I don't know how many in the 3P threads read the official speculation thread, but one of the more reliable and consistent "insiders" that posts just gave some interesting news. Slave IV is sharing some news from a source that is networked with TT and it doesn't look good for fans of TT carbots. It looks like hopes of a Jazz, Sunstreaker, or Cliffjumper from TT can be forgotten unless something "very major" changes at TT. This basically suggests that those three characters will never be produced by TT in MP form. Now, the important question is, will FT step in and fill the void for three highly desired and highly requested MP characters? It seems certain now that TT will not touch that territory, which leaves it wide open for a talented 3P to come in and stake their claim. These three are arguably G1's MP most wanted and we have yet to receive a decent version of any of them. Can FT step up to the challenge and make this dream a reality in 2017 with renders and prototypes? Can they deliver full releases for these amazing figures in 2018? Word has been that FT doesn't have current plans for any of these characters. Maybe they weren't a priority before, but is it now time for plans to change?
