A new day, a new gallery! Yesterday's gallery of Platinum Edition Starscream was just the beginning, now we have Year Of The Horse Optimus ready to grace your screens! Based on the MP-10 mold, this redeco features the usual Optimus Prime colors in a much darker, tone, with gold chrome and black thrown in the mix. Makes for an eye catching and striking difference from the previous uses of the mold, especially that translucent trailer!

Unfortunately, the other major change to this version is a lack of Roller. But, it seems to be a small price to pay to make MP-10 Optimus available to everyone again, seeing as he was somewhat difficult to obtain in several US markets. Don't let this chance slip through your fingers! Take a look at our gallery, let it entice you (you know it will!) and then go and nab this guy for your collection!

Much like YOTH Starscream, this shared exclusive can be obtained through BBTS or TRU, and it's available now.

Here's a sampling to get you started, and clicking on any of the pictures below will take you to the full gallery:

nice galleries as always :)

stay puft starscream... i have once already. while hes got some fetching new colors i dont have the room. also his price point kills me. maybe if he warms my TRU's shelves long enough theyll put him on sale. i might consider it...

prime and his blingy chrome get a lot of hate, but i love him! i liked him in the first pics i saw, and fell in love with him when i got him in hand. that dark red is really nice. bits of black break it up nicely and isnt over done. not sure why i like the translucent red on the crotch piece so much. and most noticeable quality? those bright blue eyes! theyre so dreamy...

The only reason I'd get Pimptimus Prime is to use it as a G2 MP Prime.

Darker colors + garish gold = :G2BOT:

Why would they call it 'platinum edition' and paint him gold?

Also, can anyone explain why the autobot logo is melted on one side of the trailer doors?

Hey, that's kinda brilliant. You "takaratised" the Hasbro version that way. Sure, straightly buying the Takara version would have been less expensive and less trouble. But now, you do have a spare MP-10. Do, you plan to keep the spare or sell it to someone who missed out on the mold?

The Autobot symbol is a special one as it incorporates (part of) the kanji for "Snake", 蛇 (hebi). Same goes for Prime's right shoulder.

Why "snake"? Isn't it the year of the HORSE?

Ok, I'm tired of seeing the same "why is Optimus gold?" questions over and over again so here is the answer as completely as I can explain it. Optimus is gold and red more because it has more to do with the "Year of the Horse" than "Platinum Edition." Red means happiness and luck. Gold means prosperity. If you look at anything that has to do with Chinese new year, it's always red and gold in color. Just Google it and look at the pictures. The autobot symbol on Optimus is merged with horse in Chinese character.

There are also 5 elements that associates with each year along with the zodiac animals. Water, Fire, Metal, Wood, and Earth. This year is the year of the Horse but also the year of Metal. So since metal is associated with gold and shares the same character in Chinese, it is considered a lucky element for getting rich. The toymakers probably wanted to have the luck of prosperity so they smacked the golden horse symbol on Optimus. It may look tacky to westerners but it's the thousands year old colors of luck and prosperity in most of Asia.

I mainly got the YOTH Prime to swap eyes with my Takara MP-10 (who looks GREAT with bright baby blues), but YOTH Prime is pretty awesome in his own right. Glad I got him.

Seibertron.com continues to bring you new high quality galleries! Today the lens falls on two figures from the Transformers Prime Weaponizer range, which were essentially that lines Leader Class with integrated weapons systems. First up we have the Bumblebee, however this is the later variant featuring thicker black stripes than the initial run. The first run figure's gallery with the thinner stripes can be found by clicking here. Next we have Ultra Magnus from the Transformers Platinum line. This figure is a retool/redeco of the Transformers Prime: Robots in Disguise Weaponizer Optimus Prime mold complete with shoulder pylons, new head, and massive Forge of Solus Prime. Enjoy the full high quality galleries by clicking the images or links below:

Hey Seibertron, you have any issues w/ Magnus? Mine has a ratchet joint in one of his knees that doesn't work. The leg works fine, btw, I'm just wondering.
Also, any idea why the top portion of his shoulder pylons slide outward???

My guess is to make the pylons match the animation model (I display my magnus that way.)

LOL at the way Magnus is holding that hammer. BTW, does TRU still sell the Magnus with a blue face? I may pick him up if he goes on sale, but not if he ate Willie Wonka's Three Course Gum.

I passed on this Magnus several times because of the blue face and the red hands. Even if I fond the white faced version I still don't know if I could get passed the red hands.

The red hands don't bother me. This is the best Prime Ultra Magnus. His scale, guns and the hammer of Solis Prime are tremendous. Looks great with the rest of the Prime line.

That said, he's not worth $60 unless you love the character. Toys R Us had a ton of sales for him back in December. I picked mine up for $35. Well worth it for that price.

Yup! Got mine for $35 too. Only it was during the Cyber Monday sale in November.

You'd that that since the Optimus toys were finished the show designers would've made Ultra Magnus an actually do-able retool instead of one that's makes blatantly clear in alt mode that the mold wasn't designed for him.

If I recall correctly, $50 was the price point of the Supremes like Unicron, Omega Supreme and Supreme Starscream. I remember paying that for Unicron and Omega Supreme but I can't remember exactly what I paid for Starscream since I bought him along with a bunch of Cybertron toys at a Toys R Us that had the entirety of the first wave released at the same time which I never seen before except for the movie toys. I'm assuming Starscream was the same since he was the same class size as those.

Yep, I recall paying $50 for each of the ones I got: Armada Unicron, Energon Omega Surpeme, Cybertron Starscream, and Cybertron Cybertron Primus w/ Unicron head (to this day, I still regret missing out on the black Energon Unicron).

Then when Amazon did their 25th Anniversary Unicron redeco of Takara's "Welcome to Transformers 2010" Unicron, I recall paying somewhere around $60-$65, so it's really gone up since, with Platinum Edition Omega Supreme and Supreme Starscream each being at least $100. :|

I don't mean to be that guy, but I just don't think these figures are special enough to warrant the high price points. Starscream definitely is not worth $109 (based on the original 2005 price point of $50, we're talking about 120% more expensive than it was back then). I think the gold accents on YOTH Prime are pretty cool, but giving him a clear trailer just feels inconsistent; I think they should have gold blinged out the trailer instead to make the whole figure feel more cohesive. I don't know man, the only thing exciting me about Transformers lately are the overhauled Beast Wars figures, leader class Jetfire, and (surprisingly) Evasion Mode Prime from Age of Extinction.

Sorry I had to vent!

I have the same problem with my Platinum Edition Starscream. In fact, I exchanged the first one because of those problems, and the second one still had a few paint chips and blemishes. I think it's, unfortunately, a problem endemic to this figure's production run. Avoid transforming it to make sure you're not rubbing any more paint off. My solution is to find a Sharpie or similar permantent ink-paint marker with a similar metallic red hue and touch up the rough spots. If you get the stuff that dries in seconds, you'll get the best results. I've used these pens to touch up my figures before, and it works like a charm. :)

Look like a factory defect. If it's just the paint, the only solution is to repaint it yourself. It suck a lot, but if you ordered online, you're pretty much screwed. I had my fair share on factory errors myself and we cant do anything about it.

Return it to the seller? Lol pay up more shipping fees and risk never having that toy again. Return it to Hasbro? HA! You pay more shipping fees and they will trade it for something completely random of "equal" value.

Factory error. The ironic risk of buying brand new.

I have it in hand (Great set, especially on sale). The Chrome is definitely greenish. I totally had it displayed in a room with lime green paint, so I wasn't sure at first whether it was the actual chrome. It is though, it looks a tad green in any light
