I would think that likely. Takara shows every indication thus far of using the mold to get the most money possible.

Im excited!! So it looks like almost everyone from G1 will get the Masterpiece treatment. I really like it where this line is going. I also hope that Takara can release multiple Masterpieces back to back to back.

Now these are some crazy announcements! This is a great day to be a Masterpiece collector (and hopefully remain gainfully employed. Good job, Takara!

OMG awesome news! And unfortunately I have to preorder them both. XD What about Blue/Silverstreak?

So awesome. Cannot wait for preview images. The classics mold was pretty awesome, so it'll be interesting to see how this can top it while being even more faithful to G1 Prowl.

Other than head molds and color schemes, do you think there will be any other differences between Prowl and Smokescreen? Wonder what their accessories will be... Smokescreen will surely have something related to his G1 spotlight episode (The Gambler, right?). Maybe Prowl will have something related to Chip Chase?

Ironhide / Ratchet seem inevitable both for their popularity and being able to get two great characters from one mold.

The only way they can be more faithful is if they turn into Fairlady Z's

This could get expensive for me quickly.

Awesome, but why does Bluestreak always seem to take a backseat to Prowl and Smokescreen? If they're not Fairlady Nissan Z's then I'm not going to bother.

I got a feeling that bluestreak or silverstreak will be a TRU exclusive like how they got mp-11 thundercracker. Just a thought

I wouldnt count on all the Autobots. Volkswagen, Jeep, and Corvette may not be as willing to license their old school cars to Hasbro. Same thing with who ever owns the Wheeljack or Mirage race cars. Maybe Trailbreaker/Hoist since it was a GM vechicle.

I'd worry a lot more about all the sponsors Mirage and Wheeljack have. Ho boy. :roll:

Trailbreaker and Hoist are Toyota brand trucks, which falls under the Toyota Motor Corporation, or TMC. TMC currently owns the Toyota, Scion, Lexus, Daihatsu and Hino Motors brands.
