    YES, IT IS! Even says it in my signature! :) 
    I update it as I find out new information. I usually post a weekly summary post, but with CNY there hasn't been too much going on.

    Thank you for the kind words. This guide was started by another user here (@unexpectedpanda). I took over back in April of last year!

    Sure. As long as it's MP scale, I'll add it to the list.

    So... is there any sort of approximation of any of the Autobot leaders before Optimus, as shown in Season 3? Sentinel Prime, Zeta Prime, etc? I expect that it's a pretty niche market considering they only appeared in one episode - but then again, they are also represented (though perhaps in different interpretations) in other media like the Marvel comic.

    I suspect that the answer is no...

    I can only add to the list from what I know is released or announced. It's up to Takara and/or third party to design them. As of right now, there are no MP scale releases for those characters that I know about.

    I think you may want to add JuJiang Jet commander to the suggestions for superion. Sort of like UW devy.

    Hi, thanks for the suggestion. This guide tends avoid KO/Oversized figures for the most part. When you do see them it's usually because there is no other good alternative. So, since we have one Superion partially released and one more on the way, I don't think the JuJiang version is a good fit. The UW/CW Devastator is an official release that, for some people, can fill in as an MP. Hope that explains it!

    Thanks. Yeah I was wondering since you did include some ko’s. All good though. They are a currently available and perfectly acceptable version though.

    Yup, there definitely are some KOs in there. I try to remove them once an official or a 3P with a unique mold are announced/available. In fact, I should go through all the combiners as there are a few I should remove such as the OS Bruticus since Zeta and Unique toys are partially released.

    Isn't GT-11 the Lambor and GT-12 the Hot Rodimus?
