why they recycled the RID names? Yes, they have the usual trouble with trademark, but thisnames are not the best i heard - not G1, not a good namethat they must to "preserve", IMO. Oh, why Tankor for something that is not a Tank is a mistery for me (Italian)

Considering there are tanker trains, I believe the name makes more sense in this application than the original.

Would you prefer they were all called Astrotrain? As usual, Hasbro wanted name recognition without giving them all unrelated handles (like Swindle). The RID names are their best shot for that.

Personally, I can't wait. Can never have enough Micros.

.... could, eventually, make sense for the combined robot mode, for the same reason (poor english)

Hey Fallenone. Banned from posting in News eh? I don't think this posting as a guest gimmick you're running right now will help you get your normal posting rights back...

Anyway, trains. Always good. I just hope they don't end up as KB Exclusives like the last 2 sets.

Remember how the packaging had six languages? That was the European one.

Now here's the American one... with a small surprise.

Oh, and the name "Railbots"...

So they are using the grey? Excellent.

Looks closer at ebay link. Ah, I see. It's grey, but the glare makes it look gold if you only glance at it . . .
