    Why don't we skip to the part where we want scrawny anime girls in transformer costumes?

    Nah, I don't care for those...

    Ever since we had the episode where the season 3 G1 cast were humans, it has been part of TF lore.

    It is neat to see what artists feel a TF would look like as a human. I think this cast would look great with human forms... Hell we will probably see official ones if the plots are recycled and someone turns them human.

    I can write the episode:

    *Bulkhead plays with sari and wishes he was human
    *Weird scientist has a way to turn TFs human, Villan uses it against autobots
    *Autobots overcome bad situations while human
    *Bulkhead likes his robot form again

    Ta-daaaaaaaaaaaa!

    This is kind of goofy. Me like :D 

    I see Blitzwing being more of a Wilhelm, myself. "Hogan!!!"

    Grimlock I'd say is a Hugo. Not that Neo-hunting, fleshling-hating, overprotective elf, either. I mean this Hugo.

    Some others:

    Prime = Jack
    Sentinel = Richard
    Ultra Magnus = Chuck
    Ratchet = Rusty
    Bulkhead = Ambrose
    Bumblebee = Jerry
    Prowl = Xavier Alowishus Nottingfield...the third
    Arcee = Susan (natch)
    Wreck-Gar = Jughead
    Megatron = Viktor or Ivan
    Lugnut = Roger
    Starscream = "Slick" Rick
    Elita-1/Blackarachia = Betty

    It's a parody of an often-quoted line from "It's a Wonderful Life."

    How about Black Bart?

    In one of the old, G1 mini-continuities, it's implied all TF names are codenames and that their real names would be unable to be pronounced, comprehended or written down by human means.


    Of course, it's also possible that Optimus' real cybertronian name translates into "the best", that bonecrusher's name is "crusher of bones", et cetera.

    Grimlock is Larry, Snarl is Darrel, and Swoop is Darrel.

    Of course, if Snarl and Swoop start talking, I'm gonna hafta find new names for 'em.

    Yay, Bulkhead is totally Barry.

    I see Megatron more of an Arthur, or a George. And dunno why, but instead an obvious name like Gunter or Franz or whatever, i think Clive fits Blitwing well enough.
    Clive the triplechanger. Meh, that's sexy.
