What's wrong w/ it? :?
Lockets, nail polish... we saw all of that already in 90s. They could come up with something more creative and innovative.
They are creative and innovative..The Lockets and Nail Polish sets are more beautiful and elegant looking. That appeal to older fans. I can't wait to get mine :) I can also see non SM fans who love Make up would get these even just for the packaging

P.S. Never ever heard of another anime being re-made besides Cutey Honey/DBZ. What are other ones that have been off for years and that have gotten a reboot recently? Just so I can see the animation/design differences from their original counterpart, to get an idea of upgrades.
Well, though it's a global franchise that was birthed in America, Transformers has had several anime (and Western cartoons, all of which have been dubbed into Japanese) that have been rebooted with a new look pretty much every year or so. 2001-2005 was nothing but Japanese-made cartoons and all four of them were different in appearance.

I :love: the nail polish! once I get $93 I'll buy the broach and the nail polish!
I'm not too sure about the Nail Polish, I hear it can't be shipped to the U.S. because of it's alcohol content. :(

My deputy hasn't said anything about this. Also, what about the other henshin wands that had nail polish as well? Obviously they were able to ship them if people in the US have them.

You can ship nail polish internationally, but it has to be marked as a hazardous item. USPS won't ship it via anything but ground service, but other carriers have different rules.

This gives me reason to believe the transformation items will stay the same, what would be the point of changing them then? Or making these if they r just going to be outdated and be made as "old" merchandise.
That's actually what I'm thinking too. I mean if they're not gonna be used in the reboot, they probably won't sell too well when it comes out. I mean people will prefer to buy things that're up to date. I'm hoping we're right as all the stuff that's been brought out so far is R merch which means we'll get 2 seasons at least :D

I still think the appearances of those current products are unrelated to the new anime, which various designs could very well be still WIP. :confused:

I still don't know why would they want to change such iconic things and items. :? It's 10x better than when Precure uses their phones. These are unique transformation items, well not as unique now as it maybe was back then because compacts as henshin items are so commonly used now. However, that's what makes SM so true to its' series. :)
 
I agree. The transformation rods/pens are classic. I would have totally used one at school when the series first came out, and you know, I'd use it on my job right now. People still use pens today, so I can't see that particular item needing a more modern upgrade. The wrist communicators, though, definitely. If they did reanimate the entire thing, I could see the senshi now communicating to each other on smartphones.

Besides, these last two products are not marketed to children. They're being marketed to the fans who were children at the time of the original series, grew up with it, and would love to have a bit of that nostalgia back. I would have loved to have had a transformation item when I was much, much younger, but E-bay wasn't around in 1994 and my parents would likely have never bought this for me. So, for me, I'm getting a total kick out of all this awesome merchandise being released, and I'm super happy to have gotten both of them.

Good observation. ^_^

TOEI really must be lurking here and checking out the hentai section. :mischief:

Trami might even be a TOEI spy. P-:
