    Yes, because those are the actual proper names for them. Dino was just pulled out for the memory of a deceased Italian race car driver and I have no damn idea why Que was thought up.

    I go by the movie names, so I call them Dino and Que.

    @PrimesRule, Que was in reference to Q, the weapons inventor from the James Bond films.

    Anyway, if you meant are they similar to the G1 characters, I never give a flying scrap about similarity to G1. I walked in on Optimus and Megs and the rest of the cast the way they were in the movies and liked them, only researching afterward the similarities and differences with G1.

    No. Just I like I consider Devastator dying in the first film. The Devastator in the 2nd movie was a mistake.

    I call them by the names used, but given that the names are used interchangably between the toys and film, either set works for me. It's not like the films have managed to be consistent with their nomenclature, even in the first film.

    This argument again....ok, pull pin, ready grenade:

    Nope. Because I don't think either one of them bear any resemblance to Mirage or Wheeljack. Dino is a homage to Enzo Ferrari's son, and Que is a James Bond homage.

    That's how it was the films, that's how it is, regardless of what video games or comic books may say.

    No I don't consider them by different names. The movie universe is a completely different universe than the other incarnations of Transformers some robots just happen to share a name with a very different robot from another series. Heck Dino and Que don't even share the same paint job as Mirage and Wheeljack.

    Are Skyfire and Jetfire the same in G1?

    That's the only true answer.

    I don't find either of them important enough to care.

    Que is more like the original Wheeljack than Primejack, so yes and no. He doesn't look like Wheeljack and he wasn't called Wheeljack, but he certainly acts like the original.

    Which, of course, meant that they killed him off :(

    Because who cares?

    I think of them by their movie names. Thinking of them by their cartoon names seems silly to me when they don't act at all like the characters they would have been named for anyway.

    Only movie Optimus, Megatron, Starscream and arguably Soundwave act even remotely like the characters they were named after. Everyone else might as well have been given a completely new name as far as I'm concerned, starting with Ironhide & Bumblebee, and working all the way down the list. Because they are essentially brand-new characters anyway.

    Sam's MOM is more like the original Wheeljack than Primejack is. So that doesn't count for much.

    Nope. I'd rather have new characters than ones with Geewun names slapped on them.

    Yes, because I am comfortable with the original Tranformer names.

    Even if they aren't the original Transformers characters or even anything remotely like them?

    Yeah, I want this guy:
    [​IMG]

    to be called by this guy's name:
    [​IMG]

    Because clearly, they are the exact same guy. Even though they look and act nothing alike.

    Yeah. That is super-important to me.
