Anticipation is building as to just who and what the recently announced Masterpiece MP-10 is.

Anonymous sources (and a little bit of reasoned guess work) reveal this upcoming MP figure to be none other than Optimus Prime with an improved trailer (ala MP-04). Details as we know to be rumored:

  • All new mold
  • Robot-mode size close to the i-Gear Faith Leader KO
  • Improved overall robot-mode and design
  • Better looking, more cartoon accurate head
  • Die-cast parts
  • Trailer
  • Truck-mode more convincing and realistic than MP 01
  • Truck-mode windscreen and grill better aligned than on previous G1 Optimus Prime toys
  • Accessories have not been decided upon yet

This is of course as of yet not 100% confirmed, our source may be mistaken as to some of the key details, but then again the same source has delivered reliable information about DOTM Leader Class Ironhide, Sentinel Prime, etc...

So yea, we're pretty sure this is true, but take it with a grain of salt - and watch that blood pressure...

Why on earth do they think we need a new version of Prime but smaller? Yeah, it'll be good to have it more on the scale of seekers and Grimlock but come on - why not a new character? :BANG_HEAD:

Because this is from the same source as: MP Rodimus Leader Class Ironhide, Bumblebee, Sentinel Prime and the DOTM Movie and G1 two packs, just to name a few.

Just because they were right once or twice before doesn't mean they're right all the time. All I'm saying is that people should not believe everything they read. I'm not saying that's not what it will be, but it hasn't been confirmed yet.

If what Counterpunch is saying is accurate (and it probably is) then MP-10 will be a new sculpt of Optimus Prime with a trailer.


I never said it was "gospel." I made a point of saying they may be misinformed.

However, I can't think of any time the mods have revealed anything they didn't think was true.

Remember the time they reported that fake BotCon reveal last year?

I'm not going to bet it's not true, cause no one really knows yet. Also I'm piss poor, but that's beside the point.....

You're right.

We've been wrong before.

We've been misinformed on occasion.

We've corrected it when we were.

Can we move on now? I've admitted that the news has been wrong on occasion and everyone has paid attention to you pointing that out. Well done on keeping us honest.

The information from this source hasn't been bad yet. So, we can go on being negative and casting doubt on people that do free work for you, or...whatever.

Gee, when you say it like that, I almost sound like an asshole.

This is just another Michael Bay plot to misinform the masses, what they are really creating is a lifesize G1 Bumblebee, hence the $250 pricetag. Or an in scale Broadside... hah, I could only hope right?

Anyway. I'm just glad the figure isn't something I desperately want-I already have the 20th Ann. Prime. I can put that $250 towards some classics/movie figures. However, if it's as cool as it seems, it's going to be a hard choice.

So does this mean a new Megatron is forthcoming then, too? Kinda makes him the odd man out if he's the only 12 inch figure left in your MP display.

Maybe, I hope so. It does kina look like they are rebooting the whole line.

I would just say that buying iGear seekers may not be the most prudent thing to do in this topsy-turvy world of ours.

If these rumors are indeed true, it should be very interesting to see how this mold turns out to be. I'm leaning on placing a preorder just to be safe. Hopefully it comes with a wide variety of accessories but more importantly, top-notch QC.

A new Megatron would definitely be welcomed ;)
