He sounds like the type of guy I like to imagine is on the Transformers development team. Great attitude!

I agree... no way combiners are coming out anytime soon. They're definitely looking to test the waters with FOC Bruticus, which from what we've seen so far, sadly sucks :/

As a Masterpiece collector I'm very happy with this interview. It sounds like TakaraTomy are finally figuring things out for the Masterpiece line as a whole. The past toys have been a bit disorganized to say the least. Shogo Hasui seems to be the right sort of guy to be on the Masterpiece team. I look forward to the continuation of this line, with smaller Masterpiece toys at smaller costs (please bring Sideswipe under the $60 mark).

Cool story bro,

Don't think it's going to happen. MP10 Optimus was expensive as sin. How is that going to be profitable? Sure they may bring out 2 more but after that sales will fall and the line will be cancelled because the collector's are simply broke.

I say make G1 Legends Optimus and Megatron in voyager scale and then we'll talk about a masterpiece line.

The guy knows what the fans really wants! But if he could only show us a concept of any MP combiner they plan to put up in future then I will believe him but at this moment I still doubt the MP line. >:oP

So Sideswipe will be smaller. He'd better be a damned site cheaper as well.

This is a pretty cool interview with a lot of promise. And we know what the next MP is, I just hope the prices line up with the size.

Man, I hate being so broke!!! If they are going all-in with the MP line, I would seriously consider selling all my Binaltech/Alternaty and 3rd party figures, even a couple of my childhood G1's, and become MP exclusive. Love it! Need second job!

Don't joke about such things,next thing we know you'll be talking about a MP Metroplex, Omega or Trypticon! :BOOM:
Then we'll talk about why you jacked the price up to $275 when MP4 was $199 and he's a much larger figure. :???:

if they do decide to go full throttle and make the g1 cast in mp scale with one another i can easily see myself collecting that and only that forgoing everything else. my only concern is time....i dont want to be 80 before my mp collection is complete :HEADHURTS:

So does this mean that MP Sideswipe will be smaller than MP10 in order to remain in scale?

It might be like that since the rate is roughly 1 or 2MP figure per year :BANG_HEAD:

As much as it would drive me nuts to only get a handful a year, at least it would make the whole venture that much more affordable.

If they make them in scale they might release a couple at a time if they are small and cheap enough.
