Candy Confirms TF Twins

As shown a few months ago, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has a tie-in promotion with M&Ms. The pack below, one of seven designs that the candy packages produced by the company will have, is labeled "The Twins" confirming that the Chevy Beat (Skids) and Trax are the Twin Autobot characters mentioned way back in June on the call sheets. Thanks to Phil for the picture.


Update: From TFW2005 is an image of the Snickers TF wrapper, this one showing Bumblebee.

  2. I think that Skids's concept art and Trax robot's high resolution cocnept art should have been released before that thing.

  3. Yeah the buck tooth and unsymmetrical armor kinda reminds me of Mater from that Disney movie Cars. I hope it's not a rip off. I was kinda expecting the Twins to be childish and have sibling rivalry of some sort. Since they start off as one ice cream truck and later scan and seperate into 2 seperate vehicles. O well let's see. O and your welcome! lol

  4. Hotness. Utter hotness.

    I'm not so crazy about the M&M "design" as I am about the concept. For weeks now, the confirmation of Sideswipe being in the movie has had me privately hoping that Sunstreaker will make an appearance as well...after all, they are The Twins. As to one of the twins being gold...well...Sunstreaker's G1 ego might certainly make that a reality, but I'd like to think that Bay's got better taste than to make one of the Autobots a sparkly goldster.

    Of course, if he can pull off the gold paintjob with taste, class, and utter sexiness, then I'm all for it. :)

  8. I think we can safely assume by this then, that the Trax is going to be named....Tracks. Why? Few reasons:

    1) Tracks was a G1 character
    2) Skids and tracks are both things a tire leaves behind, and makes sense they'd used the name in a tongue-in-cheek way.
    3) The Volt's named Jolt (Volt/Jolt), so why not have Trax/Tracks?
    4) Skids and Cliffjumper just doesn't roll off the tongue when used in a phrase as well as Skids and Tracks. I can picture Optimus saying "Skids, Tracks, take 'em!" or something to that effect.

    5 bucks says I'm right. Anyone else in?

  11. "5 bucks says I'm right. Anyone else in?"

    It's not Tracks and Skids, it's gonna be Mader and Skids, and he's gonna drive in circles backwards and tip tractors over!

  14. Well, I just realized that their head armor is identical to the image of that orange dipshit-looking Autobot head that was leaked a few months ago.

    Now I'm off to kill myself.

  15. I originally thought that Tracks is Trax robot's name, but it's impossible. Tracks was in G1 race car, not similar car than Chevrolet trax or Chevrolet Beat. Skids is Beat, but I don't think anymore that Trax robot is Tracks.
