I'd be ok with that
I mean *I'M* more excited for Red Sunstreaker than I am a new mold.
All this hype is getting exciting. I think speculating about who is next is almost as fun as the reveal itself. I'm really excited to see the new Prime. As of right now, I have no plans to buy him. Maybe if he wows me and I can find a reasonable price (looking at you Amazon JP). But what really has me excited is the thought of a new carbot. I hope you guys are right about them sneaking a new bot in at 43. I would love to see Hound, Jazz, or Mirage. Or even minibots. Cliffjumper? Brawn? Those two especially deserve a good mp treatment
Reflector would be a hell yeah. An Insecticon(s) too, both being groups I'd not sell my third party versions so win/win as there were tonnes of clones.
It wasn't predictable, it was essentially spelt out. If it wasn't for the proto pics not one person here would have predicted it. Hoped? Absolutely but not predicted. We'd all still be talking about Blaster and Hound constantly.
Jazz is constantly hoped for and always dismissed. Hopefully it'll happen one day but personally I'm in no rush now with Downbeat on the shelf. When it happens, it happens. I'd much rather have a Mirage to replace the lacklustre Sphynx.
ive got my ticket right here Mr Evil Space Shuttle Locomotive Conductor...
I dont think any of those would sell well enough to warrant a general release. Only repaint I see being popular enough is red Sunstreaker, but himand Cordon back to back make no sense. That and it makes no sense to squeeze yet another repaint in , when the date for BW Megatron hasn't been decided.
You have some insider info?
No please god, no.
Why not? It's about time we finished the shuttle crew, now that we're getting Prowl+. We've got an in-scale Megatron whose cannon Brawn can wield. Brawn was quite prominent in the first few episodes, something I didn't realise before rewatching them all a couple of years back. Probably the most prominent minibot after Bumblebee, (maybe tied with Cliffjumper). Plus he was on the scale chart that was posted with a Hasui interview years back:
watch mp-43 be prime V3. i don't know why he'd "skip the line" except maybe 4 isn' t a lucky in both japan (where takara is from) and china (where the toys are made and likely the 2nd or maybe biggest market for mp toys) as it sounds like death. double death might be appropriate for bad guy like BW megatron but not prime. i really want it to be jazz because downbeat's alt mode is not great. i really don't want it to be blaster because i haven't sold transistor yet. lol. i'll be happy with just V3 prime though for now. still jazz would be awesome. reflector would be great. astrotrain would REALLY surprise me but i'd be happy too. of course it could just be a repaint/redeco guy too. surprise nobody guessing trailbreaker as he always comes up too.
Yeah, except last year there was no reason to believe there was a reveal coming. They’ve been teasing a new Optimus for months. Heck, he might be 43 for all we know.
Getting excited about totally unsubstantiated rumours gets your heart broken, getting excited about a slow, steady buildup to an event that already clearly is showcasing the character who’s been teased is a lot different.
I know, but i just HATE brawn with a passion.
As kid i hated how he made the decepticon looking like weaks. (cause after all, i liked the decepticons in general more than the autobots)
Fair enough. My only memory of Brawn as a kid was from the first three-parter, cutting out Huffer from that fence in the water. Love that scene, and I'd love the pair of them.
I think 42 and 24 are supposed to be unlucky in Japan. 4 and 7 go by another name because the real name is considered unlucky
Ninja’d like a muhfucka.
Maybe Beast Wars Megatron is MP-43 and MP-44
Okay I know Rubber Ducky isn't really Season 1...but what if Rubber Ducky were 43 and Megs 44?
Hah! I saw we jumped two pages in a couple hours and figured there must have been a reveal!
Watch MP43 end up being Bumblebee 2.0
