    Totally forgot about this! Also, I realise the japanese name is written incorrectly. MACRAPTRON and Detroa pointed that out to me. Crappy online translators! Stupid Japanese robots. Thanks to everyone who participated in coming up with names (a surprisingly large amount of people) and an extra thanks to Thunder_Cracker for making the time to write bio's.

    bio (by Thunder_Cracker)
    In Thundercracker's "world", after the battle of Autobot City and Prime's death etc, we don't have season 3, means Megs stays Megs and Prime gets resurrected etc

    After feeling the need for more bases on Earth/Cybertron, Prime, Magnus, Alpha Trion, and many other important people go into meeting to discuss the matter and was unanimously agreed on to build a new Autobot City somewhere on Earth, a place like where the previous Autobot City stands
    A nice forest/meadow/river, etc, the nice things you'd like to see around a city, a place where you can see the sky bright blue in the day, that fire red at sunset, and that epic ray of light at dawn.

    When choosing the site, Hound was more than happy to help choose a location, and he choose a place that can't be put into mere words at all
    He choose a place that lined up mountains along with excellent greenery around paired up with a river allowing part of the forest to grow greatly and could still spot the sky in it's beautiful figure, due to this line up the city was chosen to be called Skyline City, the most beautiful Autobot City to dat

    From G1:

    Overdrive
    Chase (throttlebot)
    Sideswipe
    Roadhandler (micromaster)
    Pointblank?

    From G2:

    Rapido (Go-bot)

    I'd call him Chase, he even has the correct mouthpiece :thumbs2:

    Please. No Swerve. Think harder! =P

    @Houndvoice: I also came across Chase, but then he also sounds like a female star from an early 90s teen-drama..haha.. But those names are gonna go on the list!

    Without a Targetmaster, should I really call him Pointblank?

    This is indeed harder than I thought.

    Fire Guts Convoy sounds kickass, but Convoy/Prime is a truck!!! amirite!

    Overdrive is also a fitting character. So far on the 'top'-list is Overdrive and Chase.

    Rapido sounds like a Looney Tunes Character. Road Runner and Rapido etc.

    Keep 'em coming!

    Chevy Chase? :wink: 
    I think Chase has a nice sound to it, but if you get bad associations from it pick something else.

    Seeing as he's a sportscar, I think Pointblank is fitting. Hey, Takara called him Optimus/Convoy, and he's no truck, so there you go. :thumb 

    edit: Really nice work btw, I love the all red theme! But how you can stomach repainting such an expensive figure is beyond me. :wink:

    Edit: I would go with Overdrive or Rapido, their transformations are closest.

    Ace Convoy: Great list. But Jin Kazama? From Tekken? haha.

    Rouge Convoy sounds pimpin'. I like Starfire, Fusion Convoy (Will have come up with a cool backstory) in particular. He can't be Inferno with out sirens and some decals.

    Houndvoice: You make a valid point. As for your inability to stomach my choice to actually paint an Alternity is simple. I buy to paint. A very simple answer, but I think it covers it.

    Starfire and Fusion Convoy are on the top-list too. Thanks guys.

    @bruticus82: Rapido might be a fitting mold/character, but the name sounds too much like a Mediterranean localization.

    Forget Transformers! How about Throne Drei?

    I just googled it. That's perfect. On the top-list! Okay, Gundam names are welcome too. But they have to be good-guys. He's still an Autobot.

    I say Turbomaster Flash! The head even looks similar (only difference being the faceplate).

    Flash (G1) - Transformers Wiki

    Either that or Overdrive.

    But there's already a Cliffjumper. And Cliffjumper talks like a Brooklyn cabdriver. I don't see this guy doing that haha.

    hXcPunk23: I still have that toy! His arms broke off, has no weapon or sticker, but I got him! He lacks a big gun, I think that identifies Flash, since his only iteration was the Turbomaster.
