    It's Volleybot since topspin has a different head.

    Topspin! I don't care if he has a different head or what the credits say. Until bay or someone else comes out and says then to me it's topspin

    Twintwist. Because he's Topspin's twin, but the twist is he has Leadfoot's head.

    If it was Topspin they wouldn't have gone to the effort of changing his head. I think some people just want it to be Topspin and think that by somehow stating it, it must be so...

    I know there have been characters in previous movies with a different name in the credits to how Hasbro marketed them, but they were early production names for them which didn't get changed after Hasbro gave them a name for the toys. This is a reuse of old animation models, from characters whose names are known as they were finalised six years ago. If they wanted Topspin they could've used his original model without sticking Leadfoot's head on it, and just called him Topspin.

    That's bit like saying "I don't care if he has Shockwave's head or they call him Nitro Zeus, to me it's KSI Boss"

    It's not Topspin. It's just a Frankenstein bot that the filmmakers thought they could get away with because 95% of the audience wouldn't notice. If it was Topspin then they would've just used the regular head.

    It's Volleybot /thread.

    Normally I'd go with the whole Volleybot scene, but I'm just gonna trust the Tfwiki and go, yeah, he can be Topspin.

    I'm starting to doubt whether he will even reappear in a later movie. It could have just been a "fun" thing to add without any real foreshadowing. If so, then it isn't Topspin. It is just a random bot that happens to share his body for the sake of cost cutting.

    There's a difference between an opinion and being bloody ignorant and wrong

    According to the votes looks more like I'm right. Ignorant or not.

    It's Topspin. The art/codename being Volleybot means nothing.

    The fact they gave him a Leadfoot (his comrade and someone who looks similar to him) head tells the theory of 'They didn't want to rig the Topspin head' is true and they tried getting away with that.

    I'm just happy for the fact that 2 of the 3 Wreckers survived AOE (RIP Leadfoot). I liked them.
