Name of the Transformers 3 Ferrari is...

Hasbro released a bunch of official images from the Transformers: Dark of the Moon toys. One of them accidently revealed one of the bigger secrets Transfans has been trying to work out. As the images below show, the red Ferrari 458 Italia is named Mirage. It is too early to tell if he sports any homage to the G1 character but the change from blue to red color scheme is clearly not one of them. Now all that is left is the names of the rest of the Decepticons and the Einstein character (my guess is Wheeljack).

There is also an image of "Big Hoss" with Monster Truck alt mode. No idea if this is based on a movie character. If interested in more official Hasbro images of DOTM toys, hit the links - Speed Stars & Stealth Force, Cyberverse & Sets, Wal Mart & TRU Exclusives, and Ultimate Prime. Thanks to Sahara for the links.

  1. really digging the look of that scan series deluxe ironhide. i mean even though this is a repaint it's the fact that they used both the clear plastic and paint apps that makes this figure just bad ass all around putting this next to my other ironhide when i see it =D

  3. Cool character but would have much preferred to see Hot Rod

  4. I was thinking this might actually be a new autobot. Can't wait to see his robot form in al of its CGI glory.
    I'm really interested to see how many "named" decepticons there will be...I'm expecting Megatron, Shockwave, Starscream, Soundwave, Lazerbeak, Crankcase and a bunch of drones or repaints.

  6. @ZKuhn

    There were lots of toys in the toyline for the first two movies who's characters weren't in the movies. Plus Bay said no Dinobots.

  7. @ anonymous 8:59

    But there is a Dinosaur Museum in Chicago.

  8. I was thinking the same thing about the toys for other movies. Personally I really hope Dinobots are left out.

  9. We pretty much knew it was Mirage based on the latest comics. This is just official confirmation.

  10. Another case solved. Know we need to know who the Mercedes is. Everybody says Wheeljack so I guess I go with it. I cant wait to see Silverbolt and more Decepticons.


    Silverbolt.

  11. I think the Discovery shuttle is Silverbolt just my guess. The Autobots have a scene with the shuttle(rumor).


    Silverbolt.

  12. Very dissapointed with the name, and the character is kind of ugly :(

    but i still think his actions as in speech and fight scenes will be awsome and thats all that really matters

  13. I don't really care about the name (as long as it's not justinbieberbot) and I think he looks cool.

  14. Winton Ray, I totally agree with you, except I don't think Crankcase will be named in the movie. Maybe that big rotating thing will have a name? Or that large decepticon(I suppose) that tilts the building with Sam in it.

    Regarding "Big Hoss" (witch is obviously not a movie character), why is he part of a stealth force?
    "OK, we need stealth on this mission. Lets call up.......a monster truck?"

  15. Yeah that cracked me up, too!

    A STEALTH MONSTER TRUCK??? Does that even sound right? hahaha

    Oh those crazy Hasbro executives. What will they think up next!

  16. YESS YESS YESS
    IT IS NOT HOT ROD!

    This is pretty cool. Hot Rod (&Rodimus Prime) are my least favourite autobats ever.


    Go Mirage!

  17. Would you be happy if Hotrod got raped by Megatron and the other Decepticons? Why does everybody hate him? It was not his fault that Optimus died.


    Silverbolt.

  18. the mercedes is ultra magnus

  19. Wheelie, Brains and Wheeljack. What if Wheeljack gets wrecked and when he's rebuilt, Wheelie and Brains will become his partners and make Wheeljack a Headmaster. There has already been Pretenders in ROTF, so why not to have even one Headmaster in DOTM?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I mean that either Wheelie or Brains is too small to become a head, so they could form it together whil Wheeljack would be in his robot form with Mercedes-Benz as an Earth mode.

  21. I just love how they get a Corvette and call it Sideswipe,then get a blue race car and call it Topspin, and then get a red Ferrari and call it Mirage. Corvette Sideswipe acts like Tracks so why not call him Tracks. Then its like oh sh*t we got the rights to use a red Ferrari but can't call it Sideswipe now so we'll call it Mirage even though we have a blue racecar in the movie already that we are calling Topspin (traditionally a futuristic boat plane). Im waiting for a boatplane transformers called Tracks. Thats my next guess for a transformer in DOTM.

  22. The toy may be red but it's not a Ferrari 458. Just look at the spoiler or the front

    ReplyDelete
  23. Not to Piss people off but what is hasbro thinking with tf prime and renegades?I followed both since day 1 now i'm done Renegades looks like a 5 year old drew it and prime should be called TRANSVESTITEFORMERS i.e. Starscream

  24. If my message doesn't make it to the site than please put possitive comments only than it will prove that your not allowed to say anything negative about TF'S At least there's still Gen 1.

  25. MMmhh i dunno if the blu Mercedes is infact Wheeljack
    http://www.seibertron.com/images/misc/uploads/1301580344_looks%20the%20same.jpg
    In this page of Rising Storm there is Mirage(Ferrari) and also Wheeljack!!
    But he's totally different than the "Einstein-Bot"
    So probably Wheeljack is not in DOTM.
    Could be the "Einstein-bot" PERCEPTOR? He's a scientist as well

  26. SOUNDWAVE IS NOT CARLY'S CAR!

    Michael Bay said this on his site:
    "Mercedes would never let us make their car into a bad Decepticon. Car company's really frown on that - I can't say what the game company and comics do that's their own thing. They don't have the same constraints movies do. It's Carly's car."
