    So, remember five or six months ago when the teasers for MP-07 showed up all over the interwebs?

    Did this just fall off the face of the Earth, or what?

    I don't mind either way; I don't have $100 to blow, generally speaking, but was this a rumor, or a cancelled item?

    It will come out, it is Grimlock. I believe MP-07 or MP-08 is actually grimlock and the other is another seeker. If I remember correctly.

    Takara rep at BotCon stated the next 2 MPs are Thundercracker and Grimlock. No details or release dates have yet been announced.

    If it's helpful, here's what i wrote in this older MP thread :) 

    Yup, this a popular recurring-thread-theme

    Grimlock as the next new MP has been rumoured for some time now, and this has been fuelled again just the other weekend by "confirmation" from a Takara rep, saying they're having a meeting to discuss the possibility of inviting some friends round to talk about making it.

    As mentioned above as well, a Thundercracker repaint is also much rumoured, partly because the jet pic on the back of Skywarp's box shows a blue seeker jet alonside him & Screamer, and partly because since they released Starscream, you have to assume it's a no-brainer for Takara and/or Hasbro to get the most out of that mold by doing repaints for the various seeker characters.


    That thread is here, should you be interested!

    Hope it's not too long before we see some pics of whatever the next MP turns out to be...

    Yeah, but we see teasers, and even full prototypes for toys that never come out. And Grimlock, to my knowledge, was never actually "announced," per se. If I'm wrong, does anyone have that info in a release?

    If my memory is correct, a Takara representative at Botcon said that Thundercracker and Grimlock were in the works to be the next two MP figures, but there was really no date set for either one of them yet. Personally, as long as Hasbro releases MP Grimlock over here in the US, and not as a Walmart Exclusive, I'll be a happy camper.

    cool news, I hadn't kept my hope up for a Grimmy in case it didn't happen, but it looks like I can now get a bit excited!

    Apparently, the mods (or at least, a few) have decided this is too old a topic to still discuss? Sorry, it just occurred to me recently.

    And yes, I am frustrated by people who say "Confirmed! I kinda remember something about this being said by someone at Takara in 2006." That's not confirmation. Sources ARE important, because


    1) You might remember incorrectly,
    2) It might have been idle comments by the rep, not an announcement,
    3) If the info is outdated, the toy could be cancelled by now,
    4) The person you remember might not have been knowledgeable enough to speak informitavely. Lots of random people end up on panels.

    Look, if I could I would tell you who my source is. However, it's suppose to be a secret. All I know is, I was told that Grimlock and Thundercracker are coming. Period, end.

    Remember what I said, if it comes true, just pay attention more to what I say in future. If it becomes false, then don't ever pay attention to me again.
