    What do you guys think he'll be like? Here's my idea:

    We all know that Mirage spends alot of time with Bumblebee and Sideswipe, go get this. Bumblebee is courageous, yet child-like young warrior. Sideswipe is an egotistical swordsman who loves to fight. What if they give "Mirage" Mirage's G1 cartoon persona?

    Think about it. Between these two badass warriors, suppose they made the Ferrari a soft spoken, gentle character? All he wants to do is go home, and the thought of one day being able to do so is really his only motivation. Just like G1 cartoon Mirage, only a bright red Ferrari this time. Even if the Ferrari isn't Mirage in the end, I'd like to see this because it would be a great contrast between the Autobots charcter wise.

    VA-Wise, I'd love to see him be voiced by Graham McTavish. McTavish voiced Thundercracker in WfC, and his soft yet intelligent speaking voice would be great for what I have in my mind. Thundercracker and Mirage would have essentially the same voice, but I think it would fit.

    bentron... you have a LOT of catching up to do.

    Nelson, the guy who runs the Michael Bay website, has recently told us that the Ferrari's name is not Mirage. Some believe him some don't. He claims it's due to issues with Ferrari and Mattel, but he refuses to tell us what the name is, simply saying that the name never was Mirage, it's only Mirage on Hasbro products.

    With all due respect to Nelson, but I think he's bullshiting. I think Mirage is the Ferrari and here's why, it's his name in everything. The comic, the book and the toys, they all say his name is Mirage. Why would they change the name now?

    I heard that, but I thought meant that the Twins weren't in the movie or something like that, not changing a character's name. This would be the Devastor is Brawl thing all over again.

    Nelson said the Ferrari's name will have an italian accent AND will be named after a famous Italian. Hell, he might not even possess any traits that Mirage had.

    Nelson's notorious for lying (no Megatron in ROTF, my ass), but if it's true, I bet his name will be Enzo, after Enzo Ferrari.

    I think his name will be Mario and when OP says "Roll Out!", he'll respond with "Let'sa go!".

    Now, that would be a cool name but I really hope he's Mirage.

    Same here
    But giving a ferrari robot italian accent is stereotypical. I guess people are going to bitch about that after DOTM came out.

    Not to derail your fun, but can we get back to discussing the Ferrari's PERSONALITY instead of the name? It's kind of what the thread was made for, if you read the first post...
