    Isn’t that weird, like someone naming there kid Hitler or something.
    Skywarp wasn’t Megatron but he was still a war criminal for millions of years.

    BW is also hundreds of years set apart from G1 and the Japanese BW series are thousands of years later. It's not inconceivable that they'd share a name. Also, G1 Skywarp was also offline for millions of years.

    Most Beast Wars characters assume these names later in life. They admire the military strength of these characters and don’t so much worry about the war crimes. This Skywarp is a teacher and respects the warriors of the past. It would be like recognizing the strategic genius of Alexander the Great while having the cognitive dissonance to forget the millions of people that he killed and subjugated.

    Also, legal wanted to use the name to keep the mark. ;)

    Correct me if im wrong, but if your going on Amazon couldnt you just preorder this and let Preorder Price Guarantee do its thing? At that point why wait around?

    Pre-order price guarantee doesn't account for sales/discounts after it launches. You only get a price match if it drops *before* the preorder ships.

    If Amazon doesn't mark it down between now and whenever it ships, they could change it to a buck the next day and if you already ordered that's your hard luck.

    Speak of the devil, Amazon has *finally* adjusted the price of the Skywarp/Sideswipe set.

    Not sure, when it's triggered for me it's been automatic. You could try contacting their Customer Chat.

    EDIT: Give it a few days, as I think it just happened today.

    Cancel it and reorder it. If you don’t want to do that maybe call Amazon customer service or something.

    That puts you at the end of the line, effectively losing your place in order fulfillment. Amazon doesn't always end up getting enough to fulfill preorders so that could be a bigger issue.
