From The Files of Transformers 3: Dark of The Moon. Who the hell are Dino and Que?

Have you watch Transformers 3: Dark of The Moon? If you havent, you're safe since i'm not giving away any much information about the movie. After watching the movie, 1 thing that really bugs me was the name of 2 Autobots which is Dino (pronounce it as Dee-no) which its alternative mode is a red Ferari and the other was Que (Q) with Mercedes Benz as its alternative mode. There is no Autobot nor Decepticon character uses those names. The closes probably was Dinobot from the Beast Wars universe still no other bots call him "Dino"

Shockwave looks awesome
So, did a little bit of digging here and there and this is what i found. From the prequel of this movie, Transformers Rising Storm #2

So the RED bot is called Mirage while the Silver bot is Wheeljack.

Wheeljack and Mirage badly damage

So, in issue #4, it shows that both Mirage and Wheeljack ware badly damage and Ratchet was unsure if those 2 would be back to normal. If you look at both bots, you would realize they look the same as Dino and Que, in other word Dino IS Mirage and Que IS Wheeljack

I probably feel like most Transformers fan would think that Bay should have stick using Mirage and Wheeljack instead of Dino and Que. 

P/S: i've noticed Sentinal Prime sounded familiar and during the credits, i've realized it's the same person who did Galvatron's voice in Transformers: The Movie

Surviving Sabah

Just watched new episodes of Man Vs Wild. This time, Bear Grylls shows how to survive the jungle of Borneo (its in Sabah but not really sure specifically where) and also  the Malay Archipelago (some islands in between Sabah and Philippine). He did this sometime around January this year.

Bear's tweet for the Borneo Jungle episode

Bear's tweet for the Malay Archipelago

In the jungle of Sabah, he repel himself from the helicopter to a tree than climb down from it which is about 100m tall, explore a cave, eat a snake and also got bitten by the same snake and make a shelter like the orang utan making a nest

At the Malay Archipelago, he shows how to survive in the jungle islands. He survived there by catching a stingray, set a trap on a wild pig and also diving 20m into the ocean and catch a lobster (but he says its crayfish so im not that sure)

I did enjoy watching the two new episodes except the eating the snake part. Besides the knowledge on how to survive in the jungle and island, it also shows some of the beautiful part of Sabah

Hello, I Love You

It's one of those 2 minutes song that I really like.

Hello, I Love You - The Doors

TV show Glee did a cover of this song and they did it OK.

Muslim Batman in Paris

In 1 of my previous post, Batman Inc., I mentioned that I wouldn't like the concept of Batman being franchise. For some reason I'm starting to be loving it.

Bruce Wayne is Batman

Dick Grayson remains as Batman of Gotham City

Mr Unknown becomes the Batman of Japan/ Tokyo

And the latest recruit is Nightrunner, the Batman of Paris

Nightrunner or his real name Bilal Asselah is a 22 years old, French, Sunni Muslim with high skills in parkour. The introduction of Nightrunner as one of Batman allies has make some people dont approve a Muslim Batman. 

PARIS - BATMAN has battled many enemies but now has to face the anger of rightwing US blogers furious that the comic book caped crusader has recruited a Muslim to run his crime-fighting franchise in Paris.
'The character's name is Bilal Asselah and he is an Algerian Sunni Muslim and an immigrant that is physically fit and adept at the gymnastic sport parkour,' wrote Warner Todd Huston on his site Publius Forum.
'Apparently Batman couldn't find any actual Frenchman to be the 'French saviour',' wrote the right-winger, apparently discounting the millions of French citizens of North African descent from his definition of 'actual' French.
In the December issues of DC Comics Detective Comics Annual and Batman Annual, the caped crusader decides to set up Batman Incorporated and install a superhero in cities around the world to fight crime.
The hero he picks in France is called Nightrunner, the alter ego of a 22-year-old from Clichy-sous-Bois, a tough Paris suburb where urban unrest sparked riots in immigrant districts across France in 2005.
Bilal Asselah, a Frenchman of Algerian origin, was caught up in that unrest and at one point he and his friend got beaten up by police who mistook them for rioters. Bilal's friend reacted by later burning down a police station and ended up being killed by police. But Bilal, thanks largely to the influence of his pious Muslim mother, rejects hate and fear. -- AFP

Nightrunner with the Batman symbol

Nightrunner remains the same look with only the Bat symbol as a new addition, unlike Batman of Japan where he gave up his Mr. Unknown character. It's much more better to maintain his own character but at the same time he is one of those Batman

Transformers Prime

Just watched 5 episodes of this computer animated series. The verdict...i'll probably going to watch this in February

What's it about?

The common battle between Autobots and Decepticons. After some years the Decepticons attack Earth, now they are back. After 3 years missing, Megatron is back and plans to beat the Autobots using Dark Energon

Anything Intresing?

Voice actors. Peter Cullen is there for Optimus Prime and Frank Welker for Megatron, the original voice actors in the G1 series. Others probably worth mentioning are Jeffrey Combs, Steven Blum,  Kevin Michael Richardson and Dwayne Johnson (although he only did 1 episode i think since his character died)


Optimus Prime, Arcee, Bumblebee, Bulkhead, Ratchet, Cliffjumper(died), Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave and also human characters such as Jack, Raf and Miko

Somehow i kinda like Ratchet which is voiced by Jeffrey Combs (probably because I like what he did to The Question in Justice League Unlimited). Bumblebee speaks electronic which Raf seems to understand. Arcee is like 2nd in command in here for the Autobots and Bulkhead is the gentle giant.

Most of the characters seems to be influence from G1, the real action movie and also Transformers the Animated series.

Here's the 1st episode of the 5 mini series
