Do you think the omitted Autobots aren't part of the series anymore?

That's not 9?
Ex-Decepticons Wheelie and Brains are the ones that dont count. Simmons was reffering the other Autobots (the ones working for NEST)

Like I mentioned in my topic ages ago I was wondering when the decision to cut the Twins was made seeing as they should have been included in that count. That would have made 11 including Brains and Wheelie who at that time were considered Autobots otherwise I'm sure they would have been destroyed ages ago.

It's just a little unsettling that characters literally vanished. It's one thing to just disappear but at a time where they really should be mentioned they just aren't.

Question: Would it have been so hard to substitute the new additions for the omitted characters?

I wouldn't object to having the only new addition be Que as he could have been working with NASA to build the Xanthium (sp). The twins could have taken up 2 Wrecker slots while Jolt could have taken up the 3rd and then it's debatable if Wheelie and Brains needed to be included at all or as much as they were and instead we could have had Arcee.

No, they were never intended to be part of that count, since Sentinel would had killed them at the same moment he killed Ironhide, which was before this scene took place

Considering Skids and Mudflap werent seen for the rest of DOTM, it suggest that Sentinel killed off screen in the film (and not just in the adaptations)

they survived, but considering they arent in DOTM, its likely they are dead now

Arcee and Chromia basically fused together and got legs and appeares on T.V now.

Where she's is more appreciated by her true loyal fans.

If they're gonna kill off everyone except for Prime and Bee (maybe Rachet too),
then they will need to come up with a decent explanation.

Very true. It's sad how ultimately Bay crumbled under the pressure of the risk of including them. Still, having an explanation as to what happened to some of the cast in a medium that a significant number of people don't have access to or are even unaware of is pretty silly. Plus it's unclear how much of the Transformers in the books, comics and games are actually canon to the movies.
