    also for those who can not see the caption for the name:

    "Ferrari 458 Italia (Rush) on the set of Transformers 3 in Chicago, Il, originally uploaded by Nelson Lauren for Michael Bay Dot Com."

    To me, the Ferrari is Wheeljack. Hopefully that cardboard cutout we saw in an earlier post wasn't this character's head. If it is, this movie news is disheartening. I want to see what Shockwave looks like.

    It's just a Fly By Night Name.

    Sorry. Had to.

    What's the big deal? So what, it's a new character. If it ended up as Hot Rod, the endless line of people bitching about it not looking like the namesake would be horrible.

    I'm not really buying that that's it's name. It just sounds...off to me. If it is the Ferrari's name, then I'll admit that yeah, that's actually pretty stupid IMO.
    I mean, wasn't Wheelie originally 'Wheels'?

    Must we always have old characters or obscure names of characters from 1 page of a crappy issue of the old comic? Rush could be the Mace Windu here you never know.

    Whats with all the capcom nonsense? i didnt know you could trademark such a used word like Rush.
    and they are most likely gonna put 'autobot' before it anyway.

    i also find it funny everyone thought this was hot rod.

    Ah.... you may wanna put that in the front page blurb on here... it was very confusing to read the name was announced, yet not see it anywhere in the story...

    that sucks. i hope it is misinformation. i've been wanting to see hot rod since the first one. if this is true, i hope it's just a name change due to hasbro, and he takes the personalty of hot rod

    Yay, another classic character gets its place among the movie's all-star cast, taking his place among other such TF legends as Mudflap, Jolt, Grindor, Scalpel/The Doctor, & Sideways.

    I can't wait for the movie version of Erector & Drillnuts.

    If they want to create a new character, Overdrive was a pretty good name. G1 Ferrari, barely used in any fiction, so essentially a blank slate.
