    Did you read the credits? It listed him as Que/Wheeljack.

    Seriously? I would've stayed, but I had two hour's worth of urine that needed to get drained.

    I'm glad he ended up being Que. I actually rather liked the character, but not as Wheeljack. I didn't think his death was bad, either. He was an inventor, not a badass warrior like Sideswipe or Ironhide. Did anyone really expect him to go out fighting?

    I am glad it wasn't Wheeljack either. He was to different from the original to use the name.

    this is what i thought about mirage/dino. didn't look, act or have the same abilities of normal Mirage so i never saw the issue.

    a worthy sacrifice to see actual emotion attributed to an autobot death.

    I was done very well, especially after ironhide's death that my wife thought be might really die (squeezed the crap out of arm

    So, you think that the tank in TF1 wasn't Brawl, do you?

    Sure, because a typo in one subtitle is the same as multiple lines of spoken dialog. Gimme a break.

    He was named Wheeljack in the credits wasn't he?
    Was a weird bot but he was still the focus of one of the movies most potent scenes.

    As I said on another thread earlier Sam verbally calls him Wheeljack in the movie.

    In the scene with Lennox and Starscream, Sam says 'Wheeljack said it'll go boom.'

    He's not Wheeljack though. He's a pile of crap that doesn't look like a Transformer, I was more pissed when Ironhide died, one of the only movie characters I really liked.

    Reboot please and no Michael Bay.

    I wish he would have been Wheeljack. He was an inventor like him, would have worked perfectly

    I dunno, again it seemed like Bay went out of his way to make a character look or sound nothing like the original character, so I don't mind that he was only referred to as Que onscreen.

    By the way, didn't someone once say the color red doesn't show up well enough in effects, so that is why Ironhide was black and Sideswipe was silver? Because now Mirage/Dino, a character who is usually blue or green, is red. Like Sideswipe should have been.

    That's apparently only an issue that applies to filming with film stock. DOTM was filmed digitally, so it wasn't a problem anymore

    I actually don't mind either, but he was a bit of a throwaway character, so in some ways I'm glad it wasn't Wheeljack.

    Did not know that...thanks for clearing up. I wish they gave Sideswipe a paint job between films, then.
