    Needless to say, my heart is broken. Words cannot describe the impact that he had on the children of this world, and those who are still young at heart. His spark will carry on in the hearts of those who played with one of his toys. Rest well Mr. Sato, you\'ve earned it. Do not grieve for him, he is one with the matrix now, until that day when all are one.

    Sad for sure, but very grateful for the mark he made on toys. Plenty of happy moments from my childhood and an appreciation of figure design as an older fan are both thanks to this man. RIP.

    ...That's some...Interesting choice of...uh...Toys, there...*Cough*

    In any case, 94...That's a good long run. RIP.

    To be fair, that logo is a lot more innocent looking in it's simplicity compared to those dolls. XD

    Can you please show some restraint? You're virtue signaling in a place where people are mourning a mans death who was crucial to the creation of Transformers, and that's only one of the things to his name. Show some respect.

    You find these harmless little dolls offensive, we're all very impressed with your opinion and moral fortitude.

    Christ. All you had to say was "RIP".

    As in the " demise" of TT as an independent Transformer producer?
    Good God I hope not. That will be utterly decastating.
