    As much as we love our TFs- there's no denying some of their designs are ridiculous.

    I've seen a few hilarious descriptive nicknames for TF characters that crack me up.

    Lets place them all here!

    danger + armorhide = dangerhide (more cool than funny)
    battlecore optimus = whitimus (luckily he's not rascist)

    I have a nickname for IDW Getaway, but I'm not sure if everyone would find it funny given the circumstances.

    They came up with the concept of a Targetmaster set, a Transformer who came packed with a smaller robot/alien guy that turned into his gun, and named of one of them Misfire and Aimless.

    Guzzle?
    Whirl?
    Weirdwolf?
    Twintwist?

    Really?

    I call him The Pedophilic Child-Murder. If you read the comics, you'd know why.

    maybe he's flashing arcee.

    what i find stupid are these?
    blaster changed to twincast. wut cast?!
    soundwave to soundblaster. lol, he uses the name of his enemy. it's like, oh you changed your name to twincast, so the name blaster is not occupied now. so i think i'll take that name and use it.

    but there are tons of stupid names like you guys suggested.
