    Please delete if this has already been discussed.

    The twins are absolutely in the movie. You see them in vehicle mode for a second or two when the Autobots are rolling back into base after the scene in Russia. They're at the very end of the convoy but once you know where to look you see them clear as day. I think they were filmed with the rest of the bots for that scene and then scenes with them were edited when the characters got axed.

    So Mr. Bay, where's my 25,000?

    Maybe Mr Bay will pay out $1 each to the alert 25,000 viewers who saw Skids and Mudflap in the movie.

    This is the same man who swore up and down that Megatron would not be in ROTF.

    You honestly think he's going to cough up so much as a cent?

    We can all send him a letter with our home addresses for those cheques. Or perhaps he prefers to directly deposit the money. :)

    Yeah I know we'll never get our money, but it does feel good as a fandom to be right.

    You know it all depends on how 'The Twins" are defined. Technically, you saw 2 Chevy cars, not the twins. I am not saying it's right, I am just saying.

    Random vehicles in an autobot convoy that are colored as the twins. Classy

    Civilian vehicles. I didn't see the twins in the movie at all. Post some screen caps from the movie (not the trailers) and maybe I can agree. (C'Mon c'mon do it, do it, ban hammer comin, do it!) lol






    /note to TFW2005 legal. I am not promoting the illegal download or distribution of the motion picture.

    I just got home from the movie and was about to make my own thread about the same thing just now and ask what my prize was... LOL!

    I thought I saw them at the end of the convoy as well, after they rolled into the "headquarters" though. I only saw them on the inside, not on the outside.

    It looked to me that Mudflap was at the end of the line, and Skids was right in front of him. I could be wrong though because it all happened very quickly.

    As other people have already mentioned Micheal Bay can just use the excuse of them being just nameless background Chevy Autobots.

    By the way I still see no point in removing them because of the whole racial thing. I mean look at Wheelie, he sounds like an Italian ganster, sort of like Joe Pesci. His sidekick also had a racial vibe going to him. Some of the other characters did as well.

    I'm also wondering if he originally had the Wreckers sounding like "Rednecks" and then changed them to accents from the UK, like Aussies or Brittish.

    Doesn't matter if you saw vehicles that may or may not have been the twins, they never appear on screen in their robot modes, are never named or referenced, so really..they were non-entities in this film.

    Since when did he state that he would do it in a legally binding manner?

    Who cares, the real question is, why WEREN'T they in the movie? No explanation as to where they went, as they were quite prominent if not lamented characters in the last movie.


    Maybe they went to the same place Barricade went to in ROTF.

    That fact that their toys are called skids and mudflap pretty make it a moot point.

    Skids and Mudflap are visible in the film, specifically in the same "entering the hangar" shot used in the trailer. Yup, despite claims that Bay would digitally alter that shot, they're still there.

    Problem is that Bay stipulated in the press release that the twins had to be "performing" in order to validate the 25K claim. Meaning they need to be robots.

    The fact that the toys are just toys and don't necessarily mean anything in the context of the film makes that a moot point.

    The fact that they are established in the second film as robot character with specific alt modes, that appear in DOTM make your point moot.

    That is like saying that every time we saw a Peterbuilt truck with flames on screen it wasn't Optimus, unless he transformed.

    Must have been his brother...

    They were very much in the novel, and both were killed off by SP
