Uh-oh! Those controversial robots from Transformers 2 will be back

We thought we were done with these two! Skids and Mudflap, everyone's not-so-favorite offensive robots, will apparently be back for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Michael Bay lied to us!

He said we'd never have to see their mechanical faces again, but that wasn't the whole truth. The Twins have gotten a makeover, and they'll be more annoying than ever.

In Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Skids and Mudflap took the form of the Chevy Trax and the Chevy Beat, but neither of those vehicles will appear in the sequel. Instead, they've been replaced with two Chevy Sparks, which are "conveniently" painted orange and green. (We smell another controversy!)

The new Twins were spotted on the Transformers 3 set during preproduction, and even though their exteriors are different, the colors are the same, and their Autobot emblems are intact. This has Skids and Mudflap written all over it.

This isn't the first time that Bay's fibbed about a character's return. Remember when he said that Megatron wouldn't appear in Revenge of the Fallen? At least Megatron is a character people love to hate. He's the Autobot's archnemesis. He serves a purpose. What do the Twins bring to the table exactly?

Transformers: Dark of the Moon opens in theaters on July 1, 2011.
