Hi. I was wondering exactly that...sorry if there's already a topic like this. I just was thinking...is there any explanation for the vanishing of some of the characters? I mean, in Dark of the Moon, there are no more Skids & Mudflap, no Jolt, etc. Maybe there was no explanation in the movie but maybe there is one in another media, like the comics, games, etc. -What happened to Skids & Mudflap? I think Bay just simply removed them cuz most people hated them. -Where did Jolt go? -One of the Autobots girls died in ROTF...Chromia, right? But what about Arcee and Moonracker? -How did Wheelie's eye heal? Ratchet fixed it or what. -Long Haul also appears in DOTM and trans-scans a vehicle...really cool scene. Is he the same Decepticon from ROTF? -What happened to the Allspark shard? I know in ROTF it is attracted like a magnet by Jetfire's body, but nothing more is said about it. Well, I think that's all...hope to find an answer xD and sorry if the topic already exists.
