    He may be Dino to the public, but to me during role play or imagination, he's still mirage.

    Definitely watch BW but you can't go wrong with HFTD/ROTF toys either. Lots of good stuff for decent prices.

    It was Mirage in the novelization, but Ferrari would only allow them to use the car if they could name him. Which is why I hated that they allowed snooty car companies to have so much pull over characters.

    Location can definitely hold you back but having a wants thread posted really helps. Most of the figures I've shared here recently I've had people approach me about, I had to actually seek out on my own just a couple of them. You'd be surprised the reasonable deals you can get, a lot of the offscreen figures are seen as unnecessary or outdated by people who just want to clear space and get in something they care about more.

    I guess that’s on Bay’s part for selling out I guess he really wanted a Ferrari in his movie. Also Ferrari is the reason he didn’t use his Stealth Force mode on the highway battle.

    Here's my "golden age" Decepticons, I think besides Powerdive these have all been TFW pickups from within the last 12 months

    Dang that would have been supercool to see on screen.

    What if we call him Nameslap from now on?

    Hey, can I get confirmation from anyone that the Studio Series Buzzworthy Bumblebee figures were $23 in stores?

    I could've sworn the price tag was 19.99 but I don't have my receipt to confirm.

    As a kid I was pretty incessant about calling them Wheeljack and Mirage, but I've long since accepted their names in the film were Que and Dino. As an adult it's pretty clear the whole thing wasn't as big a deal as anybody made out. At the end of the day they're just two Autobots with really interesting designs. If it's what you prefer you can call them both, either or neither really. More than anything I just wish JacQue would get a new figure already!
