Yeah, it's a valid theory... but until I see the announcement come from Takara, I won't be getting excited.

Vermillion, I have also dropped Joe collecting. It didn't hurt that the bulk of the toys were of no appeal to me in the Retaliation line. And I never saw any Alley-Viper so that helped me avoid buying them.

^ Yeah, I know what you mean. I've bought like 8 figures from the Retaliation line ...

Of everything I've seen, I'm only getting select figures from wave 3, if they ever get released. But I'm anxiously awaiting the soundwave masterpiece at tru and I've bought quite a few TF kreo sets.

So Galvatron may be coming, but he'll be a Tank so they can re-use the mold later for Megatron Generation 2?

I really doubt that. The Masterpiece Line isn't a Generations/What-have-you update a character's design simply to get the remold line.

We certainly haven't seen a yellow Sideswipe as Sunstreaker and I highly doubt that we'll see a tank Galvatron just to get the G2 Megatron repaint afterward.

I'm fairly certain we'll see a new Megatron [Walther P38] much like we got MP-10. Hegemon and Quakewave have really given Takara a starting point to building the better G1 Megatron.

I only repeated the rumors I read on this site discussing the possibility of getting a MP Mirage.

Yeah, I know... but rumors are what they are. And I realize this is no less speculation that everything else in the posted thread above but seems the Masterpiece line is holding to G1.

That's exactly what I thought when I received mine. I might get a Tiger Track though, he looks pretty good.

This is very true.

I still collect Joes, but sadly of late it seems like most of what I want (ARAH updates) are exclusives. So that's a lot of money being spent even with retail charging $10 a pop. I still buy them though.

I'm mostly looking forward to wave 3 and Blind Master.

I've bought the same amount. I've got 4 red ninjas, 1 black ninja, and the Firefly 3 pack so far.

I hope those cassettes have better QC than the Takara one's that I've been reading about.

I doubt there will be a Tank version of Galvatron. Everything about this line now as far where G1 characters are concerned is all based on accuracy to the cartoon.

Yes, we need a new Megatron to go with MP-10.

At this point, I'd be happy with a MP-10 height, highly articulated, better detailed Action Master Megatron just to have the two square off in my display. He's never going to be transformed anyway and Soundwave came with the alt mode... So... yeah. But it'd better be less than fifty bucks.

I just don't feel the need for a new mp megatron. I think the og is pretty sweet and I do have the first mp prime if I need him to "square off." mostly he's on my shelf with these decepticons anyways and the larger size doesn't bother me. He's effin megatron.



I would certainly appreciate a new mp galvatron with cyclonus and scourge. of course mp astrotrain, blitzwing might even be more desired. Id love it if a company like FT tackled some of those bots.
