Welcome. Stick by the forum rules and feel free to discuss all things transformers.

As for your question, maybe. Someone on here might be.

Technically they aren't twins. In fact, she's one Autobot controlling three remote bodies.

I myself have a interesting the Next Generation episodes of Star Trek.

As for BotCon, this year would be the year to go, as it'll be a BotCon like no other.

Yes but I use the term Arcee Twins because Lennox even calls them that by name in the movie. But I didn't know they were one Autobot, so thank you for that knowledge.

He actually says, "Arcee! Twins!" telling both Arcee and the Twins (Skids and Mudflap) to engage Sideways. Though, Skids nad Mudflap couldn't do much since they crashed and started bickering with each other.

Yep, just like G1 Reflector.

Then they messed up the subtitles because there is no comma or exelamation point between Arcee and twins. But now recalling that scene the way Lennox pronouces the line would lead me to agree with you.

That, or he said the line too fast.

Yep. Chromia and Elita-1 only have personalities in their toy bios. In the fiction, they're mere extensions of Arcee.

Why, of her three components, only Elita-1 ever spoke in the ROTF movie, yet her voice actress was credited as voicing Arcee.

There's a great telling of the story of how Arcee ended up in this three bodied situation in IDW's "Transformers: Tales of the Fallen #6" all of those comics were like spotlight issues for ROTF characters. That's Aree's issue, and a good read. They're all illustrated by Alex Milne; same guy who did our new main page background btw ;-). That issue particularly is well worth its cover cost. Welcome to the forums folks!
