    So disappointing. I was really hoping.

    Since New York Toy Fair was also canceled, and since TakaraTomy these days is Hasbro's *ahem* bitch, I'm assuming that TT is waiting on Hasbro's lead for a web announcement in lieu of Toy Fair toward the end of February. Kind of disappointing that there's not much new Diaclone news either, though they did reveal that Gridman collab a few days back.

    You’re pretty edgy bro. Cool. Any reason you’re talking out of that side of your face?

    One of the mods here live in Japan and speaks Japanese AFAIK. I just assumed that this info has been feted.

    What a downer.

    Dengeki Hobby will continue to provide coverage. Some of the manufacturers they've covered weren't on the dealer list on WonFes main page, so there might still be a chance that TT is participating.

    Best bet is to keep checking the Dengeki Hobby page.

    Interesting ideas, such a shame they contradict literally everything we know and all past experiences.

    We have zero evidence to suggest that TT are in any way bound to Hasbro regarding announcements of stuff that's exclusively within their domain (i.e. MPs).

    Hope is not a strategy. If there's at least a mention of Takara Tomy on the Wonderfest website, I would be more inclined to believe that we'll get something out of today's event, but nope. Reading Katakana isn't exactly rocket science.

    Good point here. Just noticed Sentinel posted some breaking news and IIRC they had NO mention on the official WF page. So MAYBE we still have a chance?

    Sentinel is just giving a preview of their own event. The main announcement will happen later this month. Apparently they have some combining Riobots coming.

    From what I was seeing after translating both tweets and Dengeki's report, i'm seeing no mention of an event of their own, only mention of more details coming later this month.

    Sorry I meant that whole Riobots thing is the event.

    You're good, my guy.

    Considering that they threw in the WonFest hashtag, i'm taking every chance I can get of hope that Takara just pulls an Undertaker and just magically appears tonight.

    @chchchch @lord ginrai I'm still rolling my dice here...

    Though so far, Medicos is the winner tonight by giving me just a single item.

    Next would be Takara getting out of producing any more MPs and just licensing the characters ;)

    Let's face it. Star Cream alone is probably plenty for the year. Imagine using a Cream usually reserved for Stars.
