Ok.

Mr. E. said...

Why even call it Metroplex????

And it's even ugly too.

And then Giga said...
Ah, as the thread said, he's actually Megalo Convoy, which is ok with me. I'm done with Stupid Names of American Transformers. (SNAT).
And then Mr. E. replied...
I think you just coined a great acronymn. Should get lots of use in the future. But maybe we can add a couple letters: Stupid Names of American Transformers Created by Hasbro -- SNATCH.
And there you have it. The birth of SNATCH.

What stupid American Transformer names can you think of? Let me know for the official SNATCH page here at naladahc.com.

Decepticharge!

Off the top of my head here are some I'm not all that fond of:

Catilla
Gutcruncher
Aquafend
Liftor
Safeguard
Autovolt
Scarem
Nightcruz- Autobot Counter-Intelligence
Zapmaster
Hosehead
Under-3
B'Boom
Ro-tor

Also, Shockblast should be an honorary member of the SNATCH club.

Oh I can handle that as a "new" name. Now a replacement name for Shockwave mind you. Just a new name.

With a name like SNATCH, I'm not sure I wanna see what it can transform into. Eek.

I should've been more specific. Perhaps...

Groanworthy Reuse Of Previous Designations

Hmmmm. . .

Dirt Boss?
Road Pig?
Grindor?
And who would want to be named Hooligan?

And why are you letting the Japanese get away when they've given out such questionable names as "Leland" and "Breast Force"?

I'll let Taraka be forgiven in all these. I have no problems with and nobody better knock Alan or Joe.

I completely forgot about Squeezeplay, Horri-Bull and Fangry.

I think the Decepticon Headmaster Jrs. deserve special recognition for all being craptastic toys with craptastic names. Like "Worst Sub-group ever" or something.

I've always kinda liked catilla personally. But for crappy names off the top of my head-
1Miester
2REV
3Sideburn (its facial hair for crying out loud!)
4Ro-Tor
5MoVor
6Rodimus Prime (I'm sorry, Rodimus is made up Latin for crappy leader)
Fangry
Horri-Bull
Scattor (I hear he likes feces)

pike

I can let REV pass since it basically implies "revving" an engine and so forth.

But yeah, Movor was definitely a craptastic name. He'll always be Blast Off to me.

The legend of the SNATCH seems to have faded. But I found it in a google search this evening and thought it might be fun to add a few names, based on traditional advice given by mothers to new brides:

Something old - Big Daddy (your BDSM-bot)
Something new - Landshark (seriously what is FP thinking)
Something borrowed - Bugbyte (this one's going to fade)
Something blue - Silverstreak (maybe they should have taken a page from DC and called him Blue Mercury...)

Wow. You really reached into the depths of my archives didn't you?
