    His name is Dino. Pronounced Dee-no. Some think he's Mirage re-named, but I don't see it. He's his own character as far as I'm concerned.

    Considering the only toy we've seen of him and all other depictions of him have called him Mirage..yeah, it's Mirage renamed.

    In the movie, he's Dino. In everything else (Video games, novelizations, toys, etc.) he's Mirage. It's all because of a deal with Ferrari. They wanted naming-rights to the character.

    With that said, all the hooplah over his name best result in a HA Ferrari.

    They get a small 2 second scene in the back of a convoy. According to the novel they get sliced and diced by SP when he went on his wild rampage along with Ironhide.

    He's Mirage. He's only called Dino in the movie for legal/ownership reasons, which really doesn't amount to much in terms of Transformers nomenclature (Hello, Tankor, I mean, Octane. How's it going Devasta-pardon me, BRAWL...) He's Mirage, it's futile to argue it since he's called Mirage in literally everything else.

    Given the ridiculousness of Ferrari's licensing restrictions, I think the best you're going to get is "Red European Sports Car that kind of looks like a Ferrari crossed with an Audi.... named Mirage."

    But you could easily tell that with how some of the edits were made, they were supposed to be in there until Bay made the ultimate decision to leave them out of the final cut.

    I say the only way to settle this is to call the Ferrari Mirino and the Mercedes Q- Jack

    Yeah, i really don't see how he could edit them out. The whole part of them dying in order to save the rest of the autobots and the "I wish i was a better brother to you" would have been touching.

    I think having Bay kill the Twins would have been an overkill response to their criticism.

    Option A) Bay hears the criticism about the Twins being racial stereotypes, but ignores them because he loves the characters.
    Result: The movie has more poop and fart jokes perpetrated by the Twins, and the film suffers because of it.

    Option B) Bay hears the criticism about the Twins being racial stereotypes and decides to listen to his harshest critics and murder the Twins on screen.
    Result: Bay is branded a pussy who will do whatever the critics say. (He would never do that)

    Option C) Bay hears the criticism about the Twins being racial stereotypes and decides to cut them out of the film completely.
    Result: People have nothing to complain about because they aren't in the film.

    This whole Dino controversy reminds me of Brawl/Devastator from the first movie. In the movie he was Devastator, but everywhere else he was Brawl.

    Ebay:
    He wuz intended to be Mirage bt becuz of ferrari's f**kin stupid bitch ass with their lame ass licensing, they had the right to name him in the movie hence "Dino" after a sum guys deceased son. Yay f**kin idiots. Talk about a "new" autobot as quoted by Bay. Hes still Mirage to me and who else feels it should hav stayed...In the end all i hav to say is F**K YOU FERRARI!!!

    The case of Dino reminds me of Brawl/Devastator from the first movie.

    However, I can accept Dino as a stand alone character, whereas I could not with Brawl, as Brawl was renamed into an already well established Con.
