Guess they wanted to make sure Not-Kickback didn't end up in the same club as Windbreaker and Alpha-Q...
Not sure it's much of an improvement though...
Weird that there is no color sample shown when they're about to be released.
Well, since I plan on referring to them as Shrapnel, Bombshell, and Kickback FP could call them all late to dinner and it wouldn't matter to me.
Fine with me. Hurry up and get these to me FP.
WHy Backfiery? What is wrong with backfire? Honestly I sorta see the fart joke there if you dig deep but to me it is what happens to a car. It backfires.
Oh well, as stated to me they are Kickback, Bombshell and Shrapnel.
I'm guessing because Backfire is a trademarked name Hasbro has used for Transformers in the past. Don't won't to poke the bear anymore than necessary, and using the same name they've copyrighted would certainly do that
Backfire - Hunt for the Decepticons - TFW2005
and BlackMagnus beats me to the punch
Also DOTM HA Backfire
Ya IP theft is one thing...Name theft attached to a similar IP...That would make for very easy hunting. Smart move.
I honestly wish they'd have gone with the Deluxe Insecticons references and/or paint schemes. There wasn't a stag beetle in the originals, just Chopshop as a deluxe.
"Backfiery"? Really? I understand wanting to keep the "Back" in his name, but there's gotta be better options. Hey, if he's a "ninja" with a bunch of knives why not "Backstab"?
Those are totally going to be redecoed into Ransack, Chopshop, and Barrage.
Wind, Lighting, Fire
lacking Water and Earth
Too bad they didn't make that an option to begin with. I really don't want to buy these twice, and the Deluxe paintschemes seem to make more sense.
That supposed to be a hint?
As stated they're elemental & Hasbro did a Backfire.
I wonder if someone at FansProject is a CLAMP (manga group) fan? In Cardcaptors, there's a Fire Element Card/ Spirit called The Fiery.
& the original names sounded better, but I expected this name change from day 1, as they better align w/ their Hasbro counterparts.
I'm glad I did a search for "Backfiery" (as I know it's unique), I thought about making a new thread if noone had beaten me to it...
I'm surprised this hasn't been Front Paged yet.
there's still CA-06 and CA-07...
Water = ShockWAVE!? (just a guess folks, nothing more).
Separate names with a comma.
