    I just remembered this. So when I was watching this on DVD a few weeks ago I suddenly thought 'hang on, how many Autobots?' I haven't come across this as a discussion.

    Let's count who was there at the time.

    1) Optimus
    2) Ratchet
    3) Leadfoot
    4) Topspin
    5) Roadbuster
    6) Sideswipe
    7) Que
    8) Mirage
    9) Bumblebee

    Maybe counting

    10) Wheelie
    11) Brains
    12) Skids
    13) Mudflap

    The twins were edited out but we don't know when this was planned. This may have been during or after filming. Either way the counting is off ¬__¬

    The twins would've been killed by this point so it's just Wheelie and Brains left out.

    to solve a DAMN thing..."

    Ironhide's dead, Skids and Mudflap aren't in the film but would've been dead by that point anyway, so the only anomalous leftovers are Wheelie and Brains, who seem almost actively ignored by everyone in the film. Nine.

    Ironhide wasn't there he was dead. They sure missed counting Brains and Wheelie though.

    ^This.

    That's why in the last seen with Wheelie and Brains in the mothership mattered so much.

    well i guess wheelie and brains were left out, because
    if they were the only ones who stayed...they wouldnt
    have been much of a big help at all. lol aww :(  thats kinda
    rude to say though because they came around and
    sacrificed themselves to destroy the ship.

    Who hand with Sam? Wheelie defected so he's not and I doubt that NEST would know otherwise they would be dead.

    The films do seem to consider Brains and Wheelie as still being Decepticons despite their rejection of the faction. They don't seem to actually be official Autobots.

    Wheelie and Brains are Transformers who are not considered members of the Autobots. They align themselves with the Autobots, but they are not members.

    I don't think Simmons knew about Wheelie and Brains.

    ^^ also on that note I took them as being considered neutrals. In other words staying with the Autobots and their affiliates but not being an active part of everything going on, at least until they decided to take on bringing down the main ship.

    He must have known about Brains because when they were in Sam's apartment, the computer they were using was Brains and he transformed right there in front of everyone.

    I mean he didn't know they were getting exiled as well. He likely assumed it was just the actual autobots.
