"Brains's alternate mode is a laptop computer (Lenovo ThinkPad Edge). This is a tribute to the Autobot Blaster, who took the alternate mode of a laptop (Toshiba Satellite Qosmio); Brains also pays homage to Blaster's minion Rewind when he tells Director Mearing he knows all about the solar system (Rewind is known for spouting useless trivia)." Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) - Trivia - IMDb It sounds reasonably accurate to me. Anyway, maybe they SHOULD have cast Blaster in DOTM, an ethically faithful character similar to Jazz would have probably smoothed things a bit (instead of some original characters who come in for immediate flak). But instead he could be more hardcore: have him do the stuff Frenzy did like sneaking into classified areas, hacking info and doing ninja stuff. What do you think?
