    Ok. Micheal Bay, you said that if we find the twins in DOTM, you will give out a $25,000 reward. I think all of us found them. So, are you going to give the money out, or is it one of your old tricks.

    I would say it's an old trick, IMO.

    No one got it, because Michael Bay is a douche who makes promises he can't keep.

    I'm pretty sure somebody made the claim, Bay denied it, and then promptly got sued by that person. I don't know what ever happened with that, though.

    A guy in my town is in the process of suing Michael Bay, after his scretary told the person that he wasn't serious about the money. Unfortunately for him, this guy didn't take too well to their excuse.

    They should use my previous post as Bay's entire legal defense.

    reminds me of an old Pepsi commercial where if you collected one million bottle caps, youd get a fighter jet; some guy sued for that and i think it was settled with him getting a good lump sum of money

    What Michael Bay as to say about this is precisely this:

    Now what Michael Bay is hearing right now:

    Anyone who actually thought Bay would deliver on that promise is either naive or stupid.

    That or they think Michael Bay is a bit screwloose on his head, given the fact this man almost killed his main actors twice in TF1 and put a bounty on a woman's head because she killed puppies, I would say that assumption is completely justified.

    To be honest, we may not have seen the twins in bot mode but we did in fact see them in car mode. You cant just say they were just cars. The cars we seen match 100% to the twins new looks, colors, stripes and all. Now if tey had just been pure black chevy Sparks or any other solid not tricked out Sparks, than id be more apt to say "no, those were just cars."

    If you see a ninja walking around in a movie, you can't say it was a movie about Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, why? Because you need to see his personality to say "THE CHARACTER appeared", since those Cars didn't star talking in slang and fithging with each other in their screen-time, then it becomes a fact that they were just cars.

    To exemplify:
    - A Statue of Roger appeared in Hellboy I and II, does that mean the character appeared? No, something similar to the character did a cameo, but since he didn't start talking..

    - There is a yellow beetle in TF1, can we say that was a dimension-traveling G1-Bee making a crossover? No, because he didn't show any personality or signs of life.

    - There is an helicopter in TF1? Can we say that was Springer? No, because he didn't show life or personality.

    And the list goes on.

    If Bay was lying about the Twins, why would he be telling the truth about the money?
