    The TFCC just tweeted that the Runabout name wasn't available, so he will be named something else. Also, full reveal coming today.

    Eh; that's how trademark law works. Fair enough.

    We all know what he's supposed to be named. No different than Streetstar or Fisitron.

    So it's the duo of "Over-Run" and "Runamuck" basically.

    I say..that works for me (and I can always consider "Runabout", Over-run's Nickname).

    Be interesting to see Over-Run's Reveal later on, ^^

    (Basically, I am fine with the name change for this Decepticon.)

    A Runabout by any other name is stil a Runabout to me.

    I'm not worried about the names I'm worried about aquiring both of these awesome guys. These guys represent the 2nd and 3rd TFCC figure that I actually want. P/CP was the first but that story is still a sore spot for me.

    The names on the packaging are completely meaningless. It's still Runabout to me. I'm definitely looking forward to the robot mode reveal.

    Well...at least the name actually wasn't avaliable this time instead of being called out as being an offensive term. And the toy will actually be out on time, unlike the ex-Spastic Over-Run.

    The packaging could call him Steve for all most people care - he'll still be Runabout once everyone has him in hand :)

    Just the image, I believe...I think it was confirmed that they would be up for sale next week, but I could be wrong.

    Should have called him Runaboot and made him Canadian.

    I'm surprised they didn't go with the simpler "Decepticon Runabout".
