    speaking from personal experience, eh?


    and i prefer elita to flareup as well, but moonracer is what i'll call her probably...they should repaint the scout bike red and call it firestar too...and make more chicks from other molds...

    I don't understand why people are chanting for Moonracer. The last thing we heard of that name was back in 2005 when FP couldn't get the name. Why do you think Hasbro could get it now? If it's not available, I doubt they're gonna go out of their way to obtain it. Also, moons are no more purple than flares are. Flareup makes sense. Flares can be purple, green, red, blue, yellow...

    I don't give a goddamn what they call any of the bikes. I just want pictures of the combined form so I'll know if it's worth buying the damn things.

    Just be glad they didn't call it Airazor, Blackarachnia or Thunderblast.

    Until I see the actual toy on card or instructions, etc, I'm calling it Betty The Bike.

    I want a name fast because I already used the name "Flareup" in one of my comics, I want to see this straightened out to minimalize the retconning.
