MP Trailbreaker (with Hoist retool) - He was my first Autobot car (truck), I even went so far as modifying Alt. Nemesis Prime with Alt. Rollbar head (using reprolabels instructions), but the real MP treatment would be awesome, and Takara would never make it (the whole trucks/unpopular in Japan thing).
MP Sixshot - I think the MP line will focus on the first three TF seasons, but it would be great to see this guy, as well as a few headmasters.
I also still want MP's that I think Takara WILL make, like Bumblebee (I know the whole VW issue, but if they can still release G1 re-issues and eHobby re-colours, I think a modified bug is not undoable).
Trailbreaker is a nice idea. He was my second Autobot car/truck back in the day after Smokescreen. Though Ironhide would more likely be made first, I'd think. Though Sideswipe was made before more popular/known season 1 TFs, so who knows?
And about Bumblebee, as I understand it, Sideswipe's vehicle mode is licensed by a company owned by VW, so in theory if TakaraTomy could make that, they should be able to recreate Bumblebee's beloved Beetle mode as well.
(look at us, hoping for a Bumblebee toy. What have you done to us, Hasbro?
