...Masterpiece. Does any one have any idea whats next for the line??
I don't know of any new one's, but, the 2 most popular rumors for the next one seem to be Grimlock and Soundwave. Personally, I would love to see a MP Soundwave. They could even do an accesory pack with MP cassetes for him. Grimlock would be cool to, though if it was a decision between the two of them, I would go for Soundwave first.
What Raven said, but for me I'd prefer Grimlock just because I think the MP line needs some more Autobots.
i think we will see more starscream molds before anything..
they still have thundercracker to do, and if they really want to get the most
of the mold, they will do Sunstorm and hopefully a Ghost of starscream.
Im really hope they make a ghost of starscream!
You have a good point there. If the next new mold is an Autobot, I would personally like to see Skyfire.
Me want Grimlock next. If they don't announce a new mold for the line in January, I'll be buying a Yamato 1/48 VF-1 and making my own Jetfire.
Wasn't it said that a future MP set would be Megs vs Prime? I can't remember what MP-08 was said to be. I wanna say Grimlock but I don't think that's right. I'm pretty sure it was a new mold.
I'm sure we will see thundercracker soon. Then to save money they will probably do a little remolding and we will get the cone heads. Then if we are really lucky we will get a completely new mold.
I dunno...I can see Thundercracker, Sunstorm, and the Coneheads eventually being released, but it just seems like bad business to release repaint after repaint of the same $100 mold. Now I can see new mold, seeker repaint, repaint of new mold, new mold, seeker repaint, new new mold repaint, seeker repaint, etc. Pushing one seeker after another on us is a sure fire way to kill the line.
Now with repaint molds in mind with two repaints being the bare minimum for a mold here would be my release plan
7.Inferno (about the same size as MP SS)
8.Complete Ultra Magnus or cassette MPs
9.Blaster using Soundwave mold
14. Hot Rod (he could be moved up earlier if choosen)
15. Anime Astrotrain
MP-06 is Anime Starscream, yes?
MP-07 is rumored to be an Optimus vs. Megatron giftset.
You have to assume Thundercracker will get released at some point (probably not by Hasbro), but then I think you'll see more popular "G1" characters in Japan, like Soundwave/Soundblaster, Galvatron, Rodimus Convoy, etc.
Got your numbering wrong there brah. 6 was Skywarp.
We need a Masterpiece Jazz (err 'Meister')!
I'm Pretty sure,You're right,Spilts.
It was rumoured that MP-07 would be a two pack of Prime and Megs and Mp-08 would be Anime Starscream. I think that since we're still being told that 'Anime Starscream' would retain the Walmart packaging that he doesn't qualify as an official MP. I'm sure we'll hear something concrete about the next release shortly. I would assume before christmas. Perhaps when Encore Ironhide/Ratchet get released, or Sky Lynx.
Well, with regards to repaints, I'd definitely go with Black Convoy. Simply because MP Skywarp blew my socks off so hard with Takara's take on BLACK.
New molds, I don't know. MPs have this habit of surprising you, so I'm twiddling my thumbs.
The rumours I heard were:
MP-VS set, Convoy Perfect Edition VS Megatron Perfect Edition
MP Starscream, animation colours
I think I heard around when that broke something about a Thundercracker, possibly as a giftbox with Starscream and Skywarp, but I'm not sure if that was speculation or fact. My online translator didn't make it clear.
Grimlock's also been rumoured, Soundwave's been rumoured. They're popular characters so I'd imagine we'll see them.
I'd imagine Bumblebee would also get the Masterpiece treatment, since he's being put in that same group as Prime, Megatron and Starscream in the newer series.
Yeah that whould be cool a masterpiece ironhide whould be sweet(yah no surprize there)
MP Bumblebee would RULE
Grimlock would be cool but I really think Soundwave would be amazing.
Soundwave with MP quality cassette figure (Laserbreak, Ravage, Frenzy and Rumble) are a must. I figure that once there's more concrete details on the next existing release sets (the VS set and/or MP SS in 'toon colors) we'll see info about a new mold...
