Is it the wrong time to point out that Hasbro apparently haven't registered the name "Decepticharge" with the US Patent and Trademark Office yet?

I'm guessing they won't be making any more Honda-based Alternators, or Honda-based anything for a while now... a while like forever.

Wow...I wonder how Dead End was given a normal name and not something like DeceSwipe.

I really hope that Takara releases this one as Dragstrip. Really, we lost a perfect Breakdown [Wheeljack], if we lose another stunticon I'll go nuts

Now, is this one going to see general release or is it one of those club exclusives? Curious because I saw it on the announced preorder list in News earlier.

Yeah, because that would make perfect sense for a sports car.:rolleyes:

In any case, Decepticharge is a pretty poor piece of work from the naming dept. Hopefully it's just the dummy packaging so Hasbro knows it's leaked, in similar fashion to the dirty paint earlier sported by this mould.

Some days, I think Hasbro does things like this for laughs, just so they can watch us fans try to make coherent sense of the monkeywrenchs they throw in the works.

Oh,and if his color was a little lighter,Decepticharge wouldn't be a bad name for it.

Wow with his high tech scanner Decepticharge could be anywhere....even your local supermarket!!

" I need a pricecheck on Mr. Snuffles brand dog food .... *disgruntledness*.... how degrading this is...*goes back to scanning barcodey goodness*

They should have called him Frenzy....that would have gotten a good response out of all the FIRRIB people out there lol

Only if the entire first wave of Cybertron is also a Collectors' Club exclusive.

Decepticharge is numbered "14". Exclusives usually aren't numbered as part of the regular release line.

Even if they were, they wouldn't reveal themselves.

Because they'd be heckled?

At first I thought it was 'Depth Charge' which wouldn't be too bad. Then I saw 'Decepticharge'. Just wondering, how the **** did we go from Megatron, to Drag Strip then to Decepitcharge?!

EDIT: When does a Hasbro product has 'Destron Oil' on it?

Also, what about those pics we saw a couple of weeks ago? Did they show the Lisence plate? I have a feeling that the more 'dirty' version was Takara and this is Hasbro ...
