    Tom DeSanto mentioned that the original Autobots that were going to do in the first movie were Optimus Prime, Arcee, Jazz, Ironhide, Prowl, Ratchet, Wheeljack and Bumblebee. But then that idea was scrapped and the first movie were Optimus, Bumblebee, Jazz, Ironhide and Ratchet. In the second movie Arcee was introduced. Do you think in the third movie they will consider Wheeljack and Prowl?

    that wouldnt surprise me. red ferrari could be prowl and not hot rod although the whole police car thing might make that impossible and the fact barricade already had that mode. and the mercedes being wheeljack is pretty obvious with the scientist look we saw. Im also starting to think bumblebee is the rodimus of this continuity. I can see him stepping up if optimus goes down

    Nah im sure the autobots would like someone who could actually vocalize his own thoughts...not just spurt out borrowed speaches and what not.. not a very inspiring leader.....

    I think they should have kept Wheeljack in movie one. The one thing the team was missing in the movie was an inventer/scientist/smart guy and it would have been cool if he could have had more of a role than the other shafted characters like Ironhide, Ratchet, and Jazz

    I think Ratchet filled that role of smart guy pretty well really. Especially how he used his robot senses to give Mikaela a giant cock block to use on sam.

    Wheeljack would be a good addition to TF3... Prowl on the other hand, I feel has less of a chance making it in. We already had one police car character, and I'm sure the filmmakers wouldn't want confusion over them.

    There's no doubt in my mind that Einsteinbot is Wheeljack.

    I don't think we're going to be getting Prowl either. I'm disapponted that we still haven't since he's always been my favorite Autobot. Oh well, there's always the reboot/next franchise.

    I think the fire truck is Prowl, did'nt Nelson say the fire truck would split fans (or something along that line) because it was different to original characters mode?

    prowl was in Defiance, and he wasnt as tall a prime, so unless his design is redone then no prowl, not to mention that doesnt seem like a "Prowl-y" Alt mode.

    he might be the Ferrari, MIGHT, but its doubtful.

    I REALLY want Wheeljack in the movie but I REALLY hope it's not the Einstein bot. That face is hideous. Maybe it'll look better in CGI.

    Going to have to disagree with you; I did not feel these three were shafted at all in the first movie. Especially considering they arrive halfway through, I think they all get plenty to do in both dialogue and action (maybe Jazz gets the short end, but he still had a dozen or so lines). Now, if you are referring to ROTF, then I completely agree.
