    My first post here. Woo hoo! I love the Masterpiece line and was wondering if you guys had any inside scoop as to whether or not the line was going to continue and, if so, what is to come out next? Also, do you know if there is going to be a US release of Thundercracker? I hate to pay over $100 now if I can wait and get him for $30 later.

    US Thundercracker hasn't been announced yet but I'm sure that question will be asked next month at BotCon if Hasbro doesn't announce it 1st. I think it's in the realm of possibility. As for rumored pieces, the next one up is rumored to be Rodimus. The 1st rumors were from a few years back but I wouldn't be surprised if TakaraTomy was working on one for this year or next. Rodimus is popular in Japan.

    We'll get Thundercracker in the US eventually. I'm more worried that Hasbro won't ever release Sunstorm and Acid Storm versions of the mold.

    right now, as for us/north america, its gonna be grimlock.

    for japan, its sleep convoy and then rumors of rodimus prime.

    i think tc will get a us release, not just this year yet.

    Rodimus eh. Meh. Never been a big fan of his. I really wish they'd make armor for the Ultra Magnus. He looks naked without it.

    Thus far I have Optimus with trailer, Starscream (US and Japanese), Skywarp, Megatron, and Grimlock. I've recently picked up boxed Binaltechs of Mirage who was always my favorite Autobot car, Smokescreen, Wheeljack, Sideswipe, and Bluestreak. I want to pick up more. I want Sunstreaker, Jazz, Hound, and Prowl for sure. I'll have to see after that. I haven't collected anything in a long time. I miss "the chase" and I've always loved Transformers. I won't spend nearly as much as I used to though. I'm married now and have a house so I guess I have to pretend to be responsible and stuff...kinda. lol

    I was dissapointed to see that the Alternity figures are only 1/32 scale instead of 1/24 scale. I may still pick up Bumblebee and Cliffjumper though since they would be smaller than my others just like in G1.

    Alternity BB and CJ are pretty cool...the other Alternity releases haven't looked that great IMO.

    I've got the Hasbro releases of the seekers thus far.

    Megatron and Optimus Prime aren't characters that I like that much, so I've not shelled out.

    I could go for a Hot Rod.

    We haven't heard any news so the line is dead, just like Encore. LOL J/K

    I seriously hope we get Thundercracker here in the USA next year, but this year it's Grimlock...I hope Japan gives us either 'Bee or Hot Rod. We need some new Autobots.

    I'd really dig deep in the wallet for a good MP Galvatron. Not that it's likely in my lifetime.

    I'd love to see a US Thundercracker. I'd also like to see Rodimus, if he looks good, I would add him to the collection. I'm really holding out for MP Skyfire...

    there are still 4 or 5 MP Skywarps left at my Walmart that they refuse to drop the price on. i won't pay 60 for him.

    i am thinking that at my WM, ThunderCracker will find himself talking to Skywarp about his lengthy shelf warming career, lol.

    i want the MP Grimmy, but he isn't at the top of my shopping list, so if i can't find something else on my list, i'll get him.
