Default MP-40 - Targetmaster Hot Rodimus/Hot Rod

Seibertron is reporting that MP40 will be Targetmaster Hot Rodimus

Quote:
Courtesy of site sponsor TFSource, we have news of the next figure in the Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece line - after MP-39 Sunstreaker, it looks like we'll have a third iteration of the younger leader of the Autobots: MP-40 Target Master Hot Rodimus!

Currently listed for a February release, and priced around 90 USD, we do not have any images for the toy. How it will differ from MP-28 is yet unknown, too, so stay tuned for more updates as they roll in!

Transformers Masterpiece - MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rodimus is the latest preorder from Takara Tomy. Image is a placeholder, official images and more details to come!

Update from TFW2005 (and more pics on their site):





And via Twitter a guide to where the colours are based on.

Unless he comes with his trailer, I doubt I'll even bother. But watch all the sales for the last one pop up I reckon

I want to think this is a mixup with LG45 - also Targetmaster Hot Rodimus...
But they did just create an MP Targetmaster gun for Artfire

I have to agree with Ralph, this feels like it should be a reissue or a plus/lettered number not a new individually numbered MP.
So what do we think it will be, a TT version of Hasbros version of MP Rodimus Prime w/Offshoot, a reissue of MP-9 Rodimus Convoy including Offshoot from the Hasbro release, a reissue of MP-28 Hot Rodimus w/Offshoot from the Hasbro Rodimus, or entirely new molds?
Personally I'm going to say it will be TT MP-9 with either Hasbro's Offshoot or a redeco/retool of Artfire's Nightstick.

Edit: Oops, I missed that it said Hot Rodimus and focused on the Rodimus part, guess it will be MP28 with a version of Offshoot then, damn I hope TT arent going to keep doing these reissues with a new hat, I dont need a second MP28 :/

I personally suspect it'll be a mp hotrodimus redeco using toy colors with a modernized target master over the OLD rodimus prime mold, the price all the websites are reporting are a hint of that.

I like the idea but leaves me miffed, we could of had a mp megatron redeco (silver/black), could have been dinobot, hell we still have shockwave to redeco into shackwave.

Guess I'm just salty I don't get to have a target master for mine

Oh well least you won't need reprolabels for that toy look now

I wouldn't mind another MP-28 with a Targetmaster if TT fixed the altmode ground clearance issue (slightly larger wheels?) and improved on the chest area. New accessories such as Daniel's hoverboard would be nice.
