Just a Christmas present I got because I already had both Powermaster Prime and God Ginrai, so we went with him instead. It was a few years before I found out who he was exactly.
Yeah, I had a similar thing with Leo Convoy.
I was buying Japanese imports from China Town NYC for years, never knowing who the characters were.
I bought Leo just because it had a Optimus looking face.Not to mention all the other BW2 and Neo figures I picked up with no clue to who the characters were.
