By “nailed” I mean since a particular mold has been released, no other company has even teased their version of that character. They may not be definitive, but they’re pretty close and for most of us, to trade up, something almost unimaginably good would have to come along to outshine the current offering. I reckon the following are “it” as far as MP interpretations go: HasTak – Bumblebee, Prowl, Bluestreak, Wheeljack, Sideswipe, Smokescreen, Red Alert, Tracks, Soundwave Fanstoys – Jetfire, Perceptor, Galvatron Badcube – Brawn, Gears, Warpath Mech Ideas – Topspin, Twin Twist, Ironfist MMC – Mirage, Impactor XTB – Windcharger, Beachcomber KFC – Blaster Can you think of any other? In your opinion, of course. ***** I guess I should have clarified my question better (and not added “in your opinion”), as I wanted this to be fairly objective. I know that there’s probably never going to be a figure that ticks 100% of the boxes for 100% of the collectors, but there have been some figures so good that since they were released, no other company seems to have deemed the character worth tackling. Regardless of whether they can produce something even better, from a purely financial perspective will they generate enough sales to warrant the investment, when so many people in their target audience are already satisfied with the current offering and not likely to upgrade. Figures that come to mind in particular when I made my original list, and I’m aware that not everyone may personally like these, are the TT Datsun brothers, TT Wheeljack, Fantoys Sovereign, Fanstoys Tesla, Badcube Wardog. Since these figures have been released, there’s not been even a hint of further competition. Where there are multiple good (but not perfect) offerings of the same character, there will always be two camps depending on which version tickled an individual’s sensibilities, so clearly the character hasn’t got an overall winning figure. With Hound, for example, some people have stated their preference for either Fanstoys Willis or Maketoys Gundog. Nothing has been released since these came out, but as they’ve gone for different styles, there’s not one you can say has triumphed. TT grapple and Inferno seem to very popular, but Maketoys and MMC’s offerings were also very good and have a good fan base, and XTB still has theirs to come with enough people looking forward to them, so there’s no winner here either. Even where there were characters which had offerings where one or more was clearly sub-par (such as Sunstreaker or Jazz); because those underdog figures have a strong enough fan base, then you can’t say that the “better” figure got it completely right. I just thought it would be nice to compile a list of figures where, it seems, the fight is over. A certain figure was released, and (even though it might not be perfect or what certain individuals may want to see from that character) realistically we don’t expect to see anyone else throw their hat in the ring for a while. For now, if you want a Galvatron for example, you have to get Fanstoys Sovereign. If you want a Warpath, you have to get Badcube’s Wardog. For these characters, these figures are “it”. Nothing else comes close and we don’t expect to see anything else for a while. Do we really expect to see anyone else take a shot at Jetfire, Blaster or Beachcomber anytime soon? I could only list the figures in my collection I believe hit those marks, so was hoping others could fill in the blanks like the later Japanese stuff, Headmasters/Targetmaster, etc, and Beast Wars.
