Hi has anyone seen or heard if they will release a Transformer toy of this character?
If they make a toy, he will not be a Ferrari.
He'll be a not-quite-a-Ferrari. Like Sideways was a not-quite-an-Audi.
Yup. His Speed Stars toy looks like I don't even know what
It actually sort of looks like a Lotus Elise.
If they do make a Mirage toy it might have to be called Dino. And here is the reason
At tfwiki.net it says,and I quote: "Dino is not called Mirage in the the movie is because Hasbro's greatest competitor,Mattel,has an exclusive license for Ferrari toys,and thus Ferrari didn't want their product placement sporting a Hasbro toy's trademark."
(or that can change the vehicle mode....just wanted to tell you guys that.)
Omnibot Overdrive was a Ferrari and I don't remember any complaints about that.
I didn't know that....but guess it's just mirage's case.
(mabye they had a license back and lost later down the road or something like that?)
No, that's a reason why the toy won't be called Dino. If Hasbro released a toy under the name "Dino", that means Dino is a Hasbro trademark and effectively defeats the whole purpose of the in-movie name not having a Hasbro name.
Every time I hear about Ferrari all I can think about is that they shafted us fans and they are giant dicks. So I don't think they will let the toy be a Ferrari with the name Mirage. We will get something like the speed stars that has been previously said.
what about that toy we saw that made us all call him mirage in the first place
great point...His toy will be called Mirage then!
