Yes, I know, lots more interesting Tf news to report about...

But we also need to report on the lighter side and the more human side of the hobby, and remember it can never be taken too seriously, or in some cases it can...

I'm sure everyone remembers Scott Nall, who in 2001, officially had his name changed to 'Optimus Prime' to honor his childhood hero. He is a member of the armed forces who served in Iraq, and is a very devoted Transformers fan. A hero very worthy of the name. (Check out an interview of Mr. Optimus Prime at Botcon here.)

Well, O ptimus Prime now has his rival, Megatron to watch out for. July 2nd, Jason Michael Burrows went in front of a judge at a Seattle courthouse and legally changed his name to reflect his childhood hero, Megatron. Jason is as of Monday, legally named Jason 'Megatron' Burrows. See the article here at gizmodo.com.

So what will we see next from the fan base of this new summer blockbuster? Only time will tell when we see a Mrs. Starscream, and a Mr. Bee... Bumblebee.

That's the lighter side of the Transformers news! Now back to your regularly scheduled serious Transformers news. :)

Join us in Seibertron.com's Transformers General Discussion to talk about some more silly and serious things related to Transformers!

Oh boy, I guess if Optimus Prime and Megatron ever meet, the laws of the geek universe decree that one shall stand and one shall fall

No disrespect, but if he can't find someone as geeky as himself then he is never "getting any".

Why would change name to "Megatron". Ok sure, he's badass...but evil! Why would you take a name who happen to be an incarnation of evil.
That would be funny if they meet.

Megatron: Thats cool, but we ALL know megatron is cooler!
Optimus Prime: Optimus is cooler!
Megatron: Megatron is cooler!!!
Optimus Prime: Hell no! One shall stand, one shall fall...
Megatron: Why throw away your life so recklessly...

Nerdtacular!

Ah, but he's only changed his middle name. Unless he always gives his full name, most people aren't going to even know about it.
It's just half-hearted geekiness... I'm most disappointed.

I'm pondering if I should have my name changed to "Abominus".




But that doesn't have anything to do with Transformers.

What do you mean Creature SH , about the name Abominus doesn't have anything to do with Transformers? Of course it does, it's the name of a G1 Decepticon :P

Not sure I'd have my name changed to a canon TF name, one of my own characters maybe? At the moment I've got 3 to choose from :P I'd probaly just have my middle name changed.
