    It'd be really nice if you didn't just post the link, but also conveyed the key details, since not everyone here is able to read Japanese. :)

    Sling?! They should've gone with the theme of the rest of them and called him Clubber.

    So Paulie/pteranodon will be the harder one to get individually (relatively speaking, we'll see how hard the set of four is to track down for under $100) since it's the Aeon exclusive. At least it's paired with one of three different toys rather than just one.

    No shit.

    If you read Japanese, or bothered to read the front page, Takara's not using their in-film names. Hence, Paulie and Ivan and the other two.

    I agree, Gaokaiser is the first to give info on Japanese news nearly every time, but also never sheds any light on any of it for the majority of the forum to understand.

    Thankfully this time the front page has clued us in on it already! Using the original names is pretty darn funny, almost as much as the Dragon "Dinobot" who also seems to be the odd one out in terms of colors mirroring a movie Dinobot. Is he supposed to be Slash?

    Yeah, the dragon seems to be Slash-coloured, but Slash's pre-production name was 'Rocky'...

    Ivan, Paulie and Thunder Lips LIIIIIIIIIVE!

    Sling is totally an homage to the BW Neo character, consider how his hands were on the original toy. It's a good fit.

    This solves my mystery of Targets Grimlock/prime 2 pk calling Grim "Ivan" online.

    I like the name Ivan Grimlock...

    Did all 7 Dinobots have code names? If so, what were they?

    Full list of pre-production names:

    - Crosshairs = "Slingshot" (not a Rocky one)
    - Slug = "Thunderlips"
    - Scorn = "Southpaw"
    - Lockdown = "Max"
    - Drift = "Bruce"
    - Strafe = "Paulie"
    - Slash = "Rocky"
    - Grimlock = "Ivan"
    - Hound = "Duke"
    - Galvatron = "Adrian"

    man, those AEON jerks... I want to at least get the three Dinobots, but getting Paulie/Strafe means spending a ton of unnecessary money on Grimlock...
    Like $20 extra. Since AEON is like buying toys at the mall or FAO Schwarz. Total Ripoff.

    I got an Ivan at the Okayama TRU today.
    Not unsurprisingly, I needed to remind the cashier about the promotion, and watched as he searched through several bins of promotional gifts before finally finding the one labeled "Transformers"... :peoples:
