    What are the odds of them appearing in TF3? Do you want them to appear?

    They've already used the term "Seeker" for something else, and TK/SW have already gotten representation in the toyline...

    Anyone else think that they'll omit them completely in the films, leaving them as toy-only characters?

    Just wondering what popular opinion is on this.

    So yeah, Movie-verse Thundercracker and Skywarp. Discuss.

    Man, there were so many missed aerial fight opportunities in this movie :( 

    I missed Breakaway, Blaze Master and yeah, the other true Seekers as well.

    I'd love to see Thundercracker and espeically Skywarp in TF3. They've already reused prior CG models for new characters (ie Grindor), so it is possible I guess. Not holding my breath, though.

    Only if they look different from Starscream. They can all be F-22s for all I care, just so long as their bot modes are different.

    Y'know I had that crazy idea...

    what if Starscream's hatchlings (i imagine designs similar to starscream yet different enough, like the seeker from the new game) scanned various differently colored jets and were named Skywarp/Thundercrackers/Whatevers in the toyline?

    Well it would make sense to have SOMEONE helping Starscream in the sky during battles....:crazy: 

    Remember in the old G1 toon the Autobot's were getting creamed evertime they fought the seekers (Until they built the Aerialbots)

    But really c'mon Starscream needs AT least Thundercracker & Skywarp you could even use Thundercracker's sonic boom's and Skywarp's teleportation powers because another "Seeker" Jetfire and his own Space Bridge so why not?

    This.

    They seem to be keeping the very main characters all individuals, lets keep it that way and no clones, please...

    Though I'd still prefer them to be different jets. I wanna see a Harrier.

    BS. Nobody was complaining during G1 when they were practically all repaints. Same with Universe/Classics & MP Skywarps, Thundercrackers etc.

    Uh no this wouldn't make SENSE...In the first film when Starscream was fighting the Air Force's F22 where they or where they not ALL F22's?? It would be kinda stupid to try and blend in when you have 3 different planes...:confused:

    I want an F-16 Transformers toy! Voyager or larger. F-16's are my favorite planes & there were tons of them in ROTF, one should have transformed.

    I want the battles in TF3 to move off the ground. We already had enough ground battles in the first 2 movies.

    I want more planes & less cars for TF3. I was hoping Breakaway would be in ROTF.

    The comics were produced in association with Dreamworks etc, and are technically part of the Movie series "expanded universe" canon. Therefore in that continuity, one bot named Ramjet is dead.

    Doesn't stop the film makers from deciding to use the character, though. The comics work around the films, to fit in where possible. And in my opinion do a good job of it.

    if a dead character is used that means the character got revived at some point

    I hope if they're introduced they resemble their old selves more than Starscream did. I don't want a couple of clones of that gorilla-style design. I believe they should use smaller jets like F-16s, F-35s, Typhoons, and Harriers so they won't have to be scunched down or made extremely wide to remain in scale with smaller TFs. This would allow more G1-ish looks and proportions too.

    Wow, the persistence to force G1 into the movie verse is still astonishing. :puke: 

    imo, screw all those all old jetmodes.
