    I think hasbro changed their name because maybe they wanted to tradmark Que and Dino,kinda like what happend to Airacnid.
    What do you think caused thier names to be changed??

    IF their names are changed, Dino will be due to a decision by Ferrari. As for Que, I'd assume a similar situation.

    Assuming Nelson isn't completely full of shit and they actually are Wheeljack and Mirage, then this actually had nothing to do with Hasbro and all to do with the film production.

    I seriously doubt that Wheeljack is named Q or Que. The rightsholders of the Bond movies are pretty serious about their IP and that sort of thing goes above an homage, especially if he has an English accent . . .

    I would too, but Soundwave seems to have gotten away with his name. Unless Soundwave just happened to be a name Merc. is okay with.

    Maybe "Wheeljack" sounded too much like car jacking?

    Doesn't matter to me. They'll always be Mirage and Wheeljack to me. And besides, how often are their names mentioned anyway? I don't remeber Skids being called by name, and Jolt, Sideswipe, and Mudflap I only heard once. So it's not really a big deal, I guess...
