    Looks like I need to buy MPM-3 before MPM-5 gets released...
    What is Barricade without Bumblebee?

    Well IMHO, MPM line will not complete every movie bots.
    Safe to say they will release most bots from 2007 film in commemorating 10 years of the movie.
    They may complete the Autobot Line Up composed of 5 bots. We have currently 2 of them.
    I doubt if they complete the Decepticon Line Up.

    Will there be a huge demand for an MPM Bonecrusher compared to Blackout and Brawl?
    Well Megatron and Starscream is sure to be there though.

    As for future MPM releases covering ROTF and DOTM, I think if ever make some, probably they'll make MPM version of "characters who matters" from those film. I don't expect much from them to make MPM of the Twins, Sideways, Jolt, Que. If they make MPM Wreckers, it could be a Takara release only.

    Here's my MPM wishlist for ROTF and DOTM
    - Sideswipe (ROTF)
    - Bumblebee (ROTF, DOTM) (yup they'll milk it)
    - Optimus Prime (DOTM) (with flight tech suit)
    - Megatron (ROTF, DOTM)
    - Sentinel Prime
    - Soundwave (DOTM)
    - Starscream (TFTM = no stripes; ROTF/DOTM = with stripes)

    and if I may add.....

    - MPM Lockdown (AOE). But I wonder the cost since Lamborghini could raise the licensing fee affecting the SRP.

    as for Ironhide, I think it will be the same molds all over. Leader Class IH from DOTM is already a good template for them to start on and just scale it with MPM-4. MPM-Jazz is a must. MPM-Ratchet, I hope so. He's the most least likeable autobot compared to the 4 autobots.

    I disagree that Bonecrusher should get singled out. Brawl and Starscream both have leader toys that could stand in for MPMs, while Bonecrsuher doesn't. Really, add in the fact that Blackout will also be getting a Leader toy (albeit, one far too small to work with MPM or ROTF Prime but still able to partially sate peoples desires for any sort of larger Blackout) and I wonder if the demand for Bonecrusher would be that much smaller than for any of the other 07 Decepticons? After all, his battle with Prime is fairly iconic, among movie fans.

    Huh. Never noticed that they screwed up Bee's blaster. Not certain what I'm supposed to be looking for, on Prime's blade.

    Yeah, it's not something that's gonna bother me, but having Bee's cannon flipped is a pretty big oversight for something that's supposed to be a Masterpiece.

    Hold up...it’s not flipped...the arm on the MPM is just rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise.

    Correctly positioned:

    I fail to see what's wrong with Bee's blaster. It looks pretty spot-on to me.

    I pray a third party company releases an easy-to-install light-up kit. If the transformation permits.

    dotm 10th anniversary is coming and Hastak might want to move on to the casts in that film as there are trios, retools and new characters that fans will demand for. so if the completion of the 07 cast is to happen then they don't have a lot of time, 3 years is literally all they have

    I don't really think they'll celebrate ROTF/DOTM/AOE's anniversaries, maybe with re-issues and one or two new molds, but i can be wrong.

    I just can't wait to have my hands on this. Forget waiting for retail, I'm just going to preorder for higher price.

    Can the blaster sit more flush so you don't notice the seam so much?
