Photos of The Autobot Twins at TF3 Set

The Twins in Transformers 3 saga continues. First we had a report they are in the film then Michael Bay says "The Twins are not in T3". Now we have something which didn't have before which is photographic proof from the Transformers 3 set thanks toLeft Lane News that show two Chevy Sparks sporting the Twins' colors in stripes over a black body. As side note the source of the Twins report, Ben Brown, does verify those are the cars he spotted.
Sporting “Autobot” center caps on the wheels, these two vehicles were captured doing some pre-production work before principal filming starts in a few weeks. We think you are looking at Skidz (green) and Mudflap (orange).

Skidz is looking much sportier than in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, with new front and rear fascias, larger fenders, sportier wheels and a big wing. Mudflap was previously based on the Chevy Traxx concept, but for this installment, it appears both cars will be built off the Chevy Spark.
I think the photos pretty much prove they are in the film despite Bay's "misinformation campaign". Exactly how much screen time they have remains unknown. For all we know, it could be a cameo appearance with the cars sitting in a parking lot for a scene (but I doubt it). It should be noted, I guess, that technically Bay didn't lie. After all, the Twins as we knew them from the ROTF are not returning since they have new look. Thanks to Dave and sideswipe88 for the link.

    Despite I like the better and awesome buffed looks of these Chevy Sparks, it would be stupid to put 2 of the same identical cars in the movie with only differance in color stripes/mirrors.
    At least, use the Chevy Traxx again for Mudflap. Or did GM deside that they won't use the concept for an actual productioncar?
    I think and hope they don't have big rolls and just get cameo's.

  2. Mmmh.. just ask yourselves.. why the Twins got so black all of a sudden?
    I keep thinking that they might have become Autobots renegades and turned evil maybe joining forces with Decepticons... maybe they killed humans... after all Bumblebee was kicking them like little brats in Transformers2 already.. and on Transformers3 it seems that the world will have changed and there will be chaos with humans knowing that Earth has been invaded by Transformers aliens...

  3. I think the twins are black to blend in because the humans don't want aliens on their planet anymore. They probably were too obvious before.

  4. I highly doubt the twins have turned to Decepticons. Really doesn't make much sense. Probably just a new paint job, like Ratchet and Bumblebee.

    Disappointed to see the twins will be in the movie though. I guess it would be kind of weird to just have some characters disappear. Oh wait, they did that with Barricade already. And he was a cool character!

  5. I'm guessing the reason that the twins both are the Spark now is because that car will be entering production as part of the Chevy lineup. When ROTF was filming both were still just concept cars.

  6. maybe bay meant that the old twins are not in it in TF3 but a whole new grown up twins not as dumb and stupid as RotF.

  8. 1) I hate the spam comments.

    2) I would love it if the new paint jobs were for the better. A while back, someone said that Bumblebee would be more grown up, so maybe the Twins will be too? Or maybe, yes, perhaps they're blending in better.
    On another note, i wonder if Sideswipe's returning?

  9. Just a thought: could these two be Decepticons posings as Autobots? As we have seen the "Autobots go home" grafitti it would be safe to assume that humanity has found out about the Transformers and some are not happy. The Con's would like to make it harder for the Autobots so they send out wreckers to do as much damage as possible and to make sure the Autobots get blamed. If I were to take a guess and that the two cars are not the twins I would say these two are Runamuck and Runabout the battlechargers going about destroying cars and other things to make the Autobots look bad. As for the original twins I liked them and the people who complained about them need to get a life and a real job. I live near one of largest cities as well as a smaller one which have large diverse ethnic groups and the teenagers and well as adults talk the talk so to speak. One of my favorite saying that I hear quite often is "I am going to split his wig" as well as many others. If twins would have been voiced by Eddy Murphy, Chris Rock, Martin Lawerence, Ray Ramirez, etc. would there have been such a outcry? probably not so try and relax and enjoy a movie, and not look for a problem with everything. There are too many people doing that in this country already lets not take it too the movies as well. Twins or no twins I am looking forward to whatever Mr. Bay has to offer except for see Agent Simmons tidy whitey's again! that was just plain ugly!

  11. I think maybe Bay is showing he has a sense of humor with the twins, everyone was saying that they used black slang through the whole film,so why not in the sequel color them black now,makes sense, right?

  12. I think it's awesome that the Twins are back. They were, to me, the best part of the 2nd film.

  13. I just saw the movie the other day again and I am amused by the twins only because of their wannabe personas. To me they are just trying to be like humans but over doing it, over the top type stuff. That's all. I think if they just tone it down a bit, these two can be that much more likeable.

  14. I think some of you guys are reading way too much into it. I would bet they are black because it looks cool. I'd also bet that they are more "adult" this time so not to offend anyone this time and maybe the colors are to reflect that as well. The Traxx was never going to be a production model. Gm had a contest for people to vote between three cars the spark and trax were two of them. The spark won.
