    I thought Takara did them, but I don't see any of their names listed on any of the Animated toys I own.

    Can anyone tell me who produced these?

    Thanks.

    Wow... I must say they make toys better then Takara does then... These beauts are almost 100% anime accurate... Well they are the most accurate transformers to date.

    So I guess no one really knows then? :( 

    EDIT: Nah I didn't see a Takara written on any of them.

    Hasbro designs, goes "Takara, make it like this so it can transform like this, and this piece needs to do this" and Takara sends it to them and Hasbro goes "yay/nay" ...

    Engineered and sculpted by Takara, but all of it was more or less "created" by Hasbro. Past lines have been Hasbro throwing out concepts that they want and Takara kind of doing their own thing in line with what Hasbro wants. That "agreement" through Armada/Energon/Cybertron was pretty much Hasbro getting stuck with Takara's "final decision", while now it's reversed.

    I see...

    Thanks for the info. So Takara did do them, but don't have to slap their lable on the TF somewhere?

    Takara was bought out by Tomy way back when, right? I think Tomy just decided that Takara wasn't important enough to be marked on the toys so now they just read Hasbro & Tomy. If you look hard enough, you should find it. I remember my Deluxe Cyb Prime had (C) TOMY molded somewhere on it.

    I'll take Takara over Hasbro any day! Galaxy Force was totally awesome. This new Animated garbage should be a side line.
