Well, excellent! Ironhide, now this!? Throw in Mirage, Perceptor, Blaster and the inevitable Ratchet retool, and all my favorite Autobots are covered. But, uh.... We need more Decepticons. They are VASTLY outnumbered in every toyline, but ESPECIALLY Masterpiece.

I'm surprised it's not Ratchet, but I'll take one nonetheless. He can hang out with MP Ravage.

Well, they were right about MP-25 through 27.

If Hound is indeed MP-28, Ratchet will probably be 29.

I hope MP-30 will be Megatron finally.

Would they make another gun megatron now though? Plus aside from reflector isn't the only 84' cons left the cone heads?

MP-30 for the 30th? :APPLAUSE:

Btw, expect the sales of the not MP Hound to tank. Ouch!

I do not understand this logic. The Decepticons were vastly outnumbered. They also had precious few unique body types, with more than half the original Decepticon toyline burned through in MP-13, MP-15 and MP-16. Break out the original catalogue's checklist and tick them off. They've even been gifted/bolstered with the addition of MP-09B, MP-10B, MP-13B, MP-23, MP-11S, and Acid Storm. Unless, perhaps you want them to go further and milk the MP-11 mold even further, into more Seekers such as the MTMTE-generics, Hotlink, Bitstream, etc.
In terms of percentage of their roster completed, the Decepticons are far and away ahead of the Autobots.

:DANCE: Well...this was certainly a pleasant surprise to read as soon as I got into work! Whoo hoo. Just like with wheeljack, I can not WAIT to get my hands on this figure.

Thank you- someone else gets it. I've been saying this every time a new autobot is announced.

Wow I did not expect this so soon. I am pretty sure that this is going to be MP hound. I was expecting a retooled Bumblebee into Cliffjumper before this!

The coneheads are 85. The Insecticons and Constructicons showed up on the 1984 season (as did Shockwave) even their toys did not debut until the 1985 model year.

At any rate, they've not been wrong all this time so I'm confident MP-28 will indeed be Hound.

Yeah It would be time to get some cons. We need a Shockwave that isnt 400+$! On top of that Fanstoys is already making a Hound that will probably be superior to what Hasbro/Takara could make.

At least its not a "recolor/retool of Ironhide mold" Ratchet. That will probably be MP-29 :)

If I'm Takara and these Autobot cars and such are making the company good money, then I'm riding this gravy train until it ends on dried up potato mountain. Those Decepticons can Deceptiwait.

Also, heck yeah for some Hound! Hope there's some compatibility for him to carry cassettes.

I'm not sure what you want here. The $400 Shockwave is from FansToys, and if you like them, fine, but you're going to have to pay more for them. Also, if you have a problem with recolors and retools into other characters, you've picked the wrong line to collect. Try MOTU.

I would like them to make Shockwave because the excellent one that FansToys made is only available through the 2nd hand market at a price thats really high.

Im not against retool/recolor, just saying that Hound (a new mold) would be more exciting.

I am also pointing out that a 3rd party cie is making better mp than Hasbro/Takara. There isnt much of a price difference between them maybe 10-20$ at retail.

Whats MOTU?

That would be pretty sweet if he came with a small key and a cage!! Sometimes they throw in accessories for "that one time in that one episode" so why not, right?!
