    These are scans from Generations Volume 2, most likely just the designer having some fun while working on MP-10.

    Please be 3rd party ... I mean, come on, are you serious?

    Let's just say we are getting an MP Huffer ... my reaction to that would be "really?" Of all the characters to do, Shockwave, Galvatron, Soundwave ... we'd get Huffer?

    I'd buy it though ...

    Same here... I thought that the MP note there was for the Prime, not Huffer.... If you look at the cab design, it doesn't match Huffer's. Third part iGear already has Huffer coming out in December.

    Definitely not third-party, this is from an official TF book. I suppose a third-party company could attempt to turn design into reality the same way BTS did with Guido Guidi's concept Soundwave for All Hail Megatron.

    Here's a link to the scans at The Allspark:

    Anyone read Katakana? Curious what the red script is there on Huffer's picture. Since all the other pictures are of Optimus, I'd assume the Huffer drawing is something else.

    Its the kanji thats the problem. Can only read the red text and it says 'this is the vision of MP Drag!'. I think it is just concept art.

    Old saying "Winner, winner, chicken dinner". Just acknowledging that you were correct about this just being concept art.

    I'm far from an expert on reading Japanese language but the red text says something along the likes of: this is Masterpiece Drag (which is Huffer's Japanese name).
    The text below mentions something about an interview and ends with the word hoshii, which means want.

    I'm thinking this is just one of the designers' fantasies and not the reveal of MP-11.

    EDIT: Beaten to the punch. And yeah, kanji's a bitch :p

    I don't have the book, but sounds like there's another interview of Mr. Hasui, who designed MP-10, and this MP Huffer is mentioned in the interview. I doubt it is actually in the works though, as the text uses "幻" (Maboroshi) which indicates this will only remain as a concept.

    Thanks for the clarification SydneyY :D . I was wondering if 幻 would be the key here.
