Question: why the EU-styled cards?

Already bought Bludgeon and Ultra Magnus at Walmart 3 weeks ago. I don't know at all if it will be a poorly distributed wave with very few copies so I did not wait for a sale. They only have ONE of each. I only left Megs because having the original, he's not worth it.

No trademark markings on the names (like "tm" and "®"), plus the difficulty rating is in 6 languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Dutch.

In Canada, the Transformers toys never had the trademark insignias on the packages because Canada doesn't have the U.S. Trademark Office and these packages are also sold in Mexico and in European stores.

Canadians generally speak either French or English, I'm guessing using the multi-lingual EU packaging just saves having to design a Canada specific package.

I was going to say, and I may be wrong, but I think Canada has different standards for that sort of thing... Things I've bought from Canada generally don't have the same packages as they do in the US, but I could be wrong.

Thats what I meant - they use the EU packaging so they have the French and English covered. No need to design a Canada specific package that way.

I Have multiple tri lingual versions of each. Some from Germany and Some From Canada.

I find it a bit hard to believe they'd put Dutch of all languages on something meant for the US and Canada. Just saying. >:oP

[color=deeppink]Its all done in China anyway. Print in bulk - save money. Why bother designing something for one country when you can have a "one size fits all" package?

So it wouldn't surprise me if we start seeing Dutch\French\Italian\Mongoose appear on more toys[/color]

They do. It's to make it easier, as others have said, in terms of EU and CA markets. Put all the languages on there, sell them in both without repackaging.

Same goes with comics - Canada did not get the in-pack stuff at retail because of the language laws, as we didn't in the EU.

How about that. :-? Finding Dutch in places other than the Netherlands always tickle me pink. :lol:

Here's hoping for a Dutch release.

They're teasing you. There is Dutch on the packaging, but there is no Dutch release. #-o

That IS indeed the Euro packaging displayed above. Luckily for everyone, I keep Bludgeon sealed for reasons. Here it is, the CANADIAN packaging.




It's a trilingual packaging. English, French, Spanish. The "small parts waring" label on the front is only in english for some reason and there's a stupid bonus sticker in French and English only for Québec about the website.

EDIT:
Eat a bag of shit, Photobucket. The thing keep confusing the orientation of the first picture no matter what I do... :HEADHURTS:
