    Beyblade's sales topped Transformers' in Japan last few years.

    reminds me of those power ranger battle top things we got back in the 90's. I think I've still got some of them somewhere

    That's exactly what I was thinking. I remember getting those things back when Power Rangers were still awesome. Ah, good times.

    I like how Japan keeps trying to hide Megatron's Season 2 look.

    Ditto.

    And as Shark Jumper said, it's odd that Japan isn't revealing Megatron in his earth form for some reason.

    No. But Beigomas have been around for centuries LONG before Beyblade introduced them to the west so its not all that surprising.

    Can anyone read Lugnut's Japanese name? I can't see well enough to read it, but that is waaaaaayyyy too much katakana to say "Lugnut" (Raa-Gu-Naa-To/Tsu)

    Also, I think Takara's going to be surprised at how little Blackarachnia has to do with the Decepticons after the pilot...

    Honestly, I always thought that were there to be a Season 4, Blackarachnia, Waspinator and whatever other organic transformers they could muster would form a third faction. (Predacons?) Not quite Decepticons, but not quite Autobots either...
