    I always thought the Dreads were not completely necessary and that they missed an opportunity to put the Stunticons in, what with everyone doing...you know...STUNTS during that whole fight. Would have utilized the characters to their full potential.

    Anyone else agree?

    I would continue to add that during the whole stunt and hunt in the highway scenes, they were outrunned by the 'bots... until finally they see a blockade up ahead... its motormaster in base mode,completely blocking the way . As the 'bots slowed down and transformed , ready to clear him off the path, the stunticons were quick to arrrive that the scene and they merged into Menasor. Suddenly sideswipe calls a "CUT" and "waitjuzaminute" , pulled Michael Bay to the side and complained the fight is unfair since they (the autobots) are not combiner/gestalt. After some negotiation. .. Bay decided to reshoot the whole scene with new script ,ending up as what we see now presently in TF3.

    I like thinking of the Dreads as Insecticons for some reason. IDK why.

    But if you added two more they may have made another cool combiner.

    I agree that the highway scene was a perfect missed opportunity for the Stunticons. They could've put a combining scene during the highway scene for good measure; imagine various Stunticons merging with Motormaster a few at a time before unleashing the full gestalt. Knowing the uniqueness of the movie designs already, I wouldn't be surprised if the designers turned Menasor into a giant wheel-bot. That would've kept in line with the car theme. And later they could've split up for that Mexican standoff and some other conflict that destroys them.



    However, the Dreads were cool enough already. Give us a deluxe Hatchet and Crowbar, Hasbro!

    Maybe. Either way the Decepticons needed to put up a better fight.

    The stunticons are no doubt a fan fav of G1. Killing them all in a 2 minute span would upset the G1-whiners hugely.

    Holy crap, I'd actually have enjoyed dotm had that been the case. Get Bay to sign you as a writer, you're a damn sight better than the normal clowns he employs.

    LOL someone with a few cool ideas doesn't automatically translate into them becoming a screenwriter.

    The Dreads are way cooler than the Stunticons could ever dream of being.

    It would've been cool to see Megatron on the highway plowing through some random vehicles with the Dreads. Such a badass truck that didn't get much use.

    LOL you don't always know that.

    You have to wonder just how the scene was set to play out before the stuntwoman was injured and they had to reuse the footage from The Island.

    Maybe have Prime catch up to him and engage in an implied fight sequence. This would've been a great way to explain why Prime was late to Ironhide's funeral.
