I'd like FM to have a small voyager sized Cerebos
He'd probably be able to live in it.
seriously, star saber deserves a masterpiece more than any of the other choices. he is the second most popular cybertron commander and takaratomy has been wanting to make a new one for a long time
IT NEEDS TO HAPPEN
i would have to vote for Star Saber.
Star saber!! Where do I vote? WHEN do I vote?!
In my detached garage!
An they cld ship it in a crate fill with hay.
What? No elita-1?
Masterpiece Powermaster Optimus Prime?
*dies of fangasm*
My response to this news is gwahalosbdnskaindbdnjd ahhhhh omg ashdbjfdnndk wooooooo yeeeeeaahhahhhh gaaaaaaayauayayayayaya
Star saber! Star saber! Star saber! Star saber! Star saber! Star saber! Star saber!
PLEASE! FREAK YEAH! That's a masterpiece id buy from Takara, no matter how much its costs!
Fort Max would be the size of a warehouse.
The way they sell it is to sell admission tickets for you to visit!
all the talk about "meh its not season 1 or 2 g1 its lame" needs to frickin stop. here is our chance to get some character that DESERVE a masterpiece like star saber, beast convoy, or dai atlas and you are clamoring for stuff takaratomy ALREADY SAID they were wanting to do.
seriously, this fandom irritates the hell out of me these days
There's a man who knows what he's talking about!
Of course, there's the hindrance though of being a Japanese exclusive - Takara can't really market him off to Western audiences through Hasbro - unless of course that's the reason he's starting to pop up in the comics all of a sudden - in his glorious G1 incarnation and not that crappy sword from the Unicron Trilogy and Prime (although given Hasbro decided on making Acid Storm - an unnamed background character who was only named in recent years - into an MP, I guess anything's possible).
How about a Masterpiece Megatron that isn't a thin, floppy mess? What about a Masterpiece Shockwave? Masterpiece Bumblebee? Masterpiece Jazz? Masterpiece Wheeljack? Masterpiece Devastator?
You know, Masterpiece figures we'd actually buy, that might have a fighting chance on store shelves in the US.
Wait, we can't pick Transformers: Prime Optimus Prime? What a ripoff!
Imagine the price tag... no thanks!
Voting for Primal might bring us other BW characters in the future.
After a little more thought, I think I'd vote for Dai Atlas since:
- Again, no idea if Fort Max is a serious possibility, let alone what scale it could be released at
- I've just assumed that a Ginrai/PM Optimus is something that will happen eventually (I'm sure Hasbro wouldn't mind that selection); plus it will need Godbomber
- Similar to Ginrai, Star Saber will need Victory Leo released eventually to pair with him
That leaves Dai Atlas. I know Sonic Bomber and Roadfire "combine" with him in alt mode, but I could really care less (I'm sure it's nifty, but any combination outside of 'bot mode or to create a larger 'bot are things I don't prioritize) so Dai Atlas works as a stand alone release that doesn't "need" another robot released around the same time to complete it. Plus, I do really like his 'bot mode, so that works out well for me. Though again, I'd be happy with Ginrai/Star Saber too.
Those guys probably aren't on the poll list because Takara doesn't need a poll telling them to get made - they're probably on the list of MPs already.
Agreed, Fort Max really seems like he was just thrown in there for the sake of it.
I would think given Takara's fondness for the G1 line/molds, there's a larger possibility for Ginrai/Star Saber and Dai Atlas.
Ginrai would make the most sense financially because they could instantly pass him off to Hasbro to make Powermaster Prime, and could repaint him into a number of already done figures - Nucleon Quest Super Convoy and Fire Guts.
Star Saber and Dai Atlas while popular - don't have as many repaint/retool options - though Takara would probably re-issue them in Black given their love of that recolor.
Star Sabre could work, Fort Max would mean Titan Class Fort Max( please Hasbro) Armada Prime would be nice (give old Brick Boy decent articulation)
It's been a good year so far for the MP line, so I'm not too bothered by this news. My wallet could use the break anyway.
