    Doubt there will be anything. Otherwise, the magazine would say something like find out more in the next issue.

    Hahah, I’m cautiously optimistic about him being released, but I definitely appreciate the enthusiasm and knowledge being shared in this thread.

    I’ve tried to hedge my bets in a few of my posts, but can’t deny how excited I am about this sneak peak.

    It would be great to see a Blaster, though I find him to be my best KFC (toon red), and 3P in general. That’s saying a lot considering KFC is often questionable QC. I definitely feel like we’ll see the 4x4 autobots next, and likely Jazz if they license Porsche. And I really wish they’d crank out some new minibots (ahem...Bumblebee v3 anyone?). I’ve already gone with toon Sideswipe and Red Alert and will get Prowl. I’m ok w them “tooning up” old bots in favor of releasing new molds of new figures, but an OP would be my one to get redone. Yes, a sideswipe done like Sunstreaker would be amazing, but there are so many bots not done. Official insects would have to be a cash cow as well.

    I'm more than okay with + releases of everyone between 12 and 22, but they're definitely making the right decision in making a new Prime. I'd love a Bumblebee v3 because he's one of my favourite characters, but MP-21 still gets a hell of a lot right.

    I don't think we'll get any arm communicators with pictures in them. Pretty sure that wasn't actually in the show, just a cool idea they used for MP-1. Prime did have a little arm communicator in one episode, though:

    Or else something like this:

    Well everyone knows Bumblebee v1 came with MP-1:

    Sure he was a little small and only one two-dimensional, which is why we got our v2 MP-21.

    I quite like Bumblebee having a legitimate car mode, and his 'Bot mode manages to be perfection in spite of the alt. mode being different from the show. A rerelease of MP-21 in bright, eye-searing yellow would do me fine, although I can understand why some want his squashy cartoon car mode.

    I’m pretty sure he had the arm communicator in autoberserk.

    Though it has been a bit since I revisited the g1 toon...

    He had this in Auto Berserk:

    Which told him when his energy levels are low. Skimming through the episode now I can't find a communicator.

    Just goes to show if his arm arrows should be any colour other than red it should be blue, not yellow!

    Where the heck did thos triangles even come from? They aren’t molded on the original figure, and aren’t printed on the stickers.

    Hasui vaguely thinks like Steve Jobs, he innovates and updates. He was a great designer, just like the current one. Hasui and the current designer have done great things on different roads.

    Lol dude what? Kobayashi put the yellow forearms arrows first with MP-1 :lol 

    Just because people gave Kobayashi shit for so long doesn't mean anyone should do the same to Hasui. Don't sink to that level. Both fantastic designers. If Hasui returns to the line, he'll stick to the current aesthetic and kick ass, same as Kobayashi.


    Not sure, probably from the comics? Wonder which is the first Prime figure to have them...

    The triangles themselves are definitely from the Marvel character model art that was used for the comic and the cartoon, not sure when they were first colored yellow. I think the first toy that had the triangle on the arms was the cab bot Powermaster Optimus Prime.

    I think it’s MP-1 we can blame for the triangles being yellow. Likewise the lights on the top of the cab.

    Holy crabs, i've never noticed that his arrows in the arms were just marked instead of having colour.


    Seeing the cartoon, i can see them being translucent for a blue LED in the new MP.
