It's tough for all the Ameri-centric peeps to get outside of their own world. Even having been an exchange student and done some traveling, I still catch myself. I think we should all be forced to watch some BBC news and other outside and unbiased sources to know a little more what's going on outside. Lord knows our TV stations are certainly slanted politically. (But that's another can of worms.)
Oh I agree. I've often thought that whilst America as an imperial power has become a great cause of suffering for millions in the world in previous decades, if the American people themselves ever became aware of what was actually going on, the political changes that ensued would be very short and swift.

I also think you'll find that the release order has nothing to do with popularity and more to do with building a case for single use moulds. Sure some characters are more popular that others, but let's face it- when you're talking about the 1984-1986 line and especially the 1984-1985 line, debates about popularity are kind of like debates over which contestant is more beautiful at a Miss Universe pageant. They know that anything, particularly 1984-1985 will sell (with the exception of Skywarp who has already been done as a V1.0 so it's too soon there) and so the smart approach is to go with the most reuses first to cheaply biuld a loyal customer base on a mainstream release.

Wondering how mixing these and the Binal Tech bots would go on a shelf. Hmmm. Guessing the bots might pass, but vehicles... not so much.
Actually if you want to check the scale, compare MP-01 to Mp-10. It was established with MP-04 that the old Masterpiece line was actually designed to be compatible with with the Binartech.
