DOTM was supposed to be the end all of the movieverse. Decepticons were all wiped out.
Now they're continuing but since they still haven't made it clear exactly what TF4 is going to be (reboot, or same universe but far in the future, or just unclear at all) they can't really make comics about anything.
It was easy when the cons were still around and NEST was hunting them and there was only a year or so gap between films. But they can't do that anymore.
They don't know where the new cons if any are coming from. And they don't know if TF4 is going to be 30 years in the future or something.
they already confirmed what tf4 is, its a direct sequel to the past 3 films, its not a reboot, bay confirmed it recently
I'm actually curious about what that means for the Twins. Was their one second cameo an error? Or were they supposed to have been in the film but disappeared. I don't think they're dead, despite their deaths in other adaptations of the story, because Barricade was also killed in the orginal movies comic/novel but since it was cut from the film, he wound up living.
the twins were going to be in the movie, but due to ppl calling them racist and such bay took them off, but forgot to remvoe the scene in where we see them in alt mode, Ppl claims that colored body parts can be ssen on the scene where they were meant to die, ifi ts true then they did died offscreen
barricade is a different thing, if the twins were alive they would had been seen on the autobot convoy as they were heading to NASA and taken part of the chicago battle, Barricade (like any con) could had escaped and such (the comci sequels shwos that he was attacked by ironhide and survived)
