    I would welcome Scalpel back.

    Couldn't care less about Reedman.

    Ze doctor is pretty funny, but I don't see another need for him. Reedman I could do without. That's an idea that sounds great in theory but just didn't feel right for me.

    this.

    An enthusiastic yes for Scalpel. Never again for Reedman.

    As unique a creation as it was, I feel it's too much of a dilution of the transformers concept. I was looking at some special features on one of the movies, and I was struck by something Aaron Archer said about transformers, and how they don't morph, they transform. While Reedman was technically a combiner made of atomic transformers, it's really getting far too close to being something like T-1000 liquid metal stuff that can form any shape.

    Anyway, they shouldn't waste their time with transformers that don't translate to toys.

    I wouldn't mind the doc back just because he showed a great deal of personality in the few lines he got in the film.

    Reedman felt too much like the Replicators from Stargate SG1 and really did have much of a Transformers feel to me. Combined with no personality.

    Couldn't have said it better. Same goes for any and all "pretenders". Good Lord that was a dumb concept.

    Doc needs to come back. He needs to come back. And be the main villain. Shockwave is actually Ze Doctor in a giant robot suit.


    Reedman was a cool one-off thing, he doesn't need to return.

    Didn't Scalpel die? I remember someone saying in the novel Optimus blasted him or something.

    Anyways I'd like to see both of them back. They were neat editions to ROTF.

    I wouldn't, besides their purpose in the story has already been fulfilled.

    In the long list of characters whom we don't know what the hell happened to, I don't really put them too high. And to be totally honest, I was annoyed by Scalpel having a German accent. Is he from the German part of cybertron? If they're going to speak earth languages, the accents should be as common and clear as possible, I.E. Ironhide's quasi british accent or Prime and Ratchet's well spoken American english.
