    I frankly don’t care whatever name is on the box. Doesn’t affect the actual figure in the least.

    Don’t give the 3rd Parties any ideas. :D 

    Let’s face it, there’s already tons of TF names with sexual connotations:
    Thrust
    Hot Rod
    Powerglide
    Bonecrusher

    Just to name a few! :D 
    The names “Slut “ and “Whore” could fit in somewhere.
    May have to spice it up a bit though, like PowerSlut. Or maybe WhoreSlider
    So why not just keep Slag?


    (may as well ask… Are there any British People truly offended by a robot Triceratops names Slag? Asking out of genuine curiosity :)  )

    I had to explain to my kid why Slag was called Slug on the box.

    Thanks for that Hasbro

    yes. It’s already been a topic when this comes up. There has been a member here and there said they were surprised when they saw the original cartoon and/toy and it was called Slag. Just like how if the word incel gets brought up here everyone gets upset

    Can we please not do this moronic shit about the name again?

    We get it, you can’t handle change. Move on and call it Slag in your own house.

    Its pathetic that Grindor is in the US yet Hasbro refuses to acknowledge his existence. I bet all mainline releases will be out in the US before Hasbro acknowledges a figure’s existence. I support Hasbro but like c’mon. We need official releases. Don’t delay the poor figures so much that they show up at US retail before you acknowledge them

    I’m also drunk which does not help my frustration

    Ha, thanks!
    Although I’m not sure people know I’m joking, so I went back and changed it to blue text just in case.

    This is the best Slag toy we will get from Hasbro, it is great and I am loving that we are getting it, and Hasbro did a great job making him.



    I changed a letter in a name once. Fecal Rex was not happy (3rd Party Pregoking).

    The funniest shit in the world is whenever Slag/Slug has any new toy or sighting is grown men crying & bitching over 1 letter. Words change meanings.

    Amazon had Grindor and Jolt slated for August. I ordered both of them back in April, when the listings popped up on the site, so we'll see

    Why doesn’t hasbro release a figure named cock? The dictionary definition means a large bird or to ready a gun for firing so it could be like a nerf or kfc collab.

    TF Slag was a thing before the slang word was a thing.

    A modest proposal: Retain the name "Slag" for the US market, but in the UK sell him under the name "Cunt."
