    As Que is a reference to the iconic James Bond character, I think it would've been cool if this Que - or Wheeljack if you prefer - he transformed into some type of Aston Martin, maybe even the classic Bond Aston. In the film he does have a typical English aristocrat accent. So why does he turn into a Mercedes, a distinctly German car? :inquisiti 

    Also, if he's an old guy, he should turn into an older vehicle.

    I want to hear your thoughts on this matter, do you agree that he should have a classic James Bond Aston alt-form. Or, did you like the way he looked in the movie, a Mercedes?

    "Q" is not a name to me. I don't care about what whatever character was named in James Bond,I just can't stand the thought of such a horrible name. How was Bay in his right mind when he wanted him renamed? It's a slap in the face and a disgrace and it brings my blood to a boil. So no,he shouldn't have been another car because no one was going to get the reference anyway!

    It would have been nice for him to be an Aston Martin :drool: 
    I didn't mind the age thing , I like the old robot in such a moden car , it give quite a nice, fresh, unexpected contrast to his different modes

    Basically what SeekerBlackout said. He should have stayed Wheeljack.

    No, supercar autobots are just stupid.

    I like that he's a 4-door car, since it shows that he knows how to blend in (even if it is a high-end Mercedes-Benz E550). Also, it has been one of my hopes that we get a Blue full-size sedan TF. While he isn't a Chrysler 300 (the car I wanted) he turns into an arguably cooler car.

    "Q" means "Quartermaster".

    He does fulfil the role of a quartermaster in the movie though. He gives Ironhide a new gun. And gives the NEST soldiers gadgets, he even says "They're great inventions...".

    The boomstick didn't work when Sam wanted to save BB. Serves him right for not trying to save the one that gave him the f*cking thing. Ungrateful asshole.

    True dat. Would've been better if BB got executed, and have that send Sam into a berserker rage at the decepticons.

    Seriously, we need the non-mascot autobots to be awesome too!

    You were beaten to the punch.

    Anyway, yes, an Autobot based on Q who turns into an Aston Martin would have been hilarious. The main thing that bothers me about the movie naming debacle was the back-and-forth.

    Actually, come to think of it, I think DotM Wheeljack's altmode strongly resembles Bond's car in Tomorrow Never Dies, which is one of my favorites!
