Japanese toymakers announce cost-cutting strategies for their upcoming merger

In a press meeting held yesterday, Japanese toy makers Takara and Tomy announced the first specific plans regarding business strategies after their merger on March 1, 2006. The two companies plan on reducing costs by 19 billion yen ($173 million) in the first three years after joining together as Takara Tomy. As a part of the cost cut, Takara and Tomy will lay off 15 percent of their combined workforce by next March, which accounts for 640 employees. Most of the layoffs will be on Takara's side, where there seems to be more redundancy in employee duties.

    "KB's Bankruptcy Exit Approved
    Two Former TRU Prexies on Board

    August 24, 2005
    KB Toys Inc. has announced that the company plans to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy by the end of the month. A Delaware bankruptcy court judge approved KB's latest reorganization plan (see "KB Tries Again to Exit Chapter 11") and the company indicates that it should be able to exit Chapter 11 by August 29th, a year and eight months after it received bankruptcy protection after being bloodied in the brutal price competition brought on by Wal-Mart's aggressive pricing during the holiday season of 2003 (see "Wal-Mart Applying Toy Category Kill Shot").



    The reorganization plan approved by the judge puts the KB Toys chain under the control of the New York City investment firm Prentice Capital Management and puts two former Toys "R" Us presidents, Gregory Staley and Roger Goddu, on the KB Toys management team."

    Ever wondered what a remote controlled, dancing, transforming, battling robot produced for the home market created with todays technology would look like?

    wonder no more...

    Transbot

    the video shows off the dancing ability and the transforming/fighting ability. It is a similar idea to the Robosapien, except far more advanced.

    Newsarama have been provided with a 5 page preview of the forthcoming Trasformers: Infiltration #0 fron IDW Publishing with the following blurb:

    Written by Simon Furman, art by EJ Su, covers by EJ Su, Milx, James Raiz, Ed McGuinness.

    The new era for Transformers begins now! After too-long an absence, the Robots in Disguise are back in comics form! This is the beginning of an all-new storyline and continuity that relaunches the Transformers from the ground up. If you've always been curious about these giant, transforming robots, this is the perfect jumping-on point! In this specially priced introductory issue, legendary Transformers writer Simon Furman is joined by artist EJ Su in presenting "Transformers: Prelude to Infiltration," the opening salvo in an upcoming six-part saga that returns the Transformers to glory.

    In this 16-page tale, runaway Verity Carlo absconds with a mini-computer that just might hold bigger secrets than she's prepared to handle. And when she's made aware of a larger conspiracy that involves gigantic alien robots, well, the skeptic in her refuses to believe what she's been told. Until she has no choice but to believe if she wants to survive at allÅ  also contained in this 0 issue are interviews with the Transformers comics creators and a hint of what's to come in our new, ongoing Transformers series in January '06. Plus, more variant covers than you can shake a Decepticon at. Covers will be shipped in a 1-to-1 ratio.

    24 pages, 99 cents.
