You know who else spells it with a "Z"?

It's mostly subtle differences, yes, but I like that they went the extra mile to ensure that all of the five Datsuns they've put out are at least a bit different from each other instead of doing straight repaints.
Aw, I hadn't really compared him that closely to my Prowl and am now mildly sad I didn't go for one of the versions with the more distinctive body.

Though if he's basically Prowl's animation model in blue that makes the toy missiles even more incongruous!
