    Four, really?

    What makes it worse it that his last line pertains to having a lot of work to do. I guess he was reeeeeeally busy just offscreen

    Mudflap/Skids disappear too, and it seems the one Arcee triplet (excuse me, "twin" as they're referred to in the film) that isn't shown getting asploded vanishes as well

    i think that was more of an "Arcee, Twins: Decepticon headed your way", as they are both (by both i mean all five) involved in the chase.

    We know whenever a character mysteriously disappears or is replaced by another one, it's because...














    the Spacebridge did it.

    Look, I keep saying this and saying it.

    This movie is indeed an awesome spectacle.

    But that's all it is. Do not look for coherency or even for characters not to vanish or pop up without explanation as the "plot" needs them. I doubt anyone would be at all surprised if Wheelie or the Twins didn't even appear in TF 3 with no explanation or even a mention.

    Well it'd be a better movie if everything was there for a reason and all loose ends were taken care of.

    But if you have a problem that it took multiple viewings to notice, then it's really not that a big deal.

    I brought this up in my other thread which no one seemed to want to look at :/ I brought up a lot of other stuff that I noticed that no one had pointed out so far but yeah he just kind of is non exsistant. That kind of happens when you have too many characters and some of them mean more to the writers than others so that some are ignored and stuff. We can all just assume that whatever happened to Barricade happened to him :/

    Probably hid inside Bumblebee like what Frenzy did with Barricade. No reason to put himself in danger in the Egypt battle. If I'm wrong, this may be covered in some future comic.

    he got sucked up in the space bridge vortex, then never seen again. they did all come flying out at random. maybe wheelie got ate up by the spacebridge.

    He's still on the scene even after the Space Bridge event. The point at which he disappears is shortly after they're allowed to pass through security.

    I'm less mad about Wheelie disappearing than I am Ratchet and Ironhide being sidelined for the hillbilly 'bots... But yeah, twigged that after the first showing. That's what happens when you introduce so many characters into a film; you can't give all of them a decent exit.

    See this is what really bothers me about people already asking for another 20 new characters in TF3. I want Dinobots, and Unicron, and all kinds of stuff. This movie had way too many characters, some barely speak, some just disappear, it's the biggest flaw in the movie for me

    Maybe Devastator sucked him up and grinded him to oblivian, putting him out of his misery?
