Toys R Us rejects bid from billionaire toy CEO Isaac Larian

TRU rejects Larian Bid - For those of us hoping that Toys R Us still had a shot at salvation, those hopes might have been squelched yesterday evening. Various mainstream news agencies reported yesterday that Toys R Us rejected billionaire Isaac Larian's bid to "save" hundreds of Toys R Us stores in the United States and Canada. Larian is the CEO of the toy company MGA Entertainment, home of the popular and highly collectible L.O.L. Surprise Dolls as well as Bratz (competitor to Barbie) and Little Tikes. As of this writing, it is unknown why Toys R Us rejected his bid, perhaps because it was not enough or maybe because it's just time to move on. Read more ...

Twincast / Podcast Episode #198 "A Night in the Studio"

A Night in the Studio - In this episode of the Twincast/Podcast, "A Night In The Studio", focus is on the recent high volume of toys celebrating the live action Transformers film franchise. Discussions of the recently released Studio Series Leader Class Blackout and Grimlock start the episode's talk, followed by thoughts on Voyager Class figures Optimus Prime, Starscream, and Thundercracker. Comparisons to the Takara Movie the Best line and its recent releases are also made during the discussion. A quick review of Movie Masterpiece Barricade follows, analyzing its similarities to the Human Alliance toy, plus investigation into its articulation, gimmicks, accessories, and more. After that, a first hand account of Dairycon 2018 comes next, discussing the history of the convention, its exclusives, dealer room, and similarities to other fan conventions. Speculation follows about potential themes for IDW's reboot of their Transformers comic book continuity. Closing the show are quick impressions of other toys and a chat about Authentics, Power of the Primes Nemesis Prime, LG-EX Greatshot and Grand Maximus.
Top 5 Transformers Toys whose Takara version was Better than Hasbro's

Top 5 Transformers Toys whose Takara version was Better than Hasbro's

Takara version was Better than Hasbro's - Last time, we checked the times when the Hasbro was better than the Takara version. Now, we will do the flip side, where we check the times Takara outdid Hasbro. Many fans often expect that to be the case, but with us now being in a new age of brand unification where the same toy gets released in both markets, it is a good time to look back at the times when it was really worth getting the Takara version over Hasbro's. I am well aware there are a lot of examples that can apply out there so I welcome people to let me know which toys they feel the Takara version is really worth seeking out. Also, they had to all be good toys rather than simply mediocre toys with a good paint job.

NEW!

Posted 1 day ago by william-james88 - 8,719 views

We have known for a good while that Takara's release of the Transformers Studio Series would be near identical to Hasbro's release. But how identical exactly? Well, the boxes turn out to be a bit different, much more different than simply adding a sticker, which has been the case for previous movie toy lines. Most english writing has been turned to Japanese, especially in the back, and the Hasbro logo has been removed to only have the Takara logo. Also, there is no presence of a window on - Read More
