    Just a few notes: I went ahead and put the names (like Lambor) into their Generation 1 American composites. I put the direct Japanese translation in parentheses. It would seem that Takara-Tomy is having to do the same thing as Hasbro in coupling faction labels with names as is evident with Cybertron Streak and Destron Octane.

    Also, I didn't do the Thundercracker tech specs because I didn't open mine. My Botcon version seems suitable enough, and the difference between them isn't as drastic as say Classics Skywarp and Henkei Skywarp, and I don't think it's worth opening Thundercracker merely to read his tech specs. If anyone can get me scan of the back of his card, I'll be more than happy to translate that, too.

    I'm trying to get some time to catch up on the manga translations, but I'm quite busy lately. With any luck, I might be able to get #5 done this weekend. No promises, tho.

    Anyway, hope these tech specs are of interest to some of you. I've gained a new appreciation for Octane, who is a lot more twisted than I had originally thought.

    Yeah, and Prowl carries around a wide range of missiles, yet his fireblast is only 4.
    Must be a wide range of sucky missiles.

    Takara-Tomy is especially known for their info-to-stat correlation. Just look at Hot Rodimus.

    I always thought that Skywarp and Starscreams original bio's got switched. Starscreams intel was only a 6.

    Plus, if Bluestreak is their top marksman, why is his skill only 7?

    Yeah, in the original toys 2 of the seekers' techs were mistakenly switched.

    I believe because skills involve other factors besides markmanship? In the original Marvel G1 bio, I believe it was mentioned that Bluestreak is haunted by the destruction of his home city, thus hampering his effectiveness as a soldier.

    Interesting. I still say that the artwork on the Japanese packing is way cooler than the ones in the US.
