The technobots that bit it ... Lightspeed and Nosecone. Both died in the battle of Kimia.
Yeah Cattleprod .. that's what I was thinking of, ol' Razorclaw. Certainly appeared to die, but its up to debate. And Brawl at least taken out of action. Seems like an anti Gestalt conspiracy to me.
Just a little plot hole concerning combiner teams. Didn't Arcee slice the spark out of Brawl and Blast Off on Garus-9? I still remember reading that and fuming at the thought of no Bruticus. Then in comic book fashion, hey we're back! I was pleased at their return, but in the same token it lessens the impact that occured during that scene at Garrus-9, because not only was I lamenting the loss of Bruticus, but I was also awestruck in witnessing Arcee's shear socialpathic brutality. Surely it was meant to be fatal. Arcee only does fatal. Doesn't she?

And I must confess ... it is a nice ass.

I agree that some of the reactions to TFs taking damage seem odd. I remember when Guzzle was ripped apart at the start of LSotW#5, and then used to smash Kup in the head. Everyone seemed to be saying: "Well, that's it for Guzzle, and wow, maybe even Kup is dead!" While I was thinking: "There's no way Kup's dead and surely a decent chance that Guzzle will still be able to crawl around with no legs."
I guess the rule I'm going by is: head/brain module destroyed = dead. Spark crushed/destroyed = dead. Anything else, however extreme = temporary deactivation. Hewn limbs = inconvenience. Shot to the chest = temporary blackout.

One of the most memorable TF comic book deaths was Shockwave in Legacy Of Unicron when Deaths Head destroyed him but removed his brain module just in case. That was a definitive death.
I wonder does such thing as a neural cluster exist in IDW TFs. According to Deaths Head in Wanted Galvatron it was the weakest point on all TFs. Readers wanted to know where it was and it turned out it was at the neck.
