I would be in on an MBr in a heartbeat. Through the last several years I've owned two original AFM's and two weeks ago received an AFMr and was more than pleased with the build quality. The topper/lighting/display are killer, so if they up the ante on an MB I can only imagine some of the possibilities. Owning an original MB in the past makes me think about the potentials. Hopefully this comes to fruition and happens soon.
Originally was against the remakes also and was hoping that the titles would be BBBr, CCr, or KPr first, but I've owned originals and once I received my MMr and AFMr my thought process changed on this.
For the price of a new remake you get a beater original with things breaking and a full time job servicing the damn thing. My family likes playing these games and so do I, so bring on the MBr with a crazy topper that has a swimming/moving creature or a Frankenstein that has glowing eyes and bolts sticking out of his neck. Sounds good to me.
