    Yeah, I knew I'd end up regretting it if I didn't get another at this price! My plan is to have doubles of the guys I consider the core of the og Autobot & Decepticon casts so I can have them as deskbots: Optimus, Ironhide, Bumblebee, Wheeljack, Jazz, Megatron, Soundwave/Laserbeak/Rumble/Ravage, Shockwave, & Starscream. If TT reissues Ratchet I might have to throw him in the group, too (TT reissue would be cheaper than the HA one). I'll hold off on two Starscreams until a v3 comes along, though ;) 

    Are you down for two WJ+'s, brother?

    That makes a lot of sense. Honestly at times I'm tempted to cut down everybody to the core cast, except there aren't enough members yet! (totally agree about who you chose there)
    I run a pretty tight ship already though, and don't really have any doubles yet except Bumblebee. MP-29+ is coming in and I'll probably keep the original MP-29, I'll probably keep 17 too even with 17+, but I do like things streamlined. I'm even starting to consider selling 12+ and 40. I don't think I can pass on MP-36+ though, especially since I'll have to get OP-3+, but maybe just those two would suffice for a toy-accurate collection? This is starting to clash with my 'minimalist' lifestlye haha

    Only got two shelves and they're already starting to feel bloated. Clearly the right answer is to buy more shelves!!!

    TT reissues Ironhide/Ratchet, do they keep the flat grey face paint, or like Magnus the reissues have more of a pearlescent grey? I thought about this yest r day fooling around with, TT has been known to do running changes in reissues.

    Heads up. Not sure if it only applies to them

    I know the appeal of coins, but maybe the less stuff I have, the better.

    It sounds like an opportunity for a KO coin. :D

    It's just dawning on me that this is coming without the toy-style launchers from Exhaust. With +Prowl coming with his launchers to help augment the toy look for the normal MP-17 (for those that didn't bother chasing down the Amazon JP launchers or 3P variations), that was appreciated, and something I wish was followed up with on with 20+ helping further the toy look of MP-20. Doesn't mean I don't want the 'toon launcher or the extra little things (I have the immobilizer from Exhaust, but it's nice to get the hypno-chip thing this time), just that I wish they threw in the toy launchers & missiles too for another true all-in-one release, and so I could slap those on MP-20.

    MP-20+ doesn't come with the hypno-chip disruptor either...

    Couldn't care less about the coin. Just as long as we get the figure.

    I only care because if the price is going to be the same with or without the coin, I can sell the coin for a few dollars and recoup a tiny bit of the cost :)

    I want that Exhaust coin koed. I'm not paying over $25ish for a coin, let alone $1500ish.

    The figure release hasn't been in question, especially since it's easy money for TakaraTomy. Some of us DO collect the coins, which have already been discontinued once in lieu of the pewter figures. There's typically more options to buy a figure without a coin anyways.

    Sorry for the thread-cromancy when there’s no news, but just realized Takara missed a trick by not including a second, orange missile launcher with this guy.

    Would’ve been a nice victory homage.

    Edit: Also, I totally forgot I preordered this dude lol

    I have to admit, I am very tempted to pick this figure. I never double dip on molds (it's one of my rules) and MP20 is my absolute favorite MP. I have little interest in the toon deco, but am tempted to get it just for the mold

    That’s what I always wanted! And the only reason I’d want to pick up Mp-20+!

    Seems like that is an easy fix with orange paint.
