    Evac (Movie) - Transformers Wiki

    I mean, the colors are almost exact, and Evac sounds like a better name for a member of a rescue team than Blades.

    So what are your thoughts?

    Evac wouldn't have been bad...but Blades is fine too really, and that's now what I'm accustomed to.

    Evac would have been nicer. But Blades is great too.

    Evac just makes more sense in my opinion.

    No since Blades is part of the Rescue Bots team does mean Evac being part of the Prime/FOC Protectobots.

    Evac would've worked, but Blades is fine too. "Blades" is a name that we haven't heard as often as "Evac", so I'm okay with it.

    Given Blades has a longer history in the franchise, it literally makes no difference to me.

    Maybe Evac would have worked, but I'm already used to hearing him be called Blades, so I like Blades now.

    They could pull a Unicron Trilogy and have Blades seriously injured and then rebuilt with a new design and a new name for the heck of it.

    Ratchet gets called to Griffin Rock. "Hey, Blades. You were badly damaged, so now you have a new head-sculpt and a sweet new paint-job and most likely changed your personality/removed any development you had received. Also, we totally changed your name to Evac lol."

    No.

    Evac should still be a guardian of the Cyber Key on Earth chilling out with his best buddy Crosswise.

    Blades is fine...I like the timid character more than another jerkass psycho the Autobot have enough of.

    Evac would be better for that show, but I prefer Blades.

    I think Blades is better just for the sheer irony.

    I mean, the only other Blades who was a rescue helicopter (if there was another Blades character, not counting the obvious-but-poorly-released Blazemaster repaint from ROTF) can be simply described as "bastshit crazy murderous psychopath".

    RB Blades is the exact opposite, to the point where he wasn't even originally a helicopter to begin with.

    Also, Evac is also taken as a name for the character in the Universal Studios TF Movie Ride and his two toys (exclusive Deluxe, and mass-released Cyberverse), so it wasn't even an option to begin with.

    Either is good, but given the tone of the show, Blades is a less vague name, especially to kids.

    Evac makes more sense since he did not have a flight mode before earth and probably had no connection to anything able to be referred to as a "blade" before, let alone multiples of them.

    Either could of worked, but for some reason they went with Blades.

    Perhaps the Evac name could see some action in another line.

    But to honest he didn't do much in fiction aside from being a Protectobot.

    Blades, because I want Aligned Evac to be the awesome chill guardian who's best buds with badass bounty hunter Crosswise
