    A 3rd FACTION! What would you call it?

    So I've always liked the idea of a third faction in transformers.
    And with the books and the upcoming MMO we have the 'Star Seekers'
    Which is a cool name i guess...don't really think it fits space pirates if you ask me.
    And the name seeker in the any transformer universe is pretty much a Decepiticon thing. So i feel StarSeekers was a poor choice.

    I'd love to hear some names from you guys. It's not needed but I ask you think about Suffixes ( and maybe even Prefixes )
    One of the strongest part of Autobot and Decepiticon is being able to call team on each side 'something'bots or 'something'con

    I always thought it'd been a better name if BW-Megatron called the Vehicons, Vehitron. That way it sounds like his own name and you could of had Constructitrons, Aerialtrons, Combatitrons, and so on.
    And the minicons having CON at the end of their name kills me.

    Even though Tron is at the end of the decepiticon's leader's name. It's a 'technoy' word and I think it's good suffix for a new faction. But i still haven't been able to think of a good first part to that name. vehi is to close to auto. So either think up a better first part or a totally new name.

    EDIT: [I'm am aware of other sort of factions from the wikis Turbomasters, Omnicons, Nebulons, Heralds of the Chaos Bringer, Mutants] But I'm asking what a new name would be cause i really don't like any of those. Especially Uricron's gang....Takes way to long to say.

    What can you guys think up?

    Always been a fan of the idea that each SUBGROUP was actually a whole GUILD that just SOME joined the ranks of the big two.

    Terrorcons and predacons especially.


    IDW seems to have run with this concept as well.

    Any autobot jet seems to be an AIREALBOT.

    In one idea I was working on a long time ago, I had Autobots, Decepticons and Destrons. The Destrons being an offshoot of the Cybertronian race pre-Great War who were providing the fledgling Decepticon rebellion with weapons for their uprising.

    Mostly I just like the faction name and would love for it to survive somehow.


    Another faction name I just made up sitting here - Darkrons. Terrible name I know, but I was thinking "what's a good name that incorporates "cron" from Unicron and emphasises these are Transformers who've fallen under the dark thrall of the Chaos Bringer"

    What about Chaons, or just "the Heralds? Sure they don't have "cron" anywhere, but they do fit with the whole follower of Unicron schtick.

    I did not reply in the same order, as your replies

    Wow! Destrons! So simple....the answer is right in front of me. Just take the Japanese name.
    I like it. And it'll make Takara's heads' explode.

    Darkrons....little cheesey but i see that totally working. But you'd get the 'kron' suffixes

    Get out! Your fired from being a fan. Leave your badge on my desk.

    Ummmm ya i could go read the wiki as well. I'd rather know whats on your mind.

    I like it it's sort and simple and much better than 'Heralds of the Chaos Bringer'

    Your also fired. And will not be getting any severance pay.

    That could work. You can ether work with 'Dons' suffix or even better 'Para' as a prefix. That would sound awesome.
