    We saw them drive in at the beginning with the other Autobots but that was the only time we saw them. So just for fun, what do you think they were doing during the course of the movie?

    They were obviously going on their own missions in the beginning. Probably mischievious kinds of things like graffitti on landmarks and whatever. Then after they were called back to base, they were instructed to stay there on reserve since things were going down. They were probably used for training exercises or scientific experiments to find new weaknesses for Transformers. Then when Sentinel went crazy, that is probably when he killed them off screen.

    In fact, maybe when we saw that random explosion of debris flying out of the hanger, that was Twin parts since they tried to defend their human allies.

    They obviously were killed because they weren't deported as two of the nine.

    I think they were to be initially included in the Sentinel rampage scene but Bay ultimately cut them. You can still hear "Mudflap" being screamed during the rampage so they were meant to be there. Showing them die would have redeemed them in a lot of peoples' eyes since they die honorably in the book and it probably would have been similar in the movie.

    I saw it twice and I listened for this but I didn't hear Mudflap. But yeah I knew about the story in the novel. I would have loved to see that

    I know I heard it, but maybe it wasn't as pronounced as I had stated. I didn't hear it the first time I went during opening week since the crowd got sort of loud during that sequence and I wasn't listening for it, but I did hear it this afternoon, even if it is sort of faint when compared to all the destruction noise going on

    They were watching Spongebob Squarepants in the HQ all the time, not knowing what the hell is going on.

    Do you know who the voice belonged too? Who it sounded like?
    It might be easier to identify next time one of us see's it.

    I couldn't tell who it belonged to, maybe the voice actor of Skidz (considering he probably recorded the voice before the Twins were ultimately pulled) or possibly a NEST soldier like Lennox.

    I doubt it been Skids, seen as his death takes place before Mudflap.
    Nonetheless I'll look for it tomorrow.

    Those weren't the Twins. They were random Nest cars bringing up the rear. So there.

    It was just a soldier that was yelling Mudflap's name.

    Probably best to pretend that they got killed by Devastator and that the cars in the movie belonged to NEST.

    It would have been nice for them to have had the brains and wheelie parts. Living with Sam and then crashing the ship.

    Do you actually think Sam would want them living with him and Carly? They'd almost be like bigger versions of Wheelie and Brains.

    No no Brains and Wheelie were PERFECT in this movie. They were funny, didn't annoy peope, and had the audience loling all the way through both times (there were mainly adults and late teens in the first time and even they liked them).

    The Twins would probably be background all the way through then have their big finale with Ironhide when the time came if they were in the film.

    And to the guy that said they were just NEST cars, not they weren't. They were orange and green striped NEST cars just like their toys and comic images. They were the Twins

    It would have been cool if they were with Wheelie & Brains crashing the ship indeed.

    Cosmic rust blaster to the face, courtesy of Sentinel Prime moments after shooting up Ironhide.

    Sentinel was actually kind of racist in the comics too.
