    Ok, to be honest with you guys, I have to admit Rodimus Prime is, character-wise, one of my least favorite Autobots. Add to the fact that Optimus is my favorite Transformer of all time, and, well you can see where I'm could go with this, but I digress.

    However, design-wise, Rodimus is a cool looking bot. And I do like the visual contrast between him and Optimus, modern vs futuristic. I don't think it'd be too hard for HasTakTomy to make an MP Rodimus and keep him faithful to the cartoon design.

    And besides, we need some more Autobot MPs. So far, all we have are Optimus and Ultra Magnus.

    Anyone else want Rodimus for the next MP?

    Not sure I'd be interested in a MP Rodimus Prime. It all would depend on how he looked and whether or not he was released here in the states. The next two we know of are Thundercracker and Grimlock. Personally I'm really looking forward to Grimlock. Beyond that we have no idea what to expect. A MP Soundwave or Shockwave would be nice.

    I would rather a number of other Autobots first (Jazz, Prowl, Wheeljack, Bumblebee, Grimlock, Hound, etc.). But after all the pre-movie 'bots get the MP treatment, then sure, why not? :)

    G1-accurate MP Blitzwing could be really awesome, though I would prefer MP Soundwave first.

    The only MP I'm really interested now that they've done OP, Megs and the Seekers is Shockwave. I'm fine with my alts Autobots, so I don't consider them a necessity to do in the MP line. Unless they complete the Autobot cast with missing character like Ironhide and Bumblebee, I vote for Shockwave next :p

    If Grimlock is going to be made that'd be awesome. I've always wanted a new version of Soundwave (the Animated version just doesn't do it for me)..but I'm not too sure about an oversized walkman as a Masterpiece. Although the Walther P-38 is awesome.

    On another note....I love the way my Alternators display with Masterpiece Prime and Screamer ( I still need Megs and the other two seekers), but a true line of Masterpiece Autobots and Decepticons would be a dream just doesn't feel like an immediate for me at the moment (Hell I still have to pick up some of those, plus the Universe Autobots are turning out awesome).

    Rodimus Prime would be an awesome start. I'm a bit elated with my classics Hot Rod. He looks cool but he's a bit back heavy and boring to transform. A Mp Rodimus could be very intricate. Maybe Blitzwing and some other triple changing Decepticons.

    so its pretty much confirmed that the next MP is grimlock, right..im not much of a dinobot fan, so im not interested in this..however, for the one after grimlock, there are quite a few autobots i'd like to see apart from rodimus..though i agree with u, he'd make a great figure..
    but i like buying MP figures not only for their quality as a figure but as a character in the cartoon/movie..so like i said, there are others i'd like to see before this guy
