Panini do Brasil announced that has started to translate to Portuguese, the official language of Brazil, the DW Generation One comics. The main point was about the translation for characters names because in Brazil they had two versions for their names: the original ones used on the cartoon series and the Brazilian ones used on the comics. After asking some fans, Panini decided to keep the original names like the cartoon, which names the characters became more popular. Rumors said that Generation One would be released in Brazil by September, but this rumor is still unconfirmed.
I was watching "I Love the 80's" on VH1 today and when the 1984 episode came on the Transformers were shown as a big part of 1984. They showed the white cab part of Ultra Magnus as well as Sixshot. Check out the info on their Web site HERE
Is there any more proof needed that the networks acknowledge the recognition of the Transformers? You may have heard that the 3/15/03 Saturday Night Live episode referenced Transformers in a big way...well here's the A/V proof: Botcollector
