The Name Change - Power Core Combiners Over-Run with Stunticons
...Goddammit. Can someone move this thread for me to the news section?
wrong section, this should go in transformers toy discussion or news
great find though, i think the core looks alot better in those colors too
I just want to know how the hell I confused this section with the news forum.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
I am an embarrassment to the fandom.
I liked his old name better. It has NOTHING to do with it's meaning, but I thought it was more interesting and memorable than just reusing one of Hasbro's various throw-away names.
I like how its just a sticker.... I'd be tempted to try and remove it and keep the box
Looks like they just slapped a sticker on the box. I hope they come off and reveal "Spastic" for soccer moms to lose sleep over. It's just like rub signs, but with controversy!
Oh man, look at the back. I see at least 3 additional stickers.
Decepticon Dragstrip would have been a stupid name anyway....
What are you trying to say he has been run-over and that is why he is disabled and you call him spastic you make me sick hasbro
^obv this is a joke lol
Stickers? Awesome. Stickers can come off.
Given the way that the stickers are fitted to the space available, I think the number of letters in the name may have been a factor. They didn't print a new box so presumably there is the added challenge of fitting something into the available space.
If you want the Sticker version I would jump on it when they hit. I would guess that this a fix for the ones already done and that later ones will have the printing changed.
guess all the boxes were ready to ship out.
They could have called him Spasma, not half as offensive as spastic.
When i get mine, i'll get two and take the stickers off one and sell it on ebay for a fortune!!!! (joking)
at least he doesnt have the same depressed looke that leadfoot does, but i like leadfoots color scheme better
Those just steam right off, don't they?
Do very much want one with the stickers. I will call him dragstrip anyway. Clearly that's the homage the colors were going for.
Separate names with a comma.
