    I think I'd rather see an Overlord than an Overload. If we get an Overload figure any time in the near future I'd expect it to fit with Commander Armada Optimus.

    Thank you for this info- I was trying to find out about it. I have looked into the MPG packaging more in depth and saw the TF logo is indeed used, albeit not in its traditional form (red-white-blue) which I will miss going forward, with the newer MPG series packaging.

    Wow this thread is quite something. Read the whole thing today and I may never be the same. :) 

    I'm personally hoping that going forward they change the MPG boxes to be like a hybrid of both styles of box to try and make fans of both happy. Maybe that might happen after God Bomber. Actually it may happen for Super Ginrai since his packaging is not finished yet.

    And of the black Ironhide repaint and Deepcover FINALLY show up as MPG releases that will be very strange.

    I would have preferred MP to carry forward and MPG to be dropped but it sounds like that isn't happening so I will need to adjust expectations.

    Oh Overlord is happening before Overload for sure, hell I don’t think Overload will happen despite him being an Ultra Magnus even. He just didn’t do enough.

    Overlord though? With them going all out for God Ginrai I can’t imagine they don’t go just as hard on Overlord when it’s his time.

    I count myself as a TT MP purist … at first I was frustrated, but tbh I’ve lost interest in the Masterpiece line a while back. We are probably a decade away from completing season 1 and 2. It will never happen.

    TT has also done some really weird design decisions ever since going all in on toon look. TT lost me on the MP line.

    That's a Hasbro line and is unchanged by this news.

    With the current rate we're going, maybe it's better for MP to die so it doesn't get squandered by whatever comes out next :p

    No new G1 mould then?

    Sigh, well at least they got their money's worth out of that Trailbreaker mould.

    :deadhorse: 


    Glad the MPG rebrand = MP continuing as normal though (and for peeps who wanted a black Ironhide that they got one.)

    For me waiting on new G1 characters, you can tell the line's not changed much when the first news you get under the MPG banner is *CLASSIC* old school MP territory. As in, FRUSTRATING old school territory. :D

    MPG = MP Greatest hits. They could have started the line strong with G1 Galvatron, but why do that if you can repaint a couple of existing molds?

    because that takes a whole lot of work? It's almost as if repaints happen a lot in transformers or something

    And that confirms the leak about Diaclone Ironhide, but interestingly enough there was (to my knowledge) nothing leaked about a red Hoist. But it's a hopeful sign for the rumoured MP(G) Jazz.

    Bit surprising to see the Vanette mould used after all this time. A big negative is that while there's a 3rd party upgrade kit to move the hip kibble to the torso, this appears to be unaltered. But then TT rarely if ever correct errors on their MP's at this level.

    Not sure I'm going to get Ironhide (red Hoist definitely not). Back when the Ironhide mould was released I kept him in the box because I preferred to have the Diaclone deco, but that time is well behind me now. Maybe I'll get it, but it will likely cost more than I'm happy with for an old mould that I already own.
