    I'm not sure why Nelson bothered saying this.
    To me it was obvious from the get go.

    Clarification on the Identity of the Mercedes E550

    While it is clarified that Brains is actually a companion of Wheelie, it now seems that all bets are off on our original speculation for the identity of the Mercedes E550.

    Also, I want EVERYONE to refrain from badmouthing Nelson on this thread. This is simply for speculation on the actual identity of the Mercedes E550. I would like to keep this thread from being closed. Thank you.

    They're probably just trying to salvage any potential spoilers they can still salvage.

    In the end it really doesn't matter what these names will be, the film has been screened a few times, its not like they can, or would go back in there after more or less finishing the composition of the film to change two names.

    Or cut two characters that apparently have a huge plot point related to them that if cut, would drastically alter the flow and tone of the film.

    It doesn't matter. I go by what the toys are called. The first movie called Brawl "Devastator", after all...

    Who cares? It's not like these characters were even close to what they were supposedly going to be/may yet still be called anyhow. Calling 'em Fred and Barney is probably just as fitting as Mirage and Wheeljack...

    At most, Nelson said, "It may be Wheeljack. It may not." There was never any explicit denial.

    Besides, out of all the opportunities to spread misinformation why go with trivial robot names?

    Wait, haven't we known for a while now that Wheeljack and Brains are two seperate characters?

    This post is basically saying Brains is not the car. I thought Brains was a small (Wheelie-sized)
    former-Decepticon and/or Decepticon science project
    with a yet to be determined alt mode, if he even has one, while Wheeljack is a full-sized Autobot scientist who is a weapons maker for the team.

    I'm a bit confused on the size of Brains. He looks rather large compared to cars in the image we have of him from the Rising Storm comic.

    This is getting really old now.

    I pray that the director for the 4th film/reboot just makes the film and doesn't do all this disinformation crap. It really is quite sad.

    the reason they made Brains look larger in the RS comics is the same reason they made all the other newer bots look different. They were told by Hasbro to make sure none of their real looks, sizes... things like that were put into the comics as to better keep their real likenesses under wraps. In the movie brains is only about 8 to 10 inches tall. I believe he may even be a bit smaller than Wheelie.

    Just cleaned this thread up a bit. Discussing the identity of the character is fine, but if this devolves into another rage thread over who the information originates from its done.
