Shurikenbull is still my least favourite but damn, i want them all!

edit: the cost isn't even that excessive for these ones. Shipping is probably the only thing stopping me here...well, that and knowing someone who could go get 3000yen worth of TFs and a free minicon for me. Anyone making a shopping trip today? :P

Darn it, i really want that sword and tri-barrel gun... Let's try to write an email to Hasbro Singapore...

Well, Takara Singapore has imported exclusive beyblade giveaways from japan, for similar campaigns... Wait... Why isn't Takara Singapore importing Transformers then... :BANG_HEAD:

The actual names are:

- C.L. (Cliffjumper)
- R.A. (Ratchet)
- Gola/Gora (Gorilla)
- Bulo (Buffalo)

Moral of this post: *never* trust online translators alone. :lol:

Not just that, but the whole "Engrish" feel of it.

And, now it's "Balo".

I like "Bulo" better, since that preserves the pun in both languages. To elaborate:

ッファー (baffalou/baffarou) = Buffalo
バロ (balo/baro) = Bulo

Don't you just hate vowels between Japanese and English? I know I do.

Yeah, but the Romanized form of the name is "Baro", hence the "Ba" pronounciation. Though, we could say that the pun is more of "Buffalo" instead of "Buffalo". ;)

(Im not saying theyre not cool for people who collect TF Prime stuff, I just want to see more G1 styled targetmasters that ARE NOT repaints of Nightstick)

Here's what TFWiki wrote on the matter:[quote]Balo's name is a shortening of "buffalo", accomplished by dropping the middle syllable from the Japanese spelling of the word, turning baffarō (バッファロー) into baro (バロ). It's a bit fiddly when it comes to being effectively translated, though: if we were attempting to recreate the intent of the name's origin in English, he'd be "Bulo", but that's not how his name is actually pronounced, so... nngh.[/quote]

Here's what wikipedia says about puns. Shortening a name by removing the middle of it isn't a pun, unless Bulo, or Balo or Baro means something in Japanese that makes the naming of a robot buffalo funny.
