    Anything with stickers is the inferior product.

    I'm glad you felt that statement was so IMPORTANT that you had no time to proof read it before you hit post.

    If it doesn't have stickers, it's not a real Transformer.

    yup, what disrespect and utter ignorance to the man who was essentially the creator of the toys in the first place. what a douche statement. :redface2: 

    ^poor Deltastar! :( 

    ^this and QFMFT.
    Also, he deserves the highest respect. :rock

    Speaking of passing down the Transformers tradition from one generation to the next, I can see a converstion like this happening in the not too distant future:

    "Grandpa (or Grandma) you mean you used to have to transform them (by hand) yourself?"

    Great interview. I also found something kind of stylish about reflector. Its probably just the bold colorscheme and the very successful clone style trio of blocky bots.

    would be interesting to see them in a spy fiction setting useing their flash missile cannon and scanner lens.

    Clearly Hideaki Yoke continues to have fun and innovate the brand. The cybertron con hype from him at least helps me reason more of the asian market exclusives this year. Dark of the moon must have grown toy sales over there by a large margin. So now they have a growing fan base to fight for in that market. Its a game changeing decision.

    More Transformers collectors worldwide means more Transformers products. That will fund more molds we can see released here.

    Originaly quoted by-
    ''HY: Perceptor is my favorite. The 2nd is Reflector even though it is not a popular character and it has less of a transforming magic. I was totally absorbed in designing or engineering those smaller robots of pre-Transformers. These designs make me recall those days.''
    ^+1 post, dude. and I can see why Hideaki-san is fond of the Perceptor toy. two words: Diaclone Black. Magnificus. that is one killer toy. :D

    Oh man, 28 years of Transformers already? Feels like just yesterday it was 32 years old.
