It was eight years ago when Takara Tomy ushered in a line that would change many things, a line that would be keeping EMS Japan Post busy for weeks, and a line in which its toys would fit the name, Masterpiece. It started off with the face of the Transformers franchise, Optimus Prime, and for many years it was the standard for Transformers collecting - a hint at the technology to come. Now once again our favorite leader of the Autobots has been remade, revolutionized, and reborn as the tenth Masterpiece toy.

While the figure, it's price and the selection of character has met its plethora of critics, there is no doubt that this toy will be 'that figure', and the standard for many years to come.

MP-10 Optimus Prime, and his accompanying human companion, Spike Witwicky, bring 489 photos to the toy galleries of Seibertron.com. Enjoy.

I would say it is about the same, maybe a tad more complex.

I have Set an a lot of respect for them in the attempt of this:
not only is this directly for the nitpicky fans who wanted a Optimus thats in proper scale with their other MPs.
but also that they redesigned and restyled every part from the leg style to the ab-grill.

But looking this over I like every bit of the old mp better, except for the scale and alt mode of course,
the chest, ab-grill, legs, crotch, arms, pretty much everything.
To me i dont think it would be easy to beat MP-01

I thought exactly the opposite. If you look at the pics, his build is more fluid, no strange out of place aspects like the arm joints in alt mode...more streamlined, tighter joints...all around a better figure.

When you look at MP10 next to rodimus it makes you wonder What was hasbro thinking killing optimus for that guy. I always liked him better as hotrod anyways.

Ryan seems to have gotten the error version, just like mine. If you take a look at his pseudo rear lights/toes, both are facing left. It should be mirror images of each other.

Yeah, it's about the same level, just different. Maybe a little more fiddly to get some tabs into the hips in cab mode but not substantially more difficult that MP-01.

Except in terms of poseability. MP-01's ratchet points are too far apart and he's not very stable. The new version is miles ahead in subtlety of posing - you can change little nuances. He's really stable, unless you got the one with floppy ankles.

O_o... I had no idea he was that much of a downsize from the original. That's a shocker...

I tried looking for this in the gallery, but didn't see what you're talking about. Would you mind referring a photo in the gallery where this is apparent?

He looks amazing.

Is he worth getting? The price is shocking to say the least, but I am considering putting money back for him if he's worth the price.
Are there any flaws that should be noted like parts popping off too easily or weak plastic or generally anything that might cause damage to the figure?

Would very much like to hear all the good and bad points from those who have this Masterpiece since I'm very cautious about spending so much after the way MP Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime turned out if this Masterpiece is as flawed as that one was.

That is also the main reason why I purchased MP10. Both version are awesome. I think MP10 is starting to grow on me. Originally, I didn't like that kanky feet. Now it doesn't bother me anymore.

Wow, interesting last picture there Reminator. I didn't realize iGear's version was so much smaller than MP-10.
