Via weibo user AlucardLee, a regular for this sort of news piece, we have what might the render for the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight MPM Masterpiece Optimus Prime, which we've mirrored below for your viewing convenience! A reminder: the Movie Masterpiece figures are new molds meant to replicate the 'best' incarnation of the live action movieverse, and there are three expected with the new film: Optimus, Bumblebee (seen already) and the rumoured Barricade. Check out the image below, and squint with us in the Energon Pub!

So, an even more movie accurate figure of Optimus Prime? I'd like to see Takara top that. (As an undeniable fact, the ROTF Leader Optimus Prime mold is the most screen accurate representation of Optimus.)

Who says they don't?

At least as far as Bumblebee goes, we know he does.

No reason to think Prime and Barricade won't transform.

If true, this is going to have to be earth-shatteringly good to make me even remotely consider replacing my custom-painted Jetwing Optimus Prime.

I'm sure they technically CAN top this, but I'm not sure how...

At the risk of rubbing salt in the wound, it's even more of a jip considering how degraded the molds are at this point (at least if the last release of ROTF Leader Prime is anything to go by).

That Bee looks really good, but I just can't get past the horror movie face. It just looks terrible, and has since 2007.

I might consider Optimus, but I much prefer the Evasion Mode look to his early movie incarnation.

Let's be honest, ROTF Leader Prime suffers from a terrible transformation

1. Having to literally pop off the chest, which isn't listed in the manual as a step, is the worst.
2. "I am Optimus Prime."
3. The swords won't allow the elbows to bend when retracted
4. "I am Optimus Prime"
5. Folding the arms and the sword and legs into the cab nose requires very specific steps, and are very easy to do incorrectly, forcing you to redo that section.
6. "I am Optimus Prime"
7. He doesn't transform into an ice cream truck
8. "I am Optimus Prime"

Bring on the new hotness

I disagree. All of these issues (save the ones regarding the swords) are due to crappy instructions. I can easily transform ROTF Prime under two minutes without a single "I am Optimus Prime" by simply completing the cab section first and securing the head into place. It's a beautiful transformation that's a marvel of engineering.

And that is why I'm so excited for the MPM. It's going to be even better, more complex and more accurate.

I guess the real question is going to be, how different will the MPM Prime be from the ROTF / DOTM Primes.

Since MPM prime is going to be based off of Prime's ROTF / DOTM look and not AOE or TLK, will this MP version be different or more accurate enough to warrant a new purchase.

I do have Takara's Movie The Best Leader Prime on pre-order, so I'm just wondering whether MPM will be worth the inevitably higher price tag and if it will be a wide release, or will it only be available through Toys R' US or something equally annoying in North America.

It's the best incarnation is not necessarily the first movie.

But broadly speaking his on screen look in the first movie and ROTF and DOTM is pretty much the same bar a few minor modifications.

DOTM I think is the best though.

Ahem.

Anyway, I can't wait to see the MPM Prime- the thought of the gorgeous ROTF Leader Prime mold (which I must buy a version of some day) with the "kid gloves" removed and a full-on MP treatment (proper hands, no voicebox in the chest etc) makes me drool. Imagine the engineering that will be going into that thing!

Yeah, I've long considered the RotF Leader mold to be more of a Masterpiece than many actual Masterpiece figures so this is gonna have to be something pretty damn special. Love the new MP Bumblebee over the previous Leader molds he got so maybe they can improve on Prime.
Re: Possible Transformers: The Last Knight MPM Optimus Prime Render (1863527)
Posted by Sigmus Prime on February 28th, 2017 @ 2:56pm CST
I'm totally down for this. While the ROTF mold is great, the mold has really been pushed to its limit by this point. Plus the MP line strives for greater accuracy and functionality, so MPM Prime is almost guaranteed to be better.

As somebody who's never owned any of the Leader Prime molds aside from AD-31 (which I kinda regret selling at this point), I highly anticipate this figure.

Don't forget that this figure might not just be better engineered and designed, but also larger than ROTF, because it'll be in Masterpiece scale like MPM-3 BB is (~1/32), which I think the ROTF Optimus mold might be a bit too short for.

It's the reverse, ROTF will be the bigger one. Hasbro and Takara both stated that this MPM line s supposed to mirror the scale of the MP line, so carbots are the same size and so are Faction Leaders. So since BB is made to be the same size as MP Sideswipe and Wheeljack, MPM Optimus should be the same size as MP Optimus.
So shorter than the ROTF mold

Which makes sense since MPM Optimus is only $20 more than MPM BB, cant be that much taller.

Its because he doesnt come with a trailer and a ton of accessories, unlike MP 10.

Bumblebee is also bare of accessories. Instead he has built in features (which I am all for).

So 80 and 100 makes sense.

No, you're right - just didn't occur to me. And yeah, Bee having incorporated gear is perfectly fine with me.

I am hoping Prime comes with all or most of the weapons he used in the first movie, which I don't think was that many to begin with.

Actually, you're right, at least for movie 1-3 Prime. I was just thinking that, because MP-10 Optimus' height in-scale is 25.7' (up to the ears), that MPM Optimus would be taller, because I was thinking he was 32' tall. However, that is his height in AoE; in Movie 1-DOTM, he's only 28'.

Yeah, I believe Prime only had his energon blades and ion cannon in TFTM.

So if the toy has the blades, then, I wonder if it will try to incorporate them into the build or instead have them as separate parts.

Are we sure about that? According to this random scale chart I found, Prime should be almost twice as tall as Bee (and taller than MP-10) if they want to keep them in scale. Do we have the numbers for MPM Bee yet?

They dont want to keep them in scale, they just want to replicate the other MP sizes. Thats what they said they were striving for.

And also, might i remind you Optimus is only 20$ more than BB. What can you possibly expect from that?

To be fair, I do recall someone saying that they were following the normal MP prices where the prices of carbots get horribly inflated but the bigger releases remain relatively unchanged.

Big red flag; this is off Weibo. Weibo isn't really the place where these come out of first. You might see a Japanese site show them, but rarely a Chinese one.

Although I cannot guarantee it, this probably will end up like the last render and become a third-party figure.

Just saying another leak happened for what we third was a Leader Optimus, but it turned out to be third party. I remember that leak looked suspiciously like this one. I'm still not convinced.

If it is happening, I'm overjoyed, but if not then I'm not surprised.

It's true, we don't always get sound info - but weibo is way more trustworthy than 4chan for this sort of thing, so we keep an eye on that too. ;)

Just saying another leak happened for what we third was a Leader Optimus, but it turned out to be third party. I remember that leak looked suspiciously like this one. I'm still not convinced.

If it is happening, I'm overjoyed, but if not then I'm not surprised.

**image snipped**

It's true, we don't always get sound info - but weibo is way more trustworthy than 4chan for this sort of thing, so we keep an eye on that too. ;)

Well if it turns out to be true I'll admit I was wrong and be quite happy honestly.

Although I cannot guarantee it, this probably will end up like the last render and become a third-party figure.

Totally agree. How would they even get their hands on this render? Just doesn't add up.

But isnt this the same guy who put up pics of the Movie Voyager Megatron prototype before it was revealed? Those toys are made in Vietnam too but it was a leak from China.

No, the guy who first posted the prototypes was "Vector Sigma" on Facebook. The one that posted these CG images is the same person that posted the the ones above for the unofficial AOE/TLK Optimus Prime, Alucard Lee. Even his post for this one is just speculating, not confirming. I just don't find the guy reliable.

Oh, ok. To be honest, I dont really think any of this matters. That image is super blurry and hard to make out and we already know we are getting an MP Optimus. So I don really know what else we can get from this whether real or not, until we see a better image.

What kinda blows though is how it seems Takara wont do a reveal until they release their MB 11. So Japanese fans (and importers) cant really determine which to get between the two.

If anyone wonders why I mention takara instead of Hasbro its because the interviews (with Takara) have really been making it seem like the current MPM line is all their design.
