    Well, I'm surprised that I saw this thread as quickly as I did... :D 
    I'm sure you know my answer to the question ("YES!"), but I'm sure it'd help a bit if the people voting knew why the name "Tin Can" was important in some way...

    Good idea.

    My fellow members of the forums the reason I posted this poll is that this name was a nickname of my late grandpa and I thought would it be cool as a Tf and I wanted you guys to tell me if this name was suitable as a Tf or not and your reason why. So thanks.

    I went ahead with the "Kitty Truck" project w/o a 'proper' Transformer-sounding name, as it was the actual name of the truck. It worked for the project, as I originally planned on just homaging it. After I'd completed it, I wanted a "proper" TF-sounding name, and remembered my grandfather's CB handle, "Hilltopper".

    IMO, "Tin Can" sounds like a good name for an old Transformer, especially one based off a 70-80's era Cabover Semi!

    I'd say that it would have to depend on the overall character concept/idea and execution of the design to see it if "fits", ya know? Does the name sound viable for a TF? I'd think so :thumb 

    Keep us posted on what you come up with! :)
