    Will Skids and Mudflap be in the third movie? I'm pretty sure that they were a hit among kids and most moviegoers, but could they have been offensive enough to not risk putting them in again, and maybe risk bad publicity? They were not shown at the end of the movie, so maybe there's room to just say they died or something. And if they do stick around, will they still have the same speaking roles as comic relief, making cracks at Leo? Or might they be background characters, with new Bots and a new storyline taking the front?

    I thought the Twins were okay in ROTF, and they had a few funny lines. But if TF3 is going to be darker, and focus well on a good story, I think it would be better to have less of the Twins (and comedy overall), or maybe none of them at all. Thoughts?

    I have a very horrible feeling they will be in it and likely play some prominent role just to prove some point about the production team can do whatever they want.

    I dont mind if there in TF3 I just hope they tone them down on their rudeness. If they do that Ill be happy to accept them as Transformers

    I wouldn't mind them. i actually like them. They have potential, Bay just has to find a way to mature them a bit if they end up in TF3.

    As much as they didn't really trash ROTF as I thought they would, their presence meant that better characters weren't developed and used instead. "Goofy" should not be the adjective we're going for in a Transformers movie. We're looking for more characters like Sideswipe (and more Sideswipe, dammit).

    They'll most likely return. I'd be shocked if they didn't

    This. To me, they were one of the few pieces of comedy relief that actually worked, and pretty damn well.

    Also, there's nothing offensive about them (besides cursing, of course).

    Not only will they play a bigger role, but they will Leo and Simmons gaurdians, just as BB is Sam and Mikelea's gaurdian. :lol

    I actually liked the twins. They were one of the few parts of the comic relief side of the movie I actually laughed at. I wish they could mature them a little bit so they don't seem like flat characters. But if they just dumped their funny sides altogether that would be kind of dumb.

    Honestly, after the accusations of racism, I really think they'll be pushed to the sidelines.

    I'd kill one of them and then show the other having to deal with life without his twin and having to grow up a bit. Mudflap should've been left minced by Devastator and Skids have to carry on, maybe pairing up with Leo for some surrogate brother comedy, but underneath it he's still sad about losing his real brother. Could even have Ratchet counselling him or a private comment to him from Optimus about his dealing with the loss. The Autobots have yet to really discuss life in a war so this could be a good chance to show that aspect of their existence.

    But more realistically I reckon the Twins will be back same as ever, unless Bay gets a new favourite for TF3 and concentrates on that while the Twins fall into the far background.

    What I really want to know though is will Wheelie be back?

    Since they are Bay's favorites, I can't see them not being in TF3 to at least some degree. Though I'm hoping one or more of the inevitable new characters replaces them as his favorites. Not that I don't like the Twins, but I think that they should be pushed to the side before Bay overuses them.

    I didn't think the twins were that bad, but I won't miss them if they're not in TF3.
