    Wasn't Bumblebee and Optimus poorly received?

    Bumblebee has been a fragging hit. Prime is more mixed to negative, but still sold exceptionally well outside of Japan.

    I'm not trying to set myself up for disappointment, but I think at NYTF we will see wave 1 and 2 of movie edition and MPM Barricade. There is no doubt about it. Hasbro has to cater to ALL the fans.

    And more importantly, the investors!!!

    Though I wouldn't be surprised if, just like prime and bee, we saw barricade at one of the Asian cons in the coming months.

    Not only that, but Bee is getting a reissue in February. The MPM figures are selling out fast and fans want more. The demand is definitely there.

    Since prime and bee were just teasers, How many MPMs do you guys think we'll get next year?

    I am hoping MPM-05 is just exceptional and without flaw, then we can get Megatron, then Ironhide, Ratchet, Blackout, Jazz, and so on.

    2019 could kick off with a ROTF 10th anniversary MPM-03R that has the 2nd film parts.

    2021, you get it.

    Also, mpm prime (even though most are negative) has the greatest number of reviews for TFs around amazon (136), not any other action figure from transformers had that big.


    They're definitely selling fast and very well.

    But prime needs to be fixed, not matter the cost, to put some perspective, his problems aren't as bad as trypticon's or rodimus'.

    That's good too know. I'll still wait for up to date versions of the characters e.g. DotM Optimus.

    But don't forget about 3rd party, they seem to be eyeing characters from DOTM forward since they know Taraka is gonna take their time with the 07 crew. AA Dino, UT Lockdown and even WJ M02 Hound all seem like decent figures that will fit quite well in a Bayverse Masterpiece collection. I even saw a really nice 3d print of a DOTM Megatron that looked awesome coming from a 3rd party.

    The nice thing about 3rd parties jumping in on the moviefigures is that the designs are so radical it's even more difficult to distinguish between official and 3rd party compared to G1 Masterpiece. I'm excited.

    "Now how about I put my foot up your ass?"

    "What size shoe do you wear"?

    I love that exchange.

    But as funny as many of the posts here have been, can we not all agree that it's been worth it?

    ...So are we just...not gonna talk about the Batman symbol?

    Hello Barricade, are you here to punish and enslave my wallet?

    Oh you already did, did you?....... damn it!

    Just a blurry picture of his door and I’m going giddy! What a day!

    I really hope they don't waste the efforts on obscure characters, I don't want someone like jazz or brawl to get cancelled out for the twins and sideways.

    I have some crazy yet not so far from the reality theory.

    What if they first do two bots with the same faction?, then they make their "stated" enemies:

    1.-Bee
    2.-Prime
    3.-Barricade
    4.-Megatron???

    Then they make two autobots again:
    5.-Ratchet???
    6.-Ironhide???

    Enemies:
    7.-Starscream
    8.-Blackout

    Then..
    9.-Jazz???
    10.-brawl (as there aren't other autobots, plus jazz fought with brawl at some point).

    It leaves maybe bonecrusher for other next releases as there aren't other autobots....UNLESS THEY START TO MAKE ROTF CHARACTERS, as sideswipe.
