You do know that Has/Tak uses sales of repaints to help offset the huge amount of money it takes to have a new mold designed, right?
TF designers don't come cheap and the design and development of a toy as complex as a TF is a long, costly process.
I'm not trying to make out like Has/Tak aren't raking in money hand over fist(I'm sure they are) but the fact is that the better repaints sell the bigger the cut of resources for the R&D teams.
tl;dr Buy more repaints = get more new molds.
