    I was looking at Snaka blog regarding TG-23 Metroplex, so I googled for translation. Then it mentioned MP Smokescreen, FMax, and other stuff. Can someone translate the Japanese writing?
    トランスフォーマー新ç€æƒ…報ブログ - フィギュア王No.184


    Here's the Google translation:
    interview with Maeda Scripture fall of Mr. TF marketing producer of Takara Tomy. From the deployment of 2013, what to talk about the prospects for TF30 anniversary next year. The excerpt the part to be worried about personally.

    * Seems to have an ulterior motive, such as to appeal to presence of Takara Tommy TF market in the world Japan's own deployment of TFGo!. So samurai catchy even overseas motif.
    * I had a better-than-expected response to reprint Fortress Maxi trout, a product with many hope we hope to continue to reprint the future.
    * MP Prowl, streaks corresponding to postpone the launch in the number of orders than expected.
    * Character of 3 body eyes MP Fairlady Z type with regard (smoke screen), to announce the time is not far away. Differences in the design of setting screen is reflected considerably.
    * I would like to expand with future vehicle copyright real car of MP. I have continued to approach without giving up with regard manufacturers copyright is not going down easily.
    * Apparently there is a significant announcement at the stage of the toy show.

    Because it is only an excerpt, above, we recommend that to determine the content on reading the original text.

    ◆ test shot fastest publication of TG-23 metroplex. In the molding of non-coloring, photo is posted of the upper body 3 mode + full size.

    The Japanese version, painted unlike overseas edition, (overseas only one order) gun 2 Ding included. For gimmick, click-to joints. And chest eye ◎ Ali emission gimmick in clear parts. Crane base mode, can be mounted to 5 mm hole of each place. In city mode, starting route is connected to the distal end of the leg from the slope of the breast. Right arm will scan turret par Norikomeru. And that will is written.

    It says Prowl and Bluestreak got delayed because TT wasn't expecting so many orders.
    Smokescreen will be revealed soon and it'll look quite different from his brothers.
    TT will keep harassing the car makers that won't allow them to use their cars.
    Looks like something's big will be revealed at the Tokyo international toy show (June 15th and 16th). Masterpiece Fortress Maximus? (I kid)
    Fortress Maximus sold above their expectations, so the Encore line will continue.
    MP Tigertrack will be a Tokyo Toy show exclusive and will come with the Amazon.jp pile drivers for MP12 (no chrome).

    I don't care about the other crap, so I didn't bother reading the rest.

    Well, that's interesting, but I guess there was demand enough for a grail/reissue/never had at that price point.

    Awesome news from TTomy, I can't wait to see MP Smokescreen. MP FMax? That would be priceless if it happens!

    I would love to see a reissue Star Saber..wishful thinking... Lol :D 

    If they can reissue FM & make the recent Asian exclusive Sixshot with the metallic paint apps, nothing is impossible nowadays.

    I guess that means the speculation that Smokescreen could get pushed back from the MP-19 spot was unfounded.

    I wonder if the TakaraTomy reveal will be their version of Metroplex. They've teased it, sure but haven't actually shown the deco.

    Nice, can't wait for the reveals in June. I'm guessing that something big is MP-20? Hope so.

    Let's hope that MP-20 is a new Megatron. My MP-05 is unceremoniously lying on the floor, cosmic rusting away, and I can hardly bring myself to care.

    The mold hasn't aged well at all.

    Don't think we are seeing combiners any time soon, it's the big 3 (Megs etc) that's what I'm guessing. Who knows it could be something unrelated to MP.
