View Full Version : Help find a better name for MP-18B "Blue Bluestreak"!

I'm eagerly awaiting my MP-18B "Blue Bluestreak" figure. I don't plan to use him as Bluestreak, as I consider the silver and black Datsun to be Bluestreak. So, what should I call MP-18B? I want a suitably G1 sounding name, possibly reflecting his colour scheme or his only-just-been-released-after-31-years status. Any ideas?

Best I have so far is Phantom...



(On a related news-y note, MP-18B appears to have been delayed, according to TFW and The Allspark.)

He's "Cobalt" to me, because that's what I called him a decade ago in one of the site's old RPGs (his entire personality was a pun about him being "blue", and he carried a bunch of weapons designed to make people feel sad). Though anyone who wants to call him something else is, naturally, free to be wrong.

Boo to him being delayed though. :( At least I'll have my MP G2 Bumblebee soon to tide me over.

Kidding! Loving the responses so far. Keep ‘em coming!

Selected replies:

No, you silly billy. That’s reserved for MP-98 “Prime” Vehicon. ;)

Sacre bleu!
Funnily enough, I’m reading a book by that title at present. I’m presuming he’d have a French accent?

Cobalt
This one had occurred to me too. It’s in the running.

Bruno!
LOL! For me, though, there is only one Bruno – and he’s Austrian.

Doctor Mantis Toboggan.
So good it hurts.

Silverstreak
I see what you did there, you scamp! ;)

Hans Manly, Agent of the 'Feels'.
You may have nailed it, sir. This does sound like something Jake Peralta would use as a cover in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, though. Which is awesome too!

Very nice. Like it.

No. Russian or Scottish, just to confuse people.

All right, I'm good at names. I named a person once. Let's do this.

Blue Johnson?

Blue Chad?

Maybe Greystreak in honour of the grey one being called Bluestreak?

Silvermane

...which I think is a villain from something I can't remember.


And that was a sensible suggestion, wasn't it? (still going to call mine Stilton)

He's a really old gangster from Spiderman. Gets turned into a cyborg later on. I vote Silvermane too

I just got a KO of MP Smokescreen. That guy is now my Smokescreen, so my old Alt Smokescreen was made redundant. As he was my first Alt, and I'm rather attached to him, I've decided to keep him on the shelf. He is now to be known as Navigator. My story for him says he was the pilot of the craft that bought him and Cobalt to Earth searching for the Ark. Basically, it's Man of Iron, but instead of Jazz blowing them up, Cobalt (the Man of Iron) and Navigator link up with Prime's crew and get Earth modes.

I know Navigator's alt mode is not era appropriate, but my considered reasoning is shut up ;)
