    TakaraTomy has added a program to their G1 Website that you can download. They have dubbed it "Transformers Internet". This executable file has commercials, web links to retail websites and more. You can download it by clicking Here.

    Thanks to <a href="http://www.transformertoys.co.uk/index.php" target="_blank">TF@TM</a> for the news.

    Boy, I sure as hell wish I could get an internet coupon book downloaded onto my computer, vaguely themed around the Transformers.

    WAIT A MINUTE! MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED!

    I guess the fact that it's Windows only and Macs are locked out isn't something I need to worry about then? ;-)

    I hope TakaraTomy make their own 'create your own Transformer name' type of game.

    It would be identical to Hasbro's, but instead will have less names ending with 'blast,' and will have more names based upon the combining of random english words in a manner that doesn't actually make sense in english or japanese.

    Oh, and will also have names that are just normal human names. Like Glen. He's a crane!

    In this case, you should be down right thankful. The commercials are nothing special and everything else is just a link to buy TakraTomy toys at different retailers.

    Folks:

    So, is Takaratomy really floundering about in a directionless morass of random questionable ideas, or is that just the impression I get from the occasional bits of news we get?

    Floundering indeed. This was a bad merger.

    Its actually business as usual for Takara and Tomy - as I recall they haven't been doing too well for the past few years. In particular their 'flagship' lines such as Zoids have slowed down considerably.

    But they're still the second largest toy company in Japan, which says something about Bandai's stranglehold there.

    I would assume it will take the rest of the year to get their ducks in a row. Then they'll re-release all the BTs, only this time they will all have trailers and cost twice as much.
