    I agree. The aesthetic of the WFC/FoC is too close to G1 and next to nothing like Prime. Shockwave was my chug one but he's too small.

    I don't want any 84 character that allready has an official MP to get a new one in the next fifteen years.

    My opinion is that BadCubes Sunsurge looks better than the upcoming MP Sunstreaker (from the pics at least).

    The new Sunstreaker does have better feet, but his profile is too chunky (and TT seems to no longer care about side and rear appearance of their figures) . Sunsurge looks slim and sleek, as Sunstreaker should.

    The offcial MPs are pretty cheaper in comparison with "High quality" collectables with even more expensive prices from other brands.

    I think FOC Optimus looks better than WFC Optimus

    I prefer Human Alliance Bumblebee (even with his issues) over both of the MPM versions of BB

    IDW agrees with you! They used a bunch of the WFC/FOC designs as the Cybertronian bodies for the G1 crew. You have official repurposing on your side.

    enough of mp10...seriously, he's being reissued and repainted every 10 minutes. mp10 needs to be officially retired.

    plus at this point doesn't everyone have one in some color by now?

    They're doing Blaster BEFORE they do Jazz?? What do they have against Jazz? He's the only carbot I want an MP of.
    I actually appreciate the reissues. My MP10 is old and dusty and getting a bit loose in places. I want a fresh new one that I can then keep better care of, and have the old one for messing around with.

    Though it'll be some time before I can afford a second one, hopefully the reissue will still be on shelves by then.

    It's a licensing issue with Porsche.

    Well in that case here's another opinion.

    MP shouldn't have to mean 100% slavish to any aesthetic and striving for such is probably costing more than its making, otherwise 3P wouldn't be so prevalent.

    Agreed. I liked the earlier MP carbots that were trying to be realistic in both robot and vehicle modes with inspiration from the toy and cartoon. The new ones are trying way too hard to be exactly like said cartoon.

    I don't like playing with Alexander Kubalsky designed toys. They look cool, but they're not for me

    I wish Gen. Whirl had a G1 head and not an IDW head.

    One of the plethora of reasons I dislike IDW. I hated most of the game designs, and was disappointed they used Shockwave's. I'm cool with an updated design, but his game design just doesn't work for me.

    The frequency is a good sign:
    1) it shows that they are capable of doing so
    2) and hopefully they will quickly reach a stage that most of the G1 bots are covered by them
