    So is Movie Mudflap called Screech in Japan?

    I never got a Crosscut, so I might go for Screech. Probably won't be any less expensive, though, being a book exclusive.

    It's a cute twin idea. When you Skid, your tires Screech.

    No in Japan they are the same names as in the US version. As far as I know there is no Japanese dub of ROF here in Japan. Only the English version with Japanese subtitles which has their regular names in Katakana.

    Er... huh?

    Definitely a strange left turn after having two pretty cool figures attached to the other two volumes.

    They probably would have had to pay Michael Bay to use the name Mudflap. Since this is a Takara release, and not a Hasbro release, it makes sense they'd need to change the name of one.

    No prizes for guessing where they were going with those repaints.

    so... no gold tooth?
