    Yeah it looks like that was just an early setup photo, and today is press/media day, and now it really starts tomorrow Japan time (tonight for most of us).

    So there "maybe" a shot of a reveal tonight! I can't recall Takara ever doing this event in recent years. It would be kinda good timing with the next figure magazine releasing on the 25th right? Perhaps this is a good segue for it.

    I'm not getting my hopes up but it would be awesome! Their presence (particularly MP) is much larger here than I would have expected. It looks like they maybe showed TF stuff at this show back in 2011? I found some old threads about it. But not in recent years, and never MP as far as I know. Also this seems to be a LONG show, lasts till Nov 4 I think.

    What's weird is, they don't have the Fusos on display. Maybe since the show is so long, they'll switch stuff out. But I'd think any licensed MP or Studio Series figure would be getting prominent display here.

    Don't think we have ever seen them all together, except maybe the Generations book , they seem to focus on the 84-85 bots with their displays, for now anyway.

    Takara, when I said I would buy multiple Masterpiece Jazz, I meant the MPs and NOT MPMs.
    Damn you and that silver paint :throw

    Totally random thought but if Porche actually gave the green light, what if we get a Jazz and Deadend double reveal? They might as well strike while the iron is hot!

    A Headmaster? No thank you.
    Never liked that series. I thought it defeated the whole idea of giant sentient beings.
    Plus, it was just creepy. :confused:  :peoples: 

    I'm still convinced CJ, Ligier and Meister are in the immediate future.

    IF Porsche came on board and there was a double reveal, it would WAY more likely be Jazz and Cliffjumper. Porsche is only one of the hurdles for MP Stunticons...you still have Ferrari and Tyrell...not to mention get all 4 companies (5 if MM were licensed too) to agree their licensed product can combine with competitor products.

    I admittedly haven't keep up on every licensing issue lately, but has there been any evidence to point otherwise to a hard no from all of those companies either? I only say this because of how Takara got Lamborghini on board with Sunstreaker. Again these are me basically musing right now, but I don't remember any hard evidence towards a no from them either.

    Ferrari has had various exclusive licenses with different companies for years. Where they currently stand, I dunno. I don't know how difficult Tyrrell is or isn't. But stacking multiple ridiculously tough individual licenses, the fact the Stunticons are bad guys (licensors might not want their products being depicted as evil villains...and there probably wouldn't be good guy repaint options,) and you have to get all the companies to agree to their product directly interacting with a competitor's in order to function, I just think the Stunticons are next to impossible to have ALL those challenges come together if licensing is a requirement.

    Well Tyrrell haven’t existed since 1998, so I imagine it’s pretty hard to get any sort of reply from them...

    It may be that the rights to manufacture replicas of their old cars reside with Mercedes-Benz, since they bought the team who bought the team who bought the team who bought Tyrrell out, but there’s no certainty.

    I could kinda see the argument about them interacting with competitors, however if the bottom line is money at the end of the day I am pretty sure that would win out. There hasn't really been an update to what the situation is currently about these licenses and I wonder what is up with them currently.

    It would be nice to remove or definitely prove some of the near mythic circumstances behind these licenses. I include Cliffjumper and Mirage in this as well, as I'm sure other folks do too.

    No my friend, Raiden is not a Headmaster

    Ok, he appeared in that show, but he is a combiner with trains as members and the members are traditional Transformers ;)

    Damn, I want a better angle of that pic of Hound’s and Wheeljack’s alt modes to get a better look at how Hound scales with the other cars. He doesn’t look as big as FansToys Willis did in alt mode, but I’d still like to get a better view.
