KA had another moment of Zen on another thread: Sentinel's real name is Brad. Yes. Win. So maybe Transformers take on imperious, exotic, sci-fi names to butch up in front of each other and cartoon people. Or maybe 'Sentinel' translates as 'Brad'. Or maybe something else, I don't care and please don't try to insert reason here. What are the other real names of TFA characters? I vote Optimus is a steady name like James, Edward or Malcolm and Lugnut is really called Trevor. Bulkhead may well be called Roland. Or Barry. Megatron looks like a Clive to me. I want to say Blitzwing is called Gunther but that may be me making a national association. Starscream was originally called Leaf, but he changed it to Jaquin. Prowl has a name like Finbar or Auberon, but doesn't tell anybody. Anybody feeling Earnest for Grimlock? Please do not take this thread seriously. If you find yourself taking this thread seriously please find the nearest window, break it, and exit your computer room to the outside world. Talk to new people and run about in the sunshine. Don't actually break your window.
