First Look: The Twins from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Given that the first trailer for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will be out on Sunday during the Super Bowl (in the 3rd Quarter), there's not much I'm going to say about these two guys, since we'll probably be seeing them in action then. The Twins are two Autobots that transform into the Chevy Beat and Chevy Trax concept cars by themselves. Together they act like brothers and can apparently also combine into one alternate form vehicle, although we probably won't see that until during the movie sometime. Thanks to our friends at SlashFilm, we've got our first look at these two in robot form from the video game.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is again directed by action film superstar Michael Bay of Bad Boys, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, The Island, and Transformers previously. The story and screenplay for the sequel was written by Transformers writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci as well as Ehren Kruger (The Ring, The Brothers Grimm, Blood and Chocolate). Paramount is unleashing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in both IMAX and regular theaters on June 26th this summer. We'll be there!

I understand this is essentially CG concept art, but don't you think they seem somewhat cartoony in some aspect. I guess we'll see how cool they'll actually look in the trailer. Hopefully.

Oooh, so close... but...

your right zachy, but this if concept cg art from the videogame, afterall, none of the robots in the first were cartoon looking at all. so I guarantee these guys will look sick in the movie itself.

i can't wait to see the trailer,i hope it's better than the first(the bit where the autobots where trying to hide outside that house of our hero & that crap bit with bumblebee pissing on the humans.) spoilt the film big time.

These guys look bad ass! I've never paid attention to who the characters are but they kind of look like they might be comedy relief in the movie, judging by their pose's in this picture.

dosen't this site ever post news about movies that aren't comic books or sci-fi?

Ugh, nice hip hop stance they have, trying to make them look cool. No wonder the autobots keep getting their asses kicked by the Decepticons

the pic looks very cartoonish but i'm sure that's NOT the way they will look in the film. can't wait for the trailer.....as if i needed another reason to watch the super bowl. GO CARDS!

am i the only one who thinks their faces look a bit too much like Gizmos from Gremlins?

#7 I hate comedy reliefs... and #5, totally agree with the hiding around the house and pissing-bit, kinda ruined the experience, especially when you look at the movie the second time around... you go "riiiiiiight... get me out of here please..."

Hell! There will be a hell lotta Robots in that movie lets just say double the first one and double the action. That's just awesome.

Michael Bay can't wait to finish shooting this movie so he can get back to banging hot models back at his pad.

Oh for cryin' out loud...Lighten up, people! So the car "pissed" on the guy. Big deal. The guy was a jerk and it was funny. Why do so many people make such a big deal out of this scene?

These two are gonna be my favorite Autobots in the movie beside Prime, Bumblebee, and maybe Sideswipe (depending on how they make him act.) But Sideswipe is the only Autobot I've ever heard of with a twin and I doubt highly that Skids ever had a friend much less a twin anyway :/ btw does anyone know what the red one's name is because I keep hearing Mudflap but isn't that a Decepticon?

Oh hey, I think I found a better picture of these guys, what do you think? http://www.billandted.org/pics/bj/btbjbilltedpose8.jpg

I dont understand. These two "brother bots" are so clearly not even in the same league as the first film, i cant even take them seriosly in any way. its cartoon, big body, little feet, blue bulging eyes, who confirmed this, a look at the new trailer makes these two ps2 idiots impossible to be in in. literally impossible in every way, no matter how "concept" they are now lame
mr Freeze on Feb 12, 2009
lol @ 19 And I have to agree. This picture is quite the departure from their fellow Autobots.

stop making something out of nothing. those pictures are concept art from the GAME not the MOVIE. i'm pretty sure that they will look realistic in the movie. calm done. it's not that serious. your still gonna go see the movie either way so just stop.
ello on Apr 14, 2009
They are a lot of fun in the movie that is non stop action for most of the running time!

Have you seen the movie? Well, let me tell you this, I went to see 'Revenge of the Fallen' on Saturday night and was expecting it to follow in a similar way as the first movie. I could not have been more wrong. First I have to say that there was so much profanity in the movie and the violence was over the top. They sexually exploited Megan Fox by putting a camera up in all of her business when she was leaning on a motorcycle wearing a pair of poom poom shorts (daisy dukes to those that are uncertain). But I would have to say that the twins who appeared to have been influenced by the stereotypes of black culture were so offensive. I didn't get some of it at first but looking at the twins something about their features was kind of bothering me. Later I realized that it was because they looked like monkeys or gremlins and one of them had a gold tooth. They called each other names and called one of the humans a B**ch a** punk, one called the other the 'N' word and when shown symbols of their cultures and asked for a translation one said, 'man you know we can't read!' Now correct me if I am wrong but if the transformers are supposed to be of an advanced civilization then why are they demeaning theirselves by learning and expressing our most vulgar and primitive form of communication? I know that people make stuff up out of nothing but when you are part of a culture and you know the inflections that your people make, the stereotypes that are a part of your culture then you are more aware of it when you are being made fun of.

William, I do not believe that you have seen the movie and that you are in fact merely spouting out what you heard in the media and everything you refer to has been shown in theatres. I think you are the worst kind of critic, by that I mean the kind who has no real idea in their head and merely spouts off what other people have said in an attempt to sound intelligent. And also one thing you mention in your "review" of the movie never happens, I will let fellow readers guess as to what I am refering to. Pathetic.
mr Freeze on Jun 29, 2009
mr Freeze: Umm, have YOU actually watched the movie? Because I do not see any lies in Williams post. On the contrary I couldn't agree with him more. It felt like such a childrens movie and I had a hard time laughing at anything(the only people I heard laughing were some 5+ kids behind me). And what was up with the gold-tooth-monkey-bots?
Crhis on Jul 15, 2009
