Oh no! I pre-ordered MP-01B from Robot Kingdom and they state that they "will not include any ehobby give-away if any.". Now my question is: Does this comic constitute as an ehobby "extra" or "give-away" product or is it included in the MP-01B's packaging like a sticker sheet, accessories, and instructions? Maybe I'm overreacting but I'm really hoping I don't miss out on the manga.

Otherwise, it's great news! I mean, a 12 page, fully coloured comic/manga for the product? It's awesome!

Ok, managed get the translation, I guess is pretty close to what it is:


"The main story describes the emerge of Galvatron II has lead to the resurgence of the Decepticons. They are taking over many locations with energy sources. Laser Ultra Magnus recognises the problem, however Autobots is on the losing side. GaMede eventually came out with a plan by creating Convoy typed El Droids and send them to battlefields.

Attention Japan!

Please refrain from switching out coffee for crack cocain during your storyboard meetings.

"Clones" is not an answer for everything.

Yeah, I'm thinking the same thing. :) I don't know what I was thinking earlier this morning...had a freak out moment, hehe.(Note to self, do NOT drink more imported Japanese coffee.)

So,yeah, hmm, battle droid copies of Convoy? I'm not feeling that but there's 12 pages of comic to elaborate further and the fiction is just the icing on the cake for me. I'm just eager to have my first MP Convoy/Optimus and maybe I'll be able to score MP-01 in the future without paying too much more than original pricing.

Maybe this is all a hint that the next MP will be none other than... GALVATRON!!!

Yeah, probably not. But feel free to credit me with the revelation if it ever comes true. :lol:

All repaints aside, i still reckon the next masterpiece should be Galvatron, then they could repaint him as Galvatron 2 :grin:

I also think that it would be great if an upgrade kit was created to make this black convoy into nemesis prime, though im warming to the autobot symbol and the fact that he is just a black variant of optimus, i mean, look how beautiful the car robots black god magnus turned out, and that doesnt represent anything evil atall :P

So, this is picking off from the Hybrid Style manga, eh? Figures.

Note to everyone, Galvatron II is not the same guy as Megatron/Galvatron. In fact, this is the same Galvatron II from the Marvel Comics. He crossed over from that comic universe into the Japanese cartoon universe with a bunch of Warworlds at his disposal. Upon his arrival, Ultra Magnus was restored to life as Laser Ultra Magnus in order combat Galvatron II's threat. However, Laser Ultra Magnus could not defeat Galvatron II. But, by becoming upgraded into his Black Body once again, Optimus Prime took on Galvatron II and defeated him.

This has nothing to do with the comic, but does he still have those Grimlock and Megatron computer arm thingys or does it have a different picture?

Since this is MP-01, he'll more likely have the Bumblebee and Starscream ones he had originally.

MP-01B should be a slick player and have a different Fembot on each communicator display.

So, is this a limited release? If its on Takara's site does that mean it will see the same numbers produced as past Masterpieces?

If its a limited run then £99 doesnt seem so bad but for a simple repaint I am on the fence on this one, despite my love of the Masterpiece range.
Re: Comic Cover Page of MP-1B Masterpiece Convoy Black Version Revealed (983320)
Posted by Convotron on August 27th, 2009 @ 7:50am CDT
I don't know if it's a limited run so at £99, I would say that if you already have a version of MP-01, you really don't need MP-01B unless you must have a black MP Optimus Prime.

I pre-ordered MP-01B for $104 USD, granted the shippnig is about $35, but it's still a pretty darn good deal. I don't have an MP OP so 01B will be my first and unless I can really find an affordable MP-01, it'll probably be my only MP OP for a good long while.
