...barber seat foot support bwa?!!
no i didnt check if it had a hasbro stamp also.
There is more than one company named Takara.
Takara's foot supports are way better than Hasbro's because they have more metal and paint aps.
....some are a bit unstable when transformed though.
are those the pre-rub versions?
old news : lucky draw done a limited gold one
...i hear that's being re-released to go with Nike Convoy and Megatron.
yeah they also bringing shockshave as a re-release. this time he can store 2 graders instead of one though,
Next release in the masterpiece line, MP-06, also comes with a straight razor, but the American release will have an orange blade instead of the normal aluminum finish.
Good thing those laws don't apply in Sweden
Good luck smuggling thoose into the states
Turns out the orange "blade" is only a small plastic guard that can easily be removed without damaging the real blade underneath.
Customs agents were dumbfounded after learning of the subterfuge. One had this to say:
"Those sneaky bastards."
Transformer fans responded with a collective sigh of ambivalence.
Yeah my local barber has that as well.
Hope they make some hair trimmers too. Need to shave my head soon.
Pain in the arse to kitbash, way too complex.
I'd like to see the one that's not battle damaged
Okay, before this thread completely fuzzes out, I have my own Takara to add. I was reading some old issues of Railroad Model Craftsman and found ads for Takara-brand brass locomotives in the early to mid '60s. (at the time, imported, handmade brass models from Japan were very popular in model railroading). Their logo was a diamond-shape with a diamond-gemstone in it, above the word "Takara" (which is appropriate enough, since IIANM the word means "treasure").
Now, did our Dakko-chan-mascoted Takara ever make brass models, or is this like Takara beer or this barber chair, just another use of a Cool Name, or even something the importer just cooked up?
in sort-of related news, almost a hundred years before the NES came out, Nintendo existed as a card making company º_o
Odd thing is that the barber chair making Takara has an office here in Brazil...
I was just going to mention that. Which leads to the possibility that the ads Autobus Prime found could be from the same Takara, but from a time before they made robot toys. (Though I would still doubt the footrest is the some Takara.)
Diecast comstruction....its a lost art...
