    Why does the Japanese Leadfoot not have the Target logo?

    No, and I guess that's why.

    Really I would of thought targets are everywhere. It also doesnt make sense is that the trading card thing, that comes with the figures shows the Target logo on him.

    Because, in order to sell something with the Target logo on it, you need to be a Target store. So, they removed the Target logo, as well as the number so they can sell it as the international version to countries that don't have Target stores in every city. Licensing and whatnot.

    Plus, Target is a french company, I don't know if that has anything to do with why it isn't in a lot of countries.

    We've also not got Targets in the UK. I think we got the Cyberverse one with the logo at Tesco here though, who generally seem to get Target exclusives.

    Target has all rights to the USA?

    I also heard a rumour that Zellers (The Canadian Target of today) is going to become Target in a few years.

    Not a rumour. The buyout has already happened, and I believe a few of the conversions have already happened in the east.

    No, Target is based in Minneapolis. Not sure if you were making a joke about how people like to pronounce it sometimes.

    To be honest, though I would buy a repro-label set, he doesnt look bad without the logos.

    There is one, and it looks great.

    Makes me hope Hasbro finds a way to release Leadfoot in the US in the Movie 4 line, even if it's missing all the logos like the Japanese version.

    Yep, Tarzay!(or however the hell you spell it).

    It's about all thoses "rights" and stuff.

    Easy bud, just screwing around. Now that I think about it, has there really been a item with Wal-mart on it?

    I agree. I thought it would bug me but it's not that huge a deal in person.

    Once reprolabels has the deluxe Leadfoot stickers available, I'm getting all 5 sets to make my wreckers rule! (and the armor topspin will become twin twist, and orange roadbuster will become sandstorm)

    Yea, I didn't even attemt to spell how people pronounce it. Figured that was what you were doing there in your first post, but the amount of wrong information you see floating around at times is incredible.

    I was really surprised too, once it arrived, how decent it looked even without the Target logo. I'll still get Reprolabels when they come out but I'm stunned I'm not bothered by the lack of the logo in front.
