I know it's crazy, but do you see the resemblance between the Benz and Jolt's Volt?
no, i dont think so
but in the bayformers universe anything is possible
Only in appearance. They're both high-class, friggin expensive blue cars.
Nope and they not similar jsut in colors
Seeign as we have toy listings for "Jolt" and "Luxury car", I say it's beyond doubtful. Plus, if the Mercedes is Jolt, why the heck did Hasbro color his DOTM toy stone blue and give him his old headsculpt? This stuff's made pretty far in advance.
P.S. Will people just stop calling him Q already? The odds of that being his name are about the same as me being asked to burp the National Anthem at the Apollo Theater and then having Paramount buy the movie rights to it.
That's his nickname. We don't have a name yet. Imagen if we kept calling him Wheeljack, and we were wrong?)
SERIOUSLY! They didn't even say his nickname was Q, they said he would be like the CHARACTER Q from James Bond! It's getting annoying!
Definitely not the same guy. As a character, Jolt barely exists. As product placement, Jolt's vehicle mode is the only reason he does exist.
By the way, that's not a theory. That's an observation, presented as a question. I don't think it's called a Theroy either.
They never even said that. We got "Q" from a caption that accompanied a picture that Nelson posted. The letter "G" accompanied a picture of Bumblebee too. Did anyone suggest he was undergoing a name change?
Still better and more logical than "Q".
yhea and optimus maybe megatron in this movie!this is bayformers were talkin about. we"ll just haft to wait and c.
JOLT FROM THE FUTURE.
i believe will have some time travel in this movie. hell im time travelin now!!
Nelson already said Jolt isn't in the movie. I didn't believe it at first, but I doubt Chevrolet would be cool with Bay nixing a sponsor vehicle unless he was completely getting rid of the character. And since we've already seen a new deluxe Jolt mold (as the Volt) I'm doubting even more that he's the Merc.
Now if the character's name is "Q", I would be bugged. It's okay to pay homage to a James Bond character, IE, another character casually/briefly/jokingly refers to the otherwise named character as "Q"; but when you completely steal the name, and the character traits that go with it, it's no longer an homage. It would be like introducing a new, stuffy, emotionless second in command to Optimus Prime called "Spock".
Fingers crossed for Wheeljack.
I guarantee it will not be "Q". Just imagine if Hasbro tried to trademark "Q" or even "Autobot Q" The mere suggestion would be nixed on the spot.
What experiments or mathematical calculations have you performed in order to reach that conclusion? That sounds REALLY far-fetched. And "Q" would be an awesome name, same with "Rush" for the Ferrari.
That sounds like a gamble, what're you going to put on the line? Since it's a "guarantee" and all.
Is "Q" from the Bond novels trademarked? I could see them trademarking "Autobot Q", as they've already trademarked "Autbot Ratchet."
It's not that "Q" is trademarked (even if it was, as Bond Q is a literary character and as TF Q is a toy, they can share the trademark because they're different categories), it's that it's "untrademarkable," even with a prefix. Prefixes aren't a way to get around a trademark, they're a way to strengthen an existing one.
Separate names with a comma.
