    Trophy Points:
    I posted a few translated versions of TakTom staff interviews in N&R Forum, and noticed some people were interested in which designer was responsible of which toys.
    While looking for the correct readings of some of those TakTom designers' names, I've learnt about Industrial Property Digital Library.
    I'd looked up and made a list, which is what I've got here. The list is limited to recent lines, and not all of the releases are covered. I still hope this might amuse some of you guys :) 

    You can use this search page to view prototyoe images as well.
    Copy and paste 形態変化玩具 in the first box, and タカラトミー in the third, then press 検索 below. A number should appear in blue, then press 一覧表示.
    If you want to use any of the images, please do the right thing and site the source (Industrial Property Digital Library).
