I just got a mail from a contact in Japan. The information I got: - Takara held a business talk meeting for spring yesterday. - The information posted on TFormers might be taken from a Japanese message board. Of course, without a source cited, it's hard to tell. - He (my contact) doesn't think there's necessarily a deeper meaning, because "surprise project" appears to be a cliché term fot Takara (?). - He does hope it will indeed be something major, though he wouldn't exactly hold his breath.
