    Misdirection. They said "all TF fans will be very happy". Since when has that ever happened? ;)

    How would robot kingdom know what it is? I mean, unless Takara is giving pre orders, how would they know?

    Besides his mold being reusable, Prowl was always my favorite character of all the cars from G1. However, I think aesthetically Sideswipe was my favorite. Still I agree and think Prowl should have been done first.

    Cool!
    Soundwave would be an awesome addition to the line, especially if a us release was to arrive. Although Jazz would be pretty sick aswell. :D

    Just realized something on Breakdown. If you look at his prototype pics, you can see that his shoulder cannon is built in to the design. It's a little triangular thing to the right of his head.

    yup, this. also according to Robotkingdom, the exclusive Prime sets are scheduled to ship a day after the show ends. Hmmm, that should allow the stuff 5 days to arrive at my door step. :D

    MP12 and MP13 "Soundwave" are must buy for me. However, if TTomy MP Red Alert turns out to be a straight repaint of MP12 and the price is still 120+, I'll pass and wait for Hasbro. Animation wise, Red Alert is still different from Sideswipe so as a MP figure, I expect to see different head (obviously) but also spoiler on his back, and flap on his arm just like G1 toy. I guess, it's too far ahead into the future.

    They're jumping the gun. There's no solicitation for this from the suppliers yet, and both TFSource and BBTS are guessing (on the high end) in order to try and capture early buyers.

    I'll be waiting for actual information to offer it...

    That's irrelevant. The front page post claims that showing the back view somehow implies this will be used as Sunstreaker. It does nothing of the sort. It might happen, sure, but calling anything here evidence for that is ridiculous.

    I question your reasoning as well. I understand it, but I don't agree. Show me another Masterpiece line figure that would be anywhere near as far off-model from both the original toy and the cartoon as this would be if reused for Sunstreaker. They just don't do that in the MP line, historically - they always aim for some hybrid of show and toy that evoked both exceptionally well. Turning this into Sunstreaker doesn't come close to that goal.

    The shadow solicitation images don't mean anything with the Prime line. They tend to reuse them pretty randomly.

    I'm guessing they have connections in the right places.

    That would explain the lack of translucent plastic like on all the other PRiD molds.
