    So the leader of a Decepticon faction of dreadlocked robots, known as the Dreads, was going to be called Dreadwind. But he was renamed Crankcase.

    I admire the logic the filmmakers used in choosing such a generic name over a more apt one.

    I admire the logic of making such a pointless thread....

    It's not like his name was used for anything outside of toys and concept art.

    I wish Dave Fennoy voiced one of the Dreads. Why because he himself has dreads.

    They were their own special group....?

    And they're robots, how on earth do those count as "Locks"? More like tendrils....

    How is Dreadwind any more fitting than Crankcase? Because it has the word "Dread" in it? Should Optimus be name Autolauncher? Maybe Megatron can be Deceptiguy? What about the "wind" part? That makes no sense for a truck.

    Nothing makes sense.

    Nothing.

    The character is not named on film so it does not matter.

    Someone please lock this thread or delete it?
