    Minibots have been mentioned by the design team?

    He'd better be able to do this.

    If there's no variation of this

    then in all honesty color me entirely disinterested in MP Skyfire.

    I would guess real-world vs chibi and what to do with Bumblebee. I think part of the problem with the 3P cliffjumpers is his bot parts are drawn to match chibi car parts. MMC comes close but they erased an opportunity by adding in an interior thus throwing off the bot. I vote semi chibi myself, a real world would be a heck of a "popple" as you would have to switch out for his chest and feet. They could obviously pull it off but that would be an expensive and complicated cliffjumper.

    Yeah their history as chibi cars is an issue. I’m not sure there really is an official vehicle for Brawn or Gears, I’ve seen their “real world” vehicles listed on wiki pages and what not, but the toys don’t seem to line up to them IMHO, maybe same could be even said for Huffer? Brawn seems like an amalgamation of 3-4 different jeeps. I am not sure Real World is the best way to go for them.

    This new Prime might be a way to draw a line in the sand and start doing more toon inspired alt-modes incase they don’t want to license something?

    I think cliffjumper and windcharger would be the biggest problem, unlike Bee they're so chibified, its hard to tell what their real world alt mode is.

    I think they're easily identified, but it will be difficult to reconcile the chibi proportions of their robot modes with a real-world alt mode. I don't think this'll be much of a problem for Windcharger, but I could see it being a bit of a puzzle for Cliffjumper.

    Pretty much what I was trying to get at last time the subject came up. Interesting that you've now said it too.

    It's a no from me unless the articulation is off the hook but then that'd be even more disappointing.

    Did it? I need to add Huffer... maybe move Bumblebee ahead of Optimus... not much rush on any changes right now.

    Disagree with that: the 3P companies have done it already (toon bot mode, real life alt mode)

    Oh, those changes. Well, Jazz was a reaction to what turned out to be negligence on Takara's part (mislabeling Megatron as 44), so he sank back down, and movie Megatron may seem to have come from nowhere but we are due a new MPM reveal soon and why shouldn't it be him?

    I like that you've got MPM Megs and Starscream on the same odds too.

    Well, Starscream comes from an actual rumor (NOTRAB, was it?), so I can't very well elevate my own gut feeling that Megatron is going to jump over him ahead of something quasi-official. Bet-hedging at its best, over here. :thumb

    an mp magnus sized skyfire would be about right (mp magnus is too tall) if a tiny bit small. one thing he really needs....a waist swivel. aside from being too tall thats the thing FT messed up most. a bot that size benefits a lot from a waist swivel (something mp magnus should have had too).

    We are still too far to get a Movie Megatron.

    Seems about fair.

    Obviously a hint for a MP mini bot.
