A piece of G1 trivia: Smokescreen's canons were actually used this way in the cartoon once for a second or two, in the episode Golden Lagoon.

I was looking forward to Smokescreen the most but now I think that Streak is the looker of the trio. Still happy to have Smokescreen though.

I think Smokescreen has the sexiest vehicle mode of the 3, but Streak has the sleekest robot coloration - he just looks good. I'll probably feel differently once I have him in hand, but Smokescreen's face looks slightly derpy (despite being slavish to G1).

Bluestreak does look the best of all three in both modes. And Bot-mode wise Smokescreen looks the dopiest. His head never appealed to me, nor did his shoulder cannons, here here his chest kinda ruins the look of the bot, makes him fatter and clunkier.

Bluestreak, just looks like a neat robot, his alt-mode kibble isn't as noticeable as with Prowl or Smokescren.

It's really great to see more photos of Smokescreen. But 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....

They haven't been officially announced by Takara yet, it's only some retailers opening pre-emptive preorders. I'm guessing they'll wait until after the release of Smokescreen to make more announcements, since the Fan Choice poll has been the main focus of their MP marketing at the moment.

Smokescreen does look derpy in robot mode, but that's how he looks. I'm still getting him but he'll probably be the one I keep in vehicle mode out of all three. I do hope he still has the standard shoulder cannons and they're just folded out of the way, however, because those big tall ones look seriously silly, albeit cartoon-accurate. Can't wait to get him regardless. I already have some funds sitting in my Paypal account waiting. :D

Looking forward to get my paws on him! I only hate one thing about him: his shoulder canons. they look silly.

after Wheeljack :APPLAUSE: :DANCE: and, (of course we cant avoid him, coz he's everywhere) Bumblbee... :sad: [-( I-) I-) I-) =;

I think the next one who need the masterpiece treatment should be TRACKS!!! :BOWDOWN:

man i SERIOUSLY CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS!

i'm super excited to complete the trio.

i really hope we get a look at magnus, bumblebee, or wheeljack once smokescreen is released.. it's weird that once smokescreen comes out we won't have any photos of upcoming masterpiece figures.

for the longest time it's just felt like we've constantly had figures made, pictured, and waiting in line for release. after smokescreen.. everything seems up in the air. hell, for all we know bumblebee and wheeljack might not be real (though i'm sure they are)

I wouldn't start worrying just yet. If G2 Sideswipe releases and still nothing... that's probably a good time to freak out.

Or not. It's entirely possible that Takara doesn't want to advertise next year's MPs until next year and that could be the reason for the lack of pics and info. Come January I bet we start seeing more about Bumblebee, Wheeljack and Ultra Magnus (plus whoever the fourth MP for next year will be (Megatron 2.0 anyone ;)?).

Of course that fourth MP is probably just Cliffjumper, not that that's really a bad thing. I just really want a proper MP Megs :P.

I totally get it. Not that I'm not looking forward to that sweet Smokescreen figure, but I'm getting a little desperate for some MP-Bumblebee updates myself. (As you can probably tell by the Throttlebot pic.)

And lets hope that the line won't lose steam or get cancelled before they knock out a proper Megatron counterpart to the MP-10!

Shogo Hasui: "This is the back of the robot mode MP-19 Smokescreen. Movement of the waist will be limited to some extent, but those who lowered down the roof as shown in the photograph is close to the design of some anime." (Google Translate)

Referring to Smokes' back in the cartoon, which was different than Prowl & Bluestreak's. It always reminded me of a t-shirt tied around a waist.

"It is a comparison between robot mode of the old toy and MP-19 Smokescreen to be released tomorrow at last. In MP, such as hand-held gun or relocate the tire shoulder and Canon head, shoulder, has become a form of closer to the shape of the anime more." (Google Translate)

Bring on Mp Bumblebee and Mp Wheeljack pics. Where they at? That car mode for Smokes looks real good. The best out of the three. The robot mode is least out of the three. Still contemplating on who should I take out the packaging for display, mp Prowl or mp Bluestreak. I would have bought this Smokescreen if Takara didn't make one of his brothers.

Darn, this confirms he doesn't have the regular launchers like the other two. Oh well, dopey-looking shoulder cannons it is, then! I should start calling him Dopescreen. :lol: He does look a little better posed as opposed to just standing, though. His car mode is totally awesome, so I'll probably keep him like that most of the time anyway.

They did a good job adjusting Smokes from Prowl. I'm still kind of hoping they'll tweak Red Alert just a little bit more.. white thighs, slightly more accurate weapons, but mostly, the shoulders and arms. (Still awesome though!)

I could have done without the "Smoke Tactics" branding on the sides of the rear quarter panels. Also, is it just me, or does the 'non-helmet' type head look a bit odd? It's growing on me, but all the same..?

Probably the best looking out of the three Datsun Masterpiece molds.
Also, gotta love that "SlotFever" on his car mode, referencing the G1 episode "The Gambler". :-B

And "Devcon Oil" likely another reference to the same episode.

It's kind of ironic that they replaced "Bosch" with "Huck" considering that Smokes' partner in The Gambler was named Bosch.

.

It happened in the early days of the MP line, at least. I don't recall the details but MP-01 had an image of Starscream of all people on his wrist communicator, and before long, MP-SS was announced.

MP Starscream himself included a mounting clip for the gun mode Megs that came with MP-10 as part of his accessories. Certain collectors believe this to be a hint that MP Megatron would be the next announcement. Although it was actually MP-04 Perfect Edition OP that followed, Megatron did indeed make the list later on.

The base that came with the so-called Last Shot MP-01 OP included voice clips by the G1 cartoon's Japanese voice actor, and one of the clips mentions a "rebirth." After MP-10 was announced, some took the last voice clip as a hint to mean that OP was being redesigned from the ground up.

As far as I know, these "hints" seem to have largely disappeared from the later MP toys, with MP-10 giving no hint at all that MP-11 SS would be announced. Nor did MP-11 show any clue of an upcoming MP Lambor or Soundwave.

I could be wrong, though.

Ok, even though I asked witch on I should take out the packaging (one), not both, but after weeks of contemplation, I'm deciding to take Prowl out for display. Because I think the cop car Autobot will turn out to be less valuable in the future. He is going to be My second Mp on shelf display :KREMZEEK: . Mp Tigertrack will no long be solo.
