    Assuming the "rumor" about the Ice Cream Truck reformatting into the BEAT is true, mayhaps the "twins" reformat into two seperate vehicles. That could be neat.

    And I have to agree with TriBlurr. I am almost sure of it that the Ice Cream Truck Twins will choose these new forms for an alt mode. Think about it, it sounds so logical. These two cars look almost the same. These 2 cars have to be the Twins.

    Interesting. Not sure if this will be a robot or not, but one thing I do know that is likely is that we'll probably see figures of it at some point in the line anyways. :D

    yea the cars look the same...so i'm guessing the rumor about the twins may be true after all....now the question is are they sunstreaker and sideswipe (one is already red and the other one is already flashy) or are they completely new characters that bay has dreamt up?

    Cool. The ice-cream truck brothers reformatting into these two cars seems likely, imo. Also, I personally think that they are new characters with new names, or at least with names reused for new personalities (kinda like Animated Sentinel Prime).

    Honestly, even if they do carry Sideswipe and Sunstreaker names they'll probably still be more along the lines of something either Bay or the writers dreamt up character wise (assuming they even get characterization).

    If those two vehicles are Sideswipe and Sunstreaker, then Bay's going right back on to my shitlist.

    On mine too! a green Sunstreaker! dont think i could handle that lol.

    Top spin and Twin twist would be pretty cool names for them though, hopefully we will find out who they are soon enough.

    That's if they are even Transformers. That supposedly-unused script treatment said Bumblebee and Sam started street racing when he got to college, so maybe these could be just other humans he's racing.

    The green Chevy Beat shows up in a few other scenes because maybe that's the car his room-mate drives...

    Just a theory, mainly because these cars are so ugly I don't want to accept them as Transformers, especially not as reformatted ice-cream brothers.

    I was looking back at the pictures for the Smithsonian car park shoot and i think you can see the Trax next to BB in oen of the Long range camera shots.. but it's too pixelated for me to be sure... I also think that the Trax is under covers behind a coverd BB from the same shoot.

    If i remember correctly didn't the callsheet say that Bee was talking with the twins during that scene?

    first off those two cars are ugly as hell so naturally i'd expect bay to make them tf's. if they do end up being swipe and streaker then it's just another epic failure.

    Those cars are cool, especially the green one. If they are TFs then I can't wait to see what their 'bot modes look like.

    Ha!

    Interesting enough, those cars are "brothers" in real life, they are based on the same plattform, and Chevy pulled a poll when they were introduced to decide which car was going to be produced. There was a third brother, the Chevy Groove which I believe was the the winner of the poll.

    You don't have to worry about that, their names are actually Ben and Jerry.
