Who is that?

Wow...a G2 figure.

Of course, that's a MP-12 repaint...not MP-20.

Translation: New MP is G2 Ranboru!

The Dark Seeker


Bought on site!


Like literally.....its going to be on some e-tailer right? Anyone know?

At first glance, I thought it was Deep Cover.
BScorpinok75
Is that Deep Cover?
Yeled
Its G2 Lambor/Sideswipe.

G2 comic tires.

Crystal Convoy
Missing a lot of red if it's supposed to be G2 Sideswipe.
blackout501st

gawddammit

Acid Wing
Brilliant. It seems to have the extreme 90s Manny Galan/Derek Yaniger grin for the facesculpt.=)
Stepper
A repaint,not a new mold.

I'm hoping that's cause Prototype. What with the weapons untainted grey.

-ZacWilliam, it's that or they merged him with Clampdown bu that seems unlikely and kinda dumb.
robvega214
who is this guy?
gawddammit
I need this in my life. NOW.
Lbsammills51
G2 SIDESWIPE!!!

(That said, I hope that's not the final deco - needs more red plus paint aps or stickers to complete the G2 look.)

They may have also decided a straight black Lamborghini would be pretty iconic. Its not like they need to go for toon accuracy.

There goes the "no more license" nonsense

Ah ha. That is likely true.
Ravenxl7
That's pretty cool. Won't get it, but it is pretty cool to see them branching out of G1, even if it is just a repaint/retool. I'm still kinda hoping one of these new, smaller sized, MP molds makes it's way to the US market via Hasbro. There's really no hope for this mold, so maybe Prowl or Mirage...

Also, should this news be its own thread?
Crystal Convoy
MP fan choice? And Star Saber's an option? Oh fuck yes!! Give it to me now!
DemonQueller
Wow! Nicely done TT! Never saw G2 SS in stores as a kid, but loved the look in the comic. Definitely picking this up.

I'm assuming it's just a "wish list" and they're not saying they're going to make these, correct?

EDIT:

Oh wait, the poll hasn't happened yet? Do people actually get to pick one???
Stepper
Wow,so the thread regards to "Really strange pics from Takaratomy" is true,they are really having plan for MP Ginrai,Star Sabre,Lio Convoy & they let us pick one.

I would vote for MP Fort Max,which most likely will be the Biggest Transformers if it is going to be in MP.

Marvel Comics G2 Sideswipe?!! AWESOME

Really???????

How DO I make Japan Vote for Fort Max or God Ginrai???

I NEEEED those two like a white hot sun!


-ZacWilliam, PLEASE JAPAN! PLEEEEEASSSSE!
Yeled
Can someone identify all those characters? I'm out of my American G1 comfort zone.
FoC Grimlock
Oh boy. A 4th Lambor deco.
Ravenxl7
Where and how many times can I vote...I'll repeat, WHERE and HOW MANY TIMES can I VOTE!!! A Masterpiece RID Optimus Prime MUST HAPPEN!!! I'm not optimistic at it's chances at winning the poll, especially up against Fort Max, but still... MASTERPIECE RID OPTIMUS PRIME MUST HAPPEN!!!!!! I don't care if i have to import it, if they actually made him, I'd buy him. I'd probably even go as far as to buy both the Takara and Hasbro releases...
Shatterpoint
I'm voting Masterpiece Armada Prime...if I can that is.
Cyclonus79
MP Fort Max FTW! Holy shiznit ! Could you imagine?! Omg!
Bass X0
They'll predictably choose Star Saber I should imagine.
Stepper
Seeing the pic of MP fan choice make me so excited.

In order...

Fort Max
Super Ginrai/PM Optimus
Star Saber
Dai Atlas
Optimus Primal
Lio Convoy
Big Convoy
RiD Optimus
Armada Supermode Optimus
Energon Optimus
Cybertron Optimus
Wikkid
Looks like they're about to shit on the MP line.
OptionZero
1 - Fort Max (G1)
2 - God Ginrai/Powermaster Prime (G1)
3 - Star Saber (Transformers: Victory)
4 - Dai Atlas (Transformers: Zone)
5 - Optimus Primal (Beast Wars)
6 - Lio Convoy (Beast Wars II)
7 - Big Convoy (Beast Wars Neo)
8 - Fire Convoy (Car Robots)
9 - Optimus Prime (Armada)
10 - Optimus Prime (Energon)
11 - Galaxy Convoy (Galaxy Force)

Kind of a disappointing list - why bother with non-G1 guys? Do we need more Primes? How the hell is a Fort Max physically possible?

Unless all of these possibilities are already well into the design stage, they won't show up for years.

I'd take Star Saber who has gotten zero updates since TF Victory (ain't counting robot masters)
SurlyJ
Jeez. Milking that Lambor mold! A black one... Damn I want it. No recollection of the character...

Don't forget the neon green.

But to be honest, G2 Sideswipe's colors work well together.

Masterpiece Optimus Primal, Takara. NOW.
Starscream NZ
Anyone thinking that a MP Fortress Maximus would be to scale must be dreaming? Might get one a bit taller than the old MP's but that's about it. It wouldn't much better than Titan Metroplex/G1 Fort Max.

I'd rather see Star Saber, Beast Convoy and RiD Prime get upgrades first.

It will be a difficult choice for the fans as all the leaders are fans all time favourite i suppose.
