    As some of you may remember, a while back we got a set pic from the Boneyard in Arizona with the "Twins" and Bumblebee. On the back of one of the Twins was the word SKIDS where the plate would have gone.

    I was reading the Reign of Starscream TPB today, and on page 52, panel 4, one of the Autobots mentions sparring with SKIDS, in bold, black letters. Do you think this was on purpose by the writers, who had first hand information (They mention in the foreward that they had to change things because of ROTF) or them just picking a random name?

    It wouldn't surprise me, though I'm curious to see who the other one is supposed to be. Cliffjumper is one of the first bots that comes to mind, and I personally don't think the Deluxe repaint from the first movies toy line would stop them from making him completely different for the sequel. Wheelie also comes to mind, and wouldn't bother me, though the pointless fan disappointment would. Would be kinda cool to see them come up with a completely new character for the other "Twin-bot".

    Scraps

    The only other thing that caught my attention was in the same panel, Cliffjumper made a reference to Smokescreen about being able to pick up the SCRAPS, with it in caps and bold as well.

    Now I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to Transformers outside the movie-verse, but was there ever a Transformer named Scraps?

    Eh, I personally don't think either one is Hoist. Theoretically if the green one was Hoist (green makes more sense for him than red), than I don't think the license plate would say SKIDS (or was it SKIDZ?). We won't really know till we either get official info about the toy line, or the movie.

    As I recall, one of the editors mentioned that they had to remove Soundwave from the RoS script since he was in ROTF. This could be what they meant, or the change in names as you suggested.

    I thought there was a rumor that the other twin was called Mudflap?

    He could be refering to the Scraper drones (forklifts) from the game. There are leaked pics of that toy on the FP I believe. And for those of you who are curious and/or don't know, FAB Jazz got a repaint as "Sonic Shock Smokescreen" in G1-ish deco, plus an Autobot from RoS was named Smokescreen.
