I was thinking that too.
But on the other hand, I never thought we'd get Hasbro a product with the word "death" in its name ("Deathsaurus" - BotCon 2005 toy and Shout! Factory DVD subs).
And if they ever make any more toys of ALL the Wings of Honor Skyraiders, we'd get a Hasbro toy named "Hell
It's one thing to make a convention-exclusive figure with "Death" in the name, and make it available in small quantities to collectors. It's another thing entirely to make a figure with "Sinner" in the name and try to put it on the shelves of Walmarts and TRU stores across the country.
True, but I did also mention his being named "Deathsaurus" on the Shout! Factory DVDs, which were mass release (even the UK/AU DVDs kept his Japanese name "Deszaras" instead).
They even kept Hellbat's name in the dubs as well, despite there being obivous censorship done to other things in the DVD subs.
I've actually thought about this too; my guess is a new Hasbro incarnation of Hellbat would change the second "l" to an "i", giving us "Helibat" and a brief backstory about how he used to be a helicopter. Y'see, it's like how the Grand Kai becomes fond of abbreviations in the Funimation dub.
"But even before that, when I was just a little tricycle..."
Now, this would actually become fun if "Hell-Dealer" from the LioKaiser knock-offs somehow got officially acknowledged: they could just invert the 2 mashed-up names to give us "Double-Batter" who runs around whacking Autobots with his 2 baseball bats!
And if that really is why we can't have "SINNERtwin", I guess we can forget about an Inhumanoids revival. The satanic messages weren't even hidden in that one; the intro clearly spelled out that demons from Hell the size of King Kong were going to knock down your house, murder your family, and toss anyone who tried to save you into the lake of fire. *sigh*
