    Who's naming these things? Sounds like a case of the lame American translation for the cool Japanese name...

    Daftest name for a Transformer since they made a vehicle with no roof and called it Hardtop.

    I'd have thought that The Cybertron Dirt Boss toy would have warranted a repaint sometime - and that would have kept the name in use.

    They could have made some mini-con repaints and used the name on one of them.

    I think Liftor would have been a lot more exceptable if they ever repaint the mold I hope they change the name and keep it changed.

    Um... duh? Did anyone seriously think that this was going to be part of Devastator?

    No, probably just a case of Hasbro using a name that they already have sitting around the office.

    I'll probably pick this up since a fork lift seems so absurd in my mind.

    Yeah, I guess Takara would call this one something cool such as "Inch Up".

    Of course, for the movie line, they appear to be obliged to follow Hasbro's character names.

    They should have called him Cheetor. Would've made about as much sense.

    Me too. I'll probaly call him Liftor instead of Dirt Boss. Yes, that means I'll be getting him.

    I'll call him Spoons The Second, too. The name has really grown on me D: Dirt Boss is a cool name, but not for a fork lift :x A forklift is like... the least Dirt Bossiest vehicle outside of a boat or plane. Should call it like... Fork Boss or Box Boss?

    C'mon folks, he can move dirt all over the place! - as long as it's loaded on to a wooden pallet first.

    For anyone who doesn't have this guy yet, he's really cool for a Scout, I'd definitely suggest picking one up if you see one.
