    Thanks Nelson for the news. You have taken a shit storm over the Mirage and Wheeljack characters both from us here on ST4E and especially tfw2005(very angry people). I will toast with a beer tonight in your honor !!!

    As for the new names, Awesome!!! I couldn't describe the persona of Wh__lj__k better then "Q". A master of gadgetry and inventions. It would be awesome if John Cleese would voice the character.

    Funny because that's what I suggested in the "Clarification" thread. It would totally work! But then again, I wouldn't be surprised if Mark Ryan voiced him. He did an awesome job voicing Jetfire.

    Yes, but his experience with casting director Wally Burr will probably prevent him from ever coming back.

    This is what Mr. Idle had to say about the experience:

    Transformers: The Movie was a fabulous gig where they flew me on the Concorde to New York for a day's tape recording, and then flew me back. It was horrible whilst I was in there recording, because I didn't understand a word of what was going on. Lines like "Itchging ugh-gah bluhblah..." And they'd say, "No, no, the emphasis is on ITCH-ging." I'd be like, "What the hell are they talking about?" [Laughs] I've never seen the movie. I make a practice of not watching myself, because I know I'd be disappointed.
    That "they" is Wally Burr, who was notorious for making voice actors "parrot" the lines back to him as well as keeping them there for the maximum 8 hours.

    I feel bad for him, quite frankly.

    lol thank you for the great laugh i have had reading both this and the ferrari post some people are just never satisfied

    1. as previously stated by Nelson Michael has a great rappor with farrari having used them in previous films so its clear to me he has named the farrari in homage to the company and its founder. Its a name its not G1 there is nowhere where it is said that you MUST use a transformer name and its also bayformers so it is open to anything.

    2. "Q" is a great name for what may have been wheeljack it links with james bond nicely as it is Q that has created steath force and watching stealth force on bee it is almost like a james bond cars weapons that reveal themselves and also in goldeneye? BMW were the bond cars used instead of aston's

    I mean really you need to look deeper into things than just dismissing something as crap until you think about it and actually see the film. This is going to be the best popcorn movie of the year and I will throughly enjoy it no matter any different names.

    thanks for the info nelson most appricated.

    Yup, and it's a total rip off.

    Anyways I can understand this name. It's waaaaaaaaaaaaay better than Dino. Even though I understand why it's Dino and not Mirage.

    Maybe I'm wrong but wasn't it said nothing is official until confirmed by Bay?

    The names seem really stupid in my opinion but whatever as long as the movie kicks ass.
    Everywhere I look you're all I see. Just a fading f@cking reminder of who I used to be.

    I hope that, whoever who dubs the movie to Spanish (for those who are gonna see the dubbed version), pronounces it the right way
    Don't expect everyone to always agree with you

    I'm still going to end up calling them Mirage and Wheeljack.

    It's actually kind of weird having Transformers with new names; I'm so used to the same names/characters being re-used all the time.

    I'm gonna say this only once and I'm gonna say it now: "Que" will make more sense to a general audience than "Wheeljack" will.

    I agree, Bond fans will get it immediately. I'd like to have seen Wheeljack, but this isn't G1 and we don't have to have Wheeljack.

    Again, I just don't like the name as it reminds me to much of James Bond films.

    @ Nelson. I can understand the Ferrari's name being changed in the movie from Mirage to another name because of the licensing issues as even in the book Mirage was called a red Italian sports car and not a Ferrari in name. But is there a similar licensing issue now with Mercedes? The reason I ask is because in the book, Wheeljack is named as the Mercedes, not as a blue German luxury car. So while I can see Mirage having a different name as in a nickname in the movie but in all reason, still being Mirage, I still feel that Wheeljack will be Wheeljack in the movie and not Que.

    I agree as I can see the homage to Dino and Ferrari but Q as an homage from Bond?
