Default Galaxy Force two-packs

Divine enlightenment pointed me towards this discovery:

HLJ now offers GF two-packs for preorder.

"Buler & Runabout"

"Long Howl & Puzso"

"Long Howl" is obviously HLJ Engrish for "Long Haul", though I'm still lost concerning the other names.

Regarding the identity of these mystery GF toys, some fans speculate those might actually be Takara's version of the RiD Build Team repaints, although this is still pure speculation.

If there's any justice the first should be Englishised into Bueller, just so Prowl go "Bueller... Bueller.... Bueller..."

Well, I like the Hoist redeco's colors. Not too happy that I'd have to get another sidways repaint to get him . . .

Um. I'm reading the ones HLJ labels as Long Howl ( :rolleyes: ) and Puzso ( ) as Longrack and Runabout... Can't compare this to the other two, of course.

Real Runabout (Sideswipe) looks cool. Too bad his robot mode is still garbage.

On closer inspection, it looks like they remolded these guys, so that they don't need minicons.

I assume "Buler" is supposed to be "Blurr".

Cyclonus seems different... There's no port for the minicon on the front.

All of them have been remolded so they don't need Mini-Cons anymore.

That's a shame, considering it was the best part of ones, like cyclonus.

Am I reading right that there's a "d" somewhere in the middle of Longrack's name?

On the Blurr/Cyclonus set, you can just about make out the name card toward the back of the first pic. "BuRa vs Ha...." is all I'm getting. And I'm not sold on the Ha. There may be a dash after BuRa, the light's wrong. It seems fair to say it's Blurr, though.

"Rongurakku".

It's "Buraa" with a dash, right.

Aaah. The fifth symbol is one of those double-consonant "tsu" thingers? With you.
