    I think it would be terrible to knock Godbomber out of the MPG-10 slot. Don't make people wait longer to complete God Ginrai than they already have to (had I been calling the shots, he'd have already been revealed. Frankly I'm a little suspicious that they haven't shown him off yet).

    Rumours aside. God Bomber is the only that has official hints to back him up for the MPG10 slot, it makes sense the next release is to complete the previous set, just like Raiden.

    The point is, let's be prepared if God Bomber is the only reveal for a long time this year and we don't get to see Jazz or a BW character soon so we don't get our hopes high for nothing.

    I dont think the goal was to gave them follow each other back to back, we probably have saw them together if that was the case. My guess we get something inbetween to break them up, Godbomber is as big as Super Ginrai. They can still get it out reasonably close like March or April.

    I think we'll start seeing Godbomber well before mpg09 is released. If TTS is in August-, probably then, especially if they have a panel like last time.

    The thing is, being MPG10 doesn’t mean he’d have been the next MP/MPG release before the merge either. The release order could’ve always been something like MPG9/MP60 > MP61 > MPG10 for instance. In that case, if they wanted to stick to the original release post-merge, they’d change MP61 to MPG10, and bump up God Bomber to MPG11.

    Of course it’s also possible that they’ll release them out of order, releasing MPG11 before MPG10, like they did back in the early days with Sideswipe and Soundwave.

    God Bomber coming first before any of the other guys is still possible too of course. Hopefully we’ll find out in the next few months.

    It would be kind of cool if we got a Roadbuster out of the new line, always had a soft spot for the toy, because it was hard to find and came with so much stuff. I think Bandai owns the rights to that too

    They do, and as such they never got roadbuster in Japan, so not likely sadly.

    Oh damn…looks like he could be a missing link stand in!!! Given roadbuster and whirl are likely off the table for that line as well.

    Sadly, it looks like CM never did the Ovelon Gazette which was what was licensed for Whirl.

    AFAIK they only own the molds for the Dorvack toys that they bought from Takatoku when Takatoku went out of business. Presumably all Takara would need to make an accurate Roadbuster toy is a license from Ashi Productions, they’d just need to base it more off the anime design than the Takatoku toy design. Bandai only owns the rights to the Takatoku toy, not the anime design.

    If TakaraTomy and Bandai can’t “Dream Together” for a MP Jetfire(using Bandai’s existing 1/48 scale DX VF-1 mold) the workaround would be for Takara to see if they can get a Macross transforming VF-1 toy license in a scale that Bandai nor any other licensee in Japan isn’t currently using.

    Im thinking more along the basis if their new line, with guest designers alongside the " Dream together" collaboration we could see some stuff definitely thought not to be possible before. It would be interesting to see a Takara take on the VF, but I imagine both the VF and Dorvack would probably sell pretty well over there.

    Still havent found out is the Predaking Flame toys or someone else. They threw that out so they're definitely far enough along on it, that hopefully we can get some more info in the generations book or by the end of the year.

    Or an AMT Volcanicus, that line could be a good way to shell out molds that Takara wants to do in a MP way but they don't fit in the MP line (I still believe that Predaking will be a Megazord style combiner). Omnibots, toy-only characters... dunno.

    I hope we get an MP scale AMT Victory Saber designed by Masami Obari

    EDIT:
    Liokaizer too

    Honestly, I'm hoping we get a Dai Atlas. I think omnibots would end up in the regular line, that whole Ono thing.

    Having just finished my vintage Omnibot collection, I would love some kind of modern update. I can see why they weren’t put on store shelves, because their size and heft don’t really match the rest of the Autobot cars, but they are very cool all the same.

    My only hope for these guys is X-Transbots.
    I don't see any other MP company touching those Takatoku designs, nor the Omnibots.

    I'd like for Takara to pull their heads out of their ass and finish the G1 Ark Crew.
    MPs of Jazz, CJ and Mirage.
    Then Windcharger, the dinobots, Blurr, Blaster, Cosmos, the Aerialbots, Elita One, Chromia, Moonracer.......
