The Smooth One has heard rumblings that Takara (who lost a whopping 30 MILLION USD last year) may be releasing some of the more "no brainer" figures fans have been demanding for years. The gestalts.

If this is true, it's a smart move for Takara. The demand for the gestalts (that's "combiners" for the two kids in Atlanta that didn't know) is always high. Why? Because they were the best of the G1 figures? Nope. Because they were miracles of mid-eighties toy design? Hell no. Because people like a bunch of small crappy robots combining into one bigger less-crappy robot? YES! Takara's already taken the first step towards actually selling a couple of figures (they lost 30 Million USD (Over one hundred gajillion yen) this year). They bit the bullet and brought out the Predaking mold already. The molds for the Seacons are readily available, and (as anyone who's been in a Wal-Mart since 2001 knows) Bruticus has been BEGGING to get the reissue treatment. If Takara releases them in the G1 colors, slaps 'em in a gift box, and applies some die-cast metal where necessary, fans would be more than happy to shell out the cash for 'em. Once they've got the fans hoppin' with the gestalt bug they reissue Devastator, Superion, Menasor, and Abominus to a public dying to fill the back row of their top shelf! Once the reissues are out, they've got enough e-hobby and Lucky Draw exclusives to keep ATB Megatron and Elvin Pena as broke as Glen Hallit! Come on, Takara, make this one of those rumors I DON'T get blasted for on ATT! Give us the gestalts!
