    ...fun fact deep cover shares with the original microchange decepticons: they're the only 1:1 scale toys in the transformers line unless you count juvenile rats...

    So will V3 Starscream’s head be the same gray that came with mp44....

    Man that is really light. I understand the silver sometimes translated to white or gray, but not the washed out black color.

    I’m really hoping they don’t do that for Seeker heads or a Trailbreaker.

    I wonder if they have access to the original color charts for the character models and that's what they're using for these guys? I would be willing to bet with the attention to animation accuracy that's what's going on.

    For me, I hope any actual Black Megs MP is the Microchange Black Walther deco (black with blue bits) over the eHobby toy...though I'd honestly probably buy an eHobby black version too, if offered. I'd just be a little annoyed about it lol.

    If we'd gotten Deep Cover instead of Clampdown, I'd just be pining for Clampdown then. I don't think Lamborghini fatigue ever hit, given Takara went and made a more expensive Sunstreaker mold and Cordon redeco. Takara backing off of redecos in general and slowing their pace probably fucked Deep Cover more than anything. At this point though, yeah, I tend to assume they'll just hold off on Deep Cover until we get a new Lambor/Alert mold.

    Sorry, I meant not Lamborghini fatigue but the Lambor mold. He was pretty much the 5th release of the mold.
    Probably

    So mp49 is July, MP on Raiden the horizon....I could have sworn someone said the reveal cycle was going to be starting back up;) .
    Now if everything holds to form we should know who MP50 soon as that puts us in August/September. At worse ,Wonderfest, at best the end of this month.

    The timing is right for Raiden to be MP-50. I'm kind of hoping for it, actually.

    I'm more on the Galvatron or Starscream v3 train but who knows at this point.

    I'm kinda just desperate for more decepticons.

    I guess it depends how far along they are where he's ready now or this is lije their version of Unicron, where every couple of months well get an update showing the progress till actual reveal.

    If he's that close he's definitely a box set, which should actually be cheaper since your cutting down on a lot of the overhead compared to 6 solo bots, off the top of my head,packaging and transportation.

    I have the feeling we won't be seeing MP Raiden for a while. I think it will be similar to Dinobot and Optimus V3, where they teased the figure very early on in the production to start the hype and we'll be getting tidbits for the next year and a alf. My bet for MP50 is still Starscream V3 or maaaaybe Galvatron.

    Wouldn't mind at all if it turns out to be Arcee either. After Blackarachnia I'm super hyped to see more MP fembots.

    MP-50 will be Detritus or Skids or something, because Takara doesn't care about the numbering.

    Skids would actually be a good MP50.
    I'm going to out on a limb and say Grimlock or Kup.

    I’m guessing 50 will be someone from out of deep left field. Probably someone we haven’t discussed very much here. Although, there’s not many original Ark crew members or S1 cast left, it will probably one we least expect. Takara gonna Takara.

    The real question is what Raiden's price point would be, and if they're willing to do split sets, or box set only. My money is on box set only, since combiners would be a tough sell by themselves - hell, most teams would, other than perhaps the Dinobots, and most would just want Grimlock and/or the original trio, so they would easily adjust production numbers. '

    Does Diaclone count as G1? I thought it predated it. Does that need its own speculation thread? :thinking:

    After looking at my list of incoming Transformers between now and July, I don't know whether to appreciate the break to my wallet or fear a repeat of 2018.

    I only have 3 incoming MPs: Hound, Smokey Plus, and Lio Convoy. The rest of my incoming is all Siege.

    The MP road ahead, so far:
    MP47 Hound- New G1 character, to end 2019.
    MP19+ Smokey-A G1 Repaint for January.
    MP48 Lio Convoy-A New BW for February
    MP38+ Burning Convoy-A BW Repaint for March
    MP39 Sunstreaker-A G1 Reissue for June
    MP49 Black Convoy-A G1 Repaint for July
    MPM10 and MPM11

    I'm hoping the second half of 2020 will see a couple new G1 character MPs.
    I have a feeling that Raiden won't happen until, at least, 2021.

    Yo, Takara! Can we please round out the S1 Ark Crew by the end of 2021?
    Tell you what TT, if you release CJ/Jazz/Mirage between now and early 2021, I'll buy your freaking Raiden......and will do so without complaint.
    :cool:

    Hmmm… with a reissue of Sunstreaker in June, maybe MP-50 will be Sideswipe v2. Maybe others have already discussed that, I haven’t been in this thread much lately.
