    It’s just message boards. It sounds like you really aren’t invested. For someone who really loves it, going to different boards isn’t that big a deal. And I’m not sure the change was because of hostility but more of just specific focus. I didn’t mind seeing the other toys mentioned but I have no interest in bayverse or BW. Nothing against them, just no interest

    Although I am enjoying the Masterpiece Beast Wars Speculation thread becuase BW fans voices are not being downed out by G1 chatter I totally agree with this point. Thing is you can't have it both ways.

    I mean you totally can. You just have the regular thread where people can talk about whatever AND have separate threads for each series.

    Surely that will result in a lot of repetition. Anyway this thread is sort of moot for me now so you guys enjoy yourselves!

    One thing I'm hoping for as we near MP-50 is a second volume of the Official Masterpiece Guidebook. The first volume covered up to MP-24 Star Saber's grey prototype, so we'll be due for another! Really love that book, even if I can't read Japanese. Chock full of never before seen photos and sketches, a must own.

    That would be amazing, presumably full-on Chibli-fied like MP Bee v2.

    Last check, 50 wasnt going to be BW so its a chance that 49 and 50 could be G1. The question would be would CJ be a entirely new mold or like we saw in Titans returns share a lot of engineering with Bee.

    Off topic! Aaargh! Call the sassy French soldiers from Holy Grail.

    Joking aside, it’s no surprise there’s no G1 or otherwise MPs on there - we’ve got multiple G1 and BW pieces coming out. A couple of MPMs make sense to be followed by a new G1 reveal in the new year.

    Got to admit Earthrise is looking pretty impressive. Granted we're starting to get late in the year, but I still think Starscream happens in 2020. Tracks is probably the last plus and they'll need a mold to balance out repaints, especially since they seem to do more repaints G1 wise.

    News cannot come soon enough:lol 

    Atleast Bee will be him soon and with the holidays pretty much here, the wait for Hound will breeze right on through. Still not a real big fan of the schedule, with the mad dash in the 2nd half. Im guessing its decided by factory availability Wished we would have got a general release g1 release in the first half lime MP 40/20+. Seeing Hounds gun at the show ,I cant help but think his repaint will take a slot this year.

    If 2020 mirrors this year then 49 and 50 will be G1, 51 BW and 52 G1 again. I'd be totally happy with that as it means 2 new BW molds, 3 new G1 molds and 2 new MPM molds in a year, which is the perfect pace for me. With the higher pricing that's about the limit of what I'd like to purchase.

    The engineering likely trickled down from the MP. I thought it was the MP when I first saw the home page with tired eyes.

    With this level of radio silence from insiders, it sure must be something sweet on the horizon.

    Who knows maybe that Trailbreaker / Blaster rumor finally comes true. Honestly I thought Seige Mirage or Reflector may have been a precursor to a reveal. Its only so msny spots left in the calendrr eith atleast ine BW and one month clear.

    I thought the same too. I remember TCracker said something about a Reflector one time also.
    With them having finally upgraded Op to match Megatron, I'm sorta happy with whatever character they decide to go with now.. I think It was Dean ML & Holyculture saying "going along with the gravy train" I wonder if there's a Starscream, Galvatron & Rodimus on a shelf whos order is decided on a coin toss haha

    Oh, I’m pretty confident part of the funding for MPs comes from back-engineering for new Generations figures. Just look at the Siege Sideswipe and Grapple. Those things are practically the Masterpieces with less parts.

    Trailbreaker/hoist is the last ho-hum reveal ... minibots and leader-size bots will be the new standard that can both command a price premium going forward - I’m ok with this so long as they aren’t regularly charging north of $300 a figure ... at that point I cant deal with a MP-44 with disappearing paint and exploding knees ...
