    In the thread asking about the coolest names ever, I mentioned there are so many good ones, it might be easier just to name the duds.

    So, without further ado...

    Wheelie. Come on. Character aside, the name is so simplistic and says basically nothing at all. It's just there, like a placeholder.

    Buzzsaw. Same thing. Bland. No imagination whatsoever.

    Scorponok. Yes. Very imaginative. A scorpion, you say? I never would have guessed.

    Cheetor...see above. Ran out of creativity early, I see.

    You know what? Any that is "Animal-or" or "Beast-ox" doesn't do it for me.

    So...who else?

    For such a powerful character, you'd think they'd put some creativity into naming him.

    On a similar note... The name "Thrust" isn't really much better either. >>;

    Kup. unless there's something I'm missing, this is THE worst name ever. Too bad, he was a great replacement for Ironhide.

    I always thought Springer had a pretty ordinary name.

    Skids would make a great teammate for Windbreaker too
