    Dare I ask if you will have any plans on making soundwave, megatron(both wfc and foc) shockwave and/or other transformers? Your designs of the previous releases are very genius and everything else is cool, hopefully you will answer my question.

    Because we need yet another Optimus or Megatrono_O . I can think of many other figures I'd rather have that haven't gotten great figures yet.

    Um. I would assume this is FOC Megatron to go with Jupiter, their FOC Optimus. Just like MT did a matched set of OptiMegs in their cross dimension line, like GC and GT are both doing matched IDW OptiMegs, like Spark Toys are doing a War Within Megs to go with their Alpha Pack War Within Optimus. TW will have Ox megs to go with their OxOptimus Primorion. There's a whole bunch of companies who have been doing matched OptiMegs pairings to homage a whole range of designs, and they have almost universally been acclaimed by fans and successful in sales.
    But hey, YOU don't like this direction so let's make sure they trash all those successful products.:rolleyes:

    WFC with white color is cool
    And I hope he is in big voyager scale or small leader class. At least in same size with Planet X Vulcan.

    This would be pretty fucking nice. I need to see some pics on this. I just got their Optimus and it's pretty good.

    I think saying Megatron is "next" is a pretty misleading title for what PX actually said.

    The WFC design might be enough to get me to buy this and their OP (I am skipping non-Dinobots from PX so far). The FOC design would be okay, though.

    I'm OK with that... especially when PX stated that only Megatron "FROM THAT LIST" is planned. Doesn't mean they're done with FOC (I hope) in general, which is obviously great news.

    Hoping for FOC because that's the superior design.


    i don't really see PlanetX moving AWAY from the WfC/FoC aesthetic anytime soon. They've dug themselves an impressive niche in the market.


    sidebar- i would pay GOOD money for a PX version of FOC Bruticus. I think THEY could finally get it right...

    I hope it's the WFC design, because FOC Megatron's design sucked in my opinion. But given the design of their OP, they'll probably go with the latter.

    it's not like there's a lot of players in the FOC arena, and we know that's Planet X's wheelhouse. Don't really see this as a wasted effort.

    I don't mind people getting their figures, I'm just tired of them all being Optimus and Megatron variations. Between 3rd party and Has/Tak, I have almost as many Optimus and Megatron figures as I have other characters.
    I appreciate people want Foc megatron, but there are so many of these two so often now I'm getting sick of it and was expressing my opinion.

    I don't know that this necessarily means it's their next project, just that they're planning on doing one.

    Agreed. They only said it's "planned", they didn't say it's next. After Trypticon, it's more likely the next one will be an Autobot.
