    We now know most of the names for most of the new robots for Transformers 3.

    Topspin
    Roadbuster
    Leadfoot
    Sentinel Prime
    Silverbolt
    Crankcase
    Shockwave

    And I pointing out that these names might be important roles the the movie. But we have not heard from the Ferrari or The Einstein bot. We know all names except them. What is the hold up? I'm even thinking they don't have important roles in the movie, and I starting to doubt there wil be toysfor those 2.

    What do you think is the hold up. Will we ever hear if they are Rodimus/Hot Rod or Wheeljack?(I'm not saying those are there offical names)

    I dont mean to sound negative but its unlikely we'll actually be hearing any of their names IN the movie....this kinda happened before ROTF came out, everyone was so hyped wondering about the significance of character names and the types of personalities those characters would posses, and then when the movie finally released most of those characters recieved 1-2 lines or were left un named. (sideways, constructicons etc..)

    If they ferrari does feature prominantly in the film Im hoping he'd be Cliffjumper personally..

    Considering we've seen signficant amounts of footage with the Ferrari, and a fair bit of footage with the Mercedes, there's no reason we wouldn't be seeing these two in toy forms.

    From what we've seen, the Ferrari has been seen pretty much everywhere Bumblebee/Sideswipe have. TF movie toylines last over a year, why are so many people thinking we won't be seeing these characters as toys?! We get toys of characters that don't even appear in the film, and you think that these guys will be missed? Yes, we missed out on getting all the Constructicons, but Hasbro explained the reasoning behind this.

    The Mercedes has been hinted at being Wheeljack, while the Ferrari has Cliffjumper/Rodimus as the two leading names being mentioned, but to my knowledge these have been dispelled. Rodimus has been discredited by quite a few inside sources, and Cliffjumpers name popped up due to Prime, in which he was a hi-then-die character.

    Considering how nice the Ferrari is, we'll at least get a lot of vehicle mode shots, and maybe one scene saying "hey, this guy's a badass", like Sideswipe had. Bay has talked about the both of them, though. Something along the lines of "the Ferrari is italian" and the mercedes "invents sh-t and stuff", so they'll get at least second tier roles I'm assuming. Meanwhile the wreckers and ironhide and ratchet will just get a cool fight scene. Sentinel, Optimus and Bumblebee will get the center of attention

    The hold up? It's too early in the year, give it another month and 1/2, then things will really start to steam up.

    There is still a good four months until the film is released. Should know before then.

    We'll find out from the toys, that's how we usually find out about everyone who isn't the center of attention for the whole film. Bay doesn't seem to remember or know the names of a lot of the Transformers, especially in DotM, instead giving them nicknames that kind of relate to their role.

    No toys of minor characters in the movie line? Jeez, we got STRATOSPHERE in like, the first wave of the ROTF line, and he wasn't really even a character to begin with!

    The movie line is simply too lucrative for Hasbro to not pass up the chance to make a TF out of any vehicle in the movie. Such was the case for movie Landmine, who was based on Sector 7 buggy #52, and the aforementioned Stratosphere who was based on Prime's entrance scene from ROTF.

    We probably haven't heard about their names yet because Bay's actually been doing a better job of keeping movie information secret. While the security guard's claim the firetruck was SP was correct, it wasn't until toyfair that any hard evidence supporting the claim surfaced.

    Let's not forget the first movie Devestator, either.

    I'm hoping the Mercedes is Wheeljack, being a guy who invents shit and stuff, like Bay said. As for the Ferrari, I know the rumors are saying either Rodimus or Cliffjumper, but, what if they went a route none of us expected and named him Mirage?

    I like your thinking ;)  Apparently people on here are saying that "insiders" working on the film have been saying its neither of those names. I would be happy to know it was Mirage then since he barely got that much love in recent years. But I also had my theory it was Sunstreaker back when they announced the Ferrari was in this but we hadn't seen it on set, leaving its color up for speculation.

    I think Bay and Hasbro have just been much better at keeping things tighter this time around.

    Hmm... It's possible. Color means absolutely nothing. Compare movie and G1 Ironhide, Sideswipe, Starscream, Ratchet, and many others.

    This 2 bots will probably be top tier character from the Autobot roster.

    Aside from the wonder twins and jolt whose were a last minute marketing character, most of the Autobot have been famous tier 1 characters: OP, Bee, Jazz, Ratchet, Ironhide, Sideswipe and Arcee.

    It’s easier to marketing this character than the lesser known ones, plus they usually have toys from other lines and media to promote. Of course the Decepticons ignore these rules since they need lesser known bots for canon fodders.

    The Benz that creates shit has to be Wheeljack. Not sure about the Ferrari though since they have been no hard rumor or speculation but I’m personally betting it’s either Cliff, Roddy or Blurr.

    I've never heard Rodimus credited or discredited. It's only fan speculation.
