    Do we have the tech spec from the back yet? I'm thinking we don't.

    However, with them sharing the same last name, I'd say that chances are highly likely :wink:

    While that's true, I wouldn't wanna ignore the possibility of it simply being namesake, what with the fact that his first name is "Spike" of all things. Along with that, aren't the new combiner toys partially named as such for the sake of being that way, rather than actually being modern versions of the Protectobots & Constructicons?

    from hasbrotoyshop.com "It was only natural that a robot with as much skill at combat on a crowded road would be paired up with a human specialist in urban warfare. Spike Witwicky and BACKFIRE make the perfect team. Together, they stalk the DECEPTICONS in secret, through some of the earth’s most crowded and confusing cities. BACKFIRE and his human ally have much to gain - but even more to lose. Can they trust each other? More importantly - can they afford not to? Don’t waste time deciding. Switch into three-wheeler mode, sit Spike Witwicky on top, and send them into battle. Or let your human ally figure take refuge behind his mechanical friend when he’s in robot mode. You can even switch to weapon mode and add on any other MECHTECH figure! (Sold separately.) Set includes vehicle figure and human ally figure. Ages 5 and up."

    I wonder if something happens that earns him the nickname "Spike" in this movie?

    According to the IDW comics, Sam's dad has several brothers and a sister, at least one of which got a name (Ben). Could be Ben's son!
