Transformers 2 Skids

Oct. 10, 2008by: James Thoo

Some intrepid photographer has managed to snag some pictures of the cast and crew of TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN in Arizona at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Apparently if the plates are to be believed there will be an Autobot called "Skids" in the movie, that is a Chevy Beat. And I know what you're all thinking: what the hell is a Skids?

I'm a pretty big TRANSFORMERS geek and I have never in my life heard of this dude. Wikipedia proves me wrong, but even so; what the hell? What's with movie writers throwing in the most obscure characters from the canon as possible? I swear there is literally no excuse for this movie not having Soundwave or Blaster or Ultra Magnus now. Not unless somewhere in this character's history is a mechanical malfunction where he undresses any chicks that are close to him. And then Michael Bay puts Megan Fox close to him. In which case, well played, sir.

thembones: "Why use up characters when you know this is going to be a franchise"

Because writers who AREN'T retarded don't kill off every goddamn character they make?

SOME JUST DON'T GET IT

The reason for tossing in obscure characters and not using popular characters is quite simple. SEQUELS. Why use up characters when you know this is going to be a franchise. You can't shoot the wad all time. You've got to save something for the future rounds. This thing is going to HUGE and so will anything that comes after it. Bay is setting down the blueprint for probably 2-3 more movies and having great characters is the only thing that will give it legs. You can pack in as many bots

You can pack in as many bots as possible but in the long run, what will you have left to fill the theatres in the future? Zippp. This way, he's ensuring on long-term fan loyalty. Just Boffo Bay! Keep up the good work.

i think it makes sense to use obscure characters. that way you dont have crazy fanboys complaining that Rodimus prime wouldn't say that or shock wave would do that. like they do with star wars and all comic based movies
