    I don't personally own any MP figures (though I plan on getting Prime, Megs, and the G1 SS figures whenever I have the money for them), but I have to say they are some of the most impressive transformers out there.

    So, I was just trying to think of what would be some characters that either need to be made into Masterpieces or would just be cool as Masterpieces.

    Personally I'd like to see:
    Soundwave
    Shockwave
    Grimlock
    Unicron (would be cool, admit it)
    A gestalt (probably Devastator)

    There's plenty of characters that deserve the treatment, but those are just the first few that come to mind. Trying to avoid repaints and such, as I prefer new molds personally.

    I'd like to see a MP Prowl. I'd buy it.

    And why Prowl didn't come to mind when I posted this is beyond me, he would be awesome as a Masterpiece and is one of my favorite characters...

    Well, I think for most of the Autobot cars it's not too likely, as we already have awsome Alternators and BTs for those characters.

    I have trouble imagining an MP Soundwave because... well... the G1 toy alone is awsome enough. Aside from articulated fingers and knees that bend the right way there's not much else you can do to improve that toy.

    As for Unicron... the Armada toy is pretty damn good as it is. Aside from the paint scheme and the planet mode "mouth" I can't see doing much to him either.

    In my opinion, the MP line doesn't look all that bright. I'd only want more MP figures if they really were "masterpieces" like Prime. Screamer and Megs, imo, were one disaster after another. But I know that will be a point of contention around here.

    Anyway, that's my two cents.

    i think shock or soundwave would fit the MP line the most but they wouldnt be the best still, too much going on w/ Alts and movie toys

    I'm well aware. I'm also well aware that it looks like a piece of crap.

    I hate Ultimate BB.

    Too expensive, unnecessary amount of electronics, crappy transformation.

    Just, waste of plastic.

    It's fine for collectors and completists I suppose, but it just aint worth it to me.

    Of course! God forbid they ever use any of the other combiners. It ALWAYS has to be Devastator!!!

    For new mould...Rodimus Prime or Galvatron would rock! As for repaints...I want to see a Thundercracker so we can get all 3 original seekers in a "main line" since G1 and "robot masters"! XD

    Well to each their own I guess. I'd rather they leave out all those electronics and focus on the transformation and detail. Perhaps try to find a way to keep an interior as well. Hell, MP versions of any of the movie characters would be wicked.

    Not saying I'd prefer Devastator over any of the other combiners (quite the contrary actually, I'd much rather have say...the stunticons or combaticons, and as for autobot gestalts I'd say the aerialbots or technobots), but fact is he's the more..known/popular gestalt and the most likely to get made into a MP figure.
