    Are they over and done with or what? I haven't seen any news about these since Blaster came out back in March!

    Normally we'd at least know who the next two releases are going to be...

    Has the Takara/Tomy merge killed this line? I'd really like to know if we're likely to see any more G1 reissues as I loved collecting them.

    Takara never announces when a line ends. They kind of just stop making toys for it. But prospects don't look good.

    It's a good while since they were so open about what was comming next in the line.


    Based on some of Tomy's recent moves, if the TFC line does come back, we can be pretty sure the price is going up.

    And there will be creepy fetish anime girls, and the colors will be inaccurate for no damn good reason.

    I think that comment was our clue about the little anime girls in the KISS line. Sadly, that's the kind of thing that appeals to adults in Japan. We want the toys. :(
