Ok boys and girls, now we have a side by side with the newly released MP smaller prime, along with the Soundwave and Sideswipe prototypes.

 

In addition to that, someone just posted picts of the same smaller MP Prime and the new MP Ironhide fan product. Which I was not going toget at all since it did not fit in the classics toy line, but it's looking totally on par with the samesize as sideswipe here!

 

Buy the fan made products to keep SideSwipe companynow, or wait a couple years for Takara to release them???

 

Who is up for robbing a bank so we can buy all these freaking toys?

I tried to take things one step further. There is a side by side of the not Ironhide with the classics Ironhide. SO to get the scale of the cassettes that are made for MP Soundwave I attempted to take a classics hound, and match it up with the classics ironhide, standing next to the classics ravage, which is scale with the original cassettes...

 

breath.

 

It's very hard to tell, but they might be a tad bigger than the original tapes.

 

Unclearly, the ravage shown in the display may be a scale size bigger than the original.

My honest fan opinion below:

 

1- I'm in no rush to get the Takara versions. I prefer to get the Hasbro versions because their 75%+ less money than Takara's versions.

 

2- With 3rd party prices being so high. I can't afford them all. So I only get the ones I really want & have been desiring for ages.

 

3- Most the 3RD party TF toys I buy are the ones I know Hasbro/Takara will never create or take 5+years to create. I bought protector & city commander because these will never ever get made by Hasbro. I couldn't wait 5+years for takara to make the riffle guns extension kit for MP-05 Megatron,So I bought the 3rd party one. I really wanted G-1 styled energon combiner limbs for swindle & blastoff,hasbro had no desire to make them,so I bought the 3rd party ones.

The Ironhide and Ratchet look totally awesome, but it's the buttload of accessories that really makes me want them. However, the price is a bit out of the ballpark for me.

 

I also plan to wait for Hasbro on the new MP figures. Honestly, none of these MP transformers have really made me want to go out and overpay for the Takara versions. Even if it seems like it was something I'd like to do at the time, as soon as the Hasbro versions get announced at a much more reasonable price, all I'll think about is all the figures the difference would have bought me. And it will drive me CRAZY!

    • No. There's no way. This is pretty much someone's wish fulfillment list. There has to be another April Fool's Day that happens every June 24th that I'm just not aware of. I don't believe this list one bit. Especially since Legacy is supposed to be a one and done. It's a supposedly a filler line to finish off WFC and begin the next series/trilogy. Crasher? Nope. Hasbro is too scared to use the name...or are they? Road Ranger had his name didn't he? I hope it's not from either Mirage mold though and is instead from Dragstrip. It would be so easy to retool that into a Crasher that even has the front of the vehicle point out back behind her. I still don't see this happening though. Shadow Striker? Most likely Cyberverse and not Universe/OTFCC because then we'd also need Roulette. The Cyberverse character is now the G1 version so it makes the most sense. I don't see it happening. Never mind, it will be ROTF Shadow Striker lol. An upscaled SS86 Wheelie done in black and red. Just what everyone wanted right? Well, I want a black and red SS86 Wheelie and I haven't even seen him yet. Hot Rod? What we would all want is a retool of Override as IDW Hot Rod like the MMC figures but what we'll get is a redeco of SS86 Hot Rod instead. We'll get a redeco of SS86 Hot Rod eventually. It's only a matter of time with that one. What's next to add to that list, a retool of Cosmos or even Origin Bumblebee as Path Finder? Why not both? Blue Cosmos (no not the Blue Cosmos from Gundam) and grey Bumblebee. Maybe Smallfoot as a retool of an upcoming RID 2015 Strongarm too? Core Soundblaster? No shit. There's no way they're going to not do that eventually. Core class Dinobots? No way. I'd love it but no way. Needlenose? The one who's always on the votes but never wins? Hasbro is just toying with us with this one. There's no way they're going to make one now. They want to see the fans cry about it too much now. And he's downgraded from voyage to deluxe to pour more salt on the wounds. Hot Shot? Armada Hot Shot? There's nothing saying it's going to be Armada Hot Shot. When it's been an alternate universe character they always put that in its name. This could be Armada HS, Energon HS, Cybertron HS, RID 2001 HS, Animated HS. So which one is it? It's none of them because it's not happening. Deluxe Junkions with a number denoting future retools and redecos? What so a reissue of the RTS mold? The CW mold? They already made a voyager Junkion from Wreck Gar. I don't see why they'd need to do a deluxe at this point. Maybe for Detritus or Nancy? It just doesn't make sense. Tarn? Yeah no. It just doesn't seem like Hasbro want's to touch the DJD. Although we are getting a nice Jhiaxus though. But no. Just no. Leo Prime? Again, this whole list just sounds like wish fulfillment. There's no way. And then what? We get white, black and purple redecos? Thundertron, Alpha Trizer and GO Prime? Hasbro don't make such deep cuts for redecos and retools. Granted they've started to go pretty deep lately but not Leo Prime redeco deep. Prime Skyquake..............actually, I don't see why not with this one. But they'll probably use either Seeker mold or Jhiaxus for it though. Don't expect the beefcake he was. Although I would like him, Dreadwing and Megaplex who don't break. Not that mine are broken...that I know of... Oh wait. I brushed over the fact that it says leader and not voyager. No way it's happening now. I just completely assumed it was voyager as it made the most sense. For a leader Skyquake it would need to be Euro G1 for Hasbro to most likely do it, not Prime. Armada Megatron? I don't see why not with him either. New mold and all. This one I believe fully. Galvatron and Megazarak redecos too this time. Most of these figures are just too on point for what fans what for Hasbro to do them.  I would love to be wrong though. Well, other than Soundblaster as that's bound to happen sooner rather than later. I really hope I'm wrong. I want some of these so much. Watch I'm wrong on everything but that means no Armada Megatron as I think that one is real.
    • Transformers Velocitron is not even shipping yet, and JTPrime17 flies in with newly leaked listings offering up many spoilers for what is coming our way in 2023. First off, IF you liked what's going on with Velocitron there is Wave 2 coming too. Next, Legacy has lots more in store next year with some new nods to Cybertron, Prime, G1, and Aw yeah, Armada fans will be getting their fix with at least one leader exposed.

    • Toyhax really surprised us with the Conversion Set to change Siege Sideswipe to G2 Go-Bot Optimus Prime.

    • Target's Summer Geek-Out dropped their new Transformers X Tonka Mash-Up set, the "Tonkanator", with official images and details. The G2 Yellow Devastator is rebranded as a Tonka team with logos and all at a price of $104.99 USD. What should be immediately obvious is Hasbro owns both of the brands, so it is an interesting idea that may or may not resonate with fans. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
