    ok so i now people think the twins werent in DOTM cause Bay thought they were cheesy and fans hated them but one of my friends was watching the directors cut of DOTM and Bay said the real reason the twins were not in DOTM is he didnt have the money.

    Bay probably wanted to avoid the topic of the twins being racist.

    The statement that they didn't have enough money is just not true. They had already shot several sequences of the twins in car mode before Paramount asked for them to be cut out.

    He may have been telling the truth. I have no idea what is on the director's cut DVD. In fact, I didn't even know there was one out yet. :confused:

    It's likely someone at Paramount wanted the news stories to be about all the 3D action in Transformers 3 and not articles with something about are characters in the film somehow racially offensive.

    Even cutting the twins out you still end up with lots of robots in the film so it's not going to ruin the film just to get rid of controversial characters.

    Although if I was Bay I'd say it's because I'm no George Lucas so I'm man enough to cut my annoying characters.

    I think Bay was just hoping people would quietly forget them, because they were his idea to start with.

    That actually annoyed me. I was hoping they'd actually try to improve their characters. I hate it when a creators response to fan hate is to freak out and remove the element of the story in question, whether by killing them (which is what would have happened) or by just removing them without explaination.

    I don't think Paramount cared. I know GM didn't, in fact they were kind of annoyed because they provided the Spark cars, and got no press from them.

    Bay missed potenital with the Twins. Their deaths would have been both a sacrifice (thus redeeming their charecters) and a apology letter to fans who hates ROTF.

    They were just like having a pair of animated BumbleBee's in the film.

    And how people say they are racist is beyond me?

    They were characters based on a sterotype, yeah, but they were in no way racist.

    They were probly cut though, because Bay may have folded under pressure from paramount.

    There's nowt worse than moaning internet-fans.

    Devastator killed them off screen. Think about it, it fits.

    And that's where I stopped reading. There isn't even a director's cut out, let alone one with a full commentary by Bay.

    "didn't have the money" :lol 

    That's how it went in the book, right? I wouldn't have minded seeing that.

    As a matter of fact it does, the Twins to not appear for the rest of the movie after they take on Devastator. Devastator must have killed them before he started climbing the pyramid. And Simmons and Leo must have escaped somehow.

    well remember i myself consider the comics canon, in where the twins appear alive on the post ROTF Comics

    not to forget, the twins are still in DOTM, but only in alt mode, so they are not really dead
