    So what does everyone think of the twins?



    *spoilers*



    I think they get kind of annoying after awhile, I had hoped putting decepticon technology into would make them more.... badass.... meaner, stronger.... but apparently the story writers felt the show needed 2 more Bumblebees.

    Plus they actually use the word powerlink. *falls over*

    And looking foward to actually seeing Waspinator. :D

    I liked it and I liked the twins. Magnus is a dick though; "Find someone Expendable", "Attack the Decepticon REFUGE camps"

    You can only see Magnus, and a green and red Prowl in the image. You also see Wheeljack and Perceptor but the others are sillouettes.

    That sucks- I want less characters like Bumblebee and more characters like Prowl or Jazz

    Yeah I can try.

    OK so after capturing Screamer, the Autobots study him to gain knowledge of flight, where the Decepticons have the advantage. Magnus says to find a test subject. We see 2 brothers working at a factory or garbage dump, and then there is a big explosion. They look dead, and they decide to use them as test subjects, they are twins from a split spark, they believe it will be interesting to see what happens when they put the decepticon technology into them. Well ok they are rebuilt into planes and then go right away into elite guard training, Sentinel says he hasn't trained in a really long time but does it anyway of course. So the brothers goof off, and are full of themselves the whole time even with Jazz, so they put them in a simulator, and Perceptor uploads starscreams code into the simulator. Starscreams code takes over the simulator and the brothers are in REAL danger of be killed by them, but the autobots can't risk taking them out of the simulator. So the brothers realize one uses fire and one uses ice as attacks, then they also realize then can merge into one being "powerlink". They beat Starscream and go back to being smug. A decepticon prisoner named Waspinator escapes prison and heads towards Earth, their first mission will be to capture the traitor.

    Ah shoot sorry about that. Thank you Ms. Ilovedinobot :) 

    And how about you guys wait to see them on the screen before saying more Bumblebees. They may not even be as bad as him.

    They arent. They are far more competent, far less annoying and actually obey orders!
