    That was my original thought as well, but it depends on your definition of "shortly". By FT standards I would say it was. It showed up in color out of nowhere at TFCon in July 2016. Was released by the end of 2016.

    Fans Toys has a tendency to release 2 - 3 figures in quick succession rather than spread them out. It looks like maybe Rouge, Berserk, and Mindwipe might be the next group.

    Screw it, I used the money I was going to preorder the KO MPM Prime with, to just order a Lupus from Baba. Sure, I won't see him until after CNY, but now that Mindwipe has been shown in proto form, I can see the cheap Lupuses (Lupusii?) selling pretty quickly now.

    There will be a mass Lupus sell off when MT releases theirs so don't overpay now.

    Honestly, I don't trust MT to finish off the Headmasters, or at least the Decepticon ones.


    Even if they DO make them, it won't be for a few years yet, and by then I'll be pushing 50 and hope to not still be collecting much by that point. :lol

    I sold off my MISB Lupus since I decided to not collect Seasons 3 & 4, so there are some out there.

    Haha I feel you there. With Takara's move from G1 to the god awful bayverse and the inconsistencies of 3p releases, I've slowly come to the realization I may never complete my S3+ collection.

    Have they even shown a prototype for a Lupus?

    And part of me kinda wants to do the Decepticon headmasters Fanstoys and the Autobots MT just to separate them a bit more.

    Not that I am aware of. They seem to be more focused on "double dipping" those first two molds. IMO Lupus has enough issues that I'm welcome to an alternative. Mindwipe looks good in the blurry shots tho.

    Why are these pics always so blurry? Are the people taking them afraid to get their phones swiped and themselves Mindwiped for revealing the images? o_O

    Yup! Fast for FT, MT, MMC and etc... lol. Off the top of my head, it seems like DX9 is the fastest. Are you talking about the Mindwipe in the background with Hoodlum in 2016? This is the first time for me seeing it as a physical figure. Meh, it doesn't matter who's wrong or right, it's just nice to see this getting closer to release.

    I read somewhere that MT and FT reached an agreement that FT will release the Decepticon head masters, while MT will do the Autobot side head masters, it could be an rumor, but things stay this track for now.
