    I was wondering, I am about to buy a Animated Wreck-Gar because he was cancelled in Canada (not coming). So I have to buy it from the US. So I found someone who will sell one to me but his picture show the box with spanish words on the front just below Wreck-Gar's picture.

    He told me the box is in English (like the bio on the back and all) and that the Spanish part was actually a sticker.

    So is that common in the US? If I remove the stickers, would the English equivalent be there? I assume the instruction sheet is in English too?

    Actually it is. Stores like Marshalls and TJMaxx got in shipments of WreckGar and Atomic Lugnut about a month ago. All that I saw had Spanish stickers on them. That means the person probably got them recently and for about $13

    So... is it ok to buy it if I want a all English version? I will remove the stickers if the ''Moving lift-forks!'' is still there with a English instruction sheet.

    Depending on how sticky the sticker is, peeling it off could just make it look worse.

    Is the instruction sheet is in English? So the whole package is actually the normal package with just 1 Spanish sticker slapped on it?

    You are fine. Hasbro has not given written instructions in ages. It's all visual.

    I bought it, removed the sticker and there was no problem until... I saw the instruction which was in freaking Spanish! :mad 

    Now I can't return it because I bought it from a member and its costed me 45$ for that thing.

    instructions are pictures though and so what if it has spanish words on it, it doesn't take away from anything does it?

    If anything just look him up on youtube. I have a drawer full of them. I dont use them because they are more confusing than the transformation.
