    Virtue signaling? Uh... yeah, somebody’s getting excited dictating the right way we should think and talk, but it isn’t the guy who voiced natural curiosity about some dolls.

    Very sad news.
    I'm such a Takara fan that I actually have one of those Dakko-chan dolls!

    In tribute to the founder of their company, they are simply obliged to make the MP Perceptor.

    You might be confusing him with Hideaki Yoke, the guy who designed the Perceptor toy.(Among others.)
    I believe he's still alive, as far as I'm aware.

    Hey, 'I' wasn't signaling nothing or said anything about being offended...Just making observations.

    Slow your roll.

    That guy.........right there......WAS FUCKING AWESOME!!! I've been collecting Transformers since day-1 in 1984. Thank you for all these awesome years. I collected all the shit from the 80's but I'll always consider myself a Transformers guy, Transformers has always been my favorite 80's toy line, I didn't even know it back in the day. But it's the only toy line I've stuck with. Back around the time GI Joe 25th fizzled out I swore off all toys except Transformers. Now that's all I buy.
