    I'm with you. As long as they have some lines and lay a predominate role, then I'll be happy.

    Trailbreaker, I usually agree with your comments, but what about "Wheeljack" do you think the general audience wouldn't get? They got Bumblebee. They got Optimus Prime. They'll get Sentinel Prime. They got Jazz. They got Ironhide. They got Ratchet. They got Megatron. They got Starscream. They got Soundwave. They'll get Shockwave. They got Sideswipe. They got Arcee. There is nothing about names that people won't get. Gwyneth Paltrow named her kid "Apple." I don't get that, but I don't think there is any justification for saying, "Wheeljack? That's way too complicated... how about 'Que?'" "Oh, yeah, that's much easier. Wait... Que spelled q-u-e, or just a big 'Q?'" "Naw, not just a big 'Q.' It's phonetic like 'Wheeljack' being spelled w-h-e-e-l-j-a-c-k, Que will be spelled q-u-e... wait... that's not phonetic... and neither is the word 'phonetic' ... nevermind."

    LMAO! Now you put it up. Im not saying this to be an ass or anything but you know, if Bay and or anyone involved with what car companies are involved and or what names are attached to them in the movies really wanted to give Homage to any cars and or to anyone in these movie, they really should have asked a Japanese car company or two to have a few of their nicer cars in the movies as TFs. That to me is an homage to everything TFs. Im sure the Japanese auto makers would not have a problem with a few of their vehicles being TFs in the movies as its origins are from there. Just my two cents.

    The point wasn't to pay homage to everything Transformers. The point was to pay homage to things decidely not Transformers. Homage was paid to Transfomers, most critically in that it is a movie about Transformers.

    i undestand that and i agree with you. Im just saying if they wanted to pay homage to anything, i think by including a Japanese car or two as a TF would have been great is all.

    I think that would've been cool, too, along the lines of the "probably japanese" comment in the first movie that paid homage to the Japanese origins of the toys.

    I could get aboard with Dino but I kinda agree I don't like Que at all and preferred Wheeljack considering he's an inventor and it fit so well. Aw shucks movie will still kick ass.

    For those who are confused and do not know how to pronounce a clip here. So you'll have an idea of who was the character.

    So why the difference in names between the all the pre-movie material, novelizations, etc. And what's actually in the movie? If I read the novel of the movie, how am I to connect the charatcters in there with the characters on the screen if they're not named the same? It doesn't really make sense to call them Wheeljack and Mirage in the novel, and something different on screen.

    Then if Mirage did nothing Mirage was "supposed" to do in the movie, people would say it was a waster of the name.

    Don't worry I pretty sure that both Dino and Q will have tons of screentime I mean this is the last film I mean bay has to give every other bot more screentime, Q a inventor so he probably been inventing stuff for humans and autobots which will be cool.

    I like the name Que. It's short and sweet, just like me. Why does everyone need epic names? I think he is going to be more than his name. He is going to be larger than life and a total badaft.
    They call me Ratchet Girl for a reasonl.
    Yeah, I'm a girl...SO FREAKING WHAT????
    I will always love Ratchet. Don't even try to take my title.
