam sends Bumblebee and the Twins off to distract them. Simmons and Leo go with the Autobots to help buy more time. Sam and Mikaela make it to an abandoned town nearby, but have to hide from the Decepticons. While hiding, an Insecticon finds them. Sam kills it, but alerts the Decepticons to their presence.

Sam and Mikaela end up running, but are forced to stop when Skipjack shows up with his parents as hostages. Sam's parents try to get him to run, but Sam spots Bumblebee and distracts Skipjack long enough for him to sneak up. Bumblebee kills Skipjack and Ravage. Sam has him to take his parents, who finally accept that he has grown up, to safety. Sam and Mikaela run through the battle, as they run they takes off their jackets for unknown reasons and meet up with Lennox and Epps. They are nearly cornered by Mixmaster, but Jetfire returns to help and kills Mixmaster and Scorponok.

Unfortunately, after the Decepticons are bombarded by the Air Force, Sam rushes for Optimus too early, and is killed by a blast from Megatron. Lennox and a medic try to revive him, but fail. Even Mikaela admitting she loves him fails. In a vision-like state, Sam encounters the spirits of the Primes. The Primes tell him that he has displayed the qualities of a true leader and has earned the Matrix which has to be "earned" instead of "found", which is why it crumbled to dust when he picked it up. The Primes reveal that this has always been Sam's destiny, then resurrect him. As soon as he resurrects, Sam finally admits he loves Mikaela and the Matrix regenerates.

Sam then uses the Matrix to revive Optimus who is surprised, but happy, that Sam came back for him. The Fallen finally shows up and takes the Matrix before Optimus can fully recover, but Jetfire sacrifices himself to give his parts to Optimus and make him more powerful. Sam watches as Optimus kills The Fallen and forces a badly injured Megatron and Starscream to escape, leaving everyone relieved. Simmons and Leo reunite with them, having destroyed the Devastator. On the bow of an aircraft carrier, Optimus joins Sam and thanks him for saving his life. Sam says "You're welcome", and reciprocates by thanking Optimus for believing in him. Sam, Optimus, Mikaela and Leo stand on the bow as Optimus sends out another message.

At some later point, Sam kisses Mikaela goodbye and returns to college where his professor sarcastically refers to him as Professor Einstein and thanks him for rejoining them to which Sam said he's been busy. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Dark of the Moon film[]

Actor: Shia LaBeouf, Stunt double: Colin Follenweider

Sam has been dumped by Mikaela, given a Medal of Freedom for his actions in Egypt and now lives with his new girlfriend Carly, Mikaela's former pet ex-Decepticon Wheelie, Brains and his pet dog while Bumblebee no longer lives with him, making him have to use a piece of crap car to get around. Sam doesn't have a job and wants to work with the Autobots, but gets rejected and after his parents show up. He goes to a bunch of job interviews where he is rejected each time until he gets to Accuretta Systems where he meets Bruce Brazos. There, he is offered a job as a mail boy, but wanting to matter again and refuses at first, but Brazos is impressed by him and gives him the job. Sam then meets up with Carly and her boss, Dylan Gould, and becomes jealous of their friendship despite Gould secretly revealing he helped Sam get the job.

Later at work, Sam gets visited by Carly, who now drives an expensive car that Gould gave her, making Sam even more jealous and is asked to a party that Gould is holding. Later, he is accosted by a fellow employee, Jerry Wang, who recognizes him from pictures with the Autobots. Wang scared Sam and gave him a manifesto about the dark side of the Moon. Sam tracked Jerry down, but Jerry acted weird and pretended not to know him, so Sam left. Jerry was killed moments later by Laserbeak who chases Sam through the office before Sam escapes. Sam takes Carly to alert the Autobtos, but is refused entrance to the base until Bumblebee shows up and Sam berates him for not visiting. Sam tells Lennox what happened and gives Jerry's manifesto to him, but is rebuffed by Charlotte Mearing for visiting. Sam then witnesses the revival of Sentinel Prime by Optimus with the Matrix of Leadership. Afterwards, Sam is sent home with Bumblebee for protection.

At home, Sam is dissatisfied with being brushed off and decides to ask Simmons for help in deciphering the Decepticons plans, getting what Wang was working on from Brazos in exchange for letting him meet Bumblebee. The two figure out that Wang made it so that NASA's probes wouldn't map the dark side of the Moon and that the Decepticons must be hiding something there. Carly arrives to prepare for the party and is mad that Sam is trying to figure out the Decepticons' plans and leaves. Sam and Simmons then head to Atlantic City after Brains discovers two former Soviet cosmonauts hiding there. After a brief standoff, the cosmonauts reveal pictures that show that the Decepticons recovered hundreds of space bridge pillars from the Ark and had hidden them before Apollo 11 arrived. Sam realizes that they needed the Autobots to find and revive Sentinel and need him for their plans to work. With the help of Dino and Sideswipe, Sam and Bumblebee escort Sentinel back to base chased by the Dreads. Along the way, one is killed by Dino and the other two are killed by Ironhide who shows up to help near the base. At the base, Sam can only watch in shock as Sentinel murders Ironhide and retrieves the pillars.

Sam returns home to try to get Carly and after getting advice from his parents, heads to Dylan's party where Dylan reveals himself to be the leader of the Decepticons human collaborators and that his father was responsible for the end of the Apollo program. Dylan uses Soundwave, who has been disguised as Carly's car all along, to force Sam to cooperate and find out the Autobots' plans for the Decepticons through the Watch-bot they place on his wrist.

Sam gets taken to a base where Mearing asks him if he knows anything else and apologizes for underestimating him. Sam is unable to tell her the truth because of the Watch-bot and is shocked to learn that the Autobots are being expelled from the planet. Sam asks Optimus the Autobots plans, secretly signaling him that the Decepticons are listening by telling him no other human will know and Optimus claims they don't have any before leaving after Sam and Bumblebee say a sad goodbye. After Gould calls to confirm what he learned, Sam is forced to watch as the Autobot ship, the Xantium is destroyed with the Autobots.

Sam, wanting to save Carly, has Simmons track the signal from Gould's call and heads to Chicago with Epps and other former NEST members to rescue Carly. They arrive at the city to find it full of Decepticons and Decepticon ships and Epps refuses to head in even though Sam is determined to. The group comes under attack from a Decepticon fighter, but they are saved by Optimus and the other Autobots who escaped the Xantium before its destruction by Starscream. Sam and Bumblebee proceed to use the fighter to travel to Gould's penthouse where Sam tries to rescue Carly, but is attacked by Laserbeak. Bumblebee rescues Sam who takes Carly to the ship, but Laserbeak pins Sam down and sort of tickled him before Bumblebee shoots Laserbeak. Using a shot-down UAV, Sam and Carly relay Sentinel's plans to bring Cybertron to Earth.

Needing to stop Sentinel, Sam comes up with the plan to climb a building and use a rocket launcher to shoot down the Control Pillar. With the help of the Autobots, the group makes it close and Que arms them with grappling gloves and boom sticks to use against the Decepticons. They make it into the building, but before they can fire, the Decepticon fighters shoot the building over on its side and they are forced to flee from a Decepticon that enters the building. The group is then nearly killed by the Driller, but Optimus saves them and kills the Driller, allowing them to escape mostly unharmed.

While trying to make it to a bridge to cross the river, they come under attack by Starscream and Sam and Carly get separated from Epps and the others. Starscream is delighted to have the chance to kill Sam and after hiding Carly, Sam shoots a grappling hook into Starscream's right optic, causing Starscream to thrash around and drag Sam with him before he slams Sam through a window into an apartment. NEST attacks Starscream, distracting him and allowing Sam to arm one of his boom sticks, jump on Starscream and stick it into his other optic. Sam gets swung around as Starscream thrashes around even more, but Lennox cuts him free and Bumblebee catches them as the boom stick explodes, decapitating and killing Starscream.

After linking up with NEST and Epps' team near a bridge, Sam is forced to watch as Soundwave prepares to execute Bumblebee after the death of Que. Sam tries to arm another boom stick and help, but the boom stick shorts out. Luckily, Wheelie and Brains cause a distraction (running the largest of drop ships close to their position), allowing Bumblebee to break free and kill Soundwave.

Sam rides with Bumblebee to the site of Optimus' battle with Sentinel after Optimus shoots the Control Pillar down. After hearing Sentinel call for anyone to reactivate it, he heads off to stop anyone who tries. Sam reaches the pillar and fights Gould who reactivates it. Sam proves to be no match for Gould, but manages to hit him with a pole which has a piece of cement attached to it, knocking Gould into the pillar and electrocuting him to death. Sam quickly calls for help and Bumblebee destroys the pillar, stopping the arrival of Cybertron and destroying the planet.

After the battle, Sam reunites with Carly and the two admit they love each other. Bumblebee, trying to help, drops a bunch of rings and plays wedding music, trying to get Sam to propose, but Sam tells him that's taking it too fast. Dark of the Moon

The Last Knight Film[]

Sam's profile picture from his eBay account was included among the portraits of members of the Order of the Witwiccans kept by Sir Edmund Burton. But; due to Burton being the last surviving member, it can be implied that; Sam is dead at this point. The Last Knight

Skills[]

  • Messenger Intuition: When it comes to saving the universe from the Decepticons, Sam’s role is to carry and deliver reliable information of the Transformer's history such as: plots, artifacts, and tends to figure out how to thwart them from humanity regardless of any given situation. Which allows him these following characteristics in being a messenger.
  • High-level Intelligence: Sam is shown to be a very smart young man since his time in high school and used this as an advantage for when the Transformers arrived. Sam then decided they should try and find out what the symbols he had been seeing meant, upon Sam showing the symbols and mentioning The Fallen's name, Jetfire opened a space bridge and teleported the entire group to Egypt, and proceeded to tell them about “The Fallen”, who betrayed his brothers, the Primes, many millennia ago. The Fallen intended to destroy the Earth's sun in order to create Energon, the Transformers' source of energy, and the symbols in Sam's head were a map to the location of the Star Harvester, the weapon intended to use to destroy the sun. Jetfire also revealed that only a Prime could stop The Fallen, and a key was needed to activate the harvester: the Matrix of Leadership. He realised that the Three Kings were in fact the star constellations above the Pyramids, which pointed to Jordan. In the Petra mountains, the group discovered the tomb of the Primes. Sam claims whether the Matrix would also revive Optimus Prime. When he found the Matrix, which crumbled to dust when he touched it. Sam collected the dust regardless, and together they traveled back to Egypt. He was able to use the Matrix to revive Optimus Prime, who ultimately was able to defeat The Fallen.
  • Geopolitics: After graduating college, Sam majored in geo-politics, having listed this as one of his skills at his job interviews. He is also made use of it during the invasion when realizing the Decepticons plotted to use the pillars to transport Cybertron to Earth.
  • Skilled Detective: After being given a manifesto by Jerry Wing, Sam went through the notes which contained information regarding the dark side of the Moon. Sam decided he wasn't going to let the matter go and called Simmons and his assistant Dutch for help. The group went through piles of information and came to the conclusion that humans were working with the Decepticons and had been doing so since the space race. After tracking down a pair of Russian cosmonauts, the group learned that there were once hundreds of Pillars, but the Decepticons had stolen them before anyone had reached the Ark. Sam realizes that the Decepticons had left behind Sentinel, the only one who could control the Pillars, so that the Autobots could revive him, as he was the key to reactivate them.
  • Vast Resources: After the previous wars, Sam had large amount of connections to each of his allies who were military personnel and was capable of planning together strategies and tactics in attempts to stop the Decepticons and their human assets.
  • Strong-Willed: Before the arrival of the Transformers, Witwicky was considered a somewhat wimp but has become more driven with the virtues of a leader with courage, honor, and sacrifice during the crisis of saving the universe from the Decepticons. When being ordered to get the AllSpark to a building by Lennox, Sam reaches the top of the roof only to wound up being surrounded and confronted by both Megatron and Starscream who would let him live as their pet if he gave up the cube. However Sam follows the motivation of “No Sacrifice, No Victory” and refuses right before Optimus saves him from falling. Then in Revenge of the Fallen, he was determined in his quest for finding the Matrix of Leadership to save the planet including Optimus' life even after it was turned to dust he still believed it would work and placed it in a sock to then pursue into getting to him. Then after being blasted by Megatron, Sam was in a vision of the Primes who informed him that the Matrix wasn’t to be found but earned and that his sacrifice was the key in activating it and came back to life to successfully restore Optimus. In Dark of the Moon, he displayed great feats of bravery to help out his allies against the invasion and save his girlfriend Carly despite presuming the Autobots were dead until they finally arrived to declare battle.
  • Combatant: Sam isn't so proficient in any formal combat skills, but he is a capable combatant, as he was able to flip Frenzy before he was chopped apart by Mikaela and Sam kicked his head far away, and briefly subdued a sector 7 soldier armed with nitrogen gun to redirect it away from Bumblebee. In Dark of the Moon, he grappled a security guard at N.E.S.T base to the ground with relative ease and held Laserbeak in place as Bumblebee blasted the Decepticon's head off. Then fought against Dylan Gould when Sam was being hold at gunpoint, a piece of newspaper flew in his face which allowed Sam to hit his leg with a stone which caused Gould to drop the gun and was punched across the face. After he was briefly subdued by Dylan kicking him, Sam gets back up to kill him with a pole which has a piece of cement attached to it, wrathfully knocking Gould into the pillar and electrocuting him to death.
  • Athleticism: Despite after failing at trying out for football in his sophomore year of high school, Sam's still shown to be athletically strong, fast, and resilient for going into war zones. These skills were demonstrated in the three films. Sam' strength is athletically capable to briefly hold off against the Decepticon Frenzy till he was chopped apart and his head was kicked meters away. In the third film, he also restrained Laserbeak, until Bumblebee shot his head off and able to catch Carly from falling from a broken building with one arm saving her life. Then his muscle power channeled with anger caused him enough force to swing a pole of cement to have Dylan Gould pushed back to be electrified and killed by the pillar.
  • Peak Human Durability: Sam is very tough as when he gets smacked into the windshield of a car by Barricade but recovered quickly. In revenge of the Fallen, he was able to withstand many of the mini-bot decepticons small projectile attacks and even survive from Megatron's as he rarely obtained any major injuries. During the third film, Sam endured each of Starscream's swings while using his grapple-glove to fight him and withstood a kick from Dylan Gould to kill him at the last pillar.
  • Peak Human Stamina: He even sustains energy to stay active for extensive time periods as he kept moving from being attacked by Decepticons, and managed to catch up with Dylan at the last pillar by performing parkour and free-running at fast pace when jumping and sliding through obstacles like poles and cars without any signs of fatigue.
  • Peak Human Running: He possesses feats of peak speed as on the night he was riding his bicycle after Bumblebee then the next day when being followed by him. Sam was able to outrun many Decepticons while carrying the AllSpark through the battle going on in the city, by ducking, rolling and covering from each of their attacks including blast weaponry. He was even fast enough to outrun from Megatron destroying the platform underneath of where Sam was running on. In the second film he managed to quickly sprint away from Megatron and Starscream chasing him in the woods even after Optimus' sacrifice, then in Egypt he ran fast enough to evade the Decepticons and survived in reaching Optimus' body to revive him with the Matrix after being resurrected by the Primes. Then in Dark of the Moon, he easily escapes from Laserbeak after attacking his office.
  • Peak Human Stealth: Sam has great advantages in stealth movements for in Revenge of the Fallen, he managed to be silent around dozens of Decepticons from finding him. As well as sneak around them in a war zone during Dark of the Moon.
  • Alien Weapon Proficiency: In the Transformers trilogy, he was proficiently skilled in using weapons made from Cybertronian technology for combat against the Decepticons. In the first film, when ordered by Optimus to place the AllSpark cube in his chest, he does this process to Megatron successfully killing him temporarily as his body was revived and inferiority weakened after two years due to it. Then in the battle/war in Chicago during the third film, he was given the prototypes of a grapple-glove and boom-stick explosives by Wheeljack/Que. Sam aimed the grapple-glove at Starscream’s eye causing the already panicked Decepticon to go blind and feel agonizing pain over it as well as increasing his wild flailing as the explosive device's timer ticked down to zero for it was primed, once embedded in his other eye, at which point destroyed the decepticon's head and most of his chest, killing him.

Weapons[]

  • Flare: During the first Transformers film, He was handed a emergency flare by Lennox, who ordered Sam to get to the roof of the building which he ignited for the helicopter pilote to pickup the cube.
  • AllSpark Cube/Shard: Sam was also given the Allspark cube to protect from the Decepticons and merged it to Megatron’s spark which fragmented it into shards. Two years later in Revenge of the Fallen, he used the last piece of the shard to resurrect Jetfire for help against the war.
  • Matrix of Leadership: In Revenge of the Fallen, he located the tomb of the Primes and found the Matrix which was briefly turned to dust until later it emerged back together for him to bring Optimus to life.
  • Cybertronian Grapple Glove: In Transformers; Dark of the Moon, Sam primary used this gadget to fire a small razor sharp harpooned dart with a length of high tension wire attached to it allowing it to be used for climbing.
  • Cybertronian Boom-sticks: Sam secondary wielded Cybertronian explosives for weaponry against enemies. It is a spear like weapon: when activated, a spear point shoots out and is stabbed into the enemy. Before the boomstick detonates in thirty seconds and destroys whatever its impaled into.

Transformers (2007)[]

  • First Encounter (Screen Battles, 2007)
Japanese ID number: SB-01
Movie ScreenBattles SamMikaelaFrenzy

Yes, run toward the crazy robot.

This Screen Battles pack features a largely unchanged Deluxe class Barricade figure but the Frenzy accessory has been cast in black plastic to better blend in with Barricade's chest. The pack also comes with unposable figurines of Sam Witwicky in a running pose, Frenzy menacing Sam and Mikaela Banes holding the power saw she uses to attack Frenzy. The set is packaged in a special window box with a diorama depicting the battle between Barricade and Bumblebee.

Revenge of the Fallen[]

  • Bumblebee (Human Alliance, 2009)
Sam is the human that comes with Bumblebee. He can sit in Bumblebee's seat or in his arm looking like he is firing the guns on his arm. His face has a strange expression much like the one where he started seeing symbols and freaked out. He's a lot more possible than his "First Encounter" version.

Notes[]

  • Sam was not given the nickname "Spike", nor his father the nickname "Sparkplug" (though his wife does refer to him as "Spark"), because unlike their Generation One counterparts the movie characters are not oil rig workers or mechanics. Earlier drafts of the script did have Sam earning the nickname "Spike" another way, but this was dropped before the script was finalized. [1]
  • Thanks to his brawl with Frenzy, the back of Sam's shirt is ripped, leaving a hole in the back exposing his back. Interestingly, no one points this out to him or even notices during the time he gets a replacement jacket.
  • Sam's eBay username 'LadiesMan217' is a reference to movie director Michael Bay's birthday, February 17. If 217 had the same meaning for Sam, that would make his date of birth February 17, 1990.[1] ladiesman217 is a registered user on eBay, with no items currently for sale.
  • In the Japanese dub of the film, Sam's eBay username is changed from "LadiesMan217" to "playboy217", since "ladies' man" isn't a term the Japanese are familiar with; To better suit this joke in the Spanish version, his Username is "DonJuan217", named after the famed Spanish womanizer. In the polish version, his username is translated as "dogforbabies217". In the Spanish version from Spain, his Username is also "LadiesMan217". In the IDW comics adaptation, his ePay username is "hotstud217". This is even more disturbing.
  • According to screenwriter Roberto Orci, he and writing partner Alex Kurtzman pitched the character of Sam as "Marty McFly on crack." [2]
  • The junior novel of Revenge of the Fallen implies that Sam has become a Prime in his own right.
    • This means that Sam is the first Human to achieve the rank of Prime. The second is Jack Darby. Sam achieved the rank by risking his life to save Optimus while Jack earned the rank by Optimus granting him the Key to Vector Sigma.
  • Sam says "SHIT" a lot.
  • He also says "no,no,no!" even more times than "$hi7" it would seem! Obviously, he and Megatron would've been the BEST of friends, yessss, this is a staple of most of Shia LaBeouf's characters.
  • It can be argued that Sam is one of the most dangerous foes the Decepticons ever faced, as he single-handedly managed to kill both Megatron, and Starscream, thus depriving the Decepticons of their leader, and second in command. Also, he tends to figure out the Decepticons' plots and how to thwart them, although Optimus does most of the fighting.
  • When forced to fight, Sam is not a bad fighter as he single-handedly kills Megatron, Starscream and Dylan Gould with what he has at the time that's deadly. Also, he fought Laserbeak and helped Bumblebee kill him.
  • According to the Fallen in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the AllSpark cannot be destroyed, but only "transform", implying that Sam's brain may have been merged with the AllSpark during the time. After he returns from the death, the effect seems to cease to exist because the Matrix.
