    It is a new mold, and has been the topic of much discussion over the last couple of weeks or so.

    Mainly because it appears to be less toy for more money, and also because some people convinced themselves it was something other than
    what Takara solicited it as.

    In fairness to you, there's so much news these days, if you're not here like twice a day, you may miss something.

    Wait, why are those pictures watermarked with "Hasbro"? Does this confirm a US release now or were the original pics from japan marked "Hasbro" too?

    Yes, the original photos had the "HASBRO" watermark:

    Masterpiece Convoy MP-10 First Images - Transformers News - TFW2005

    Though we've not had any kind of news from Hasbro about the new mold, I wouldn't doubt that Hasbro will want to find some way to release it as well. Also, TRANSFORMERS and all of its properties are owned by Hasbro, and is business partners with TakaraTOMY, which shares the license.

    Probably Hasbro Hong Kong.

    They're agents for Takara in China.

    ^This! Infact the news is so old that the fandom pretty much exploded due to MP10's sheer infamous nerd-rage status. you either will like it or continue to bitch about it forever. And where the heck have you been, seriously?!
