    Simple as that. Do you like the new paint jobs for Skids and Mudflap?

    Personally, I hate them. I've had enough of Transformers reformatting. It doesn't stay true to their character. I feel part of what makes a Transformer an individual is its alternate mode. If they are switching around all the time, it doesn't say much for their character.
    Not only that, Mudflap has become a virtual copy of Skids! It would be one thing if Mudflap was still a Trax, but now he just looks like Skids. Skids re-formatting slightly to fit the new Chevy Spark would be okay, but this is too much.
    In my opinion, the original paint jobs were better. I'm guessing these new black paint jobs might cause a bit of a stir if The Twins continue to behave "ghetto".

    No. I wasn't crazy about the original, but they were at least individual and characteristic. I'd prefer if they kept with variations on a theme like the changes they've made to Bumblebee over the movies.

    They should reinforce the decisions they already made to keeps things recognisable and iconic. I'm glad they haven't been messing around too much with their Optimus design, for example.

    I'm one of the biggest ROTF supporters out there, and I really didn't care for either mode of the Twins. But at the very least, their car mode looks a lot better for TF3 (assuming it is really the Twins, and not a Decepticon agent in disguise).

    Well.. we're not 100% that it actually is the twins yet.. It most likely is, but perhaps its just to mess around with us?
    Or 2 completely new characters..

    I don't give a damn about the Twins, but the black paint job I could get used to.

    I like it. As for reformatting, I don't mind. EVERY movie makes changes this is no different.

    I don't even see what's to like. Other than black being the new black. There's nothing unique or original about these paint jobs. It's just Stealth Bumblebee all over again.

    And always with the stripe. They might as well be yet another set of RPM repaints.

    The only chance I'll warm to these is if they now combine into one big bot, and it looks awesome.

    I voted no, IMO they will look just waaaay to similar both being so predominantly black with the stripe of color.

    If anything they should have went for the same model cars as they did(so they are twins) but inverted the colors where the one is predominantly green and the other orange and then just have the black stripe on them.

    Basically a paint job like bumblebee but with there respective colors.

    I guess what they're trying to do is make The Twins look more bad-ass (which I'll admit, this paint job does do). But, unless they're going to change the personality of the Twins more, I think that they should've stuck with the original colours.

    I like the new look, but it's yet to be confirmed if this will be for a selected scene, and will continue to be the same throughout the rest of the film.

    Bay likes to take care of the "money shots" first, before anything else in his fiLms.
