Weapon: Dual Bladed Sword
Of note: It seems that the Transformers Legends line uses both the US and Japanese names on the packaging. Observe:

- In the Latin alphabet we have "Optimus Primal"
- In Japanese kana, we have コンボイ (konboi), or "Convoy"

Same goes for Rattrap: "Rattrap" in English, but ラットル (rattoru) or Rattle in Japanese. The next one will be Sky-Byte vs. ゲルシャーク (gerushāku) or Gelshark. :lol:
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos and Crashbash (just heads)
- TR Ravage and Rumble (the red one)
- PotP Punch head
- CW Dead End, Brawl, Swindle, Vortex, among others
- Spare PotP Volcanicus hands

That is WEIRD!!! Which names do we use to refer to them officially? Have this ever happened before, with two different names written in two different languages?

I don't think so, this is fairly unique. Even back in G1/G2, each region (UK, France, Italy, Spain, Benelux) had their own names, but also their own packaging.

I countered this problem for now by formatting the release names as "JP Name" / "US Name" if they're different. Thankfully, it only applies to the three I already mentioned: Jetfire is still "Jetfire" in Japanese.

Ya I never liked the mouth hole, even in the show, and the weird demon mask thing was so strange and cool. Mine fell off and was never heard from again.
I was hoping this release would be the original so I could get a fresh one with the mask. My old one is getting a bit rickety, due to the fact that I love him so.

I get why they're releasing this one though, show accurate and all.
Just glad folks will have the chance to get him if they haven't all ready.
He is one bot everyone should have in their stash.

Only in the eyes and mouth. The rest of him looks more like he's been yellowed.

Hasbro's copper is a bit closer to the cartoon colors than Takara's yellow tan.

Ugh. Could we get a new mold, please? The 10th anniversary one didn't cut it, either. A brand new, freshly designed mold would be really nice right about now.

You know, this is impossible, right? Beast wars figures can't be remade in a superior way using modern engeneering. Just imagine if they'd remade, let's say, Rhinox, Rattrap, and Waspinator. How would they manage that?

You know I'm divide on the separate mold thing because optimus primal was a pretty great troy and he stands out even today. But I also believe that Hasbro and Takara do a half assed job appealing to collectors and enthusiast. Maybe a thrid Party will come along and honor him the right way.
