    Imagine: MP Barricade, MP Prowl, MP Cordon and MP Deep Cover all in one year.

    That's a pretty thick thin blue line.

    Will it be the red Sunstreaker or the police version?

    From the name 'Cordon', sounds like a police version.

    I'm guessing a Decepticon.

    This can stand as the news thread for the MP Police-type Sunstreaker / Cordon / whatever he ends up being.

    MP-42 コルドン = MP-42 Korudon (Translate)

    Korudon ~ Cordon = a line or circle of police, soldiers, or guards preventing access to or from an area or building.

    I'd prefer police Sunstreaker's name to be Mach Alert. Solely because Sunstreaker was once repainted from Mach Alert.

    You know, I fan named him Checkpoint years ago, but I can really live with Cordon.


    And damn it for there being no pictures yet. OR news of Spin-Out.

    Stand-up attitude.


    Diaclone Sunstreaker's red eyes would make a lot of sense as a Decepticon:

    I wonder if he'll get an entirely new, more toy-accurate head. Also, how are they going to handle the lightbar? Very curious to see how this turns out.

    Ooh, I hadn't considered the idea of him being a Decepticon, that'd be a cool touch.

    Awesome! Hope it's legit.

    I guess the G1 MP line is still dead - just some repaint death throes. :)

    In fairness, there's been slow years before. Might be that Takara are getting the ducks in the row for whatever is next. I still think that E-Hobby black Steeljaw means one of the next big guys will be Blaster. I'd imagine licensing is slowing a few of the others up - plus, didn't a creator interview imply Hoist and Trailbreaker were on the shortlist for next releases?

    So what accessories do we think Cordon might come with?

    I'm thinking a new face inspired by the toy is a natural one, but are there any Sunstreaker accessories that could be packed in (like how Exhaust had one of Wheeljack's inventions)?

    Where does the line start to give TT the bird. Seriously you put out a Prowl+ , and make us go the whole year for a flipping repaint. May is one thing but as seeing how the release dates are conveniently clipped, I'm guessing a December release.
    ***Edit***
    @Sam was nice enough to point out this a Oct. release, I will slowly back away with my pitchfork and torches for now
