I think it'll be an original character or an original character with Grant homages to it.
Been a bit since they've done an MP Collab... And technically that was Takara, no?
They likely will heavily retool hound's Siege deluxe, I'd venture to guess... Xpanse aside collars have been reshells and minor retools.
Maverick was a brand new mold, wasn't he?
Still waiting for Cyberjets from that mold Hasbro!
My bad. You are correct.
This thing isn't priced at an MP level. It's not an MP.
Mp-10G was the last MP collaboration, and that was done by Hasbro. Ectotron is kind of MP, at least in scale, and he had a re-release with a new head a few months ago.
Ectotron was also more a new mold than resell or retool, only really sharing the thighs with onslaught and hot spot. Everything else was new tooling.
Maybe this is completely out of left field, but a 2 pack with a redecoed Siege Hound as a JP jeep and a repainted Kingdom Megatron mold would be great with the "chase" scene as the backdrop ala Studio Series. A pack like this would run around $70, which is only $5 more than X-spanse retailed for.
This is kindof what I was thinking, if it was a two pack.
T-Rex Megs and SS Jeep Bee.
Do we have a price point yet?
I haven’t been following the leaked listings super closely.
It probably won’t happen, but a Dilophosaurus mould would be nice…
So was this suppose to be the draculus listing that was found a few days ago? or is this another collaborative figure?
I know this is repeated like every page or so, but the Instagram post includes a Ford hashtag, which suggests the Jungle Explorer instead of the Jeep Wrangler.
Still could be what you suggested, but with the breakout scene instead.
That’d be a cool head sculpt. I was thinking something along that line, I mean they could repurpose the Ectotron Mold and make it into a Voyager-Sized Explorer with the roof bits from the Explorer swapped out. Also, they could use the Ectotron or Gigawatt Head Sculpts and make it look like those night vision goggles.
Hound's G1 toy was a Jeep J59.
I don't mind if we get a nicely decorated vehicle, heck to be honest I'd be fine with a whole motorpool of vehicles. Including the Dinosaur capture vehicles. But this collaboration line seems to stick to one toy per license.
Which is a shame as you could easily make an entire line out of Jurassic Park Transformers ; either a small line of vehicles, or a larger line of organic transforming dinos. Since there is an apatosaurus in Jurassic World - one can argue that you could make each of the 5 Main Dinobots in "Jurassic Park" Disguise as a rather nice project - to be honest I find the idea of trying to make Organic Dinosaurs turn into more mechanical looking Robots quite an interesting one and it would be different to how Beast Wars handled it or G1.
But I know that isn't what we'd get so I GUESS it's going to be Rexy or some sort of vehicle.
It’ll be a set of Rexy and a Jungle Explorer.
Rexy is a repaint/remold (unknown to which extent) and the Explorer will be a new mold. Pretty exciting! Hope they go nuts with the paint apps. Would be a shame if this set ends up as under-painted as Maverick.
I think it's kinda odd how they did such a poor representation of the weathering of the plane mode, It just looks like someone threw a bucket of slurry over it. and then they more or less forgot to paint the robot, I wouldn't suggest they try to do a Star Wars Transformers trick on it and try to make the robot look like the human - that would have been kinda horrible - but some paint on it really would have helped, even if it was just a little - take Jetfiire he's mostly white, but he has enough accent colours that he's not completely bland.
Here is a random thought though ; could they remould the JP Vehicle and Maverick into Gi Joe Transformers at some point ? Heck perhaps even expanse as well ?
Though If I had a choice of what Gi Joe Transformers toy they'd make it would be the Rise of Cobra "Movie" Steelcrusher APV as maybe they could do something like that surrounding the Snake Eyes Movie as any Normal Gi Joe they can do what they like when they like as there is no license involved.
Surely the 'Ford' hashtag in the tweet means that the vehicle is going to be an Explorer in the JP tour colours (likely a retool + repaint of the Trailbreaker mold)?
As a JP tie-in without a dino would just be weird, it's likely we'll also get a T-Rex to go alongside the vehicle - meaning we can recreate the T-Rex paddock scene from the movie.
Not to disparage other peoples speculations, but some of the suggestions I've seen on here are expensive. A repainted Leader class and a retooled Deluxe, I can see HasTak viewing as a viable seller for somewhere in the $70-$80 price range.
1 toy per license? Ectotron, MP-10G, and Ectotron (Afterlife) would beg to differ
They also wouldn't likely do something like turning the dinobots into crossover characters because thus far all of the collaborative figures (except MP-10G) have been new characters for each franchise
