    I've heard a lot of rumours that the 3 Wreckers are going to be Redneck like. Now seeing them I can see the Redneckishness:

    Roadbuster: Trucker hat

    Topspin: Long shaggy hair

    Leadfoot: Beard and Beer Belly


    Imagine them driving with there shot guns, and they are told to fix ships, Think of it as Rednecks fixing there pick up truck.

    Even if you are completely accurate, I can't wait for everyone spouting on about how CGI characters are racist. Or something equally stupid like that.

    While they look "redneck-ish", everything we've heard about their personalities points to the opposite. Especially with Leadfoot, who's supposed to be quite smart, and G1 Wheeljack-like in certain regards. Though they could be kinda like Grimlock, in that they're smart, but their vocabulary is simple and sorta redneck-ish.

    We'll just have to wait and see. Either way I doubt they'll get much characterization int he movie anyways.

    You forgot the sunglass like visors on all 3 of them. Roadbuster apparently has a goatee thing going on too.
    I hope we get to see a decent amount of the Wreckers in action, there has been so much hype created around them and I just hope they can live up to it!:rock

    Meh, the Constructicons in Animated were stereotypical construction workers, complete with butt cracks. Don't see any harm with redneck Wreckers.

    I really don't care if they come of as stereotypes. Almost every movie has them one way or another. So why can't some robots follow the same pattern. People will laugh regardless and that's the point.

    aren`t the twins already redneck stereotypes? Or were they black gansta stereotypes? Oh I don`t know, CGI racism is so confusing!!

    Anyway, in movies like these, where characters aren`t given much character developement, stereotypes are a good way of giving a character some identity fast, so who cares! So long as they`re not total tits!

    Oh! Maybe they`ll be like the Devil Rejects family!!!

    You're very right. Every movie does have them. Yet, for some reason when Micheal Bay does it, it's a racist hate crime. Even when the characters don't really exist.

    This is why I don't get why people have a problem with it when the people who are "being made fun of" don't have a problem with it. Bigkid has the right idea, go along with the joke.

    People should stick to what offends them and let other people speak out if they're offended. Don't try to be politically correct or overly anti-racist that you cross over into other people's business.

    Sorry, pet-peeve of mine. :2c:  :D

    I remember the last time we all thought a pair of bots looked like rednecks.

    Everyone else called them racist caricatures of black people....

    I wasn't saying they are racist, even if they are I don't look forward to them taunting Epps.

    All the dialogue snippets so far have the blue one speaking in an angry Brit voice.

    Am I the only one to see topspin as wearing a metal "judge wig" not a mullet?
