    This was discussed on another forum, but I thunk it´s another angle of seeing the Twins. What if they are the Autobot´s version of child soldiers?

    Wait, I don't see what the problem with this thread is.

    We have seen some evidence that 'size=age' in the TF Movieverse. Older you are, bigger you grow. We have also seen how Wheelie describes his 'status' as a drone.

    The Twins very much could be 'adolescent' transformers. And the Ice cream truck was a combined form due to thier smaller size. As they 'grow up' they become large enough for bigger alt forms like a hermit crab needing a new shell.

    It isn't that absurd to think int his new incarnation of Transformers that there are children and they have to learn and grow. I think part of the 'bringing things to life' is the bots have no experience and are wild and have to be taught and learn to be full-fledged transformers. But then I guess Bumblebee is a baby-killer then :D

    Don't think the twins are gonna get any bigger than they are. Have heard somewhere that their about the same age as Sideswipe. So size doesn't really come into play.

    That is pure win Grimlock.

    But yes, they are kids.

    The Twins are not black nor are they white. They're robots who act like white people trying to be black.

    Jazz, Arcee, Chromia, Moonracer, Barricade, and Ravage called. They want a word.

    Hah, wow. Look at how fast this thread turned from a valid concept to be explored into a pile of troll posts.

    Apparently, the other forum was more mature OP. Perhaps it'd have been better to remain posting there. ;)

    Well to be fair, in the TF1 Prequel Novel Jazz was stated as being younger than all the other movie bots, including BB.
    As for the Bike sisters, I got nothing.
    Ravage is a minion/drone, so I guess he can be whatever the hell he needs to be, *shrugs*.
    Barricade is about the same size as BB and there's nothing to state he's really young or old...*shrugs again*.
    So yeah, I got nothing other than Jazz, LOL.

    But really I don't think age and size have any real relation at all in the movieverse. The movie bots just need to scan something around their general size and/or mass to maintain their forms. They are each built for different purposes or modify themselves for different/certain choices/functions. I do see the Twins as being way younger than anyone else though by their personalities and demeanors.

    Wow, guys, real mature. Did you all shut your brains off before you posted? I'm not seeing how General lMagnus' is absurd in the least.

    Yeah, I can see Skids and Mudflap being the example of Child Soldiers. They certainly acted like it. However, I don't see them getting any bigger than already are. Transformers don't strike me as the kind that grow in the way a Human might.

    I can't believe any of you are seriously devoting 5 seconds of thought to this concept. Ho-lee shiiiit.

    Jesus I never knew that... I just saw he was second in command of the Autobots on Earth in TF1 and presumed that he was a bit older than them (also he's seen in a position of seniority in the RotF prequel material back on Cybertron in the Defiance series I believe it was).

    Oh well, live and learn.

    I wouldn't call them child soldiers as I saw them being more like teenagers at least older than fifteen if compared to us. Historically, plenty of teenagers have fought for their countries. Now when I think of child soldiers, I think of African warlords using children 14 and younger. So no, not child soldiers.

    SMKSpy has a point. Especially in that movie Blood Diamond. I couldn't give a shit if they were five, if they were pointing something that could end my life in a second directly at me, someone's getting a beat down.

    So yes, they are kids at heart, or spark in this case. They're young and clumsy. i'm pretty sure many of you were like that no offense to anyone who wasn't. When you're young you do stupid things, and thats what Mudflap and Skids do. Though they kicked the ass of the largest Decepticon in the movie-verse continuity.
