One of the tweets mentions that MP20 might be a car license and then later that there might be a possible vote from different Convoys

Those surely aren't the final colors, the weapons are just plain test-shot-grey. I'm not sure what the spikey bits are all about, but I dig the SMG and the... ENGINE GUN (Axelerators, yay). LOVE IT. Now, go get the colors right so you can SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY. :grin:

Damn, all are cool choices, but I would rather have more G1 characters.. And not... another prime.

Though, Star saber or Galaxy Convoy would be sweet.

Well, still hoping that the actual MP20 will be Megatron v2. At least this shows that Takara isn't sticking to some predictable mystical grand plan and anything is possible^^

I could go for a masterpiece Primal for sure. Beast Wars is what got me back into Transformers.

I really can't decide. God Ginrai/Powermaster Prime would be epic as would Optimus Primal, Lio Convoy and Big Convoy.

May I have all 4 please? I'll pay top dollar :D!

edit: On second thought, cancel God Ginrai/Powermaster Prime. It's about time Takara popped their MP Beast Wars cherry. Bring on the beasts!

Possibly, unless he's not larger than the G1 figure. My guess is he'd be far smaller, but way more show accurate and articulated. No way they'd stick to scale on that one.

Well, that's just Prime! And every other supreme Autobot leader.

Oooh... it looks like Japan has been reading the Generation 2 comics. He just needs a row of bullets going across his chest and a really, really ticked off expression.

:lol: pretty much!

Now that I think about it, perhaps what they're really looking for is a possible alternate direction or way to branch out for the MP line, but they want to play it safe and see what the interest levels would be and what the most popular lines would be for them to go with. G1 is expensive since there are licensing issues galore. None of the other lines have that problem, so if they started doing any series other than season 1 of G1, no more royalties to car makers and thus higher profits.

I could get behind this idea, but I don't want them to abandon season 1 of G1 just yet.

On one hand, they are making more Autobot Primes/Matrix bearers from G1 (which is a great thing), but on the other hand, almost half of the list is nothing but Optimus figures. I would really hope they'll make a Fortress Maximus or the Star Saber (and hopefully, a Victory Leo) Masterpiece figure since they're two of the best Autobot leaders in G1.

Friggin' Primes...

I really hope MP-20 gets to be G1 Galvatron. They could do him in show colors first, then do MP-20M (or some other appropriate code) for the toy/Marvel-accurate Galvatron II. Maybe make him bluish-gray to reflect how he was rendered in the original comics.

Hell, the G1 figure is pretty close to MP scale to begin with. If I can take my beat-up old G1 Galvatron and figure out how it could be done all on my own, TakaraTomy's engineers really ought to be up to the task.

In short... MP-20 G1 Galvatron or GTFO, TakaraTomy!

I'd vote for Armada Optimus Prime and Galaxy Convoy. IMO, the former has a really nice design, and it'd be awesome to see high-end MP version of it. As for Galaxy Convoy, I missed out on the original, and a suped up MP version will be like a dream come true.

Too bad Vector Prime isn't on the list.
