    It's gonna be a hard sell.
    Barricade is a popular character, but is that enough to sell units of a really different take on him?
    I'd love to see more of that myself, - we have so many weird variation of Optimus and Megatron, but could that move enough units with lesser-known characters?
    Sure, I'd love to see an MP take on some guys like Lugnut and Bulkhead, but I read most of these guys and if it's not in season 1 or 2 of the G1 cartoon, they aint interested.

    I know, still, I think Barricade would be the best candidate to try this out, it's not G1, of course, but it's quite well known. I guess it could attract some G1fans and some of the Movie ones too.

    my answer to OP is No.

    Not until the full G1 cast is given the MP styled Treatment.

    A million times, yes! I want Animated, Prime, Movie, IDW, and even BW stuff in the style of G1 Masterpieces. The RTS line sorta did this (but with the Movie-chug hybrid look) with Lugnut, Lockdown, Seaspray, etc. but I might die from happiness if we got more of the non-G1 stuff in a similar aesthetic with MP quality.

    I’d have to see it.
    Otherwise, I think a MP G1 retconned Drift would be a cool figure.

    Heck yeah I've wanted to see the DJD done G1 style for ages in particular. Far as I'm concerned IDW is G1 just as Beast Wars is so all those characters could easily have cruder goofier classic designs.

    Lockdown and Slipstream- that's who I want... and an expanded Dinobots roster.

    I'd like to see a version of Windblade with a proper G1 aesthetic. If they're going to retroactively jam her into G1 anyway, at least make her fit in...

    Always depends on how the design ends up looking but as an idea? Heck yes I'd totally be into that

    I love me a G1 style car-bot, and the Decepticons are grossly out-numbered in this category. That's why I'm getting Badcube's Cap'n Huffy, and I would have got that Matrix Prime VW Camper-bot. I'd take this Barricade is a heartbeat as well.
