    It’s also got Hasbro Vietnam on the back of the box, so I’d say pretty legit

    Oh boy, I hope they will re-release Bat form Optimus and Crocodile form Megatron as well. I've always wanted to get these two but couldn't find them in my region.

    It also has five languages. If someone were to actually go through all the trouble of faking reissue packaging for Beast Wars figures, they'd have to be proficient in four languages in addition to English, since
    A) The "five languages on one worldwide packaging" combination only began in 2019
    B) Some of these figures either never had European releases, or their European releases are so rare these days that you cannot simply Google for their European packaging to look up the translations
    C) The translations are different than they were on those various multilingual international packaging variants back during the original Beast Wars run.

    I can verify that the German translations are actually correct and don't read like auto-translated ghibberish.

    Primal, Megatron and Scorponok all (at least partially, in Primal's case) share their names with G1 characters, so I guess those prefixes are there to differentiate them. "Cheetor", "Rattrap" and "Tigatron" are all BW-original names.

    The reason that Rattrap, Cheetor, and Tigatron lack the phrase "The Heroic Maximal" on their cards is that the rocky bubble cards lacked that in the first place. That was added to the packaging when the smooth bubble cards replaced the rocky bubble cards. Polar Claw, Scorponok, Primal, and Megatron had the phrases "The Heroic Maximal" or "The Evil Predacon" above their names because they came out a bit later in 1996, after the smooth bubble had already replaced the rocky bubble. The reissue cardbacks are just replicating the rocky bubble cards. Let me use Cheetor as an example, as Tigatron was never available on a rocky bubble card back in the 90s.

    See how only one of these has the phrase "The Heroic Maximal?"

    Don’t worry in a few years they’ll revert back to Hasbro colors if you expose it to the sun long enough

    I hope they don't can the line before they get to K-9. That's like practically the only BW figure I don't have.

    Yeah, I know. I just hope with what are apparently bad sales with the BW reissues they don't pull it before they get to that point.
