    Does anyone else have some figures that you gave names? It amuses me...

    I call Voyager Seaspray Scuba Steve.
    I call that Scout class hovercraft, Stormsurge, Lord Floatsalot when I forget his name.
    I call Armada Overrun, Deluxe Bendy Prime's Minicon, Surgio, because the japanese name for him is Surge.
    Deluxe Cyberfire Bumblebee is Murderbee

    Anyone else do this?(Don't post Vehicon names, there's a thread for that.)

    I didn't think I was the only one. Generations Darkmount is Straxus to me as well, and all non-Prime Rodimus are Hot Rod.

    I know they lost the Hot Rod name to Mattel, but who got Runabout? I would have thought that one would be safe.

    If I consider a bot to have a different name than what it was given, it's usually for the sake of accuracy. i.e:

    Classics Rodimus (or any Rodimus for that matter) is Hot Rod
    Universe Tankor is Octane
    Universe Silverstreak is Bluestreak
    Generations Darkmount is Straxus
    Generations Sky Shadow is Black Shadow
    RTS Fallback is Outback
    RTS Grappel is Grapple :p 

    Oh and RTS Minset is most definately a Decepticon!*

    *I know he had allegiance to neither faction, but come on...

    I call Airachnid, honey.


    (sorry, had to. First thing that came to mind, ya know)

    ... seriously though, I think I call them by their regular names most of the time, but for me, PCC Sledge has an alter ego named Crumble.
