With the imminent approach of the 50th Legends figure, and the reveal of MP-39 Sunstreaker and a Masterpiece Dinobot definitely in the works, Takara Tomy has decided to do a little survey to get some information from the fans. The survey, which can be found here, asks some questions dealing with new figures, reissues, and toy buying habits. Said questions include:

-How often do you buy?
-How much do you spend on figures or are willing to spend?
-What figures do you have?
-How do you display said figures?
-What figures do you want Reissued?
-What do you like about the current Takara lines?

The survey is listed in Japanese, and in order to participate you need a Takara Tomy Mall account. Check it out, and let us know what you said in your survey or what you would say if you did take the survey!

What figures would I like reissued? Car Robots Gigatron (preferably with the Hasbro retooling that allowed him to assume all 10 modes, but still with the Takara-original missiles). Mine is absolutely knackered and the prices for a complete one are...not pretty.

I'd love to see Generations Metroplex reissued. Especially with Trypticon coming out. I'm so upset with myself that I never managed to pick one up. Money was crazy tight those days and I never expected that aftermarket price increase.

Totally agree. Overlord and Road Caesar would be my additions to Liokaiser. I know they have the Road Caesar molds handy, as these were used in the early 00s

Reissue every gold plastic syndrome figure, without the effin' sparkles!

And since this is Takara, start with all the Euro-exclusives that would never meet US safety laws, especially Skyquake.

If there's a way to correct the plasticizer-melting problem, HFTD Bludgeon wouldn't be a bad idea either, sometime down the road.

1) Not as often as I used too the price increases are murder - I'm expecting to binge line crazy when the sales start though.

2) Not as much as Ginrai Costs thanks very much Takara - but if you want to spend more money on making Omega Supreme or Scorponok better i'm not going to scream if he costs another £20.00 more if the toy actually comes with decent accessories and isn't missing most of them like keeps happening with the Titans.


3) You really don't want to know - (trust me)

4) Messily

5) Legends (Headmaster) Blurr needs a reissue also a Weirdwolf repaint as Fang Wolf, and Black Zarak, Blue Bakkus etc.. needs reissuing.
I'd not mind a Legends Ginrai in Fireguts colour either. Bw2 King Neptune reissue only with all the Seacon pieces and 6 characters would be nice too. Likewise BWII Gigastorm with all the accessories too.


6) The Packaging is nice enough - I like the Targetmasters.
Then need better campaigns though - they have been lacklustre for a while.


I'd like them to release a small Transformers line and stick with it rather than make the same characters over and over and then invent another similar line - it's annoying.

While fans still have until July 3 to vote for which Takara Legends figures they want rereleased most, Takara PR on Twitter shared who were the top 5 right now. With no order indicated, they showed a picture including Fortress Maximus, Megatron, Jetfire, Windblade and Ultra Magnus.

It sounds like Takara asked 'What figure do you guys want us to make?" And the top 5 votes so far are for characters that just got figures made.

There must be something else involved that I don't get because it sounds like Takara I'd getting trolled.

I understand Fort Max, though I have the TR version. I already have Legends Jetfire, and I got CW Magnus at a TF shop in the city. It might have been before the street date, actually...anyway, I have no interest in Megs, and I plan on getting TR Windblade and/or Adventure Windblade.

Whereas Hasbro re-releases figures in later waves, TakaraTomy makes all-new production runs should there be a demand for a certain item. In other words, they have a habit of reissuing figures that are off the shelves, not just G1.

The legends poll asked which five should be reissued. Aside from Jetfire, those figures are pretty "fun" to buy on the aftermarket; especially windblade.

Windblade is hard to get a decent price (runs around $55 usually) on the aftermarket, but the others aren't terribly overpriced. Megatron still runs around $60-$70 which is about right for a Japanese Leader class at retail. Jetfire and Ultra Magnus goes for $45-$55 which is reasonable even for a Hasbro release. And Fortress Maximus can be had easily for around $170 now on Mandarake.

So yeah, Windblade is the one in the top 5 that I could see needing a re-release the most. I'm sure if there wasn't that 3 year limit we'd be seeing Metroplex on the top of the list, especially with Trypticon coming. That guy is running $300+ now.

Wow. Every single one of you guys completely mistook what this survey was for. It was specifically for the Legends line. Nothing else. That's why the top five contenders are all Legends toys. Why, the survey's banner even had the Legends logo in it, with a slew of Legends toys all grouped together, right there. How do you miss that?

If anything, y'all should've been pulling for a reissue of the highly coveted Legends Blurr, you fools! :-P

I really want Blurr and Hardhead to reissued. (Takara Blurr has better colors and the Hasbro Blurr's colors fit the Nightbeat headmaster perfectly, Hardhead because he has the mouth face which is more iconic to his character)

Yeah, that one surprised me too. Plus aside from the lack of chrome, the difference between that and the hasbro version (which was also easy to find for cheap for a while) wasnt that big, so there is a lot of similar looking jetfire available to purchase. I think we could still find it online for a price similar to what it initially cost.
I am surprised Arcee didnt show up, especially since orders had to be cut for that one.

And Sabr is right on the nose with Blurr.

Oh man I wish but its been years now since Fort Max. And with takara rereleasing G1 Trypticon under the Hasbro Platinum line, I think it is a good sign the Encore line is over.

Lucky Logician wrote:It sounds like Takara asked 'What figure do you guys want us to make?" And the top 5 votes so far are for characters that just got figures made.

Na, Takara asked "which legends toys do you want us to reissue", so the answers make sense.

I didn't. :P I simply think it makes sense to at least go as far back as Generations since those figures still blend well with Legends (because most of the early Legends figures were from Hasbro's Generations line pre-Combiner Wars). Just stick them in Legends packaging and maybe change the colors a little like they did with Springer's Legends release.

william-james88 wrote:the hasbro version (which was also easy to find for cheap for a while)

In Canada, perhaps, but the only Jetfire I've ever seen in person was the one I bought off HTS.

I am surprised Arcee didnt show up, especially since orders had to be cut for that one.

They made up for that with a second run alongside Chromia later. (I bought two) She's readily available on the aftermarket now, for around half of what Windblade goes for since she didn't get a second run like the other two girls.

The thing is, the question that asks which figure(s) should be reissued (Question 3) specifically lists all of the Transformers: Legends figures from LG01 Convoy to LG42 Godbomber as the only selectable options. There's no alternative to those specific 42 choices. :|

Riiiiight, that's what going back means. Go back further than the 42 choices and get some older figures into Legends that make sense. Godbomber's comic really opened the door for that sort of thing by letting some Unite Warriors characters in.

The results of this TakaraTomy Mall Transformers: Legends reissue survey are in!

http://takaratomymall.jp/shop/e/eTflgVote/?mm170707TF

The order period for these figures runs from July 7 at Noon to July 25 at 1pm, Japan time of course.

Scheduled for release in Mid-December are:
  • LG-25 Blurr
  • LG-26 Scourge
  • LG-29 Wheelie & Goshooter
  • LG-31 Fortress Maximus
  • LG-32 Chromedome
Scheduled for release in late February of next year, 2018, are:
  • LG-07 Jetfire
  • LG-10 Arcee
  • LG-12 Windblade
  • LG-13 Megatron
  • LG-14 Ultra Magnus
Each figure will be limited to a purchase quantity of no more than three per customer.

To enable these to reach as many customers as possible, and to prevent scalping, multiple orders from the same name and address will be invalidated.

Quantities are limited, so some may sell out before the release date.

If there is any stock leftover after the sale, it is currently undecided how the remaining stock will be sold.

These cannot be ordered together with other items not part of this sale.

The release dates may be subject to change if necessary.

If not enough of a figure's production run is preordered, that figure's production may be canceled.

Once your preorders are set, they cannot be canceled.






Of course, all these rules are for Japanese customers ordering directly from TakaraTomy Mall. Don't expect these to turn up at places like BBTS and such, due to just how limited these rereleases are.

The results for the poll are in and we now know all the Legends figures that will be rereleased by Takaratomymall. The list and many details have been thoroughly described by fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade and can all seen below. What is important to understand here is that these rereleases can only be obtained from Takaratomymall, so not BBTS, TF Source or any other importer. Also, takaratomymall only ships to Japan adresses. So if anyone outside Japan is interested in these figures, which includes the very sought after figures like Legends Blurr and Arcee, you have to open an account at takaratomymall.jp (which is all in Japanese) and have the toys shipped to a Japan mailing service that will then ship it to you, meaning you pay the shipping twice. If you want to know more, ask the community in the forums, we will help you as much as we can. And for all Japanese fans, congrats on getting this great second chance at these figures!

With the Blurr release, Doublecross sales should go up.

Also, the TT Megatron ended up being cheaper than the Hasbro one on many sites. Don't know what that means now, but it relates.

Depends on which sites they were. If they were American/European ones that had imported them then it makes sense -- he wasn't awfully different from the local Hasbro release which also had Autobot stickers, so there wasn't much appeal as there would be in something significantly better like Blurr or something with significant difference to match another media like Chromedome.

Could be wrong tho. What differences are there between Hasbro and Takara Megs? I'm assuming Takara has a brighter silver or something.

Yay another chance for Blurr one of the few who I agree that Takara does better paint on!

For those who have him how is he in hand compared to stock images or online pictures?

"and have the toys shipped to a Japan mailing service that will then ship it to you" has anyone been able to sign up to the ttmall website? is there a way to translate it so I can understand the fields?

what japan mailing services can I sign up to to act as the third party to ship to me?

having problems with that second field:
Please enter all Kana (SAY) in full-width Kana.
Please enter all Kana (May) in full-width Kana.

what does that mean?

doesn't seem to like my canadian postal code either, should I have already signed up for that japanese mailing service and be putting their address?
