    Yep, it's the cost the part that made me think about this kind of MP combiner form.
    Takara can absolutely pull out a toon accurate MP combiner in Optimus Prime 3.0. quality, but the cost of the team (because they have to sell you the entire team) could scare peoples. Anyway, the combiner i was thinking is in proportion like the SS Hot Rod is for the deluxe POTP Hot Rod, where UW Devastator is the deluxe Hot Rod.

    Oh no,that would be crazy, mp-44 complexity. I'm looking more at Inferno/Grapple. Looks like with the newer releases they're trying to scale it back some to there versus MP-44/MP-39 complexity.

    Honestly, I think scaling complexity back to the level from MP-29 to MP-36 is the right idea. I love MP-39, and think it's about the correct upper level, but it's been getting a bit too much recently.

    That being said, you can tell we're all dying for something a little more concrete, because combiners have come up yet again. Can we all jsut wait for Raiden to get the full reveal before we ever talk about combiners again? Once we know the pricing and schedule on that one, I think we'll all know a lot more about combiners and can put it to bed.

    Absolute nailed on, bet-your-house-on-it confirmation of Soundwave v2 :D  You don't get included in promo shots for new figures unless you're about to be replaced with a newer version :cool:

    Probably the divisive release in 2021. Read most ppl think mp13 can’t get any better, maybe except for a + release.

    It would be so funny if they beat FansToys to the punch again, just like they did with MP-13.

    Soundwave 2.0 would be divisive, simply being another 2.0 in the same year and another Decepticon. Almost feels like they would need another autobot reveal to balance things out. Skids in the middle by himself would be like having a sandwich with one slice of meat. Then again they havent been concerned with symmetry in the release cycle in a while.

    The bells are ringing :D 

    If Thundercracker is due around October then that still leaves time for another release before the end of the year perhaps?

    TTMall says September.

    Starscream is June.

    I'm thinking Skywarp is gonna be the December slot that Arcee just filled.

    I'm hoping since Skids was revealed first hes July or August. I'm thinking like @Sam, skwarp will be his own release in 2022 probably.

    Ok yeah a V2 soundwave or Hot Rod would definitely cause some annoyance.

    I'm not sure if a V2 Grimlock would upset anyone, but I also don't care because I really want a proper 100% toon Grimlock.

    I guess, but FT soundwave looks much better with the seekers than MP-13, who's looking like the odd man out with new seekers,
    Megatron,and Shockwave.

    I like MP-28 but after SS86 snd MP51, it's a lot harder to make the case he doesnt need an update. Of course a new Hot Rod makes it easier to sneak in another mold as his price tag is going to less than Soundwaves.

    I don't know who would complain about a new Grimlock or Rodimus at this point, those molds are for all intents "dead" to Takara anyway. Honestly I think they could release any 2.0 they want as long as their a new mold of something with it. Last time it was Hound, I dont think Skids fills that spot as well, maybe Skids and a minibot or maybe another diaclone.

    Did you edit the blue for Thundercracker? That looks way more accurate than the light powder blue Takara actually went with.

    I noticed that too--I think Takara edited this photo actually, because the canopy looks unusually golden-red and Starscream's blue also appears to have been changed to match TC in this shot (he looked greener in his photos). I'll be pleased if both figures are closer to this shade of blue in hand :D

    No editing on my part just copied and pasted. Hopefully it's this shade come release but I'm happy enough with how it looks in other images
