    Devastator would be great but I also want a MP Menasor. Those vehicles would look so nice.

    This doesn't mean the line is going anywhere - that sort of "We will continue to do our best!" or "Please support the line!" talk is basically boilerplate with Japanese designer interviews, isn't it? Like, it's weirder to have an interview where they DON'T end it with some kind of vaguely self-abasing comment about putting forth more effort next time. It's just a Japanese cultural thing.

    If they want more Decepticons an obvious choice in the mean time would be a Takara Skywarp and Thundercracker based on the MP11 mold.

    If they were to do MP Menasor how do you think they'd do it?
    ...as a set or individually, or both?

    Do you think they'd make MMs truck mode to scale with MP10?

    ...he'd be huge in bot mode.

    Bruticus would have vehicles that are way out of scale with each other. Menasor and Devastator would likely be fine.

    Same here, I just don't see any of the series 2 combiners beating out Devastator. Plus I'm sure that engineering has advanced to the point where it shouldn't be too hard to produce. I'm still wondering if we will get hit with a monster-sized giftset of will they be broken up into seperate releases?

    He has been talking about MP combiners for years, sure hope that eventually G1 combiners will get Masterpiece treatment

    Can you even imagine how much an MP gestalt would cost? Devestator would be six MP figures, we're talking 200 to 300 bucks!

    probably 80 a fig so more like 450-500, if anything they should do it as a collector club subscription like the MC voltron. get a bot every other month end of the year form devestator... maybe could even have a lower price point if you subscribe.

    I don't get where the conversation turned to combiners, when nothing was mentioned about them, the whole conversation focused on Wheeljack....with some info on a couple other aspects, nothing about combiners though.

    He did mention combiners in his last statement of the interview and he's mentioned combiners in the past as well, especially his favorite, Bruticus.

    So, he JUST says his "personal opinions". NOT official. NOT confirmation.

    Of course it's not confirmation. We're just speculating based on his comments. And since the MP line just switched designers, it would probably be years before Hasui got the chance to design any MP again, combiner or otherwise.

    None of which makes me any less hopeful that we do get combiners eventually, because an MP Bruticus would be FREAKING EPIC.

    I can imagine how costly it will be but i am sure a lot of MP collectors will love to see MP combiners in future,even if it is costly,cheers

    Well, the Constructicons are supposed to be smaller than Soundwave but larger than Autobot cars, with added combiner tech, so... about 10.000 yen ($100) each, for a total of $600? That's not too horrible considering the price of Giant/Hercules.
