    Thanks a lot Emperor! Love it when you guys take the time to do these translations! :) 

    So you think means Hasui is actually working overseas (US?) making sure combiner wars is done right?

    That 'forward projecting accessory' for Inferno is the one we've seen in pics - the alternate truck front with the clear plastic rests for Red Alert.

    No problem guys.
    That makes sense Liam, I wondered what those parts were when I first saw them.
    Yes I believe so, It seems he is working very closely with Hasbro on these lines to represent the US and JPN version aswell as sharing the costs. I'd say Hasui probably was promoted rather than demoted like others have supposed. The lines he is working on are mass release items that will generate the higher overrall income.
    I feel we may see a MP Chromedome in 2017 developed by Hasui as a biproduct of his current work.

    Inferno's transformation looks like it's going to be amazing.

    inferno brings me one step closer to my dream of a full 1984 to 1986 mp roster.

    Inferno looks really good.

    What are those AOE Optimus and Bumblebee figures?

    Wow, does Inferno's ladder really fold up into his torso? That's a fantastic solution. One reason I'm usually pretty cold towards fire truck TFs is that they often have a big ladder hanging on them somewhere, getting in the way of handling and posing.

    Im really digging the toon accuracy that they are doing now. Inferno looks BOMB-tastic, he is a deffinate buy. Cheetor looks great too. Man takara, back at it again with making my wallet empty. Lol

    I'm not even a huge fan of the character, but this Inferno has skyrocketed to my list of "Must haves", along with Cheetor who was already there.
    Yeah, it's a good time for the MP line.

    Inferno looks great. Being able to hide the ladder in bot mode is genius. Glad i canceled MMC Backdraft.

    Those diaclone power suits look great, even better they can interact with Diabattles! Hopefully they won't cost too much, I can see myself wanting to troop build with these things :lol 
    Oh, and something about masterpieces and head/god masters :D

    MP Inferno, other - perhaps - than Star Saber, has to be the cleanest MP in terms of kibble I've ever seen.

    The Headmaster theme continuing in 2017 has me really worried for Trypiticon. I would prefer he didn't have that gimmick. If it's a prerequisite, I would have liked to have known before voting. Scorponok would have been better in that case.

    While I like Ginrai's ankle tilts something about the shape of those feet bothers me.
