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

The Novels and comics are mostly canon now thanks to john barber as he was able to fix all of the plot holes now from the prequels and films

IMO, I do not consider the comics canon with the films. They are a great way for fans to stay interested in that aspect of the franchise, but comics just don't fly in my book.

I agree that the twins are dead( as the novelization says they are) but Arcee and Jolt are another story.

Canon or not, Arcee and Jolt are dead, otherwise they would had been seen leaving with their fellwo Autobots to the Xanthium

They're not canon - they were based on an earlier script that got tossed out. If its on screen, it's canon. If it's not on screen, not canon.

Unless they died on screen or someone or something within the actual films confirms they're dead then as far as the movies are concerned they're not dead. Comics and novels and even toy bios can do or say what they like but they're not the movies. The movies have the last say on the movies. When it comes to BayFormers the movies are the law.
The most we can assume is that they left to go elsewhere since they're not seen in the films or mentioned. But even then later movies can contradict earlier ones if they want to say the Twins were just kicking about NEST or whatever and everyone simply forgot about them during DotM.

But the novels aren't the movies. If Bay decided for TF4 he wanted the Twins back somehow he'd have them back regardless of what some book had already said. If the novels were law to the movies then the end of the movie concerning Megatron would've been the same as the novel and apparently it wasn't.

Nice that some people can find answers to content themselves with in the supporting media for the movie but it's not the be-all and the next movie can easily override/ignore it if it wants to, so novels and comics and stuff shouldn't be taken as gospel.
