Do you think the movie will inspire new Masterpieces?

    Do you think Tarkara-Tomy will do Masterpieces based on the movie?

    So far, Masterpieces (and I love 'em) have been based off the 1984 G1 representation of the cartoon characters:

    01 - Prime
    02 - Magnus (repaint of Prime)
    03 - Starscream
    04 - Prime w. Trailer
    05 - Megatron
    06 - Skywarp (repaint of Starscream slated for September)

    But due to the size and look of some of the movie characters, don't you think some Masterpieces are warranted:

    Blackout
    Brawl
    Bonecrusher
    Ratchet
    Ironhide

    Obviously the leaders would also be justified, but I'd just prefer more variety.

    I'd love to see some of the Movie cast given Masterpiece treatment (especially BRAWL and STARSCREAM) but can't really see it happening.

    With the MP range being so high-end and 'deluxe', they're geared toward collectors. I think the majority of those collectors, rightly or wrongly, will always tend to favour G1. While there's a market for that, we'll be stuck with G1 Masterpieces and HasTak won't risk a departure from them.

    Maybe if Ultimate BUMBLEBEE is a big hit....?

    I doubt it. At least not right away. Takara Tomy will more likely focus on the G1 characters that it knows Japanese fans will buy. I wouldn't be surprised if we see signs of Soundwave, Rodimus, or one of the Japanese leaders like Star Saber or Ginrai before the year is out.

    Why? You wouldn't have to buy them.
    Would you deny a line to someone who'd really enjoy it just because it was something you personally didn't want?

    I disliked the Classics, but don't begrude them to those who liked the series.

    I'd like it too, I'm really bored of G1 styled figures. I guess after Alts, Classics, numerous homages in the mainlines, and the MP's so far, I'm all G1ed out.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if Takara was sketching out ideas as we speak.

    A masterpiece Movie Prime that did the CGI justice would rule.

    I think it's a non-event, it's unlikely TFTM will even be a big hit in Japan.

    I'd be cool if they made Masterpieces of MP-01 through MP-07 in Movie Form.
