    I thought I had this info in some place but I lost it. I know the Japanese named the member of Superlink/Energon combiners different. Do you know the names? If you can include a brief description of each component since the have some different colors as in the USA release that would be useful.

    Thanks in advance!

    Funny the Japanese games kinda got it right even though Blast Off and Swindle aren't the right alt mode.

    Barricade/Onslaught
    Kickback/Brawl
    Blight/Swindle
    Blackout/Vortex
    Stormcloud/Blast Off

    Gren/Glen (as he's sometimes referred to) is a rough approximation of "Crane".


    IIRC, "Vortex" was actually referred to as Volter/Bolter for this release.

    As Archon explained in the post above mine, "Gren" sounds like "Crane" to a Japanese speaker, and he turns into a crane.
