    ... WHAT THE HELL DOES HASBRO HAVE TO DO WITH THIS?

    Seriously. THIS IS PARAMOUNT'S MOVIE. Hasbro produces the toys, sucks Bay's balls for making them a shitload of money and pays him his 8 percent cut of their toy sales he's contractually guaranteed. That's the extent of their contribution to the movies.

    But yeah, the toy company that just gave us a CLASSICS STRAXUS toy is on a quest to really piss off their whiny fanbase because that's how evil companies roll.

    Seriously, get real.[/QUOTE]

    I am getting real, hasbro would have had to agree to this.

    It's not so much the names but the distance from what people expected them to be. Hell even every other piece of media has them being called something different and the change for the movies means either someone really doesn't care about the difference or there is some trolling going on.

    Er, the name is...unexpected to say the least. The meaning behind it great and all, but Dino...? At least it's pronounced "dee-no", not "dy-no".
    Obviously Mirage is the best name for him, but heck Alfredo is better than "Dino".

    Honestly, I don't care one way or the other. If they're called Mirage and Wheeljack? Fine. If they're called Dino and Que? I'm okay with that too. I mean, it's not like we'll be hearing their names in the movie all that much (in fact, I doubt that they will be called by name more than 3 times each through the entire movie).

    Are you supposed to be taken seriously, now? SERIOUSLY?! We're all one month away from the freaking release of the movie, and we're still wondering if this name is Mis-information or not. This is seriously just pathetic. Mirage is going to be Mirage in the movie. If there were going to be trademark issues with Hasbro, then I think they'd have to change the name, and not the other freakin' way around. It's mirage. Deal with it.

    Yes, yes it is.

    It is an utterly crap name for a Transformer.

    And Wheeljack being "Q" in the movie isn't any better either.
