    With the Transformers movies, anything is possible! And this is very likely. Sort of like a bad joke, it just has to be continued after making so much talk the last two movies.

    If there is another Giant Helicopter Decepticon in the vein of Blackout and Grindor, there had better be a new voyager mold at least. Leader class at best.

    I hope I will see another. I hope it's like a gag or something, like the Carmines from Gears of War or something like that.

    If they are going to use a lot of Decepticons in the background again for a really big fight then yea I think reusing some of the robot designs that managed to stand out would be better visually than using the less interesting protoforms.

    Plus from the sneak peek at Transformers Prime the Decepticons were using the same body type and alt mode for the lower ranking warriors so I wonder if the films might go with the same idea. Maybe something to show that while they share body types they are not drones but have individual personalities. A bit like how human soldiers might dress the same and act as a unit but they are still individuals.

    I'd love one more Blackout clone in the last mega-bang movie. Call him Vortex, Incinerator, something that was planned for him.

    Vortex for Transformers 3!!!

    I wouldn't mind more Constructicon drones either. They don't have to have lines or development as usual, but eh. Not really seeing it happen by this point. So, more Long Hauls, Mixmasters, Scrappers, and maybe a Rampage. Maybe even an Overload.

    I wouldn't want another Demolishor/Scavenger, though. The audience would eaassily recognize, "Hey, they're just reusing models now!" with him. I mean, he ran over half of Shanghai and the money shot of Prime jumping on him was everywhere.

    A Bonecrusher or Brawl, I could live with.

    no, i'm gonna say. i remember reading in an interview that for this movie there was going to be none of that nonsense; that death means death. which makes me believe they won't be bringing back any dead baddies.

    Grindor and Blackout weren't exact clones though. While Blackout became a Pave Low, Grindor transformed into a Super Stallion, two different helicopter models.

    It's definitely possible. I am hoping it happens - and that the character is aced easily - just to continue it as a running gag with either a dark blue or brown one, named Vortex.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Brawl and Bonecrusher drones as well.

    I've always hated drones. I don't like the idea of them, and I think it completely contradicts the ideas of the Decepticons being individual characters.

    I'd really rather not see Brawl, Bonecrusher or Blackout return again, although I'm guessing there's a possibility they will. I wouldn't be surprised to see some Constructicon models re-used too.

    So, even if I hate the idea of the models being used again, it probably will happen.

    Tons, if you want to count the Protoforms.

    I'd like to see it just because it would be funny.

    The only thing that annoys me is that if there is another not-Blackout then it gives Hasbro the excuse to release that gawdaweful voyager mold yet another time. If they retool it then fine, w/e.

    I could totally see something like that happening for the big end battle. Just have all the nameless Deception troops be clones of Blackout, Brawl, and maybe some of the constructicon models, instead of the protoform troops from ROTF.
    Though I imagine we'll probably be seeing more of those guys as well.

    Or just a better toy. I would really like to see them try and get the "Blackout" model a little closer in toy form. A new Voyager would be fine by me, so long as it's good.

    That doesn't rule out "clones".

    My wish would be for a Leader Class Blackout. I remember going to Botcon in 2008, and eagerly asked that question: it was as if I was 6 again just waiting to see Unicron in TRU...in a box that would be bigger than me.

    Of course, much like my deluded 6yo mind wanting a Transformer as big as I was, the Hasbro guys didn't have any plans for a Leader-Class Blackout.
