Airazor and Blackarachnia please.
I'd only be interested if the alt modes looked like real animals. I'm sorry but the animation models are just too dated for me and that is exactly what Takara is going for.
Terrorsaur and Scorponok, anyone?
I'd work two jobs and sell a kidney to get my hands on some decent Beast Wars MP's
That's how it was, so that's what people expect. In some cases, we'll never know how some looked in real life.
Take the G1 MP figures, the cartoon is dated, the alt modes are dated, but people want that for G1 MP figures as that's how they are. They don't want to spend over a $100 for a G1 MP Optimus Prime that turns into a modern day long nose semi truck.
If third party trends towards Beast Wars, my wallet will breath a sigh of relief. Not for me but I'm happy to see others excited by the potential.
i'll take non MP ver. like PE Lio Convoys
I had to look up the IDW versions of those guys, because Magmatron and Big Convoy are some of my favorite designs in all of Transformers, and Lio is in there too. IDW made some rad art, and I will always want my MPs to be cooler-looking than the cartoons - a bit like how they are in comic books. But I will take any MP Magmatron and any MP Big Convoy any way I can get them. Those 2 would be a dream come true, and who knows, maybe Big Convoy gets a shot with some enterprising 3P. It's a Convoy - and I have a crazy idea that in time, all the Convoys get made/remade in MP or to MP standards.
Certainly any 3P comes out that awesome and cool I'll consider it, and if a Big Convoy comes out from them like that, hell yeah, I'm not that beholden to any strict idea of what MP needs to be - I just need it to be awesome.
PE teased a Big Convoy, I really think big convoy from Hasbro was great minus him being a shell-former so if they can make him cool and articulated in mammoth mode while maintaining all the cool features that made him awesome in bot mode I'd be in long as the nemesis is like the universe ver. and not their own coloring
I'd really like to see a CHUG style transmetal Optimus and Megatron as well as Optimal Optimus and TM2 Megatron. The originals are great figures, but a redesign and update would be awesome.
I'm still waiting for someone to make these:
Who drew those?
Motorcycle Blackarachnia sounds familiar...
If the 3P realm turns to beast wars, I'll be done buying new figures. IMO beast wars is dumb. Instead I will start hunting down figures that were already released that I didn't have a chance to acquire.
I NEED a proper tall Dinobot. C'mon 20th anniversary~! Give me something good! I'd easily buy all 3p figures for characters in the show.
Waaaaaaaaaaaittaminnut... Gorill-iffin Primal's bot mode feet are just kinda like underneath his beast feet? Like he's wearing a pair of shoes that the soles have fallen off of? Or is he walking on top of Gavlatron's feet like snow shoes?
That's both stupid and lazy.
I'd like to see more figures like what Perfect Effect did - but in plastic and without the diecast/metal. I love the Zoids ascetic
Well luckily your opinion is not the reigning decider.
Yup. It's really not a big deal to me as I already have far too many figures and missed out on some. This gives the next generation their time in the spotlight of collecting ignorantly expensive figures
I know my wallet will be all kinds of happy.
Love how you assume that there's even a SLIGHT chance that ALL the 3P companies will start making Beast Wars homages.
Yeah...not gonna happen. The vast majority of 3P will almost certainly remain G1 for the foreseeable future, as that's where the market is. Is it so much to ask for ONE company to try their hand at making BW updates? Or a couple as side projects?
Of course, I don't know if any current 3P player can be trusted to handle the sculpting of all the organic parts. Fur, feathers, and scales are worlds apart from tech detailing and machine parts. Unless they go the route of PE's Leo Prime, which I hope they don't honestly. When I think Beast Wars I think organic beast modes, as in the cartoon. Especially if they go the Masterpiece route.
