scope dude: ?

For me the MP3 player is Laserbeak and the Digital Camera is Reflector. For the other one that I plan on gettig, I'll just use their official names. peace out.
camera dude: Pigwhistle
psp dude: Fairymaggot
mp3 birdie: Turtle Prosecution
digicam: Onion Parade
scope dude: Sodium Trench
cellphone dude: Danger McAmbulance
Couldn't help myself.
MP3 Birdy: Lazorbeak
bonus, heh. cheatcode would actually make an awesome name for a decept.
Well, I originaly thought "Boneass'' But knew it wouldn't be taken the right way.
camera dude: Unibrow
psp dude: Button Masher
mp3 birdie: Napster
scope dude: Voyeurcon
cellphone dude: Alt. Sqwaukbox
EDIT: 2,000th post! Finally! I quit.
Hmm.... those could pass as Gobot names!
As for the Real Gear guys, their given names are so generic and bland that I have a feeling I won't be able to remember them. I'll either have to rename them mentally or forever be doomed to think of them as "the camera guy," "the cell phone guy," etc.
What about spreading out the names of the robots that comprised Reflector? After all, Reflector was what they were called as a group, but they had individual names. The camera could stay Reflector, the videocamera guy could be "Viewfinder" (since videocameras do have viewfinders too, after all, and with his Borg eyepiece and purple skullcap he does sort of resemble the central team member of Reflector), the binocular guy could be "Spyglass" (for obvious reasons), and as for "Spectro".... well, I could see that working for the PSP guy, though it's a stretch. I suppose you wouldn't have to use all of them.
As for the phone guy, well, he does have a camera on him too, so he could be a third Reflector member.... but it seems more fitting to give him a more phone-oriented name. The name he comes with (Speed Dial, I think?) isn't bad. Other possibilities (just off the top of my head): Dialtone, Ringtone, Static, Crank Call.... I dunno.
Too bad he's not another bird, you could call him Squawktalk.
EDIT: Cheatcode is a GREAT name for the PSP.
ooh dialtone! that the guy.
camera dude: Flash
psp dude: Twitch
mp3 birdie: Laserbeak
scope dude: Longview is fine
cellphone dude: Ringtone
Cheatcode is a badass name for the psp. I'm totally stealing it.
Well, it's either cheatcode or UpupdowndownleftrightleftrightBA...but that's kind of a mouthful.
I guess I'll be the first person to actually play this straight.
Game System: Cheat Code (I liked the suggestion)
MP3 Player: Shuffle
Digital Camcorder: Fixed Lens
Spy Scope: Sneek Peek
Cellphone: Drop Call
hmm, im favoring the gi joe derived ones like sneakpeek and dialtone, lovin the sense of familiarity.
scope: sneakpeek, longview is kewl too.
can anybody recall what were the other 2 devices (there 8 in the line)
cellphone: Brain Cancer
There's supposedley going to be a watch and a video game controler of some kind.
The MP3 Thingy will be Laserbeak in my world.
The binoculars will be called Peeper. Or Tom. Peeping Tom is just too long to use as a name.
The rest, don't know yet. I'll have to wait until something hits me.
camera dude: Reflector
psp dude: Codebreaker
mp3 birdie: Laserbeak
scope dude: Viewfinder
cellphone dude: Dialtone
Well, aside from the obvious (Reflector, Laserbeak), here are my thoughts:
PSP: My vote goes to Cheatcode. It just seems to fit him better than "Power Up VT6"
Cellphone: Um, cells don't have dial tones, so it would be a bit of a misnomer. Then again, who says TF names have to match the alt mode? I'd say either Dead Zone or Linkup would be my choice.
Digital Camera: Megapix. Eh, why not?
Binoculars: Longview is good enough for Green Day, so it's good enough for me.
If these do become reality...
Separate names with a comma.
