    Head over to the new version of this list, maintained by eyescovered.

    ================

    Thought this might be useful since I've seen a few questions around. Generally only covering animated series, and adding characters as it becomes clear there will be Masterpiece figures in that series.

    I'm sure I've forgotten/missed toys and characters, so feedback welcome.

    THINGS TO NOTE:
    • Substitutes are considered "best fit so far", or stand-ins. They are not recommendations of quality, may not be exact scale and may not be up to your idea of a Masterpiece. Substitutes are linked to their appropriate threads on TFW where possible.
    • Those obsessed with scale can cross-reference here. None of the alternatives listed have been cross-checked against this chart.
    • Superseded/out of scale official Masterpiece figures have been moved into their own section.
    • KOs are only listed if they fill a character role and are unique, like MP-10U. Straight knock offs are not welcome on this list.
    • List is ordered by first appearance.
    • Characters are linked to their TFWiki page.
    • Human characters can appear in multiple seasons if their look changes.
    • If a Japanese character had a Hasbro toy with a different English name, the Japanese name is listed first [JP], followed by the English name [EN].
    • Please understand that many of these pieces have been discontinued, and thus command very high prices.

    Key: Official release available | No official release, but there is a stand-in | No official release or appropriate stand-in

    Definitely subscribing to this, this is exactly the thread we need. I love that you included absolutely everything, makes it really easy to get a complete collection using this as a checklist.

    Only things are: Sixshot should be orange to correspond with your color code. And, there's also a Nemesis Prime they did based on the MP-1 mold that's now out of scale. Optimus Prime's section is also missing his second Hasbro MP-1 release (the battle damaged version), and since I noticed you did it with the Seekers, I-Gear's Faith Leader series is not included in OP's section. They also did that YotH repaint of MP-10, which I noticed wasn't included. Man, OP's listing is huuuge.

    Also, Scoria comes with an upgrade for Grimlock that makes him in-scale, which is awesome.

    Last thing: Shouldn't MP-12G be in a separate section since it's for Generation 2, technically? I'd also throw Tigertrack in his own listing (not just under Sunstreaker) since they did make him.

    Otherwise, great list, this obviously took a lot of time to put together.
    Thanks!

    Great thread!

    Don't forget Toyworld BII as a Bumblebee stand in :thumb 

    Also Chip Chase comes with Arfeather Goldbug:

    Impossible Toys have done a Daniel in the exosuit that may fit too.

    ^^ Very true, always forget there's a second Bumblebee option.

    Also, just thought of this, and I don't really know where it would go, but TT did make that Nemesis Rodimus Prime as well on the Deception side.

    Quiet you! You'll make me crumble and get one ;-)

    Good list.

    I think Scale on Sixshot is also difficult, MMC's Hex is so damn tall he works with Classics and MP's (Stand him next to Soundwave and put Buzzsaw on his arm.....not so out of place after all) so mileage will definitely vary.

    MMC's Feral's/Preds have the size, mass and quality to be MP stand ins. They just are.

    Gears: That Continuously Variable monstrosity is a better size for an MP than Cogz but......it's quality is pretty poor and not up to MP level.

    Whew, made all those updates! I think mentally I ignored Faith Leader because it came out when I had a bigger Prime and didn't want anything else :p  For now I'm keeping MP12-G in place, as it's more the exception than the rule. If more G2 makes it out, I'll consider splitting it out.

    Done! Was aware of the Impossible Toys set, but wondered about the scale. Included them anyway in case people wanted an option.

    They did! It's now in the Decepticons list, in the leader section.

    I'll put it in the list, and note that quality is known not to be great. The whole idea is to give people options! However if there's a definitive piece that blows the competition away (e.g. Quake wave), then other options will be duly obliterated.

    Nice List... For Ratbat you forgot the KFC versions ( Regular and SG) and you could add in wing thing as well. There is also a Dr.Wu Dr.Archevil

    I'll put him in! Shame that it's generally only included with Mugen Vox.

    I don't recall seeing Wing Thing in the G1 animated series, but if TT/Hasbro makes one I'll include it. I'm a bit cautious about Dr Wu's DW-P13 The Dr of Evil as it's huge compared to the Partners.

    Link for iGear Swerve doesn't work. Mind fixing it?

    Fans Toys have shown a mock-up of a possible Blaster that could be made. And KFC have hinted at making Eject and Rewind. Try adding them to the list?

    Also, SXS has made a Jetpack for MP-10 (in both Hasbro or TakaraTomy colors).

    I disagree with the putting the blaster for FT, this is not confirmed at all, but could happen one day. If anything, it would be putting the other two dinobots for FT, as they are planning to do those, but there are no pics of designs shown, so we should wait maybe.

    Swerve link fixed, SXS Jetpack variants added. Also added TFC Battle Rollar and Artist Toys Commander Packages.

    I'm wary of adding just concepts or promises from third parties at this stage. I think at least a confirmation that the figure will be produced should be required.

    For example, FansToys has confirmed its interest in completing the whole Dinobots set (including a potential remake of Grimlock if TT doesn't get there first), but these don't have confirmed model numbers or pre-orders yet.

    Is there some kind of expectation that every single toy from G1 will be made into a Masterpiece? REALLY? Sorry, but I find that pretty laughable.

    Despite having said that, I always really dig resource types of threads. I think you've done some good work here. I think something like this would work much better for "Classics-Generations" toys, though.

    Nah, no expectation at all from me. I'm really quite happy and grateful for what we have already. If they manage to finish the S1 crew, I'll be over the moon and will likely stop my buying there.

    But I figure third party will get increasingly esoteric over time as they run out of characters, some people are completionists, and everyone seems to have that one offbeat favourite individual character, so thought it would be useful.

    I am only collecting MP, so am not up to speed enough on the Classics-Generations toys to make a list. Happy for someone to steal the list and modify where necessary though! :)

    IGear Hench and Cogz are what I'm planning to use for Masterpiece Brawn and Gears for the time being. The other Minibots, Cliffjumper I'll just have to wait until we get some word about MP Bumblebee, Huffer I can get Cubex only if the others saying that figures been cancel is false and Windcharger I am so baffled about.
