    lol, call me stupid if you want, but will that writting actually be on the toy, or is it "chinese"-not sure- for NOT FOR SALE


    Also, is that just a straight up repaint, or am i missing something.

    the symbols and stuff arent there on accident

    i remember seein official pics from toy fair or somethin like that with those symbols on them. they're supposed to be there. probably to capitalize on some of the scenes set in China

    *shrug*

    *edit* found the pic

    There's a scene set in China, though, so maybe Optimus adds them as a part of his disguise?

    it's a funny phenomenon,western toy designers like to add Chinese/Japanese on toys for orient mystic feeling.but Chinese/Japanese is very complicate,the meaning,the font,the hand writing......things will not get mystic just for add a word,and most time.....it looks very very ridiculous for people who understand these words.
    for exmaple,Mandarin Spawn II,there are some chinese on his body,means "doom soldier",but the hand writing was terrible,just like a 5-6 ages child write.

    I know that
    If Optimus adds them by himself,I have to say he made a wrong choice.....because these words will makes him ridiculous and more outstanding....

    Does it really matter? He is a big-ass American truck with flames on it! Being in China is going to be suspicious no matter what! :lol

    Shanghai General, interesting. Cyberglyphics would have been better, but I'm sure there's some reason for the Chinese writing.
    Either way, this one's staying in the box as part of my MISB Movie Prime collection.

    Guys, pay attention on driver's seat at Josh's picture !

    There is a truck driver in the toy ! Maybe Peter Cullen's face, as seen in ROTF alliance comics...
