    Hello guys, I need a list (and description if it's posible) of names of all members for the 3 Superlink/Energon Combiners, both American and Japanese names.

    Thanks a lot!

    That's the errors from going from English to Japanese and back. The Gestalts in Superlink all used the original G1 names. With Glen = Hook as I recall. (Vortex, Air raid, Slingshot, etc)

    However, the thing to note was that in the Superlink cartoon, they weren't gestalts as we think of them; in the plot, they had been in Gestalt mode so long there was only one mind, and when they dis-assembled they stayed as one mind in multiple bodies; all the individual identities had been wiped out after having been fused and dormant for so long.

    Billy - Blaster
    Wally - Blurr

    From Headmasters was when I first saw them.

    Also, I did wonder during Energon why the combiners never were in the seperate robot forms, oh well, guess it would have been too expensive to make 6 new character models.

    Apparently cranes were first called "Guren" in Japan. (Now it's "kure-n") Funny choice of a name still, though.

    Is that any better than "The Truth The Eyes Have Met Before"?

    I recall having a good laugh at that.
