    Never referred to by name in the entire movie, but is the only new autobot we see transform (three times, actually). We hear Hound's name around four times, I heard Drift call Crosshairs by name on the ship. Never heard 'Drift'.

    It's seen on the satellite feed of KSI, but never mentioned out loud, yes.

    Probably is in other scenes that were not used in the film or summit xD

    Pretty sure Sideswipes name is only mentioned once in ROTF, and never in DOTM.

    Also Skids name is never used. Mudflap was though.

    I was wondering about that too. Possibly Drift had joined up with the Autobots post-DOTM but before the alliance with humans ended.

    I was wondering the same thing. Anyone else wonder why Drift's alt mode is a car that's meant for anything but drifting? I would really liked to have seen him as some sort of Japanese drift car. Three (financially) successful movies and they still didn't agree to having their cars displayed? :banghead:

    Ok. So I wasn't losing my mind. We never saw Crosshairs or Hound transform onscreen. I only remember Drift transforming once though...and that was when he changed into the helicopter. Don't remember him transforming into the car.

    I feel like bay wanted to make it a point to have hound be called hound atleast 10 times in the movie, and drift and crosshairs names only get mentioned or seen once, as he wanted hound to become as popular as bee and prime, as he seemed like he really liked hound in the interviews for the movie
