I think BW Megatron is more likely than G1 Megatron, as far as MPs go. Whether or not it STOPS there, and we get a Dinobot or Cheetor, I don't know. But I do believe Takara will consider Waspinator, Rhinox, and Rattrap done. They may decide to go ahead and round out the Maximal cast, as all it would take is Cheetor and Dinobot.
An MP Dinobot that's equal to, or taller than Primal, and a Cheetor that's a bit larger than a typical deluxe would snap all of them into appropriate scale, with Rhinox being a scoosh undersized but passable.
I could see Takara rereleasing the generations figures with premium paint jobs (and maybe some minor remoulding) under the masterpiece banner like the movie Bee and Starscream. Especially if more MP BW were produced.
Cheetor is a mess, better sticking with the original 96 mould. Dinobot is better, the takara release looks pretty good. But both are a result of the Universe line which went a bit weird for my tastes. Hounds the only one that didnt come out compromised in some way.
So basically Im saying I'd rather they redo do those two. Plus Dinobot really needs to be a bit bigger.
Thinking about this now it suddenly seems odd we haven't had a decent Cheetor. It struck me for a long time he was *the* character that defined Beast Wars. Problem is Takara don't often seem to create new moulds, and we ain't getting a Titans Return Cheetor any time soon.
U. Cheetor genuinely has the greatest altmode ever done. I mean that is spot on.
But here's the thing: It's actually not a bad robot. Not a great robot, no, but there are a ton that are quite a but worse. However, it *is* an absolutely horrible Cheetor. It's like they tried to merge every single version of Cheetor into one mold, instead of updating the first version with a great beast mode, like everyone wanted. I'm convinced though that if you were to redo it as a different character, then it would get much better reception. make it a King Cheetah instead of a regular one, as a new character, or an ocelot, or even a cougar (maybe as BW version of an animated Prowl inspired character). Cheetor's biggest downfall is they tried to pass it off as Cheetor.
Hm, I see what you guys mean Llama. It's certainly an Optimus Primal isn't it! I guess it's one of those things we'll need to see a lot more of to work out how good it is, as currently it still looks pretty similar to the original toy!
Eh, I dunno. I mean, it does look good. But I'm still not sure. That said, I said similar things about MP Sideswipe. Then I had a play with G2 'Wipe in person. And then bought one. This may be the same.
