    Blaze Master is a helicopter.

    Springer is a military tiltrotor VTOL.

    As far as I remember the only thing HASBRO said about the design was that they added a third mode just for the sake of making a decent toy.

    Have either of their alt-modes been confirmed?

    We've seen Springer's Legends class figure, and it looks a lot like Blaze Master there...

    I'm not saying I want it to be G1. I have no problem with the design of Sideswipe I think its cool. I just don't think that having more popular names like Sunstreaker, Wheeljack, Hound, and Prowl would be better instead of Skids and Mudflap and Jolt or whoever else.
    That's fine I don't have a problem with them bringing humor into the movie, but didn't Bay say this one is more "darker" than the first.

    Yes he did, and that's probably why we need the twins, to even stuff a bit.

    ABOUT the new characters I think that the more the better, sure it's cool to have old homages but for every design or name resgistered it's another little piece of the franchise growing, and that's a good thing.

    The more I look at Blaze Master, the more I think he'll be repainted as Springer. His alt-mode isn't the same as the Legends or RH figures, but the bot-mode does fit, imo. Even the head sculpt looks like what we've seen of Springer's design so far (looks like he's got a gas mask on).

    Makes sense. I'm just frustrated with the fact that I've seen the twins in the trailer and it looks like they have pretty decent screentime while i think that my boy Sideswipe might not even survive and if that happens i will really be pissed. I'm still pissed about Jazz dying in the first one lol.

    Confirmed? ...Yes? We've seen them both, if that's what you mean.

    I saw a shopping cart full of the Deluxes today at WM, along with the ROTF Robot Heroes.

    I didn't see Ravage, unfortunatley...

    Jetfire is looking more and more like FAIL every time I see him. I hope he looks better in person, or this is going to be a huge downer...

    Or even to the rear. It looks like his legs can rotate around 180 degrees just under those wheels on his thighs.

    I'm not referring to the third mode, it's the design elements in the bot mode, i.e. the headlights and grille looking things that were taken into consideration because of his Earth mode. I guess since he's not a protoform, they decided to go with that cheat.

    That ice cream truck is now the only guaranteed must have form rotf. It even looks a little like the animated style.

    These new ones are really cool. I don't like Arcee as much as I like the other bots' shown, I think Jolt is the nicest, since Swerve is just a repaint.

    I also like the Twin's combining ice cream truck mode! Very cute.

    I didn't find bumble bee all that endearing myself, his hideous visage does not help at all.

    I find the Ice cream truck twins a little too tempting. That disturbs me.

    I actually think Jolt looks really, really, nice. I can't wait to get my hans on him. Just one thing.... huge arm panels and unpainted arms on the IC Twins FTL.

    Last I knew, the Corvette that Sideswipe turns into isn't ever going into production, and the only reason they ever built any working models was specifically for the movie.

    As for why Sideswipe himself isn't red, it's the same exact reason Prime doesn't have more red than he does. Red is not a fun color to film. Not impossible, but it definitely isn't fun to work with. Even more so when dealing with green screen work.

    As for why the red Sideswipe repaint/retool is called Swerve...all I can really say is it's probably just for variety, and they may have a themed Sunsteaker repaint in the works too. At least it's better than calling it "Magna-Glow" Sunstreaker, or something like that. In the end, those who want it as a separate character already have a name they can use for it, and those who want it as Sideswipe can call it that (kinda like Universe Tankor/Octane).

    If they were both Deluxe class figures on their own, I would agree. Though as they each are about Scout class size (just guessing on this, tbh), I'm willing to forgive them for their simplicity.
