I wonder if it's just the cab. Trailer looks pretty much the same. And I don't really need another trailer. Unless they managed to come up with a better trailer hitch than lousy hitch he has now.

I'm glad it's happening, but of all the characters who really need updated MP figures to fit in with the modern MP aesthetics the seekers probably need it more.

Looks cool to me.
For a start it doesn't look like the gun folds up anymore, so it should be a bit more stable.
Also I have MP-10 and while it was cool I have had a few issues. One of the flaps that cover the wheels on the legs broke off.
I would kinda like to see Has-Tak or 3rd Party make an MP version of the Evergreen design currently employed in the ongoing IDW Optimus Prime comic.

I like it, although it's a bit premature to really get a good impression. What I do see is that he has in comparison to MP-10 a lot of panels going on, just like Megatron.

This really looks awesome. I don't have all the excitement I did for MP-10, but this is really exciting. I think that this is like the Masterpiece Prime for those(like me) who can't find MP-10 anymore. Anyway, truck mode is an improvement, and I guess bot mode hs a few points added, but is pretty much the same. If this has the complexity and/or the accessories like MP-36, I'm sold. Thank you HasTak! ;)^

=P~

Now that's the Optimus Prime I've wanted since I was 4! Looks like his entire torso uses "fake" truck parts (windows and grill at least), I wonder how people will feel about that? As far as I'm concerned it's a small sacrifice for a perfect cartoon likeness.

But please don't come with the trailer, I've got enough of those that I'll never look at again, it's just an extra cost for something I don't have room to display. At least give us a with and without option.

Proof in the pie is in the eating!

Wait for the final painted images. Same with the trailer. The iconic box design will never change(a glorified container is all but the inside is the meat of it all! Who knows, maybe Roller will be 6w drive like THS02)? Another Spike would be optional. Will his energon ax be MP10 style of MP01 derivative?

Too many variables..............

Still, will BE getting him! :x

Can't really judge yet. I remember when we saw a grey prototype of MP-36, and people didn't like it. Then a lot of them turned around once they saw it in color and in proper pictures. I'm sure the same thing will happen here, and a fair amount of people will eventually like this.

I feel at this point takara is waiting for 3rd parties and is taking notes, cause for the most part, 3rd parties beat them to it almost every time. so i'm pretty sure they lost the ability to release MP's (from g1) before a 3rd party .

On the fence bout this one... looks great and the previous mp primes suffered in the legs especially when in truck mode. But yeah this was low on the want lists.
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

Well, lots of thoughts this time around.

First off, let me just say, no matter how awesome this is, or how bad, or how much I may end up loving it or hating it, MP-10 is still an awesome figure, and will always have a place in my collection, with the other primes, if nothing else.


On to this new guy.....


I like what I see. I'm always down for a new, updated figure. I don't believe in the phrase "good enough". Progress always moves forward. I am totally down for this guy, so far.

Though I, too, would like to see some of the characters that haven't been made yet get the MP treatment, it doesn't bother me. See, the 3rd party market has provided for most of those needs, so my itch is scratched. Maybe if that wasn't the case, I'd be more upset, but it is, and I'm not.

In the end, though, I'll have to wait till I've got it in hand to say yea or nae difinitivly.

Densh, you continue to surprise me. I know you're no fan of the cartoon accuracy, but also love experiencing new molds and different takes on the same thing. An open mind is a good mind ;)^

I'm trying to reserve judgement. Something about him doesn't quite look right. But it IS just a grainy picture (of a picture) of a grey prototype. I take this "reveal" as nothing more than a confirmation that it's a real thing. I need to see more before I cry joy/sadness.

So it's MP-01 but scaled down and possibly able to bend forward this time. Meh.

In my opinion the extreme cartoon accuracy means it should be scrapped. Because in Optimus' case, extreme cartoon accuracy is being adherent to Floro Dery's vandalism of Shohei Kohara's character models. It means his truck mode is missing the stripe it's supposed to have, magically disappearing kibble, his bumper magically turns into a diaper...

I dont get this, the toy here seems to be a completely different mold and transformation to MP-01. It doesnt even reuse the same truck parts in robot mode.

MP-10 was closer to a down scaled MP-01 since they shared a very similar transformation.
