To each his own. Here is my 2 cents. It is just business for Takara to get some more life out of a Mold that is pre existing. As some have said. This type of practice is common for more than just Takara. There is also other factors that some are not considering. What if this was never the plan. What if the fact that Fanstoys Hoodlum was shown to be packaged with a targetmaster led Takara to decide this. It’s market competition. What if they decided that there are fans out there that wanted MP-40 to be released like he is being, that there is a market for this serperate release. I for one am a stickler for accuracy and never wanted MP28 to have a target master seen as he he is made to be a representation of 86’ Movie Hot Rod. I am very glad I am gettin a ‘Rebirth’ accurate targetmaster Hot Rod. I very much doubt that Takara sat there and said “how about we mug off our fanbase”. I not sure it’s fair to expect a company like Takara to reveal their upcoming releases so far in advance and further more, their plans for existing Molds. This has never been the rule so far so why expect it here. We do have to power to not buy these things. If they don’t suit your needs. Don’t buy them.
