LISTENER QUESTIONS
077_06_LQ1
From Updatedude (KING)
Dear Repacked,

What if Hasbro decided to partner with another Japanese company to bring their properties to the western/worldwide market?

What if Hasbro brought Kamen Rider over as Marvel Legends style figures with comparable prices? Would you be supportive of such a line by actually buying this stuff or would you stick to Figuarts? Do you think such a line could fly or would kids not dig leather clad bugmen?

Toyanara.


From Andy Bentley:
077_07_LQ2
I wasn’t gonna write in. I really wasn’t. Not even with Albie name checking me. But Craig had to say “If people want to pay 3X as much for a toy they’ll get down the track then that’s up to them”.

To the internets…

http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/search.aspx?search=takara+masterpiece

  • MP Cars – $80 USD
  • Larger MPs (Prime, Magnus, Starsaber, Soundwave) – $180 Average
  • Fans Toys Perceptor (Tesla) – $120
  • Fans Toys Insecticons – $80
  • Fans Toys Dinobots – $200
  • Warbotron combiner limbs – $89
  • XTransbots Apollyon – $150

Now there are definitely some outliers (I’m looking at you, Dystopia), but for the most part these are comparable prices which is amazing given the low production run these companies are operating at. There’s something else at play here which causes all the fights on the TF boards.

Here’s my final take on this. Like most adult toy collectors, I want the display shelf of the toys of my youth which probably is only attainable in my dreams. If getting one step closer means buying from another producer, so be it. How many of us haven’t combined DC classics with DC collectibles or Marvel Select with Marvel Legends in order to fill out a team or get someone in their right costume?

Ah who am I kidding, I’m just cranky cause Gianni somehow gets to be on the show and I don’t

😉

Thanks for broadcasting Repackers,

-Andy

http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-news/conventions-15/botcon-announces-kojin-ono-as-convention-guest-182810/
NOTE: KOJIN ONO is a designer for Takara-Tomy and was the key creative force behind the introduction of Car Robots in Japan, the converting robots that would be at the core of the 1984 launch of a “new” toy line known as “The Transformers”. The robot known as “Sunstreaker” was the first of his designs, but would hardly be the last. Hound, Bluestreak, Sideswipe, Trailbraker, The Dinobots, The Constructicons… All of these amazing design were brought to diecast metal life by Kojinsan, who it should be mentioned, was part of the initial class of Transformers Hall of Fame inductees back in 2010 along with Peter Cullen, Bob Budiansky, and Takara’s lead designer on Transformers, Hideaki Yoke.
