    After hoards of more G1, we finally get some more movieverse reveals, and one is MIRAGE!* I understand giving him a fictional alt-mode, as those big name car companies act like you slapped their son and kissed thier wife if you don't strictly adhere to their image. Remember when Ford didn't want Barricade to be a Mustang because he was "the bad guy". Or that other company, I forget who they all just sorta blend together, didn't want their car in the film because it transforming make it look like it was "breaking".


    *He's Mirage in the novel and original toy, not "dino/deeno"

    I wouldn't be shocked if they called him "B-127 Bumblebee" but it'll probably be "Cybertronian Bumblebee" if he gets any prefix.

    If I remember right, the reason why we have gotten so few toys of him on top of this is because Ferrari argued that they owned the character too? But I could be entirely wrong about that.

    I'm very much Bumblebee'd out, but glad people will now be able to get mustard with their ketchup.

    Dino on the other hand...

    Dino is bought on sight. Don’t care for Cybertronian Bee or Starscream. I understand the licensing issues entirely because seeing how other cars and characters were treated in these movies (except for Chevrolet who was always carried by Bumblebee), I understand why they were afraid. Of course, I still wish we had gotten Ferrari Dino, but it’s not a huge issue to me seeing as we know the hurdles HasTak had to jump through to make this guy.

    They put Bumblebee on the box because that's the name that sells.

    Great, it's bad enough that we have people complaining about "baycrap" still being around, and others complaining about "G1 crap" in a movie line

    Now we also have more specific whiners complaining about "Bumblecrap"

    When will this stupid trend of whiners shitting on everything and everyone else just stop already

    A fandom is meant to bring people together not divide them further

    Bumblecrap?

    The only truly, all-around good live action TF film?

    Bring on these Cybertronian designs. I\'m buying all of them.

    Because Mattel back then owned the exclusive rights to Ferrari (couple of years later the exclusive merch rights would go to some random Chinese toy car company) and didn't want them to directly be associated with the film, so all of the toys for Dino had to be changed into Mirage and there was no "offical" transformable toy made. The AOE release used the Sideways mold because it was the closest thing to looking like the CG model and Takara was just throwing retools and repaints on the wall to see if it worked.
