This should not be mistaken for the Platinum Edition "Year of the Snake" figure since this is TakaraTomy while the Platinum Edition/"Year of the Chinese Zodiac Animal" toys are Hasbro Asia.

Um, I'm fairly certain this is being marketed by Hasbro Asia, not Takara. If it's from Takara, it would've had "Takara" tampo'd on the stand, not "Hasbro". :???:

With DOTM "Year of the Dragon" OP and Hong Kong Metroplex being the peculiar exceptions, TransformersAsia.com promotes Takara's Asian exclusives.

If this is a Hasbro Asia release, then it's another oddity for this site to promote it. :???:

Huh. Could've sworn Transformers Asia was run by Hasbro. Whoops. :oops:

Would it be too much to ask for a domestic reissue? The number of these on store shelves was pathetic... especially in Canada (something like 2-4 per store)... You'd think if they made lots of any Masterpiece figure it would be Optimus. And no the YotH version (if this is truly what it is) is not something I'd like over a regular Optimus. Oh, and the stand would be nice as well.

Herm, if the price is OK to get this, I may have to see if I can, still need that toy, plus I like stands. But I have to admit, the stand is kinda bland and meh.

Hopefully the price for this re-issue is fair, basically around the same price as the TRU release. It's a great chance for those who missed out on the initial TT production run and the TRU release.

WANT.

Seriously... it might be time to divest myself of all Movie and TF Prime figures and invest solely in Masterpieces.

:sad:

The latter is chrome (as it was on all previous releases), the former is not (it's just shiny due to the lighting).

Not at all. The faceplate is painted as it has in his previous releases, and the Matrix's cover panel has always been chromed.

Definitely have mixed feelings here. Personally it's an easy pass for me as the stand isn't enough to justify getting another MP-10.

However it's great that people who initially missed out on him get another shot at getting him. Hopefully the same will be true for MP-11.

I missed out on MP10 initially so I will be picking him up if I catch the pre-order in time and depending on who carries it BBTS, Robotkingom. Have to add cost to shipping might be cheaper to visit ebay so we will see.

I got one of those stand with MP Soundwave. It took me totally by surprise.

What's the stand like in hand? To me it looks quite cheap and nasty.

The ball joints are all stiff and sturdy. I haven't used it with large MPs, in fact I've only used it for BH voyager OP and a notInsecticon so far but it's definitely ok for medium size figures.

If it helps MP10 is shelf warming nicely in the UK.

That hurts my soul.

Trade you a TRU Soundwave?

Is this the year of the horse OP that Canada TRU listed? or something different?

Something different.

It's a TakaraTomy Asia exclusive. The "Year of the Chinese Zodiac animal" figures are Hasbro Asia products.
