    I'd be okay with a new Seeker mold. But some people are talking about another Sideswipe, and I feel that re-doing any post-MP-10 figure is a slippery slope.

    Yup, only three new molds this year (I have a feeling Dinobot will not be this year). TT has to pick up the pace if they want to squeeze in new G1's, G1 re-dos, and BW's.

    Ι believe we still have many more Optimus and Megatron reinditions to see in the Mp line, along side a few characters that desperately need a lift. I only hope it wont signify another change in aesthetics and overall design (scale for example). All the current molds can still stand side by side, even if there are minor differences.

    Seems legit.

    This would never happen, but how awesome would it be if MP Jazz could play that same ridiculous guitar solo that was used over and over again in S1 and S2?

    And then have Blaster with his equally annoying one? I would buy them both for the shake of ripping the electronics out.

    Or you could save your money and not buy them, leaving them for those of us who would want them. o_O

    Hell to the yeah. They could throw in a transformation sound effect and that sound when he used his speakers as weapons. Doubt it would happen but I actually like that stuff on Megatron (just hate the pew pew sound effect).

    I can see Grimlock, and maybe a new Rodimus, but past those two, I'd much, much rather they focus on characters who've not yet had the MP treatment, and circle back around down the road a decade if they must. The whole line will probably have shifted again by then anyway.

    I feel the only MP that should have had sounds was Shockwave with his original laser sounds, sadly that didn't happen.

    I really do think we'll get a new Grimlock, but I doubt any other reboots will come our way. Of course, this is only opinion informed by nothing, and I would buy a new Roddy and Optimus, but man, new seekers would kill me. They are imperfect, but since I've gone in on all of them, I feel I've already invested too much. I wonder how many would really be keen on that (of course, it seems I could well be wrong).

    I will never collect a bunch of new seekers. It just flat out won't happen. I'd really like a new Rodimus Prime that didn't try to build Hot Rod in there too.

    Realistically, I can't turn down a toon MP. I 100% would by Optimus 3.0, Grimlock 2.0, Starscream 2.0 (depending on how you found the 1st edit), etc.

    On some small level, I'd be frustrated if it significantly postponed things like Jazz or Hound, but if they were delivered as well as Inferno and Megatron, I'd be plenty happy. I'm not just in it to have really good versions...for me, I want the best versions I can (ie, match my personal collecting preferences best) and redone versions of some characters would 100% be added.

    I completely understand why people wouldn't want them or would be very annoyed by them, too...i guess I just see way more positive.

    Well yeah, that's my point. They're "big enough". But adult, high-end collector's toys are still a bit of a niche market, compared to mainline Transformers series, or Star Wars, or whatever else you see clogging the shelves at Walmart and TRU.

    I'm just saying, it's almost certainly not as big a money maker as *some* - not all - here are making it out to be. They're not selling these to the masses - we are a relatively small, elite group of discerning collectors, after all! ;)
