    I've been hearing all the clips with Wheeljack/Que, but I can't put my foot on what is his accent.

    sounds to me like a mixer of

    British
    German
    Scottish
    Irish


    Either way, it's kind of a Europian accent.

    I'm gonna say Irish, or English Cockney. I can't quite tell.

    Aww, never mind. I have no clue what that accent is supposed to be.

    It's a reference to "Q" from James Bond - the agent that provides Bond with all his nifty gadgets. Why the change had to be made to "Que" from "Wheeljack" is beyond me. Although honestly, nothing about him reminded me of Wheeljack except for the gadget part - I don't see Wheeljack going out like a whiny b*tch.

    He was a wacky inventor who loved his job to build bizarre weapons, he IS Wheeljack in everything but name.

    On his accent, I really have no clue, I think it's Cockney mixed with Scottish.

    Well, yeah, I thought it was a reference to Q, from James Bond, since he does the same stuff, provide weapons and gadgets...but its a kinda stupid name...

    What would his name be in Cybertronian? I doubt they have an equivalent for the letter Q xD

    All this time, I thought the name was pronounced the Spanish way.

    They should've made that the case, and given him a Mexican accent.

    He will still be Wheeljack to me when the DVD comes out.

    He will still be Wheeljack to me when I own the toy.

    He will still be Wheeljack to me when I do role play.

    It seems to me that his Accent will be one of the biggest Transformer mysteries of all time.


    Also, I found Dino/Mirage being the spanish acting like, even though he's Italian, both the Transformers DOTM movie and game he kinda reminds me of Zorro.

    Que can stay Que for me

    He had to small a role and died like a sissy. I'd rather save the REAL wheeljack for another movie :p 


    that said, we KNOW he's named Que as a James Bond reference. Que is english


    [plus he said "we're all good chaps." Only english people say weird crap like that xD]

    Seriously, when I heard him I got a major Desmond Llewelyn vibe... despite him being the weapons supplier.
