    I'm going to be buying a Walmart exclusive Sideswipe, the one that looks like a blue and yellow race car. But I' going to be sanding down his head to make a new head, and then I'm going to rename him another Autobot. I find Sideswipes form to be like a Western Bounty Hunter with his pistals, plus he is a race car, so I was thinking of renaming him Sideburn RID. If not any suggestions?

    That does not work.

    I need a real Autobot name.

    Sunstreaker, Bluestreak, Side Burn, and Airazor are all names that I've seen suggested or I myself have considered for him.

    I want the name to fit an Autobot Bounty Hunter name.

    As far as I know, Bluestreak and Sideburn will do fine.

    I even thought to myself (well this is a thought for a roleplay), the Autobot Bounty Hunter is a Traitor and is working for Megatron to bring the Autobots into a trap.

    Unlike the toy Smokescreem repaint Jazz, I want to go all Autobots have a unique form. Just like in the show Ironhide and Ratchet are similar, but in the movie they are unique.

    But..but..he's G2 Gobot Sideswipe!

    But yeah, Bluestreak, and he also would be a nice Sideburn. And yep, Subaru Impreza Smokescreen's Alternator was blue and yellow.

    Maybe later on, I'll put up a poll asking if it should be Bluestreak or Sideburn or Someone else.

    Bluestreak or Smokescreen come to mind as well. Tracks was also blue and a Corvette, so there's another option. Tailgate is another good name. Yes, his car body was white, but he had a blue-ish-green robot chest. Or you can call him Blurr since he was a blue futuristic hot-rod?
