    Blaster is confusing, because when I last checked, HLJ still had him up for pre-order. He'd be the first I'd buy though. If only he were cheaper... The Alternity figures all look nice though. I just wish I could afford to buy at least Convoy.

    A new MP for 2010? Hmm, MP Galvatron and/or MP Rodimus Prime...yep, reckon those'd pretty much qualify as must-haves. :thumb 

    *speculates wistfully*

    Wait, wait, wait...guys, calm down. Mr. Kobayashi just says "If possible, we hope to produce new MP(s) suitable for memorable year:2010." and no proof for MP Rodimus or something.

    But this is at least the second time he referes to "2010". Below quote is taken from Generations 2009 vol.2 interview.
    (I posted this in one of the MP wishlist threads in TF Toyark in June.)

    Whoa, a hot rod to rodimus prime mold would be incredible. It is actually the best way to handle both characters since, if we only get hot rod, we wont get a rodimus prime and vice-versa.

    I like his thinking of making Rodimus Prime into a cool character... and a high end, quality product. It seems like his transformation if Takara designers follow the cartoons animation is not difficult but I would be curious to see what the designers and engineers come up with. Im very excited of the possibility of making Rodimus Prime into a masterpiece...:D ream:

    I would prefer Galvatron, but a Hot Rod/Rodimus would also be quite epic.

    Besides, the Autobots (Cybertrons) are getting outnumbered.

    Only if it is with an alt mode similar to his original one and not a tank. The Deluxe tank would have probably worked as a Voyager far better than it did as the version we got. However, the original alt mode still has a special place in my heart and I want a decent rendition of it. Masterpiece is the most likely way I'm going to get that.

    That would be epic.

    We were speculating in the Human Alliance thread that a Human Alliance Hot Rod would be awesome, but a masterpiece Hot Rod/R Prime would be so much more. And maybe they could make it work with a HA scale figure as well.

    And if they miss 2010, the movie's 25th anniversary is 2011, so they should definitely take their best shot at it.

    Now that's an interesting point to remember. There is likely to be some sort of celebration of that anniversry by either Takara-Tomy or Hasbro.

    MP Rodimus in 2010 would be way too cool. Though for my own reasons, I hope he's MP Grimlock/Starscream sized. Looking forward to Alternity Cliffjumper and Bumblebee.

    And hopefully TakTomHasbro will pull out all of the stops. Just like they did for the 25th Anniversary of the brand.

    I like the idea of a Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime combo.

    I've given up on any kind of scale with the MPs so all I'd ask is for Hot Rod to either be:

    1. approx. 1/24 (and fit in with my BTs) and Rodiums to be the same height as Prime and Megs

    or...

    2. for Hot Rod to be approx. 1/32 (and fit in with my Alternity) with Rodimus to be the same height as Grimlock and iGear's MP Prime.

    Thank you kindly.

    If they do a Galvatron as well I only hope the do him the same size as Rodimus Prime. The G1 toys were hopelessly out!
