Are We Hitting A Targetmaster Trend In Reissues?

It would be worth it to shell out for the original Wheeljack, Mirage, Jazz, Sideswipe etc. because their labels will be different if they're reissued because of the copyrights - Jazz can't have Porsche (instead it's Agent Meister)

Maybe, but I wouldnt count on it. Theres probably not much difference between suing a Japanese company and suing an American one. Just language. I cant see why Takara WOULDNT be open to a lawsuit if Hasbro is since Porsche is a company OUTSIDE both countries. It would lie within INTERNATIONAL issues, rather than local issues, such as a Megatron being sold as a gun.

 

Dont quote me since Im no lawyer, but thats how it seems to me. But then legal issues can be far from sensical.

 

But all in the same, dont get your hopes up just yet.

Yes, Jazz is Meister in Japan - what I meant was the decals on Jazz...In the original releases, Jazz had Porsche, Wheeljack had the Lancia decals and on the new reissues, the decals are different because Porsche no longer is involved with Hasbro/Takara so they can't use Porsche in their decals....
