as much as id hate to have another optimus i have to go with either Primal or Lio, so tired of G1 MPs its time to change things up a bit. Beast Wars is about as different as you can get.

Dai Atlas. As cool as a MP Fort Max would be, and could possibly lead to a release out here, which would be nice to see, I wants me some Dai Atlas.

Ugh.

G2 Sideswipe is somewhat ridiculous; I was happy to get Tigertrack, but announcing a 4th version of this mold very much gets on my nerves. How about Soundblaster + Ratbat? We do only have *one* Soundwave mold so far.

As for the fans' choice MP - WTF? :BANG_HEAD:

Do we really need another Optimus or Autobot leader? Whatever happened to *faithfully* assembling the 1984 lineup? How about creating a solid response to FanToys QuakeWave? Or a response to iGear's Weapons and Medical Specialists? Maybe make a v2 Megatron? Or, really, anything else we've been actually clamoring for? Voting in this limited show setting with only Japanese input seems to put the rest of the fandom out, doesn't it?

Sorry to be a debbie downer, but seriously... just Ugh.

man, every time i see MP prowl, bluestreak, and smokescreen together.. my heart skips a bit lol.. they're just so perfectly perfect.

prowl was my second favorite design back in G1.. and i think they captured him beautifully.

i really can't express how excited i am for these. i really think they knocked smokescreen out of the park.. from the front end, to the head, to the shoulder missiles.. it's like they just stuck their hands into the tv and pulled these guys out. it's awesome.

as far as the masterpiece poll goes..

i'm definitely not voting for fort max.. i really had no connection to him as a kid. also.. he's just too big. he's not going to fit in with any of the other masterpiece figures because they're definitely not going to keep him in scale. and if they did.. i, along with many others i'm sure, wouldn't be able to afford it. i mean, hell, hot toys is having trouble thinking of a way to release the bad from TDKR. (or maybe they've scrapped it, i'm not sure)

i would probably vote for lio convoy, big convoy, or rid prime. and, i know it's not a choice.. but i think an MP, screen accurate movie prime would be pretty neat.

i do wish this were more of an open poll. i'd like to see them tackle a combiner (devastator in particular) i think it'd be a nice response to the 5 recently released/upcoming autobots.

but other than combiners.. i'd actually like to see the coneheads.. i think they're a nice choice of beefing up the decepticon ranks. plus.. how awesome would all of the seekers look when displayed.

Call me outdated, but this is my conclusion:

WINNER: Star Saber
RUNNER-UP: Super Ginrai/Powermaster Optimus Prime

In the end, I think what will be the deciding factor is demand. Star Saber is a very rare figure, regardless of what you see his demand go for on eBay. And because of that, I feel that he will edge out the only other realistic top contender (whom I am assuming is somebody Hasbro would want to turn into a MP-01 Powermaster Optimus Prime).

Oh... And I think that Beast Convoy would edge out ahead of Fortress Maximus because of both the Encore #23 piece being Fortress Maximus, as well as the fact that he would have a hybrid size/transformation sequence/quality control issue tied to him.

But yeah... While I would not mind owning a "Masterpiece" Super Ginrai (note the lack of God Bomber/Apex armor), I can see fans adding in a possible "Masterpiece" Victory Leo and/or Victory Saber set being an additional factor to Star Saber's win. :-?

(Plus, if I am right, I have one assumption: Sabr will be so excited that his head explodes. And what will follow it will be a series of fireworks before he regenerates a new head. He will then do an Irish jig with his fellow Star Saber fans, and finish it up with him preordering 1-2 pieces. As in one loose and one MISB. That, and I will screaming profanely at the fact that they are putting out more Encore/G1 reissue pieces, due to the fact I am having a hard time finding a way to get the pieces I want without having to bother with eBay.)

The brother tuckers!! They tease me with ANOTHER Sideswipe re-paint when I haven't even stopped agonising over whether to buy Tigertrack! :BOOM:

As for lack of red...do you think maybe this is actually a sneaky way to bring in the Diaclone black/ Deep cover re-paint? (was there a diaclone Black Lambourghini?) Mind you then his head would be blue...and they have gone so far as to give him the marvel weaponry :-?

It's more than likely an unpainted test shot.

From what I'm being told by people that are at the show, G2 Sideswipe has a very G2 looking open mouth. I'm trying to figure out if he has another gun strapped to his back as well.

Ok...Call me OFFICIALLY confused. 8-}

I thought the whole reason for MP-10 was to "reboot" Masterpieces so they can all be in scale/size with one another?? ...hence Sidewipe, Soundwave, Prowl, etc. Most of these listed to vote on (with the exception of all the Primes) SHOULD be freaking HUGE or smaller compared to current MP's... Just saying IF the intention of the line is to be in scale with one another.

I love me some Prime, BUT come on, half the freaking list are PRIMES!!! Ugh... I say "F" the list, they should start 1) Release ONE new MP a quarter, keeping it even so TWO Bots and TWO Cons a year. 2) They should start releasing G1 Combiner MP's...Biggest member lead in then one member per quarter, doubling up in one quarter with two. My first vote for MP combiner would be Stunticons... seems like every other Team has had rereleases EXCEPT the Stunticons...SOOOOOO tired of Bruticus, Arialbots and Devestator :BANG_HEAD:

The G1 Springer toy had a green face, and throughout the cartoon it was mostly (if not always) gray. I thought Takara would go with the green face on TG スプラング to make it stand out more compared to the Hasbro one. Since their Classics have more G1-accurate (sometimes cartoon accurate) paintjobs and all, but they didn't. Glad I got the Hasbro Springer, because this time the Takara version of that character isn't that much more more striking paintjob-wise. Knowing myself I will eventually own both versions anyway... :-? :P

I like how recently I was thinking about MP's and who could be next.

I thought it would be cool to do Beast Wars characters.
But the figures and the models in the show were exactly the same!
Just like Energon/Cybertron. The television models were based on the figures.
Look at Transformers GO! Same thing.

Isn't that the point of MP's? To look exactly like how they were visioned in the t.v shows and comics?

Taking time out to make an MP Primal, Cybtertron/Energon Prime would be cool, but also pretty pointless to me at this time.
Especially with the recent releases of MP's. Let's get most of the G1 cast first!

Then we can focus on the other characters.

I wouldn't mind if Armada Prime was made into an MP though. Considering his figure wasn't up to par with articulation or paint apps either. Imagine a fully articulated super mode Armada Prime? I like the sound of that.

But seriously... I love Optimus. But There's so many other characters that deserve an MP!

I don't know about Fort Max either. I'd only be satisfied with it if it was close to the true scale. It would obviously be too big though.

It should be between God Ginrai, Dai Atlas, and Star Sabre. I don't know who I'd pick... they all would look pretty insane.

More likely, yes. I just wondered since the rest of him is already black, as in the right colour. Don't mind me, I just have a Diaclone obsession ;)
