    i don't know if this has been mentioned before, and i did a search for it and couldn't find anything, so if it has been mentioned, please just delete the thread

    with the news that the MP-04 is going to be the release of the MP-01 with trailer and some ppl having wanted to get just the OP figure, i thought this might come in handy. The recent previews magazine that just came out has a listing for the Transformers 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime Updated Action Figure - it pretty much describes the figure as it was originally released, but this time it includes a "brand-new collector's base that says 7 phrases from the original movie!" and is scheduled to ship in Sept 2006

    and the pic that they have with it has the long smoke-stacks

    like i said, this may have been mentioned before, so just delete it if it has

    Thanks for the heads up. :thumb 

    The smoke-stacks won't be getting any longer tho.


    Edit: Lets see: $80 or less 20th Prime with 7 phrases from movie.

    Versus $180 MP Convoy with...... a trailer.

    Not hard to figure out what most people are going to go for.

    As long as they don't increase the price, great.

    Its both good and bad Takara's new trailer most likely won't ever make it in Hasbroland - while it would be cool, the set would cost so much that either few retailers would carry it, or it would rot on shelves worse than Masterpiece Ultra Magnus did at Target in Australia.

    PREVIEWS..

    They put out a catalog every month with all of the comics, toys, etc. coming out two months later. That's where those Classics packaging mock-up pictures came from too.

    I think they should leave well enough alone. I hate gimmicks and extra loose parts. But that's just me.

    All I know is they're gonna have to leave this toy alone at some point. I know it must be expensive to produce, so it seems they'd be excited to focus on cheaper things, but eh, whatever.

    Try neither. I got mine 2 years ago, and don't need a gray plastic box, or a plastic base with a voice chip.

    This is fine for fans who were asleep at the wheel in 2004. I was not one of them.

    I suppose it would give me a reason to buy the US release....



    ......






    ...If it's decently priced.

    7 phrases from the original movie...

    "Megatron must be stopped... no matter the cost."
    "One shall stand. One Shall fall.."
    "Now all we need is a little energon, and a lot of luck"
    "Till all are one."
    "You, who are without mercy, now plead for it? I thought you were made of sterner stuff! "
    "Dinobots, destory Devastator!"

    and one more.. Hmmm
    "Arise, Rodimus Prime. " :D

    I'd rather have just the trailer, cos I already bought the figure the first time :|

    a sound board is not as cool as a trailer, to me at least

    I feel bad for the UK guys who finally just got 20th prime, and now the US is getting a better one, WTF is up with that.

    Why can't hasbro give us the trailer too? Make it available on the hasbrotoyshop or club.

    Especially if it was just the trailer. Maybe the club can arrange something like that, as it's a separately manufactured piece, they should be able to order 100 or so extra to be sold at a fairly low cost. I'd pay about $30 for a transforming trailer with roller, maybe $40 if it had lights and appropriate sounds. Of course, I got 20th Prime for about $45, and I'm not looking to spend too much more on it.

    -Tony!

    MP Prime did some rotting at retail here also.
    I wouldn't be surprised if these were the exact same ones Hasbro is trying to sell again in new packaging. :rolleyes2
