As noted by our own Wily William-James in the original piece:
"This is the cartoon accurate deco. Most of the original logos are removed and very vibrant colours. There is also a different face as well as a new smoke accessory. As with most figures in the MP+ subline, this will be a Takara Tomy Mall exclusive item. That means that while it will be available from your standard local importers, it will not be on Amazon Japan to purchase at a discount. So, it's full price of 8,500 yen ($78.53 USD) will be unavoidable. He will be released in the winter."
The item is currently listed at Y9,180 or $90.86US. Tell this guy to try the patch or some nicotine gum because he doesn't believe in quitters - don't forget this amazing piece comes with a pair of unique smoke accessories that makes it stand out from your MP collection like few others.

The facial expressions make him even more, well, expressive.
And I like how they painted the insides of his legs black.

What we do need is a re-issue of Takara Legends Weirdwolf with fixes to the dang hinges that breaks on everyone sooner or later.

I just uploaded a review of the Mp19+ Smokescreen and showcased some of its updates from the original release.
Under the supervision of Nissan, this Masterpiece Smokescreen features a realistic vehicle mode, colored to match his appearance in the animated series. The updated head sculpt recreates the shape featured in the series as well. Smokescreen comes with interchangeable facial expressions along with smoke effects, jamming launchers, and disruptor rifle.

I think you are wrong here. The children who grew up with the Unicron Trilogy are not yet at the age were disposable income is a thing. There are close, though, and in the next ten years or so, I think you'll start seeing a rather large uptick in Armada nostalgia.
