6 new molds would be awesome but i don’t see that happening for a few reasons.

1. they would have to release a new mold every 2 months and as you can see with past MP release dates with the time they are announced that’s very unlikely. If they already have the 6 prepared right now and all they have to do is show it off a little and release it then sure

2. that’s a lot of money to put into at once. Even collectors would have a tough time buying a $60-100 figure consecutively and that’s if it’s hasbro. if it’s takara that’s waaay more expensive. imagine buying soundwave 6 times...holy crap. and that’s on top of the other transformer lines-FOC & Prime

3. which brings me to my next point there is sooooo much going on this year and next year with transformers their hands are way too full. to be honest i kind of wish they’d slow down. as i said before there’s a lot being released already and i’m having trouble keeping up. although i’ve been trying to catch up with past lines of TF source so maybe it’s just me

Yeah, I can only qualify my statement as wishful thinking, I've thought of at least two of those three constraints, and my own wallet would not accommodate six-plus MP figures in a year. Still, there are so many characters I want to see an MP treatment of before the line is inevitably discontinued. I'll just maintain my excitement to see who is next up to bat...

i wouldn’t worry about it being discontinued. they rake in a ton of money and there’s never really any worry of them being shelf warmers especially since they barely last an hour on the shelves. not to mention every pre-order is also filled in less than a day. my only worry is certain characters may not seem masterpiece worthy to Has/Tak. For example as i’ve said having both Sunstreaker and Sideswipe together would be amazing, but Sunstreaker might not have stood out enough for Has/Tak to care. In fact i don’t recall Sunstreaker ever talking i’m sure he did but nothing comes to mind. Plus other than G1 has Sunstreaker ever been in another show? Do i give a damn? :???: hell no :DANCE: he still looks really awesome and compliments Sideswipe really well. Both Sideswipe and Red Alert have been in numerous TF shows so i can see why they were chosen

pre-orders on some sites have been updated..

Sideswipe looks to be early October, Soundwave late NOV/Early December, and Red Alert is late Dec/Early Jan.

I would love to see a Prowl, Wheeljack and Jetfire/Skyfire MP sets that are scaled properly with Optimus Prime. But any G1 MP that comes out and is not a repaint/reissue would be great.

Where's the repaint value?

Nissan deal will give us:
Bluestreak
Prowl
Smokescreen

Expect to see another two or three repaints of Sideswipe. If Takara can expect us to pay $300 for a figure of Prime's corpse, Deepcover and Clampdown are more than reasonable expectations, then there's Tigertracks, G2 Sidewipe etc etc

Coneheads:
Dirge
Ramjet
Thrust

Theoretically, we could get 9 figures from just 2 molds, I'm not holding my breath for all 5 Dinobots, Magnus, maybe, but not until they've milked the MP10 mold to an inch of it's life.

I'm just hoping for either the remaining two seekers in their V2 "de-Kawamori-fied" version molds, and Sunstreaker.

they've done 6 moulds this year: Soundwave, Rumble/Frenzy, Ravage, Laserbeak, Sideswipe and...ummm...Optimus?
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Motto: ""The oldest tricks only work on the biggest jerks!""
Weapon: Nuclear Charged Fusion Cannon
I picked up the Hasbro MP Optimus, Hasbro Thundercracker and Takara MP Sideswipe (Lamborg).

Here's who I'd love to see:

1) Shockwave - Very underrepresented in toy lines considering what a popular character he is. MP Shockwave would sell well for sure.

2) Hound - An MP size Jeep mold would be awesome.

3) Galvatron - I'd love to have an MP Glavatron to put next to my MP Megatron

3) Dinobots - Who wouldn't want MP versions of Slag, Swoop, Snarl and Sludge?

4) MP Megatron - It might be time to make another Megs that's more in scale with MP 10.

I'm praying for a Megatron Version 2, mainly. What would be cool is if they had the initiative to make Punch/Counterpunch.

Not beautiful enough to take priority over a Megatron Version 2 or Galvatron, though.

no arguing there. We are in need of a Megatron Version 2. Galvatron would be freaking awesome too

Weapon: Concussion Blaster Gun
Indeed, a smaller sized Megatron would be great, but if that happens, I hope that it will come with silencer and stock.

Seeing that Soundwave is getting a release, Blaster would be a nice addition too. After all, they already have most cassette moulds done.

I would love to see Galvatron and Shockwave being released as Masterpiece too. As for other Autobots, Ultra Magnus is high on my list.

Time will tell which we will get...

What kind of timeline are we talking about here?
if all of these gets done assuming they come out with 1 or two masterpieces a year... 4 dinobots, perceptor, UM, Galvatron, version 2 Megatron, Shockwave.. and these will all be new molds as there are no repaints for them to be base off of. I think we'll have some time to wait for HAS/TAK

for now I'm just hoping for shockwave.
Looking for:
Black Big Convoy
Botcon Redux Spark (Pyro)

for Trade:
MISB FE Arcee
MISB RTS G2 Laser Prime
MISB Generation WFC Megatron

Out of everyone, I'd want to see an updated Megatron. Prime got one, so the slag-maker needs one too.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Takara mentioned releasing more of them per year (if they decide to keep with that model).

I wouldn't mind if they renew really the most of the old Masterpiece line, that they also make a new and much better Masterpiece Megatron with better legs and arms but most of all no Cosmic Rust. >:oP
