    I personally wouldn't let a car company change the name of a character and screw up the toys and then rename another character just so I could rip off something more popular than my films. As for Brawl, I would have kept toy name as I would have had the intention of putting the real Devastator in the second film.

    I dislike the design for Que, so I'd rather have him be a seperate character from Wheeljack who could be introduced in a future film and explained as Ques nephew or something. Que could be the good inventor, while Wheeljack is the BOOM! Whoops inventor.

    Dino should've been Mirage. "Dino" is just stupid. Italian car, Italian accent, and Italian name?! no

    I probably would have kept Que...given that didn't really remind me of Wheeljack at all. Devastator would have been Brawl. As for Dino, I don't really care for that name because it's just not alien or robotic in any way. Enzo, one of the rumored names, could have worked for me because it may be a human name, but it sounds cool enough to be attached to a robot.

    Brawl would definitely be changed. Many on-staff admitted that was wrong, plus every toy of the character is Brawl, not to mention that Devastator shows up for real in RotF.

    Dino... frankly, I would have ditched the character altogether. I liked him, but his alt mode led to no toy coming out, and Dino is too "organic" a name for a robot. He really didn't do anything that couldn't have been done by Sideswipe or Bee.


    Que. First thing I would do there is change the face. I really didn't like his face. Way too human or doll/automaton-like. The name's okay, if derivative. I personally just think of it as a nickname someone at NEST probably gave him as he was a weapons crafter. I don't know if I'd want him to be Wheeljack, I'd like a character like that to get more time then just here and gone again like Que was in DotM.

    "Devastator" would have been changed to Brawl.


    Dino/Mirage wouldn't have existed in my movie. He basically amounted to Sideswipe #2, and he didn't do much of anything outside of rope Hatchet on the highway chase. I don't even care what his name is - the only thing cool about him was his design. They could have just kept Jolt in his place.

    Que.....If I couldn't overhaul the design and change the character a bit, he would stay Que.

    'Dino' is ridiculous. 'Devastator' makes no sense. And I would have insisted 'Que' be pronounced the Spanish way.

    I would've used Que and Dino as they aren't Wheeljack or Mirage to me. However, I would have gone with Brawl.

    I'm fine with Wheeljack being called Que, but I would've had Dine called Mirage, and Brawl/Devastator called Brawl.

    Probably a mixture. Devastator (tank) would correctly be Brawl, Dino would be Mirage, but Que will probably stay Que since I didn't feel Wheeljack's vibe from him, in my opinion he is his own character.

    Eagc7, your creativity when it comes to making new threads about the Bayverse never ceases to amaze me.

    Devastator can sod off, the tank is called Brawl. Everyone else I really don't care about, hell they could've called Dino "The Italian Job" and Que as "Speccy McBulletshield" and I still wouldn't have cared that much.

    I would have kept Mirage and Devastator for sure. I liked Que, but I don't know if I want him as Wheeljack
