Would anyone have prefered Skids/Mudflap stay as an ice cream truck?

    I can't help but think that I actually would have liked The Twins if they hadn't reformatted.

    I thought the idea of an ice cream truck transformer was interesting and unique. The idea of having two bumbling robots merge to form one vehicle could have been a much better "comic relief" device for the kids than having two ghetto gangbangers transform into two shiny new "buy-me-mobiles."

    Thinking back at ROTF, I actually liked Skids and Mudflap until they reformatted into the new cars... then, they stopped being interesting... and started being just plain obnoxious.

    EDIT: Woops, thought this was the movie forum - can someone move this?

    I would've loved to see the Ice Cream Truck through the whole movie...I don't think it would've been enough to make people who didn't like them already see them in a new light, though.

    I like them better as cars.

    No. Having TFs turn into old ice cream trucks are not attractive in my mind. I prefer Skids and Mudflap as the cars.

    I actually liked them better as an Ice Cream truck. :)  But it probably wouldn't work for the movie because they needed to get to places quick and the old truck wouldn't work too well.

    They would have been a lot funnier if they stayed as the ice cream truck. They were funny as the cars but teaming up as the ice cream truck opened the way for a lot more good humor!
