Because that's what Takara's calling this toy.


Plus, TakaraTomy has been shying away from Japanese names for 5 years straight now. So no more Convoys.
Except for at least the Masterpieces. ;)

United and Alternity (Goldbug, in particular) use G1 characters with Hasbro names.

Just United. Alternity still had Convoy, Bumble, and Cliff, though they bucked the trend with Goldbug.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Grimlock, Hightower & Wedge
3) Energon Sledge, Duststorm, Bonecrusher & Wideload
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Hence why I singled out Goldbug. He started the change for this line, but it happened that all post-Goldbug releases were characters that either had the same names for both markets to begin with or lacked a separate name for the other market.
