    Why FAKOR in USA?

    Hi, I have a question for the american members.
    I seen many times Faker named also "Fakor" in the titles of american web auctions/sales (most of times for looses vintage Faker figures).
    Fakor is the french name and I am very curious to know why some american peoples are also calling him by the french name instead just "Faker".
    I mean, I never seen an american sale saying "He-Man/Musclor" (the french name) or "Mer-Man/Oceanor", "Trap Jaw/Dentos", "Teela/Tila", "BeastMan/Le Monstre" etc etc
    So, why the "Fakor" name is so common in USA?

    Some of you got it on european cards when you were children?
    Similar to this one:

    It is maybe why some of you are calling him also by the french name?

    It's because we forget, and so many characters' names end in "or"

    I always have to think, is it Faker, or Fakor.

    Just like ... Sy-Clone or Sky-Clone, or Sy-Klone?
