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 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...

Soooo, then how is he talking to his red and blue self in the view screen on his arm?

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.

Don't they charge you at the time of order? How do you cancel...do they just refund your account?
Re: Updated: New Images Of Takara MP 1B Convoy Black Version (1022477)
Posted by Torneira on November 24th, 2009 @ 2:58pm CST
Yeah, he is not Nemesis Prime, although it would have made more sense to me if they had changed him into that. Just modify the symbol on his arm to represent the Decepticon insignia. But I guess they had other plans. The box clearly state that he is Cybertron Commander... so if he is a clone/droid, but with the same rank and function as the original Prime?
Re: Updated: New Images Of Takara MP 1B Convoy Black Version (1022492)

Reminds me of the dead OP from the animated Transformers movie.

Looks GREAT! Can't wait to spend $160+ on him! ;)

I hope all the retailers include the comic and Autobot logo.

My E-Hobby Omega City Gardian came with the comic, but G1 Sunstorm did not. Both were purchased from BBTS.

Looks great in black. I wish they would just release in the USA.

Hey I apozigize if Im getting a little off topic but I see this forum is getting alot of views so I wanted to ask a question:

Does anybody have any solutions to make decals stick that wont hold ??? Of course without permantaly damaging the plastic. I just bought the Toys-R-Us Insecticons and some decals keep peeling off. I tried rubber cement but this does not work. Anybody have a fix for this common problem ??? Please let me know...Thanks

I pre-ordered with Robot Kingdom and they do charge you up front for pre-orders. However, I just sent them an e-mail to cancel the order and they refunded me via Paypal.

I would love to own one of these molds, since I missed out the first time they came out, and Black Convoy seems the better deal for me right now out of all the available versions. Ultra Magnus is ugly. MP-04 is an extra $60 for a trailer I don't care for. Black Convoy just oozes awesome. It may be expensive now, but wait a few years for the inevitable price inflation and $150 would seem pretty cheap.

Must.... resist.... buying this.

I must say though, it's looking better all the time and I feel somewhat better spending 150 on this then I did on Grimlock. At least this guy PROBABLY won't show up in the US next year.

Received MP01B today. Is it common to have some of the plastic parts pop off during transformation? Like the back piece that opens to let Optimus' head come out, or the headlight panels?

My version did NOT come with the comic, so I don't know if it's bootleg or whatever, but I've heard of a version without a comic from this board or something.

It's also smaller than I remember. Then again, maybe I've gotten bigger since I last saw a Masterpiece Prime mold.

Plastic pop off that you mentioned i guess is common, mine is like that too.

Yours shd be Hong Kong Version. It shd come with metal plate. Comic version is only for Japan version, release in January 2010.

Size wise is the same as old MP1 or MP4.

Ah, well. I suppose someone will just scan the comic and put it on the internet anyway.

I thought MP01B was supposed to be an e-hobby exclusive? But there's a Hong Kong version too? With my luck, there will eventually be a U.S. version for $60 USD one day.

I can't really justify the funds to get another version of this mold. Maybe in more prosperous times, but for now it's just a bit superfluous.

For some strange reason though, I simply must have one of those little black bags with the Autobot symbol.
