    No, no, no, a thousand times no.

    Nothing in particular against BW, and I'd be totally up for two or three BW MP's someday. But before Movie? No.

    It doesn't really matters... it depends of which figure is the MP xD as I love both BW and Movieverse =P

    So does that mean the mp line is officialy dead because movie starscream is not G1??

    I think your right it needs to be original to g1 style, but I would love a BW with a lot of detail and paints apps in masterpiece size

    Sorry, I was being sarcastic in relation to all of the rage going on in the MP Movie Starscream thread in the news forum.

    To me, "Masterpiece" is symbolic of the amount of detail involved with a particular figure, not necessarily a representation of a particular rendition of the Transformers lore. If somebody makes a BW Dinobot, RID Scourge, etc that is of the same high quality as MP 01-08, and slap it in a Masterpiece box, I'm all for it.

    I don't think it necessarily has to be g1 but I do think it needs to be other characters from older tf lines.....but I think there are much more deserving characters than movie starscream, even mores than hot rod. Ie ratchet and ironhide... I mean for gods sake they didn't even got the common courtesy of a head!

    Most of the BW figures are already quite good and detailed, though if we were to get MP versions..

    (Looking at the top three contenders for "MP BW")

    MP BW-01 Optimus Primal
    • Color scheme/head design of the 10th Anniversary two-pack Primal
    • Wrist panels extend outward and have gun barrels extend (a la "Primus forearms")
    • Better lower back design so the robot mode doesn't have the overhang

    MP BW-02 Megatron
    • Show-accurate color scheme that just about every incarnation has kinda-sorta-almost-not-really touched on.
    • Removable tail-claw weapon (left arm would be a basic robot type with actual fingers).
    • Better foldaway for the back panels. They were in the show and the first BW Megs got that feature right, but they were still too big.
    • LED inside the t-rex mouth for the "laser cannon"

    MP BW-03 Dinobot
    Okay, because most Dinobots previously have come close to show accuracy, but never really reached it, it's hard to list individual items here. I realize we may not be able to get a perfectly streamlined humanoid robot mode AND somehow keep a slimmer velociraptor body, but after seeing Henkei Dinobot; I know it's possible to come close.

    Actually, Henkei nearly nailed it; it's just that the underbelly and legs had a bit too much robot mode showing and the legs themselves ended up being a bit thin at the top for the barrel-chested robot mode.

    Of course the real gimmick is: Stiff tail but accurate spinner weapon, or flexible tail and potential lack of spinner weapon? Or do they go with a flexible tail that works into the transformation and in beast mode; the spinner is used as part of something else?


    Obviously I'd love a BW MP line, but the problem I see with it is that Beast Wars had such a concise and well-formed cast that a figure line from it almost demands completion. I'll even admit that having only Dinobot and Cheetor in the Universe line felt a bit strange. Doing BW Masterpiece figures would feel odd if we only got a few of them (I mean, can anyone really justify "MP Rattrap")?
