    Ok, I am very curious to see how many of you guys will pay the $250 price point? Considering how awesome MP 10 (Optimus Prime) looks and all that comes with him. There was a rumor on the "end all masterpiece thread" that the designers wanted to wait and see how well MP 10 sells at the higher $250 price and they said if it sells really good then they will consider releasing a MP Ultra Magnus with real combining G1 trailer. I know I for one want to buy MP 10 to help increase all our odds on hopefully a future MP G1 Ultra Magnus. Any others with the same intentions and hope?

    This thread is ironically missing a poll.

    I would only recommend MP-10 if you already had a version of MP-01 because for me he is truly a Masterpiece, where as MP-10 looks more like Leader Class material with a better paint job. Sort of my same feelings on the recent TRU MP Rodimus. Unless MP-10 has the weight and durability of diecast, piston details on all the joints and shocks for all the rubber tires, he just can't compete with the original Masterpiece Prime.
    However if he is ever $70 at Walmart in the future missing some paint apps. I'd gladly pick him up

    As a truck driver, I can honestly say MP-01's truck mode looks like @$$. MP-10, while still not perfect, looks much better.

    This guy looks awesome but for $250 and the full shelf of Primes I've got already I just can not justify this purchase to myself. At least not until after I know I can afford all of the TFC Devastator.

    I could easily afford it. However, that price is just obscene for a toy. So I won't be getting one.

    this is so true. For 250$, you can get a lot more plastic.

    "No way, too expensive! waiting for a price cut or sale."

    Since it's a Prime/Convoy, Most Takara MPs tend to hold their value fairly well anyway, and the odds of the western version having an equal deco, or even the trailer, are fairly slim....I doubt there'll be much movement on the price.

    I think I will wait for the inevitible US release, be it TRU exclusive or not. And then wait for further discount like 20% off TRU coupon. They will probably sell a non-trailer version (which is what I need) for like 70-80 bucks again.

    Price cut? When the did Convoy Prime with his trailer ever have a price cut? The prices on those are up there if you want one misb.

    I'll buy a hasbro version for $60.

    I won't buy the takara version for it's retail or even $100 off that price on a sale or whatever, so I chose not buying/not interested.
    MP-1 is fine for me, I'm not a scale fanatic or demanding that the alt mode be 100% accurate. It does the job for me.

    he looks great, but not THAT much better than the first version to warrant spending ANOTHER large amount of money on...

    also, i'm not too keen on the reduced size of this new Prime...Prime being a semi, and Hot Rod being a sports car, i like that MP-01 is bigger than Hot Rod

    so no, definitely not interested, even if the cost was reduced...he's too small IMO

    I'm going to go with waiting for a review... After the horror stories that came with rodimis convoy (thankfully mines had survived so far) I'll wait to hear about any issues, and maybe go with ever inevitable second release of it when I have the extra money for it.

    For size vs dollar, $250 seems to high. $150-$175 I am all over it.
