    The only black ones there are are only customs that people have made. I dun think Takara made one. They only made an all gold chrome vesion, I believe.

    Takara will make one eventually. It's Convoy and black paint, no way they'll let those go uncombined for long. I'm guessing MP-05.

    They haven't because the "black Prime" repaints are so last week.

    The big kick now is the "white Magnus" repaint.

    These are the only official colors offered in the masterpiece prime mold

    If you want to get technical.. hasbros 20th primes make 4 (battle damage) & 5(no chrome)

    One of these days, I'm gonna get a MP Prime and have him gold plated. Probably be cheaper than buying that lucky draw piece.

    What's so great about it? It'd be another black repaint of Optimus Prime.

    Why is it that whenever Hasbro release a repaint of an existing toy as a different character, people complain about them being "cheap" for releasing repaints instead of "more new toys", but when Takara release another of their endless "black repaint of a Convoy toy" brigade, people praise them as if they were cast from the living flesh of Peter Cullen himself?

    Actually, people don't complain when it's a different character. They accept that because of the seekers in G1. It's when they repaint a toy and it's the SAME character that people get upset. Power-ups should be new molds.

    I want a black one too. My black repaints don't have an obvious leader right now, it's a toss-up between Jafcon and Nucleon Quest Primes.

    Extremely. I'm pretty sure it was a Lucky Draw, so that means very limited. Less than 50 out there in all likelihood, possibly less.
    Well you're in luck, since it's being re-released. I think it's even in stock at some places already. And 20th Prime will be out at US retail in a few months. Plus they're also the MP-04 version that throws a trailer into the mix.

    Because in Fanboy eyes, Takara = God, Hasbro = Poop.

    Black repaints are a mainstay of japanese robot toys, not just Transformers.
