Figure-Oh magazine issue 162 posed the following seven questions to ten members of the TakaraTomy Transformers design staff.

  1. What was your first encounter of "Transformers", or any childhood memory of robot series?
  2. Did you work on other series beside Transformers in the past, if so, what are they?
  3. What is the most important for you when you work on Transformers toy designs or development?
  4. Favorite "Dark of The Moon" item you developed?
  5. Favorite items you developed in the past series?
  6. What kind of Transformers do you hope to develop in the future?
  7. Message for fans, please

Thanks to SydneyY of our fellow Transformers fan site TFW2005 we now have the translation of this Q&A. Images of the translated pages have been mirrored from TFW2005 below.

i agree with hisashi yuki.. it would be INCREDIBLY AWESOME if they took another stab at lio convoy.

i also agree with hironori kobayashi it would be nice to see updated versions of arcee, springer, and magnus.. preferably as masterpiece figures.

my one complaint is that.. it seems like no one has the ambition to update a true combiner.

I really hope they do springer, arcee and magnus like they said he'd wish to design. One saying beast transformers too, and I'd be down for a lio convoy redo. I know designers desires doesn't dictate actual production though. I hope they're interest helps though.

I like the idea of updating the Pretender concept. The recent offerings like Skullgrin and Bludgeon have disappointed me no end. IDW ruined Pretenders, especially Thunderwing and his chaarcter.

I'd love proper, updated versions of Cloudburst, Landmine, Skullgrin and Catilla. At the moment I'd settle for a repaint of Classics Jetfire as Cloudburst's inner robot and Battle Ravage as Catilla.

Surprised a third party hasn't come up with Pretender armour for Starscream. Could be repaint potential for the other Seekers.
