MP-10

Postby Cyberpath » Sun Dec 09, 2012 9:24 am

My TF buying days are mostly behind me, but the MP-10 looks too cool to pass on. Problem is, TRU does not ship outside of the USA so I thought about possibly getting one from eBay. But first I need to know if he already has KOs out, because I don't want to get fooled. Does he?

Also, why did Hasbro paint Roller blue?

KO MP? It's a possibility, but I don't think at this time, maybe sometime down the road. Btw, subsequent later releases of Roller were indeed colored purple blue, so that might be a hold over from that time.

I'm not quit sure if the 1984 Rollers were molded in aluminum gray plastic or just painted over like the Encore version. 'cause that's what Roller/Buggy was colored in the Tomy MP version.

Masterpiece Optimus Prime

Postby Cyberpath » Sun Jan 06, 2013 9:55 am

I finally got my MP-10!

It's one thing to see him in photos and another in reality. He looks so much like the cartoon version. It's really amazing.

The colour choice for Roller is still weird; the point of the "Masterpiece" line as I understand it, is to make them as cartoon accurate as possible. And Roller was grey in the cartoon. (But the main attraction is Optimus Prime anyway, so oh well.)

He's my first and probably last MP (I spent more than I intended to. Especially with customs reaching into my pocket suddenly. The huge box probably drew their attention.) Though who knows, maybe one day I'll get the MP-13.

I'm not a collector but this one is a must for every Optimus Prime fan. Especially if you're obsessed with the original American cartoon.

How come MP-10 doesn't come with a "Megatron" gun like the MP-01? Anywhere I can get one? (official or 3rd Party.)

I love the sounds his knees make. Now I have to figure out how to transform him.
Before I go ahead and do that, is there any trick to opening his trailer? And how do you lower the trailer's "legs"? I don't want to break anything.

To reply to your Roller questions. I still have my original Hasbro G1 Prime that I got when I was 5 (1985, I'm 32 now) and his roller is a really dark blue plastic, no paint on him at all.
I carried OP around with me everywhere until his arm broke off around 1986 at which point my parents bought me a replacement which I still have as well. His roller is a really dark blue too.
