    If Hasbro/Takara does not do Mirage due to Mattel's exclusive use of Ferrari's likeness, I'm sure a 3rd party will make one.

    It'd be easier to repaint DOTM Sideswipe and give him a new head.

    So in answer to your question, no. Que/Wheeljack and Dino/Mirage look nothing alike.

    I'm not entirely convinced this thread is real.

    Damn guys, I know the question is a little old and the grammar sucked, but do we really need to tell the guy to stop posting all together?

    If his content wasn't consistently of the same caliber, I'd feel differently.

    You know, first thought was "no way" but looking at the two, it is possible. Give him Prime Arcee's blades and you have weapons.

    That said, I don't think the Wheeljack toy would be a good choice at all. His shoulders and legs are rather restricted. Mirage needs to strike some action poses not possible with Wheeljack.

    Personally I think people should just find another thread to post in if they don't like this one.

    Hasbro has gotten pretty good at making vehicle modes look real enough while still just generic enough to get away with it. If Hasbro decides not to make a toy of Mirage/Dino from DOTM, it's likely not because of the vehicle mode. Which means that making him a red repaint of Que/Wheeljack with a new head and weapons is almost certainly not gonna happen if Hasbro DOES decide to do Mirage.

    I could see him having a similar transformation scheme, but not a simple retool or head-swap. It'd have to be a completely brand new mold.

    ROTF Sideways says hi. Officially, the toy (the Deluxe, anyway) is not an Audi R8, though it bears a close resemblance. They didn't seem to get any beef over that, so they'll most likely [literally] cut some corners with Mirage's alt. mode.

    Maybe Mattel don't like Ferrari look-a-like's either, and have told Hasbro it would be easy enough for them to prove such a Ferrari look a like goes against their exclusive deal with Ferrari.

    Toy + Transformers packaging, + DOTM Footage = easy proof what Hasbro were trying to do, whether or not what they're doing breaches Mattel's contract with Ferrari

    Dude, Mirage is already available in the RPM/Speed Stars sub-line. I really don't think Mattel cares about what Hasbro puts out that much.

    No. Not even close. You'd be better off using TF07 Cliffjumper if you have to go that route.

    Can't we wait and see what the Movie Trilogy line brings us?

    I'm hopeful for entirely new molds of movie characters such as Jazz and Ratchet.

    Maybe some missed characters are scheduled to appear as well? Who knows.
