    How much did he go for in your neck of the woods? Just curious. Also on an unrelated note, ever since earthrise cliff jumper, I desperately want an MP of him. Seriously I love this little figure, oddly enough my favorite purchase this year. It's funny because even though I know it's a different design, alt mode, and personality I used to view him as a repaint of bumblebee due to their similar stature and a few shared design cues.

    Think it was around €800 the cheapest, can’t remember exactly.


    Sidenote I’ve also been craving Cliffjumper lately. The real MP-49!

    It's so darn quiet on the G1 MP front.

    Come on, Takara. At least throw us a damn bone for upcoming new G1 MPs. I blame the relative silence of 2020 on the stupid virus, but I'm still having bouts of 2018 G1 MP Wasteland p.t.s.d. here.

    Can we please get Jazz, CJ and Mirage out of this mess, for being good little G1 MP collect-a-holics?
    Pretty please? :(

    Pff good little G1 MP collect-a-holics would have pre-ordered MP-51 :p 


    The timing of when Tokyo Toy Show was supposed to be is surely approaching though, right? Maybe they'll show something off in Figure King instead. It might be Raiden related, though.

    I'll tell you what, IF Takara reveals an MP Jazz, CJ or Mirage by October of 2020, I'll buy MP Arcee.

    I'll hold you to that :D 


    Well it was planned June 11th-14th so I'd be expecting something from next month's magazine, maybe.

    I'm not too worried about it, since I don't see Takara announcing any of them this year. That being said, if I'm wrong, I'll gladly buy MP Arcee. :)

    Yup, that was more or less my thinking of where they go with 52, we have June and July and I'm kind of expecting a release for Jan/Feb in 2021. I'm guessing their situation with Unicron was the same, paying up front, allowing the beginning of 2021 to be left opened for a release.

    Shoot if Takara announces a Jazz, I'll stop collecting beast wars and go all in on mp autobots.

    I'm trying to remember this time last year or maybe two years ago.

    Two years ago I guess we had our MP-44 reveal at a toy show and in magazines (that was weird, since he didn't come out for another 15 months).

    We also had Hound's reveal in July 2018, and he didn't make it out for 17 months.

    Bumblebee was revealed in February 2019 and released 9 months later (originally supposed to be 7 months).


    I don't know what any of this means. We could get some more teasers of Raiden, who won't come out til late 2021?


    Summer Wonder Fest this year had already been pushed back to Autumn Wonder Fest in November, and that's cancelled too. November was way too late for them to reveal MPs for early 2021 anyway, so we'll have to rely on magazines or website reveals.

    I feel like usually MPs weren't announced in the summer months. So if we don't hear something by July then I won't expect any news til September.



    Where's @TTemploy at these days?

    Im pretty sure Lio was a TTS reveal with a Feb. release.
    Maybe this is an easter egg but both of these pose are from TFTM, the hand over her chest pose is after she pulls Windcharger's body next to Wheeljacks. Could they be hinting at a MP Windcharger?

    And the first pose is her checking to see how far out Hot Rod and Kup were when they're about to transform autobot city. So...

    I'd take Kup and Windcharger (especially Kup).

    Frankly I'd take anything at this point.

    Think we all would, right?

    I know for me I have certain characters that I want, but with how much I love what TT are doing right now I wouldn't be surprised to be tempted by whoever's next.
    Hell, it already happened with the BW releases (the only reason I watched Beast Wars is because of how impressed I was upon MP-41's reveal).

    I would take another carbot, or Starscream. Anything else, I'd need a lot of convincing. I did preorder Arcee, but I've always been charmed by her Bertone-esque car mode and her place in history as the first female Transformer.
