Not a lazy re-issue but actually with new features! Takara can suck at times with their ambitious Tracks/Roadrage mold but this one looks like a home run!

What's new in this release that wasn't already in previous Asia Premium Series releases?

I was asking what was new for this release that wasn't in the APS versions. You suggested the fingers, which I answered as those having already been in the most recent APS version.

Takara has not done anything new with this toy. Every feature comes from a previous release of the figure. However the combination of features is new. It's the first time he comes with the knuckle AND a faceplate at the same time for instance. But Takara hasnt made any new feature that wasnt there before.

And the source I read this issue from (okay Burn don't go ballistic with this)

http://tformers.com/mb-11-10th-annivers ... /news.html

made a big fuss for articulated fingers. Maybe not all people are aware of this feature. Maybe you could confirm if the original mold of this figure never had "articulated fingers".

Then this re-issue is just is one of the many GREAT examples of how Takara goes an extra mile with their versions (which is a 5/5 to me) like UW Devs (elbows, weapons, two faces) UW Bruticus with Blastoff etc etc

The articulated fingers are not new, as stated. But the feature was planned for the original RotF release, making it to the stock photo stage. However, the economic crisis of 2008 meant that the parts count had to be lowered a bit, and designs simplified. Starscream, Sideways, Rampage and Optimus Prime were the most noticeably affected, in the latter case the hands became solid pieces:

Image

This was kept for all iterations of the mold until the APS-01U Optimus Prime Ultimate Edition. That release has both the Jetwing and Striker accessories, and even adds 2-2-1 articulated fingers, plus a knuckle buster and battle hooks. It's that release the 10th Anniversary release is based on.

They gave us nothing new. This feature is already available in the APS-01U release, which came out last year, as Jelze just stated. You can see those same hands in the pic below showing that release (of last year):

Image

So Tformers is incorrect, I dont know why they made a big deal out of this.

The only thing Takara did with this, is release that same toy (with the faceplate versin of the ROTF headsculpt) at a lower price point due to not giving as many accessories.

So now we can own the best version of OP for 70-100$ instead of over 200$. That's awesome of takara even though there is are no new features in this release.

So we get a cheaper face-plated version, no accessories hence cheaper version. As for the ethics of correcting another site's reports..........I'm staying away from that with a 10 foot pole.

10th Anniversary Optimus Prime comes with:

- Ion Blaster from the Buster Optimus Prime version.
- Battle Blades from the Striker Optimus release.
- Battle Hooks from the Ultimate Edition.
- Knuckle from the Ultimate Edition.

Really, the only things removed are the Jetwing backpack and guns, and Striker's Stealth Force Mode attachments.

It has been a few months that we are aware of Takara's plans for the 10th anniversary of the first live action Transformers film. What we didn't know was what the MB stood for in the item numbering, like MB-11 (which is a rerelease of Leader Prime). People thought it was short for Michael Bay. But no, it was revealed today that the line is called Movie the Best, meaning that this is Takara's choice for the best molds to represent the toys in a certain scale. Leader Optimus is an outlier (being number 11) since he is simply a chance to release the recent APS-01U Optimus Prime toy in Japan.

We mirrored the images below so that you can get a reminder of what they look like. These are coming out within two months, will you be getting any?

Heh, "Transformers: Movie The Best" is so delightfully Engrishy a name. It reminds me of some Kamen Rider names.

Kamen Rider: The First, Kamen Rider: The Next and Kamen Rider TheBee from Kabuto I'm guessing? ;)

I still like my "Movie Birthday" a lot better.

I wonder how many stores will say "Zabest" like they did with TheBee.

Even in the videogame industry, games that are best sellers get the same "the best" labels. "Playstation the Best. Or like a Yoda speak, technically the best Playstation omitting "games"
