    ain't gonna happen, that is, at least for a long time, because of liscensing, that's also one of the main reasons we never got alternity over here, and possibly what will keep them two from coming over

    well if this is true this is the final nail in the coffin for 3rd party products for me with the way mps are being released theres no way i can do both so this year if this is true that will be mp13 and hasbro soundwave, mp10b , mp 15 , mp16 mp 17 , 18 , 19 and now mp acid storm thats 8 released this year 9 if you include the 2 releases of soundwave what a massive boost in the mp line and plus the possible release of mp10 in the uk..the way they are going by the end of 2014 we will have a big chunk of the g1 cast done and dusted in mp form

    think i will keep buying the mmc predaking bots but thats fansproject menasor completely out the window


    and i bet we get another big mp slated for the end of 2013 beginning of 2014

    Lol maybe they are right and we'll get MP Acid Storm over here too, instead of Thundercracker! Makes sense to me! Until anything shows up on a shelf though, I will remain in cynical dour Brit mode :lol

    Skywarp ain't gonna happen for a long time, because how poorly the last mp skywarp did (thus ending wal-mart carrying the masterpiece line, dooming me to never find masterpieces at retail anymore). he did badly because he wasn't that much of a popular character, and the final nail in the coffin was a ton of people waited for clearance for him

    thundercracker ain't doing so well either, seeing as he is shelfwarming lately in most TRU, so if acid storm does happen, which I am suprised hasbro is willing to chance after the poor performance of skywarp and possibly thundercracker, I really don't see it being that profitable for hasbro

    I wouldn't touch MP Acidstorm. You'd think they'd do a TRU Western release of MP11 Starscream with Coronation gear before Acidstorm... oh well. Saves me money. Thanks Hasbro!!!!

    I will take MP Acid Storm, as it I was the very first in a series of deluxe seeker. And plus, this is a typical decepticon by Hasbro.

    oh don't get me wrong, I want both, I'd buy both, but I'm just giving reasons why skywarp is less likely to happen and to why I am very skeptical about acid storm

    MP Acid Storm would be a "maybe" purchase...I'm holding out that the seekers will see full circle in the states again so that I can finally get my hands on MP-11 Starscream for a decent price.

    If that means that TakaraTomy is doing MP Skywarp I'm fine with that. :)

    Looks like I'm one of the few who actually want a MP Acid Storm :)  Even though it looks like most people are saying "blah, I'll pass", I'll bet it will still be hard to find initially.

    Oh I can't wait to see what monstrosity this "Acid Storm" turns out to be.

    Glad for those that want a cheaper way to get Soundwave. Hopefully he'll look more like Optimus and less like Thundercracker.
