    Hey gang,

    I was wondering if there are any rumors for the next installment of the masterpiece series.

    I heard something about a Devastator MP, but that couldve been a hoax.

    Is there a time span after a previous release, or a certain date Mp-information is released?

    Anything?

    Thnx

    None. Takara designers have hinted that since it is the year 2010 next year that the next new mold might fit into that year (which would mean it would be a season 3 character/movie character as season 3 of G1 took place in the year 2010 in Japan).

    Takara is releasing MP-8X King Grimlock and MP-1B Convoy Black late this year / early next year.

    Because i put it there. I wanted to know if there are rumors.

    I'm not from the US, and i already have the Takara first release version on Grimlock which is 6 to 8 months old? Kind off the time when new information on a followup could arrive.

    Thnx Randy. That clears a lot up. Shame, was hoping for a new mold.

    I want Rodimus & Galvatron. The lack of G1 Galvatron merch is shocking. No Revoltech, no Mega SCF, no Titanium (all of which Roddy got). And his "anime colours" G1 reissue could have had a much better choice of purple.

    My completely unfounded speculation is that it is going to be Hot Rod.

    I'd prefer a 12" Rodimus. Alternators Rodimus already works great as a MP Hot Rod. We need a bigger matrix-powered version to display beside him.

    that would be out of control. there's never been any transformable figure of galvatron that even remotely resembles his g1 representation.

    I highly doubt it! We have seen the past trend of repaints after repaints of the existing molds. Despite the year 2010, TT needs to recoupe and ensure new molds are optimal for other characters such as:

    1. Prowl, Blue streak, Smokescreen
    2. Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, Red Alert, Puch/Counter Punch
    3. Ironhide, Ratchet

    A Masterpiece Ejector would be nice.

    With actual toaster function.

    I, too would love to see these two as Masterpiece figures. I have given some thought to the creation of an accurate Galvatron in both alt and robot modes over the past few days (ever since finding him in the loft along with Hun-Grr and three Dinobots) and I think that I have a torso transformation figured out, but its the legs that will be a problem. Going to have to put it on paper and see...

    However, I am also of the opinion that a more reusable mould than Galvatron or Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime is a more likely option. Perhapse the Conehead Seekers. Aspects of the existing Seeker mould could be used in their creation and you end up with three toys to sell from one mould that makes use of elements of a previous one.

    Sign me up for Masterpiece Soundwave, Shockwave, Devastator, or a proper Ultra Magnus.

    in turn i doubt this. binaltech easily fills in this area...masterpiece would just have them scaled up and be over-sized cars...and of course, Masterpiece has been reserved for only iconic G1 characters (ultra magnus and seeker repaints aside). I expect the current trend of leaders (Prime, Megatron) and would-be leaders (Grimlock, Starscream) to continue. For example, if they made Galvatron there's nothing stopping them from making a g1 toy color scheme, and then an anime accurate one to satisfy their repaint lust. or standard color rodimus prime and "hate plague red" rodimus prime, etc. etc.

    how about one that's not a freaking plane or truck? enough already with the repaints geez! i wouldn't be surprised if the next one was an mp sunstorm. i'm cool with anything but lets get some autobot cars in the mix. will we ever get them? soundwave would be sick too along with a couple cassettes in the mix or the other dinobots.
