Reading between the lines, I think the overlords at Tomy must have slashed the Transformers department's budget now that the movie-inspired good times have all but ended.
Hmm, yes/no. Yes, because the overall boon of the live action stuff as a general popular trend seems to be fading, but no because the boon of the live action stuff quit pushing its own merchandise back with DOTM.

With the masterpiece line, I think it's more of trying to see how many golden eggs they can get the goose to lay at once rather than trying to get as many as they can before the goose dies.

AT THE SAME TIME, I don't blame them, really. If they can keep raising the prices without significant sales losses, they have every justification to.

Takara Piranhacon teaser

Only dates shown that I can read say 2019, so I guess the full set comes out this year? Or maybe just these two, and the rest next year?

Bluestreak and Ratchet, too. Neither of whom do much for me. I wish they'd give the doc a bit more colour in his pallette for once. Bluestreak isn't bad but I already own several "not bad" Bluestreaks...

I think each Seacon is coming out individually, since these two have separate (very high) prices. I do like the Seacons, but not enough to pay Titan prices for the whole lot.

Masterpiece...Lioconvoy? Wasn't expecting that so soon. Looks pretty neat though.

Yeah, this one was unexpected. How do they get to Lioconvoy but still haven't done a Galvatron yet?

Was not expecting Lio Convoy as the next new-mold Beast Wars MP, but I guess because it's a Convoy, I shouldn't be that surprised.

Looks alright enough. I'm sure it'll cost $280 or so, though.

Now that they're making his Maximal counterpart, I'm half-expecting a BW Galvatron before a G1 version. It sound silly, but you just wait!
