    That sucks. :(  I hope Barricade shows up again though.

    Well, at least that Decepticon that we only knew as the semi-transformed lump of machinery that formed Devastator's left fist will still be in the sequel. I mean, the rail gun didn't hit anywhere near there, right? He just HAS to be in.

    My nerd rage will froth if he is not.

    Well, at least they remembered Jolt. I half expected somebody to say in an interview "We had a Chevy Volt in the last movie?" At least Jolt isn't dead, that at least gives him the option of doing stuff in spin off fiction that is sure to exist for years to come. He and Barricade could team up in a comic. XD

    They could fight against those turquoise and aquamarine F15 seekers and Reflector 'bots numbers 4 through 10. The main antagonist could be Off-Screen Robot Next In Line After Spike, Jazz, Bumblebee, and Cliffjumper On The Unicron Drop Into The Acid Vat Conveyor. I always wished they could flesh that character out more.

    Jolt not being in TF 3 doesn't bother me. We didn't get to know him, so I don't see it as a huge loss.

    really? I'm confused... the fan base confuses me I mean I can get the bitching over MP Roddie even if I dont agree with some people.... but such rage to defend product placement for GM's hybrid

    [​IMG]

    and to slam this awesome German car... such logic boggles my mind. Also I'd say the merc has far more going for it even with the questionable head.

    Whatevs. Robodude had like 10 seconds of screen time in total or something like that. It's no great loss.

    ...which would, of course, double his screen time.

    I wanna be mad, but after they didn't bring Barricade back in ROTF, I honestly am not surprised by this...

    All this random Twin hate in a thread about Jolt is awesome.

    But it really is too bad about Jolt. I actually think that it would be pretty funy to have someone like Lennox or Epps mention casually that Jolt is off hunting Barricade.

    Couldn't really care less, but does anyone have that nice clear screencap of Jolt without the large red sign on top of him? Need reference pics for my custom and I can't find any really good ones on the net.

    Well, if this really IS true, here's how i hope he is said dying:
    In between ROTF and TF3, NEST gets a transmission of Shockwave saying he'll come to earth, like the fallen in ROTF. The autobots split sam and mikaela up. Mikaela gets JOlt to watch her. A Decepticon corners them. They die. Mention it in TF3, and cue sam and prime grieving fr about 2 or 3 minutes.

    Aw poor Jolt =( oh well it's not like he was a major character or anything lol.

    He'll be going to the same place that the majority of the G1 season two bots went between season 2 and the movie xD

    I don't feel surprise. Jolt was an unnecessary character in TFs 2. All he did was transfer Jetire's body parts on Prime, but that was it!!

    Meh, Jolt was a cool design. But the way they kinda forced him into the movie at the last second killed it for me a little bit.

    I think the final sequence would have been better without him. It would have been more impactful if Jetfire's parts would have been pulled to Prime by a supernatural force (Matrix?) rather than a half-assed background character they needed to give screen time to in hopes you'd know he was there.

    Again, I think Jolt was a good design, I just dislike the way they shoved him in the movie.
