Takara doesn't rely solely on "Otaku" sales.. LMAO.
Well, I just ordered a Twin Twist since he'll be coming in soon. I never did find one at retail and he was the only figure in the wave worth getting to me and ebay prices are crazy nuts (more for the Hasbro version then the Takara one, gross).
.... Why would Hasbro even give a shit about you then? You would just be telling them that you don't buy their stuff and wait for the "superior" Takara release... Which Takara doesn't give a shit about either. They sell to Asian countries, Asian stores. If those stores turn around and make some of that Asian directed product available to Westerners as well then that's for the store to care about.
This is so much ridiculous wishful thinking. Companies don't cut back and then decide to jump right back into the situation that made them cut back in the first place. By cutting back on a product line that isn't selling well as a "premium" and instead selling a "standard" cheap version of the figure Takara isn't gonna be bleeding cash on said money losing product line. They can then instead invest that money into product lines that ARE selling. This isn't rocket science with some sort of secret method of success. If you're bleeding out you stop the bleeding or cut off the limb. Just be thankful they aren't "cutting off the limb" that is Transformers.

Wow that legends fire convoy set was way more than I expected.
I actually prefer the Hasbro Jumpstarters, but the differences are negligible. Seeing the ridiculous prices the Hasbro ones are going for I ended up selling mine (hadn't even opened Twin Twist yet!) to justify the tiny bit more for the Takara ones, with the Targetmasters - that was the real draw for me. I don't mind getting aftermarket replacement weapons for the Jumpmasters to keep, and the Targetmasters will be used elsewhere.
Somebody please sell me those Targetmasters. :3
Original price was going for 30K Yen fyi.
Which is why I got it from Amazon. Always cheaper.
