    There is a very reason why Studio Series was made. I seriously needed the cause to explain why all the information i read treated the first movies as something "classic" or "in the past" (that it's not in day anymore these times). So i guess it was because of that, yes, Studio S line was under the pocket of hasbro and they just delayed it, they wanted to see how TLK could did in toys (and it it decently, however, the movie's perfomance in theaters it just flop), it would be a suicide move to release their tribute line at the same time we got TLK, that's why you can see in the original pictures how the dates were stated tor March-April.

    So probably Hasbro feared about that and delayed it to release it this year, and the first two MpMs did so well, that Takara it's focusing on them now, for the more adult collectors, and probably ironhide and ratchet will do the same but better.

    Even with a reboot, the MPMs will be needed for that.


    TL;DR Movie toys are a success, Hasbro would be an idiot to scratch them.

    I would like to see new characters in the Bayverse style. Hopefully some third parties will keep them going of Hasbro doesn't.
    Maybe the new movie series with continue this aesthetic...

    Agreed. It would've been nice to see what new bots were planned for TF6. I have some pretty good ideas for a Bayverse Cliffjumper and Blurr.

    The door wings have additional paint on them to make them look more screen accurate but that's about all I can find

    I think you're right about that, but why they would do that is beyond my understanding, considering the previous alt mode was already pretty screen accurate

    The additional black on the door wings are nice. I guess one could just as easily paint those too

    Just saw them in the stock photos from the link a few posts above. Actually, I think the Hasbro stock photos had them too, so maybe they’re using the same pictures as before, idk.

    I see. But that's such a minor detail it doesn't matter that much, also it's possible to do it with black sharpie I think.

    The Takara MPM-04 is shown on the box for both releases. Which means this idea may not be that far off.
