    I'm jonesing for a new combiner so hard that I'm looking at the XTB Stunticons and TW Devestator but I don't have a MP collection.

    I’m wondering if they will arrive at all.

    I'm not. It's not like I've got super-secret inside information or anything, I just don't see any particular reason to think they won't, especially given how far into development the figures got.

    I selected the Constructicons because the Stunticons have clearly been delayed (by problems getting them to combine cleanly, supposedly). Since then Magic Square has definitely shifted focus to first season characters, so I suspect (completely made-up speculation here) that they have only so much time scheduled for each project, and their schedule laid out in advance; in which case, the Stunticons may have been bumped back to a (much) later project slot on that schedule because working them out was going to take too much time and delay subsequently scheduled stuff too much.

    I don't mind waiting; I'm in this for the long run, and don't particularly need all 45 first season Transformers right now (although yes, that would be very nice indeed :)  ).

    Magic Square has been slowing down with Legends recently. Release Wise, plenty showed off but no release dates, the stunticons have gone MIA. It's probably hard in perspective as Newage is dropping new figures monthly.

    They have to put out a few hundred more repaints of prime first.

    And not just at legends scale, either - they're still churning out variants of their masterpiece Prime.

    why do I have this feeling that everyone in the Magic Square office is laughing at us while they're playing with a full-coloured / final version of the Stunticons and the Constructicons?

    I have been waiting longer for MST Stunticons than the MST Constructicons, I prefer they bring out the Stunticons first.

    I'm starting to want NewAge to do the combiners just for the awesome accessories their figures get.

    As Newage is doing season 1 characters mostly and with two occassions showing the Constructicons, yes I know they where the DX9 ones, I wouldn't mind the Constructicons.

    It's not a popular opinion I know but I don't have the Constructicons yet and waiting for a better one.
