    Same here. Well... I do collect some other MP's but am mainly in it for the Diaclone carbot variants.

    Riggorus uses 95% of Hoist’s mold. Just a new head, canopy and door windows w/roof bits. There are no Trailbreaker parts at all in the figure, other than those already shared with Hoist, of course.

    I was thinking the same thing… :( 

    I imagine I'm in the minority, but man oh man do I hope TT gives us Deep Cover out of the MP-12 mold before it gets retired... Personally, I still love the mold and, even with the pin-head, I think it looks great on my shelf with the newer bots. It'd bother me tremendously if they made a new Lambor mold without getting Deep Cover released first. Maybe they could do Deep Cover as a final use of the mold, kinda like they did with MP-1L??

    And black MP-27 Ironhide seems like a no-brainer, but speculation says we might be getting this one soon in the newly unified MPG line?

    [​IMG]

    Lift Ticket and “blue Hoist” (who I don’t think has an official name?) are both on the table now.

    As is Breaker.

    And to add to the list, I’d take a blue MP-21 Bumblebee mold as Glyph (sorry, I don't care for the MP-45 mold so I'd prefer Glyph to be the MP-21 mold).

    [​IMG]

    And green and white MP-51 Arcee mold as a Paradron medic (aka Lifeline) while we’re at it.

    [​IMG]

    And the final version of the MP-53 Skids mold in red with a red head?

    And of course MP-47 Hound re-released with better plastic and recolored into Detritus?

    [​IMG]

    Sorry this kinda turned into a wish-list post, but it seems like there's some great re-colors that could easily fill in some release gaps!

    Riggorus' design is 95% the same as Hoist, not Trailbreaker. There are only some minor unique changes for the rear canopy and shoulder launchers.

    I had no idea MP Trailbreaker and Hoist were so different.

    I, uh… Well…

    But yeah, you caught me… In my defense, I think it was relevant to the conversation and I added the repaints of the Trailbreaker and Hoist molds to the list. Anyway, I know I’m not the first to make the same post in more than one thread. ;)

    I just translated the instructions for myself and it says "he", except for the last two lines and tfwiki mentions Riggorus as being male as well. Is there any consensus or reasoning for the translations being different?

    Japanese rarely uses pronouns. @lord ginrai might have mentioned this earlier in the thread he's much better at Japanese than me.

    Picked him up from a local toy shop recently. Not bad at all. Looks great, transformed well(except those shoulders gave me a little grief). Fun all around. IMG_3980.jpeg IMG_3982.jpeg IMG_3983.jpeg IMG_3984.jpeg

    Just a translation mistake. Someone did a machine translation of the Chinese bio and it accidentally translated one bit as "she." Riggorus is male.

    Yeah, I actually got the same thing. He throughout, then "she" at the end:

    Yeah it's just the translation software trying to insert a pronoun into a sentence where there is none:

    I still misread this character's name as RickandMortis. Anyone else?
