    Incredibly small changes that IMO don’t warrant an entirely new sculpt when we still are not even close to finish the ark or S1 crew. But let’s keep rebooting characters. I think the seekers are kind of old. Now that we have all 6 we can remake all six in V3 style

    Don't be ridiculous. I was just pointing out why MP-10 looks weird. My preferred Convoy is MP-01 even though he's got more proportional problems than MP-10.

    MP-10 looks better because it is a real Transformer toy, that picture is just a drawing on your computer screen.

    No, MP 10 is a dated transformer toy. It could be made better and I have no doubt TT will. This is in no way saying MP 10 sucks, it is a great Optimus.

    It just looks a bit dated compared to the newest MP's.

    I have to agree with your assessment. MP-01 and MP-10, while awesome in their own right, aren't 100% definitive of the G1 cartoon rendition of Optimus Prime. A figure that gets pretty damn close to it would have to be Toyworld's Primorion. It has great proportions, hides much of the wheels that MP-10 just shows off in its glory, and seems to really step up the game that Takara ought to contend with. Still, the choice, with regards to going through with a V3 Optimus, and how far it has to compete with 3rd parties, is up to Takara. With having said that, if Takara could put that computer image into toy form, in a most faithful fashion, then I'd gladly 5th/10th dip into another Optimus again! Good times ;) .

    100% agree. While it still holds up ok, it looks really dated compared to Megs and the new toon-accurate MPs. I, too, am hoping at some point we get a new Prime.

    I think a V3 Prime could easily just be a remold of V2. And when we do get a version 3, I hope it's just cab and not a new trailer too.

    But seeing people use "dated" for a 7 year old toy, just makes me sad inside.

    That's why I use Flikr, The Official Photohosting Site For People Too Sad About V3 Prime To Update Their Account To Enable 3rd Party Hosting. :thumb 

    Just kidding, I'm baked, what's this all about? Sunstreaker?

    Give me my Sunstreaker now please.

    I hope whenever version 3 comes out there is absolutely a trailer that comes with it and hopefully with some more versatility than the other versions.

    So glad they brought the coins back, they are just a little harder to get for the cheap now though.

    The "Blue" windscreen/glass looks really green in that pic. Don't get me wrong, I've studied the color wheel, I know what happens when you mix blue and yellow but.....

    So, as I said - released in Asia ahead of schedule.

    That looks gorgeous! Even the clear plastic insert looks better than sunsurge!!!


    So, it’s in stock then? Or are these TT’s official pictures?

    How much more versatile can it get? It's already a damn near perfect recreation of the original. Just make it so V3 can attach to the V2 trailer and save some folks a bit of coin for purchasing the latest redo.
