You think they'll ever come around to MP'ing everything?

    We all know and look forward to the new additions to the MP line.
    You think they'll continue the MP line all the way through to lines like Galaxy force or just stop after they've done all they want from G1?

    If they do a MP sideswipe that would make me soooo happy
    but i don't think he is that much of an immportant character.

    I think the Beast Wars and up figures are already good as they are. Why MP them? only the major players in G1 should be MPed. But I hope they spend some time off from TF MPs and do more Brave MPs :) .

    I see the Masterpiece line as a strictly G1 line. And even then, there are only a few characters worthy of the MP treatment.

    Still, some Beast Wars Masterpiece figures with real hair/fur might be very interesting.

    The supply will continue as long as the demand exists.

    If the fanbase is willing to purchase fifty one-hundred dollar figures, then Takara Tomy will produce fifty one-hundred dollar figures.

    I'm hoping that we get to see a few BW characters get the MP treatment.

    MP Primal would rock. I'd love it if they gave him some sort of fur... though I imagine that'd be goofy. MP Dragon Megatron is my real wish, though.:)

    Considering they're already pretty articulated and all what else could they do to them (Yes , I think Primal with real fur would look extremely wierd)?

    you mean the R.I.D one?

    R.I.D prime would be good though, the train combiners too.

    I doubt the MP line will go a long time mainly because, in Japan or abroad, people won't just buy a big, complex, and expensive figure of just ANY character, at least not in sufficient numbers to be profitable. All the MP toys so far have been the heaviest of heavy hitters (Convoy, Starscream, Megatron), along with repaints and variants which don't need any extra engineering budget. There are still some 'heavy hitter' characters left in the TF universe which could sell a MP-grade figure, but there's no way I'd expect a full lineup of Autobots and Decepticons as MPs. Some leader characters from the more popular series seem more likely.

    Eh, I'd be just as happy if they never made another MP figure again.

    I would think we'll at least see a Soundwave MP, at least I hope. I'd buy that in a heartbeat, plus he seems like the most popular "side" character outside of Starscream. Maybe a Hot Rod or Rodimus for an Autobot one.

    While BW (or RiD) Masterpiece would be nice, I guess they'd stick with G1 characters (even though it's name only...like Starscream :p )

    Soundwave would be nice, but he is getting reissued and reused as a MP-3 player, so I doubt it. Plus he can't be more complicated transform-wise, can he? Added articulation would be nice, though, I don't think it's enough for a MP treatment.
    TakTom should reissue casetterons/casettebots to go with Soundwave/Broadcast reissues :) 

    I want to see some combiners. Any one will do, because I probably won't be able to afford one :(

    The only MP they ever got right was Prime (and Magnus), Starscream I really wish I had never bought and Megatron was a titanic disappointment though its just good enough not to sell off as it still worth keeping on for display.

    Honestly if they do anymore MP toys I'm not buying them unless I know as fact its worth it. It's to bad because Prime/Megnus were so awesome but they dropped the ball so hard on Megs and Starscream.
