    The award for over use of the same body in transformers animated goes to...
    Starscream and Bumblebee

    Someone on another thread pointed this out and i was like "oh yeah i never thought of that"

    Starscream has his leigon of seekers (thundercracker, skywarp, ramjet, sunstorm, susan,
    while Bumblebee so far has (wasp, cliffjumper, hubcap, tap out, glyph)
    It does seem that these 2 molds are being used alot (we can account for screamers as he made these himself) but for bumblebees mode it must be a standard protoform mold, like a ultility bot who size has no job description and there for could undertake any role given ie.
    Bumblebee - failed acadmy bot, now spacebridge repair
    Wasp - would of made it if he wasnt set up
    Cliffjumper - looks like hes taken over head of intell, but before he was debreifer between the field spys and officers
    hubcap - i think his original g1 tech spec were based on intell as well
    tap out - looks abit warriorish
    glyph - eye candy

    I think with certain molds you can tell they were built for that purpose but with the BB mold anything goes
    Anyway the reason for this thread is
    What do we call the bee clones, screamers has the seekers

    I like "the runners." Or, if you wanna add an extra helping of chocolate nerd syrup, consider it this way:

    In Quidditch...oh yeah, it is going there...the "seeker" flies around until the perfect moment to strike. Much like Screamy and the clones. So BumbleBee and the others could be considerd like the "chasers" who run around and are always in the thick of the action. Huh? BTW I don't have an encyclopedic knowlage of made-up games, I had to check my facts.

    So I am liking "the chasers." Not only can you connect it back to "the seekers," but I think it sounds pretty cool and I think it is acurate to the characters.
    BumbleBee - Always trying to be fast and chase stuff (Nanosec, membership iinto Elite Guard)
    Wasp - Well, he is chasing BumbleBee now and was chasing membership into Elite Guard aswell.
    Cliffjumper - "looks like hes taken over head of intell, but before he was debreifer between the field spys and officers" - okay, so he is "chasing" Shockwave now.
    Hubcap - "i think his original g1 tech spec were based on intell as well" - so...he is also "chasing" Shockwave...?
    Tap Out - "looks abit warriorish" - Again, "chasing" Shockwave?
    Glyph - "eye candy" - All the guy-bots "chase" her? Ha ha ha!

    See, it works! And they are all small but eager in battle and will go "chasing" after their opponent to take them down. Done and done!
