Takara Guy: Guys! The fans want a re-release of Masterpiece Optimus!

Other Takara Guy: Well we certainly cannot put something that would be a complete re-release.

Takara Guy: Then what will we do?

Other Takara Guy:


Apparently this was their thought process. Not to say it doesn't look good, it's just that this should be something else, like, oh I dunno, final battle Optimus with awesome paint-apps minus the black dot that was supposed to be where he was shot? I mean... Kind of meh.

I'm trying not to want this.

I am failing.

I really want a trailer for it in vehicle mode. I wonder if some third party will oblige me.

What I REALLY want, however, is a Masterpiece Robots in Disguise Scourge.

I could see this happening eventually, too (obviously preceded by a Masterpiece G2 Laser Prime).

I'm sure it will be awhile, but I'm betting Takara will make it happen eventually (especially if they pop out a Masterpiece G2 tank Megatron....

I do wish they'd have tried something different with the repaint scheme for once...

I agree.
Didn't we see this in one of the first MP Soundwave review about 2 months ago. His name escapes me, but didn't he place it next to Soundwave briefly as a comparison?

Beautiful figure....if it came with a trailer I'd bite.

Also, I'm guessing since this is a Japanese exclusive that that's the reason why this isn't "Masterpiece Nemesis Prime".

TakaraTomy doesn't use the U.S. names on Masterpiece figures (or on Encore figures).

everyone is worried about the damn trailer... well if you have mp-10 use that trailer, that way you have robot mode and truck mode in one display. otherwise it would be 300 like mp-10 with the trailer.

The trailer with the Autobot logo smack bang in the middle of it? Dont give the robot an identity crisis or anything ;)
I prefer no trailer anyway. Cheaper and i display it in robot mode.

At least the ones that are based on their 1985-1992 Generation One line. The "reimaginings" like United and Generations do use the US names however.

To be honest, this is the official debut piece of Black Convoy (Nemesis Prime) when it comes to the Takara G1 continuity. This excludes Alternity's Convoy (Super Black) and the "USA Editions" Nemesis Prime (a repaint of Big Convoy). That, and even then, Rodimus Convoy and "Animated" Rodimus Prime each received a "Black" (i.e. "Dark") incarnation.

So in all cases, when they did this, they decided to make a "Dark" incarnation of Convoy... Not a second "Black Version". ;)

I read the post you put that in, it is exactly what you said... not that the one line is anything diabolical or mean.

Just in before "But United, Generations and Super GT are G1 too and they use US names!" :lol: Wasn't meant to correct you or anything.

Not sure if I am following you. There was a Black Convoy Binaltech that had a Decepticon symbol. Same deco

He means chronologically in a fictional sense. If this Black Convoy were to appear in any G1 fiction, he'd probably appear at a pre-2003 point in the timeline (since Binaltech Black Convoy first appeared after 2003 and in a splinter timeline).
