    Takara's foot supports are way better than Hasbro's because they have more metal and paint aps.

    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.

    Just announced:

    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.

    Folks:

    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?

    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.)
