    Cool So, Dino & Sideswipe won't appear in TF4?

    Michael or Nelson, will you no longer give roles to either Sideswipe or Dino? Dino/Mirage had great potential and had one of the best Autobot design.

    First bad decision I can point at M. Bay (if it is true), Dino and Sidswipe had the best looking bot models.

    i still think Bay really missed a very good opportunity to have the real twins sideswipe and Sunstreaker in the movie-verse.

    I believe we will have the toy version anyways, like happen before, just "age of extinction" package. Those characters are too cool to just skip them.

    Sideswipe, maybe.. Dino, I seriously doubt it cause they had issues with the Ferrari license last time..

    Dino is probably not in the movie cause his voice actor passed away. RIP.

    as for Sideswipe that Green Corvette is already there so it would make no sense having him. I'm glad he is gone, it gives a new character his place and he looks a lot cooler!

    I never liked Sideswipe. Especially the way he killed off Sideways so easily in ROTF. Though I have his toy (I'm a toy collector).
    That Corvette is not a very marketable car anyway. I don't see a problem with him being discontinued.

    The other Corvette that will be in TF4 (the green one) however, is easily a more marketable Corvette. So it's a better choice.

    I am fine with Dino, stupid TF name anyways. The design(car & robot)Will be missed. Same can be said about sideswipe
    There once was a tale about a man who can turn invisible.....

    Maybe I'm thinking too hard here, but did Nelson answer "Correct" to the question about "giving roles" or was he just agreeing with "Dino/Sideswipe had potential and the best Autobot design"?

    And if Dino and Swipe are gone, I will miss Swipe. I'd like for their absence to at least be explained. I don't like when characters just disappear. I still wish we got an explanation on the Twins and Jolt.

    Our favorite background characters will be missed dearly.

    If not in the movie, then hope there is a book just like last time with more info.. a prequel comic would be nice as well! maybe they can explain missing characters there and they can cover the years between the movies.

    I think the simplest explanation is that the World is just big... too big.

    Sometimes certain Bots may have gone to other parts of the World -- having their own adventures away from the main action, and that's why we don't see them again. In comic books these often happens. In fact in the Avengers for example, you don't see them together all the time.

    yes, but they dont just dissapear for no reason without explanation. at least kill them off. if you need to trim the ranks, at least give them some sort of closure. we keep bringing back to life the same redundant characters while we throw away underused ones. non tf fans that actually saw the other movies might think its stupid. heck, im a tf fan and i think its stupid. having some sort of underying logic makes the movie more credible.

    this is part of the reason after a couple of viewings, i stop watching DOTM and ROTF and just jump to the action scenes. i lose respect for the movie as a whole and just Watch the 'good parts'. I cant do that with movies like avatar, or lord of the rings. i can still Watch the whole LOTR trilogy and not have to jump scènes. the Nolan batman trilogy as well. with TF, i just Watch the fight and transformation scènes. its sad but the movie as a whole is just uninteresting after a few views

    At least they should release some good renders of them. We couldn't even get a good shot of some of them before they got written off.
