    Looking at the Japanese fan art, I think they already do.

    Buy! Buy! Buy!!!

    Hopefully high sales and praises will raise Takara eyebrows, thus encouraging them to release more characters that IDW had made popular (Wreckers, Predators, Squadron X, etc.).

    I kinda imagine it’s similar to our interest in their exclusive TV shows. The hardcore fans are interested, but otherwise isn’t that noteworthy.

    By "exclusive TV shows", do you also include anime? Because in Japan, anime is a niche product, while in North America, there are much more massive fanbases.

    I think the comment was exclusively aimed at Transformers-related media.

    Hope there's an exclusive japanese cover like their other releases. Last Stand is already popular in japan through fan translations so i feel like they might do a new cover

    I can confirm that Japanese fans follow the IDW stuff at least to some extent - when I was in Tokyo last summer one of the big specialty toy shops had a display of 3P IDW guys in a pretty prominent location, complete with a \"frame\" made out of panels from the comics.  I\'ve got photos somewhere but not on this computer.

    The idea that they\'re actually producing it for a domestic release over there is pretty heartening and a testament to exactly how frickin\' good LSOTW is.
