    So, I'm hoping that after Takara has tackled the larger figures Rodimus Prime (or Hot Rod) and hopefully Galvatron that they'll continue the Masterpiece line addressing some of the smaller figures (at hopefully a fittingly smaller price), such as the rest of the Dinobots and some other vehicles that weren't addressed in Alternators/Binaltech (some of which could use a redo in my opinion).

    What would everyone like to see at a $40-$70 price point, from Takara mind you, not Hasbro. Perhaps the Hasbro versions (probably Walmart exclusives) would be a $25-$45 range depending on the figure.

    I'd like to see those as a Masterpiece "set" of some sort. I'd like to add:

    Ironhide
    Ratchet
    Hoist
    Trailbreaker

    I cannot believe we have not seen a MP/Alternators version of Ironhide and Ratchet. They seem to be very popular with fans and were both featured in the Movie. Seems like it the two would sell well. Maybe they are not as popular as I think.

    for repaintablity, prowl (bluestreak, red alert) and sideswipe (sunstreaker).

    I really want to see masterpieces of all of the cars. I know that many have been done in binaltech/alternators but

    1. These are not the 80's models from the show and

    2. I dont like the fact that almost all of the alts/bts dont have real feet. They just seem to have like the back half of the car folded up into a big box attached to their leg. Masterpieces all have actual feet (megs, op, screamer, grim)

    Yeah, I bet this is the first time a re-thread has happened. Thanks for the contribution. Anyway, good ideas deserve an occasional reboot. I like the idea of Masterpiece sets of smaller figures (like BB, Brawn, Beachcomber) or verses sets (a set of 1 Autobot against his Decepticon rival). That would be a good way to sale multiple smaller figures in one set. Might help balance sales for a less popular figure to be paired against/with a popular one.

    G1 isn't the only series where we could take a character and make a pristine heritage figure. Laser Prime? Beast Wars? I would kill for an even better mold of any Primal/Rattrap/Cheetor/Rinox/Megatron body. Heck I would love to see more show accurate Beast Machines stuff, but that's quite a stretch.

    Even more recent offerings would be fantastic. Masterpiece Animated stuff, maybe Omega Supreme could fit the bill? (Lugnut plz?)

    G1 maybe the series that used to be in dire need of some remakes with the tech we have in toys today, but it certainly isn't the only place to pull from.
