    So the name change wouldn't bug me so much if his ship's flag didn't have a big "B" on it.

    I thought his name was Basco?


  5. GodofPH Says:

    To be honest, I'd prefer a figure of Basco's human form. More emotional attachment for it...


  6. NeoD Says:

    Geez... Can't they choose a correct name?
    I always believed that the name on the Figuarts box was the correct writing (not counting Unkh since he was kinda a prototype before the Ankh Stand Set).
    But since they show his flag with a big "B" (they even show his symbol on the box), I don't know what to believe anymore...


  7. Blackfeather Says:

    Came here to say the same as the people above me.
    The flag had a large B on it.
    So how can you still make the name Vasco and not Basco.


  8. nice figure arts..if only basco was in human form.

    The "B" is for badass

    Well KR Kiva was pronounced KIBA most of the time. So yeah...I got nothing.

    so that monkey just does nothing but squats? that's kinda.....meh....


  13. Thomas Says:

    There's a simple explanation for all of this, so let's get started with Kiva as an example. The letter "v" doesn't exist in Japanese, so it's pronounced as a "b". It's the same thing with "l" and "r", respectively. That's why Kiva was always pronounced as "Kiba".

    Now, the marketing team (or whoever it is that does up the boxes and what not) aren't usually in direct communication with the team who designs and produces the figures and shows. Therefore, his name was interpreted as "Vasco" even though it's meant to be "Basco", because essentially, they had NO idea. They would have been given the name in Katakana and asked to translate it, so they basically have to guess at the names.

    As for Ankh, that's a bit different. They way we would pronounce "Ankh" in English would be "Unkh", hence when romanizing it, they changed the "A" to a "U" to make it phonetically correct. Of course, they decided to revert to the proper, direct translation for later releases.

    So, as stupid as this mistake is, it's really not anyone's fault. More so just that they were ignorant. I mean, they wouldn't sit down to watch Gokaiger with subs if they know perfect Japanese, now, would they?


  14. NeoD Says:

    @Thomas : But what about the B on the symbol?
    The marketing team, like you said, put it right in the front of the box.
    Can't they just deduced that it was "B"asco?
    Well, I say that, maybe we should wait for some official book to see how it is really written (like Kiva-la in the book : DETAIL OF HEROES 04).
