Taking a break from all of the Starscream updates, we return to first new Masterpiece from Takara Tomy - the Optimus Prime that redefined the line, MP-10 - and the exclusive crossover deco that tried merging robotic sentient beings with... whatever the actual heck EVA Units are. The Seibertron.com gallery-maker is proud to present Transformers X Evangelion Masterpiece MP-10 Convoy Mode "EVA"!

By clicking on any of the images below, you can access the full gallery, featuring side-by-side comparisons with the original deco of both Convoy/Optimus and Spike/the NERV technician, as the new figures take on the purple, green, orange and red colouring of Unit 01 from (Rebuild of) Neon Genesis Evangelion 3.0 - You Can (Not) Redo. The set also includes a redecoed trailer and Roller, featuring the NERV symbol alongside the Autobot one, and all the accessories of the original!

This version of Convoy has been out almost a year. No one seems to have noticed Red Bumblebee in the little comic...

Bumblebee isn't red in the image. It's just the lighting. Compared to the very red Optimus, Bee's colors are much brighter.

I don't have the figure, so I'll defer, but he lookS as red as Sideswipe...then again, maybe that's Tigertrack. :-D

The story identifies him as Sideswipe.

It's definitely regular yellow Bumblebee, colored properly to show the red fiery highlights from the scene. All you have to do is look at red Optimus Prime to see that Bumblebee is yellow under red lighting.

Even if it is red Bumblebee, what's the big deal? If some of you want to believe that's red Bumblebee, have at it!

It's not a big deal. Just looked red to me from the photo. Would have been a nice preview or grist for the rumor mill had it been A. correct and B. caught back when EVA mode Convoy came out.

I think red Bumblebee was a given at some point. What was a disappoint me to me was G2 Bumblebee was kind of a cop-out. He should have been gold chromed. The "gold" painted Bumblebee with a new head should have been Goldbug, complete with the alternate transformation of the backpack flipped around the other way so that it looks like Goldbug's backpack. It's a bummer they didn't go this route. The recent G2 resurgence, while fun, is still odd when other mainline opportunities are being passed up and G2 repaints aren't being done properly.

I can agree with the sentiment that they've missed some opportunities. G2 Bumblebee is definitely a moneygrab ('cause I want that jet pack :lol: ).

One thing I've wondered about is with this new Volkswagen issue, how will that affect us ever getting a Masterpiece Jazz. Porche, Audi, Volkswagen...same company...and they stand to lose billions. Probably makes it even more odd Masterpiece Jazz/Meister hasn't been made yet. VW already gave Takara a license. Same weird curiousity regarding the distinct lack of Sunstreaker from Lamborghini.

I would be terrified to ever attempt to transform an MP covered in chrome. I'd be scared to death about scratching or flaking or doing any kind of damage to the chrome in mid-transformation, and there's the potential threat of the chrome just flaking off itself over time. On a regular figure, I'd be bummed, yeah, but on an MP, I'd be devastated to see any kind of chrome flaking off of a crucial part of the body.

I am glad that MP Bumble G-2 Ver. was metallic instead of chrome. A chrome-covered MP is an accident waiting to happen.

It is the year 2000. The treacherous Destrons have been replaced, along with the Cybertrons, to make way for Takara's newest Transformers series: Car Robots. It changed pretty much everything. Gone (for the most part) were the beasts we had come to know and love, now the Cybertrons were vehicles and Convoy was a FAIYAA ENJIN, his cohorts were expensive luxury vehicles with ridiculous disproportionate bodies, and together they waged a war against Gigatron and his evil Destrongers. (Although one of them, that shark fellow, had the spirit of a poet and the intelligence of a stone.)

It was refreshing to see Transformers begin to return to their roots, vehicles, but the series was notorious for including a new character we hadn't seen done before.... Black Convoy. An evil clone of Convoy? Balderdash!

And so began the evil Convoy/Optimus clone repaints. (I know what you're thinking "Hey! There was a Lio Convoy colored to look like Galvatron, years before that, mister!" I know, but he wasn't Nemesis colored, so there. :P Okay, okay, there WAS a Nemesis colored Lio Convoy, but meh.)

Of course, Masterpiece couldn't be left out of that list of toylines due to receive an evil Optimus, oh no. Heck, we've seen some rather crazy stuff in Transformers, including a mish mash of Transformers and Evangelion! (You can see that gallery, here.) So, a Nemesis Prime/Black Convoy repaint in Masterpiece is not only not surprising, but expected!

And that brings us to the first of today's newest gallery: Masterpiece MP-1B Convoy Black Version! Oh and even though he wears the coat of evil, this dude's all good and saint like, so it's Optimus, going through an emo phase, apparently. He should've come with headphones so he could listen to The Cure.

Wait, what's that you say? "There's another gallery included with this, tell us about that!" You're right, my apologies. MP-4S Convoy Sleep Version is yet another repaint of yet another Convoy/Optimus mold (you don't say!) and also a Masterpiece! (Starting to see the trend, here?!)

For those of you who don't know, this Masterpiece is based on one of the worst scenes in Transformers history, the death of Optimus Prime. It wasn't bad enough that Hasbro and Sunbow teamed up to create Transformers: The Movie, which was really The Quest For More Money: Let's Kill Off All The Good Characters To Make Way For New Ones: The Movie. It wasn't enough to make kids all sad inside and out watching their beloved Optimus Prime die, oh no, they had to go full throttle and make his body decay and turn gray and black before our very eyes. (Our young, heartbroken eyes.) Here comes Takara Tomy to the rescue because no one had made a dead Optimus figure before!

And that brings us to our second gallery of the day: MP-4S Convoy Sleep Version

You can see both figures and their galleries by clicking on the respective images below. When you're done checking them out, come on back to the forums and share your thoughts with us!

Though Sleep Mode looks pretty depressing (as it should), the Eldedroid looks pretty cool. Daniel Witwicky never looked better. 8-)

Doesn't this guy count? :( http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Black_Lio_Convoy

I finally sold my Sleep mode Convoy. He's a nice looking guy, I think, but I really only bought it for the trailer (which I kept). Needed space for the new stuff. Elderoid looks good too, and has great fiction, but already having MP01 and MP02 Magnus, I can't be having more of this guy hanging around. Collecting a lot of figures at this size can become tricky fast.

Thanks to Sabr, hinomars19 and Seibertron (the man himself) appropriate edits have been made to reflect all of the pertinent information.

I never had the guts to put the papercraft MP-1B trailer together. I did that with MP-2's back in the day and that thing crumpled back to flatness within days.

Sadly, I think this was really the only Masterpiece Mold to be truly worthy of the tittle. Dont get me wrong, I love masterpiece and I have all of them uptodate, except for MP1 GOLD prime of course, but had they kept this amount of Diecast in everyfigure... It truly would have been more special, ala Soul of chogokin...

It used to be that an MP would be released everyother year, then one per year, then two, then now we have 5 MP releases or more per year, and quite honestly, some of the newer molds just dont feel special anymore...

Call me crazy, but I am looking forward to the XO KO MP king grimlock, the oversized grimlock, more than any other recent MP since ultra magnus and Wheeljack...

I have started sort of a refuge form MP 1 based molds in my house... just love this mold, its weight, and gimmicks... :D

Great job on the galleries, the pictures are truly worthy of this mold... thank you.

These galleries were more galleries started back in 2013, but were never finished. Felt good to get these completed finally. I also finished the galleries for Hasbro's Masterpiece Optimus Prime (MP-10) that I started back in 2012 as well as MP-10B Black Convoy which was started back in 2013. They're all finished finally which means I just have Gold Megatron, Marvel Comic Grimlock, and Black Rodimus to do at some point to get all of Masterpiece done at last.

Oh come on! The Cure is not an emo band! Sure, some songs are depressive, but they have a lot of happy and cheerful songs too!
Beautiful galleries, but I had to get that out of my chest.

We are taking a small break in the middle of all this NYCC madness to bring you a gallery of Hasbro Masterpiece Optimus Prime which was sold as a Toys R Us exclusive in 2012.. This is the second version of Optimus Prime in the Masterpiece line which is smaller than his MP-01 predecessor. It should be no surprise that this mold shared the top spot in our recent Top 10 Best Optimus Prime Toys list. Optimus Prime comes with his trailer, the Matrix of Leadership, a Roller unit (molded in blue instead of silver), an energy axe and a Spike figure. Prime features lighter blue bits and eyes compared to Takara's version which features a darker blue which makes this guy more cartoon accurate. Click on any of the images to see the full gallery.
