public outcry about naming of pcc figure in england

are you as stoked as i am about the powercore combiner spastic and his stunticon drones?
well if you live in england or indeed in the rest of europ you will have to order from sources from america if you want him.
hasbro was forced to recall all shipments of the janurary five pack from chelves in england as the name "spastic" is considered to be offensive to people who suffer from moter nuron problems over hear, where as in america the term is used to describe someone who is clumsy or foolish.
my personal view on this is that it is political corectness gone mad just as in the case with the renaming of slag to snarl in animated.
what do you guys think?
i personally will not let a naming issue stop me from buying this green and yello beauty

This whole thing is just completely ridiculous, IMO.
