I remember them even saying "Sorry Jazz fans" when they said what type of car Mirage was.
You've seen the film!? How was it?
It was inevitable my mind powers are too strong.
Be interesting to see how this actually turns out. I have hopes after Bumblebee again at least. Ah well anything new transformers Im down for.
Aw. Jazz continues his habit of getting the shaft, rip. Arcee gets another chance to be awesome in a movie but not the coolest Autobot around, cuz we gotta have a Crosshairs on the team I guess.
Why are you here then if you have seen the movie grumpy.
Already a lot of bitching and whining in this thread. And we are barley on the second page.
Anyway, that is a nice ass car. Good alt mode for Mirage, but it does suit Jazz more.
I'm gonna complain that it isn't Nightbeat, just to be different.
Things were fine until @jru42287 and @DarkAxalonSyde went out of their way to be antagonistic and flamebaited, so... Just sayin'
Otherwise people were mostly just saying what you said in your latter sentence. "Cool car, weird that it's not Jazz though."
There was bitching before we got here, bro.
Sure, except for the numerous posts complaining about how apparently only Jazz can be a Porsche.
Its not that people don't mind Mirage being a Porsche, it's that Jazz is a significantly more popular character who actually is a Porsche and ESPECALLY after he got the short end of the stick in the 2007 film (only Autobot who didn't get a face close-up shot AND the only one that actually dies pretty quickly in the final battle). Considering Hasbro knows how popular Jazz is given how people demanded a classics figure of him non-stop for six years between the original 2006 line to finally getting a figure of him in 2012 in Reveal the Shield, Mirage just seems a strange choice.
Oh, like how Drift just arbitrarily changed colors and alt. mode between AoE and TLK because Paramount was too lazy to work out a lease deal with the person who bought the Bugatti between 2014 - 2017, which happened because Paramount couldn't even buy a prop car (whereas in 2006, Bumblebee's concept camaro prop was a fake body shell mounted on a mustang chassis because no Concept Camaros had been made)? I remember a ton of movie fans bitching about that.
You seem to forget that Jazz wasn't the only guy who turned into a Porsche in G1. They could have named this guy Ricochet and it would have worked out.
Seriously, freaking Nightbird is in this. Nightbird. That character is absurdly obscure given she was only in one episode, so the idea they're bringing HER into this film but can't get one of the most popular Autobots of all time (read: merch sale generator) into his most well known alt. mode? It's weird.
Not to mention you also seem to have forgotten MIRAGE ALSO WAS IN THE BAYVERSE.
The only reason this guy was named Dino was because Ferarri is run by image conscious assholes and Bay bent over for them just so he could play with yet another exotic supercar (which doesn't even do anything major in DOTM, also because of Ferrari). Otherwise, this was Mirage and is still identified as such in some peripheral media like this kids book and IIRC even the DOTM video game.
The only thing that puts me off about this is the fact that the car is a Porsche.
I hope people realize it was a joke...
He's a Porsche in a show in the 80's. There are still plenty other alt modes that could suit him. Just wait perhaps Jazz could be in the next film.
I'm not gonna act like movie fans are saints, but I truly don't remember that. Then again, there's a chance I simply blocked it out of my memory for how dumb it was.
A little plain for my liking but honestly, cool alt mode.
No one outside of this fandom knows who tf Ricochet is. I don't even know who Ricochet is.
He was never called Mirage in the movie. He was Dino.
Well put as always.
Personally it's not a huge deal to me, but I like Jazz and he kind of got a raw deal in the first live action film so it would've been nice to see him here when they found a good car mode for him. As long as he's an actual character who is written well, it's not the end of the world.
But it seems certain people here think having a different opinion that isn't just blindly positive with no substance = bitching and whining.
And that's another thing... it'd be nice if he had more blue on him since, you know... Mirage. Maybe some white highlights or somethin' rather than just... silver.
i like how there was exactly one complaint about the car before you posted this.
are you happy, hasbro? this is what happens when you put more and more originality into things. BAYBIES aren't grateful, they just complain if there's not a fart joke or a megan fox ass shot every 6 seconds.
