    I was thinking and i'm still wondering about that Ice Cream truck I bet most people have forgotten about him by know. But i'm still wondering who is he and what faction is he?

    The ice cream truck is exactly who we've known the ice cream truck to be for months now.

    Generally accepted to be Skids and Mudflap's first earth form. We could possibly have been misled though...but I doubt it.

    How could we be misled? The callsheets referred to the ice cream van as the Twins, and their ability to split apart in van mode is described in the first chapter of the novelization (on Del Rey's website).

    There was even a video of the truck split in half and spinning around. It's the twins. End-o-story.

    There's also Alliance issue 4, which had their car modes on the cover along with Sideswipe and the three bikes, and the ice cream truck along with Sideswipe and the three bikes within the book.

    also the movie adaptation first chapter describes the ice cream truck being chased by kids splitting in half and leaving the kids a mountain of ice cream

    I wonder if that'll actually make it into the movie. :lol 
    I also wonder if there will be an Ice Cream Truck TF toy; that would be pretty cool. A vehicle that turns into two separate robots, kind of like the old Micromasters that did that.

    Yeah, they are all but confirmed as the Twins now, for the reasons said above. It will be interesting to see what their robot modes are in Ice Cream mode, now....

    the twins being the ice cream truck is probably hoe Bay is going to introduce the whole "combiner" issue to the non-transformers fans
