    Today's kids really missed out on the era of the Saturday morning cartoon mid-80's-mid 90's I always feel.

    Being glued to a smartphone just don't cut it. :D :p

    It's times like I wish there was a 'love' button as well as the 'like' one. I'm 100% there with you though I've remained flexible enough to enjoy some the recent moulds despite this strong preference.

    Edit: oops, realised this was posted over a week ago (I seem to have fallen behind with this thread) and the discussion is all played out now. Good points on all sides etc. As you were people. :confused2

    So I guess a lot of people want something like a Dreamwave-esque approach? A combination of animation model and toy look with some added detail (without puffy proportions of course). Some of the earlier mps like Prowl and Sideswipe seem to be influenced by that style.

    I can dig that, but I won't mind a very faithful Sunbow style subline either. I really like the V3 optimus, Hound and Sunstreaker.

    Ah, to be the last of a generation... I remember watching Transformers Animated week by week, what a cliffhanger Part 1 of Megatron Rising was...

    Admittedly we 80's kids in the U.K. had to tolerate this guy introducing episodes early in the Sunbow run, but hey .... he had his moments. :rolleyes: :D

    I realised after the event the lucky talisman of greatness that is Mallet befell my 2005th post so have edited in an equally subdued caption befitting of the occasion ...:rolleyes:

    He’s only talking about the grey part at the back of the orange canon. Not the orange part itself. He’s wondering how they would handle that.

    I used to own the FT version and I thought the gun transforming so the grey part ended up inside the orange part was a great idea.

    As said before. There was never a G1 seeker combiner. So very not likely. Combiners beyond Raiden is still in the air as is for the Masterpiece line.

    Absolutely not.

    CHUG was where Volcanicus happened, and CHUG is still the place for stuff like this. Masterpiece is a whole other story by comparison.

    Combiner Wars has never and will never = Masterpiece. There was never a g1 seeker combiner and (G1) MP is as G1 centric as it gets. It doesn't deviate. Not gonna happen.

    I'm hoping TT show something MP related shortly after MP-52's release. Sometimes they do that, but most of the time they don't.

    How great would it to be to reveal Jazz and Cliffjumper together.:) 

    Still not sure how intent they are into dipping their toe into Transformers 2010 and beyond.

    Unfortunately we've got jack squat. Closest we have is good ol' MP-08 and the 3P sets from Fans Toys and Gigapower.

    While i'm getting 2 sets of FT's, i'd buy up a Takara set in an instant.
