here's a short vid about the change. Personally, I liked the sound of Kong better, but this fits his theme I guess....

Recently had the chance to hold a Roach and compare it to my McBeth Prototype. The McBeth disc felt shallower and the rim was more rounded. I haven't had the chance to hold any of the Lunas, so I have no direct comparisons to make of it.

Is there a source on this? I'd like to see it out of curiosity. Doesn't seem like the dog toy company would have much of a case since the two items are substantially dissimilar in all categories.

Yeah, I have my doubts. Sounds more like McBeth just didn't like the name. It really doesn't fit with the naming scheme of the rest of his discs.

If you have something trademarked it's best to enforce the trademark. That's why they pay the lawyers.

I would totally throw a Zuul, Gozer and definitely a Vigo. When someone asks what you just threw, you say "He is Vigo!" Vinz Clortho, not so much.

With 3 discs, and 1 being his grandma's name, not sure we're really seeing any pattern yet, but it might be coming together more than 3 names from very different thought spaces as before.

Too bad the name Gatekeeper is already taken, because Gatekeepers and Keymasters would be a great combo.
