    w/ Megatron?? No, I'm not drunk (yet anyway) but hear me out. The Masterpiece line has focused on iconic characters and who are more iconic than Optimus Prime, Megatron and Starscream? Sure there are plenty of bots that I would love to see updated in some form (Shockwave, Liokaiser, Sixshot), but are they really deserving of being a Masterpiece? Would any random person who hasn't seen transformers since they were younger instantly recognize it?

    Well, rant over so let my stoning begin!:throw

    No. Who cares about random person, he is not going to spend that much money on a toy of a character he only slightly remembers :D 

    Plus Japanese fans need some more TFs they can look forward to.

    Absolutely not! If you don't want 'em, don't buy 'em. Simple as that.

    I want more Masterpiece figures. Just not repaints, that's all.

    Not end...maybe constructed a little better...

    I only have the Prime...so I can't comment on the others...maybe they have been produced differently but the prime feels cheap...don't get me wrong he looks really good but every time I pick him up for a re-posing I'm afriad he's going to break...

    I'm not saying that they should end the line because I don't want or like the toys. I only have 20th Ann. Prime so far but I do enjoy the photos of Ultra Magnus and Starscream and I plan on purchasing Megatron as well. Hell I remember when they were voting on the boards for who we would like to see be the 20th Anniversary figure of I wished for Shockwave the most.

    I am saying that the Masterpiece Line has so far had major characters from G1. Aside from Soundwave, what transformer could be next besides the plethora of repaints available from Starscream? Rodimus/ Hot Rod or Galvatron? Maybe one of the Japanese exclusive leaders like Victory Saber? What I'm trying to say is these are second tier characters and the demand for these bots is very minimal compared to the demand that was there for the Masterpieces we've had so far.

    No way. They better at least give me a MP Hot Rod first. :D  But there's plenty of other major icons they could do still.

    I see your point, Slugslinger2004, and it is a valid one. What I'd like to know is which characters are considered first tier in Japan; Would they consider something like Starsaber? After all, Takara did do the Masterpiece Brave figures...

    Keep 'em coming. No sense in ending a good thing because some collector's don't like it.

    Shockwave? Yes.
    Liokaiser? No.
    Sixshot? No.

    They still need to do iconic characters like Shockwave, Soundwave, Grimlock, Rodimus Prime and Galvatron.

    I'd be happy with a reissue Liokaiser. I NEED one, but I'm not paying $400+ for one, or anything over $150 for that matter.

    I too would prefer reissues for figures like Liokaiser, Overlord, etc. They don't really deserve the MP treatment.
