    Wasn't Silverbolt supposedly going to appear in DoTM? He was supposed to be voiced by James Avery(Uncle Phil from Fresh Prince of Bel-air)but we haven't heard anything since the confirmation(that was a year ago!) Has he been cut from the film?

    There are two most likely theories:

    1 - The name Silverbolt was a smokescreen to hide the true character's name, so James Avery is actually playing someone else [Roadbuster, for example].

    2 - James Avery was talking about the DOTM game, not to the movie.

    I think silverbolt was a code name for another transformer. i think its either wheelie, mirage, and or one of the wreckers( target one).

    I think he meant the DOTM game. There is a level in the game where Starscream faces the Aerialbots.

    Doesn't say he is providing the voice for a movie character as well. It just says Transformers 3.

    But it can be easily implied.

    Thats Stratosphere, not Silverbolt.

    I dont think they would get someone with a great voice like James Avery to do one character who is in one level of a game. Seems pointless.

    I think he'll turn out to be a character in the film, im guessing Leadfoot.

    I know the Cargo plane in Stratosphere, but 3 Aerialbots take off from Stratosphere. It is most likely that one of them is named Silverbolt.

    it even sounds like a potential name for a race car "silverbolt"
    I wouldn't be suprised if it was a working name for one of them

    Silverbolt was the name for Armada Blurr in Japan. It's not totally unprecedented for it to be the name of a heavily armed sportscar robot.

    Someone said Roadbuster? That sounds a likely candidate to me.

    The onlything that keeps me from thinking silverbolt is a cover up name is the fact that the onlt silver tfs in the movie are sideswipe and
    soundwave
    . I know it's just a name but still I can't really see James Avery's voice on either of them but at the same time I can (shredder voice for
    soundwave
    would be awesome and sideswipe could have a new voice actor since he only got one line in rotf basiclly). Maybe he's the bank truck who knows, someone needs too ask Bay himself instead of wasting time annoying him with all the twin questions.

    James Avery as one of The Wreckers would be cool. We also know that Bill Fagerbakke is playing someone as well, possibly another Wrecker.

    Maybe he's voicing Wheeljack, since Wheeljack is an old man here, and well, good old Uncle Phil is old.

    Happy to see good old Uncle Phil - Uncle Phil-berbolt!

    Speaking of memory from Avery's confirmation, does someone still have that GIF of the Jazz toy being thrown out of the house by Uncle Phil? Like the original Jazz in Fresh Prince? Oh, I'd love you forever if you could find it... I'll start looking too.

    EDIT: Here we go.
