    Seeing her in more poses makes me like her more. I may pick her up as a good toy, even if her screen accuracy is somewhat lacking. Especially if the transformation is fun.

    Somebody on Twitter said that these will be the only new molds and a couple of pluses for this year. I'm inclined to agree. I was really hoping for one more new G1 since they gave us a repaint at 49.

    Toy Prime/Toy Bee/Toy Hound the most probably.

    Painted Magnus/Matte Color Tracks / Matte Color Ironhide the less probably

    Diaclone Ironhide/Diaclone Megatron/ Spaceman Shockwave near to none

    I assume we will have to wait a tad longer for 44+. I don’t think they’d release info about that while 49 is in the pipeline.

    Is Megatron the only "toy" version they've made since they took the all toon direction? Not sure why everyone thinks all the toon versions will get a toy version as well

    Shockwave is an open debate, but we can say to have a Toy and an anime version, who is who is a matter of taste, lol.

    I'd be up for a toy Prime if they used the MP-10 mold, I think it would work better in terms of proportions.

    Would we get cassettes in + as well I wonder. I have only been thinking of Soundwave as a v2.

    I think most people think MP13 is pretty much all you need. Those that got the yellow eyes version like myself could upgrade with the light up set, and have all the cassettes. There's nothing particularly wrong with those either.

    Would a v2 be that much different, is the question... if not, a + version would just give us yellows for gold, greys for silver, etc. and hit the toon aesthetic. Same for the cassettes.

    For TT, the market for a v2 (which would have to be toon in the new direction) is pretty much the same market as a + version. They could churn out a + version this year and make a killing, or sell a few more, for a higher price, but have to develop the figure, make the moulds etc. and eat into that extra income.

    I reckon they go with whichever they think will make the most profit, end of.

    I only suggested it because I thought about which figures would be suitable for a toy/toon +. From the first 25, I only see Grimlock (arguably needs a v2 in any case, so might as well wait), Rodimus (ditto), Seekers (ditto), Soundwave and cassettes, and Tracks. After that, toy versions of Fuso Bros? After that I'm struggling... Van Bros, nope. They'll never do the toy versions and they're clearly toon representations, hip skirts be damned.

    Well, i don't think that a V2 will require a lot of engineering. More articulation, different head and a different chest proportion. What i think that the target of work would be the cassetticons: more ticker (maybe double), so they can be bigger and better scaled.

    Have to say, I really can’t get on board with Soundwave 2.0 talk. For me, MP-13 does everything perfectly well. He’s got the look dead on; he’s the right size; he’s got the perfect colours. The cassettes are great and beautifully crafted. For me, a 2.0 would be the most boring news possible as I’d have to wait out the redone Soundwave, Soundblaster and 8 cassettes before we’d start seeing a sniff of a new character again. It’s why I don’t want a new Seeker mould either. I want to consider these guys done, and move on. There’s a whole Movie cast to make for a start.

    So for this year, we have:

    2 Hinted At MPMs
    2 New BWs and a Repaint
    1 New G1, 2 Repaints and a Reissue

    It's almost a repeat of 2018, for G1 MPs.

    Smokey+ is my only G1 purchase this year.
