ROTF M&Ms Possibly Hint at "Twins" Robot Modes?

A new image has surfaced of a bag of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen movie tie-in M&Ms, which were reported some time ago as part of the film's food tie-in marketing strategy. The image is of interest mostly because it gives us a hint at what the "Twins" characters, one who transforms into a green Chevrolet Beat and another who turns into a red Chevrolet Trax, may look like.

The design elements of the red "Tracks" M&M resemble the small piece of concept art that was leaked some time ago and the design of the green "Beat" character (rumoured to be named Skids, based on the vehicle's license plate seen in spy photos from filming) matches the Trax robot (perceptive fans may notice the buck-teeth)

The bag is labelled "collector's pack 7 of 7" - meaning other bags of M&Ms probably sport other M&M-style movie characters.

I like how Tracks says "at least were not identical"

Makes me feel like Skids will sound like Larry The Cable Guy

Just as long as he don't make any quotes that will remind us of Mater from Cars.

A gold tooth? Really? Well lets just hammer another nail into the coffin. Im also concerned about the flavor. Its one of those combos that might be the best thing ever or just make people puke.

Strawberry Peanut Butter M&Ms would probably make you throw up anyway...

as much as the possibility of jar-jar like characters appearing in the movie scares the crap out of me, i realize there's just no way they'd ramp up the campiness of the movie that much with something like that. i'm going to withhold judgment until more evidence is presented.

these are just pics of m&m's with transformer parts attached to them after all. it would be impossible for them not to look a little goofy.

Wait...Strawberry AND peanut butter together? Eewww...

Now strawberries and chocolate...I'm all for that! Strawberry Whoppers are decent BTW, but peanut butter Whoppers are the best ever.

Yeah, my main concern is the Strawberried part of the M&M. Please let the is be a fake bag. But i doubt the one of the twins would have a gold tooth lol.
