    Without the success of Beast Wars, we might not be talking about the Masterpiece figures on a site that has thousands of members. The Transformers line wasn't in the best of shape following the end of G1.

    Problem with G1 is that Takara/Hasbro has to work with manufactures on some iconic characters. If one refuses, said figure(s) using that company's vehicle model isn't happening. Alternator Bumblebee never happened because VW said no. If it wasn't for the Bay movies, they probably would of said no to Takara for the Masterpiece line too.

    Then there are fans of the series that collects the MP line. Some of have said once the first two seasons characters are MP, they are done with the line. So is there enough fans of the post 86 movie half to support the series only?

    I think there will be almost as many collecting post MP G1, as there are now. Of course, it's all dependent on the quality of the line and aesthetics of the pieces.

    Speaking for myself, I'd continue post G1. That being said, there are still ALOT of G1 characters for Takara to give the MP treatment to. That doesn't mean they shouldn't incorporate other Universe characters into the MP line. :D

    You know how many G1 characters there are out there and how long that would take to finish?

    I would like to see a MP Strika or a MP Tankor. I think they would make interesting pieces to the MP line. How many Starscreams, Optimus', Jazz, Sideswipes have we seen in the last 20 yrs? Something new needs to be injected into the line. What would be awesome would be individual Predacons that could actually merge into Predaking.

    Who says we can't? The first BW MP hasn't even been released yet! And the second is just a rumour.

    Too expensive for something not all that pleasing to my eye.

    I'm ok with some BW MPs in the mix.

    What I'm not ok with is that we still don't have G1 Megatron. It's like they're doing this on purpose, all this anger inducement :D 

    Give me Megatron, Takara! And I'll consider buying your beasts or whatever else; just give me MEGATROOOOOOOOON!!! :D  :D  :D

    I have to say I am really excited for this guy- a breath of fresh air in the MP line and just what it needs IMO

    It will be interesting to see if this comes true. He would certainly not be my choice for the second character to do. They seem to be afraid of evil leaders in every capacity. We have the following who have led the good side:

    Optimus Prime (MP-1, MP-4, MP-10 and several variants)
    Rodimus Prime (MP-9)
    Ultra Magnus (MP-22)
    Grimlock (MP-8)
    Star Saber (MP-24)
    Optimus Primal (MP-32)

    We have the following on the bad side:
    Megatron (MP-5)
    Leader Starscream (MP-11)
    Shockwave (MP-29)

    So not at all even. Starscream still leads the current scale. He must be pretty happy to rule for so long for once.

    Interesting also that this was rumored. Beast Megatron and Dinobot were also in that rumor, I believe. If they all come true I have some crow to eat.

    The moral of the story is to stay positive. 24 hours ago, it was all doom and gloom. But now, we're re-energised with optimism.

    There's plenty of other characters I would want before any of the Beast War characters. That said I don't mind if they do start mixing them into the lineup. I'm just happy that the line is doing so well and we are getting so many. I say bring them on.

    You can buy a 3rd party version right now for what a official one would most likely cost. Assuming if they ever do one. I can't buy a official MP BW Megatron or a 3rd party version.
