    No Targetmaster for Perceptor? Maybe that means he'll have the Shuffler vehicle? And Octane will have Fangry?

    Yay, Slugslinger. That completes the trio. I have high hopes for this one, he should get a new facesculpt.

    EDIT: WAIT WAIT WAIT, AN MP-10B REISSUE? WHAT?! YES!!!

    Wonder who "Spike" is. Possibly the Hasbro titanmaster from Cerebros/Fort Max?

    Soooooo happy for the MP-10B reissue. Always wanted him but wasn't going to pay stupid eBay prices. Also if I recall correctly from his bio, he's a different Black Convoy from the Car Robots character.

    What about Blitzwing? Surely he has to be coming as well.

    Slugslinger will be preordered.
    Wonder who Fracas will come with if not Perceptor.
    I was hoping for Overlord, but that was a bit optimistic i guess :)

    I'm guessing this is the last Targetmasters. 3 Autobots, 3 Decepticons.

    Ohhhhhhhhhh MP-10B!!!!

    Hopefully it's a regular release and at original MSRP or close to it. Sold mine a long time ago and have since hoped for a re-release. Sweeeeeet!

    Just like in Japanese G1. Just the Autobots are different characters this time.

    We can only hope. If it's $120 or less, that will work. If they try to do $160 or something, it really won't be much better than Ebay prices.

    I think the last batch of reissues had the original MSRP so this one might have it too.

    Correct, here's the full bio translated by Soundwaves Oblivion:

    Translated Tech Specs: Transformers Masterpiece

    MP-10B Destron Unicronian Herald / Black Convoy
    Function: Unicronian Herald
    Motto: “Demise is the destiny of all life forms.”
    Profile:
    A clone of Convoy has been created by Unicron. A formidable fighting force, destruction is an urge arising from the depths of its being. Launches attacks throughout the cosmos against Transformers making no distinction between Cybertron or Destron. His destructive power on the battleground is dedicated to the resurrection of his Lord. He follows the will of Unicron; a personification of his evil.

    ebay prices are mostly $220 and up so even $160 wouldn't be 'that' bad. I can see them charging a bit more than original price, but if it's a regular release we can take advantage of the 30% of discounts offered by Japanese stores. I'm feeling good that it will be closer to the $100-$120 shipped price point, but who knows. We'll find out soon enough.

    If it is down in the $100-$120 range, I would definitely be happy. I paseed it up the first time, and have been upset ever since :)
