TakaraTomy would need separate licenses for those models tho. Also, Volkswagen itself does not own Porsche, rather both Volkswagen and Porsche are brands that fall under the same parent company called Volkswagen Group. Coincidentally Lamborghini also falls under it. I'm sensing a trend here. :-?
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- TR Galvatron right arm (the gun one)
- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

Same thing, Volkswagen Group is the current official company name, like The Coca Cola Company is the legal name for Coca Cola.
We call Hasbro Inc just Hasbro, doesn't mean that they're two companies and one of them is the parent company.

And to expand on that. Volkswagen does not directly own Lamborgini, it is owned by Audi, which in turn is owned by VW. The thing is, all those companies still function as their own companies with their respective owners being able to veto decisions on product.
So if Porsche does not want to sell their license, Volkswagen can't make them.

While that may be true, Porsche is not as hard a nut to crack as VW. Their main concern with licencing back in the BT/Alt days wasn't so much with war toys as with reflecting the lifestyle they try to represent. A straight 935 Turbo with their racing layout should be fine. Probably. Hopefully.


It better be.

If I understood the automatic translation correctly, Hasui said that you need to open the helmet and tilt back Spike's head when you transform the exosuit.

MP-21 Spike's Exosuit (Minor Update)

Postby Autobot032 » Mon Mar 24, 2014 4:49 am

Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
Takara designer Shogo Hasui has been teasing bits and pieces of the upcoming Masterpiece Bumblebee, and with each reveal, we're there to keep you updated. This newest tease is no exception.

As we all know, by now, Bumblebee comes with his human companion, Spike, in his exo-suit. Hasui shows a new and up close image of Spike's vehicle mode. According to Seibertron.com member Cyberpath, the translation says:

Bumblebee, and Spike, will see release later this year in November. Preorders are open, now.

Would have preferred a reduced price bumblebee with other accessories instead of an exo suit. I'm on the fence, but I'm mostly on the side of the fence that wants MP BB.

Sorry, but still would have prefered the wheels on the arms to beef this MP BB figure up. Just too much in the feet, which the animation model did not have SO much of. His G1 toy battle mask would look 10 times better also.

Well, I'll be honest, a little disappointed with the backpack. But it was to be expected, and I can't think of a way how they could have avoided it without making it a separate piece and still retaining the size and show accuracy of the rest of the robot.

Still OK and glad I pre-ordered.

True, but if they're going off the scale guide from the cartoon, he should only come up to the front bumper on Prowl's chest. I imagine they just don't have a lot of room to tuck panels away without making the roof a mess of panel lines.

While not a popular move and defeatist to the point of MPs, I wouldn't have minded a car-part shield if it'd give us more show-accuracy to the bot. :)

The Backpack is fine, all the MP cars have some backpack action. I am just glad they figured out a way to not have to 'cheat' and do like a double chest with like another car roof hidden in the alt mode.
