I can't really justify getting another Masterpiece what with the price and storage space and future transport costs and all but DAYAMN that looks good!

I can't help but notice in the last picture that the chest panels are not aligned... a repeat of a "common problem"? Could anyone tell us? :sad:

I know a lot of people complained abt this. Recently i managed to dig out my old first issue MP Optimus, and i look into his chest panel.... In fact it doesnt really align even that first production...
Anyway i dont really bother abt that....

Yeah, faction logo is molded.... Business point of view it is not cost effective to remold the thing in order to call him Nemesis Prime...
Thats why it is just straight repaint and called him a clone of convoy.... In fact many of them according to the comic...

Except that he's not evil. He's the same Convoy/Optimus Prime that we all know and like. Just in his Black Body upgrade (again).

I'm really on the fence with this guy. He looks kinda cool, but do I really need another MP Prime mold? I already have the 25th Anniversary Prime(my first version of the mold), the DVD Edition(got as a gift), the MP-04(just had to have the trailer), and of course the Ultra Magnus version. I have him on preorder, but I'm really considering canceling.

In the story, he had Wheeljack and Ga'mede create 21 duplicates of his Black Bodied self to help him fight against Galvatron II. This figure must then represent one of those 21 "Eldedroids". But it's still not evil.

What I wanna know is, if he's also talking to Rodimus Prime, does that mean that Rodimus is still alive? And how did he get the Matrix back? Last we saw him he was his Hot Rod self again as a Micromaster. How/why did he lose the Matrix and how did he get it back? And why does he have it if Optimus is back? So many questions brought up by one image. :-B

Man, that is certified badass. And that badge is extra cool. But there's just no room in my collection for another MP Prime. I usually save Nemesis Prime (I know this isn't, but to me it is) for the OP molds I don't care to get the normal version of. So I don't think I'll make an exception here. But dang, does that look fine.

Definitely a cool black OP/Convoy. I cancelled my pre-order months ago because I had received the 20th Anniversary Edition Optimus Prime first and was very happy with it so I decided to not get the black repaint.

The Japanese continuity isn't meant to make sense, hehe. Let the shopping commence!

Don't they charge you at the time of order? How do you cancel...do they just refund your account?
