    Read this and save everyone a whole lot of trouble of going through it again.


    I think its most likely the Twins weren't in DOTM for the same reason Jolt really return. They weren't as popular as Hasbro expected to be, and since there wasn't going to be a big merchandising push on the characters (I imagine the massive shelfwarming of the twins figures didn't help this) compared to others meant that there was no point in giving them even more than a minimum of screentime. Furthermore, I think that, combined with the "bad blood" regarding their characterizations, led to them more or less being removed completely, which tied into a pretty good press buzz for the whole "try and find them" angle.

    Except that would have backfired because the only two reactions from the general populace would have been:

    1. "Best part part of the movie because those idiots died", i.e. people would have liked the scene for all the wrong reasons
    2. "Once again Michael Bay displays his true racist nature by killing off the black stereotypes"

    The whole thing was a catch-22 no matter how it was handled

    They weren't in the movie because anyone with half a brain hated them.

    I was told sometime a while ago that they were actually in the movie but they were in a room watching Spongebob the whole time. Sentinel killed them offscreen on his little rampage though.

    Naw, they summoned a couple horses at his feet and rode off into the sunset, giggling "Ah-HYUCK-HYUCK!".

    I liked them. Does this mean I don't have half a brain?

    Bay didn't want to offend people again, plus not a lot of people enjoyed the characters. I like Skids but can't tolerate Mudflap. Anyways, in the comics, they were supposed to die after Sentinel killed Ironhide. Sentinel aims the rust cannon at Bumblebee, Skids jumps in and takes the shot. Mudflap goes into a rage and gets owned by Sentinel. *"TRIPLE KILL!"*

    First of all the twins are in the film, but you have to look closely, also they even filmed some scenes at the post office here in Chicago with them driving but those were cut out.....but as for this directors cut????!!!!!!!, I want to know if this does exist or its made up, because if there is some type of copy out there with bonus material Im going to go insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    From where my knowledge takes me there is no such thing as a directors cut..........PLEASE SOMEONE CONFIRM!!!!!!
