    Rush could easily be a preliminary name. Remember that Sideswipe was originally listed as Stinger? Wheelie was Wheels? Blackout was Vortex?

    Of course it is. If it's not a reference to G1, it sucks. Didn't you know that?

    "HOTROD" is a copywritten name used by the magazine with the same corisponding name.

    My guess...that magazine was around even before that character. *shrugs* who knows.

    Rodimus would make a great name.

    In his defense, he (and the rest of us) assumed that Rush was the name because the report was written in a way that led us to believe that was so. What's amazing it the catastrophe that ensued.

    Rush would've been a lame name, but I was liking the idea of a completely new character.

    If it's an already existing character, my fingers are crossed for Hot Rod.

    i think Ferrari have told Bay he can't make any alterations to the Italia.... so the lack of flames may not mean it's not Hot Rod....

    TBH, i don't really dive a damn who it is... it's a damn cool car, and i know half of this site will complain about how Bay has ruined whoever he names it after...

    I love you.

    nohomo

    Honestly, I want it to be Hot Rod. Honestly, I don't really expect it to be. Either way, I will be satisfied with this movie, just as I was satisfied with RotF, which was exactly what I was expecting.

    that is true actually. i agree as well. think about it, would sideswipe be any less of a cool ass car if he was named anything else? the design and personality of the robot goes so well with the car itself, it's hard to hate
