    I figure that's got to be the reason, or something similar. It's not like Takara can break it's own street dates, lol.

    Thanks dude. So I guess we will be getting combiners. Which would be awesome. I actually googled it and a whole bunch of various Japanese combined robots came up but was unsure.

    Hmm… if this is Raiden I might have to actually get a masterpiece (assuming this is good). I doubt Raiden will be made in mainline anytime soon. Just hope they do individual releases for the limbs.

    “Master Piece Gattai”?!?!?
    Gattai means combination. Definitely gotta be a line dedicated to giant combining robots then.

    To me it sounds like the expensive metal super robots, like Getter

    "MPG" = "Masterpiece Gattai" ("Gattai" being the common term in Japanese media for a combining robot)

    Would give them a sub-category similar to MPM under which to sell combiners. The benefit of which would be Takara not being forced to keep them in scale with other MPs.

    Was coming here just to say this...
    With the Google translation tip of Gattai and how MP is commonly used for this brand... It's gotta be this.

    At the very least, it's some line based on combination

    And its a sub-brand. Meaning if that's the case they've got big plans for it.

    Goddamn my wallet weeps.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the tweet is redone at 11 PM EST (noon JST), that's what when tweets tend to come.
