    Disclaimer: Might be an April Fool's Joke!

    Thanks to fellow TFW2005.com user Automorpher for pointing this out to me -- a thread on SGCollect.com (Got this email fax... from japan - SGCollect.com Forums) shows what seems like "a fax from Japan" stating that the next Masterpiece might be Devastator!

    This is the attachment included in thread starter's post:

    Truth or hoax? Mere rumour? April Fool's Joke? Can anyone be so kind as to translate what is being said?

    SGC member gits_sac posted: "The first ever MP combiner. Each is 1/24 scale. Will be featured at Wonder Festival 2009. Production starts 2010. 9000 yen???"

    He also added: "My friend who knows Japanese, pointed out that first release is 9000 Yen...... 9000 Yen X 6 -- Pray its April fool joke"

    Most expensive MP ever?

    If this is true, DO WANT!

    That would put it around $550 for a Devy. Unless they do it as a bi-monthly release this is bound to fail. That would put it at twice the cost of an item like SOC Godmarz, which would be absurd.

    I call shenanigans.

    They would be better off going with a much smaller scale if they do it.

    at the end of Transformers Generation 2009 vol.1,they said there is no plan for next MP now and Rodimus Prime is the most possible next one.

    Yup. It is, just past midnight here, timezone of GMT +8.

    You make a very good point. Just hoping against hope. :(

    I call bullshit. Would love it to be true though.

    The next MP will be one than can get some repaints out of if they follow the trend. My money is on Soundwave
