    I like the e-Hobby Skids and Screech. Neat story, great colors on the G1 Skids/Crosscut mold.

    But that's as close I ever want to get to herp & derp.

    Well if those twins come back I'd have them not be Gangsters but rather two plucky youngsters who are eager to help but cause unintentional trouble at times. Skids can have his G1 color scheme with green stripes and is the more wiser of the two with a knack of science. Mudflap will be the more impulsive and fun loving guy of the two.

    Well, maybe if they were significantly de-Bay-ified, Skids at least could take cues from say the G1 version for improvement, Mudflap would probably need significant change too, but some of their history could potentially be kept, like having been tortured/experimented on by cons, and having a love/hate brotherly relationship.

    But honestly, they'd less likely be brought back in a show or comic, but possibly as toys.

    Maybe.

    Sure, go on then. If they're written more as a pair of dopey but well-meaning goofballs rather than wiggers that would be fine with me.

    I could've seen them derping it up in Animated, where their rather cartoony designs might've suited. TFP though I'm not so sure.

    Maybe what TFP could do is make them Wreckers. Almost everyone in TFP seems to be a Wrecker these days. Since Bay Skids and Mudflap have one big arm and fist each they'd have potential for being linked at the shoulder of their smaller limb side as a new Rack and Ruin.


    I'll get me coat...

    I'm pretty indifferent on those kids these days, but I wouldn't want to see them in fiction again just because I want MTMTE Skids as the basis for all future Skids'.

    Would it be interesting to see them in other media? Sure. Will I cry if they are never seen or heard from again? Definitely not. I think that they're a cool concept that could definitely work in another piece of Transformers fiction. They could've worked well in TFA. Or even TFP. I loved the combined ice-cream truck mode, I loved the bumbling nature of them, I loved the asymmetrical design. I just hated their faces. However, certain things would obviously have to be changed. Whether they stay 99% the same or if it's just the basic concept that they include, I think a lot of things about The Twins could work.

    Something like Digilaut's fan-art:

    TFA Skids and Mudflap by *digilaut on deviantART

    There's dozens of potential things you could change to make them more tolerable, or change so that the only resemblance to Bay's Twins' is a vague description.

    >Give them different heads and remove the cursing (for obvious reasons), and they could pretty much be Jazz or Blaster's proteges. Two young, bumbling up-and-coming Autobot warriors who have a strong sense of style.

    >Make them "Twins in Name Only". Skids and Mudflap, the two master Autobot assassins of legend. Cloak & Dagger, if you will.

    >Make them "Twins in Design Only". Two short, stout Autobots who transform into small vehicles, but have them with the personality of Sideswipe and Sunstreaker. Or even an Autobot version of Ransack and Crumplezone.

    >Make them "Twins in Concept Only". Two new members of the Wreckers, named 'Wreck' and 'Rule'. Virtually inseparable, and when on the battlefield are a force to be reckoned with.

    See? You can still have "The Twins" without making them 100% Bay's version of The Twins.

    I wouldn't mind the Twins, but there are so many other Movieverse characters/concepts I'd want first. Doc Scalpel, bad cop Barricade, Blackout, the Kitchen Crew, old man Jetfire, non-humanoid Constructicons, Laserbeak with the power of speech, Brains & non-rhyming Wheelie, the Dreads, and truck Megatron (who may or not be Optimus' brother, at least in the metaphorical sense) all take priority over Skids & Mudflap.

    What's ironic is that the ROTF Twins have some ANIMATED influence in their history, particularly Bumeblebee (a Chevy Beat) and the Twins Jetfire and Jetstorm (a couple of punks).

    To directly answer the OP, there probably will be Twin figures in the future, but probably not like Skids and Mudflap.

    ^This.

    French Mudflap is best Mudflap.

    He and G1 Skids should be like brother in arms till Mudflap betrayed him and joined Megatron's Constructicon Brigade.

    I never hated them so I'd be open to seeing them re-imagined into another universe.

    TF needs more Ice Cream Trucks.
