As for the masterpieces: after MP Prime and Megatron (V1 versions), they got way too expensive for me. I have those two, but really as icons of the series; I really prefer the G1 84 toys' look. Oh, you don't have to tell me anything. I get what your saying. As others have mentioned, MW members who hang out over there tend to keep to the Toyark and non-Transformers forums. I'll visit the site from time to time and browse around but I mostly stay in lurk mode these days. Ha! You know, Masterpiece Convoy and Destron v1 do indeed have that upgraded G1 toy appeal. It's lamentable how these upgraded toy designs are few and far between at this scale. We've discussed it in this thread before, but it would be cool to see more Masterpiece figures that are inspired by the G1 toys and not just the G1 toon. I like both so seeing more of a balance from Takara would be nice. Imagine if MP Jetfire took a few more cues from the original "borrowed" Macross design without creating an IP disaster? Ah, if only! I do hope Skids isn't the outlier in this. It would be nice to see more MPs that lean into the spirit of the G1 toys. Anyway, I got into the Masterpiece line with MP-10 and missed all the v1 releases (although I did pay the late tax for Starscream and Grimlock back in the day). Speaking of G1, my G1 toy collection is one of two small collections that I had as a kid that have survived mostly intact over the years. Sure, I lost my Soundwave and I had to restore broken accessories on Starscream, Defensor, and Metroplex, but otherwise most of my G1 toys are in good shape and I'm happy I still have them. I've been buying the Japanese reissues to replace missing toys (like Soundwave) and add a few that I didn't have back in the day (like Soundblaster, Thundercracker, and Skywarp). I also have three incomplete G1 Combiners that I've been thinking of finally completing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
