3. In the StarTV dub of Headmasters, name three characters whose names they got wrong? Which character was misnamed "Grimlock"?

Never read GI Joe TF crossovers. I refuse to believe they exist.

15. Aside from Name two characters in the Marvel Universe who have come in direct contact with characters from the Transformer Universe.

Bonus: What character came in contact with a pseudo-Optimus Prime and where?
1]I'm not a fan of G.I.JOE comics and when I found out that they lanuched the G2 story from it I beat myself with a stick for a week but I think your talking about Skydive and Hotspot but if I'm wrong please let me know.And since I dont have the book I cant answer the Bonus

2] The idea behind her creation was so that Transformers could better understand what its like to be human and for humans to see that they might not be so much different then they were

3]Spike, Blaster and Blurr as for the miss naming it's a two part answer I beleave..... one of the times was the Trainbots combined form and in an other it was one of the team members.I'm not sure what their english name would have been but it their Japain names were ether Getsuei or Shouki and their combined form was called Raiden.

4] The only thing I can think of is that Vector Sigma aka the Oracle was concidered a mith to most TF's in that time frame and could only be acsessed by a receptive Transformer or with the a Key but untill Tanko recreated one there wasnt one around since the episode the key to vevtor sigma 1&2

5]This one kinda like a trick question.....Victory, Mastorforce,Zone[but it was only one episode] Beast wars 2nd and Beast wars neo [both having a Convoy but no Megatron] And Transformers Headmasters [Optimus being only in 2 or 3 episodes but no Megatron and there was one more but I forget the name it had live action Humans transformering into animals and was on fox tv.

6] The Key to vecto sigma,The return of Optimus Prime and The rebirth if there are any mor let me know.

7] You got me on this one please let me know

8]Because in winning the fight he caused the death of some video game life forms.and the programer of the game was Ethan Zachary

9] I dont have many of the UK books but I think its the Earthforce am I right?

10] Highbrow and Gort

11]I think your talking about Tarantulas and it would be Unicron......but as far as I'm conserened its not been provin.If its some one else let me know.

12]I think it was called Transtech or Transtek

13]The only thing I can think of was the fight that broke out when they let poeple try out the demo for the video game

14] What do you mean by fanon?

15] This last question and the Bonus is quite confusing.......can you please redefine it?

Skydive and Hot Spot indeed survived. Chase (miscolored white), Brawn, Steeljaw, Overdrive were the rest.

Incorrect, she was created to appease a group of feminists.

It was revealed that BW "Megatron" had been hacking the information the whole time. The "continuity errors" were that he names himself at the end (inconsistent with the first episode of Beast Wars) and the Disc he is holding is the wrong Golden Disc.

Yes
Quote:

Neil Kaplan got drunk and started a verbal fight with Gabe Kapler when it was revealed Gabe would be voicing Prime.

Canon that is created by fans. Taking away one of your answers, "seekers" is fanon since no canon sources created the name seekers.

Name two characters from the Marvel Universe (616) who came in direct contact with characters from the Transformers Universe (remove the Aside)...hint: Nick Fury wouldn't count.

THere. Some of those are hard.
1 and 2] there were many bad guys.please expand on your question

3] your question is misleading....the name drill bit has been used more then once.In the beast wars Drillbit and Drill nuts were the same toy mold.In armada he was a min-con.

4]Not in the Beast wars line wether or not he has since been remolded is questionable

5] mostly the the paint job and a remold of the pull over head gear.But I'm shocked that you didnt mention MAX B....an other remold of the same toy with yet an other paint job and a new head mold and a remold his wepons.He is the new body for Beaset Wars the 2nd BB.
