    Just another toy for Hasbro to sell. There were plenty in the first movie game.

    Unfortunately with all the production issues they had (the writers strike, LaBeouf hand injury, some minor injuries on set, Paramount pressure to not postpone the movie, Paramount pressure to have a short theatrical cut)... there is a lot that they cut and shortened compared to both the game and novels.
    Transformers3 must not be rushed, it must be fresh and new with all the possible refinements. Transformers2 lacks some refined scenes that the first movie had, there are things that should have been adjusted. The CGI is perfect, action scenes are much better than the first movie but many things are missing. For example.. when Sam gets examined by TheDoctor and blocked by Megatron... why Mikaela and Sam just stay there with Starscream doing nothing to them? It's out of character. They are Decepticons, evil.. they don't care if Sam is asking them to not hurt his girlfriend, Starscream in that scene should have started slowly torturing Mikaela with Sam screaming for help.. and then when Optimus and Bumblebee attack to save Sam the scene would have included like Bumblebee saving Mikaela from Starscream before she gets killed...
    It would have made the scene a lot stronger than the way it ended up to be in the theatrical cut. I can't believe that Michael Bay didn't think about anything like that for that scene.
    I hope that Transformers3 will feature a lot stronger and darker scenes that don't feel rushed at any points.

    What Trailbreaker said. There are other TF toys that aren't in the movie either like Stratosphere and all or most of the "Scout" class. You can usually tell by their head molds or color schemes. With breakaway it's his head AND coloring. Come on, GOLD and BABY BLUE with an almost ridiculous camo design (which is cool looking but not practical) ? :wtf:lol Definitely NOT an "IN" the movie robot.

    It would've been cool too see him in the movie because that style plane (F-35) can hover like a helicopter. It's the new "Harrier" so to speak. I wish they would've had an Apache heli TF.

    The reason he wasnt used is much like Wreckage from number one. He was to be used but becuse of issues he was cut and became just a toy. He is the only Autobot in the game you can play that wa never in the movie which just shows he at one point was ment to be there or at least have a small roll but didnt make the final cut.
