    I think they were a cool concept, but I don't like the way they were done in the movie.


    1) I hate the weaponized Nascar modes - they look like piles of scrap metal on wheels to me. I think realistic ones would have been better. Plus, it ruined the whole concept of "robots in disguise."

    2) I wanted to see more Autobots that weren't cars. With Ironhide gone, there are way too many car Autobots now. I want some more variety!

    3) They were just sort of thrown in half-way through the film, and their introduction was dumb. "Yeah, there are three more Autobots on Earth, but we don't let them off Cape Canaveral because they're arseholes." Yes, that makes perfect sense.


    They did get some good action scenes, but I still say they could have been done better. What do you guys think?

    Totally agree, while I think they were one of the better aspects of the film there was a lot that could have made them better.

    Agree as well. I loved their accents and their "lets get some!" attitude, but different styles would be nice. Like for Leadfoot, he would look better as some sort of truck. Not sure what type, since I'm not an expert. But I would love to see ideas for him!

    Some sort of Ford, but one of the industrial ones, with the bulky back.

    Roadbuster could be some sort of off-roader, like a Toyota Hilux, or some sort of smaller SUV, maybe an actual impala modded to be an off-roader.

    Topspin? Topspin should be some sort of unaerodynamic vehicle, the kind that leaves wind in its wake.

    I loved the Wreckers. Wish they'd been in the film more.

    I liked them as NASCAR race cars, but they could've given Leadfoot a better design.

    I can take or leave them. I liked them, but they didn't make the movie for me or anything. If they're in the next one, cool. If they're not, I'm fine with that, too.

    I liked the Wreckers, but I agree that they could have been done better. I didn't like Leadfoot though. I mean, why make him a fat dude? No, that's just so humanoid. And a fat robot doesn't even make sense in the first place. I also expected to be a super awesome stealth commando that were only called when the situation was bad. I expected them to be sort of like Republic Commando. But it turns out it wasn't like that...

    I like them, and my feelings for them can be summed up with just about every single robot in the trilogy. They needed more screen time than any of the random pointless humans.

    Leadfoot's John DiMaggio's first role in TF fiction outside of a crappy video game.

    Of course I like them :lol

    I really like the Wreckers. The armored vehicle modes were really cool in my opinion.

    They're cool, but they shouldn't have been added into the movie. They're just more Autobots with too little screen time that don't really accomplish anything or get any material of significance.

    I think the Autobots cast should have stayed small - maybe just have added one in DOTM, instead of all the additions we ended up with.
