Awesome idea. Failing that a credit dedication will do at the very least.

I'm imagining the Deluxe Dino will arrive at the beginning of 2012...Maybe when they reveal the figure, a dedication should be present, too.

AWESOME SAUCE!
They can make a special edition, and have a "In memory of" Kind of vibe to it! Same with "The accident" On set. they should and could make a whole bunch of toy sets in memory of past stars....of course, having the whole set would be a bit of a downer... Didn't someone say that that Cyberverse TRU Set with the white Crankcase was Dedicated to the on set accident in some way?

May he rest in peace...About the too young part...I cant say anything about that since my dad just died recently when he's only 54...And he didnt even die of a heart attack or any disease/sickness.But I didnt lose my faith in god like one of the comment in this topic did and my faith in god is still strong.

PS : I would appreciate if you guys DONT pray for my passed away dad...Since he is in a different religion than most of you guys are. So dont.

I agree with this. Screw calling the toy mirage..call it Dino...


There is a Dino figure in the making, however, it will be named Mirage. Don't hurt me please... :(

Bummer. What would be really cool is if he were the human in a Human Alliance version of the toy.

About the Mirage vs. Dino name thing, I'm guessing that, as well as Wheeljack vs. Que, could be just another case of miscommunication in the editing process as with Brawl being called Devastator in the first movie. I don't see why else Hasbro would use a different name for the toy than they used in the movie.

According to the Wiki, Mattel has the rights to produce Ferrari based toys, and the company apparently doesn't want what is essentially their product placement to be named after a Hasbro trademark.

Yes this is very sad news indeed.

My condolences to his family. I agree with most everyone else here- 48 is too young to pass on, and of a heart attack too. Very sad, sorry to see him go.

Man, that's really sad. I loved his character in DotM. Dino had such a cool voice.

but sad that he passed, didnt realize he was quinn's kid either but i totally see the resemblance now that i know. lol


He's been on some episodes of "The Glades" on A&E as a Cuban (I believe) mobster, and also Old El Paso commercials, which is where I first saw him. I had no idea he was Anthony Quinn's son.
