    I call for an MP Galvatron or Scourge to go along with Cliffjumper as they also stirred the pot with Nightbird. That MP random announcement threw me for a joyous loop. So far 6 MPs reserved from here til March and ready to see what comes next.

    Considering there were never KOs of Bee 45 I highly doubt it. There were factory rejects and self assembled pieces from employees working off the clock though. I owned Bee 45 a few months before it was released. Lots of those same crappliy put together pieces were out there. I'm sure the thieves will have their way with CJ too sadly.

    I always wonder do they have the same problems on this level with the diaclone line? Just seems strange their MP line is the only toy line really targeted like this.

    The diaclone line was KOed early on with a series called Lost Planet. That has completely stopped as of about 2-3 years ago. There are zero Diaclone Reboot KOs or 3P products floating around out there. There's some add-ons being made like highly detailed magnetic stickers for existing pieces, or some people with 3D printers are making some stuff, but nothing else. Really weird now there's zero KOs of any of that line happening. Maybe the Diaclone crowd spends a lot of money, and doesn't want to support the cheap stuff? I assume some of the poorer fans may have wanted to dip their toes in the line early on and bought the KOs only to stop supporting any of it. But lots of TF fans want the MP stuff for Walmart prices, so they'll keep supporting the KO market. Or maybe they're getting bored of the MP toon only direction as well? Lots of people that were KO only are getting out of the hobby, or they just buy the one figure out of every 10 releases. Hopefully the profits for KOs plummet and end all together :)

    So far it looks like very similar engineering, but maybe stacks up a bit cleaner on account of being a less rounded car. MP-45's backpack never bothered me though - fantastic fun figure.

    Dear Takara,
    We all know an MP CJ is incoming. The anticipation and excitement for the Official announcement has reached epic proportions. What would elevate this to uncharted levels beyond epic? A surprise announcement of G1's most jazzy character. Just sayin'. ;)

    The feet and backpack could use a fixing since they do look like a jigsaw puzzle. But me personally, it didn’t look bad in person as I thought. Overall, the transformation is fun and the vehicle mode is amazing. Backpacks like the ones on MP-52 Starscream and Sunstreaker can give hope that the Cliffjumper backpack won’t be bad in hand.

    You sure? I'm 99.9% positive I bought a boxed mp45 ko for my Cliffjumper custom.

    Edit - yup:

    A piece on the backpack was assembled upside down or backwards, I believe.

    In my experience, a bit looser in the hips. That's it from what I can remember.

    Are we thinking CJ will release before Skyfire? We’ve at least had a couple of test shots show up of CJ and that Skyfire prototype has MP-10 next to it which could mean it’s an older design and being refined. There was also the leak that MP-49 was supposed to be CJ. I think he’ll be first.

    I agree and I think CJ will be first, but it's taking so long to get the TT reveal my paranoia is kicking in hard and convincing me that this figure was canceled. I keep saying crazy stuff like this because I want the Transformers Gods to prove me wrong. Isn't there a Figure King coming this week or next? *crosses fingers*
