    I'd love to see G2 Megatron but it seems for the foreseeable future Takara is not interested in creating new molds that aren't based on an animation model. (Which gives me the sickening thought that G2 does have the primitive early 90s commercial CG animation...)

    You know, I never really thought about this, but consider the outlay of $$$ as being the rate limiting step in the release of MPs.

    MP-44 was a lot of money. Most people would not drop that twice or three times a year. To have another $300 USD+ MP in such a short period of time might tap out all but the deepest pockets. It's basically iPhone money every single year.

    I'd like to avoid paying MP-44 prices moving forward. I really hope those big releases are spaced out substantially and that we can get them back under $300. Beast Wars Megs was under $300 on AMJ, right, or am I not remembering correctly?

    TT is never late, nor are they ever early.
    They arrive with new MPs precisely when they mean to.
    :D

    it could be anybody but Starscreams rumor is too outdated to be substantial and Ratchet's not until Janurary.

    That's all I gather unless someone has a better insight to share.

    Yeeaaaaaahhhh, nah.

    They’ll never do that many BW (or Ark crew) in a row with no group variance or repaints.

    Also, Takara did say they want to do the first season of BW, and haven’t ever said anything about Transmetals or Fuzors. Doesn’t mean they won’t, but it’s a pretty long shot.

    Wonder if Takara people will may an appearance at NYCC this year because of Unicron. Wonder if CJ made that leaked listing because they plan on revealing him there.

    Sunstreaker reissue for May. Does this mean we will see a Sideswipe 2.0?
