From what we've seen, there's no indication Takara are moulding from existing toys—the appearance of the sixth Seacon doesn't prove a recreation; it may be a repair job on a newly-refound mould. We know, for example, that the reissue Soundwave used retooled Soundblaster parts.

Bootleggers by necessity are geared up towards certain production methods—Takara may feel their reputation as a toy manufacturer at risk by employing these methods.

Why figures like hoist when there is so much better stuff like soundwave.
Soundwave won't pass US toy safety restrictions, therefore can't be sold at TRU and won't be handled by Hasbro.
