    We've seen the original Blackout in the first movie. Second movie we saw a second Blackout named Grindor. Do you think it is possible if they did another Blackout look alike and probably name him Vortex or something?

    It wouldn't surprise me if we do get another Blackout clone in TF3.

    Wasn't Blackout originally, at one point, going to be Vortex? I swore, when the names of the TF characters were first leaked back when the 07 movie was in production, his name was Vortex but then it was changed to Blackout.

    It's the "last" Bayformers so I'd like to think they're going all out with as many Decepticon baddies as they can get. Maybe all of the Decepticons from the previous movies will be a part of the film.

    A biege/tan "Standstorm" would be kinda neat.

    If they use his likeness again, here's hoping we get a new, larger toy out of it this time.

    The bot looks always cool... and for such little appearances like in ROTF it´s always great :)

    If they decide to include Bruticus, I wouldn't mind if they used Blackout's model for Vortex and even Brawl's model for, well, Brawl, provided a copter and tank remain a part of the combiner.

    If they at least bother to give him a different head this time, maybe.

    It's possible since they still have all the character models stored somewhere and they have shown that at least with the Decepticons they are willing to reuse the same character models.

    Plus didn't Prime rip off Grindor's face when the first movie said that Blackout keeps his spark in his crotch. There could be a faceless Grindor wandering the forest somewhere.

    If they did somethng like this, I'd prefer it if they gave him a new colour (tan like someone said, or green) and made a few changes to the bot mode(ie armour up his stick-legs, altered head) and gave him a few lines, otherwise it's just another clone.

    No, it will be another excuse for Hasbro to repaint the same mold.

    I'm guessing there must be some Pure CGI Decepticon Transformers in TF3 as we have not really seen much of any Earth Vehicle mode like Brawl, Barricade.

    So perhaps Shockwave will have some Cybertronian mode friends or Starscream might finally get his Airforce to assist him.

    Did they have a real Pace Helicopter on set at all for ROTF or is that design totally fake CGI as Grindor even when in Helicopter mode ?

    The scenes in the city of Blackout are all CGI and he looks fine as a vehicle so I guess they didn't need a real Helicopter at all. so they could use the design again I guess.

    Yeah well obviously that is the main reason for a toy fan to want him in the 3rd movie to increase the chances of a larger and hopefully better toy.

    But I just like him anyway I think he looks cool.

    I'll be surprised if we don't see another clone of his to at least some degree. Might just be in the background of a battle, but I can't see them not reusing the model again.

    I also wouldn't mind another repaint of the mold. It's not a perfect figure, but I do like it. Something similar to the Spinister repaint of his Legends class figure would be nice, imho.

    Oh Yes! That would be sweet, this way we could finally get Blackout and Bonecrusher with some decent screen time and Lines!!

    I voted yes because I hope to see Blackout again, I don't know why he never had any lines in ROTF. A Blackout-look-alike would be fine I guess, but it preferably an APACHE. I know BAY has said no resurrections but he has never been a man of his words, as far as I can remember.

    Blackout endured tremendous trauma to most of his body because of the F-22s and Lennox. Being dismantled and dumped in the ocean before a 'Con could stabilize his condition probably didn't help either.

    Personally I wouldn't mind lots of Long Hauls, Scrappers, Blackouts and Brawls reappearing.
