    I'm kinda thinking it may be the opposite. Hound and Bumblebee are coming at the very end of the year here, and we might get another figure or two. Then back to non-G1 things :/

    For MPMs; More like one or two reveals in Janurary and then it's back to stasis lock for the rest of the year since hasbro/takara too lazy to do more.

    While they do have their market, I doubt MPMs rank high on Takara's must do list.

    Aren't MPMs suppose to be it's own running line with no setbacks from G1s (which is all takaras thing)???

    I thought it was co-branded by both companies unless hasbro's just in it for distribution.

    At least it's a break to the wallet.

    Wake me up when Galvatron gets announced. He's gonna be pricey I bet.

    Hasbro probably gets a better return with Studio Series and Takara market skews more high end. Why eould euther invest heavily in MPMs when the both most likely have more profitable options

    If Raiden is finally a CHUG toy, could be at least a titan class, please ? :D 

    I hope the MP-50 will be a very great character or a very great surprise from G1

    It's funny cause as the years have gone by it seems the unpredictability of the MP line keeps growing. I appreciate any insider info that comes along, but there hasn't been much as of late unfortunately. :(  I really do think that we should hear something before years end. Plus the Generations 2020 book just got announced so maybe there is something on the horizon.

    Because when Studio Series is over with; I would anticipate that line being the focal point since bay/knightverse is well loved and adored by many.

    Between Starscream and Soundwave redo’s and repaints of Bee and Prime, they will be busy for quite some time.

    I feel it’s going to be awhile before we see a new character.

    I really want some Dinobots or Insecticons, but I don’t think TT gives 2 hoots about MPs of them.

    Aren’t we overdue for a Figure King magazine this month? Or did I miss it completely because it had no MP info?

    Yeah, it came out a few days ago but no scans have been posted yet. Most likely because there was nothing newsworthy in there.

    Im confident well get some news soon. Only concern is with a Sunstreaker reissue in May we may not see anything till June or July. Which sucks on the G1 side as Hound is December and Smokescreen + is January.

    We've still got the Generations book, Tokyo Comic Con and 3 more Figure King magazines before then so I'm staying cautiously optimistic we'll see something before Wonderfest.

    With Sunstreaker already on the schedule for May, it will be June at the earliest before MP-49 releases. We could see a reveal in November, but next summer is still a depressingly long way off.

    They're all gonna be pricey from here out...at least by comparison. $125 for a Carbot might not be murder on the wallet, but considering that used to get you at least two Carbots or friggin' MP Magnus...I'll just stick with the overrated FT Galvatron I got for $125.

    But I have no doubt TT's would/will smoke FT's. Won't be worth the $300 or so to me to find out first hand, though.

    If the window between reveal and launch is 6 months, I think we won't see a new reveal until december to be released in june

    And the new Transformers Generations book is scheduled to be released on 10th december, if you know what I mean ;)

    Right. It's literally the one thing I'm benefitting from having to wait so much longer now between releases that interest me none.
