    If you have the recent Generation Book, you (or anyone) should also submit the pages where both Hasui and Kobayashi spoke of MP22 to Sydney as well. I know someone translated it earlier, but it was only partial. I'm sure it's very interesting to know the full story.
    Agreed.

    Hopefully, we'll be getting the long-speculated MP Combaticons eventually.

    If I'm not wrong it was briefly mentioned in one of the interviews linky I posted earlier.

    Interesting, but turns into a new way of harassing my financial stability. Yet don't see the point since it is an on going line currently therefore it would be outdated very soon. Although it could have an idea of what's next beyond Ultra Magnus and Starsaber then it would be worth.
    Any way, I simply don't think it is an item that calls me at all

    A guide book would be really nice to have if ;

    A: it had English translation or an English version
    B: if every figure that was in the collection was in it.


    Therefore I will have to wait and see if they do editions or if maybe another comes out at the end of the line.

    OR (I wish)

    They put in it every figure they plan on making so we could get a sort of checklist catalog like we had when we were kids..

    I wont hold my breath though.

    I doubt it will come out in English. Also I think this will be a volume set. They'll probably issue volume 2 with MP-23 to whatever.

    Hey guys, I'm glad some of you think I can be of any use (or remember me at all, hah)
    I received a nice PM from Liampope but unfortunately I don't think I can translate the whole book. I'm getting the book anyway and would love to share some of the contents though. I really can't say more at this stage. Let's see what happens :) 

    I didn't get the book...if anyone has it please PM me.

    ooh thanks for the links...good to see them again.

    I think in terms of priorities people probably are most curious to read anything about news for new releases or the future of the line followed by interesting decisions made during the design process. Thanks for making these contributions to the community.

    I did some translations before as well, so I coud translate/crosscheck a few interview pages when I have the time. If people supply clear hires scans then I don't mind doing a translation now and then.

    Great, thanks to both you and Syd! I'm happy to create some high-res scans when I receive it if no one else beats me to it. :)

    I hope someone would be able to post scans of the Masterpiece Guide's MP Star Saber pages. I just love surprises!

    I just saw the new prototype scans of MP Star Saber. And there's a compartment on Saber's torso which is supposed to store the Brain of Courage within. This can only mean one thing: Masterpiece Star Saber might include the Brain of Courage after all, despite the fact that it hasn't been confirmed.
