    Now that we've got confirmation that the NASCARs are indeed The Wreckers (Autobots), who do you think the individual members will be?

    Remember, we've got:
    - Red Juan Pablo Montoya #42
    - Green Dale Earnhardt, Jr. #88
    - Blue Jimmie Johnson #48

    Cliffjumper, Tracks, and Springer. I made that up on the spot with no thought to whether any of them were actually wreckers.

    They probably won't even get names in the movie at all.

    As for what Hasbro will call them... probably just some cool race-car sounding names.

    There are actually a number of good names that would suit the characters:


    Springer
    Ironfist
    Pyro (for the red one)
    Impactor
    Roadbuster
    Sandstorm


    Though i'd love one car to be two robots, and have a new incarnation of Rack'n'Ruin.

    Personally, if I was going to name them, I'd go with Swerve, Kup, and Smokescreen.

    Swerve could be the young "hot-head" of the group, Kup could be the old and grizzled veteran, and Smokescreen could be the middle ground between the two.

    I would have said Rodimus/Hot Rod for the red one, but I think if he's going to be included in the movie-verse, he'll probably be the Ferrari. Same thing for Springer, who I also think should be the helicopter design originally meant for RotF.

    I'd like Smokescreen (don't start the shit, "Oh he died already"), Springer and Swerve. Good ideas.

    Though I'd prefer it if they used the helicopter design they had for ROTF for Springer.

    I'd love to see the Osprey Springer come to light in this film, but since we haven't seen one around set at all I think it's somewhat unlikely sadly. I hope that we do get one of these bots named as Roadbuster. I'd love to see him get some big-screen spotlight.

    Thinking about it, the Wreckers don't need a lot of characterization, so perhaps this isn't such a bad thing. We know that they're an elite commando unit, so they don't need to have much more personality than that, though of course they do need to have some speaking lines, and i'd be very, very keen for a team chant of 'Wreck and Rule!' as they engage in battle.

    Yeah, I know they're omnibots, not Wreckers, but since this isn't G1, they could call themselves Wreckers.

    I just hope they're not Skids, Mudflap, and their other brother Mudflap or something.

    So after gathering what little knowledge pertaining to the Wreckers that I can from Wikipedia. It sounds like Rodimus (at least in the BotCon continuity) is their second in command. Maybe this'll add a little bit of credence to the "Ferrari is Hot Rod" rumor.

    Those NASCARS still look like Decepticons. I know they're officially Autobots now, but wow, the insane looking teeth and guns poking out of those bodies doesn't exactly scream "good guys" to me. Whatevs. At this point in the production I'm going to stop questioning Michael Bay's decisions, and just let him do his own thing without me bitching about it. Hey Mike, do you want to turn Springer into a Nascar instead of a helicopter? By all means. Inferno, too? You got it. Unicron? Sure, what the hell. It's not like we hear their names in the movie anyway.

    Bleh, ranting is fun.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if the blue one is named Blur, given how often the character has been making appearances in TF media as of late.

    The other two are a relative mystery to me. I'm going to suggest Springer for the white and green one (he was a car in G1 after all, even if he's more well known for his helicopter mode) and either Swerve or Cliffjumper for the red (Hasbro might try to fit CJ into the movies now that he's a cast member in TF: Prime)

    So:

    blue = Blur
    green = Springer
    red = Cliffjumper (or Swerve).

    Or, more likely, they have random names Hasbro/Bay chose out of a hat.

    ^ Like it.

    Anyway, if we're going strictly by members of the Wreckers, I'll say:
    Roadbuster, Pyro, Ironfist

    Because I want to.

    If it were up to me: Cliffjumper, Roadbuster, and Bluestreak (I know they lost the trademark but why couldn't they add an 'Autobot' prefix?).

    bluestreak, smokescreen, prowl.

    this way all they have to do is repaint/retool the same toy mold, like they always have.


    all i want is the green one to be springer.
