a "nick name" for a mechanic
seems app to me
What sort of a name is Zizza?
Could she have worked as a female Wasp? (leaving out the -inator bit?)
Apart from her, Scowl sounds amazingly great for a Dinobot and Pseudo is just okay.
Zizza is the weirdest sounding name yet. I haven't fully scene episode 23...I'll watch it later tonight.
Scowl is one of the best names in the show.
Fun to say, though
The new season is a little more careful now, using a mix of reused old names (Polar Claw, Scorponok) and new names (Glowstrike, Saberhorn). I'd call that an improvement.
Regard of what his name means or doesn't mean, "Peddo" is just how it's pronounced in Japan. The Japanese tend to add "o" and "a" at the end of some their English phrased words. For example, in Go Go Sentai Boukenger, "Mission Start" is said as "Mission Starto"
It's just that Ped is a name. Japan is taking the English version of that name and adding the O on it.
Disagree. Names are fine.
Strongarm's name fit her just right. There's nothing unfeminine in it, save for ridiculous belief that girls can't be physically strong and the only acceptable stereotype for them is a bombshell.
Steeljaw's name fine. Puting "wolf" in it would be ridiculously over the top.
Glowstrike is a terrible name though.
Saberhorn is fine though.
Nah Glowstrike's a cool name. Haven't even seen the ep yet, but the name alone has me wanting to see what kind of con we have on our hands.
I like that we're getting a lot of new names & a lot of unconventional TF names like Malador & Zizza & Ped. It's cool & I've felt they were all app for the characters they were attached to.
On Sideswipe- G1 Swiper barely got any screen time. Same for movie Swipey, who barely resembled Swipes anyway. Sideburn had a whole show to shine. So I'm glad that Slick is finally a main character.
It's nice he's get some focus but man is RID Sideswipe rather unlikable.
Glowstrike for a Con who very likely transforms into some kind of firefly insect? I'd say it's appropriate.
What about Slipstream?
....Her name is literally AIR-ACHNID. You know, "Air Arachnid". "Flying Spider". That's literally the most unoriginal name I've ever seen for a helicopter Transformer which has a spider motif. It'd be like naming Starscream "Jetboom" because he's a jet that can break sound barriers.
At least names like Bisk and Ped are creative, even if not everybody finds them good names.
I pay zero attention to Minicons anyway. Have them blanked, they don't even make good articulated toys. No opinion.
Heck, can't even tell NuRID Minicons by their names... I think Cyclones are with Overload and Drift has red (orange?) discs? Fracture has torpedoes and they're... Blue or purple?
Yeah, this is as much as I can memorize about them.
Besides, they're shelfwarming. Who cares about Minicons?
Came back to see if this thread was still hilarious. Not disappointed.
Lol nah, I like him.
I love how most of these names are "inappropriate" just because the OP doesn't like them personally.
I'm still salty that's the name of Drift's mini-con and not the female Seeker.
Me too. Same with Airazor.
If you take connections between Fall of Cybertron games and TFP seriously, she's even in the same continuity with this minicon.
You are talking about:
a) MisAligned DisContinuity, should explain enough cluster**** as it is, and...
b) very creators of this show sell us TWO Grimlocks with the same name and alt mode in this continuity.
Tl:dr - abandon all logic.
Of course it also means that real Slipstream will never get a Warrior class toy unless made by Takara and she's unlikely to show in any new US continuity.
Separate names with a comma.
