    why does the first dinobot have the title printed "WST DINOBOT" and then for grimlock and slag it is "WST DINOROBOT"? and also Slag is spelled "SLLAG"?

    I'd assume copyright issues. Grimlock is also spelled Grim-Lock and Snarl was actually 'Desert Warrior Snarl'.

    They also stopped refering to them by the changed names, most I see them called now is by their functions, Flamethrower and Commander
