    Ever see a Transformer name and think 'what the !@#$ were they thinking'? Reading the Optimus Prime comic book, and there's a character called 'Monstructor'. Really? I mean... really???

    It's supposed to be a frakenstenien robot, but the name alone makes me think of monster truck shows instead of casting a sense of fear or foreboding.

    Any names worse that this one? (no Erector please! lol)

    I know, right? Optimus Primal? Dinobot? Megatron? What were they thinking?!

    Discharge, Erector, and Windbreaker do come to mind, though they're more unfortunate than just bad. I always thought "Prowl" was a stupid name, at least until Animated made me love it.

    I don't care what anyone says. Names like Erector & Ultra Magnus are amazing, and there's nothing short of a femmebot's sexual or computational persuasion that'll make me think otherwise.

    Thrust, Windbreaker, Erector...

    ...Optimus Prime when it's given to some random repaint of a mold that was never meant to be Optimus Prime in the first place...
