    They were apparently cut because of everyone complaining about them being racist stereotypes.

    Sucks because in the movie adaptation comic they redeem themselves.

    If they are indeed cut, it has to be because of all the controversy they got from ROTF.

    Because people would claim that
    their death scene
    would be the only good thing about the film, regardless of the actual quality of the end product.

    If the twins were booted or have reduced screen time. It's because they were stupid offensive dicks.

    Because people were bashing them in the first place! its almost like Bay and Nelson are telling us "thats what you get" by us reading the twins' shinning moment in the novel, then being cut from the film.

    As true as that is, I doubt that's the reason. They were probably cut because they didn't want the whole racist robots fiasco taking place like it did when ROTF came out. Even if they had little screen time people would still make comments about the small roles they would have.

    Whats the point of that? We all know that peopling hating on the films will just say "The only good thing about DOTM is the cutting of the twins from the final product." You can't satisfy most people so you might as well do what you think is right.

    Bay was criticized for creating the Twins on the grounds that they were racist stereotypes.

    Perhaps this time round, he's cut their death scenes on the grounds that he might end up being accused of being racist by killing the 'black' characters.

    Not that I think they're really being cut.

    I can see it now.


    If Bay were to keep the twins and kill them by Sentinel Prime people would say now hes killing black characters because hes a racist even though hes kept Epps alive for all of the 3 movies.

    While I largely equate the Twins with Jar Jar Binks, I think cutting them out altogether would be a mistake.
    Surprisingly, I found myself moved by Skids' move to save Bumblebee, and Mudflap's separate attempt to avenge his brother. In ROTF, they annoyed me to no end and I prayed Devastator at least had consumed Mudflap - in DOTM, they die noble deaths, and I find it hard to hate them as much as I did before.

    Still not buying their toys :D

    Well, you have two major factors here:
    1) They were terrible, stupid, offensive characters.
    2) Bay and his writers don't use 'logic' or 'talent' and since the movie is already realllly long, they probably needed to cut some stupid robot stuff so we could get more Witwicky family hijinks!

    I'll buy the ones fromt he DOTM line just to have them. I owned the ice cream truck one its pretty cool, but the other one they released of them was horrible. the Deluxe of ROTF sucked, butt he DOTM ones look really cool and not to complicated and a mess like the other.

    How are they offensive? And if you decide to say black stereotypes you can just leave the thread now because it takes a racist to equate two gangsta talking robots to being one of the "brothas".

    Because of the importance they had for one scene in both the movie and the novel, I still say that they are in the movie, regardless of what Bay says. He's lied about the movies before.
