    Pretty much as the title says - have the Movie MP versions of Ironhide and Sentinel Prime been confirmed, or are they still at the rumour / wishful thinking stage?

    I'm rather keen to know whether I should be putting aside the cash for the MP versions, or just grabbing the Hasbro versions as soon as I see them :)

    I'm holding out for the MP versions as well at this point. It seems to be the only way to get DotM figures with any paint apps!

    There aren't many DotM toys I've seen so far that I actually want (insists * I'm not gonna buy every damn toy this time... I'm not gonna buy every damn toy this time... I'm not gonna buy every damn toy this time... *), but those two leaders look excellent. I don't want to be waiting for a potential MP version that ultimately doesn't materialise, though, and end up missing the Hasbro versions.

    Totally.

    I've gone waaaaaaaaaaay overboard buying figures from the last 2 movies so this time out I'm going for the core cast in quality over quantity. If Takara make MP versions of Ironhide and Sentinel, it will be those versions I get and only those.

    ...honest!

    I will only buy Hasbro's version of Sentinel. But I'm gonna be a sucker for this new Leader IH mold, so I might buy both the Hasbro and Takara versions.

    ^ Thing is, there's likely gonna be 3 versions of each figure:

    1. General Hasbro release.

    2. General Takara release with better/more paint apps than the Hasbro version.

    3. Takara Masterpiece release with lots more paint apps/shiny paint/added awesomeness.

    Did they do that for Battle Ops BB and leader Starscream? I thought they only did the MP versions.

    Takara only released their own color schemes for those molds.

    I'm sure we've seen a solicitation for a Takara version of what would appear to be the same toy as Hasbro's SP, but nothing for Ironhide at all yet. I think.

    Yeah I'm thinking Sentinel Prime is not going to be a Movie Masterpiece as he's getting a normal release. Maybe he will get a 'Buster' version though which is pretty much the equivalent of a Movie Masterpiece in a different style box.

    Both Leader figures are confirmed as normal releases in the Japanese line. So Movie Masterpiece figures are not likely as they've always been the first release of the mold in Japan, not the second. Perhaps they may get the 'Buster' treatment and get an extensive paint job in a few months to a year like the RotF Optimus mold did.

    IIRC, Ironhide was tagged with "Ultimate" what that actually means, if anything, i don't think we know yet.

    It possibly means ultimate because of the sheer amount of weaponry on that toy - belly mounted gatling gun?!

    I guess i phrased that poorly: Perhaps i should've said: We don't know what if anything makes it ultimate over and above the Hasbro version.
