    As opposed to all those instances of Hasbro infringing on numerous car manufacturers' intellectual properties with their figures' "not-Mustang", "not-Civic" or "not-Lamborghini" alternate modes.

    Just saying. ;)

    Me too.
    That's all I want at this point- to see the dang figure to determine whether or not to start saving.

    Wow.
    I thought I was the only person to have that view.
    I find it refreshing to see eye-to-eye on a topic. Maybe today will be a good day after all.

    Cheers!

    The MPM figures are to celebrate the 10th anniversary of TF2007, so this will be Barricade's first design :]

    The links aren't working now.

    Haha, looks like this was just an "accident".


    At least we know Barricade is in the works.

    I initially read that as "whether or not to start starving".

    Okay, I apologize for butting in, but I just have to ask...

    Was this ever stated outright? From what I understand, the Masterpiece line is about Transformers, the brand as a whole, and not Transformers G1. Also...

    Very accurate figures don't exist for a ton of other characters as well. And yes, just because there may be more accurate toys made of those characters, doesn't mean they're super-accurate by any stretch of the imagination.

    How is this not going against your own argument? We now have modern iterations of G1 characters elsewhere as well.

    It was never stated anywhere. The only reason MP is primarily G1 is because they're the ones primarily in need of updates, and have the broadest appeal due to the amount of revisits and reversions.

    So, now if we could get a masterpiece Blackout, that'd be great.

    Hm, my money is on a rework of his Human Alliance version. Was his best mold from the movie lines and they already did HA Soundwave so it makes the most sense.

    Both mpm Optimus and Bumblebee are completely new molds. It makes no sense for Barricade to just be a rework of an old mold.

    If I remember correctly, only ApeFace and Optimus Primal have gorilla arms! :D 

    What do you mean by gorilla arms?! I hear that term occasionally in this forum!

    Well the money has to come from somewhere..., maybe in this case, he has to make sacrifices like not buying more food :D :D :D

    Nope, it's going to be a completely new mold. Some of the transformation scheme might be similar, but that's because they're the same character. However, rose-tinted glasses off, the HA wasn't that good, in all honesty. Inaccurate back, no-hand syndrome, car interior kibble, it was far from being a definitive version.

    I've also seen it called curling iron arms. Its a design choice where when you face the hands the right direction, the elbows face inwards. When you position the elbows correctly, the palms face forward. Lots of movie Bumblebee figures have the problem. Capture+_2017-05-18-14-49-11.png
