    Haha, same here! But in a fraction of a second I realized that there's no way they'll make that figure now and that there's a G1 Inferno. Who I don't care about, so easy pass.

    On the TT mall website for MP-14+ at the very bottom you'll find that image, does that confirm this is not a hoax?

    Seeeeriously hoping this is a thing. I love the look of MT's, but I think Takara will end up the best of all the options.

    Well, it's certainly an official image. Whether or not it is a MP Inferno is still uncertain (likely, but uncertain)

    The text above the image on TTMall says: (google translated)
    !! Trying to reproduce the Masterpiece and scenes scheduled to be released this winter

    Can't tell what the text in the image says just yet.

    Oooooo... Please be real!

    Masterpiece Inferno would also mean a Masterpiece Grapple down the line as well.

    It makes perfect sense Takara would mainly go for the characters that have remold possibilities more often than the ones that only have alternate possibilities due to Diaclone or something.

    Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen
    Sideswipe/Red Alert
    Starscream/Thundercracker/Skywarp/Ramjet
    Ironhide/Ratchet

    Now if they would only get to Jazz, they could do Ricochet.

    see this is why I'm staying clear of 3rd party mp toys. it happened with soundwave, shockwave the cone heads and now surprisingly inferno. Hasbro/takara is clearly taking note.

    Masterpiece Artfire.. After all these years, could it finally be happening? Nearly too late, but I'd still get that MP to go with my Generations and custom PCC Artfires.

    This is a pretty if it holds true. Hopefully they can pull off a really great mold since they aren't beholden to any licensers.

    That said...it isn't Jazz, so I feel a twinge of disappointment.

    I guess this explains Red Alert's reissue under the Plus sub-line.

    I was thinking of giving the new Red Alert a miss but the thought of having him alongside MP Inferno is just too tempting.

    This is fantastic.

    Can't wait for Artfire and Grapple as well.

    Official MPs haven't been that great lately. Also, after the repeated paint problems on blue Bluestreak I don't trust them to make a purchase from them anymore.

    Man I'm taking this with a huge grain of salt...but that text is promising. MP Inferno is what probably instigated the MP + line. They looked at MP-14 and said this won't do.

    Edit: Ninja'd by Type-R.

    If it's decently articulated (ie: the legs can go beyond a sumo-squat and has a waist joint) I'll be in for this. Neither of the 3P options did it for me this time around.

    This works out perfectly since I'll take MMC Inferno at the great price then wait for TT Grapple. Very excited, I hope TT does these trucks justice!

    Could simply be an accessory for MP-14+... "We have raped the Lambor mold so much, that it is unable to stand unaided."

    Well that's a curveball.
    Very well timed by Takara again. Can't wait to see how this plays out.
