    What do you think the odds are that we might see a MP-10B reissue at some point? I missed out on the original, but would really like to have one in my collection. Not worth $200, IMO. I'm not interesting in MPP-10B, as I'd like something that fits in with my MP collection. Do you think this is worth Takara's time and your money?

    I dunno, I think this color scheme never really worked on anyone but RiD Scourge. I rather the did an MP10G2 set, with a black trailer with orange striping that says "Optimus Prime." And a pair of missile launchers.

    What I'd really rather Takara do is a masterpiece Ginrai or Masterpiece Laser Optimus Prime.

    I've been kicking myself not getting this one when he first hit. But if he get's reissued, I would be a buyer around $100 or so but if he's an Asian Market exclusive with an import price of around $200 (like the current MP seekers), I'd have to pass.

    Was the first run $100 bucks? BBTS had it listed for $184.

    Worth the price in my eyes, a Black Prime is a must have for every collector :)

    I think that was a mark up BBTS had for when they were able to secure some more figures from another secondary source. I think the first run release ran about $100-120US.

    Has TT even reissued the regular MP-10? I know there are Hasbro Asia reissues, but TT?

    I don't think the odds of a reissue of MP-10b is very likely. At least not by TT.

    And honestly, I have him and altough he's good looking with his glossy finish, I will say that I find him to be one of the most uninspiring black Optimus figures. Rid Scourge went from a black truck to a grey robot, Armada Bendy Prime was some weird blue colour instead of black, Energon had the Grand scourge deco (and recent Combiner Wars used the same), the classics had blue to break up all the black, and the RiD/Prime version had some gold...while the MP-10b replaces all the red and all the blue with black. Rather uninspring compared to the others. Really wish they had done it a bit differently and I've often looked at him thinking to do some parts swapping with the Yoth version turning the YotH into a sort of G2 (with black instead of blue), but for the black deco I'd want to use some red (hands, head).

    Never understood the appeal of this character. I would not buy.

    I keep remembering there was a short second run of MP-10B, but I'm not certain. Can anybody confirm this?

    And yes, it is a "Must have!" for collectors. The glossy black color scheme looks incredibly nice for this mold.

    Whenever this figure gets brought up, I have to crank out these pics (Trailer is a custom). mps568a1a.jpg

    Just an awesome figure! I only wish they red eyes were brighter.

    I think there's a very good chance MP-10B will be reissued. Japan loves them some Convoys. I'd like to get one myself, because I wasn't collecting non-show MPs when it first came out. But I'd jump at the chance to get one now (along with the SG MP-10 coming out).

    There was, I got mine on discount at the tail end of the second run (Which was likely Hasbro Asia)

    I'm buying that KO trailer. Takara is leaving money on the table by not doing the trailer yet again.

    TRUTH

    I guess all the scalpers and gougers on Ebay have realized they're on borrowed time now.

    That trailer is just too sexy to pass up with this guy. Any word on where/when/who it will show up with?

    If you want a completed MP10B you have no choice but to get the KO trailer.

    @Bots and Bits might be able to tell us who makes the trailer. The pics came from his FB post.
