    Im sure they keep the "commander" theme (exept for the repaint of SS who are money-only-product), so i go for one of these:

    -Military op commander: Shockwave
    -Futur Decepticon commander: Galvatron
    -Futur Autobot commander: Rodimus prime
    -City commander: Ultra magnus + trailer (not counting much on this one)

    Shockwave deserves the treatment.

    As cool as Masterpiece Grimlock is, I'd like Takara to focus on "doing the impossible", like they did with Convoy and Megatron. Taking characters from the G1 cartoon with alt and robot mode proportions that are particularly difficult to reconcile in toy form, but using clever engineering to make it work.

    So following that line of thinking, I think Galvatron should be a strong contender for the next Masterpiece figure. Not just because he's my favourite character, but because I want to see them do for him what they did for Megatron. Figure out a unique transformation to turn that spindly-legged cannon mode into the bulky looking robot, with bonus points for having him change colour between modes. I'm sure they can do it, and the Masterpiece line is the only place that it's going to happen.

    If not Galvatron, then perhaps a character from the cartoon that we've never gotten a proper figure of... Skyfire, for example. Or even Unicron, although I wouldn't expect it to be any bigger than a normal figure. It's the clever engineering to make it show accurate... that's what I want to see. I'm not so interested in figures like Grimlock, where he's basically the same as the G1 toy, but with a lot more articulation. Not to say that he isn't cool, or that he shouldn't have been made, but you know what I mean.

    I think that a masterpiece Ironhide or Ratchet would make up for the headless vans
    Also maybe a Prowl, Smokscreen, and Silverstreak
    All of the molds could be reused for each of the different characters

    I would like to see either Bumblebee or Ironhide for the autobots, or Soundwave or Reflector for the cons.

    What I want to see - a well done triple changer (any) or Ironhide/Ratchet.

    What we will see - Rodimus or Galvatron.

    Blast Off. I think a space shuttle would be sweet. The only problem is the toy didn't transform the same as the cartoon so they'd have to take a lot of creative liberties to make it an interesting transformation.

    Rodimus Prime would be cool. He could come with a grill/photon blaster, a picnic table/shield, and a waste water pump/laser-whip for make exciting camping scenes with Hound and Swindle.

    This gets bandied about in every one of these threads, but would anyone who wants a Masterpiece Jetfire not already have a 1/48 Yammie or something? And really, I'd MUCH rather see a MP SKYFIRE. Come on, give us the cartoon design. Classics is close, but give us the blockiness of the cartoon version. It could be awesome!

    That's really the only one that, right off the top of my head, gets me excited. Unless they want to do the other Dinobots one or two at a time.

    I've got a list and i'm not bothered about the order:
    Galverton,
    Snarl,
    Rodimus,
    Devastaor,
    Blitzwing,
    Springer,
    plus loads of others that have already been said. TBH if its done right I'll like it!

    I'd love a Masterpiece Soundwave. Complete with Masterpiece Ravage, Laserbeak, and Rumble!

    For Autobots I'd like Blurr (he's my favorite, even though this would be extremely unlikely, seeing as how I'm like the only one that likes him xP) or Hot Rod (NOT Rodimus Prime, I think that'd be a bit more likely).

    Ooo, also I'd love a Masterpiece Bumblebee. Who doesn't love Bumblebee?

    And to be even MORE unlikely, I'd love Masterpiece Insecticons! =D

    I think the next 3 MP's should be Hot Rod, Rodimus Prime and Galvatron and we also need the rest of the Dinobots in MP form
