So where's MP-09? 08 was Bee, 10 is OP, 09 is? Or are we just gonna not think about that?

Also please, please don't be a straight up repack of an earlier version. It probably is though.

To be fair, I'm sure there's got to be a segment of folks that drove demand for this. Anyone here that still hasn't picked this up over its history of plentiful global releases from Hasbro and Takara, where this release is the one where you're thinking "at last, I will buy that"? Note that I'm not talking about repaints either. The Hasbro one had the TRU run and I think two Hasbro Asia runs, and Takara's fifth or sixth run of MP-10 came out early this year/late last year iirc.

There are always new collectors who weren't around for the prior releases.

So was the original 'not' in G1 colours? I'm confused.

Indeed! Fun fact: actually cut a short few minutes out of the last episode where she talked about it because the news hadn't gone Officially official public, officially.

In Canada, I only ever found (and bought) the YOTH version of MP10, without roller. So, if this new version is ever available retail/online that I can get my hands on, I'll sell the YOTH version.

It was a dumb statement, you're right to be confused :lol:

Both are indeed in "G1 colors", just slightly different. They're identical aside from the shade of blue used, the eyes, and the lights on top of the cab. Many people think the lighter blue is more accurate, but the dark blue is actually closer to what he looked like in the show.

Will this be the same size and basically the same model as the other TRU Hasbro Masterpiece OP? The one that came in the clear box. Even though we're saying it was part of their "generic" line, it was clearly marked as a Masterpiece.

Ack I bought the Hasbro Asia reissue for $160 not long ago. I wonder how much this will go for.

Exactly the same, barring any other arbitrary TRU markup.

Correct - thanks! Probably don't need another, but it's always tempting.

Depending on the price, I might pick this up just to have an extra.
