While the text isn't translated, the designs of the various Autobots and Decepticons should speak more for themselves, such as a slightly different designed Cyclonus, transformation sequence for Metroplex and Trypticon (Dinosaurer in Japan while in his beast mode), and the Terrocons. Some of the artwork has been seen in "Transformers Generations", albeit on a smaller scale.Check out at TF Pulp now at the AllSpark.com
