    A little while ago, the official Transformers the Game website posted a poll, asking visitors to vote on the names for two new drones to appear in the game.

    The votes are in, and the results are:

    Forklift Drone - Scrapper

    Cement Mixer - Mixmaster

    No surprise there, then!

    ....

    I like the names, but it would be better fans to create name and offer it....
    Why I cant get to Tranfsormers Game site? There's just numbers there...

    i can see mixmaster, but why not spoons for the forklift? i think i see a future repaint already (or a simple name change, his colors are close already)! assuming these become toys that is. :thumb

    Two more reasons why we'll never get Devastator. :(

    It'll be cool if they actually make these into toys. I'd definitely buy both, since Mixmaster is pretty cool, and a forklift TF is an interesting new concept.

    Scrapper was the only good name for the Forklift, but I'm kind of dissapointed (but not surprised) that Mixmaster was chosen for the cement truck. I mean, they're drones! Why would they have "master" in any part of their name? I thought "Roughstuff" was an excellent name, I was hoping that one would win, as it also was appropriate given his special ability.

    I dunno... sounds like a bad name.

    "Erector, is something wrong? You changed a bit after Arcee walked by? Erector, Erector?!? Dude, that's just plain wrong!"

    I like Scoop, Scrapper or Liftor for the forklift. For the cement mixer truck, Mixmaster is the best name.

    Agreed... the only forklift character I can think of is the mini-con that came with Smokescreen... or Hoist... one of him.

    Smokescreen came with a plow/forklift and Hoist came with a pincer/forklift guy.
