    because hes done so bad with the mp line? its not a demotion they put their best designer in charge to try to improve the movie toys. id guess hasui san isnt ecstatic over the change but by no means does it seem like a "demotion."

    Althoug I like Hasui's work on the MP line, he has been pretty busy working on 4 excellent autobot molds with real worls alt modes (lambo, datsun, lancia stratos, vw bug). Hopefully switching him over to another line will prevent him from getting burnt out on MPs and maybe come back to the MP line later with a fresh set of eyes.

    Have you seen the Lego movie?

    Thanks for the clarification. I hope his (and my) wishes come true!

    If he has fresh eyes, his vision might change. Right now, I wish he would continue with the line. He has obviously tried very hard to keep everything in scale and consistent.

    And that there is why he is a master toy designer.

    I hope the difficulty designing the transformation doesn't become an issue when trying to transform Wheeljack and there is little room to move parts.

    Nice interview. I smell a Devastator coming in the near future. I love how he says 'if I get another chance', he's practically begging Takara Tomy to put him back on the line.

    While I actually like it, I'd like to see him take a stab at Masterpiece Megatron.

    YEAH, I SAID IT!!! Form a line, I'll take y'all one at a time!

    It's good to know that an MP Combiner may finally become a reality someday.

    a single use? really? :D  If MP-18B proven to be blue in color, then bought & will bought MP-20M Marlboor...

    Tho I do prefer the G1-toy head instead of the G1-toon head, but that's just me :D  maybe somebody can make G1-toy accurate head

    p/s: yeah some word written on the Net is much more interesting than movie trailer ... hmm...

    I know he wants to do Bruticus, but is there any way they don't start with Devastator? Just can't see anyone else leading the excursion into Combiners if it happens.

    I hope they stick with the original toy green, not the encore 20a yellow/green.

    Such a great interview... makes me excited to see where the masterpiece line goes from here. At the same time I can't help feeling a little sad that he even needs to say 'If I have an opportunity to develop Masterpiece figures again, I hope to be working on a steady growing series' - He's done such an amazing job with everything since MP10 it should just be a given!
