    Would anyone like to see some masterpiece figures that arnt G1? After all some of the most succesful characters were introduced in series like beast wars (just look at the wall of fame :)  ).
    So does anybody else want a Masterpiece Optimus Primal or a Masterpiece Animated Megatron? :)

    Yes.
    Yes, I would.
    Ain't gonna happen, though.
    Hasbro and Takara aren't interested in organics, no matter how many 'mals and Preds you/I/we vote into the Hall of Fame.
    And, up until yesterday, even the garage-kit companies and "Third Party" companies hadn't announced, sculpted, or made one single character.

    If it takes priority away from G1 MPs, then no, no I would not want non G1 MPs.
    but if it existed independently on its own, I wouldn't mind.

    With the complete understanding that non G1 MPs are supremely unlikely to happen, I would buy the shit out of Overlord and Ginrai.

    Doubt you see Beast wars since alt modes seem to aim at being real world accurate.

    As far as the rest, from what can tell, G1 and Movie seems to be the consistent sellers and most known properties among people who can afford the figures (I'm sure beast wars would be aside from the little glitch mentioned above). RID, Unicron trilogy and animated don't sem to have that general public seepage that G1, and more so, the movies do. Anyway, just my opinion.

    Well, consider who's available outside of G1:

    R.I.D.? No.
    Beast Wars? Optimus Primal, Dinobot, Megatron, or Waspinator, maybe.
    Beast Machines? No.
    Unicron Trilogy? No.
    Movies? Already done with Bumblebee and Starscream.
    Animated? No.
    Prime? Highly doubtful.

    I wonder why Takara never packaged a redeco of the RotF Leader Optimus as a Movie Masterpiece. I guess Buster Prime is Masterpiece enough? Wish I'd gone in for one.

    Ohhhhhh! For whatever reason, I thought they were given the actual masterpiece treatment with the fingers and crazy articulation, etc. etc.

    Nope, just a bitchin' paintjob. Which is sad too, considering those molds (SS and Prime) are some minor modifications away from being true masterpieces.

    As for why Buster prime wasn't sold that way, they just probably got the movie MP idea after he was released. Even the Hasbro version is still a masterpiece... in my heart though.

    My thoughts exactly. This idea probably won't happen though.

    I'd go like hell for a Masterpiece Vector Prime in his Original 13 design. For that matter I'd go for any of the 13!

    I'd actually love to see a Beast Wars TM Megatron made.

    If they would do MP figures of some BW characters, the BM Vehicon generals, and some Animated figures, I would buy any figure made at that point.

    Until then the $30 Skywarp and the full price Grimlock will be all the MP's I'll get.

    I've always wanted Armada Starscream and Megatron to receive the Masterpiece treatment.
