@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:11 PM)

Also, the face of the black redeco is painted gray.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:09 PM)

To be a little fair, the original was also lacking in more detailed color. The Telemocha Series figure fixed that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2020 - 05:05 PM)

The unpainted face and all the greys make that look like a knockoff.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:01 PM)

One could headcanon this one as such.

@  Otaku : (29 November 2020 - 01:06 PM)

@Bass X0 Weird how they come close, with the likes of Onyx Primal and Nemesis Prime (Universe 2003), but no actual evil gorilla...

And Devastator because I'm a sucker for combiners

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:32 AM)

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

EIGHT WORDS! THATS A RECORD! XD

@  wonko the sane? : (20 November 2020 - 09:08 AM)

So you were hired by a middle easterner! AHA!

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 November 2020 - 11:45 PM)

that's eight words

@  Bass X0 : (19 November 2020 - 03:56 PM)

"I only want to hear one word from you... The name of the guy who hired ya!"

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 November 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It's great how they reference G1 concepts like this one features the harmony from the episode Carnage in C Minor and and Slugslingers featured anti electrons from Grimlocks New Brain.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 November 2020 - 10:01 PM)

Or at least those little story blurbs like Beast Hunters had. Especially for stuff like Selects which tend to exist in their own little side world

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 November 2020 - 04:03 PM)

I got me Legends Soundwave, Be cool if the next Generations toyline had a mini comic with the instructions.

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

Chloechoo on Discord has pointed out that MPM-8 is up for pre-order on BBTS. No character identification as of yet.

 

https://www.bigbadto...onDetails/82275

 

I'm not up to speed; have we had any rumors on who MPM-8 is?

There were rumors that the next three MPMs were going to be Megatron, Starscream, and Jazz. IIRC, the original report stated in that order, while another claimed Jazz would be MPM-8. The pricing on the preorder definitely seems more in line with it being Megatron.

Surely Jazz would be MPM-8 and MPM-9, right?

Ironhide is MPM-6 and he's only $140. not out til November though.

 

 

Megatron would make sense at that pricepoint. Seems a bit harder to do him though since he's never had a consistent look throughout any of the films. Do they take elements from all? Just stick with the first one? What's the best option?

IIRC Prime is mostly based on the ROTF body, and we have two Bees, one from the first movie Camaro, the second in his beetle form.

 

I reckon Megs would be based on his first movie form, though; we just got a Studio version for his ROTF form, and of the rest the first one IMO is much more iconic.

I would really like to see a good rendition of his 2007 body. I wouldn't bet any money on it though. His RotF form seems to have caught on as the body he's most associated with.

There isn't really any distinction between Prime's '07 and ROTF bodies.

 

I hope Megatron is his '07 body, because VW Bee aside, that's what the MPM line has been working with, but I definitely agree that Hasbro seems to think the ROTF body is the standard design for Movie Megatron.

 

None of the rumors have specified anything either way.

I'd prefer a ROTF or DOTM Masterpiece. TF1 body has no crab claw and no shotgun, so I don't have much reason to want it.

DOTM Megatron is my single favorite TF design of all time (what a ridiculous thing to be able to even identify, but you get what I mean) but I'd rather not get a Masterpiece of it who has no friends.

A Megatron that turns into a good-looking alien jet AND has that built-in, telescoping fusion cannon formed from his hands would be awesome.

I assume someone asked them about a Masterpiece Jazz and intended to mean G1, and Hasbro's "wait and see" answer is instead about the heavily-rumored MPM Jazz.

Cordon ● Role ...... Rogo warrior ● The motto of motto "My body knows best" ● Cordoso is a Cybertron fighter who has committed a mistake and is convicted. He was originally an unknown person who was transferred to the Cybatron army by hiring in the battlefield, but was accused by the incidents occurring during training - aiding escape of violent enemies and violent acts. However, as a result of the appraisal, there was evidence of a large damage in his memory area, and the inconvenience of setting "The memory is reset every fixed period" accompanying it was recognized. He was considered to be in a state of blank paper lacking normal judgment power and the sentencing was regarded as extremely light 300 years of remittance to the trouble fixed in the community service activity Cordon is a resident warrior, I was sent to the planet by the soldier's planet and it was decided to work as the only expatriate. The local inhabitants were young, immature and uneasy about him without practical experience, but gradually touched the unexpected capabilities of Cordon and began to glance. Detoxification of iron hub poison, repair improvement of Hoza Electric Generator etc, he solved various problems in a handy manner, and demonstrated the leading skill in everything. Especially, the dish which he acted at the harvest festival was exquisite. Sloppy cynical policeman's robot had become a face of the area once. The secret of Cordon 's versatility is actually the fact that he was a robot born in an extremely old age. The experience of having lived eternity and accumulated through countless environmental changes by reset was acquired as an unconscious talent inscribed in his body system. On the other hand, his existence is also an interest of the enemy. In this place, the blue bird-shaped Destron Gerboy inhabits and attracts him to something. "We <Cobalt Sentry> are looking for a skilled person capable of evil, you think blue looks good, a color that is similar to Cordon Blue (first class) is like that." His dry side is I did not deny that word without saying that word.
