    Will be nice to see better 'official' pics to avoid a distorted view, but I'm not any more (or less) impressed than I was for MP-10, or even MP-1.There's a part of me that hopes I don't like this new version much, as it will undoubtedly be pricey, and I really don't need yet another MP Optimus

    Looks okay to me, I guess. Can’t really see the face sculpt yet.
    I already like it more than anything from the movie line.

    so it’s got that going for it... which is nice.

    I dunno but I have this sneaky feeling G1 fans are going to be pleasantly surprised by a new mold very soon, I just feel it!

    The text at the bottom of the slide "来年発売予定" means "scheduled to be released next year". So 2019!

    It looks okay to me. At the very least it'll be a nice match for MP-36.

    Confirmation from someone who attended the panel that Convoy v3 will be using newly recorded voice clips from original Japanese G1 voice actor Tessho Genda.

    For non-Japanese collectors, this feature is just added cost which adds little value to the figure.

    Anything but this "yeeeah, kinda meh about it" Optimus. :confused:  Like most am reserving final judgement until better pics come along, but at this stage I'm struggling to see how (what appears to be) a weaker sculpt than we already have justifies putting MP-10 out to pasture.

    At least in the body and the elements we can see.

    That cab front, for example, is the new "Megatron's crotch" of seam lines. :D

    Another requisite comparison.

    Really looking forward to clear images of the face sculpt.

    Dangit. Would've hoped for a Peter Cullen voicechip, but it was to be expected considering Megatron...

    Gotta be honest, I'm not feeling this. Been trying to decide between waiting for MP Optimus V3 or tracking down an MP-10 for a while, but I guess it's gonna be MP-10 that accompanies my Masterpiece Beast Wars collection after all.

    After looking at how skewed the images are, and looking at TT logos and other media to try and get a feel for what proportions should actually be, I tried to correct the clearest image we have so far both in terms of camera perspective, and stretching. Best I could do. Definitely makes him look more proportional to Megatron and his legs less skinny, at least.

    With that, going to bed lol. Enjoy the hype and/or disappointment, as befits each person's persuasion. :D

    It seems fine.

    Hope they tighten up that shin gap by release.

    I guess if Hasbro releases their version, it would come with Cullen's voice.
