    Im in the process of having to rename a various assortment of my decepticon figures. I was hoping you guys could help me out and help supply me with some names of some lesser known, yet badass decepticons.

    It would help if we knew which Decepticons you're renaming.

    Sory i should have been more specific. Mostly I need to rename megatrons, for every series from RID through now. I have atleast 2 of each new mold, and was trying to make new shelves with the duplicates, but give them different names. I know, it sounds a little lame.

    Megaplex for one at least.

    For the rest, how about the Japanese names or names from repaints?

    Armada Megatron - Megazarak

    Energon Megatron - Galvatron if you don't already have a Galvatron.

    Darkside?

    Megatronus?

    Gigatron?

    Cybertron Megatron - Crap, sorry that's more an opinion than a name.

    ^This. RiD Megatron can be renamed as Gigatron, since that's the name of the white repaint in Japan.

    Agree on Gigatron, as for the rest:

    Armada - Megazarak or Galvatron G

    Energon - Galvatron II or Thunderwing

    Cybertron - Overlord

    Cybertron Galvatron / ROTF (voyager) - Megaplex

    G2 deluxe (ultimate battle 2-pack) - Grindcore.

    Speaking of renaming, a while ago I was thinking about a small forum game about this... what if you were part of the toy/character design team, and were in charge of naming the original figures? What would you have called Optimus Prime, Megatron, etc, if they never existed under these names?

    Who would be up for it?

    Fun fact: Starscream was almost named 'Ulchtar' back in the day. I'm totally serious.

    Animated Optimus Prime is definitely in need of a new name... in my opinion.
