Meh, nothing exciting this month. What is that announcement in the lower left corner of the second page?
Confirmation of a neck swivel on Sludge's dinosaur mode there!
Looks like some information about the Japanese translation of the original Marvel comics. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
From the pictures looks like Sludge makes a better arm than leg, at least for me. Still unsure if I really want these dinobots...
Neat. Shame that they don't look all that different from the Hasbro versions (if there are any changes at all), but my wallet could use a little breather anyway.
So that's how the dino head on Sludge looks when rotated in leg mode... suddenly the dead-dino-as-a-leg look doesn't seem as bad.
Also, what's with not opening up Snarl's tail in leg mode? Did Takara inherit Hasbromistransformationitis now that their decos are identical?
"Quick we need to sell Dreadwind and Darkwing to Japan."
That is correct.
Or did Hasbro open it up when they shouldn't have?
Gilmer/Submaurader is pretty much one of the only things I wanted from Takara because I hoped they would paint the inner bot.... disappointing.
I like that look for the leg mode.
(Snarl, not Sludge!)
I'd never thought I use this word in a posting, looks kinda...
Looks better that way, now Volcanicus doesn’t have to worry about tripping over himself while walking.
Does anyone not know where to leave negative feedback Takara-Tomy on the PP line?
The neck swivel and closed Snarl tail make Volcanicus look great.
I like what l see with the Dinobots. Snarl looks great as an arm, and l do like Sludge as a leg.
The same places I used to complain about the sikomofo comics in the Legends toys, probably.
Here is their HQ:

This is Takara's contact page:
(JAPANESE LANGUAGE ONLY).
Takara also has a customer service phone number, printed on the boxes, but that service is in Japanese language only too.
Edit: - It's worth remembering here, that companies don't really pull products from shelves unless the law steps in or they think inaction will have serious public backlash (damaging profits). However, feedback/complaints are useful, especially if they can be linked to low sales or other data. This may then shape FUTURE decisions by companies.
I would recommend keeping letters short, polite and avoid rants (that's what forums like this are for). Be as formal and professional as possible, and explain the problem, while stating what you did or will do yourself to solve this problem. Then, if you wish, suggest some broad ideas (but not specific product ideas, it it'll never get past legal). Also, as it's to Takara, type it in very simple English sentences (maybe with only 1 clause each), avoiding pronouns and other vague vocabulary. Then, use Google translate. Usually, I would get a Japanese speaker to check it for me, but if that's not possible, then post the Japanese part first and then (if there is space) post the original English version under it.
Be aware though, that the email service link above may not get a reply. However, if you print out the same letter and post it to them, you might have a greater chance of getting a reply.
Here is a sample letter and some similar advice:
- How to write an effective complaint letter
For the record, I've had some great luck, especially with indie/mobile devs, online shops, restaurants and even Takara themselves! Once, Takara actually helped me (even when it wasn't their fault) by sending me TWO G1 Tigertrack toys that a seller didn't send to me. They only had minimal proof from me, plus it wasn't them that sold them (It was via Million Publishing, I believe). To this day, I've used Takara as the standard for any company's customer service to strive for.
I believe that "Evil comes when good people do nothing". Take action by contacting companies, and also by not buying their products, if you can (and telling them!)
Do you literally have nothing else going on in your life so that you can devote 100% of your time to hating the Legends comic? Or do you just have a Post-It note on your monitor reading "remember to trash SAKAmoto at every opportunity"? Because you bring it up in just about EVERY thread.
On-topic: anyone else notice TT is using the extra Volcanicus hands to make the feet larger instead of filling in the torso?
Submarauder? how about the Dreadwing/darkwind duo... not being the japanese characters? ?
