    I got double-beaten. I can't type fast!

    Oh well, I didn't know Rapido was a leader-type.

    Also, was his tech spec in another language before?

    Yeah, that part confused me on the original...

    It's an inside joke. In 1993, the only American figures that had ranks of 10 on their Tech Specs were Rapido and Grimlock. For some unknown reason, Optimus Prime only had a 9. So, people like to say that Rapido "outranks Prime."

    Yeah, that's sad. It wouldn't take too much too fix that either. Rather lazy mistake. Was the Spanish Tech Spec an inside joke? I thought it might be since his name is Rapido.

    I LIke to call my wave 2 G2 Decepticon Cyber-Jets after their Italian/French Names as they came on the same cards as the original colors.

    So I call them Sparrow Hawk and Vulture etc.. rather than the names an American would call them and Consider them Decepticons not Autobots (as the faction symbols indicate they are Decepticons).

    Wouldn't it have been easier to just post the link to the botcon page here? I'm on my iPhone and I had to click the link to get to a news post with a link to the botcon page...

    Anywho, I'm looking forward to getting him. I can picture him voiced by Antonio Bandaras...

    Some people disagree...

    And this is why we did it. :)  The best way to celebrate the character!
