The Tokyo Toy show gave fans their first look at the newst version of a Masterpiece Optimus Prime, which we will call MP Optimus 3.0 until we get an official number or labelling. However, photos were not allowed so the only photo we got was grainy and not the ideal first look at a figure that will probably cost fans a pretty penny. Luckily, MP Optimus Prime 3.0 features in the latest Figure King magazine and while we do not have high quality scans yet, we do have a much better look at the toy than ever before.

Fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath found these iamges and sent them our way so taht we can in turn share them with you. It is the same image shown at Tokyo Toy show but clearer and bigger, letting us see the details. We also get a frther confirmation that this will be released in 2019. Let us know what you think!

I need more angles. Window pecs look a little too small for the torso as is...

However that head sculpt looks truly inspiring :x

Looks good, but I'm still not seeing anything that makes me want to upgrade from MP-10.

I prefer the proportions of MP-10 and even MP-01 if I'm honest.

You know, for a guy who doesn't go for toon accuracy, I do think he looks good.
I'm glad for those who are after the ultimate screen accurate version that this is coming, but am relieved that old 10 fits what I think is the ultimate Prime figure.

I wonder if to achieve his faux chest, he will have to be an intense panel former? Looking at truck mode would suggest, yes.

Won't buy it I don't think. Happy with 2.0. Saying that, the head sculpt is glorious!

Got that backpack going on there... :\

I wonder if his chest windows are formed by, somehow, flipping the truck windows around? That would allow for different robot/vehicle detail without actually using "fake parts" as such, and I'd be interested to see how that would work. It doesn't look like that's the case, but at the moment all bets are basically off with regard to this guy's actual transformation!

So happy i sold my loose MP-10 last year and hadn't replaced it yet.
I could use some fresh Optimus, and this one looks good.

10 years later we're gonna get an MP Prime 4.0 which is just a cutout of the cartoon model with a picture of the truck on the other side, and it costs £500.

It's a good looking Optimus Prime that definitely says "cartoon" version. However, something is off with him and I can't pinpoint exactly what it is. Something about the arm length (which is ironic because I always thought MP-10's arms were too long) or the really bad looking jigsaw of the truck mode. It looks extremely complicated for a figure that literally should be a more complex variant of fold legs down, pull arms out, flip up the head.

I've been saying this for the past few years as well ... I'm not a fan of the simplistic cartoon look with dull panels, but it seems that this is the new way with Masterpieces which is a bummer to me. I like cartoon styling (especially with heads), but I like the G1 toy or "real world" details as well.

Even the chest windows seems to be a fake part on this one, these are not the same as the truck.

It's as ridiculous as Cheetor and Dinobot MP.

I don't know, the windows look right to me. If they were bigger he'd transform into a bus?

MP-10 is still awesome, it's the toy that ignited the current incarnation of the line, and I'm keeping him. But I have a feeling that this new edition will be my new favourite.

Yeah, I get "Evasion Mode" vibe from this.



I hope everything folds neatly. No crookedness and misalignments.

After looking at a variety of images of Optimus Prime from the G1 cartoon, I wonder why they decided to do the angled grill on his abdomen. While I found a few images from the cartoon where it looked like that, it seems the vast majority (including the cartoon model) have the flat grill.


















Even the extremely awesome Studio Ox model had the flat grill.

I will be waiting for time for someone rotate bicep and break part of smokestack from hanging down to low in bot mode like how they completely hide his back wheels in bot mode of figure but figure itself is not enough for me but second time around first figure release of figure is better looking of figure

Maybe the grill can be moved so it can be both flat and angled depending on preference? The trailer looks like it's got something going on, but is it the same as the trailer released before?

Yeah, probably not going to be able to pretend I'm not buying this.

Optimus has been working on his "proportionizing," I see. :lol:

This looks good, but then again, I have had no problem with how MP-10 looks at all as a "Masterpiece" version of Optimus Prime. I'm sure, though, that I'll be unable to resist buying this once we get some pictures of colored samples. If they paint the eyes light blue and forego the dark blue plastic "light piping" from the MP-10 Takara version, I'll be sold, most likely.

Are we really going to be that picky about something?
