    He still owes the entire world money for finding the Twins.

    I'm not a big fan of present-day rap, but for the sake of this post, I'll paraphrase it.

    "All TylerMirage does is win, win, win, no matter what!"

    I also was a bit surprised. Bay went on about how the Twins weren't in DOTM, but when the trailer came out and we spotted the Twins in this shot, it still generates a lot of heat and backlash from the people who are determined to prove that "DURR HURR BAY'S LYING", and in response, Bay said it wasn't in the final film. Reasonable, since trailers sometimes don't use the final product of some scenes.

    Yet when the final film is released in theatres, we still see the Twins in that same exact shot that Bay got a lot of shit for from fans, after a big deal about how the Twins aren't in the film. You'd think that the crew would've went to edit that shot out, or remove the Twins from the final shot, since it was the one that got a lot of crap.

    To be fair in the movie itself there is no way to tell they are the Twins. We can tell because we know every little facet of pre-production, but the average movie-goer has no more reason to suspect those cars are robots in disguise (much less Skids and Mudflap) than any of the other vehicles at NEST's base.

    Very true. Only Transformers fans are really going to notice two cars in the background of a scene in say, a colossal IMAX theatre screen, with 3D people, ladders, and other NEST base stuff in our face.

    Makes me sad because their presence and role in this film was really going to redeem them. :( 

    Goddammit why was that cut again?

    I would've loved to have seen their death scene on film. Doofuses to heroes. Redemption at its finest.

    No, that looks like the DOTM designs not the ROTF designs.

    That is why listening to your fans isn't always a good idea.

    You act like the designs don't share similarities.

    I was fine with the twins in RotF, but I didn't miss them in DotM. The tone of it didn't need their goofiness. Wheelie and Brains fit the bill perfectly in that regard.

    They weren't going to do anything goofy. Are you even aware of what type of role they were going to have?
