I somehow see that there is a trend to a lot of figures being held back this summer.

First the Legacy Megazord reissue and now this.
What's next?
Soul of Chogokin Goldymarg will be hit as well?
What about Sentinel's Dancouga?

The oldies are the best mein freund! :lol: Anyway, its a high probabilty that the other MPs might also experience some delays (like WJ and BB)

The demand for Convoy would even be more higher.

What is the general consensus on Takara's versus Hasbro's version of "MP-10"? I know that Takara's features a silver painted interior for the trailer and a screen accurate silver Roller, while Hasbro's has an unpainted (plain gray plastic) interior for the trailer, and a toy accurate blue Roller, plus painted eyes and painted cab roof lights on Optimus himself. However, which version has the more screen accurate colors for Optimus Prime? Hasbro's has a brighter and generally lighter blue and red than Takara's, but does that make it more or less accurate to Prime's G1 screen appearance? I've heard before that Takara's colors make the figure more G1 toy accurate, but I've seen debate on that as well.

Optics are dark blue molded. And I have to agree that the color approximates the original G1 toy's colors. Aside from the optics, I wish TT had also colored his chest headlights like that of Hasbro's

So, what is the general opinion on the definitive screen accurate MP-10, Takara's version or Hasbro's? Details such as the eyes and the cab roof lights don't matter so much for this question as the plastic colors on Prime himself.

Well, the notable differences are essentially this:
Takara - Dark blue plastic (cartoon accurate), dim blue eyes (not so much).
Hasbro - Light blue (while pleasing, not accurate), bright blue eyes (accurate).

They're both accurate. Depends on which frame you pull from the cartoon. The eyes are everything though.

Well, I've had that Takara MP10 on pre-order for a couple of months now... but it's still delayed.

On the plus side, BBTS got the Hasbro version in stock for $30 cheaper. It was tough choosing which one looked better... Even with the slight color shifts, they both look better then my YOTH version... I bit the bullet and ordered me the Hasbro one and canceled the pre-order!!!

Arrived today! Now to try to hold off a week or so till my birthday :DANCE:

Maybe order some reprolabels in the meantime :michaelbay:

Either one is great, but most people prefer the Hasbro version for his pretty bright eyes.

Not gonna lie; I hate - HATE - the bright gaudy blue of the Hasbro release. The dark blue of the Taraka release is so much classier and follows both the original G1 toy's appearance and - more often than not - the cartoon. I don't know what Hasbro was going for with that blindingly-bright, oversaturated blue they use, but can only assume they got a super deal on it at Crazy Eddie's Discount Clown Paints Emporium (exit 57 at the corner of Hwy 61 and Washington).

What in the world is Optimus doing to that poor tractor trailer in the last image? :P

Whatever he is doing, he is doing it to himself ;)

Kind of gives you a different meaning of playing with yourself.

Don't know what TT was going for at the time but yeah....why not just recreate the same blue optics color shade of MP-01? And those upper lights on his chest. Why did TT not color it? Aside from those two issues, based on my personal preference MP-10 is still the boss.

I also read somewhere that the Hasbro trailer isn't even painted aluminum silver..that's just the molded colors.

So oddly enough, BBTS still has stock of the 2nd production run Sideswipe; any reason to pass on that run and pre-order the 2015 September re-release instead?

Price difference? There might have been some mold improvements.

That Hasbro stock-image above is quite flat and saturated.

Takara should use this opportunity to give MP-10 painted eyes like the Hasbro version and their own Autobot cars.
