    Okay, I just want to say first of all, this isn't a "Where are they?" or "Are we getting them?" threads. This is a thread regarding their possible alt modes.

    Okay, as we all know, Mirage, Wheeljack and Soundwave all have vehicle molds that aren't sold by Chevrolet and GMC. I mean, all the cars, pick up trucks and trucks we've gotten in the line so far are either property of GMC or Chevrolet, with the exceptions of Optimus and Megatron.

    So, do you think these guys will "renewed" designs for their vehicle modes? Like Sideways in Revenge of the Fallen, his alternate mode had to be altered so that it wasn't the exact same as the Audi R8. Do you think this will happen to Wheeljack, Mirage and Soundwave?

    I mean, it's a possibility. Discuss.

    Not to Soundwave. I find it hard to believe that they would make an HA and not let it look close to the actual car. Maybe Wheeljack will have a realistic alt mode too.

    Mirage, though? Yeah, guaranteed repeat of Sideways, Mattel has the rights to make Ferrari toys.

    It makes me nervous, but then why go to the trouble to give a character a name change paying homage to the make (Mirage- Dino) without getting the licensing to make a toy of the real car?

    I rather doubt that it'll happen, especially with Soundwave (and therefore WheeljaQ, since his vehicle mode is from the same company), since he's getting an HA figure. Come to think of it, I wonder if that's partly why Sideways didn't get an HA.

    Soundwave will be based on a Citroen 2CV, Dino will look like a Lambretta, and Wheeljaq will be a skateboard.

    Soundwave will have the correct alt mode, or they wouldn't have bothered to make a HA. Therefore, Qjack will probably get his aswell. As for the mirage, I highly doubt it

    Mirage is such a damned good-looking car. It would be a shame if he weren't accurate.
