    If he is in fact a MP52xx, I would assume he’ll be MP52T or TC. Although, if they do use the +, that could mean Skywarp will get his own number.
    Which just messes with my preferences in regards to MP numbering, although I really should be getting it used to after that past few years of strange MP numbering decisions.

    Not sure, but searches for MP-52TC and MP-52T bring no results.

    They've started rolling the reveals out at 30 minute intervals.
    Thundercracker will probably be last..

    Edit: All Kingdom figures are already visible on the TT Mall website.
    Thundercracker's listing is still hidden but as was said before he'll be MP-52something.

    Here's the TT Mall search results for Thundercracker:

    If it really is MP-52+ then I don’t know what to think. That makes no sense.

    Will TT Mall still ship to the US if it is an exclusive? If not where else can US buyers pre-order? I thought I got my MP-18+ from TTMall but maybe I'm remembering wrong.

    TakaraTomy Mall has never shipped to the USA. You will need a forwarding service, but it will be very likely purchasing from a local retailer will be much cheaper.

    They can be be all over, Prime went live early in the morning, might have been 3 or 4 in the morning when official pics went live.

    They just tweeted the Kingdom Airazor reveal, but the product listing has been visible for at least ten minutes or so. So...this observation doesn't help anything :lol

    hehe yeah, Thundercracker seems to be the only one they're strictly keeping under wraps until the Twitter reveal.
    SUSPENCE!!

    If he gets revealed last, it'll take another 2.5 hours.
    Go watch a movie or something guys! :p

    BBTS, TFSource and TCP stock TT-Mall exclusive MPs regularly, so i'd say keep an eye on them throughout today and tomorrow if you can't go from TT-Mall with a forwarding service.

    I'm not sure the numbering has ever made sense to be honest, so I don't expect this to be any different.

    I agree, but to me it’s next level weird. But Spinout ended up being 39+ so it’s possible for sure. I’m just assuming that if they use + there will only be one repaint for that number. Meaning Skywarp doesn’t get done at all or he will have a unique accessory or something and he will get a new number. Who knows?

    You don't want to assume with Takara. The last time people were so sure about the rules for MP numbering they threw everyone into a loop and introduced the concept of "+", next thing you know they'll put out a MP-52 Skywarp and it will be a "++" release or something really weird.
