Actoys has posted the possible crystal clear version of upcoming 3rd party miniature MP Optimus Prime.
No words on the official release date or pricing at this moment.
From the chinese caption across the images, seems like this clear version is exclusive to Actoys Magazine.

See attached images for the prototype.

We would like to remind readers that this is not an official product from Hasbro Inc or Takara Tomy.

*angry face* kinda pissed. when i first heard about these i (admittedly foolishly) expected them to be a cheaper alternative to MP prime.


admittedly im a sucker for clear models (tho i would prefer a non colored clear one)


did we ever get any info on the mini Classics Primes?

Personally, I've learnt to assume that all 3rd-party toys & kits cost a pancreas, liver and 8 fingers at the very least. I have my local eBay sellers to thank for that (especially since they're the only lot that get their hands on this stuff and know it).

Looks good, though I'd prefer the larger, more expensive and QC-assured (mostly) version.

Personally though, I'm more interested as to whether HasTak's IP branch have planned any cease and desist orders.

Wow. An exclusive knock off. Will wonders never cease.


To bad this does nothing for me. I normally like clear molds, but it just doesn't sit right with this version of Prime.

Wonder if HASTAK is gonna get ACToys for having this as an exclusive?

It's cool but I'm expecting a crazy price for it.

...,well if he was more "clear" and not just ummm, "jewel color?" i would be more interested.

Let me guess... iGear? BTW, how does ACToys have access to KO previews, etc.? Are they in contact with KO manufacturers?

That's my guess. They seem to have the inside scoop on some KO news.

Considering the prices we've seen for the solid-color ones were like $80-95, I can't imagine the exclusive clear one is going to be any cheaper...so no dice to the "if it's around $30" crowd.

Well at least iGear finally is showing off a non photoshopped preview pic.

I'm not buying it though. And I would rather have the Crystal Convoy to be honest.

Man...I like the way it looks. I don't exactly want the clear version, but a regular version would be nice. The scale is perfect for what I want to do. Make a Megs like that and were in business.

Supposedly that's next...let's see if this one sees the light of day first, though. Not sure how well a KO masterpiece Megs would hold up either way...the real thing is fragile enough as it is.

For me, the biggest draw of a mini MP OP is that the figure would be more manageable than the real deal. I just received the 20th Anniversary DVD Edition OP and it's fahgoozalin' huge. It's cool but there's only so much I can do with it for displaying in my current residence. I don't have the real estate to have more than one of this guy around.

Now as far as the clear version, it's neat, but I'm more interested in seeing how the normal Mini MP OP looks and I mean the actual production figure, not prototypes, not CGI mock ups. I won't be buying one but I just want to see if it can live up to the quality standards of the figure it's copying.

20th Anniversary OP is amazing, puts awes for those that first opened him up.

Yeah, there's nothing that prepared me for seeing the figure in person. I've watched numerous video reviews, have gone through all the MP OP galleries here, and still when I received it yesterday, I was a kid again.

"OMGLOLROFLWTFFYIAFKBRBAFAIKIMHO that's Optimus Prime! Yeeeeeeeeeee!!!"

That was my reaction but the expletives have been deleted.

I still haven't opened it yet but I'm home this afternoon and I'm going to be doing some house cleaning. Once things are tidied up, Optimus Prime will be unleashed. :D

I'm just trying to imagine a 1:1 scale clear MP OP figure...that would be crazy awesome. :)

If only Optimus Prime had turned into a ghost in G1 then it would be possible. Maybe there'll be a clear MP Starscream in the makes.

Taking the opportunity... one repaint I'd like for the MP seeker mold would be Sunstorm. Now that would be great! Especially after having read the DW G1 comic Vol.3. And I'm talking about an official repaint, not a KO.

If they do Sunstorm, then they have to do Acid Rain too, I love that guy.

I'm already imagining a whole stand full of MP seekers :) . And BTW, if they do a bit of remolding/retooling they could do Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet.

Yeah, I'm hoping for Conehead retoolings of the Seeker mold for future MP offerings. :)

In fact, if the Mini MP OP is successful and the producer doesn't get into legal trouble, imagine mini MP Seekers. Mini MP Ghost Starscream.

Might as well come out with MP Soundwave and get the whole Season 1 Decepticon casts in there. :PEACE:

Since we're discussing possibilities, one idea I also once thought of if they made an MP Soundwave would be that his chest would be able to fit at least the main G1 '84 cassettes, instead of new MP ones.

But one thing I also would love to see was an MP Reflector, show accurate and that it was an actually working digital camera :) . Now that would really be awesome (and probably expensive...).

Screen-accurate Reflector is gonna be hard to do, because the cartoon protrays all three of them to look the same.

It'd sure be hard for all three to look the same while transforming into a camera alt mode.

Pshaw. Any well designed Transformer figure is a relatively more difficult design concept in the beginning. There are some talented folks designing for Takara and Hasbro so have some faitharooney. We needs positive thinkings to gets results!

Clear/translucent version of the small MP Prime looks cool, but I'm still waiting to see a final pic of the regular painted version as a possible addition to my smaller-scale MP Grimmy and Seekers.
