    Just like the title says. I think they'll do it, but take off the atomic symbols and call it something else to have it seem less offensive. Why do you think thy will or won't?

    I think I can kinda see what you're getting at... :peoples: 

    I think they will probably release him eventually in some form or another.

    darn.
    if takara animated Lugs looks really good, that will make a 3rd version of the same mold for me.

    i like the mold, but i really want to keep adding newer molds, lol.

    No. Takara very seldomly releases toys from a showline in a deco that they don't actually sport in the show as a mainline figure (Beast Wars Returns [Beast Machines] is a prime example of that kind of mentality). That said, Takara seems to be changing things up as there have been a few releases in Takara's Animated line that have been contrary to that mentality, Elite Guard Bumblebee and Blazing Lockdown, so it is possible.

    Another odd aspect of Takara's Animated line has been the video game tie in with the cards, which include decos like Freeway Jazz, Vortex Blurr, and even a redeco of Arcee. If figures will be coming of them are unknown or if they were just art to fill up all the game cards.

    That said, I doubt several of the redeco's of the Activators, Atomic Lugnut, Roadbuster Ultra Magnus, or Shadowblade Megatron will be released over there.

    While Takara/Tomy isn't COMPLETELY done with Animated, I'm pretty sure they're MOSTLY done with Animated, and ready to transition to United as the next 'main' line.

    It could go either way, but most of the redecos so far are show related or have some retooling.

    About the only redecos that are not show-accurate you can expect from TakaraTomy are
    1) Convoy/Optimus Prime in black
    2) slavish G1 homages.

    And instead of wildly speculating about potential Japanese sensibilities ("WOO TEH JAPANES GOT BOMBED DURING WWII YOU THINK THEYD CALL A TOY ATOMIC LUL"), I'd suggest to ask our resident Japanese members to weigh in on that matter instead.

    No way. Because its such a derrick wyatty insane concept for a powered up Form. They can't handle our awesome American stylings. Take Solace in this:

    The upcoming hasbro reveal the shield voyager Lugnut is coming in atomic lugnut colors. And the takara version of that figure is in regular lugnut colors.
