could blackout become vortex in the future?
What does "become" mean?
Blackout was soundwave, so no, he cannot become Vortex in the future, he would become Soundblaster.
i got it... my reason for the post blackout reminds me of vortex
Yea, technically, I think Blackout is Vortex. Similar type of helicopter, same color scheme. So yea; Vortex. Maybe they couldn't get the rights to his old name and decided to rename him.
Blackout was called Vortex once wasn't he?
He's had a million names. Grimlock, Soundwave, Incinerator...
no, he was never grimlock, but yes he was previously both soundwave and vortex
He was Grimlock; when they decided not to go with Soundwave and needed a placeholder name until they found something else. He was called Grimlock in the very first leaked script.
I beleive it was me who stated that is who I thought it was and shootfortheedit.com had also posted that was his name. Same thing with the brawl and barricade mixup we had a few months back.
But no he wont be a vortex, if they wanted more cons they will probably all have different alt modes....although I do see a vortex as maqybe a placeholder for number 2 or even a smaller con
check this out the cobra!
im pretty sure blackout is blackout, and stays that way. especially because (SPOILERS)
he gets his ass walloped in the end of the movie/gets destroyed.
He indeed reminds me of Vortex due to the color scheme.
found on this from seibertron i was right about blackout being vortex The Transformer formerly known as Vortex
I would have liked them to have named him Vortex, mainly to eliminate one of the Decepticon names that start with 'B' (seriously, it's kinda retarded to have so many 'B' names). But I really wish they'd have kept the name Soundwave...Blackout's head is a spot on update of G1 Soundwave.
Doubt it. They probably won't bring characters back to life in the movie, much less change their names.
never looked at it that way
Blackout was Vortex, he was also Soundwave, Incinerator and apparently Grimlock. But his original design intent, in both form, function and character, was to be Soundwave, but the film makers changed his name after a test panel at a convention disliked the 3d test model they showed as soundwave when the movie was first being developed. Lo and behold, about 2 years later, we get this *very* awesome robot who is clearly based off of Soundwave in every way, but is named after a highly unknown g1 bot.
On topic though, Blackout and Vortex, other then being helicoptors, have very little in common. The helicoptor Blackout is didn't exist when Vortex was first created so no, they don't share the same alt mode. Plus, we already have a combaticon in the mix, personnally I would rather Barricade have his name changed to Dead End so we could have one of each of the three initial 'con combiner teams. But we got what we got, and what we got is awesome so no real complaints here.
Bonescrusher, Brawl, Blackout, Barricade, Bmegatron...wait...
Robots would be easy to bring back for the movies look at terminator. We might see a guy come back. I personally want a devestator vs the dino bots fight in the second one.
I thought it was Frenzy that was sloted to be soundwave, not Blackout.
I thought that Barricade was Soundwave cause frenzy came out of his chest.
Separate names with a comma.
