    I assume it comes in part due to the licensing arrangements required for these car models.

    Yeah, I have a theory that him and Optimus were in the ambush, Sam got killed while Optimus changed his form and arrived at the theater where AOE takes place afterwards.

    I hope its Ratchet, 1st full "day one" Autobot set in the entire MP line since it started. I might be convinced to buy them all.

    To anyone speculating this is anything bigger than Ratchet, we already know it'll be the same price as MPM Ironhide. There were two listings posted in the last few weeks showing both the US and UK pricing.

    Because people think we're going to get one because Bumblebee did, I'd rather they finish Bayformers first as I find the design to be boring and not modernizer the Optimus Prime design in any way shape or form.

    It's definitely Ratchet. We heard about this months ago from the same reliable leaker who reported Starscream and a bunch of mainline figures like Quintesson.

    All the comments about BB Optimus are just wish-listing. I'm sure we'll get one eventually, but not yet.
    I highly doubt any MPM Hot Rod would be better than DX9 La Hire; that's probably the figure you want. (And the one I'm waiting for them to re-release with a less derpy head. Car and bot mode are so awesome, but JEEZ, that head is a hate crime against good design aesthetics.)

    Holy Primus on a fragging pogo stick! Could Takara actually be ........dare I say it........completing a whole set of MPMs for a single movie!?
    :jawdropper: 

    On a serious note, pretty sure it's Ratchet.
    Now, if only Takara threw in a surprise new G1 MP announcement :cool:

    YES!!
    An MP Galvatron after their Arcee would really hit the spot! (I know, I know, they're going to troll us until 2050 at least with no MP Galvatron...)
    Since they posted that pic from Five Faces of Darkness of Arcee riding Springer on their Twitter yesterday though,
    an MP Springer would also be acceptable...

    Agreed. There are already so many third party BB Primes that I quit trying to follow them.

    Its obviously Ratchet, but I'd kill for a Jeep-mode Bumblebee masterpiece. My favorite movie Bee design, and a chance for Takara to make a Jeep MP that doesn't suck, in one figure.

    SAME. The appeal of a lot of the Bumblebee movie designs really didn’t last. Once you remove the rose colored glasses, it becomes apparant that the designs were too reliant on being live action G1 that it doesn’t have its own merit. I was so hyped in 2018 and now I really don’t care for the design aesthetic. Especially with the Cyberverse and WFC, it’s become so mundane and boring to see “G1 but with this twist” for 3 years straight. Arcee and Wheeljack were definite improvements over the Bayverse designs. And Shockwave and Starscream had great Bayverse and Bumblebee design. But I definelty prefer Ratchet and Ironhide’s Bayverse design (though Ratchet should really have been white and red) especially since they have completely different bodies and different alt modes. With the 2007 Optimus design, it is still clearly Optimus and who cares about the flat nose truck. I just don’t see the appeal of the Bumblebee 2018 designs anymore as it’s just surface level nostalgia bait while the Bayverse gave us more interesting designs. Sure some like Blackout and 2007 Megs are kibly messes, but Soundwave and Sideswipe are great designs that hold up for its own merit. Honestly, give the Bayverse characters more G1-esque heads and it’ll be distinct while being recognizable.
