Chinese TF MMO

China is getting its own TF online game independent of the one Jagex is doing for the western world.

Mind-blowing array of new TFs plus mind-shattering Engrish.

They have really cool names, too! Here are accurate bio translations (so we can see what the actual names are):

Very in-keeping with the fact that Optimus Prime's name in China is "Pillar that Supports the Sky."

I like Furious Fist of the Fortress and Stormy War Song.

Also good, yes.

Now, what are the odds of getting toys of these guys? Or at least a really weird Botcon set? (STEAL THIS IDEA! THIS ONE!)

And y'know what? I'd be cool with that. I'd just order my favorite one from BBTS.

And you are more evolved in your outlook than some fans, for it. The inability to grasp that a rising economic force with billions of inhabitants that made a good chunk of DoTM's billion might warrant its own repaint toys is a little unsettling.

I have seen fans not just annoyed but unable to grasp that Hasbro might sell toys in Asia but not the US.

I like Nebula Ripper the best. That one actually sounds like a good TF name (or maybe a starship or weapon name) even if you don't take into account Engrish humor.

The game is interestingly part of the "Prime" side of the Aligned continuity family (as opposed to sharing w. WfC/FoC).

Yeah, we knew Jagex's was (remember the Prime-style Barricade, Prowl and Clench standees from Botcon 11) but not the Chinese game. They fit the look!
