    I'm not following what your getting at. Seen much faster vehicles?

    BTW I'm a huge NASCAR fan and I love how the Wreckers were portrayed.

    Bay stated once that he never really liked Jazz to begin with :(  The twins just got too much negativity towards them on the count of people thinking they were racist. That's why I believe these guys never got their well deserved time to shine. the wreckers could have gotten more screen time because they were good characters, que, he was a good one too but i think the reason they didn't get much screen time was because all the action was centered around the main characters being Prime, Bee and the occasional humans.

    maybe if you slowed down, and formed complete sentences and such, people would understand you.

    ^This.

    If you could put together a simple sentence, people would know what you're trying to say.

    though there is a possibility that they may be NASCAR fans, judging by their alt modes, they were DEFINITELY not stereotyped American NASCAR lovers; they had Australian accents... not American..... NASCAR fan stereotypes, just so you know, are usually American rednecks with country accents (trust me, I know, I live in Alabama) no offense to anyone though haha

    As a science guy myself it's almost offensive you don't put in the effort and thought to write proper sentences and made clear your thoughts...

    ALL OF THIS.

    Actually, Roadbuster had kind of an Irish accent, and Leadfoot had a British one. Topspin may have had the most amazing accent ever, but since he never spoke, we will never know.

    I'm sure there's some punctuation in that OP, but where?


    I have no idea what the OP is going for. Maybe all those characters are same because they're based in stereotypes and archetypes, or because they received very little characterization beyond that? Other than that, no, I'd say it's more of a "Bay's style" issue than a conscious decision to repeat himself. Also, given that the Wreckers were low-class UK stereotypes, I don't think it was a swipe at American NASCAR fans (I dont know WHY they chose those characterizations for those forms though).

    Also, there are to my knowledge no known vehicles in the Bayverse that can travel faster than the speed of light, but there are ways of warping or distorting space for the purpose of travel, such as the "space bridge".


    And kid, when people don't understand you, it's probably not because you're using language that's too scientifically complex.

    British and Scottish accents, actually.

    Apparently there was a scene that was cut early in development where they were supposed to scan their forms on a NASCAR track, or something of that nature.

    Ugh, don't remind me. That would've been the most epic scene ever. And they were already filming in Florida and the biggest NASCAR race of the year takes place in Florida...

    Jazz, Twins, Jolt, all vanished for completely different reasons, actually.

    Jazz was because [supposedly] he never died before in the franchise [remember, 2007, before Animated Jazz died] and they needed someone to kill off to add some impact to the ending. So he was the choice.

    Jolt was because he was barely in the movie at all, there was really no reason to carry him other than continuity.

    Twins were due the absurd amount of criticism the characters received [being compared to Jar Jar Binks means you really dropped the ball here].

    The Wreckers, however, probably will be there. Being NASCARs with a healthy dose of screen-time.

    What? I'm not sure what you're getting at here. Are you referring to stereotypes? Alt modes? Killing off characters?
