    I was just fiddling with my Transformers Animated Rodimus Minor and thought to myself, "You know with Rodimus out of the way, the ferrari being called Mirage in the toy line and them saying Mirage is now called Dino, I wonder how fan would look at the Deluxe DOTM Ferrari now (if there is a ferrari toy)?"

    So would you call the ferrari if it comes out...

    Rodimus, because of fan choise for a red sports car.

    Mirage, because the toy line says so.

    or

    Dino, because Micheal Bay says so.

    I bet the toy will either be Mirage or Dino.

    Before the new name was "confirmed" to be Dino, I was speculating he was going to be renamed Rodimus though.

    EDIT: Do you mean what I'll personally call it? Whatever it is in the movie.

    If he's called Dino in the movie then that's what I'll call him. His name doesn't matter to me anyways since he's just an independent character. Dino would at least make him more of his own character then using the name of Mirage who he doesn't relate to.

    Its like the Wheelie scenario, his toys were Wheelie and Bay refers to him as Wheels

    Just go with Mirage as it'll probably fit with most canon material

    The movie's not out yet, we haven't even seen the deluxe toy, and the only info we have is from a source that's been proven to be unreliable time and time again, so how can we possibly answer this question yet? I'll figure it out after I've seen the movie and have the toy in hand.

    Assuming I get him at all, I'll call him Mirage regardless of what they decide to call him in the movie (probably helps that I don't believe anything that comes from Nelson). Though if he's ever repainted purple, I'll get that and call it Dino :ev: 

    Also, he's getting a toy, so please stop worrying about it. Have....some....patience....

    Whatever they call him in the movie, but if he's called Dino I probably won't even buy him.

    Mirage, since that's what he's called in the majority of supplemental stuff to the actual movie. Such as the game. And comics. And I'm betting even the toy.

    I'll probably call him Mirage, since I don't think I like the name Dino for a Transformer, and since the character isn't being called Rodimus in any of the fiction, as far as I know. I do like the name Rodimus for that vehicle mode, though.

    Dino. It's a silly name for a TF but its much better than a name regurgitation.

    I'll go with Mirage because thats who he is. Dino is kind of a gay name for a Transformer.

    I think they should have Spelled his name Dyno. As in referring to a dynamometer. As a Ferrari he'd have the HP to max out certain low budgets dyno's. Just my thought.

    It only sorta matters if they bother to name the red car on-screen.
