From the wild world of 4chan we have our first hint at the identity of MP-15. Based on the silhouette it will be a repaint of MP-10 Convoy 2.0. Ultra Magnus or Nemesis Prime perhaps? Check out the teaser below and let the speculation begin!

This better be a Ultra Magnus with a proper City Commander upgrade Armor.

If it has a new trailer that gives the mold a True Ultra Magnus look would that at least be considered a new mold although a trailer only?

FINALLY a accurate G1 Huffer!!! Looks like they really are doing masterpieces for all the 84 transformers!

But I'm crossing my fingers for a Pipes repaint!

If this is Ultra Magnus, I'm REALLY hoping he comes with the proper trailer/armor and isn't just a "white Prime" straight repaint. If they come out with a proper Magnus, I will be happier than a pig in mud! This will be the last of my "I want without question" figures :grin: I got Grimlock, Soundwave is coming, and Magnus rounds out my top 3 favorite characters. Please oh please oh please let it be him with accurate trailer/armor!!

I find this oddly amusing. MPs of Huffer and Pipes, that is, which I really would consider getting.

As it stands though....

I will go only with new molds this time TAKARA.

Or whatever other than optimus or starscream repaints

If this is Ultra Magnus, they KNOW they can't pull off another white repaint and let it sell. It's gotta have a new trailer.

I'd be more apt to believe in a Nemesis Prime.

Would buy Nemesisisisis Prime. Would buy white Prime with Magnus armor/trailer. Would not buy white Prime.

Right, just a crazy theory!!

I reckon it's Ginrai!

You see, the visible text there is 神秘的なシルエ -

Shinpitekina Shirue - I think the missing part is tto, making it Mysterious Silhouette- but that's not the point.

The first character can be read as Jin, 神. As in 超神; CHOUJIN!

Choujin Masterforce! :D I think the word itself has been left as a clue! It wouldn't be the most cryptic clue ever used... Remember the Rodimus reveal?



Well, that's my theory and I'm sticking to it. ;)

A forearm repainted MP-10 isn't gonna get many buyers.
Sorry, but it's either gonna be Magnus, Nemesis or Shattered Glass.


But here's a slightly more reasonable theory. A grey repaint to homage his dead body in the Movie or a translucent ghostly version

I figured it went without saying that it'd include a trailer of some kind, for the "Super Ginrai" or Powermaster mode; the opinion of Magnus with trailer is a popular one, Ginrai's would be no more complicated.

As for your suggestion... We must remember that it is unlikely they'll release the robot alone, so any colour change or theme would apply to his packed-in trailer as well. It's grey already, and a ghost trailer would be a funny thing to see! ;)

If we're sticking to reasonable repaint theories, then I'd say G2. No new tooling is required, and it's different enough that people may bite.
Re: MP-15 Teaser (1424265)
Posted by Bubbah on September 26th, 2012 @ 4:50pm CDT
Hmm, I know this theory has been tossed around about alternating Bots & Cons...

10 - Prime
11 - Starscream
12 - Sideswipe
13 - Soundwave
14 - Red Alert
15 - ???

Which if that's true, I'm guessing we're looking at Nemesis Prime. Unless they really piss people off and do Motormaster (because since it's the MP-10 mold, there goes hope of him in a Combiner).

But I still really want to hold out hope for Ultra Magnus with a proper trailer/armor. :grin:

If Hasbro and Takara are serious about turning Masterpiece into a main line of a number of figures a year, then they need to stay away from the clutching-at-straws repaints. I'm going with Ultra Magnus. A proper Ultra Magnus.

Posted by Stumpybot on September 26th, 2012 @ 6:02pm CDT
i love when these things show up the wild speculation goes to new levels of ambitious and the arguments for the insanely ambitious concepts that we will blatantly never see go into overdrive. Why post a silhouette for the MP10 mold if its for a magnus with armour? why hold back something so major we would literally cream ourselves at any sort of confirmation?
Personally, till ive got MP soundwave in hand i dont give a flying crap about any other MP that may be released (except Galvatron, id wet myself at that)

Logically i think its an MP10 repaint, nothing more, nothing less, maybe a re-release without the trailer and a few fixes. Nemesis Prime/Black Convoy is my hope (if you can call it hope) as im a whore for black repaints. we had a massive run of new molds (Grimlock, Robimus, MP10, Sideswipe, Soundwave) and a few retools (starscream, Sunstorm, Red Alert) to come, i can honestly see a repaint to make use of the engineering of the MP10 (god knows MP1 got reused enough). I know theres an attitude of 'if its magnus it must have a trailer as armour' but seriously, the cost of engineering a GOOD mp trailer that breaks down into functional armour... the engineering cost of that would push the price sky high. theres a would of difference between what fansproject put out as their trailer and the G1 version, and classics prime sure as heck isnt MP10.

repaints fund new designs guys

If this albino prime doesn't involve proper trailer armor, I'll flat out refuse to buy it. I realize the world doesn't revolve around me, but I'm sure a LOT of other masterpiece collectors feel the same way. [-(

Sharted Glass MP Optimus
G2 colored MP Optimus
Nemesis MP Prime
Beast Wars color MP Prime
BumbleBee colored MP prime
KOLD MP Prime
Clear Ghost MP Prime
BAPE MP Prime
Pepsi MP Prime
Sleeper MP Prime
PTSD DOTM MP Prime


IT COULD BE FRIGGIN ANYTHING...

but MP magnus, with a trailer.
That would just be, too smart of a move.

And don't tell me you wouldn't gladly pay 299$ for a proper MP Magnus.
I'd pay upwards of 399$, considering small 1/60 Macross fighters go for that, I don't see why it wouldn't, especially since it would be a JP only release.

AdamPrime, I like the way you think. :D

If they were to give us a Masterpiece Ginrai, I would die of happiness.

...BUT, sadly, I do not believe that a simple redeco of MP-10 (with or without a new super mode trailer) would be a justifiable way of giving us an MP Ginrai. Ginrai would need, no, deserve his own mold since the the only thing he really has in common with Convoy/Optimus on an identical level is his head. Everything else about his body is a new design, different from Convoy/Optimus. Even the place meant of his smokestacks and windshields is different. to do true justice to the character, Ginrai should have his own mold. :-B

Yes, G1 Ultra Magnus is just a white Optimus with spiffy armor.
Yes, it's cannon.

I was under the impression that the new direction of the masterpiece line was to be Scalable G1 Cartoon Accurate Depictions of the Characters. Am I making this up or is this wishful thinking?

IF this is true, than really Ultra Magnus is the only option unless Takara is selling the "Dead" or even "Undead" Optimus from the movie or Season 3. IF its a "Proper Ultra Magnus" as already quoted, I would happily dish out $300+ for a Takara exclusive. Potentially tho, they will have already made money on the mold thru MP-10 and TRU Exclusive hopefully keeping price in line with MP-10's Takara Price Tag as they are only engineering the trailer?

IF its any MP-10 repaint and NOT a proper Magnus, the whole Masterpiece line is jeopardized... IMHO.

Posted by REMINATOR on September 26th, 2012 @ 10:09pm CDT
I'm just curious, how would the fandom feel if TTomy pull out a stunt like Igear PP01 Ultra which they would release the white Magnus robot cab first and then promise the trailer to be followed some where down the road? As we know, Igear never release the armor til this day. :twisted: :twisted:
For me, it's a win-win whether it's just a white Magnus or the Ultra version since I collect them both. As long it's not another Prime repaint black/gray/Nemesis/Scourge, I'm all happy.
Re: MP-15 Teaser (1424344)
Posted by megatronus on September 26th, 2012 @ 10:15pm CDT
I agree with what most have expressed. The two most likely options are:

-Ultra Magnus
-Nemesis Prime

I throw my hat in with everyone else who wants a 'proper' Ultra Magnus. I would HAPPILY pay upwards of $300 for it if he comes with the trailer. :DANCE:

BUT I find this unlikely, because Ultra Magnus isn't as well known state side and might be a harder sell... that combined with the extra costs...

OTOH, they might be trying a show of force by showing up Fansproject and winning back a few fans to the official brand...

Nah, too risky. Nemesis Prime it is. :HEADHURTS:

They don't have to stick to that but it looks like they will. I'm a little dissapointed if it will just be a white Prime in armor but that isn't enough to stop me buying it. The MP10 mold is very impressive. Please give us the armor this time so we can have a proper Ultra Magnus.

Above Quote -

"...BUT I find this unlikely, because Ultra Magnus isn't as well known state side and might be a harder sell... that combined with the extra costs..."


I respectively disagree with Ultra Magnus not being well known here in the states... Movie, Season 3, Headmasters, Animated, Prime Toyline. Nemesis/Sleep convoy aren't nearly as well known. AND we did see Rodimus whom I think would have similar recognition factor as Magnus.

I definately doubt we would see a US Release and I doubt it would be a hot seller UNLESS it includes the trailer.

I fear it's only wishful thinking however. How would the Trailer Armor impact Ultra Magnus' height? Would that be a potential issue as it could upset the "scalability" factor?

There's always the possibility of a white repaint for MP-15 and then, after we've all shelled out the cash, MP-15A is optional armor. Goodbye, $$$!

I believe it is. Takara seems to be really striving for perfection with regards to bot mode accuracy with the current run of MP's, and I believe that this (assuming it is Magnus) will be no exception. They know all too well that white Prime does not a cartoon accurate Ultra Magnus make. He needs a trailer. That trailer needs to convert into armor that makes him appear as he did in the cartoons and I think that finally, that's what we'll be getting.
Re: MP-15 Teaser (1424383)

I'm pretty sure it will be an Armored Ultra Magnus. Remember a while ago Takara Tomy designer Shogo posted a picture of MP10 in a cut up G1 trailer as a mock up of what they could do with Ultra Magnus. I'm sure they have found a way to make the MP10 mold work with a trailer and of course look better than just the truck with the legs extended.

If you never saw the mock up, here it is:
