Rumours for Upcoming Transformers Movie Masterpiece Toys Including Jazz, Megatron and Starsceam

Postby william-james88 » Sat Jun 30, 2018 9:39 pm

It has been a while we had some fun rumours to share with you. This one here is more believeable than most since it comes from the same source that first brought up MPM Ironhide a year ago and it does have characters Hasbro has alluded to in the past (like MPM Starscream). Ok so without further ado, we have from Baidu rumours of the upcoming MPM releases and they are:

MPM 08 Jazz
MPM0 09 Megatron
MPM 10 Starscream

Another user has it as
MPM 08 Megatron
MPM 09 Starscream
MPM l0 Jazz

So of course, the numbers are not the same but the same characters keep coming up. Hasbro had mentioned the possibility of an MPM Starscream in their New York Toy Fair interview.

MPM 07 is presumed to be Bumblebee from the upcoming film.

And of course, this could all turn out to just be untrue, so take it with a grain of salt.

Jazz may as well be the HA figure without the seats, but with more sleek proportions. I really hope Megatron is his MV1 design since we never had any good version of that appearance. And Starscream...I presume it may be for Bumblebee, but maybe they may do a slightly better version version of the Leader.
Action Figure Wishlist:

MPM-04 Optimus Prime
Studio Series Jazz
'07 Voyager Megatron
Studio Series Brawl
DOTM Deluxe Barricade
Studio Series Blackout
'07 Deluxe Bonecrusher
Titans Return Legends Bumblebee
Music Label Soundwave
PRID Deluxe Ratchet
PRID Voyager Bulkhead
Arms Micron Breakdown
PRID Dreadwing

Working on a fan film. Support would be neat!

I wouldn't be surprised if Meagtron and starscream, at leas these ones, will be the ROTF versions, as presumably they'll be out next year, aka 2019, the 10 year anniversary of the 2009 movie. We can assume that Has/Tak will have something planned for that.

So far all the Movie Masterpieces have been of the 2007 Movie, including Bumblebee taking the 2008 Camaro Concept. If that trend continues... ho boy for Megatron.

Well I mean, Optimus had the matrtix come with him, so I'd say it's closer to his RotF model, but your point still stands. Can't say I'd complain about a good looking movie 1 Megs. (Good being subjective because we all know there are MANY differing opinions on the movies.)

How big and expensive would Starscream have to be to match MPM scale?

Would it be bigger than the Leader class figure they reused as a Masterpiece before the MPM series officially began?

I hope not.I always got the sense the Masterpieces toys were supposed to be the definitive edition of the character.Sharing engineering and ideas is fine,but the masterpieces should push even beyond.

I hope its something more in line with design though of Bumblebee or Barricade than the Movie Masterpiece Optimus Prime.

But I'm excited for all of these!

Yeah, that MPM Optimus didn't really do much in terms if pushing boundaries. It instead showed how easy it is for a good design to have piss poor execution when turned into a physical toy. It's like no one even tried Transforming that fogure once it was finally done.

There was that OSKO VW Bee prototype that we saw a while back that wasn't MP-21 so it's likely Hasbro will be bucking that trend very soon (and maybe had planned on doing so earlier this year before the movie and all figures were pushed back to late fall and winter).

I'm not sure you could push boundaries too much farther in toy form with Optimus' original movieverse design, aside from the splitting tires (and adding an additional point of articulation to the struts the paldrons are on, if they don't move at the base end). Because some of it goes into the same territory as Bumblebee's @#$%ing license plate - bending and unbending during transformation in a way that can't be replicated on a toy. Like, his "ribs" are formed from his truck grille, his paldrons are formed from the sides of his cab where the doors are like on the toy but they hinglessly bend into a different shape...

I would hope for a proper MPM Starscream toy of his 2007-2011 design, instead of just the redeco of the HFTD Leader mold. That's a decent mold to be sure, but it's not perfect. Most notably, it doesn't have his engines end up on his back like they do on the actual movie design. And since you frequently see Starscream using those engines for robot-mode flight... Yeah.

And I definitely hope that Megatron's first-movie design is the first of his on the docket for the MPM treatment just so that we can get some good looks at his altmode and his weapons!
Looking for:
Nemesis Breaker's Arms
ROTF Jetfire Weapons
ROTF Optimus Prime's feet, windshield/chest panels, outermost leg panels, right fuel tank plate
Cybertron Safeguard (Vector Prime's Mini-Con)
PotP Starscream gun
Vector Prime's Cyber Key
RID Ruination/G1 Bruticus/KO chestplate & helmet

They could certainly use the design template for his engineering, but the molding would require a complete reworking and downscaling to get him right. It would be a good opportunity to fix some of the hiccups on the transformation.

I'm seriously looking forward to how they approach Megatron. Each of his iterations has been a really cool piece of design work.
