I like the new pic.
He did? I remember Mirage always breaking in half. I remember Prowl, Bluestreak, & Smokescreen's roof and rear windows breaking.

Never ever had an issue with a G1 Datsun breaking. Several friends had them too, back in the day, and no problems either. Guess it's all luck!

So for those of you with HLJ preorders as well, are we expecting any day now?!

Apparently Prowl was pushed back to Sep 28, and Bluestreak to Oct 26.

I like how they positioned the shoulder cannons on each show-accurately, with Prowl being the only one with no cannons deployed. :D

I just wonder, if and when, they get to Hound if he'll be a Wrangler or a Willys. Or if they even mess with him considering the level of awesome that the Binaltech was.

Reflector was released in the first year in Japan, 1985. The US had to wait another year :P

Well, they weren't in the '84 comics, either (which were the first TF fiction ever, coming in before, and even outliving, the cartoon).

Or at least, they weren't part of the main story in the '84 comics (any appearances by them were just nameless background filler or, in Shockwave's case, a cameo lead-in to the 1985 comics)

Mitsubishi would be most accurate. ;) G1 accuracy is the name of the game, so I'm sure he'd be even better than the Alt/BT mold.

These figures are looking so good, can't wait. Looks like the paint issue on Streak's crest has been fixed too, so that's nice.

Not a reader of the original comics. I read Autocracy and liked it, and hear MTME is amazing, so I ordered all the trade paperbacks of that series (and have the Monstrocity TP on preorder).

As seminal/pivotal as the comics are, I'm an animation guy through and through (which would make sense - I was born in '87, and watched Transformers reruns/video tapes until Beast Wars came out). Sometimes I forget people got into this hobby through other mediums. ;)

Beautiful work.

This is how a robot that transforms into a car should look like -- handsome, proportional, heroic, with distinct features.

And the fact that they are based on actual cars makes it even better.

Arrrrrrgggghhhh, just gimme!

These cannot be delivered fast enough. This is like collecting Binaltech again but with the proper alt/robot modes. I love this scale of figure the most.

Can humans hibernate? Can I just sleep until the first one arrives? Yes? That way I only have to wait until tomorrow.....with added bonus that I will miss a load of X Factor crap on the TV...DOUBLE BONUS.

Them colors on Prowl and Smokescreen are smacking me rite in the face in a good may. Takara is the Man for making this masterpiece line better and better. That Bluestreak figure that's not even blue should be that last one to come out in December instead of Smokescreen.

man, i absolutely 100% agree with you.

i seriously cannot wait for these things.. i haven't been this excited for a toy since.... well, i don't know when. i LOVE the look of hot rod.. but he's not put together as well as mp10.. soundwave.. and the sideswipe mold.

when i was a kid, behind prime, prowl's death was the most sad to me. i just loved the look of him, the crest on his head, the door wings, the front of the car being his chest, all of those things are awesome.

yeah.. but you gotta save the best for last. (or at least the most unique)

i really hope he gets released before christmas. i hate when toys get released at the end of january.

hey now, that's a bit discriminatory! there's room for all kinds of robots in the transformers universe!

but i do agree, they are handsome.

hopefully there's no running issues with the mold.

i bought the hasbro version just to hold me over until the takara version was released lol.

it's insane how much better the henkei version looks.. same goes for dinobot. i don't quite understand it.. is it cost? or is takara just trying harder? i know that takara has more competition in japan.. but still, why doesn't hasbro care about giving us the best possible product. i can get over the chrome.. especially when it comes to classic figures. but the paint being so much worse baffles me.

i think they meant the scale started with rodimus, but not hot rod... even theough technically rodimus is the right scale in robot and vehicle mode, hot rod is way out of scale. i think we just need new figures of both and call it a day...

I think Rodimus Prime is fine as-is, but we could do with another Hot Rod
Only thing is they'd have to do some really interesting things with the transformation to make it worthwhile.

But anyway, these are looking amazing. Bring on the release!

I don't think they're actually referring to the scale of Rodimus, but rather "the new unified scale for MPs post-Rodimus", which is MP-10.

This should be a reference to alt modes as the robot modes for earlier MP's (excluding MP-1 and MP-5)such as grimlock and the seekers are of a good relative size(although depending on which comic/cartoon episode you're reading, you can argue that grim should be a good chunk bigger than OP). Mind you this should refer only to the autobot vehicle alt modes as all those vehicles are more or less on the same scale. As a T-rex grimlock should ostensibly be a good chunk bigger, and the seekers/soundwave and friends obviously are madly out of scale for their alt modes, although I find their robot forms scale pretty well. But giving allowances for rodimus being a alien space car, he is the first vehicle of the scale that the autobot MP's seem to have followed since.

It is funny to read their Google translated version. It does sound strange because of it. The translation is saying in scale starting with Rodimus. The second statement is saying that Prowl can fit inside MP10. There are two run on sentences missing punctuation in between. :D

Hot Rod liked to fish for a day, but Rodimus liks to spend the whole weekend.

The Prowl mold seems much better than the Sideswipe mold. Both are really awesome, but the Prowl mode seems much more refined and perfected. I'm really looking forward to Prowl, Bluestreak and Smokescreen. I can't wait to have Prowl in hand in a couple of weeks. The Masterpiece galleries from the past year or so will follow soon thereafter!
