    Well quite, a reasonable assumption to make given that is what has happened every other time we've seen an MP prototype, but an assumption none the less. Like I've said before, TT follow no discernible rhyme or reason. I'm as certain as I can be that we will see an MP Dinobot, but can't say with any certainly when that will be.

    Did Sunstreaker and the new Targetmaster Hod Rod come out of nowhere? Is there any hope Dinobot will appear fully-colored and ready for pre-order in a magazine or will we have to go through the grey prototype phase?

    At this point it could very well just pop-up fully colored and ready for pre-orders, but I think it'll go through the grey prototype phase first.

    There's hope.

    I hope we see the mpm04 in vehicle mode too.

    Cheetor had flawed toys before MP, Megatron literally crumbled apart. A MP Rattrap would have to be pretty fucking good in order for it to be worth it over the awesome Generations Rattrap from a couple years ago, for me.

    Dinobot fits with them too, previous flawed toys that could use a superior touch. It makes sense they start with Primal and then seemingly continue with fan favorites that had flaw toys. That's why I believe Megatron is next after Dinobot gets released soon.

    No it hasn't. What we've seen was a leak of something only the people who attended Takara's panel at Tokyo Toy Show should've seen.

    We, the public, have not been shown anything official yet aside from the CG renders, which is why Takara can easily just start advertising with the grey prototype and begin the cycle that way.

    Hmmmm I suppose. What I was saying is (regardless of whether we should have seen it or not) we know and have seen that it's going through the prototype phase right now. I didn't realise the two of you meant 'will we see the prototype in magazines before we see a full colour version?' rather than just 'will we see a prototype before the finished product?' (something we didn't see with Sunstreaker). The answer to this is of course, that's anyone guess.

    I think the biggest mistake anyone makes with TT is thinking they have a fixed or even mildly predictable procedure for MP releases. They appear to approach each one in an individual(bespoke?) manner.

    That's true; he could pop up for pre-order next month without any of the usual build-up advertisement whatsoever.

    We think it’s unlikely but with Takara anything can happen :lol

    So there might be hope for Rattrap and Megatron. The rest is hard to say.

    Well in all honesty I wouldn't put too much stock in the rumour. It didn't predict Dinobot and it was that long back now that even if true TT could have made U-turns on both.

    Also, it's not just waiting for promo pictures of the robot mode, but the Dino mode to. I mean, that first picture was a 3D Rendering, which made it look more Eggplant like. And I know Dinobot is much skinnier in the show in Dino mode.

    Not really, he's actually really wide. It was like they were attempting a weird halfway between the toy and a Jurrassic Park raptor and just had this really fat raptor with wide hips.

    Once TT announced MP Hot Rod & Shockwave at that one show, and then again when they revealed MP Primal and Cheetor of all things... I was convinced, as others have said, that there's no predicting them at all lol.

    I truly do feel like they just do whatever catches the designers' fancy, (filtered through the lens of, "And is it likely to sell enough to make the R&D, design, and production worth it?" of course) lol.

    Who they do, when they come out, when they announce them... your guess is as good as anyone else's. Make a wheel. Throw a dart. Flip a coin lmao.
