    Was there a question as to whether he was actually in the film? Seriously?
    Wow. I didn't think anyone actually believed that.

    It's not so strange, actually. He was a new character who wasn't based on a toy and had an unusual design with only a few cues to the original. The other new characters
    Shockwave, Brains, Mirage, the Driller and Wheeljack
    did make it into the movie. So I can see why people would believe that he'd be in it too.

    The whole point of Rising Storm was, apparently, to kill off EVERY non-movie toy-only character. Some even got introduced to be killed. Yes, even Bludgeon died. Astrotrain's death was ridiculous, it's like they ran out of panels and just show Elita slashing him and he explodes, despite being about 10 times her size.

    The only Cons to survive are Starscream and Tankor (in the trailer, we do see a blue Brawl repaint, so he's in the movie) and from the Autobots, all the guys introduced in Nefarious die, yes, even Jolt. As well as Galloway. And Epps resigns afterwards to find a desk job. Shockwave gets half his face sliced off by Prime and damaged a lot, explaining why he looks different in the movie, and Wheeljack and Mirage get damaged a lot too, Ratchet explaining he has to rebuild them (again, explaining why they will look different for the movie).

    No mention of Mikaela, but Sam meets Carly and Brains here.

    I don't recall anyone speculating whether or not he was in the movie, anyway. I never really cared for Astrotrain, so, good news for me.
