    My mistake. Don't check the movie forum that often. Mods can close.

    Considering Nelson lied before about DoTM spending so much money I can't really trust this information.

    This outright lying about the Twins makes me hopeful that Jolt will actually be in the movie.

    I really don't get all the Twins stuff... what is the point in transporting them around the place if they aren't being used... He's not tried that sort of deception before... so why now?

    From what I get it was an editing bay decision to cut them. And for the transporting them around, they move all the vehicles around even if not used. Ironhide went everywhere but was hardly used at all.

    What I get from this is the Twins were in the original script, were filmed, but for whatever reason Bay cut them in post. Now, based on what Nelson is saying, that can mean two things.

    1. The cars themselves will be edited out of whatever scenes they are in.

    2. The cars will be the alt modes of two different characters.

    Well the Twins not being in DOTM is obviously total bullsh*t, but the einstein bot and wheelie thing does capture my curiosity.

    I'm taking the "no twins" thing with a grain of salt. The cars were clearly on set and being filmed, and considering that they have new toys matching the new cars I doubt that the new cars are new characters. Maybe they did get edited out in the final cut, but we'll have to wait to see the film to really know for sure.

    As for Wheelie, I'll be happy to find out what he's been up to since his abrupt disappearance in RotF, or at the very least see him in the film again and not mysteriously vanished like Barricade.

    I thought that was Lester Speight, not Nelson, that did that.

    Well, I'll take this "info" like I have all the other "info" that Nelson has fed us about DotM, but this time with an even bigger grain of salt. There is absolutely no way the twins aren't in this movie.

    How are the Twins not in the movie? There's the black chevy spark with green racing stripes on set. We have a toy of that very car, and it's obviously Skids.

    Did you actually read his posts? Nelson stated that the Twins were in the original script, and the cars were filmed, but the characters were removed in post. He hints that the Sparks will be two new characters however.

    I know Nelson has been very wishy-washy with information, but he has been pretty straight up with this film. No Jolt, which so far is true unless he's all CGI. Denied all names for firetruck, which was correct. Gave us Rosie's character name. etc. I for one am going with what he says until the film proves me otherwise. Because even the novel or comic adaptation could be incorrect if the cut was last minute.

    the twins will be in, no way would they make figs of the twins with new vehicle modes, that'd piss off hasbro. Mis info, stupid stuff, should give us names so we'd be excited, we'll see the toys msonths before anyway as we've seen already, if more figs turn up it'll force the names to come out like SP

    The interesting thing here is that Nelson mentioned a Lautner movie... then says the Twins aren't in this movie....is he talking about the Lautner movie not having the twins or DotM?

    Dear god people get over that... People assumed that he WASN'T being sarcastic when he said that... I always assumed it was sarcasm, i mean it's kind of a stupid question, so he was proabably being sarcastic when giving that answer....

    Yep he's screwed us again with (as of now unseen) comedy! It's impossible that this could be any good at all.(SARCASM)

    Yep. Because Barricade had a toy come out in the first few ROTF waves. So he must have been in the movie somewhere, right? I mean hell, Hasbro has never made new molds for the movie lines of characters that were never in the movie! (MOAR SARCASM)

    No twins in the third movie?

    Nothing of value was lost.

    Though you'll forgive me if I'm wary of believing anything I read about the movie before its release. I would not put it past them to tell us things we want to hear. They know that ultimately most of us will see it regardless.
