Yep he's supposed to br Dai Atlas, little kids wont understand the Dai part, which probably means king, also Simon Furman said that Hasbro granted full access to all series of TF's so expect some G1 Japanese characters.

Actually AA I have researched this very much and it is Dai Atlas, ask Simon Furman, and Glen Hallit said that any G1 colors are who the characters are, but I am pretty sure Inferno and Ratchet were mistakes.

It's Dai Atlas, even if its just a parrallel universe version. No way the average consumer with little to no Japanese familiarity would have understood what "Dai" meant. Furman even said so himself. And when it comes from the mouth of a respected name with a longtime connection to TF outside fan circles, (Especially since he's WRITING the TFU comic) Im going to be a bit more partial to what HE says.

 

And Hallit IS a Hasbro employee, and still connected to the TF part, particularly the fanclub regardless if he actually works on the actual toys. So he'd be a bit more likely to be privvy to how things are working at Hasbro than any of us fans.

 

Speaking of which, here are some cooll King/Dai Atlas pics

Okay DOC EVIL your right he is Dai Atlas, but no Glen does not work for Hasbro but with them, also AA Glen said that he was a major player in the Universe toyline, its basically his toyline, if you ever went to OTFCC then you saw the Universe Skywarp back in 2002 which was planned to be an exclusive origonally.

Where did you find this quote? I haven't really read much on the Universe storyline, and I'm curious to see where it's going.

 

From what I heard, Hasbro only has control over the American series/toys, and Takara controls everything that was exclusive to Japan. But there are exceptions in that some Japanese characters have been released in the US in the Heroes Of Cybertron PVC line, and so they can (and likely will, as Brad Mick said in Toyfare magazine) appear in Dreamwave's G1 series.

Where did i get it well OTFCC of course, oh and now that Hasbro Takara are working close together we'll see more G1 Japanese characters, like Sunstorm(I lnow he's new), Overlord, and of course Dai Atlas. So thank glen greatly.

Forgot to mention, Glen said that the mold the character was is who it is now, except for origonal color schemes, and Reptillion was going to be Iguanus.
