    No it's not, Hasbro doesn't get to carry over a license that Takara obtains, they're 2 separate companies that need to acquire licensing separately.

    2 separate companies in 2 separate countries with different licensing laws. Hasbro has to obtain licensing separate from Takara. That's part of why Hasbro imports MP figures now instead of producing their own domestic versions. It's technically not their product so they don't need to obtain the licensing for the alt modes. Hasbro obtained the VW license from VW, they didn't get it by proxy when Takara got it.

    However they obtained the license, since Hasbro has to produce a VW Bug alt mode, then it can be surmized that it was in part from when Takara produced and released the MP version that they'll have to get the license. They have a unified product release for the WFC line, so Hasbro has to release a VW Bug too. That's what I'm pointing out.

    No, it can't. What can be surmised is that Hasbro decided they wanted to do Bumblebee as his VW mode (like they claimed in a live stream when he was announced) so they sought out the license to do it right (again, mentioned in it's announcement live stream). Hasbro obtained the license through their own means, not through Takara like you are trying to imply and they would have to do so for any licensing deal.

    Correct. Having worked in a company where we licensed character content from Disney. WB, etc., this is how it works. Our divisions in other countries had their own licensing process and licenses for use are not shared.

    I said it was a carry-over as part of them making the product (Takara release of MP VW BB as precursor). As a follow up, I even mentioned that "however they obtained the license", the bottom line is/was they (Hasbro) wanted/needed to produce a VW bug.

    In any case, this is the Collaborative thread for JP/TF. Let's get back on the rails.

    Looking forward to the release of this set.

    It has nothing to do with the MP figure. Why can't you accept that? They even addressed the VW license in the Netflix wave 2 fan friday and not once mentioned the MP figure.


    To be on topic, is anyone else going to pair JP93 with the BW/BM Dinobots subgroup as their liason/handler for communicating with the Autobots?

    Let me see if I can clarify. When Takara did the MP21, Takara had to get the license from VW. Fast forward to WFC, Both Takara and Hasbro wanted to go back to the VW Beetle Alt mode. Being that they already did that type of design with MP, they redesigned it to suit the new line. And yes, I understood that they collectively had to get a new license from VW.


    I wonder if there will be other JP crossovers that will be made.

    The licensing for the WFC figure has NOTHING to do with the MP figure beyond a prior license existing (for the original MP figure that Hasbro did release domestically). That's it. Period. Hasbro didn't need a license for MP-21 because they didn't release MP-21 as one of their own products, so there was nothing to be "carried over". Hasbro had to obtain the license specifically for the WFC figure. Takara's licensing for the VW Beetle has absolutely nothing to do with Hasbro getting the license for the VW Beetle.

    I didn't say it did. All I was trying to say is that it started with the use of the VW Bug for Bumblebee when Takara did the MP. Licensing had to be done. Hasbro and Takara doing the WFC line having the VW Bug will necessitate the licensing renewal.

    Yea, I thought of it the other day while looking at my Beast Era Dinobots and Kingdom Grimlock and the idea hit me

    Nice backpedal

    You heavily implied (via your choice of words) that Hasbro was somehow using Takara's VW license since they both released the same physical toy, and that the license for the WFC VW is the same as the one obtained for MP-21 (which was produced in 2014 and Hasbro also licensed).

    You were corrected in that the license for the WFC figure is not any sort of carry over (your words) from the MP or from Takara, yet refused to accept it gracefully and decided to continue this back and forth. I'm sorry you don't like being corrected, but you were wrong in your choice of wording at least.

    If anything, the precursor would be Hasbro getting the VW license for the Bumblebee 2018 movie merchandise.

    I wished that the crossover series would at least maintain a semblance of scale (with the exception of aircraft alternate modes; those would be too big if they are to scale with CHUGs). Gigawatt was in the perfect scale for a current deluxe; Ectotron is too big while JP93 here looks slightly undersized.
    Yes there’s that price point consideration. I guess that kinda limits JP93’s size.

    Now if only hasbro take a good hard look at Jeep Bumblebee from the Studio Series and repaint it as the JP Jeep Wrangler. That’d be sweet!
