    No you're right, my bad

    Nelson, lol, I wasn't asking YOU the question I was re-writing what Megatron said in the movie, and as Cyber Scream pointed out I missed a word in there. Not sure why you think I was asking you that question, but I love how you are STILL avoiding my original question that I have asked you about 5 times now.

    Anguirus - thanks for the backup but nelson mis-took what I was saying, oh ya and I am a she not a he

    I don't believe the names one bit. Surely they wouldn't let names as stupid as that in what is supposed to be the final movie.

    If it's true hopefully the movie kicks enough ass to overlook it and wasn't it said nothing is official until confirmed by Bay?

    These new names are kind of dumb. Que and Dino? Oh well whatever floats Michael Bays boat I guess.

    I think they are just giving the robots these random names cause they are probably gonna be useless and will most likely get killed and be forgotten.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    First an uproar over a supposed name-change from Mirage to another in another language. Even if so...it has been known to happen from way back in the TFG1 days when the series went overseas. Now another. Possibly misinformation or an earlier code-word for the Bot to protect I.D. until movie release. However since the official novelization itself (the books which are written based on the actual screenplays of the films) is already released, the latter is highly unlikely.

    For all we know "Que" was WJ's protection I.D. in early filming.

    Is this really worth worrying about?

    You mean, the names that were already legit Hasbro names for Transformers?

    It would vastly increase Nelson's credibility in my eyes if he explained why Wheeljack -> Que, and yet Soundwave is the same. (Or is he?) He hasn't told us anything about Mercedes comparable to what he's told us about Ferrari. So was it a creative decision?

    If so, well, it was probably a poor one to rename the Autobots' gadgeteer. And yes, it is renaming, because the adaptations are out there and Paramount is earning royalties on them right now.

    At least those two names have been named after past Transformers. The Skids and Mudflap in ROTF aren't the only ones with that name. Que and Dino are just random bullshit names.

    You know, I'm really torn. I could totally buy the Dino thing. Seriously, if this was a case of Ferarri insisting on things, shoving a sh*t ton of money infront of the studios and saying "But we want him to be called 'Dino'" then fine, it's dumb but I'd buy that.

    But Que? Would Benz really have insisted on THAT name? And why would the producers like it as it opens up the potential for copyright lawsuits with the owners of the James Bond properties.

    Add on top of that Nelson's typical behavior of excitement followed by being a total ass, which makes me loose any degree of faith and trust in him, I just sit here spinning in my chair.
