    first and foremost..i hated the twins, but the wreckers were no better.

    the twins were wiggers, while the wreckers where hillbilly rednecks...opposite ends of the same spectrum if you ask me....

    Have we seen the same movie? The Wreckers killing that Protoform was so badass that I almost cried [Topspin ripped off one arm, Roadbuster the other, Leadfoot the head: Pure. awesomeness], The Twins weren't even CLOSE to that level of badassery.

    Leadfoot was one of the best characters ever.
    "Let's kick some ass."
    "You got that right."

    they were nascars for christ sakes...and they acted nothing like scottish people.

    the accents and the "kilt" on topspin is about as much scottish there was. the whole "they're assholes" and being known to mess things up is all hillbilly redneck. Why would a scottish attituded transformer choose a nascar again?

    ratchet chose an ambulance becasue he'sa medic, iron hide chose a big ass truck because hes a big ass guy, and the twins chose rice mobiles because they are "teenage" wigger kids. The wreckers chose nascasrs becasue they're rednecks...despite the accent...besides scottish people can still be rednecks anyways

    also, if you want to get technical..the twins are more bad ass since the two of them took on devestator where as it took 3 wreckers to killa single protoform...not so bad ass when you think about it.

    Seriously? Hillbilly rednecks? If you couldn't tell their accents and slang were from Scotland and England, then you really need to bone up on other cultures' speech patterns and mannerisms. Just because they were NASCARs, it doesn't mean they were rednecks.

    they were rednecks based on their actions and attitudes. being a redneck has nothing to do with your voice...you might want to brush up on culture if thats how you define "redneck"

    also, if the movies have taught us anything about alt modes its that the bots choose modes that fit their personalities.

    3 nascars decked out with guns all over them is 100% hillbilly. all they were missing was an american flag waving behind them and some cans of "energon brewskies"

    I thought the Wreckers were awesome! Made me happy I bought my Human Alliance Roadbuster.

    Wait so rednecks are classified as assholes? The wreckers were given a nascar fan look yes, but they aren't rednecks. They are just badass dudes.

    The instant you care more about soccer than you do about Hank Williams, you can't be a redneck. Leadfoot definately rocks Flogging Molly on the radio while getting in soccer fights.

    rednecks stereotypically are assholes

    watch anything with a stereotypical redneck and they pretty much shoot and hate everything (but nascar)

    I loved the wreckers! at least they contributed somthing to the war!. they didn't have any hillbilly redneck accents what are you talking about? lol. But i liked Roadbuster's scottish accent, it was stupid or too much, it was fine for me.

    I love the wreckers, these guys are what made me decide to watch the movie in the end (didn't want to once I had found out what happens to Ironhide) Only big thing, I wish I could have seen them be these assholes the director was talking about.

    A Scottsman would combust before he could stay in the sun long enough to even get a red neck.

    If anything, this movie showed Rednecks on a POSITIVE light: They're the heroes, they're badass as the damn hell, they are INTELLIGENT as the damn hell [not just goons], they saved the main leads. twice.

    It's much more common to see ginger Irish, but you do see the occasional ginger Scot or Brit; just look at Prince Harry.
