    Bumblebee? In what way does ...
    Oh wait. The yellow.
    That's right, if a MP+ is a way to get a canary yellow Bumblebee, like every other Bumblebee ever made, I'll jump for joy. I refuse to buy the orange MP. I have doubts that will ever happen, but I'd sure like it to happen.

    If the absurd Shockwave + release is any indication, slight color variants are fair game now.

    Also, it does not look as "orange" in person - it's really a great figure; highly recommend it

    So what are we expecting from the 35 th anniversary. There be a BW Megatron, will Hasbro bring him over? It would be an odd choice for them right out the shoot to go with a big BW MP. If hes a legitimate Hasbro release they could offer him at a cheaper price possibly but Ive always thought starting off with Primal may be a better idea.

    An Optimus that may or not be an MP, which I would expect to get a Hasbro release especially if its unlicensed. Doubt we see MP42 at all stateside, and there be atleast one MPM for the anniversary, but them rebooting the movies has to have some bearing in the future.

    So what else is likely, it actually be ing an anniversary year I expect to see Hasbro bring some releases stateside. Do they dip into another line for an anniversary MP? Do they look at a TFTM character for release? Chance we finally see a more prominent Japanese G1 character next year, Dai Atlas, Sixshot, or Chromedome

    With no TRU chances of Hasbro working with online stores to bring over MP 29+ or possibly 36+? I know the odds for Megatron are pretty much none but maybe allowing for distribution through adult specialty shops would keep a gun release out of the public eye in the US. They could literally make it an 18+ release.

    Interesting. I totally forgot about the combined Hasbro-Takara MP news we got a while back. I wonder if it will be selective or every release starting with MP17+. My guess is the former.

    So what's different between MP-29 and MP-36 and the plus versions?

    MP-29+ is just a darker colour, more along the lines of the toy as opposed to the lighter colour he was on the show.

    Really, it's a repaint for the people that found their manhood deeply threatened by the idea of a lilac-coloured mass-murdering spacegun :rolleyes:

    Or people just want one accurate to the show... Sure, you can probably find a couple scenes from a wildly inconsistent animation where he's MP-29 color...but that's not his 'usual' color. Luckily my manhood is secure enough just to stick with MP-29...either that or I'm just too cheap to dish out $200 to correct the damn thing.

    Wonder how much of MP29+ is Hasbro Asia's doing versus Takara's. Just seems more like something Hasbro Asia want's for their market versus Takara's. MP 36+ kind of surprises me, I figured a toys colored anyway Megatron would be a general release as it would probably sell pretty good. Maybe both were projects that Hasbro Asia asked for to add to the end of year releases with no new mold. It looks like the Taoboa listings were insurance for lack of a new mold this year, and the reissues would allow them to have something to sell.

    Oh please. I’m a gay man who wears lilac all the time. I put a woman’s bath robe on every morning because it’s ruby red and way prettier than what I could find in the men’s department. I’m ridiculously in touch with my feminine side, and I have despised having a lilac Shockwave since getting it in hand. To me that character is a darker purple, and that’s why I’m buying the MP+ release, whereas my hopelessly straight best friend loves his lilac space gun and refuses to part with it. People have different tastes. I don’t see any reason to question their manhood because of it.

    MP-29+ is a darker purple more in line with how he looked in the toon most of the time, and includes an extra left hand. MP-39+ is chrome with a lot more red accents and a new head to match the original toy.

    Honestly, apologies that I offended you. I am speaking to the level of small-minded shittiness that I've seen about that colour choice.
