    Here is some facts:

    1) They mention that Wheeljack might be a SAAB car, but never mention more about it after that.
    2) Ratchet is returning in this movie, but we have not seen him lately.
    3) I the G1 cartoon we see Wheeljack and Ratchet working together in the lab.
    4) Both Wheeljack and Ratchet are brainiacs.

    Do you think the fact we have not seen those two is because maybe they are in the movie, but the work in the lab

    If Wheeljack is in the film; the Saab rumour might have been a mix-up with GI Joe, which is seen in that trailer as the Baroness' car.

    I hope he's in the film, there are too many small 'bots vs. the huge 'cons. Mudflap, Skids and Trax, all midgets. BB and Sideswipe will be fairly big but really Ironhide, Prime and Ratchet were the biggest. How are they supposed to take on SS, Megatron, at least one seeker we can assume (?), Soundwave and the Audi? The three new guys will get creamed.

    Where the hell is Prowl, Bluestreak, Grapple and other big guys? C'mon!

    Eh... no. The movie is not G1. G1 is not evidence for anything in the movie.

    This belongs in the ROTF forum.

    EDIT: Damn it. I am being ass today. This IS the movie forum. Grrrr at stupid me.

    Seriously? Again with the bigger mentality? Maybe you should look at your own avatar and realize that even Arnold the Giant was beaten even with him being big. No wonder America has an obseity epidemic - everyone thinks bigger is better.

    I think Wheeljack being in the movie was, unfortunately, an April Fools joke..which is a shame, because it would have been perfect. The windshield and roof remind me alot of G1 Wheeljack :(

    If you haven't seen the video featuring all the GM cars used as alt-modes for the Autobots in ROTF, you would have seen Ratchet right behind the Corvette (Sideswipe, I assume).

    So Ratchet is in ROTF... chances are he doesn't play a big role. As for Wheeljack... I've never heard anything about him being in ROTF or being a SAAB.

    My only question is, is source reliable? If so, where's the back up proof?

    No...

    The car in the beginning of the Joe trailer is a Bentley, and certainly not the Saab Aero X.

    I'm pretty sure that was a Bentley. The white car in the trailer, right?

    edit: Whoops, didn't see the post right before mine. Nevermind then, Optimatron got it.

    With GM trying to clean up their image, promoting the most worthless,gas guzzling vehicle ever might be such a great idea.

    He's almost absent from the GM video. I didn't notice until now. He rolls up with Sideswipe and he's Behind Jolt.

    If you guys remember from the thread with the GM designer he was asked if we saw of the GM cars in the promotion video that would appear in the film and he had said he couldn't answer.

    Hey a good point made by the OP. The last shot we have of Ratchet is in the hangar with the military which im assuming is the new base for the autobots.

    At the very least we know that Ratchet could be hanging back at HQ monitoring the world and what not and dispatching autobots to hotspots and maybe building something with wheel jack if he is even in the movie.

    Rachet and Wheeljack are building the Dinobots. OK, they're not. Rachet is probably repairing Optimus. I'd enjoy seeing Wheeljack in the film, with he and Rachet building a mega bot to whoop up on Devs.
