    Ebay:
    His name is Enzo. Enzo is one of the most famous Italians in history as he is the father and creator of Ferrari. It makes sense, seeing how the car is a Ferrari. However, he needs to be Mirage. I'm not exactly sure why all the comics, toys and adaptations would use the name Mirage for the car if it wasn't tied into the movie somehow.

    ferrari is very protective of their brand, will give them that.
    and also, it doesn't make any difference what his name is. i'd think "enzo" would be a nice name as well if that was chosen.

    It wouldn't be unprecedented, considering there are Japanese Transformers named "Randy" and "Alan."
    I just hope Not-Mirage isn't named "Snooki"...

    The amount of pure bullshit is just baffling!!!

    What's next, they decided to re-name Ratchet to Sprocket just for the lulz? He's a minor character too that the audience doesn't give a crap about! Why not re-name him as well!

    You sir have made my day at the thought of this.

    I know it's not an italian name but i'm still gunning for him to be called Rodimus. Besides when you think about it Rodimus does sound kinda italian :s I think this is kinda disinformation and maybe he isn't called mirage but until the film or a figure comes out we're not gonna know for sure

    Maybe in the books and comic but we don't know about the actual film. My love of books wants to believe that the book is in fact accurate.

    Then we'll make a character named wheeljack and then rename him to Addy!

    Oh oh and they decided to change the Wreckers names to Billybob, Hank and Boomhauer because they fuck'n felt like it.

    I thought Mattel only had the rights for 1:64 Ferraris, hence why RPM Mirage isn't a Ferraris. Similar to Sideswipe; Mattel owns the rights to the Stingray in 1:64 scale, but not in other scales, so the 'Bro can make Deluxe, HA, legends, etc. Sideswipes.

    In short: Nelson is jerking us around and doesn't actually know anything about how shit like this works.

    Does the book say what Brain's alt mode is?

    Does the book reveal if Megatron is surrounded with other Decepticons in Africa and the name of the characters?

    I could keep on asking all day.

    There's stuff that's in the Comic/Novel that were or aren't in the movie and vice-versa. Things like alt modes, plot lines, TF names, and characters that are in the movie are not in the book themselves.
