    1: He died in the novelization, courtesy of Starsceam.
    2: His voice actor died.
    3: The Autobots already have a stealth bot, Sideswipe.

    they could easily recast his actor if ferrari accepts

    4) If Ferrari chooses not to continue their relationship in this endeavor.
    5) If Hasbro decides the merchandising situation is too complicated or unprofitable to base further figures on Dino.

    Why have him in Tf4 anyway. He was useless. Also Sideswipe isn't a stealthy type...

    So in other words, Megatron will possibly be a supporting character in the fourth book yet he dies in the DOTM film.

    Sideswipe is kinda stealthy actually, that's one thing he's best at.

    He did nothing stealthy in the movies.

    No, being "flashy" and stylish is the one thing he's best at. Which is sort of the opposite of being stealthy.

    Also we have never even seen him fight 1-1 with anyone so he'snot that stylish and flashy.... I thought that was more of Jazz's personality?

    Ebay:
    Didn't know he died. Besides, its not like he was memorable enough that anyone else could do the voice. 99.9% of the audience would know anything was different.

    Yes we have. He fought Crowbar 1-1 before Ironhide rudely took away his victory.

    It took me a trip to TF Wiki 2 hours after seeing DOTM, to know that Sideswipe was re-casted.


    Didn't he use...Force? Eh? Eh?

    Francesco Quinn, an Italian-born actor and a son of Oscar winner Anthony Quinn, died Friday night of an apparent heart attack near his home in the La Costa neighborhood of Malibu. He was 48.

    Quinn was born March 22, 1963 in Rome, Italy to Anthony Quinn's second wife Iolanda. His acting career began in 1986 with a role in the Oscar-winning Oliver Stone film Platoon. He went on to appear in numerous films and television shows, including playing Tomas Del Cerro in the CBS soap opera Young and the Restless. For that role, Quinn was nominated for an American Latino Media Arts Award, which recognizes people who portray positive representations of Latinos.

    Hasbro had a hard enough time with Ferrari in TF3, with the death of his voice actor, they'll probably have him killed off in the comics.

    Waste of time since he was killed off in Ehren Kruger's version of TF3.

    Because he was entirely unmemorable and nobody is likely to even notice his absence.

    If it didn't happen on screen, it didn't happen in canon.
