    Ok, so far I have read the summaries of Dark of the Moon, and I have to ask:

    Why is there such a lack of the Wreckers in the plot?

    I mean are they just cannon fodder or what?

    They're mechanics with very abrasive personalities that were kept from the public's eye and work alongside NASA to modify the ship that brought Sideswipe to Earth, the Xanitum, so the Autobots can leave the planet as ordered by Sentinel Prime. But when they return, the Wreckers join them and fight the Decepticons in Chicago.

    Like what the person above me said they are in the plot they just aren't as significant. Not every character has too be a big character.

    Yeah, it seems like they simply develop weaponry on the sidelines because they're cantankerous robots. They do wind up fighting in the Final Battle though.

    Maybe the Wreckers side with Sentinel Prime in killing the other autobots. Maybe Dylan offered a lifetime supply of lubricant oil to the Wreckers to kill the other autobots.

    I hope they aren't betrayers or cannon fodder, they seem like incredibly awesome autobots

    The title has spoilers it's annoying when people get bent out of shape about spoilers when their is one in all caps in the title.

    @pingbee: No they won't they apparently create mechtech for the autobots too use in the final battle and also are reinforcements in a way.

    Whether 'spoilers' is in the title or not. It's still nice to have the tags in your post. Just in case.

    If you saw that a thread title involved spoilers, why would you get upset that YOU read the contents inside?

    Geez guys, all he was trying to say was that a little extra spoiler warning doesn't hurt.

    Just because its in the thread title doesn't mean crap, and it also doesn't hurt you to add
    [ /spoiler] in your posts with spoilers in them anyway.

    Lay off him, you guys are ridiculous for jumping all over him like that. Its not like he was all AAAHHH IVE BEEN SPOILED MY LIFE IS RUINED FOREVER.

    The dude has a point. Plus I'm sure the title was refering to possible spoilers in the OP and about the Wreckers and not spoiler about y'know, the plot. There are other ways to type what was typed without spoiling the film like saying "they were assigned to build something for someone" as silly as that sounds.
