I’m sure needlenose is inevitable. Can’t imagine they won’t eventually make him.
Literally everyone else in those polls have been released in one line or another. They have to have concept designs ready for all poll participants so they can immediately start on whoever wins. He will happen eventually.
I never use votes as a metric for "who comes next". MP Lio Convoy was made before MP Armada Prime
Next year’s the anniversary; surely Takara’s got something cooking?
MPMS-48 "Movie Special" Lio Convoy based on this would be my guess:
And with Targetmasters. Which is more than we can say for quite a few such characters.
Been waiting forever for this one.
But I meant Micron Densetsu actually.
God I hope. Then again I don't want him to be a lone release because I know for a fact they're gonna make a goddamn MP Swerve before they even touch Hot Shot or Megatron
This year was Robots in Disguise’s anniversary. And beast wars. Takara didn’t do much for either. Wouldn’t get your hopes up but hopefully they do something.
I still can't believe Generations Brave Maximus isn't a thing yet. Or, at least an Encore reissue. Talk about low hanging fruit...
Two of my favourite continuities in this franchise (RiD2001 and Animated) still getting no respect.
Yup. The speed of production is now in the hands of the machines making the plastic. Let say their injection molding machine can crank out 5,000 pcs a day. Then that's what the speed will be. Hiring more people wouldn't make a difference since their machine will still be only creating 5,000 pcs a day. They could have 2 machines cranking out parts, but that'll add to the cost. You would need to create another mold (which in itself requires 70-90 days) that's assuming they even have the capacity to CNC another mold. Maybe more people can help with the assembly, but then more people mean paying more money.
I as well got the in production email. im stoked
He’s going to fit well into the jap shelf between god ginrai and dai atlas
For the most part, my post about increased production speed was just a willfully ignorant type of wishful thinking. Not in the least upset or expect anything like it. But the last part of assembly was essentially what I meant. The kind of thing that will never happen, maybe even shouldn't happen, but would be cool. That's all. It wasn't an 'evil Hasbro' post or anything of the sort.
lol made me think of this
Cool to see that it's already going in to production. Shame it'll take that long, given that it seems like a quicker process from what we've seen (@Apollux only recently saw a block prototype of Motormaster, not even a proper proto, and Commanders release in the summer, so Star Saber would be long past that stage, although I suppose @Apollux probably doesn't get/share the info right when his friend finds out). Anyway, really hyped, hope he arrives before next Christmas!
Every time I get or give a like I think of the Meow Meow beenz episode of that show...
I went into this purchase treating it like a pre-order that'll take about a year to get to me. Probably the best way to cope with the wait, though I will admit I don't like paying ahead of time on pre-orders because I like to wait for reviews. Crowd funds aren't my favorite thing, but hey if it gets some obscure stuff produced, it's a good thing.
I saw the block proto for Motormaster a few months back, but the TF team are really clamping down on production info leaking out so haven't seen anything on him since.
So we need to assemble a team to sneak in to John Hasbro's bedroom to steal the information?
