I've beeen thinking about this for a little while now and the recent news of a Generations Arcee has me thinking again. We all know that Takara-Tomy and Hasbro are aware of the 3rd party companies. We can't be naive and think that they don't. But, when Masterpiece Rodimus was announced right around the time Fansproject Protector was due made me think that Hasbro/Takara is aware of these 3rd party companies and is trying to combat them with their own releases of the same characters. The speculation of a USA MP Rodimus reiterated the possibility of this scenario in my opinion. Now we have the recent walmart listing for Generations Deluxe Arcee not long after the IGear Arcee came out. What do you think about this possibility?
