Others went on to ask if their disappearance will be explained, but so far no replies. Like most things at this point in the game, this should be taken with a grain of salt. However, neither of their previous vehicle modes have been on set.

There are a few characters that have disappeared in films, not to surface again. FOr instance, most infamously, in the first movie Barricade disappears (though to be fair, he does surface in the third movie). In the second movie, Arcee and Elita-1 are shown to be shot down by Decepticons, while Chromia takes cover behind a building, but that's the last we see of her. Skids and Mudflap disappear without a trace after they fight Devastator. Jolt combines Jetfire's remains with Optimus, but that's the last he's seen.
It's only in ancillary media that anyone finds out why they go missing. The writers and/or producers of the movies state that all three bike sisters were killed (though the comic books take a different tack and show them all as alive). Skids and Mudflap were actually cut from the third movie, and in the comic adaptation, they are both killed (along with Ironhide) attacking Sentinel Prime when he goes on his rampage. The comics also show that Jolt was killed during events that occur between movies.
So it's not implausible that even if Mirage/Dino and SIdeswipe aren't in AOE, we'll find out why via other means, given that there's a very low likelihood it'll be explained in the movie itself.

I was disappointed that Dino never had a toy and that the US market got shafted on Que and Leadfoot. I had to scrape up a Takara version of Leadfoot to get all three deluxe wreckers. Sure they had the Human Alliance version, along with Roadbuster, but no HA Topspin in ANY form and no deluxe Leadfoot in the US was a letdown. I wish they'd be consistent. If it's available in Japan it should be available in the US, and if you have members of character groups or teams in one line you should have all of those characters available.

Wasn't Barricade in the Execution/Trophy scene during DOTM? He was around Soundwave and the lot of them. I think when Prime showed up he got sliced in half while he was landing and kicking ass.
Sucks that Dino and Sideswipe won't be in the film. Not having Ratchet present at all is a real kick in the face. He is a more core character just as Prime, Bee, and Ironhide are.

About Sideswipe: I simply don't care about him, i just hope we see he's death in one of the official prequels.
According to Bay itself, Barricade was heavy wounded, yet he survived and was teleported back to Cybertron.Optimus Prime007 wrote:I think when Prime showed up he got sliced in half while he was landing and kicking ass.

As for Barricade, I'm not sure where you heard that: Barricade was clearly killed by a human sniper round to the face at the climax of Dark of the Moon. If Bay says otherwise, then he is a lunatique.

I think you mean Shockwave.
