    In the first Transformer movie, we had BlackOut whom I think was a BlackHawlk helicopter?

    My question is, what other Decepticons were there that were bad-ass helicopters? Cause I think for TF3, or 4 for that matter, there should be the menacing Hind Mi 24. That thing would be a sweet-ass Decepticon chopper!

    Blackout wasn't a Blackhawk -- he was a MH-53 Pave Low.

    Then we have Grindor in ROTF -- he was a CH-53E Super Stallion heavy-lift helicopter.

    I have no idea what a Hind Mi 23 copter looks like, but I'm not quite sure if I want another helicopter-transforming Decepticon... especially if they reuse parts of the CGI used to create Blackout and Grindor for his robot mode.

    What the...??!! Are you kidding me? We need MORE Decepticon helicopters (enough with the jets). As for MI-24, that thing is an ICON, I can't believe you don't know how it looks. Stupid Rambo 3 and it's MI-24 wannabee Super Puma. You go stand in a corner with a DUNCE hat...NAO! ;) 

    Oh, almost forgot MI-24 (NATO name HIND, russian name Crocodile)

    Wait, Grindor had his own alt mode? I thought he was just a simple repaint.

    I think if there's another chopper, they should go for Spinister. Because that name is so damned goofy.

    Yep, that's the helicopter in question. And man it already look's like a Decepticon, just sitting there. Probably one of the meanest looking birds period! What would his name be?

    This helicopter was also featured in the movie The Hitman where they hovered in front of a building the guy was hiding in and shot the room to bit's.

    Aren't those names already used? This bird would need a new name all to his own!

    No. Spinster was used for a Legends Blackout/Grindor repaint in some exclusive 4-pack in the UK I think, and name usage for not-in-the-actual-movie figures is ignored by the script writers usually (that's why there's the Movie 1 Mudflap as a G1 Erector-colored mobile crane of Decepticon alligence and ROTF Mudflap who is totally different and an Autobot). Battletrap is even more obscure, relatively speaking, since it was only used once for the G1 Duocon, and he was more or less half-helicopter at that (the body was actually a Ford F-150).

    Plus, if TF3 did have a new Helicopter in it, odds are that it WILL be a name that was used before. Hasbro has gotten into the tendency to re-use names as opposed to coming up with new ones when they can. That's why in the Movie toy line, the only TF's with new names (as in never used for a previous TF in the past 25+ years) are the not-in-movie figures such as Stratosphere and Salvage.

    He was. The Super Stallion is just an upsized Pav Low sans the radar probe.

    Isn't "Blitz" sort of a German word and there for wouldn't fit for a Russian helicopter?

    disappointingly, crosshairs makes it onto the top five decepticon helicopters.

    it's not a very well appointed list (although it's worth pointing out that his helicopter altmode is actually really ratehr good as these things go ;) )

    ANyone fans of Apaches? I've been dying to see one of these in Bay's live action franchise, as a Decepticon really, but if it's an Autobot, well that's ok I guess..(AH-64 Apache)
