    "Final Edition", so they're probably retiring it now.

    I wonder if it'll have a unique deco, or any special accessories.

    The base (with voice chip) that comes with the toy will have a secret message (voice done by Genda Tessho / G1 Convoy) about the next masterpiece toy.

    Pointless. I could understand an all-out MP-04 + roller + stand final re-issue but this is kinda pointless unless there are actually people out there that still don't own this??

    Wow, this makes like eight releases of this mold between Takara and Hasbro. (Hasbro: 20th ann. and 20th ann. of the '86 movie. Takara: MP-1, MP-2, MP-4, MP-1B, MP-4S and MP-1L)

    I don't think this version is going to come with the trailer seeing as they're numbering it MP-1L rather than MP-4L.

    TakaraTomy are really enjoying this secret announcements of future MPs through stuff packaged with repainted MP Convoys. It's rather quick of them to be announcing the next MP (after MP-9). They must be rather far along the design and engineering phase now. If MP-1L is released next March then MP-10 should be out within the year.

    I don't own this mold.

    I was very very close to purchasing the Nemesis Prime exclusive at a fan meet a few months back, but this hasn't swayed me to it.

    I guess this is a homage to The Return of Optimus Prime (TROOP).

    Rodimus! Give that Matrix now Hotrod! :lol 

    P.S At that price, I'll wait for more details. If Galvatron is one his forearm COMMs, I'm sold.

    I wish Hasbro can release the sleep mode MP-01 here so I can own a black OP. The Tak version is way too expensive for me. As for the final ed I am sure it's a way for them to reveal the next MP.

    Sleep mode isn't black but very warm gray and very cool gray. Like if you were to take the original color scheme and turn it as gray as you could with still having some color to it.

    Convoy Black is Black. And he's not Nemesis Prime like some people refer to him as. :)  Convoy Black wasn't too expensive. Convoy Sleep Mode was though.

    I don't have this mold. I don't ever plan on this mold because its too big in scale with any other bots. I would rather just nab Faith leader.

    I get the feeling that the message is gonna say "Drink more Ovaltine." :p 

    As far as yet another Masterpiece Optimus Prime goes, unless this one has a black gun like my 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime does (which, BTW, still needs a new set of legs if anyone's interested, end shameless plug), I'll pass.
