They should've made the twins red and yellow and call them Sideswipe and Sunstreaker. The blue Volt would've been a nice Tracks. Then the silver car could've been Wheeljack.
Because in bot mode, Skidz actually resembles his g1 self quite a good bit. Doors as wings, rear of car because feet and legs, hood makes the front, etc. The color doesnt match but even the alt mode somewhat resembles his g1 alt mode.
They can't use sideswipe because I believe that name is already taken by the Centenial Corvette concept car. Sunstreaker, meh, I never really cared for his persona anyway, I'd rather not see him in the movie. A "hot-shot pretty boy" is the last thing this movie needs, people are already complaining that the movie has too much ego because of Bay (I don't agree, but you can't stop close-minded gits making themselves look crazy for going ballistic over a movie that isn't even finished).
Besides, to be fair, renaming the twins in this movie sunstreaker and sideswipe would cause an uproar because the models picked for the twins are hardly sports cars.
