I'm really finding it hard to justify spending $200+ on him ... and i've bought every Masterpiece from Takara.

Am I really the only person that doesn't give a crap about another Prime figure? Of all the different characters that span the multitude of timelines, the 10th release in the series is already another G1 Optimus? Seriously, how can you even call it a "masterpiece" if you had to have a do-over?

Wake me up in 20 years when they finally get around to a masterpiece Soundwave.

A bonus is this should be pretty close to being in scale with Classics/Henkei/Generations/United deluxe Autobot cars, though it will probably still be slightly relatively too small.

I don't think that's right.

MP Rodimus is like nearly a foot tall. His vehicle mode is HUGE. There's just no way this is in scale with Classics Autobot cars.

I don't know.

How many MP Convoys have we seen so far? 4. :BOOM: How many MP Starcreams? 3. Not including US releases or repaints. :-?

How many Convoys in the last year alone? When they were working on a new mold the whole time? :BANG_HEAD:

Yeah. I think Takara is pretty cheap.

MP-10 should have been Galvatron.

I was really hoping he'd be in scale with Classics. That would be the only reason I'd justify getting another MP Prime.

Unless this guy gets down to $150, it's not for me. :(

I think classics are not scaled, but their vehicle modes are around 1:32 ish. (At least most of the cars).

Honestly, it's hard to tell from the pics, but that prime would be a little larger than 1:32. However, that's if you're being absolute about scale.

I think you are right, that this MP Prime would fit in with classics. The scale won't be perfect, but close enough. ;)

And if you're too stickler about scale, then Binaltechs are more your gig than classics. To my knowledge, Binaltechs/Alternators are the only (and Alternity) Transformers line that is TRUE TO SCALE.

I didn't say that MP Rodimus was in scale with them, though he's definitely NOT a foot tall. The original MP Convoy is almost exactly a foot tall, and towers over MP Roddy:
http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... 285/2/487/

I don't have a MP-09, but it looks like he's maybe nine or ten inches tall at most; he's only slightly taller than MP Grimlock.

Scalewise MP-09 is a huge mess anyway, as it is probably about 1:24 in Hot Rod's car mode (which is based in an actual car) and is probably supposed to be somewhat smaller in scale in Rodimus Prime's Space Winnebago mode, though I have no idea how big a Space Winnebago SHOULD be. It certainly bears little real-world scale resemblance to MP-01.

MP-10 should be slightly taller than iGear's KO of MP-01 (which is the same height as Mp-03 etc.). It remains to be seen how big it will end up be in truck mode, but I would guess a fair bit bigger since it will need to have internal room for the driver.

The iGear KO is a only a slight bit bigger than Classics/Henkei Convoy in vehicle mode, which is not in scale with the deluxe cars (if I had to guess I'd say it's about 1:40 or so; the deluxe cars seem to be about 1:35).

I'd do a size comparison photo of MP-01, the iGear KO, and G1 Convoy in truck mode, but I'm too lazy to transform my MP-01 into truck mode.

My understanding is that the G1 Convoy is 1:48; the G1 Autobot cars are about 1:35.

Nope, not paying $250 for an upscaled Hybrid Style Convoy. I just picked up MP-01L for $90 in my local E-mart here in Seoul. That mould for Optimus Prime is awesome. Pre-order cancelled. Happy shelf warming.

Agreed.

Of course I don't even want to think about MP Starscream as far as relative scales go. Unless he mass shifts smaller when transforming into robot mode he should be over twice as tall as Prime (based on their relative vehicle sizes), but that's pretty common knowledge.

Scale BS aside, I do like my Autobots to roughly match in scale in vehicle mode.

Looks awesome.

I always thought that the original MP Prime was a bit too big actually so this resized one that will be in perfect scale with Grimlock and Rodimus is great.

I'm planning on selling my MP Megatron anyway so am looking forward to getting a new one that is in scale with this.

Since Convoy is housing his own gun, he will never leave the house the garage.

That is beautiful, though the back section in cab mode without the trailer looks a little bulky.

I'm tempted to buy him, but after paying £150 for MP Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime and his having some little flaws that never should have been there in the first place if he hadn't been rushed out, then I'm cautious.
I'll keep an eye on the prices, see if they drop somewhat. I'll be getting him, no doubt about that, but I don't want to be paying a fortune for him until I know for certain if he's going to be worth the money.

If he were about £120, maybe £100, then I would be more tempted, and if he came with something more worthwhile than a Spike figure, then I would already be setting the pre-order.
Pity MP-10 wasn't Galvatron or Soundwave. Still I'll be getting him, but not on release.

To me, he looks AMAZING. The original MP Prime is big and blocky and a little clumsy looking, imho.

But here he is more dynamic, heroic, imposing, and just the all-round definitive Prime.

His truck mode looks awesome. I always hated how the windows would overhang the grill area in the original MP. Plus the original MP had too many jarring seams on the side of the truck.

This figure is full of win, as the original MP just fell behind compared to it's MP successors.

It's expensive - my only complaint. Here is hoping they release a Megatron that is in the same scale too.
