Took the words out of my mouth.
Oh my God, YES!
Pre-ordering these on sight!
Well, that's great if you're in the base market where Takara stuff is sold at retail, but anywhere else (like the US) and you have to pay a good bit more for import fees and whatnot. You really have to judge as to whether the added bits of paint and slight retools are worth double to triple standard retail.
So far, I've been pretty happy with my "Hasbro shit".
But how Paradron Medic?
Nautica when Takara?
Well, at least Takaratomy is not predictable like Hasbro- nothing 'wow' and surprising about their character choices/ releases. Case in point: A frickin' Deluxe Groove which is ENTIRELY a new mould. I'd like to see Hasbro raise the bar and at least TRY and bother about being BETTER that its Japanese counterpart. Oh wait...nah, never-mind..
Oh, and because I actually live in the 'base market' i.e., Asia- I'm glad to be able to buy these Takatom imports with considerable ease...
Will they even make that set?
I'm not so sure.
Rook wasn't an entirely new mold with a surprising new character?
Cyclonus and Prime as combiner torsos weren't surprising to anybody?
You were fully expecting a set of limbs based on the Masquerade storyline?
Or Legends Stripes of all things?
Well those are certainly some interesting... additions to Blackarachnia. Definitely not a retool I see Hasbro utilizing in the future. If her paintjob is actually impressive she might actually be worth more than half of what she'll cost.
yes, those repaints were very surprising..
those limbs have nothing to do with masquerade.. if they did, they would've actually used the characters from the episode. .. oh, my bad, i forgot that hasbro isn't quite aware of which characters comprise each combining team. they've proven that so far.
Hasbro already has a predictable pattern set up, from the start with Prime into Motormaster, and Alpha Bravo.
And months ago I did see lots of people suggest Masquerade figures.
They're doing Ultra Prime so why not.
To be honest, I'm not understanding why TakTom felt the need to remold those spider fangs into breasts for bot mode. Didn't the original version already have those, just smaller?
Or was it that they were TOO small?
Ah that's right.
Carry on then.
Takara = respect fandom and original G1 roots/ nostalgia. They care from the bottom of their hearts. They make me want to buy their stuff. They really put in 100% effort and take great care and detail in posting and packaging their toys. They get fans. paint apps, now these new fembots, original G1 combiner members ..the list goes on.. why I dont see you guys actually praising and admitting that Takaratome are clearly superior in every department that their sister company is beyond me..
Habsro = making new, and frankly uninspired characters like Rook, Alpha Bravo just to sell their stuff... Hasbro's marketing and distribution is horrendous to say the least. Dont get me even started about their packaging shots, and not to mention photoshopped crap.
Thanks to her remolding Blackarachnia isn't going to have a robot abdomen.
That might look pretty bad.
Every single one is bought!
Why must u boast about it? What's the point of it?
Dude I'm also from Asia but I don't feel the need to brag about it.
They couls pass for palps for me if it's not mis transformed.
i hope they learn from Arcee, Chromia and Windblade and made tons of them so there is no stock shortage.
