    There’s plenty of photos in google of adults riding or near Jeeps, and no one looks as small as Spike. I think Spike’s head is too small compared to his body for him to be very young, either. But yeah, the point is he looks good enough riding it, and looks how he did in the toon. I just would’ve liked a slightly bigger Spike since maybe he would’ve had painted eyes like Artemis!

    Yeah particularly for Jazz, who I feel needs to be dynamic enough to pull off some break-dancing, the articulation will be so appreciated. I’m sure they’ll go back to redo Sideswipe, he and Sunstreaker both deserve to be able to pull off the heroics they’re famed for. To be honest until we do get a new Sideswipe my MP-39 will always feel incomplete ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I feel Sideswipe is the perfect candidate for a V2. The + version has a nice paint job and all, but these recent figures are really above and beyond the earlier figures. Hound wasn't really on my radar for characters I wanted, but this figure is pretty damn nice!

    Hound is my Best Figure of the Year. I can already tell.

    Whoever the next MPMs are in 2020, I hope both their quality and accuracy is in the same league as Hound and MP-44s.

    Neat. I was wondering if he might be able to use it but I guess it’ll be alright just in there.
    Man they really are.
    Man can you imagine if they did a Mirage or Jazz 5 years ago? They’d be nowhere near as good.

    Sideswipe DEMANDS a V2.

    It is also silly to think they (TT) won’t do one seeing how Sunny turned out.

    I mean no offense, but Vanilla Sideswipe is a relic by now. Still a nice toy.

    I mean I’m kinda fine with it since there’s some good alternatives to buy and if they did a new sideswipe this line would drag on for ages.

    I bet money we will see 1 revision, 2 pluses, and 1 arkbot mold a year from here on out.

    Triplechangers, combiners, and minibots don’t fit into my prediction so well though.

    That's two new molds and two repaints that's pretty reasonable. Not counting last year even that's been possible in the past.

    I wonder how the clear panel on his head will be handled; it looks like it can be replaced with a green colored piece somehow:

    Oh yeah that makes sense. But specifically 2 pluses, a revision and an Ark-bot? That’s too specific.

    I’ll bet you that when the screen is undeployed, the part of the panel that’s visible is painted green, and when the screen flips into place the green painted portion rotates away to reveal an unpainted part.

    Well yeah but there’s also the Beasties. And I’m not sure about the Soundwave since he’s getting a reissue.
