    • Continuity of Perfection Series
    • About cartoon/realistic melding

    Drift is a strange example, since he's had an Earth Mode.
    But anyway, is the gist here is MP IDW characters, coming in 2+ years?
    (Apologies if this is addressed in the video.)

    If these are MP scale (vehicle modes) and design, I am so 100% in on earth mode versions of characters without earth modes!

    Not sure - it sounds like a mix of different things

    Chogoking did say "MP Drift"

    Maybe intrigued. I'd like a slightly more concrete example of both look and actuale asthetic. It'll be interesting.

    I commented before I watched, and now I’m excited.

    I hope at the very least we get a Deadlock and a Driftpool (SG) repaint

    I really don't mind as long as they don't delay the production and release of the OcMax MP cassettes from Seasons 2 & 3. I'd REALLY like to be done with the Season Two collection before they start shifting resources to other/new lines.

    Nissan is pretty sue-happy, I wonder if they'll actually have him be a GTR.

    I think he's been drawn as both. Still, Nissan likes to sue the shit out of people using their designs without permission.

    I would be okay with MMC taking the risk to make an r32 or 33 gtr transforming figure haha

    I'm definitely intrigued. I really like the Perfection Series. Only one I'm missing is Black Hellion (sold out before I could order unfortunatley, haven't seen an acceptable 2nd hand price for my budget)

    Very interesting. I would love to see more Earth mode Decepticons, so I do hope it's not going to focus primarily on cars/Autobots, I really want more modern military vehicles and such in a modern G1 MP style(you know, ones that don't turn into Bay-styled messes). So, really cool news.

    Off-topic: there was a lot of Hellion discussion in the video. Also I found what Chogoking had to say about 3P very interesting including the part where he said Hasbro took pics of their TB and Hoist at a convention. All in all a great video and I will have to listen to it again more in depth.

    Neato. I like Elseworld’s type things. I wonder if that means we’ll see other IDW originals like Strafe, Stardrive, Velocity, Nautica, Anode, Lug, Nickel, Swift, Aileron, and maybe even Rung, Froid and Sunder?

    But, I gotta agree with Ry’ that MMC could eventually get in trouble if they make these alt modes too realistic. I would be fine with any of the gals above as a premium figure, even if they don’t look exactly some specific brand’s car or other vehicle.

    On the other hand, an MP Slipstream would be amazing, and I don’t think Lockheed Martin gives a slag about unlicensed Transformers borrowing their designs.

    Even better, the functionist council as a bunch of minicons on a key ring would be pretty funny. And, for funsies, why not have them be “battlemasters” and turn into a dozen key blades! ^.^

    Finally, Quentin Meillassoux’s After Finitude is not available as a free PDF, but the collection Aesthetics After Finitude is, and I’ve been meaning to get around to reading that. It’s like a sign... :p

    I'm very interested in this. Here's hoping for a Slipstream sooner than later too!

    Yeah, that's weird to say that about Drift. We have plenty of IDW designs of guys with real car alt modes.
    I am not opposed to seeing more though. This would definitely get my attention.
    We also have plenty of G1 characters who haven't been done in MP who have real car alt modes (but that's another list).

    IDW designs:
    Sideswipe - Lamborghini Murcielago
    Sunstreaker - Lamborghini Diablo, headmaster (with Red, Black, and White repaints)
    Hot Rod - Dodge Viper
    Hot Rod - Pagani Zonda (later)
    Runabout - Chevy Camaro 4th gen
    Runamuck - Chevy Camaro 4th gen
    Jazz - Porsche 911 (Generation Toy is good enough)
    Nightbeat - Porsche 911
    Cliffjumper - Mini Cooper
    Prowl - Nissan 350Z
    Streetwise - Nissan GT-R
    Drift - Nissan Silvia S15

    Really? Here's Generation Toy Streetwise, a Nissan 370Z
    Also, can you find a pic of him being a GTR? I can find one of Streetwise being a GTR, but not Drift.
    IMG_20180812_012535.jpg


    Seriously? Here's Badcube, TFC, Transformission, Maketoys, etc etc realistic cars (ignore the Takara MP ones). Let's not forget MMC already did a realistic Trailbreaker pickup and Ligier Indy Car.

    I guess Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Caparo, Ligier, Toyota, and Nissan are much more lenient than Nissan..
    (Also all of those cars from the IDW Transformers books are not licensed cars, they're "different" enough to not get in trouble with the manufacturers. Just like... 3P gasp)

    Even Fansproject did a Ferrari, a Caparo, and two Lamborghinis


    C'mon guys. What about Fanstoys, XTB, and DX9's Stunticons? Those don't look like Lamborghinis, Ferraris, or Porsches?

    You’re absolutely correct, and I was actually thinking of MMC’s Sphinx as I was writing that.

    Without having actually listened to the above 2 Hour conversation, my best guess it that it’s possible that Drift will get a vintage car mode, not that I’ve got any suggestions off the top of my head as to what that could be.

    Though, it would be interesting to have an MP Slipstream who transforms into a MIG-21, for instance.
