    The big boys probably didn't want to share the spotlight, since were they given the choice this year anyway.

    TT doesn't show off mainline (Generations/SS) before Hasbro, so we were always gonna have to wait for a Fan First Friday type of event for those anyway.
    Wonderfest usually gives us some Masterpiece and/or other TakaraTomy exclusive reveals, which is what most were expecting this weekend :)

    No crowd, no show from the big toy companies in Japan. Unfortunately

    Yup. It's like how once SDCC was cancelled, Hasbro put together PulseCon.

    You'd expect them to maybe start teasing some of it now since Armada is now as old as G1 was when Armada came out during the 80s nostalgia boom, but guess not.

    Looks like that's what might have happened, unfortunately unlike Bandai,Takara has shown no interest in doing their own virtual shows.

    We got absolutely no Undertaker appearance from Takara, but at the end of the day, we got Speedwagon.

    And so we continue to wait to learn whether MP Raiden, first rumored over a year ago, will even exist.

    He will :) 
    He was formally announced by TT and last year's Generation book had an interview that stated the OG designer is working on the project.

    Yeah, didn't they also say (about his development status) the essentially "He'll be done when he is done"?
