Chestmasters = Breastmasters
Deathsaurus = Deszaras
Super God Ginrai = GOD GINRAI!
Road Ceaser = Road Caesar They even misspelled Caesar LOL BaCon did anybody even ask about the name changes? or the misspellings?
All I have to say is one word..."Chestmasters"....sigh
I will agree with you on al lof that, I just hope they stuck with the original Japanese names for the concepts also. I hope they don't refer to the mini transformers as minicons. That would ruin it completely
Well, technically, unless he's merged with his trailer & Godbomber, he's just Ginrai, but point taken. If I want to hear him called "Mr. Optimus Prime" I'll watch the dub from the 80s.
He is still God Ginrai in the original Cartoon. Just be glad they didn't try to call him Optimus Prime. Even knowing that when most people will watch the Transformers Masterforce series. THey will be up in Arms because htye don't know that God Ginrai is the name of PM Optimus Prime in Japan,... read more
No they didn't. The cab+trailer supermode is Super Ginrai,not God Ginrai. That + Godbomber is God Ginrai. There is no such thing as "Super God Ginrai".
that was a fun read.
It would have killed Hasbro to get the names and concepts right At least they got God Ginrai right
Though in Japan the Powermasters were known as Godmasters
Would it have killed them to get the Japanese names for the characters and concepts right?
