The more I learn about the new movie, the more I realize that this movie has to be different in many ways than the cartoon, otherwise it will be just plain silly. That got me thinking, will the faction names remain the same? I mean, Autobot and Decepticon seem kind of silly to me in a real world setting as they are made up of english words which describe earth concepts. Have we seen anything that confirms the faction names will be used? One main arguement to keeping the names is that they mean so much to the mythos, even to the casual fan, that changing them would be a bad marketing move, especially for the toys. It's probably not that hard to come up with some clever way to explain why each faction has their respective name. I guess it good be what the military, or the media, names them. "Hey, they're car robots, uh... Autobots, yeah, that's it!" But then Decepticons? Any thoughts?
