Thanks to eagle-eyed Seibertronian Bucky, we have some very interesting news to report. As can be gathered by the title of this story, there has been a listing created for the previously unannounced MP-49, which site sponsor BBTS has as Black Convoy! It's fairly safe to assume that this figure will be a "Nemesis Prime" recolor of MP-44 (aka Convoy/Optimus Prime 3.0) in his traditional black, teal, and red colors. The previous Black Convoy Masterpiece figure is shown below.

I'm sceptical about it, because it has a real number. The Prime redeco/Nemesis MP is typically MP-10B, for example. So this one would naturally be MP-44B, not its own number.

Unless they gave it its own number so that something else could have the number 50 slot

Maybe it'll be a different mold of some sort?

A RiD Scourge-inspired one perhaps, maybe with a different trailer?

I'd normally agree, but MP-38 kinda threw any and all rationalization for the ID number system out the window.

I'd be almost willing to bet money its just a repaint. The number system means absolute jack shit to Takara, so never assign any meaning to it.

On the plus side, for those of you (justifiably) turned off by the price, maybe this one will not come with a trailer and all the accessories, and thus be a $100 or so cheaper?

I would like a MP-44 Nemesis Prime that have NO trailer nor extra bits appart the axe and the gun. Then make it 50% cheaper and you get a sale.
However, maybe Takara will troll us by making him a full set that is DOUBLE the normal price because it will be a something-or-other exclusive.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't MP10B the same price as MP10 without the trailer and stuff?

Speculating about this figure having toy inspired details vs no-44’s took aesthetics

Nice, but it’s most likely gunna be hella expensive even with half the gear gone though...

Wouldn’t it be called Galvaconvoy and not Black Convoy? Or is there a Nemesis themed Lio Convoy I’m not aware of?

There was a shadow fully black Lio convoy in the show, he was an actual character too, all the maximals had an episode where dark dopplegangers of them were made and existed

Figured as much, anything Japanese Beast Wars is far beyond my knowledge apart from the Convoys. #-o

His name was "Copy Convoy", so this wouldn't be that.

No, it just got that way on the secondary market before being reissued. MP-10B was ~140, MP-10 with trailer and all that was ~200-220 back then. Later reissues of both were some % less expensive which definitely doesn't help the recollection of how much they were.

Attempting to figure out "rules" or guidelines for MP numbering schemes is the path to madness :michaelbay:

So the next one is a black MP-44? Cool for those who want it. I'll be keeping my money in my pocket.

If I'm not mistaken, Convoy/Optimus Prime variants, repaints, remolds, and reissues make up approximately 94.225% of the Masterpiece line... >:oP >:oP

Enough Primes already. :BOOM: :HEADHURTS:

I was sure we had given up on the numbers making sense. They don't. Since Takara clearly doesn't care about the numbers, we shouldn't either.

Also, in my usual self I will say this, anyone expecting more than a standard redeco will be dissapointed.

Posted by AllNewSuperRobot on November 27th, 2019 @ 2:28pm CST
Yet are the Nemesis redecos really so popular to warrant their own official number? How well are HasTak expecting this to sell alongside the other original figures of the line, given MP-44 was overpriced to begin with??
