When are we going to start seeing some photos, or even just silhouettes, of Wheeljack and Bumblebee??? It was almost 6 months ago that they were announced, and since then we haven't seen or heard ANYTHING about them at all....

Agreed.

The MP poll has nothing to do with the main MP line, but it is starting to get a little worrying nothing of those 2 has surfaced yet :-(

Seriously though, if Star Sabre ends up with those curves... :DANCE: :APPLAUSE: :BOOM:

Finally a real Autobot leader! Star Saber getting the MP treatment is just gravy on top!

Sexy. If he ends up looking this good I need to ensure I have funds for this.

This series is not something that particularly interests me, so I was planning to skip this figure.

But if it looks this good, I'll definitely reconsider!

I still need a GEEWUN Starsaber. This is nice too...

Let's just hope that if it's amazing, Hasbro will have the sense of mind to release it domestically, at least promoting it as the IDW character.

I would put the odds of Hasbro making this figure for the West at about one-in-a-million. It wouldn't make much business sense.

Can't wait to add this Mobile Suit: Gundham figure to my collection!

I agree. IDW would have to make Star Saber a major villain in the next year to start showing interest in a Western release.

Even if MP Star Saber turns out to be an awesome piece, the relative inability to play with it wold hurt a US release. After all, regular Transformers fans (kids who watch Prime, teens and adult who focus on the IDW comics, and moviegoers) most likely are not a strong enough market for a US masterpiece release.

The more I look at it, the more I hope that it would somehow incorporate parts that allow one to attach G1 Victory Leo, in case they weren't planning for a MP version of him.

I doubt they will. If anything, this is their segue into milking collectors for a new Victory Leo. Although, TakTom has been known to throw curveballs in the past. We might just see Star Saber and nothing more. At this point, no one knows. Once we see the final product, we'll know if there's any connection point system or if it's just one solid, single piece.

And even if it would connect to Victory Leo, where are people going to find one now? It'll just get the KO makers firing up their molds and the fans will be polarized all over again. It'll be a mess.

If TakTom's smart, they'll just make him as a one off kinda deal and be done.

If they include Saber and the Yuuki No Brain at Masterpiece quality then I'm sold.

i like this as this will give people like me who don't have a star saber in their collection one to fill in that spot -seriously this is the kind of thing they need to do we have a million megatrons and optimus prime figure and characters that don't have that many should be ones that we demand
