    I’d take either. I don’t have MP-12 anymore so that would probably be a more practical purchase for me. However, I don’t believe we’ve gotten a 2.0 of any figure that has a + variant. I imagine Starscream is more likely.

    Just in case Takara reads these boards, I'll restate that all I want is MP-12D Deep Cover. Then they can make a new Sideswipe.

    Hoping for Sideswipe / Alert 2.0 as I just sold my BC Steamroll :rolleyes:  it was great but somehow I feel still can't compare to what TT have done with Sunstreaker or FT with Spoiler

    I would laugh my tail off, and be happy. I could only imagine the head explosions of redoing a old mold and doing it with Jazz and Mirage still out there.
    Sides wipe is almost getting like Bee and Prime , He's constantly showing up in some iteration across all the Transformer lines.

    With MP49 being a Decepticon (albeit a repaint), perhaps MP50 will be another Autobot. Super Ginrai would be pretty left field but I could see it happening.

    Super Ginrai would be super-expensive probably as much or more as 44. I would guess something more midrange $150-220. I think they want to sale black convoy to pick back up some of the people disappointed with 44 QC. I wouldnt be surprised to see a carbot/minibot at 50 like Mirage...or Skids:confused2

    As much as I'd love a carbot like Mirage, Jazz or Skids I can see this being a reveal for a V3 seeker.. Although I'd much rather a reveal for an MP Trailbreaker! :D

    Actually, Im kind of hoping with black convoy and Unicron w get a run of TFTM bots. Arcee at 50 would be a good call being the first real fembot and maybe Galvatron or Cyclonus. It would be awesome if they could still squeeze a Starscream in that August-February window.

    yes, but i've been looking for pics or blog posts for hours and nothing. I hope this doesn't mean there isn't anything of interest to the MP line in there. I highly doubt that's the case. There should be lots of tidbits and pics of upcoming things.

    Have they ever previewed a new mp from the generations book?

    Or any Easter eggs that turned out to be something?

    I can't remember any. I thought they were mostly a "year in review" thing.

    You are now officially a member! We are devoted to our lord and savior Scorponok, one of the most underrated characters in Beast Wars. We demand he get a Masterpiece figure immediately!

    Of course if you're more into G1, feel free to interpret this as G1 Scorponok ;)  (you're already getting a titan class figure though!)

    Energon Scorponok enthusiasts are welcome too, of course!

    On topic: man, I really wanna know who MP50 is gonna be!

    Is it going to be anticlimactic if it is in fact Raiden?
