    Would anyone have liked it if Rodimus had been the ferrari instead of Dino
    The ferrari was a perfect vehicle for a movie Rodimus and the robot design does look a little bit like his G1 design

    I think it was Ferrari's call on what that character's name would be, and they wanted Dino.

    A name change will not do anything for the character in the slightest. In fact, it may have made him worse.

    i dont mean they would just change his name but if he had been rodimus he probably would have gotten a bigger role in the movie

    No, Mirage was a better choice, and still may get a deluxe toy :)

    Here we go again:

    1) Hasbro can't use Hot Rod or any variation there of.
    2) "Rodimus" isn't a word. It's a half-assed combination of Optimus and Hot Rod created in an attempt to justify his replacing Prime.
    3) They were never going to kill off Prime, last time they did that, it backfired. Badly.

    So on points 1-3 Hot Rod or Rodimus in the movie franchise isn't going to work.

    It's not 1986. Move on.

    Plus, 3 Primes in one movie? Sentinel Prime can be explained, but then you'd need a whole other story to justify Rodimus. Unless he's Hot Rod, but he'd be as important as Swipes or Ratchet. Which is not very. And I hear that name cannot be used.

    Well, that and a Ferrari isn't a hot rod. That'd be like calling Starscream "Truck".

    He would have been the same non-entity. The character didn't do enough/had too little screen time or lines for it to truly matter.

    But, as a Rodimus fan, I can say I would want better for Rodimus, so I guess I'm glad it wasn't him.

    It would still be a name slap.

    I would have cried as no toy was made but luckily Dino wasn't important.

    I'm kinda hoping that with the cyberverse toy already out that we might eventually see a deluxe. I know that Ferrari wouldn't allow them a license for the toy, but Hasbro isn't stupid, they know what the fans want, and they've figured this sort of thing out in the past.
