Courtesy of ACToys we have some in-hand images of Hasbro's upcoming version of MP-10 Optimus Prime along with comparison shots with the original Takara release. Images mirrored below. There is also a rumor circulating that the Hasbro version will see a "wide release", rather than being a store exclusive. Take that with the normal dose of salt until officially confirmed.

The Hasbro version appears to use lighter colored plastics in general, comes with a blue roller, Spike has some alternate paint on his sleeves and painted pupils, etc.

I think I like the Hasbro colors more. Much more cartoon accurate.

Boo to the lighter blue. But I'll get it because it's cheaper. I'll make it darker anyway.

Why does the US always get these corny shades of color? So sick of it. Here's a blue that looks cool, and here's one to catch the eye of 7 year old american boys.... :evil:

Just give me a trailer. I have the 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime who never got the same love as MP versions. Please no remakes of incomplete products.

50 Shades of Optimus.

Like always, I disagree with robofreak. Definitely prefer Takara's darker blue.

I'm just glad he won't have shaved stacks this time.

Buy on sight.

I like each one for different reasons. Light blue is nice for the cartoon accuracy. Dark blue hearkens not only to the show models over time, but also the dark blue of the G1 toy.

With this one being $150 cheaper than the original, I will have to go with this one though.

MP-04 is still my favorite

And that's why I didn't get the Takara release (like I normally do with my MP's).

Would definitely prefer Takara but I might have to face facts, I have a mortgage. :lol:

Though another reason I didn't get the initial Takara release was to hold out for a hopeful Ultra Magnus set. :BOWDOWN:

Im hoping the rumor of the wider release is true. That will drop the price overall and make more available. The SDCC shots from this site say "Transformers Exclusive",but not for where. But the shots here, non show the front of the box, which worries me.

If I remember correctly, when the Hasbro version was announced at Botcon it was said to be a Toys'R'Us exclusive. I certainly won't mind if that doesn't turn out to be the case, though. :D

Although I do prefer the colors on the Takara edition, I don't think the Hasbro versions colors are bad. And at their relative price points I'll definitely be picking up the Hasbro version as soon as I can find it. :BOT:

Hmm...the Hasbro version actually looks BETTER, overall.

Also noticed that the packaging mentions Hasbro Canada on it. Which means this was probably meant for stores in Canada. Probably Toys R Us since they don't really care so much about the French language laws and I don't see any French on the packaging. So where the heck is this figure?! I want my MP-10, damn it!

I just want to point out the box that say:

HASBRO CANADA LONGUEUIL QUÉBEC MADE IN VIETNAM FABRIQUÉ EN VIETNAM.

I bet my lest nut that the asswipes at Toys R Us will never have it in Québec stores because there's not enough french on the box.
:sad: :BANG_HEAD: :sad: :michaelbay: :HEADHURTS: :BOOM:

Seriously.

NOT more cartoon accurate. The Takara version was...is. I was excited about this until I saw the pics. Ugh :-( I really didn't want to buy the Takara version, but that's the way it's looking. Then again, I may not have to if I put it on my x-mas list. 8)

Can someone explain to me why Hasbro does this crap? I can understand cutting back on the silver or any shiny color app, but altering tones to intentionally make them look different? Sigh.. annoying.

Man, you don't know how much I want that statement to be real!
I'm thinking, maybe I should purchase Hasbro Prime (in addition to my current MP10). Once TTomy release an armor MP UMagnus, then the Hasbro Prime can serve as the inner core of the armor fighting along side with the TTomy white robot Magnus. Then my dream display will be completed :BOWDOWN: :BOWDOWN: :

Not too bad at all, but I'm still glad after seeing the comparisons that I picked up the Takara version.

I'll be skipping this one from Hasbro. I do like how they painted the lights on top yellow though. I may have to do the same on my MP-10 :).

I think perhaps, in this case, they've gone for comic colours.

I'm glad I got the Takara version.
