    Ok, so in the movie they are called Dino and Que but it is very easy to ignore that. Dino is mentioned by name once. Sideswipe calls him Dino but the Ferrari isn't on the screen at the time. We can easily pretend Sideswipe was talking to someone else, maybe even a human. As far as I can recall, Wheeljack/Que is never mentioned by name in the movie. I see no reason why we can't just call him Wheeljack.

    It;s Micheal Bay's movie they can do what they want. We call it Bayformers for a reason.

    Wow what movie did you watch?

    The Ferrari is most certainly Dino going by both the credits and him being called that multiple times in the film. Same goes for Que, but at least he is listed as Que/Wheeljack in the credits (and someone said Sam calls him Wheeljack, but I don't recall that myself).

    He introduced himself as que and as he gave the humans boomsticks and grapplers,sideswipe said "que,we have to go." But I see Dino and Que as codenames for special missions and mirage and wheeljack as their real and more common names

    I think I heard Sam say "Wheeljack". Most likely passed by during editing.

    I know they are called that in the credits, I'm talking screen time. I only remember hearing Dino once. It's when Sideswipe is fighting the Dreads. I have no recollection of hearing Que mentioned by name. I'm going to see the movie again at the weekend, maybe I'm wrong, I'll find out then.

    Que is called by Que several times in the movie. I'm still calling them Mirage and Wheeljack. Dino just sounds stupid. And Que just doesn't work for Wheeljack.

    I don't even care anymore. Mirage is called Mirage in every other form of fiction, so thats what I'm calling him.

    This has been driving me nuts, I thought there was no way they would be called Dino and Que until I heard it, now I'm gonna just go with seekerblackout idea, Thank you sir, I can sleep tonight.

    Agreed, both are clearly referred to as Dino/Que. The Ferrari is the only Autobot on screen as a NEST announcer directs "Dino" to a repair/tune-up location, and "Que" explicitly introduces himself as such.

    I don't recall that either, though I may have missed that.

    Ultimately, what you refer to each as depends on your own personal preference.

    Some people are saying that Sam says to Lennox "Wheeljack says these things go 'boom'!" during the Starscream scene.
