    Hi everyone!

    New pictures of Masterpeice Black Optimus Prime have been put on an a website named hk-tf.com thanks to two posters named Kaiser and Redfish. It looks like the problems with the windows that some of the earlier releases of this mold suffered from, have been corrected for this release. The pictures reveal that Rodimus Prime is now on Black Optimus Prime's communicator.

    It seems that this particular version did not include the comic. Thanks to a second thread on the site, it would seem that on Black Optimus's other communicator....is Optimus Prime?

    Also, a site named etoysjapan.com had this information posted:

    (shoud be spelled velvet and authorized.)

    Here are links to the two threads:

    mp???? - TF???? - HK-TF ???? - Powered by Discuz!

    MP????????????? - TF???? - HK-TF ???? - Powered by Discuz!

    etoysjapan.com - Transformers Masterpiece MP-01B Black Optimus Prime

    Will there be two versions of Masterpeice Black Optimus Prime? Will the Japanese version not include the plate and bag?

    I'm attaching all the pictures below:

    It's just Prime painted Black. Didn't bother to change Faction logo, Nah I'm going to pass on this one. But thanks for the pics they are great.

    Is this supposed to be Nucleon Quest Convoy? For those who don't know, earlier in this decade, TRU Japan had an exclusive black repainted Powermaster Prime/Super Ginrai and a bio was made up saying he was Optimus Prime/Convoy and was powered by nucleon, some sort of energy from nebulos, I believe. Wonder if this Black Convoy who seems to be a Cybertron and not a Destron is that same character.

    I wonder if the ankle connector still falls off if you look at it wrong. This mold has several issues that never seem to be corrected. Possibly because they know its Convoy, and its going to sell anyways.

    Let's face the facts:

    MP01 had a picture of Starscream in his communicator, months later we got a MP Screamer.
    2010 is the title for season 3 of japanese G1, which features Rodimus as the main character.

    The next MP will be Rodimus Prime.

    About the black prime... pass.

    That's pretty boring. I think the Nucleon Quest thing would have been better.

    I agree. I would have preferred something like either Nucleon Quest, or Robot Masters, where it's still Optimus, just wearing armor. I'm still looking forward to finding out what's in the comic though! :)

    20th Ann. Prime had Megatron and Grimlock in his arm...to add to to this theory.

    Rodimus Prime would make sense as a MP. I hope he will be as big as Prime though + trailer, not Starscream / Grimlock height...but I doubt it.

    The windows on the chest didn't line up properly on the majority of the figs from this mold (ie MP Prime, MP Ultra Magnus, MP-04, 20th Anni Prime, etc). However some were better than others. I have 3 versions of this mold in-hand and only MP-01 has any issues w/ the windows and they really aren't that noticeable.

    Anyway, I love the way this looks. I would have preferred a remolded symbol on the shoulder, but a Black Prime is always fun, regardless. So what is the actual release date for this guy? I have seen November, and now I am seeing January. Anyone know for sure which is correct?

    Does like nice; but easy to resist.

    Interested to see if the communicator-pictures MP theory holds up, and I see I'm not the only one. Been one of the people saying for a long time that the next logical choices would be Rodimus Prime or Galvatron! See if the crystal ball is working... ;) 

    Wandering further off topic, did the Ultra Magnus repaint feature different characters on the communicators? Don't have that one myself.

    This is pretty much my definition of a "lazy repaint". For a toy this expensive, I need a damn good reason to have more than one of the mold.
