    Courtesy of Toynova.com... MP-01 & MP-05 - Transformers Masterpiece Re-released

    There's a rumor circulating around right now about a possible re-release of MP-05 Megatron...

    [​IMG]

    Questions are...

    Will it be the last time MP-05 Megatron will be released as well?

    What differences will it have from the first release?

    At this time, no additional information is provided in regards to this unexpected re-release so stay tuned...

    my guess is it'll have a few different accessories. perhaps a remolded head.

    maybe slightly differtent colors,like the inner blue legs & blue parts the microchange version had. maybe the toy will be in the cowboy dark black & brown colors.

    This will be the third time this same figure has been released, with this being it's second re-release. I imagine everything will be the same as the first time around.

    I bet you're wrong, because they re-release the Masterpiece figures all the time, off the top of my head they've re-released MP-1, MP-4, MP-5, and MP-6 all at least once. Each time they were exactly the same as the original version except for the re-release of MP-6 Skywarp who was misassembled for his second release.

    How about no rusting? That might be a nice extra.

    So if I order from BBTS, there orange caps are glued in???? :redface2:  Did anyone have luck successfully removing them? I skipped mp05 the first time around and might consider the re-release. I should have picked him up when robotkingdom had them for 90:banghead:  but all the flak it was getting at the time made me pass

    Don't forget MP-2! They re-released him as well, with upside down headlamps.

    Fix the tarnish/rust problems, strengthen the joints, use stronger plastic, and fix the weight issues and I might buy this, just to replace mine. Otherwise, I'll pass. Thanks.

    yeah, i would love to own megatron but those issues are to much to overlook. i sold mine after having it for a week.

    oh and the plug is very easy to remove. the barrel will have some leftover residue but its a nonissue since its inside the shaft. not noticeable at all

    personally I'd like Takara to decrease the size of this MP Megatron toy mold to 8 to 9 inches tall in robot mode. to me that would be the best improvement on this mold. as it would better fit in with other AEC/live action/animated faction leaders on display shelves.

    That's about how much I got for my Megatron, except he came with the add-on kit. Gonna pass on this.
