    A lot.
    Which might make me pass on him, given I already have two versions of the character, unless the MP is truly phenomenal. Or finally decide to sell the Fanstoys one.

    It realistically could only be in the $200-$300 USD area.
    But Takara will probably Takara.

    How long ago was the MP Skyfire rumor that we all thought turned out to be the WFC release? Do you guys think this is the product of that original rumor or a refinement of the WFC design (lessons learned and all that...)?

    So basically the WFC one but they fix it so he's not peeping over his own cockpit

    a refinement of the WFC most likely, we know from Kingdom and SS they will borrow the MP designers. The original design may have been for am MP that was simplified for sell in the Generations line.

    Getting to Skyfire was inevitable, cross another S1 character off the list.

    Also: Raiden at UW height = divisive...

    I'm going to start a new bank account just for Skyfire, because that mofo is gonna break it.

    @jackisking I think you're probably dead-on there. That toy was way more detailed and complex than the WFC line usually allowed. I wonder if the MP would actually be bigger to meet MP scale though? Skyfire should probably stand around 14-16 inches to give him roughly the right height against MP-44.

    Counterpoint;
    not really as divisive if its limited partsforming if any and the scale emphasis is based on robot mode versus gestalt. The fact that scale for bots could be between hot rod and ironhide works for me.

    Well, shit. Sam just mentioned this in the MP Starscream thread. I thought it was just wishful thinking on his part.

    On the one hand, if this is real, I’m happy as fuck.

    On the other hand, I JUST got Fans Toys Phoenix like two months ago. As mush as I like Phoenix, I would’ve held out for Takara.

    I can't believe we're talking about Skyfire and not that sexy Reboost! Red Skids, man, red Skids! :music

    I gotta give it to you man! :D . I didn't see them even touching him due to his size and the fact that after season 1 he kinda just faded away. Not to mention the wonderful Siege version.

    I'm gonna go try and catch up now in all the threads that seemed to be MP related today LOL

    To be fair I think Shin specifically said his mystery MP wasn't Skyfire, but I can't be held responsible right now, Unicron came in the mail this week and I'm channeling Orson Welles' ego, so don't feed it! :lol

    Image the disapointment for G1 fans if this turns out to be MPM Jetfire from bayverse movies.

    So what version of Skyfire is suppose to look like a carebear?

    So Skyfire and Reboost for 2022?
    As long as Skyfire doesn't cost an astronomical amount of money, I'm in.
    Also count me in for Skids and that awesome looking Reboost.
    Hoping Crosscut won't be too far behind.
