Perhaps announcing a cartoon colored Optimus to go with all the recent cartoon-based and repainted MPs? Considering how 'toon accurate Megatron is it would make a lot of sense.

Takara deleted the tweet and re-posted with this link: http://7net.omni7.jp/general/005101/170428transformers

Edit: apparently it's a "7-Eleven" repaint?

The insignia and stripes on the trailer look different.

Yeah, that's a 7-Eleven logo on the trailer alright. Well that doesn't make me happy. 7-Eleven wont even ship within Japan, they only ship orders to the stores for pickup.

TakaraTomy Masterpiece MP-10 7-11 Ultra Magnus repaint hinted and leaked

Well, we've got a bit of a double whammy for you today. Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath, we got wind of a tweet from Takara's Twitter account hinting at a new repaint of Masterpiece MP-10 Convoy - AKA Optimus Prime - coming out at some unknown point. This alone would be news -- but then, right out of nowhere; Planet Iacon's Facebook posted pictures of the upcoming figure from Weibo! As such, it can be confirmed that it's a redeco in homage not just to the store 7-11 -- but as a distinctly white cab with a blue faceplate, it also appears to finally be a White Cab Prime Ultra Magnus repaint! Check out the images and pictures below and tell us what you think in the forums!

Finally, with Ultra Magnus, my collection of 7-11 robots can be completed in the only logical manner: through absurdity.

No but really.

I'm gonna wait until we find out the actual name of this thing before jumping on the Ultra Magnus bandwagon. For all we know, it's just another white-colored Convoy toy like the white Smallest Transformer, the white and blue Sports Label figure, the while Music Label figure, CW Battle Core Optimus Prime, etc.

Whether or not it's called that, it's still for all intents and purposes Ultra Magnus. Heck, aside from the 7-11 symbol; it's practically the exact same deco as MP-02. It's clear what it's intended to be and what people would see it as and use it for whether it's called "7-11 Convoy" or Ultra Magnus.

I know that people may want to use it as Ultra Magnus, but to call it an official Ultra Magnus character toy before we know of its actual designation is jumping the gun a bit.

I mean, hey, Pepsi Convoy just looks like Convoy/Optimus with a bit of extra blues here and there, but he's his own guy.

I assume nothing. ;)

Even though I'm in the minority of those who are fans of the white Prime inside the armor concept when it comes to Magnus, I hesitate to call this Magnus until it's officially announced that it is. I don't think it will be, because of the trailer.

My interest in a Pepsi Convoy would depend on price. If it cost around what the MP-10B re-release is going for, I might consider it. If it was closer to what the Evangelion Convoy sells for these days, I would skip it.
