Fellow Seibertronians! Yours truly brings to your attention something burning today! In a rather unexpected twist of events, BigBadToyStore has posted a new listing revealing the existence of a new upcoming Transformers Masterpiece figure, MP-38+ Burning Convoy!

A redeco of the Masterpiece MP-32 Optimus Primal, it will homage the Burning Convoy redeco of the original Optimus Primal figure that was released as a limited-edition figure to promote the Beast Wars Special movie. The deco has varried a bit in the past but the cartoon accurate deco, since this is based on a cartoon appearance, has an all red chest with only the forearms being gold. You can see an image below of the Robot Masters version, which has more gold highlights, and how he looked like in the cartoon. We do not know if that means he will be clear or painted red. Both Hasbro and Takara will release this toy, as inferred from the BBTS listing.

Why? Simple: MP-32 was BW cartoon accurate, MP-38 was toy accurate under the caveat that's the form he appeared in in the BWII movie. Both regular bases for a "+" release were covered, but only the Burning deco was left to do. So there :lol:

An MP Flash Lio Convoy shouldn't be too far behind.

I'm beginning to think it was destiny that i was still in college for both of the other Primal molds and thus could not get them.

I'm hoping this rocks, cause I really like the idea and I might finally get this mold

Oh, I know it's based on a real design, but the crappy gold paint on the transparent red plastic make it look a lot like one of the KO's from the prime days.

Good thing that's not the MP.

Thanks to an unexpected source in the form of Previews World, we now have some new stock photos for the recently announced MP-38+ Burning Convoy!

Burning Convoy is a redeco of the MP-32 mold in a garish translucent red in homage to the original Burning Convoy toy, based on the color Optimus Primal AKA Beast Convoy took when he and Lio Convoy united to defeat Majin Zarak in the Beast Wars II Movie. This redeco is the MP-32 repaint since it does not come with the Mutant Mask that MP-38 did.

This figure is set to be available in March of 2020 for the reasonable price of $111.99. Check out the product description and photos below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

From Hasbro Toy Group. Takara pays homage to the Beast series with MP-38 Masterpiece Burning Convoy!

Transforms from robot to gorillla and includes 2 cyber blades, and 4 alternate face plates for Beast and Robot Mode. Concealed cannons can be revealed when in bot mode in his arms and shoulders.

Looks like they scooped a bunch of MP32 prototypes out of a storage bin and said, “Hey, could we sell these?”

Because it's the super powerful form he took in climax of the Japanese theatrical movie.

Asking why they would make this version is like asking why any toys of Galvatron or Rodimus Prime get made. They're the movie-original powered-up forms of Megatron and Hot Rod just as this is the movie-original powered-up form of Optimus Primal.

Same here. Looks super bland. If it was a cheaper toy, sure (like Mirage or Cyclonus in a multipack) but here it's a pricey exclusive. I don't mind that it exists but I have other things to spend my money on.

That does not explain why anybody would want a, at least, $120 transparent plastic nightmare.

Same reason anyone would want figures of Super Saiyans: Because Burning Convoy (in the short time he appeared) was epic.
