    Amusing how the 2nd most voted name is "Force Skim."

    Lets' add more to this list:

    Grind Rod, Shafter, Hard Bone, Uranos.

    Seriously?! These are some of the shi**iest choices they could possibly have made. And I don't get the avalanche of votes for Red Baron. It makes absolutely no sense at all. I'm biased toward Thunderheart because I suggested it, but it wasn't one of my best suggestions.

    smh...

    jeez--with that list, why not just go with something like "little toy plane," or "over priced toy?" while I would prefer my own recommendation of "Thunderbolt," there have to be better choices than those???

    come on....who decided those names were the top choices?

    Fluttershy would have been nice.

    I'd go for moxie wing though.

    Hasbro owns Fluttershy too. So, if they were going to use Fluttershy, they could've just gone w/ Powerglide.

    The only 3rd party Minibots I like are iGear Brawn, iGear Bumblebee and Maketoys Seaspray. I also like the look of iGear Gears (despite the short forearms) so I reckon it will be worth the wait for their version of Powerglide.

    Did they name him yet?

    Also, has iGear released ALL the G1 onscreen minibots (including throttlebots) yet? :D

    IIRC the name they chose was something like "Red Baron", but I might be wrong

    But they did choose the top ten list which was a very weak list compared to some of the great names people suggested.

    As for the winner. CONGRATS. You won a free Powerglide right?
