    Interesting.

    I already have the Maketoys version and absolutely love it: the finish, the quality, the look -- for some reason that is how I see Inferno. I'm much happier with the Maketoys MP than I've been with MP Tracks, Hot Rod or Shockwave. So unless TT really surprises me, but else I'll be sticking very happily with the MT version.


    But this is great news for those who are official only or didn't care for the 3P offerings. And especially those who feared a G1 drought after Ratchet.

    I love Inferno, getting an MP version would be awesome! Looking forward to seeing more pics. My guess is that if the teaser is coming out now then we can probably expect a release within the next six months or so.

    Great news for those that want it. Easy pass for me, another nobody. At least it should put pay to some of the more hyperbolic statements such as 'the Plus line means the end is nigh', 'they better not let Beast Wars moulds take G1 slots!' etc etc

    The MMC one does seem like a nice bit of work though so at least you'll be getting something cool regardless.

    Where does this put all the various 'My Uncle Works At Takara's Neighbour's Gas Station' types making MP predictions, did one of them say Inferno was coming up so we know to listen to them and ignore the other muppets?

    I'd say it's pencilled in for November, with another MP for December. They do it every year. Grapple early 2017.

    Quoted for truth. MP + line was always a sign that the line will be expanding in a big way.

    That was refreshing to read. I am so used to people taking a metaphorical dump over each other's favourite figures :thumb

    If it is Mp Inferno, then he looks pretty small. And I would pass on him. At the moment I got my sights on X-Transbots version as he is about Primes height. Which to me is more in scale.

    It does, indeed , I feel it is the first carbot which nails the TT aesthetic perfectly, had this not been announced I almost would have definitely got it, it's a mighty fine figure.

    I think the MP-22 onwards has proven that. Expanding away from the regular MP 'size classes', no more MP-10 size or carbot size, we now have figures coming out above, below and between those sizes. No more licence releases only, Hotrod proves we can do carbots without licensing. No more G1 season 1-2 only Magnus and Hotrod are here. Annnnd...most exciting to me no more G1 only, i have my fingers crossed Primal is not a one off. My only concern is that this expansion might be coupled with a drop in quality...only time will tell on that but the chrome issues on Hotrod and Ironhide and lack of finish on Shockwave have me concerned.

    Two things that I love are 1) Another buddy pair is complete, and 2) season 2! So great that we'll have Inferno, Red Alert, Tracks, Smokescreen, and Ramjet to nicely fill out a s2 shelf. Grapple, Dirge, and Thrust can't be far behind!

    After preferring Quakeblast to Laserwave, I've decided that for me personally, official and toon accuracy isn't quite for me. So I'll wait and see what this looks like. I've been leaning towards the MMC Inferno and I still am really.

    I'm quite blown away by having all these great options nowadays. So cool! There's pretty much something for every style of collection now. :)

    ^ lol, I'd be down for that. :) 

    Or maybe it's just Takara releasing Transformers characters.

    So, could be Ironhide's height or even a little shorter?

    The Japanese text says:

    "With the new Masterpiece planned for this Winter, you can recreate every scene!!"

    So yeah, planned for this Winter (2016? Not clear), Inferno baby.

    *waits for Yuki's official tweet any minute now :lol "
