    Either it's a mistake (which is possible) or confirms what we've suspected but have yet to see....Skids and Mudflap apparently do combine into a bigger robot.

    Hmm.

    Cool breakdown. I'm gonna have to quit reading this stuff to prevent being too spoiled.

    Interesting that they state it's seven Constructicons that make up Devastator rather than six.

    Though I do think it's quite possible Prime could be killed off toward the end, I don't think the Peterbilt not being on location for the final scene (or Sam yelling his name, which is in a completely different location when he yells it) has anything to do with that necessarily. They could just CGI the truck in if the need it, it's unknown if Prime would need to be in vehicle mode much (if at all) in the desert scenes, and I'd imagine it'd be cheaper to place the truck in any scene via special effects rather than having to ship/fly a Peterbilt all the way out to Egypt just for a few scenes. A Camaro or the other smaller vehicles would be much easier and I'd think less costly/annoying to transport.

    Maybe Wheelie can become a Headmaster and the Twins can combine with him to become Retardabot.

    Twins DO have a 'bot mode? I'm wondering if that is correct... If Orci or Bay was being quoted as saying this that'd be something different, but with Empire just producing these tidbits unclaimed I'm not 100% sure it's not the result of them just googling ROTF, picking a fan theory, and throwing it in without ever assuming it might not be factual.

    I think the same for when they said Arcee can split into three separate robots. Really? How do we know they're not wrong?

    WHAT. Is this Empire just spitballing?

    hmmm..Empire saying Optimus Prime dies before Egypt???...I sure hope not, and I'm still a little skeptical. I don't see how he's gonna fight devestator and combine with Jetfire if he's dead.

    so far
    we found unknown connection port on Chromia,it's nothing with Chromia transform,so we assume it's for combination.although there is no combine mentioned in backboard and instruction in Chormia package,but maybe it will be revealed in the main part?

    but we didn't found any sign of combine at deluxe skids/mudflap or wheelie......

    Impossible. We see Prime's badly battered body (with head held high and the "Fate" comment) in front of ruined homes, much like the ones Sam and Mikaela are running across in the one scene where they're being chased by what looks like a Constructicon.

    If anything, he'd die *during* the Egypt scene.

    They don't need the Peterbilt there if Prime is in robot mode the entire time in the final scene, combined with Jetfire. I'm not sure if this is the case, but who knows.

    I swear, if Prime dies I'll bawl like a baby. Seriously. I still get choked up when ever I watch the animated one.

    I do recall the actual service men stating they were guarding Prime's body. Some of us took that to mean corpse, but it could literally mean they were protecting him. My guess is after Megatron, Starscream, and Blackout beat the living shit out of him, he's most likely unconscious. (That might explain the scene where he raises his head up)

    Maybe it's just info released to get people talking, I hope Optimus dosen't kick the rust bucket.

    There is a kids book being released called The Last Prime...maybe b/c Optimus dosen't have anyone else to hand over leadership to.

    Optimus no need to drive himself there to Cairo....
    He got Strastospeher to transport him
    Or combine with Jetfire and fly there....

    Nowadays driving is too slow...


    But thats doesnt mean he wont die.....
