Europe doesn't have Universe.

I can make out German, Spanish, Italian and Dutch.

For those who can't see the pic because TFW 2005 is having downtimes again:

Didn't Rail Racer originally appear in RiD? And only composed of 3 trains?

More to the point, they're all different characters in this line.

Is it being released stateside? I heard a rumor that they might be european exclusives. I have sixliner, but I'd love to get my hands on this version as well. Rail Racer was definitely a favorite of mine in RID, if only because he did the hammy superhero so well . . .

They repackaged the Micromasters (Defensor and Devastator) as "Energon" (released in the UK, Netherlands, Scandinavia and Greece), because Europe doesn't have Universe.

Did the Razorclaw and Primal you mentioned come in trilingual or hexalingual packaging?
