    Not to be mean or anything but I really really really really hope that Lugnut does not show up in the live action films. I like the character but Decepticons only show up to get killed without showing any personality so just keep them to characters I've never heard of or care about.

    I wouldn't mind Lugnut showing up in Transformers Prime since he'd likely live and get plenty of character, but I don't want him near the films. Well other than the toy that is coming out because it looks pretty darn cool.

    How? He's asking, which is what the title says.

    I don't think he should put in Lugnut. I would like him to stay in Animated for the time being. Too much hype could be bad and disappointing in the end. Maybe in the reboot.

    How is hype ever a bad thing for a Transformers character who isn't Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream, or Soundwave?

    Yeah, I'd keep Lugnut away from the films. Lugnut was the funniest Decepticon besides Blitzwing or Starscream, and had great, thick headed, Megatron-worshipping character. In the films he'll just be more cannon fodder for the Autobots or humans to kill.

    Let him be in TF: Prime, more Animated then his movie toy with his design.

    If Lugnut gets movie exposure, then he's more likely to get exposure in future series.

    Doubt it. Otherwise we wouldn't be seeing the new Voyager already. They'd probably wait to do a Lugnut for the movie line, instead of two Lugnuts in one year.

    Hype that leads to something disappointing, i.e. - Devastator.

    That isn't the point. If he's in the movie, then he remains fresh in the minds of those making the shows, figures, or video games.

    I don't think Lugnut will be in TF3.

    The last TF3 movie will most likely have all generation one characters robots in it. as it's the last one & is kinda special due to that.

    :lol 

    Like hell it is. Skids and Mudflap ARE still around, y'know, and neither of those two were in G1.

    Or Wheelie, as we have been told he's comming back too.

    Well, yeah, but movie Wheelie is nothing like G1 Wheelie outside of name reuse. Same goes for Skids, since G1 Skids probably could read.

    I really like Lugnut, but as others have said, if he was in the movie he'd be promptly exploded. I'd prefer if he was homaged in TF: Prime or WFC 2.

    This may seem out of topic, but as anybody considered repainting ROTF Voyager Stratosphere in the colors of Animated or RTS Voyager Lugnut. :inquisiti 

    As for his head, one could either remold ROTF Voyager Stratosphere's head to make it look more like Animated or RTS Voyager Lugnut's head.
