Thanks to Seibertronian -WonkoTheSane- we have been alerted to a new image on Takara Tomy's Twitter account, showing off the packaging for MP-49 Black Convoy, for the first time! This recolor of MP-44 is sans trailer, and differently from his usual red axe accessory, includes a translucent teal energon axe instead (though that isn't shown in the image below), as well as teak blast effect pieces.

Transformers News: New MP-49 Masterpiece Black Convoy Packaging Image

Do you have this incoming figure on your preorder list? He's due out in Japan this Saturday, so he should start showing up at U.S. importers the first few weeks of August.

Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, -Kanrabat-, has let us know that YouTube toy reviewer, PrimeVsPrime, has done a brand new review of the next Masterpiece to be released, MP-49 Black Convoy!

This is a redeco of the previously released MP-44 Optimus Prime figure, that was G1 Sunbow accurate. MP-49 doesn't come with the trailer the previous release had.

Check out the embedded review below:



Do you have this figure on preorder? Will you be adding him to your Nemesis Prime shrine? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

The knee issues have been fixed for this release.
I bet there will be a revised version of MP-44 sooner or later.

Regardless, I'm quite tempted by this Nemesis.
BUUUUUUT, the thing will still be 250/300$CAN shipped. So, nope. :(

wasn't aware of knee issues - didn't pony up for mp44. The number of extras with these things might be nice for some... however I would prefer to have the basic figure with a limited number of accessories for a reduced price. This guy is still too pricey, maybe they might release the standard prime again in the same manner as this. Or will save up 1k for the next mp prime.

He might be referring to a tabbing issue when you change it from truck to robot. On mine, one of the knees was extremely difficult to tab. So much so that I was afraid I'd break it. The funny thing is, the figure is much more durable than you'd think despite the fidgity transformation. It did eventually peg in, but I can see where they'd want to adjust it.

So guys, I a planning on getting mp-45 Bumblebee, but will I regret buying him? I like how he looks and dont really mind the backpack. I have also planned to get mp-21, but my friend had his arm joint snap off, so I am slightly worried about that. Is there any problems with mp-45 I should know before I get him?

I don't have MP-45, but I do have MP-21. I don't know how your buddy broke his arm, but it's not exactly delicate. I'd wager MP-45 is just as sturdy.

It was the transformation hinge he broke
But, like I said, I have heard bad reviews, and while I get the backpack may be bad, I don't really mind it. But, at the same time, I really wanna get mp-21

Heres the main Bumblebee thread, there's some in havd talk here but there was considerable nay saying about his design so I don't how many on here actually bought him...

Usually if there is a widespread QC problem in a toy, video reviews that are all over YouTube will point them out.

Congrats and be careful. That's one deep rabbit hole you're diving into.

A word of advise though. Avoid buying MPs from eBay. Especially those who come from China. It's Knock Off Central over there.

Well, I changed my mind on mp-45. After some talking, I have decided I will choose the right decision and go with the far superior mp-21.

Smart moove. MP-45 Bee is an overengineered and overpriced mess. MP-21 is way better all over, it's only "flaw" being not toon accurate.

On the subject of G1 2.0 releases, I was thinking the other day about Rodimus Prime. I'd like to think some day, we'll get a straight up, gimmick free Rodimus. No "inner Hot Rod", just the future Autobot Leader given his due. However, if they are making them more "show accurate", in style and not just aesthetic. Much as they did with Megatron MP-5 to MP-36. When it comes to Rodimus, that could be... problematic. :-?

I'd expect lots of panels origami resulting in a big but hollow vehicle.

I'm pretty sure it's possible.

Indeed. I'd foresee him being akin to Beast Wars Megatron's Bot Mode backpack, but on a far larger scale.

Yet, there's at least one Episode where he transforms like Optimus and there is an 'inner' Hotrod, I thought. :-?

Either way, I prefer the former.

Depends on which episode they decide to be accurate to. I think the detachable trailer would be the better approach, much simpler mechanically.

I think RP's trailer appeared more times than OP's.
