    Alright guys, I'm stuck. I did a minor custom: the modded head of Alternators Wheeljack's grafted onto Alternators Grimlock's body. Originally I was gonna call this custom Autobot "Chief10" (as in "chieftain," inspired by the "BOSS" stickers) and have his Function be a Combat Instructor.

    Then I researched the Shinoda/Boss reprolabels he sports and learned about Larry Shinoda and his work on the "Boss" Mustang, etc. I decided I'd change his name to "Grimjack" (GRIMlock + wheelJACK) and call my other, yet-to-be-done Alternators Mustang to "Wheellock" (WHEELjack + GrimLOCK)... But I can't decide if reusing the name Grimjack sits well with me. Sssssssssooooooo I've decided to ask you guys for your input.

    What should I name this character?
    What should his function be?
    What should his techspecs be?
    What should his bio say?

    Here's a template for your consideration:

    Ugh, I'm spotting errors already. Redundancy with "custom-detailed" and "custom detailing"... A placeholder motto which I like, but I don't know if it will be appropriate... Argh.

    Anyway, your thoughts? I'm also gonna post this in the Creative General Discussion forum.

    name: steel raceway
    function: infiltrator/ sabotage
    strength: 2
    intelligence: 10
    speed: 10
    endurance: 4
    rank:1
    courage: 10
    firepower:4
    skill: 10

    "get in, steal data, activate selfdestruct, get out."

    bio: [steel raceway is an unspoken legend of speed in the autobot ranks, with good reason for that. entire decepticon bases were defeated thanks to him. unfortunately he only goes where he wants to, not where he's needed. his preference leads him away from protecting his fellow autobots and even other species and more on facilities where he can speed down undisturbed. steel raceway isn't a great fighter though, which is why he relies on his intelligence and speed for victory.]

    ...thats all i got. i hope it helps.

    no problem. he looked more on the "anti-hero" side, and with the mask and car alt mode, it just fell into place.....

    in fact, i might use this profile as well, but for one of my cw g2 leftoverbots.

    Wheellock sounds like a crusty old bot that Kup knows.

    Agreed. In fact, my history teacher in high school was named Dr. Wheelock.
