    I hate the character, but I really love the Rodimus and Hot Rod toys. A Rodimus Prime V2 would be so freaking amazing. Galvatron would be awesome too.

    But, in terms of all-encompassing joy? MP Devastator or Super Ginrai.

    I'd love to get a MP Galvatron. I've always been tempted by FT Sovereign, but just know that as soon as I buy him TT will go and announce the official version.

    I'd also like to see a V2 Ultra Magnus, but wont hold my breath. As much as I like MP22 he is severely let down by lack of articulation. Though I do appreciate how difficult it would be to do anything more with a figure like Magnus.

    Definitely think we need a jazz. Don't know if it would top prime and megs, but it would tie for sure.

    Never thought of Galvatron but that would be something! I am not a fan of these 3rd party options and I know that if TT made it, it would be show accurate to the max so that would be probably the best. MP44 tops it at the moment but honestly, Galvatron would be equal.

    Is there a full translation of this? Pretty exciting stuff that it won high end toy of the year before it’s even released!!!

    Is it only MP44 that won the prize or TT?

    Even if it’s difficult to believe, this figure will be even more amazing than what i thought!

    In a spiral of love for TT I completely cracked up and preordered a copy the other night.
    This picture really did it for me. There are some great 3p options for sure, but for me mp-44 has more life into it. I loved the video with the ratchet noises too ha ha

    Their momentum is crazy this year and I'm pretty much excited by all of their releases. Can't wait !

    You've summed it up nicely for me there. The 3p options are nice, but this has just always had that certain something to it that just makes it more Prime than the others.

    I'm supposed to be holding out to get my copy for xmas but I dont think I can. I've waited long enough damn it!

    Agreed! While I have one of those 3Ps (since I don't have MP-10) it just doesn't satisfy me as much as the sight of MP-44. Hard to believe there's less than three months left! I still need to get in my PO though, fortunately there's still plenty of time. And yeah, big year for TT releases. A lot to be excited about, not so much for our wallets though. :D

    Seeing the detail on mp Hound’s Jeep console, I’m wondering if Prime’s matrix chamber will be painted up for the final release. This didn’t seem to be the case in some of the promo shots:
    upload_2019-6-14_18-31-35.jpeg
    But in the recent photos it looks like there’s some color through that windshield...although what I’m seeing could just be the shine of a pin or something:
    upload_2019-6-14_18-32-23.jpeg
    If his chamber isn’t painted I might have to give TE-01 credit where credit is due, but this prime does still have that special something either way.

    I really hope the Matrix chamber is painted and detailed up but I’m going to assume it won’t be.

    Always welcome my friend, thanks!

    There’s something about seeing him from that distance...he looks really good! I love that cab in this shot. And Prime in bot mode looks a lot more like a cartoon here than usual. Must be closer to what we’ll see when he’s in hand, rather than looking at digitally enlarged images on our monitors.
