    Optimus, Hot Shot and Red Alert at the very least. Probably Megatron and Starscream too. I'd love to see Cyclonus and Demolishor, and maybe even Smokescreen. (I mean, open the floodgates and let in Scavenger, Sideways, Side Swipe, Wheeljack, Jetfire and Tidal Wave, but I'm trying to be realistic.)

    I mean....not really anything mysterious there. It's the leaders of the various TV shows.

    The problem is collectors who can’t handle delayed gratification. ;)

    They released Star Saber and Optimus Primal.

    And from the poll results we probably never going to have a MP Fortress Maximus. But at least I now have two figures that I like (MP Star saber and TR Fortress Maximus), maybe an MP Fortress would have been ridiculously small or ridiculously expensive.

    To be delayed gratification, we would have to know that something is coming in the end. It isn't delayed gratification when there is no information about anything coming. I don't mind waiting for an announced figure, but waiting for an announcement that may never come is frustrating.

    Oh well it's the Tokyo Toy Show in a couple of months, If they don't announce anything there I think it's going to be slim pickings this year.

    Who wants to start collecting My Little Pony's? Guys? Guys? Hello?

    I'm sure a MP armada Prime would have more success than Star Saber, IMO, because star saber has been an obscure character for years while Optimus not, even if it is more recognized in japan, Optimus, it's just much, like MUCH more recognized in the rest of the world.

    This year, it's the 15th annivesary of Armada in Japan.

    It could be that with the whole brand unification thing characters from the Unicron trilogy may have priority over the ones from Super God Masterforce or Victory, but there are already three continuities in the MP line, so I don't see Tamara adding another one soon.

    Excuses, excuses. ;) 

    True, and I wasn’t referring to information with my tongue-in-cheek comment. Regardless, it still doesn’t seem to me that there’s absolutely no light at the end of this announcement tunnel.

    We have a teaser for a 35th anniversary project that is very likely to be a new MP Convoy/Optimus Prime. The official reveal for that will come.

    Takara-Tomy designers have mentioned in an interview that they’re working on Trailbreaker and Hoist. The official reveal for those will come.

    I also believe that the insider info we’ve had floating around regarding Meister, Hound, Mirage, Blaster, Galvatron, and others is accurate and will pay off in the near future. Megatron v2 and Sunstreaker were once part of that same batch of rumors.

    There’s a lot of time-consuming work that goes into the mold-making process. My feeling is that they have some great things in the works and have been better able to keep info from leaking than they were in the past.

    If course, only time will tell. :)

    Here the thing it's that there's no need to have a complete line from armada, at least for Takara.
    We can have just one.

    of course not, but I think they should at least be prepared to continue the line if that one character turns out to be extremely popular.
