Online toy shop Kapow Toys has posted the first images of the upcoming Transformers Masterpiece MP-10 Optimus Prime.

This version of Optimus Prime features:

Trailer featuring roller and repair bay
Transforming gun that stores in back compartment
In scale Spike Witwicky figure
Energon axe
Look closer to animation model
Opening chest revealing Matrix of Leadership
Flush and more accurate alt mode

Check out the images below:

Alas, I just wasn't fast enough to keep up with a veteran like Mach.

To be honest, I see nothing here worth $275.00


I believe they are talking about the gun here. Kinda like the gun with WFC Prime.

Thats what she said. ;)

Quick thought - this could actually get a Hasbro release. I don't see anything there thats gonna seriously break any toy safety laws. :)

I was hoping for a slightly better proportioned alt-mode, but still very nice. I love the covered wheels on the legs.

Wow, wish I could afford it. With all the movie Primes and Megatrons that I'll be grabbing, not to mention the eventual release of Transformers: Prime figures, I don't think I'll have any room in the budget for this one. Pretty upset about it actually.

Looks pretty damn good.

I should cross-reference anyone who comes into this thread with praise against anyone who slammed the figure without seeing it. :P

Very nice looking figure. Probably the best looking Prime we have seen since MP01. Love both alt mode and bot mode aesthetics, buuuut I'm getting really bored of the same prime over and over again (yes, I'm a G1'er), and definitely NOT for that price. See how the US will price this figure if we get it over here.

Ah. I hope that's all it is. Still, not impressed enough to spend that kind of dough.

Neat? Sure.
Looks good? Sure.
$250? No.

Actually not bad. I had my doubts about another MP Convoy, but this is impressive. I like the head, and the tiny Spike figure. LOVE the fact that the Ion Blaster is foldable and can be stored in the back. Probably a reference to TF:TM when Prime magically pulls it out of his back. If they decide to make another MP in this scale w/PROPER legs, I might be game for that too. Here's hoping the next MP is actually Soundwave though. I've waited long enough.

Here's the next 9 Masterpiece releases:

MP-11 is Optimus (convoy) with Sparkplug
MP-12 is Optimus (convoy) with Daniel
MP-13 is Optimus (convoy) with Chip
MP-14 is Optimus (convoy) with Carley
MP-15 is Optimus (convoy) with Spike in his exosuit, with a 100 extra price tag
MP-16 is Ultra Magnus with non-transforming trailer and Spike WITH HARD HAT and 50 dollar extra price tag
MP-17 is Ultra Magnus with non-transforming trailer and Sparkplug WITH HARD HAT and 50 dollar extra price tag
MP-18 is Optimus (convoy) with Chip, and different color wheels in his wheelchair. Add 50 bucks.
MP-19 is Optimus (convoy) without human figures, to lower the price $5.

THANKS TAKARA!

As much as I DO like this, I don't know if it's better than MP-04 in a significant enough sense to purchase it.

That's a shame really.

Something about the bot mode is not working... I just don't know what...

Spike and the truck mode look pretty awesome though....

I'm liking what I see; I'll have to see whether I like it $250 or not when it hits.

I also really hope we get a Megatron in this size out of SOMEBODY, preferably Takara.

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