Looks like another good addition to the Masterpiece line. I wonder when we will get more of the first season Autobots like Jazz, Hound, & Sunstreaker?

There are options Foss these out there.

Options are out there, yeah, but many want official. Official tends to do it better, and cheaper, than 3rd party.

Not anymore. Prices have leveled out pretty even, and quality is better in many cases.

Official is just a word that has lost its meaning. Don't let it keep you away from amazing transformer figures.

I appreciate wanting "Official" heck I rely on it that is how I often get 3rd party toys - after the official ones come out the previous 3rd party ones tend to fall off a cliff in terms of pricing.

I expect Maketoys version of Hound will similarly suffer next.

Unless I'm mistaken - and I suspect I am - Isn't the reason most of the currently undone Season 1 bots are undone is because they can't get the licensing for their vehicles yet?
Then again, that doesn't explain Sunstreaker who's vehicle mode is supposed to be the exact same as Sideswipe's.

I was always a little shocked they never made a Sunstreaker. Especially after Wheeljack came out, as Takara, with very little adjustment could probally have made a nice Sunstreaker retool.

Granted, the fan base would have had issues with that, and rightly so, but that has never stopped them before.

I don't think a Wheeljack to Sunstreaker retool would have worked out too well. Maybe for Generations - and, heck, they done that in Combiner Wars - but Masterpiece is supposed to represent the cartoon models to the letter, and Wheeljack and Sunstreaker just look too distinct for that imo.

Plus a new Sunstreaker mold would open up a ton of diaclone repaint possibilities. Which, truth be told, is kind of what I'm starting to get into Masterpiece before. Because I'm a freakin' weirdo.

For some of us official is all that matters. Maybe it's lost meaning to those of you that don't mind owning knockoffs and bootlegs, but to the rest of us it's everything. I'll always support the companies that actually own the licenses over the ones that have stolen the likenesses.

And I don't know what you mean by the quality being "better in many cases", I've yet to see a single knockoff that I thought was superior to a Hasbro Masterpiece. Don't bother listing any to try to prove me wrong, I've seen them all, my opinion stands.

They're talking about third parties rather than knockoffs.

I still feel Infernos transformation is some form of dark magic.

Third party figures are a kind of knockoffs. They just knockoff visual IP designs rather than physical ones, regardless of how many artistic liberties and/or adjustments they may or may not make to said visual IP designs.

As far as I knew the definition of a knockoff - at least in the context of Transformers - was to try and replicate an already-existing toy. Third Parties stand distinct from that in that they are completely original toys, just based on existing designs (unless it's something like that fansproject glacialord thing)

"IP infringing item" would probably be the most apt description for a third party product, and which can also apply to the classic dollar store/outlet store "bootleg" kind of knockoffs.

That's fair, but I still feel there is a clear definition that exists and should be acknowledged - especially as they're two very different things and, in the context of Transformers especially, would be important to not classify as the same thing (though they can come under the same umbrella).

Heh. I'm a little sad I have to wait till Grapple comes out to experience the "magic".

Not sad enough to actually get Inferno, and set aside Backdraft, but a little sad all the same.

Agree with you on this. If you want the official owners of the IP to produce what we want, we need to fork out our money to them first. Just imaging buying a 3rd party Fortmax costing like US$1000 when an official would cost only US$100. Same with Devastator. Compare that to the 3rd party ones.

even takara's versions seem to run cheaper than third party and most third party figures dont look right in the first place only a very few look so close to masterpiece for example a company called Transform and rollout has a Jazz figure thats sure to make you drool ;)

You know, I TRULY hoped the very blatantly off-topic discussion regarding 3P's and KO's and what not would die on it's own, but I guess not.

So here I am, telling you all now, to keep it about Masterpiece Inferno.

I'm also going to say this, SOME OF YOU SHOULD REALLY KNOW BETTER BY NOW.
