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.

: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.

Wait so is that is for new MP's until next years Tokyo Toy Show?

Is there any other events where they announce MP's or do you think there will be random announcements in the future sort of like MP Prowl and his repaints?

I'm certain there will be more MPs next year. I think this is just a tease/taste of things to come. It's possible that they plan on doing all of the MPs/lines listed, but are only choosing one which will be first in line for the 30th anniversary release.

I would love an MP armada prime. The design was awesome but the combined super mode was a brick. Just imagine if it had a trailer that could become articulated legs =P~ . I would get it for sure.

I'm just going to assume the lack of Ultra Magnus on that list means he's already planned.

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

Although a Victory Saber would be cool, I'd vote Primal. Hopefully it would be a foot in the door towards more BW Masterpieces. Despite how great toyline was let's face it, the show characters from the first season got screwed over. Hardly any of them were in scale, they had incorrect colors, and their designs were often inaccurate. I also hope Takara would do BW masterpieces on a smaller scale, they really don't have to be very large. Also, just a random idea. But Beast Wars is actually a great candidate for a masterpiece line. Considering how few characters were actually in the show, that could mean a complete Beast Wars masterpiece lineup

As far as I'm concerned, Beast Wars Telemocha Series TM-01 Convoy is already "Masterpiece Optimus Primal" enough, being show-accurate enough in size, color, and mold. 8)

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.

Posted by TimothyR on June 15th, 2013 @ 2:50am CDT
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.)

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 :-?

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:

Masterpiece: Star Saber please :D

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 ;)

This is specifically for a 30th aniversary special MP release right? So I'm guessing that's why it's between all the famous Autobot commanders. Won't be tied to or restrictive of the general MP line I'm guessing.
V2 Megs is too long coming, I agree.

There is a card next to Springer saying something about 'sample' so I'm guessing as someone else said this is just the hasbro one for show purposes. Peeps hoping for shiny and different deco could still be pleased it seems :D

Plus! Tigertrack also has Red Alert's chest instead of Swipe's! It has those round doo-hickey thingies on it. This excites me more than it should but who cares :DANCE:

A poll on one of the next MP figures?

There's only three from this list I'd be willing to see: Generation One Fortress Maximus, Victory Star Saber, and Armada Optimus Prime. Fortress Maximus because I'm curious to see how he would be done (plot twist: he's based on his regular Transformer-sized IDW design! :lol: ), Star Saber because Victory is my favorite of the Japanese Generation One continuity, and Armada Optimus because he was from the series that first got me into Transformers. :x

I would get me a MP Fort Max in a heartbeat. Whatever size it ends up being would scale with my Classics. Of course, if it were diecast, I'd have to get heavy duty shelving.

Scamper comes with both Hasbro and TakaraTomy, it's the second gun that seals the deal for most.
