    Sad news. I hope he felt he left this world better than he found it. What a nice legacy knowing he brought so much happiness to so many.

    Wow, that is sad news. At least he lived a long life (94). Also shocked he got his Doctorate in Engineering at 84!!!

    According to the article he passed away on March 26, 2019.

    I can only be grateful for all the joy and happyness your beautiful toys gave me since i was a little pup.
    Takara sf land legacy will live on forever (in me at least) and so will your memory.

    I'd love to know when I'm going to die like he does.

    Obviously without Takara, there is no TransFormers. So he left a legacy.
