    with wheeljack and mirage in this movie wouldnt it have been better to use the two nascars for them? the blue and white #48 for mirage and the green and white #88 for wheeljack.that would have been allmost dead on to their G1 colors. to me that would have been awesome! what do you guys and gals think?

    No, they're fine the way they are. Having the typically aristocratic Mirage be a ferrari is a genius move.

    Character transcends color.

    I still think the Wreckers would have made great RID Brothers. The 3 from robots in disguise Green - X-Brawn Blue - Prowl and Red - Sideburn

    but thats pretty much the movieverse for ya, its very mix n match. To exemplify;

    TF(2007): The idea of having soundwave in the movie was then broken into two separate things, blackout who had the role of soundwave, who deployed a smaller bot (scorpinok), and then there was frenzy who turned into a portable cd player.

    ROTF: they had the original lambo twins similarly split up with the TWINS herp n derp, and then sideswipe who was notably lacking his twin.

    Don't forget that Barricade was also supposed to be Soundwave at one point, and have Frenzy eject from his chest.

    Also... dont forget that the police car in the first movie was supposed to be an Autobot and it was going to be Prowl before Bay changed him to a Con and they went with Barricade.

    Throw in that Wheeljack is one of the Wreckers in Transformers Prime and yea I think they missed a pretty good chance at connecting the movies in some small way to other continuities.

    Of course if we are going to talk about an epic miss then the most epic miss of the entire series was that the Mountain Dew machine in the dorm room from the second movie was not Dispensor.

    the reason Brawl was called Devastator in movie one was because Devastator was a cover name so people would not find out the real name. The problem was hat when the film went into the editing room, the editors did not catch it and the real name of Brawl was never added to the movie. It was an editing mistake.

    That is applicable to so many things...Haha.

    I think it works just fine. Mirage being a Ferrari fits perfectly.
