    I hope they show barricade at the same time as optimus.

    I want to see them in the toyfair (march 5th)

    Agreed. I'd really like to them to show the other movie masterpieces soon. I can't wait to see Barricade (including how they do Frenzy).

    And I hope they reveal Optimus before the end of March. I'm still trying to decide whether to cancel my preorder for Takara's anniversary movie Optimus (MOVIE THE BEST!!) and hold out for the new MMP mold instead, but I'd like to see it first!

    It's like they don't do frenzy at all, and the mmp prime is just a rehash of the old mold scaled up, that would be pretty disappointing

    Oh. Do we usually get anything new from it? Or is it a straight copy of NYTF?

    In the Australian ToyFair we got the info about the 30th anniversary figures of Transformers in 2014.

    The last year it was a NYTF but with less figures.

    I'll totally buy a Movie Masterpiece Barricade, regardless of which one it is. (I assume OT given Bumblebee)

    Wouldn't an upscaled leader Prime with a few more bits of clean up basically be what everyone wants out of a Movie MP Prime anyway? That figure did damn near everything perfect for it's price point and scale. Take out the battery compartment and add a few more steps of cleanup and jointing and he'd be perfect.

    Some ones think that the Leader Mold it's impossible to make it better, but they are wrong, by the productions cost, the first leader released in ROTF would have rubber tires, better way to fold the box on the sides of the legs to make it a cleaner look, individual fingers, lights on the vechile mode, a skinny profile, but all that was a problem by the the integration of the Mech Alive and the electronics on the huge backpack. So yeah, they can do a better optimus only if they don't put electronics this time. (I'm sure that bee won't have those electronics unlike the bbatle ops, and look how they can fold up and compress all the backpack).

    This is pretty much my opinion. The ROTF Prime is a masterpiece as far as I'm concerned. (So far beyond the current leader figs it's almost funny. Put Sky Shadow next to him, ahahahaha.) But yes, some compromises were made for the electronics, and some parts/articulation was left out due to budget (articulated hands, and the toolbox retracting into the leg, as I recall). He's one of the best mainline figures ever released, but he could certainly be made even better.

    I can't imagine a completely new mold topping him... but that's why I'm so curious to see them try! One thing I'm REALLY hoping to see on the MMP is a retractable battle mask. And I think there's a good chance he'll have one, since MMP Bumblebee has his.

    Or they could make the mask like leader class Megatron's, cause both methods work

    While I am excited and will totally buy an MP Barricade, I hope there are more Movie Masterpieces in store. Don't just leave it at three!

    Haha, of course. Something like the new leader Megs or Armor Knight Optimus would be fine. I just want to be able to switch between both looks without partsforming. : )

    Oh my goodness yes. I'll take a Sideswipe and Sentinel Prime please. And dare we hope for a DOTM Megs??

    I wish the bumblebee was either the current version or the dark of the moon version. The original, to me, is just a tad bland when compared to the other iterations.

    An MP DOTM Megatron would be epic.

    Swipes too since I always loved that bladed arms and wheeled feet design of his -- talk about cutlery on the go! Swipes had an enormous advantage over the other bipedal Bots.

    Jazz would be cool too but his HA toy is damn near MP quality already to me. Bonecrusher or Blackout would be my picks if they're sticking to the first film.

    Leader ROTF Prime is really, really good I have 3 of the mold but if you compare it with Weijang OS KO Evasion mode Prime you can see how good he could be. The backpack is huge and he should be less bulky, have longer legs. Granted that was with a G1 alt mode but he should look more like that in robot mode. I just wonder what the scale will be and if they plan on making more cuz I know I'd buy better MP versions of basically everybody if the scale was consistent.

    Although that'd be a whole lotta guys to rebuy. Obviously the whole licensing thing could be an issue if they were to go that route, which I'm sure they won't.

    Masterpiece Ironhide please?????

    The nice thing is, with back to back movies (at least I think the BB movie is next year), maybe they could keep this line going for a couple years if they have more in the pipeline (yes I know there are 3 scheduled for this movie).
