I might have sat straight up in bed when this occurred to me.
I’m sure it’s 100% unrelated, but I can never put pulling a fast one on us past the nefarious Roberts…
i’d love for it to be true.
oh gosh conflicted feelings
ultra magnus what
you’ve lost me
I am suddenly aware of how intensely vague that was on my part! I was more going for the crack-pot theory that the Necrobot could be listing Ambulon under his real name, and that one of the names on his list of who will die, like, say, Drift, is actually Ambulon and Roberts is being wonderful/mean. Way to far out there to be true, but I enjoy wild speculation. Also, I adore Ambulon, soooo I really don’t want to be right.
no i got confused at the ultra magnus bit.
idk why but reading Roberts’ bit and the “really cool” part, i thought his original name was flywheels???
i’m not making any sense.
no wait. i think i got it the wrong way around. no.
i’ve completely lost myself. ignore me.
His name can’t be Flywheels because that’s the name the Necrobot is just typing in;
which leaves Hound, Chromedome, Dipstick, Drift and Ultra Magnus
so lets remove Hound and Dipstick (which aren’t really “cool” names) so you then have Chromedome, Drift and Ultra Magnus
I don’t think a name like Ultra Magnus is one that can just be given, I may be wrong but even if he was completely reformatted I’d say Ultra Magnus just isnt a name i can see a past Ambulon having, which leaves Drift and Chromedome
Drift and Chromedome are both likely, but I’m sure Drift said Deadlock was a name he took when he joined the cons, and when he left he went back to his old name. TF’s have this thing where no one has the same name, however! There was that poor guy called Prowl at Delphi who had to change his name because of famous Prowl having the same name, so it is possible but it’s usually changed. Ambulon could have had the name Drift whilst Drift was Deadlock
Chromedome’s original name was Tumbler, and Chromedome was a name he was given. I’m more likely to say Chromedome is his original name but you know what I really can’t call it
Naw I’m gonna go for Ultra Magnus here… maybe his name was just ‘Magnus’ or something. That’s because I’m not sure Chromedome counts as being really famous. I mean he’s the best mneurosurgeon there is, but that doesn’t really make him that famous.
And I don’t think it’s Drift because he was Deadlock for a long time.
