    Hi!


    From what I gather, it seems that Ligerjack (Leobreaker) is assumed to be a lion in alt mode, and that the Japanese name was a mangling of some sort.

    However, after reading about these, could it be the case that the Hasbro edition is the one that has been misinterpreted, and should be Liger-Breaker?

    Yeah, it's bred for it's skills in magic. It's pretty much my favorite animal.

    I'm drawing my girlfriend. I've spent like 4 hours shading her upper lip.

    Heh... but seriously, it's amazing how many people after watching Napoleon Dynamite just assume that Ligers are completely made up, when in fact they are real animals (if not a species). Judging by the prevalence of Liger-themed robots and the like in Japanese anime, etc, they've been both aware of, and thoroughly enamoured with Ligers for quite some time (just look at Zoids! Everything's a Liger!)

    I think the main appeal of Ligers is that they are enormous... which is I guess why we never see "Tigon" themed mecha and superheroes... :)

    You crack me up, Man.


    I cant recall where I first heard the saying, " ...Its better than Ghost Rider having babies with a Liger" But the picture that pops in your head is pretty sweet.
