The only one on that list that I want to see is God Ginrai.

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?
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.

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.

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.

Any ideas? Also, G2 Sideswipe looks awesome!

I might be one of the few people orgasmically excited for a G2 Masterpiece, but whatevs.

And with that I mean the goddamn bossmonkey and his mates. This way we might finally get a decent Dinobot.

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.)

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

After seeing this I'm sure we're going to get Diaclone Bluestreak.

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.
