Michael Bay Offers 25K to Anyone Who Spots the 'Twins' in 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' If you still don"t think that Michael Bay axed the infamed "Twins," Skids and Mudflap, from "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" - the director is prepared to put his money where his mouth is.

You are watching: Transformers revenge of the fallen twins


Transformers Dark of the Moon the Twins
Arguably one of the the majority of critically derided sections of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was the inclusion of the comedy relief team/Chevy idea cars, The Twins. Famously, the pair was criticized for their (arguably) racist depiction - one that Bay and also Co. supposedly further embelliburned, past the original Kurtzguy and Orci draft, via gold teeth and also various other controversial additions. Even the most dedicated Transformers fans would certainly argue that, at the incredibly leastern, The Twins weren"t particularly funny.

As an outcome, it"s no surpincrease that the Internet exploded as soon as reports started to surconfront that the pair were ago for the next installment of the robots in disguise - Transformers: Dark of the Moon.


While the rerotate of The Twins, aka Syoungsters and Mudflap, has actually been long-rumored, director Michael Bay has invested the much better part of a year debunking any type of reports that shown the controversial brothers would rerevolve. Given that Bay had admitted, and subsequently rectified, a lot of the mistakes from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in preparation for Transformers: Dark of the Moon, fans and also critics aprefer were prepared to relocate on.

That is till speculation was reignited once AICN"s early review of a Transformers: Dark of the Moon rough-cut hinted (perhaps mistakenly) that The Twins (aka "street-smart bit robots”) were in fact returning members of the cast:


"Yes, they’re back also, but let’s simply say they’re toned dvery own.”

It wasn"t long before Bay addressed the slip-up in a short article on his official Shoot for the Edit forum - politely debunking the information (Capone provided the film an over-all favorable evaluation after-all), while standing by his prior place that Skids and also Mudflap are not in the film.

"After the internet posting of a nice review by someone that saw Transformers Dark of the Moon, the writer had not been clear on one point. He misproclaimed that the Twins are in the film. They are not.

So I am giving a $25,000 REWARD to anyone who deserve to discover them percreating in Transformers 3, on July 1, once the movie opens up."

As a result, AICN easily updated the testimonial with clarification on the scandalous detail:


“Just to 100 percent clear, I’m not referring about the ‘The Twins’ here; they are a lot of certainly not in this film. I’m talking about Wheelie (Tom Kenny, who likewise voiced Skids in ‘Revenge of the Fallen’) and also various other comparable smaller robots, who act like streetwise adolescents.”

However, Bay"s adamant insurance claim that The Twins are not back (coupled through Capone"s updated review), still wasn"t sufficient for some fans - that claim that the controversial "streetwise" bots can be watched in the film"s latest trailer (at the 0:40 mark) - especially the last two cars in a line of Autobots.

Check out the photo listed below to see what all the fuss is about (click to enlarge).

While Bay never explicitly denies that the bots in the trailer are The Twins (in alt-mode), he does stand by his prior insurance claim that the 2 are not in the final film.

"The Twins are not in the movie. You will not find them everywhere. Trailer homes occasionally usage shots that are not in the movie! End story I"m done wasting my time this!"

It wouldn"t be the first time that the director has spreview misindevelopment around that will, or will not, appear in a Transformers film; however, it"d be crazy for Bay to stir up this debate aobtain - for the sake of keeping fans guessing about the movie. When Bay denied that Megatron was in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, it remained in attempt to run damage regulate on leaked information about the plot - so that moviegoers would certainly still have actually a few surprises at the theater.


Additionally, it wouldn"t be the first time that Bay used incredibly equivalent vehicles (and also robot models) in the series - as the director fundamentally resupplied Blackout"s robot mode and MH-53J Pave Low III helicopter architecture for Grindor (a Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter) in the woodland scene of Revenge of the Fallen - while the original character"s body rested at the bottom of the Laurentian Abyss. Similarly, even though Barricade disshowed up at the finish of Transformers, the protodevelop Deceptsymbols (featured in the Egyptian desert battled) bore a similar look to the original character"s develop.

Obviously these comparisons are not definitive however, considering Bay is making among the a lot of expensive movies of the summer, it stands to reason that he could reuse assets (cars, deindications, etc) from prior movies. However, provided the director"s stoic insurance claim the twin bots are not in the film, coupled via Bay"s attempts to rectify prior misabsorbs this installment, it"s safe to say The Twins, specifically, will certainly not be seen in Dark of the Moon.

Maybe we"ll check out alt-mode Chevy concept cars or various other, equally obnoxious "streetwise" robots, however we severely doubt they"ll answer to the names, Skids or Mudflap.
