    A few people were confused about this, and I was too.
    In ROTF, when Sideways was speeding around, Lennox said "Arcee twins, target coming your way!"
    Now when he said that, did he mean Arcee twins, as in all three bikes (Even though twins would be two).
    Or did he mean Arcee, twins, Arcee being a separate component from the other two bikes (Because Chromia and Elita look more alike).
    Or Arcee twins, as in all three bikes being referred to as Arcee (Because according to Hasbro Arcee is basically a spark divided in three) and the twins, Skids and Mudflap.

    It was "Arcee, Twins" as plainly evident by the following scene in which said target is (not successfully mind you) intercepted by the twins.

    It's: "Arcee, Twins! Target coming your way!" But the problem arises when he doesn't really pause after "Arcee...", making it sound like "Arcee twins...". Simply shouting an order quickly. And it makes sense, since both the Twins and Arcee engage (or attempt to engage) the target.

    But knowing the accuracy of the subtitles, it wouldn't surprise me if the subtitles said: "Arcee twins! Target coming your way!", when it's obviously meant to be the former. :redface2:

    Chromia was adopted into the Arcee hivemind, ergo, twins.

    Another thread about the fucking "Arcee, Twins" shit, I mean is it really that hard for some people to get the answer into their heads?

    If you're triplets and one of you dies do you then become twins?

    And if a tramp falls in the woods and no-one is around to see it does he still get his shoes stolen?

    In theory, no it's not. We have three motorcycles referred to as "Arcee", as well as a pair of characters referred to as "the Twins". Logically, one would assume that Lennox is referring to both groups when he yells. However the sheer fact that this thread exists, and that similar ones have been made before, indicate that it wasn't as obvious to some people as it should have been.

    I honestly thought he was refering to the triplets as "Arcee twins".
