    Takara's Beast Wars Masterpiece line has been speeding along so it's just about time for their ADD to kick in and deprive collectors of a complete set because reasons. So, who do you see being left out when they move on to Clownimus Prime, Cheetor 2.0, or, Heaven help us, Bumblebee 3.0?

    Probably not a news thread, here...

    Anyway, of the characters on your list, nobody. They're all getting done, so I voted "other," and you can realistically just fill in the blank with anybody there. Transmetal so-and-so, Fuzor whats-his-name...

    Tigatron, Airrazor and Scorponok are probably low on Takara's radar.

    But I really want to see an MP Airrazor. Hopefully before Bumblebee 3.0

    Inferno, apparently, according to the voting options.

    I hate to break it to you... but there already is a Bumblebee 2.0.

    As for the list? I got a bad feeling about Airazor, too.

    Contrary to what others might think of my pessimistic tendancies I actually think there's a good chance of them all getting done. However I think Scorponok and Airrazor are least likely.

    Btw you missed Inferno off your list.

    I think Terrorsaur and Scorponok are the most forgettable of those

    I'm more curious if they'll ever touch the season 2 and beyond ("Metals") stuff. Everyone needs a Silverbolt and a $700 Optimal Optimus, right? ;)

    As much as I want one I wouldn't be surprised if they never get to Airazor.

    I'm not expecting to ever see scorponok, but I don't think that's a huge loss. The bee drone is probably the most interesting part of that design. Will be genuinely upset if we miss out on Airazor, it's a nice design that would make a cool toy.

    Really hoping Takara will push out 2 (preferably 3) of these a year.

    Compared to G1, the Beast Wars cast is small enough that they could feasibly get to everyone eventually.
    Especially if the pace of releases stays steady
    Given they’ve branched out to Beast Wars II though, there’s more potential characters to choose from.

    out of all the season 1 cast I feel like everyone has a good shot.
    Tigatron and Airrazor feel the least likely though. Given Tigatron can’t just be a repaint of Cheetor. I don’t know how keen they’d be on working on a new mold that is basically a tweaked and upscaled version of what they’ve already made. Though I guess that could potentially be less effort than making an entirely new mold for a different character.
    Airrazor, the only real issue I see is, what would they decide to do with them. Would they stay faithful to the animation model, or try to play down the femininity of the design since Airrazor was male in Japan?

    But yeah? I think these a decent chance we’ll get to every season 1 character eventually
    And I don’t really see Beast Wars getting the version 2 treatment that G1 characters have been getting

    season 2 and beyond i feel is less likely
    Silverbolt has a chance
    But the transmetals fee less likely

    I wasn't aware the Masterpiece line was ending.


    Anything that doesn't have a known or working altmode. Transmutate, Tripredacus Council, the Vok, and probably Ravage. Everything else is on the table with Season 1 taking apparent priority. Silverbolt will happen sooner or later just to go with Blackarachnia.

    I really hope we see a Rhinox in the near future, I love his design.
    As for which I bet will be skipped... Tigerhawk. My overall favorite BW design by a stupidly huge margin, and one of my favorite toys growing up... But with the shortest, most forgettable bit of screentime before they kill them off.

    I hope the underrated Terrorsaur gets the Masterpiece treatment, and he could potentially get a repaint as Maximal Swoop! LOL

    I added Inferno so please update your votes if applicable. I didn't make this clear before but I was trying to list the normal BW show characters from before the gimmicks started.

    While the BW cast is small, keep this in mind. There were 11 deluxe cars in 1984 and another 7 in 1985. Neither of those are finished as of, what, 70+ releases post-MP10?

    If by some miracle we manage to get 70+ MP Beast Wars characters, some cast or group will almost certainly have been completed, by default. Counting up every character from the first series, BWII, BWNeo, and BWMetals, and counting the Transmetals as separate characters, I only get 87.

    Injector (aka Aquasting for anyone who was around back then) is the least likely though that would make for one weeeirrd MP figure.
