The big reveal of Tokyo Toy Show was the new Masterpiece Optimus Prime. So, with Wonderfest Summer happening right now, we get to actually see this grey model on display. It is next to previously released Masterpiece toys like Sunstreaker and Ratchet and also next to newly revealed Hound, for you to better assess the scale. His tag still does not give us his MP number but it does have "(ver. 3)" as part of it's title, for identification purposes. We see both his robot mode and his cab and trailer mode. We also get a good shot at his back which surprisingly seems quite clean and a good take on his backpack in the G1 cartoon. We also see him with his shoulders kept more inside for a more narrow stance. The pictures come from Weibo and Twitter, and Dengeki Hobby.

Let us know what you think of this new Optimus Prime Ver 3! And keep an eye out on our site as we will be unloading more news from the show!

Proofreading: "assess", not "asses".

Still, very nice to see its scale. Also, MP Hound looks great!

Oops! Fixed that little (Freudian, Will? ;) ) slip.

I wasn’t really impressed by the early pictures of this new Optimus, but he looks great in these pictures!

As much as they milked the MP-10 mold for as many repaints as they could get from it, I wonder how many we will get from this new version over the next 10 years or so?

very nice, but still if they go through the trouble of going cartoon accurate with robot mode this one especially they should make the truck mode cartoon accurate as well, who knows there might be less panel forming with it :-?

As long as we get G2 (with soundbox and stupidly-large cannon) like I had as a kid, I'll be happy! :-D

He actually does look quite good here, though I'm still not bothered about cartoon accuracy. The trailer intrigues me though, does it only open to reveal the Base as before or is there more going on there

Truck mode looks amazing! As does the rest of him!

I'm glad they went with the more angular TOEI Animation style.

Eh, he looks better here than those initial reveals, but eh, still not doing it for me. The faceplate for some reason seems to be a bit too tall too

MP-10 is a better figure overall, but with the current direction of the MP line, this is a much, much better fit.

Is that the alt-mode grill folded inside his back?

Yeah looks like it. The top of the backpack with the central screw is the front bumper and hinged on to the sides are the outer corners of the front bumper.

Also sandwiched in the backpack it looks like the panels from the top of the truck mode.

Holiday with girlfriend? Nope.
Redecorate the bedroom? Nope.
Christmas gifts for family? Nope.

This is what that part-time job is for. Hold everything else - I'm sleeping in a cardboard box until I've saved up enough.

Aw crap, that's a soundbox if I ever saw one, you can see the speaker holes on the bottom and an on/off switch on the side. I'm not surprised, but I was really hoping this one would be lights only. This will most definitely be the new "most expensive MP ever". Maybe I'll pass and hold out for a Hasbro release with Peter Cullen's voice...
