    I have noticed that the toys for this characters fit in the original plot, so it would be logical to include them in TF2, but why would they keep them out i wonder.

    They would keep them out because they already made toys for them. Why make a film and put them in it when the product has already come and gone?

    Read the comics, Landmine and Longarm are human made transformers via assistance from Wreckage.

    Stockade played a slightly larger role in Reign of Starscream, as a sort of project head on construction the second Allspark.

    They might have been worried about the Mortal Komat 2 the movie effect. From a fan point of view the more character the better, but then if you put too many characters into a movie instead of cool it just becomes a confusing mess.

    So for a film maker there is always going to the tough call of just how many characters to put in to make the most people happy without going overboard and making almost no one happy. If the characters aren't in the movie then it could be there just wasn't room and nothing more than that.

    i don't think those twins would be in it because no one would pay attention to the Transformers, not that it wouldn't pull a huge crowd

    The main reason why any character whould not be in the movie is because Director bay did not want them in the movie.
