    Yes sir. I am most excited by Wheeljack+ for the reasons you've listed. The Hound on display is a rough draft so I can't wait to see a final version. I'm interested to see the colors of Prime V3.

    I'm wondering if TT's added more designers to the MP line. Between G1, BW and the MPM line, that's a lot of figures in development. Hound and Prime have been displayed but oddly enough, no Trailbreaker or Hoist. They were mentioned when Sunstreaker came out so I would have expected to see them before Hound. Not being concerned with Jazz for the moment, Mirage, Waspinator, Rhinox or Rattrap surfacing soon?

    That TB/ Hoist mention turned out to be misleading. Someone on here posted the full translation of the interview and it was the interviewer who brought up those characters and asked how they would distinguish the 2 in MP form. Takara did not mention that they were working on them or mention them first.

    I just picked him up today! Absolutely amazing figure and I really enjoyed transforming him into his robot mode, it’s actually really fun! Do be careful when first attaching his tail to his beast mode, as his back panels were quite hard to adjust and are easy to break before you loosen them up. 5380DD55-F069-44B5-859E-3AE8938A8029.jpeg

    Trailbreaker and Hoist were actually mentioned by the interviewer, not interviewee, so not exactly a confirmation from the design team that they'll be out soon. Who knows, though ;)

    Nope, it is just an exposed pin for the wrist swivel.

    Noted, and I apologize for the excessive size. I will resize it next time I post

    Seems like I really read it wrong. Hope there are preliminary sketches/designs around somewhere. I'm perfectly OK with Hound, Wheeljack+ and Prime plus Dinobot and Megatron for now.

    I had Dinobot on pre-order since day one for the Amazon Japan price. For the longest time I was really looking forward to it, but as time went on, I just started losing interest. It looks awesome, but something always felt...off. I don't know what it was, but it ended up making me cancel the pre-order a couple of weeks back.
    Instead, I decided to concentrate on getting caught up on some older stuff.
    When I first started being interested in the line, I picked up a few from eBay on the cheap. Turned out they were KO's, which now irritates me to no end. So, I'm working on replacing the garbage with the real deals, starting with this:
    IMG_20180731_074211.jpg IMG_20180731_074232.jpg IMG_20180731_074442.jpg IMG_20180731_074505.jpg IMG_20180731_074530.jpg
    Man, from the moment I unboxed this figure I could tell the difference. I am so pleased to finally have the real deal. Such a beautiful figure!
    Now I only need Prowl and Silverstreak...

    I also brought Roadrage with me today. I don't have Tracks or Loud Pedal (dammit!!!), So she's my first experience with the mold.
    Again, such an awesome figure! I like transforming the backpack differently just to make it less of a clone of mold mates, and it works for me.

    Exhaust being a bad influence...
    "So, no bad side effects or health risks?"
    "Nah, it's all good. You can trust me."

    I’ve had these guys for a while now (along with Grimlock) and I think I want to start collecting MPs for real now.

    I usually cringe at mis-transformed backpacks on the Tracks mould (intentional or not), but that's actually a really neat orientation you've got it in there :thumb

    Thanks!
    Yeah, the orientation doesn't clash with any other parts and keeps it all nice and tidy.
