What is entirely new from the ACG HK 2016 story, and brought to us by weibo user pancrazi, is the appearance of another Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece in the form of another Conehead: MP-11ND Dirge! He has the same MP conehead retooling as Thrust and Ramjet with unique tooling for the wings, new weapons and a different paint scheme. While it may be odd to see Takara Tomy toys revealed at a Hasbro toy show, Hasbro Asia will be the ones releasing and distributing the toy in Asia and international online retailers (The Hasbro Asia release is the one that comes with the coin). Check out the images mirrored below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

I'm not as surprised to see Dirge as I am with the fact that OTHER CONVENTIONS LET PEOPLE PICK UP THE STUFF?!?!

I wanna pick up the toys and check them out! I wanna play with them without someone walking up to me and saying "sir please put that back you're a grown man"

I think that may be one of the staff members (very casual attire, I'll give you that) setting up the Dirgesplay.

That's what they want us to think...

"Sir put that back"

"He's playing with it!"

"He's a staff member"

"Where's his badge?!"

"Where's yours?"

"Alright I'm going..."

Usually the reason I wear red tshirts at cons, to be honest. Pretty sure if Hasbro dusts their Victorion cabinet for prints they can clone me straight away.

Catching up post SDCC on news, working two other jobs, in 100F.
Comedy is the way to avoid melting into my chair/floor.

Wow, Dirge dies even in the displays! :lol:
No, seriously, there's a piece of what appears to be his wing hinge lying on the shelf :shock:

They must be in a big hurry to retire the MP11 mold. There were year(s) separating the main trio. Happy as I am to add to the Decepticon ranks, I need a break, man! This year has been waaaay too much. I am drowning.

I hope not. They still got a couple G2 Seekers to make. And with the G2 MP love they've been showing I'm sure they'll get to it eventually.

Not to mention additional Seekers like the other two Rainmakers, the Air Warriors, the Welcoming Committee, etc.

I would buy those up SO fast, but I'm doubtful we get any official MP love for them.

Thanks to Hasbro, yeah, but I wouldn't count on much more than him since all of Acid Storm's toys had been Hasbro-initiated with Takara never releasing their own Acid Storm toys of any kind. Takara's release of MP Acid Storm was a straight import of the (cartoon-inaccurate) Hasbro version with a new ID number sticker slapped on the box.

Oh, it was hasbro only, guess it must have conflicted with TT not wanting to release every repaint out there, wasn't there also an mp sunstorm too? Maybe we should be praying to hasbro for these repaints as opposed to the other repaints we don't want, seriously, there's now winning with this fan-base :lol:

Yeah, there was a Sunstorm from both Takara and Hasbro, but Sunstorm originated from e-HOBBY, making him a Japanese-original character, with his Takara MP directly based on his cartoon deco.

Takara made Sunstorm years before his MPs, and Hasbro made Acid Storm years before his own Hasbro MP, but the rest of the background generic Seekers have gotten no such toy love outside of some Fun Pub toys or some other obscure merchandise.

I'm probably going to get them once I get all my other seekers bought. But it's funny, the coneheads only last 1 season. I think they all died in the 86 movie didn't they??

No, they appeared in Season 3 too, particularly in "Thief in the Night" in which all three appeared together. And again in the Japanese Headmasters cartoon.
