If it's anything other than G1, it's a definite pass for me. Not that I'm anti anything but G1, but my Masterpiece collection is focused on recreating the G1 cast in as close to perfection as possible. Anything else (movie masterpieces, AEC, etc) just do not fit in.

This, I don't buy MPs, but I'd definitely get an mp armada Optimus.

And if his "power pants" moved

Is the Star Saber pic dropping a hint?

Hoping for either Armada or Cybertron Optimus. I don't know really anything about Star Saber and don't have much of a connection to him. Plus, those two look waaaaay more badass IMO
KPhilipsen
I'm in for Star Saber! Bring it on.
BWfan86
My guess is that it won't matter who wins. They've developed protos for multiple variants and may probably release them all at some point.

I am of the same mind. And even though I knew nothing of the Japan-exclusive characters until roughly six years ago, I am now super about Star Saber. But I'm still pulling for Ginrai, I loved my PM Prime back in the day. I know folks here are sick of all the Primes, I understand the sentiment, but my selfish side wants too see how awesome Ginrai would look as an MP. But if someone non-G1 wins, my wallet will be happy, or happier in the face of all the other MPs I'm going to beat it with.

I knew Primal would never win, but alas for a moment I dreamed. Cybertron Optimus in Masterpiece form. My brain literally cannot imagine what that would look like....

Star Saber wishes to share the results with us early:

ShockWave77
star saber for the win!!!!

Sorry but i can t follow if someone really wants MP Star Saber. (Only if its a japanese fan maybe...)
I would definitely prefer Powermaster, Fortress, Primal, Armada...
But really not Star Saber. Or one US or EU guy tell me a good reason why he should win besides the reason that the G1 original is expensive/ hard to get on eBay...
divinecomedy
None of them are actually that exciting to me, but if I have to choose, I'll go with Fortress Maximus or Star Saber. None of the animal molds, that's for sure.
Niv3k
I just have no connection with Star Saber. And YES I did watch TF: Victory.
sideways2
I fear that Star Saber is going to win (was already build) anyway and the whole choose your next MP was just a campaign to justify the not making a new Megatron or Galvatron MP.

Because we like him. What does the rarity or price of a G1 toy have to do with anything? Has that had any bearing whatsover on any previous Masterpiece toy? G1 Prime is a dime a dozen and he's already gotten two MP toys.

Also this is a Japanese poll that Japanese fans (primarily) voted on for a Japanese release. Star Saber is incredibly popular in Japan and always has been.

WOW! Ok no sarcasm, explain that one to me..... I mean, AMAZING finale' but.... The rest of the series... I was bouncing off the walls excited when the first episode aired, then turned it off out of boredom 1/2 way through.... (Unless you mean the comic.... cause the comic was awesome)

This. If I had to guess, I'd wager these were ALL ideas of things that they want to do, and this "winner" was just a way to pick who goes first.

Well it's my favorite series too, so...

Thats cool. But I've never met someone who said Armada was their favorite, so I'm legitimately curious what criteria earns it that moniker.

I think it has something to do with the fact that this was the first Transformers cartoon that I watched and what brought me to this brand.
Axalon586
With Ultra Magnus already in the works i'd say a Powermaster Prime/God Ginrai is gonna happen someday. Takara can't stay away from the repaints. I'll take one for sure, but Victory Saber does sound good as well.

They might have been kids when it was airing and have a nostalgia for it that us older folks wouldn't be in tune with. I thought it was terrible but I liked the toys. I can say the same for G1 even though I grew up with it. I still watch G1 and I'll always have a soft spot for it but I would never argue that G1 is a good show.

And there you go. By the way Niv3k, while I may not have liked Armada I respect your opinion. Shows we watched as kids can have a powerful connection with us.

If anybody else wins besides Fort Max it will be a waste of plastic...I mostly just want to see how they pull that off.


Ok, I want to buy it too.
Technostorm98
Armada OP was definitely the best OP from the Unicron Trilogy, and all the G1 guys other than Fort Max aren't that great. But I have a feeling that Star Saber is going to win, even though I feel HasTak is going to make a Generations toy of him sooner or later. If Armada OP wins that would be amazing imo.
mizuki088
Seriously, I do want someone else more than Optimus, Megatron, Star scream(or seeker remote). Rodimius is bad.
Grimlock and Soundwave is good.


Remember:
Star Saber+ Victory Leo (2 mp)
Fortress Max/grand Max/Car robot Fortress Max.
Blaster...(We already have one tape players..why not another one.)

HA! ok THAT I will disagree with! Cybertron Prime is still Definitive Prime in my mind all these years later! (With a touch of paint)

People clearly did not think this through. Should've been Dia Atlas, then they'd almost have no choice but to back-fill the rest of the leaders.

Well its your opinion, but we can agree that Energon OP sucked.

Indeed it is merely my opinion and INDEED we can all agree on that!

Thanks for respecting my opinion I really like G1 even though I did not grew up with it, but I would not buy all the Masterpiece figures just because I have no "soft spot" for it. But I have to agree that I do respect and enjoy the series that started it all a lot.

Man.. I think that was the worst Optimus of the Unicron Triology.

Armad OP can fly w/ Jetfire, those giant underarm cannons make his toy semi-unbalanced, and savage claw mode was... pretty cool
Predaking
I'd buy it for sure if it's Star Saber. Takara would be smart to go with SS since they can release a MP Victory Leo that can combine with Star Saber and rake in even more money.

In the series, the toy version of the savage claw mode was... meh.
