    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.

    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.

    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.
