    Wow, your mock up actually makes sense, and I could definitely see Takara going in a similar direction, be it an MP or Legends figure. Hell, I'd totally be okay with the wings staying on his back if they couldn't find away around it. The only issue I see is the gray/silver robo arms legs being exposed in beast mode, but I'm not really sure it can be helped.

    Inferno is high up there for me too. My most wanted are Blackarachnia, Inferno, Silverbolt, Tarantulus and of course Megatron. I mean, by that point that's pretty much everyone. And the ONLy reason Waspinator, Rhinox and Rattrap aren't on the list is that the generations figures have tied me over for now. I wouldn't object to any of them if they were announced.

    Regarding Cheetor's ankles, on mine, the feet need to be positioned in a very specific angle in order to slide in without issue.

    Waspinator is a fact that there will be a masterpiece for him, after or before megatron.


    He's just...waspinator.

    Waspinator definitely deserves a masterpiece. Him and inferno are my second favourite characters I cant choose who I would want first, they are both such funny characters and need the mp treatment :D

    This took my breath away...Boggles the mind. This gives me hope they will eventually give Rattrap the masterpiece treatment, though i am not holding my breath for that to happen anytime soon... Look at pictures of Rattrap\'s Robot mode. His Robot frame looks MUCH larger than his back pack could possibly cover due to the CGI cheating. Yes, his Generations mold was great, and it would be a great baseline, but that mold wasnt going for EXACT likeness the way Masterpiece bots do. I am not saying it is impossible, I mean look at Dinobot. Althought Dinobot is also a much larger character towering over even Primal. Rattrap comes up to around Dinobots waste making a Masterpiece version a technilogical marvel. For this, i believe we are stuck with the generations mold for a very long time :(  but apparently TT can do anything...

    (As an aside, i could see the Transmetal version of Rattrap being easier to pull off. TRANSMETAL MASTERPIECES?!?! omg......)

    Dinobot looks perfect to me! I knew they would make him and looks as I had hoped. Awesome! I am guessing that they will do Megatron next. I would love a transmetal T-rex Megatron. That was always my favorite version of him. That is just probably wishful thinking though, as it would not fit into their current line of MP Beast Wars figures. Maybe down the road? Any thoughts? I would honestly love to see Inferno and Quickstrike made into MPs as well.

    I don't know anybody, and I'm frequently wrong... I just read a lot of rumors, look at what Takara has already done, and try to extrapolate a reasonable guess from all of that.

    I fear Blackarachnia is going to end up a tremendous shellformer. Is there any part of her aside from the spider legs that carry over to both modes?

    Would anyone else be totally fine with Terrorsaur wings simply clipping off? I know that's lazy and not really transforming but they're just so big. I guess if they could fold up thin enough they could form the entirety of his back with the beast head in the middle. Speaking of his beast head, that would probably have to collapse in on itself a bit coz it's really long. Using a thin rubbery material could also be interesting. There should still be hinges but the added flexibility and texture of a soft, more pliable plastic could really add some 'flavour' to the figure.
