    ...... Be weapons for NEST soldiers or other autobots? They could scan weapons and transform into them and cold be used as guns against decepticons.

    Given their portrayals and What happened to them... Not likely.

    Both are built around infiltration and information gathering.

    Compared to Frenzy and Laserbeak hardly armed. Though Brains had a cute gun surrendering it to NEST security.

    Literal weapons, as in transforming in guns like a Targetmaster? No. For one, Wheelie clearly transforms into an RC monster truck, as we saw him do in ROTF.

    Figurative weapons, as in spies and covert agents? Yeah, that's a more likely scenario.

    I dont see why they couldnt. I mean, it doesnt matter that Wheelie was a RC car in the other movies, he could just scan something else like Lazerbeak did. Too bad they died...

    It's true, its not like the ship exploded or anything, heck that was pretty gentle for a giant spacecraft crashing.

    In the book they lived, and i dont see why they cant be guns, they could just scan one of the autobots weapons and id assume they'd be able to.

    I was wondering this myself. The ship didn't explode or anything just hit the ground hard. There is no way they could have died, it was just a rumble to them nothing else.

    This is true, I can't believe how many people think Wheelie and Brains died. Yeah, they SAID they were gonna die but it was more of a comic "Were gonna die!" The ship SPLASHED down in water and DIDN'T explode. They should still be alive.

    This could've been Bays way of telling the fans that yes, they died

    Sadly, I'm with you - they didn't come back for the "Hero's Welcome" ending scene...

    Plus Im guessing its best to assume they are dead. As much as I loved their characters and roles in the film, I highly doubt they will be in or even mentioned in the 4th one.
