    -I- wasn't complaining about the off-topic stuff. I was responding to those who were. The word "speculation" is much more broad than what is actually defined in the first post of this thread (and the posts I quoted earlier), I have no problem with what people were talking about.

    After 3234 pages, the thread has evolved and become all-encompassing in terms of speculation.

    You needlessly started a new thread. Move on.

    Yes
    Perhaps... so?
    I'm directly responding to what people are saying about it. Sorry for not ignoring the discussion.

    I can understand your ambivalence towards cartoon-accurate G1 combiners given TT's push towards cartoon accuracy of late:

    Given POTP has combiners in it, I don't think there's much chance of seeing MP combiners for the next 12-18 months.

    I'd love to see an "out of left field" move with a set of MP Omni-bots at some point.

    Why would there have been any news? The magazine isn't due for a couple of days, and there wasn't a show on the weekend.

    Just thought the Magazine was out because someone (Not saying who) said it was coming the 21st.

    They were wrong. Magazines ship based on a regular day of week 1-4, not by specific numerical date.

    I think Figure King comes out on the 3rd Wedsnesday or Thursday of the month.

    So it would depend on what random day it comes?

    No, their printing schedule. Read the post man, it's really simple.

    Don't get your hopes up though. It'll most likely be a Hot Rod spread.

    What I was thinking. It's going to be one of those I told you so moments to myself.

    That's hopeful thinking. Just don't know how it works.

    A dueling Hot Rods spread... MP40 vs MP40B! Can you picture it... Targetmaster AKOM Hot Rod aiming his gun across the double-page spread at Targetmaster Black Hot Rod, aiming his gun right back! (Yes, they both come with Firebolt, to punctuate Takara's assf*ckery of late.)*

    *Wild, baseless speculation, in case anybody gets too many feels

    After thinking about it, I'll take a mini insecticon as an accessory for any upcoming MPs. I'd display it with MP Sunstreaker, as his pet insecticon, Bob. :D 

    As for any new MP announcements; Since September is literally a week and a half away, I'd be surprised if we didn't get new MP news in the next few weeks.

    While I'd love for Jazz to finally be announced, my guesses for MP41 are:

    Blaster
    Hound
    Trailbreaker
    Dinobot

    Don't worry they will announce Jazz at 41 and ,everyone will forget about Hot Rod. Except for Beasties cause Blaster and Stepper are 42 and 43:p . And then they can tease Waspinator and we can do this all over again.
