Each to their own. I still really dig MP-10 and it's pretty much a perfect Optimus Prime when viewed in the context of MP-08 through to about MP-26. It's only since they changed the direction of the line to go super toon accurate that it's starting to stand out a little. Honestly? I think Sideswipe and the Datsuns are showing their age WAY more than MP-10. The standard version of MP-10 is a little off next to MP-36, but I have him in full gold chrome as well as a cell-shaded paint job and EVA purple and the alterntae deco's really makes him pop and he looks great with chrome and cell shaded Meg's. I'm interested to see the new V3 but it's got some major flaws baked into the concept from the start, no matter what the final product is like. It's going to be really gappy and panel-lined (which I'm hoping they can get away with if the paint and colours are good) But its also going to be insanely expensive, it's going to have a bunch of voice gimmicks that won't use English language clips, it still won't have proper hand articulation, there's a pretty beefy backpack thanks to the aforementioned audio gimmick, and it's honestly 50/50 at this point as to how durable the paint finish will be. I still think it has the potential to be a worthy replacement for MP-10, but if it's RRP is less than US$350 I'll be gobsmacked (and yes, there are discounts for pre-orders but they aren't available to everyone - Amazon Japan is blocked to Australians and I have to pay an additional 10% GST which eats up a chunk of the discount. I'm currently on the hook for US$236 for MP-43 and that doesn;t inlude GST or shipping so I'm expecting it to get close to US$280/290 by the time I have it in hand. I expect V3 Prime to be even more than that given the trailer) MS-01 and the TE Prime are both super interesting and worthy of notice. Sadly (for my wallet) I'll probably be getting them all. I also desperately hope that we see at least one more MP Megatron offering, though I feel the rapid KO of MP-36 has killed much chance of that.
