I really hope they don't ignore Sideswipe and Jolts existence in TF3

    They were two awesomely designed characters, and we should be able to see there true potential and some much needed characterization.

    I just want Jolt to talk, maybe they might explain why Jolt didn't talk in the first movie, maybe he was still receiving the languages from the internet?

    Sideswipe kicked ass, I know what you mean. Thankfully, Ironhide got decent bit in the second one, and he was already in teh first movie.

    I certainly hope that they return for TF3 and get the screentime they deserve.

    The sisters (assuming they survived) should get better characterizations as well. As for the twins, either kill them off, or just give them a small cameo or something.

    I agree with you. Both Sideswipe and Jolt should have better character and talk a bit more. I want those two crazy bots back!

    I agree 100% on Sideswipe. His opening scene was epic and he deserves more action time. As for Jolt, I didn't even realize he was in the movie until I saw it the second time. I'd welcome more development time for him, but I won't be to upset if nothing happens.

    Someone mentioned the Twins as well. I personally liked the Twins in ROTF. I'd love to see them back as more than just background characters, but to balance out some of the hate they carried, maybe they can tone it down a bit.

    What about Barricade? Let's bring him back!

    And no, it doesn't matter if the comics explained it or not, you shouldn't have to read supplementary material to tie up blaring loose ends that could've been tied with a simple line of dialogue, or text on a screen.

    I'm hoping that what happened to Ironhide's and Ratchet's screen time between TF1 and TF2 will happen to Sideswipe and Jolt.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we no sign of Jolt in TF3. He was a last minute addition to the film. At most, he'll probably be a background character again.
    It'd be nice if we get more of Sideswipe, though. Maybe in an actual fight scene with a Decepticon. That'd be nice.

    I hope not. Even as background characters, they'd be too much for most people. As much as I didn't mind them, I've come to recognize that they're just too taboo for the mainstream media. If they're in TF3, it's pretty much doomed for the same level of PC drama that ROTF got.

    I still want to smash someone's face for not putting Sideswipe and Arcee in with the Bumblebee group.

    I think Jolt MIGHT get a significant amount of screen time, especially since GM will be wanting to advertise the Volt which will be in production by then. As for Sideswipe, I hope he's in it ALOT. I want my Sideswipe battle scene!

    I won't mind the Twins, I didn't mind them in ROTF either. Maybe they'll respond to the critisism and mature them up a bit.

    Perhaps they'll disappear into the netherworld like Barricade did.

    If that has to happen again I vote for the Twins, though.

    I'm betting that they will be shoved aside for the newer characters. And Bumblebee.

    Yeah, I liked Rotf, but seeing the new characters get little screentime was a big letdown.
