    Right, so we all know Erector is a bad name for a toy...but are there worse?

    My vote goes to RID Slapper, not solely because of the name, but because how it was used, being a character in the RID cartoon, and then being used again in 2 other TF toy lines.

    For the uninformed: slapper - Encyclopedia: Slapper is British slang for a sexually easy woman, or tart; a prostitute, slut.

    Well if you are including British slang, a Slag is a ho.

    Backstop just sounds weird to me personal.

    And just saying, Breacher is an innuendo waiting to happen.

    Unimaginative, uncreative names are the worst by far:
    Nemesis Prime
    Thundertron
    Thunderblast
    Shockblast
    Skyblast
    Just waiting for Blastblast..

    Names like Erector and things of that nature at least say something about their characters, the fact that he is a construction vehicle. Discharge was a fire(ish) truck and water discharges from fire-hoses. still at least speaking of the character.

    Immature modern Man(or Women)Children are the ones with so much of a problem with them, back when they came out, young folks were more likely not to care and just enjoyed their transformers.:2c:

    Erector, it makes sense, he turns into a crane and erects things. Not great I admit but all the best names are taken.

    Windbreaker on the other hand, he breaks wind, I think he wins as his name can't be interpreted any other way.

    Even Slag could be molten metal impurities and slapper the sound his feet make as they slap on the ground.
