    Ya, the scale chart certainly shows him coming up to around the top of Prime's chest which would put just about Ironhides height.

    Inferno will be a great character to add to the MP line, but I'll go in with the Grapple crew and will be looking forward more to that release of the mold

    That's our end of year release (likely delayed to January 2017) then.

    This is pretty sweet, but

    Yeah I'm kinda right there too. XTB's is the biggest one, and people were saying that alt mode was small. How small will TT's be? I guess we'll just have to wait and see. But I'm for sure down for one out of these two.

    :lolol 

    Oh man, I'd love a Masterpiece Inferno! I hadn't even realized that there were two 3rd party not-Inferno's on the way: seems like Takara really is trolling those guys.
    I do hope Inferno will be licensed as a Mitsubishi Fuso firetruck. If they get the Mitsubishi license, it'll make Hound a lot easier as well.

    Also: Grapple, Artfire and Hauler are excellent additional arguments for Takara to spend some time designing this...

    Given how I haven't been a huge fan of some of the recent Takara figures, I'll wait and see how this compares to the Xtransbots version, which was looking pretty good, albeit only a render.

    Oh really? Gotta go check that out.

    Either way, this will most likely be out way before Dante.

    Possibly true. But between the 3P and official, there are only a handful of season 1/2 characters left no one has hit yet.

    I unfortunately genuinely believe that Sunstreaker and the Porsches may not be happening because of licensing issues. If you knock those guys out it leaves very little left that no one has touched.

    I have no idea if Takara are planning on dipping into season 3 or not. Hot Rod is apparently a very popular character in Japan (probaly why he has 2 MP's now) and Ultra Magnus always seems to happen, so eventually they had to make a real toy of him.

    We'll see if they ever get serious about season 3.

    I'm curious if I'll like this better than the 3P versions or not. So far I think it's just been Shockwave where takara and 3P went head to head and for me on that one Quakeblast was the hands down winner.

    I like Maketoys version quite a bit, but I have so little connection to the character that I've passed on him so far.

    Eh, while it's neat to have an official one, Backdraft looks way too good for me to cancel that preorder. Especially after the amazing precedent set by Sphinx.

    Problem with season 3 and beyond is most of the alt modes are cybertronian, which could either work against TT or for them, as there wouldn't be any licensed car brands to worry about, but that may upset the market for people who focus on collecting official car/tf models.

    His hoses are right out of the cartoon. If so I am keeping MT Inferno and also might be getting this. I don't really dig how he looks in the cartoon, but fingers crossed that he looks good anyways.

    Why? Not everybody likes the same thing. Just cuz its official doesn't mean it's the best thing ever. Look at the robot modes of Hot Rod, Tracks, Ratchet and Ironhide, not a fan of any of those imo.

    I am looking at them. They're fucking awesome (though Hot Rod is my least favorite of the ones mentioned). A lot of 3P stuff looks great, but the TT guys are the superior artists/designers/engineers.
