Default Daily Transformers Trivia

Every day I will post at least one TF trivia question. Unlike the existing TF trivia thread, this one is just for fun. No points, no prizes (I might revisit the old thread if people want to play more competitively for prizes ).

Today's question:
What word did Unicron once use to describe how Cybertron tasted?

Answer will be posted around midnight.

You mean in the Marvel Comics? I think he said "Tasty" - Er, no wait, that was Brainstorm. I don't know, I'm defeated.

My computer broke down last night - hence no midnight answer reveal. But the answer is succulent.

Today's Q:
True or false - Titans Return Chase is called Roadburn due to trademark issues with the name Chase.

I'm more inclined to say - False.

Because there's a character named Chase in RescueBots who turns into a police car. So I don't think trademark issues was the cause of renaming the character as Roadburn.

You are correct!

New question: Which G1 Throttlebot did not have his rubsign indent removed when reissued in the early 90s?

Wideload. I got that Wideload during a trip to Adelaide, and it had a rub symbol.

Correct! Uh, are you sure you got the gold-carded reissue or was it remaining original stock from 1987? Cos although Classic Wideload still had the rub sign indent, the rub sticker was replaced with a paper non-rub sign. Could you quickly have a look at your Wideload?

The original Wideload looked like this on card:

New Question: Which G1 mail-away toy has his robot face still visible in alt mode?

My Wideload is in storage - in Malaysia! But you're right. The one I got was old stock from 1987 (it must have shelf-warmed like crazy). I remember the card was red (not gold), and it was badly creased; one of the reasons why I complained to my parents when they bought it for me - back then I liked my packaging/card to look pristine.

As for the new question - I honestly don't know off the top of my head.. I'm gonna guess. It was Cyclonus.

Not Cyclonus. He was a regular store release figure here and in every other country that I know of. Was he a mail-away exclusive in Malaysia?
Also... did Malaysia get the gold-carded/boxed Classic reissues? Cos AFAIK they were exclusive to Europe, Australia and New Zealand. I have zero knowledge about what toys were released in Malaysia but welcome any knew information.

But anyway, the answer is one of the mail-away exclusive Transformers of which there aren't too many of them... so come on, people - have a guess!

Hint: It's not Time Warrior.

I think I know the answer, but I cheated and looked it up. It's Thundercracker

I don't think we got mail-away exclusives in Malaysia.. If there was one, I never took advantage of it. As for Malaysian Transformer releases circa early-1990's, I'll answer in the Random Thoughts thread.
