    Jk. I really just wanted to say that Grindor's name isn't very important, so we can all pretend that Blackout is magically revived even though there aren't any Allspark shards remaining to do the deed. This especially goes if you're particularly a fan of Blackout.

    This is funny as was explaining the whole deal about Blackout/Grindor to my roomate after watching some of the new game footage. He decided that he'll just think of the character as Blackout in the movie and just leave it at that.

    I think Grindor (Horrible name. Why not Vortex?) a different character. Blackout, no matter how awesome he is, is dead. Remebember Lennox blew up his robo-balls. There are no more AllSpark fragments. In "Reign of Starscream" Thundercracker & Starscream shared the same basic body on Cybertron. Why can't Blackout and Grindor?

    I'm (particularly) a fan of Blackout. That said, I'm happy with his death in the first movie and I'm glad it wasn't undone. I think that that makes for better storytelling, and an appreciation for the character doesn't get in the way of that. Grindor's name doesn't matter (as I don't think he's named in the movie, so it may have come about merely as something to put on toy packaging. I would have gone with Vortex, as the name SUCKS), but it does matter that he's not and cannot be Blackout. I also thinking 'pretending' something that's demonstrably not true because it makes you feel better is, um, kinda weak. Accept the story for what it is.

    Grindor really sounds like a He-Man character too.

    No, Grindor sounds more like a Gobot.

    Hush, woman! Jk. I'm not like... adamant or anything. It's just a suggestion. The whole bagel doesn't really bother me at all.
