    I just heard from a reliable source of mine at Takara that we can expect to see a Masterpiece Hotrod (with trailer add-on for Rodimus) Soundwave, Shockwave, and surprisingly enough, an MP Springer. Also be on the look out for a target or toys r' us exclusive seacons reissue in the near future.

    This all sounds much too good to be true
    Not to say I wouldn't like to see them

    Hmm. Why would they announce 4 MPs at once...?

    We'll see, but it seems pretty unlikely.

    And you have a "source" at Takara? They're not called Takara anymore you know.

    If that's true, I'll shit enough bricks to build a house. It's slightly believable because of the Seacons bit, and we know they're happening, we're just not sure how.

    I'm skeptical.

    MP Soundwave and MP Shockwave both sound incredibly awesome. If true, I would totally buy both!

    MP Springer sounds cool, but I don't know how well they'll pull off making a Triple Changer MP figure...

    So they're effectively doubling the amount of new MP molds? I wish and hope this was true, but I find it highly unlikely. Maybe those are planned for the future, but I can't fathom that they would release so many expensive figures at once.

    Interesting, but doesn't really sound right. I could easily see them announcing one new MP figure, but to announce four new ones at the same time... sounds cool, but not all that likely (though I'd be perfectly fine if I was proved wrong on that).

    Soundwave and Shockwave interest me, but Hot Rod and Springer don't. If Shockwave turns out to be true, I'll definitely be getting MP Grimlock. That way when Hasbro eventually releases their version of Shockwave, I can have the two fighting each other (I'm a big Grimlock vs. Shockwave fan).

    The Seacons set is looking more and more like it's true. Should be interesting to see where it's exclusive to. Probably TRU, but who knows, maybe Target has warmed up to the possibility of reissues. Hopefully more is heard about the supposed 3-pack of Rodimus, Galvatron, and Cyclonus.

    That was my first thought. The MP releases are usually really staggered... I mean, the first one came out nearly 7 years ago (amazing how time's passed!), and since then, there's only been 4 molds in the line and several recolors. So we're expected to believe that the line is going to suddenly double in size?

    Still, I'd kill for an MP Shockwave.

    We've gotten a grand total of 4 MP molds since it was debuted 6 years ago. Have a hard time believing that they would announce 4 more at one time.

    So MP molds that normally take 2-3 years to engineer........ just like that? 4 of them? I can believe ONE and it being Roddy....... but the slew of them?

    Also hard to believe they'd make a Springer before a Galvatron...

    I'm willing to bet that Rodimus will be announced first and the others will trickle out soon after.

    Interesting about the Seacons.

    The first source said that the Rodimus, Cyclonus, Galvatron (though we didn't know who the third was) 3 pack was a SDCC.

    Now someone is saying that the 3 pack is a Target exclusive and the Seacons are SDCC.

    Now another source says the Seacons are a TRU exclusive (which actually makes more sense).

    Forget the Masterpieces (for now), I want to know the deal with the other two, more realistic figure packs...

    Rodimus is a safe bet. Anyone could make that prediction, even without an "inside source".

    so I don't believe you have a source. if you do, they're probably lying to you.

    four new mold MPs announced in one year. no.
