    I just read this and thought a few of you might enjoy it:

    'Transformers: Dark of the Moon': How the Sequel's Star Cars Were Cast - Hollywood Reporter

    Not saying that this article is 100% accurate, but it also drops the names Que & Dino as new Autobots, so who knows what's going on with that whole name debacle. Also interesting is the mention that no car company allowed their vehicles to be Decepticons, so I don't know what that'll mean for Soundwave supposedly being a Mercedes.

    Anyhoo...

    They are trying so hard to keep the Soundwave thing a surprise. But this really doesn't confirm the names as it is a safe bet they got a lot of this information from Bay's site.

    Its going by what Bay and Nelson said about the Mirage and Wheeljack's names not being as such. Even though people who've seen the movie ahead of time say that their names are Mirage and Wheeljack.

    Nelson said no one has seen the final product but 2 AICN writers. Those people on IMDB are all fakes so their information is irrelevant.

    The Decepticon cars are "nondescript vehicles"? Yeah right. Barricade was clearly a Saleen Mustang and Sideways had the Audi Logo on his grill. Who are they kidding?

    It means they're still trying to keep it secret. Nothing else.

    That's definitely a lie. If no one else has seen the final product, then how was it rated PG-13? Surely the MPAA would need to see the movie in order to give it a rating.
