    Yep, no interest in Lift Ticket or Ironhide.

    I'll wait until the next G1 MP tease.

    Is MPG a sequel to Masterpiece?

    You can repurpose anything you want and it's always valid because these are just toys and their only purpose is to be harmlessly enjoyed. All I'm saying is that the intent of this toy is to represent the anime version of Ginrai, a design that does have some tangible differences with most media appearances of PMOP. If people want to say this is PMOP and use this toy to represent that, totally fine. I'm not saying that's wrong.

    For who though, Bandai fans? I’m a Bandai fan too and collect their Chogokin toys but that’s not on my wishlist of what I’d like to see. It’ll probably be like Transform Element TE-01 with chrome upper legs/gas canisters/smokestacks/grills with a Autobot symbol display stand, poseability on par with MP-10, ball joints(rivets at most if we’re lucky) instead of ratchets, springpins, a preorder window that closes in less than a minute and something that looks photogenic and as good as the stock photos in person and on social media pics but might not be able to hold a pose longterm and might go rag doll loose out of nowhere sometime later. I’m open to seeing what they might do but would be surprised if it turns out differently.

    Make an OP Optimus based on the original G1 toy. MP-44S isn’t it, was never going to be with the mere yellow paint and stickers they thought could pass for it.
    • MP-01: hybrid styling
    • MP-10: hybrid styling but continuing an emphasis on relative scaling in robot mode started by MP-09
    • MP-44: cartoon styling but relatively scaled with previous releases up to MP-09
    An MP Prime styled after the original G1 toy is the only 1 missing now.

    I thought Godbomber was confirmed to be MPG-10 to go alongside Ginrai.

    Am I REALLY gonna have to yell at Takara about when HE’S gonna come out ALONGSIDE STILL continuing to yell at them about Masterpiece/MPG Galvatron?!

    He was, until the 'merge'. But the gap could have been to announce in September for December 2025. There's no reason that the exact same thing couldn't still happen. He'd just be MPG15 and in between we get MP61 62 and 63 as MPG 12, 13 and 14 instead.

    Given their mission statement of bringing in guest designers, I wouldnt be surprised if Macross guy designed a new Prime, as long as he doesn't try to give him sword holsters:D 
    If anything this will be akin to a Fanstoys figures, but a true MP toy based Prime is something we dont have. I dont think the forgot a toy story head fir MP-44s, they knew they had plans already for a true toy Prime.

    I know and have both Missing Link Primes but that still doesn’t change the fact that for MP Prime molds Takara has gone hybrid twice, full on cartoon once yet still no MP based on the Prime that started it all. Would probably have the same proportions as MP-44 but recessed arm details like Missing Link Prime.

    Many doubt this would look good but once Takara does it ironically I wouldn’t be surprised if people 180 and start openly wondering why it took them so long to do it and this is even before the recency/newness bias kicks in.

    Wouldn’t be his 1st time, he did work on Diaclone Battle Convoy and Hybrid Style G1 Convoy.

    Missing Link is literally the G1 toy with articulation. Shin said a masterpiece Optimus Prime based off that toy. Probably what we all thought MP-44S would be. Maybe a MP-44+ is still possible... or a V4 that has all the molding etc. of the G1 toy and a transformation that homages it too.

    Ahh, I get what you guys mean. Thinking like the Don Figura art but more extreme toy which... I'd probably co-sign.
