If your own (real and/or dream) car was a good or bad Transformer, what creatively or humorously witty, or seriously cool name would you want it to have and please explain why.

If I could make my own Transformers on the Autobot side I would be a red Corvette and my name would be Striker. A Silver Ford GT name Silverstreak. M1114 Armored Humvee named Camouflage.




And on the Decepticon side I would be a F 117 Night Hawk and my name would be Shadow. A F 22 Raptor named Supersonic. A Leopard 2 tank named Btrutus.

My cool name would be Thunderwave, because I'm cool and totally unoriginal.

My Autobot name would probably be Ultra Hotspot because I am a responsible, mature and headstrong second in command.

I've thought about this a bit.

If it doesn't have to be a canon character I would opt for one of the unnamed Constructicons from my books.

Let me explain: in the history of my story the Quintessons built a series of giant combat engineers whose job it was to march out onto the battlefield and clear or negate obstacles for the army. They called these Combaticons "Constructicons".

Constructicons lacked any built in armaments but carried a weight of armor and ruggedness of construction that no one else could match (which makes sense given their job). Constructicons were NOT built cheaply to be just good enough for what they did. They were as big as the largest gestalt (who came along later to approximate their physical power and presence), quick on their feet, very smart, and were (in their prime, natch) physically up to overpowering Guardian Autobots (who do have LOTS of built in weapons, BTW, entirely different mission specs) in hand combat. Constructions had energy reserves (if fully fueled) to sustain them through most any military campaign. They tended to have fatalistic senses of humor (wouldn't you?).

Named Constructicons in the book are Gladius Pax, Maximus Pax (also known as Artemus the Magnificent) and Orion Pax.

A lower ranked and less well known officer, possibly a younger example (thus still somewhat in his prime — we're talking someone about as old as or older than Alpha Trion even then) protecting something important and hidden on Cybertron or some colony, would be a good basis for a character. Would probably be unable to transform (made of real matter instead of plasma based matter ... not that such wouldn't have advantages ... like being somewhat immune to weapons designed to destabilize or incinerate most transformers) but may have added some built in weapons over the ages (probably only sufficient to deal with smaller warriors in the 'unprotected' arcs). Could be carrying anything up to and including the kind of weapon(s) given to a 177UHEX from said novels (they'd be like pistols to an old-style Constructicon ... but such potent energy weapon(s) would probably be WAY out of bounds if only for balance issues).

I would opt for the name "Harrier Pax."

Introduction could be interesting since the Decepticons adopted the Combaticon badge as their own and he'd doubtlessly be wearing his rightful badge. Probably wouldn't give it up either no matter what happened next.

Actually, writing this reminded me of something (warning, language):

I'd be (of course) Rodimus Convoy. Hah, I'm too lazy to think up a cooler name, but I do believe Hasbro has a TF Name Generator on their site.

I don't want to be a transformer. I am Doom.

However, I would enlist Rodimus Convoy as part of my ruling monarchy. :)
