    Hey dudes Jimmy from Autobot City. I had a discovery while watching Revenge last weekend. I always thought that it was blackout in Revenge and not Grindor or who ever they say it was. I might have even come across another piece of evidence. When the Cons were diving to recover Megs the Sub commander said there were 5 enemy contacts diving and diving fast. To revive Megs they ripped off Scrappers legs and killed him. Following Megs revival the commander said there were 6 contacts. Now there had to be another revival since Scrapper was killed reducing the enemies to 4. Now I know that everyone including people close to Bay say it was Grindor, but I really think that its Blackout revived. Why confuse and complicate the issue. Let me know if someone brought this up before and what you think dudes:)

    Keep thinking all you want, it ain't true. It's been confirmed TIME AND TIME AGAIN that he was Grindor. You're not the first person to speculate this, either.

    Blackout was in TF1
    Grindor was in TF2

    There is no further discussion.

    I can fix all this:

    Blackout was the "sixth" body rising from the sea as he was fixed alongside Megatron by Scalpel. He renamed himself "Grindor" to commemerate his new form.

    And then promptly got killed by Prime ripping his face.

    It's a different Con. Prime is the same highth as Megatron, and Blackout is the same highth as Megatron. Prime's small compared to GRINDOR.

    Going down:
    1. Rampage
    2. Scrapmetal
    3. Mixmaster
    4. Long Haul
    5. Ravage

    Ravage deploys Scalpel. Scrapmetal is killed. Megatron is rebuilt.

    Coming up:
    1. Megatron
    2. Ravage
    3. Rampage
    4. Mixmaster
    5. Long Haul
    6. Scalpel (presumably didn't go back into Ravage)

    There, Blackout is not required for the equation. Plus, Hasbro themselves has said that Grindor's different from Blackout. It's a closed case, peoples.

    I could see that happening but the being scrapped on the idea board and thus the Grindor/Blackout confusion.

    It was Grindor. Not Blackout. The reading of six contacts was just to add suspense to Megatron's return.

    I guess that could kinda be used to fill a plot hole...

    But I have to agree, it was Grindor, not Blackout

    Wasn't it stated early in the early draft they didn't kill a Constructicon they used Brawls parts to make Megatron a tank. It was changed after the scene was filmed that a Constucticon was killed, so that 6th dot would have been that dead Constructiocn; but wasn't this error removed from the DVD release?

    Nope. Don't think so. But I'm too lazy to pop ROTF in the DVD player to verify:lol
