    Soundwave and his cassettes look awesome so they should do Blaster next. Make him about the same size as Soundwave in robot mode though. He would also be able to have cartoon head design and comic head design.

    Blaster would come with Steeljaw and the two packs would be Eject & Ramhorn, Rewind & Stripes (repaint of Ravage, since MP Soundwave only has three cassette molds).

    As much as I want a MP Blaster, I don't think he should be next. I'm kinda gettin my hopes up for some more cars....ya know, so when MP-Magnus rolls around, he'll be able to bring his troops into battle with him.

    I wonder if they could get Blaster just by extensively remolding Soundwave. I don't think it's that farfetched.

    I would say it is. Masterpiece is about accuracy to the original toy. Remolding FoC Soundwave into Blaster is okay, but not for Masterpiece.

    The only thing they have in common is the most basic part of their transformation scheme, and the fact their chests open. The alt-mode shapes are actually completely different. It would be just as bad as Sunstreaker being a remold of Sideswipe.

    Anyway... no, he shouldn't. TT hasn't given any thought to matching MP releases so far (what with releasing Prime and Megs four apart)... why would they begin now?

    Well if you havent noticed they jst use molds they can retool into other characters, which is probably the main reason they havent done a figure like shockwave because they have nothing to redeco him to

    No way. He's not even in the top 5 of characters that should be next in line to get the MP treatment.

    I think he should get an MP release at some point. Maybe not right away, but some time in the future (along with his own minions).

    Soundwave and Blaster can easily be redeco'd into Soundblaster and Twincast. Plus, there's definitely some remold/redeco potential with the cassettes, especially if we factor in E-Hobby, Kiss Players, Reissues and other releases that used the G1 mold designs.

    No, leave Blaster be until more key character Autobot cars and main Decepticons are hammered out first.

    Would be cool; I could then relegate Device Label Broadblast/Blaster (and his G1 cassette minions) to my Classics Wreckers display. But I wouldn't hold out hope for an official MP version being released anytime soon. If anything, third party FansToys will release their version within the year (they already have a prototype made and shown).

    My wish list for the next MP is very short: Galvatron.

    (Although a 'proper' Ultra Magnus or v2 Megs would also work for me)

    My short list for what I want next:

    Prowl/other Datsuns
    Cyclonus
    Kup

    I would say Galvatron, but honestly his alt mode sucks so badly that it would be a waste. Cyclonus up there is his placeholder. :)
