    They probably can't bring this one to the US market 'cause it's gonna be a billion dollars...

    My wallet is repeatedly jumping up and down. I want to see the toy noooooooooowww

    Oofff just realized a problem. The moment we get this, we're gonna ask for a MP Megatron V3 with wrist and toe joints. Haha, this perpetual cycle...

    It helped of course that the mods deleted entire pages of this thread after the initial reveal, but in general it's been long enough since the reveal and most have settled down enough to be civil again.

    Nah. It's too soon to ask for Megatron V3.
    Although I understand the "vicious cycle" of toy making :lol :

    Since MP-36 was release and MP Sunstreaker, I view them that they're the "new standard" of some sort.
    And I'm kinda expected that there will be a new MP OP but not this early in the game.

    MP-10 was made base from MP-09 scale-wise & toy design technology of that time.
    And I think we could all agree that MP OP V3 is made for MP-36.

    MP-10 while it has own many merits, his robot proportions isn't on par with MP-36's.
    Gorilla Arms alone will prove it. But MP OP V3 is the answer for that.

    By the way, just a thing that I'm curious about. A few pages back (maybe a 100), people started talking about this pose. I'm, like, so sure that this Prime will be able to do this, but I'm dying to know how they'll engineer this. Keep in mind, butterfly joints may not be the only thing that will help with this pose. Maybe the biceps telescope like MP10's, but the main problem is fitting all that bicep in a tiny upper arm block. Maybe the arms can shift horizontally forward to help facilitate this stoic stance.

    Auggh, it already feels like 4 million years since the reveal.

    Accessories would include in my fantasy version as follows:

    1. X1 Ion Blaster (Prime's gun)
    2. X1 Energon axe accessory
    3. X1 Sparkplug figure in hard hat
    4. X1 Jet pack (detachable) can connect to Prime's back, and be stored within the trailer both in Alt mode and battle mode.
    5. X1 Matrix of Leadership
    6. X1 trailer (if it has to come with it) with a real working rail system built into the base of the truck, so the rear gun can be moved to the exit of the truck as seen on the Cartoon both in Alt mode and battle mode..
    7. X1 Exponential Generator (incidentally they should make it so it fits into MP36's Barrel.) "80s Role Play cultural and X-Generational nostalgia factor. Just Nintendo and sega, no iphones, no real laptops or computers, no internet, no on-demand. There was tho, the ability to wield G-1 Megatron with all the gear and pretend to be Soundwave or Starscream while playing Transformers in the yard with our friends.
    8. X1 Roller
    9. X1 Large White Surf Board, with red Autobot Logo emblazoned underneath, and special feet slots that can attach it to the feet of prime, along with a translucent stand that mimics a wave just up behind the board Which the stand would slide into a grove under the board to hold it up and mimic Prime in the Ultimate Doom episode (one of the most epic 3 parters ever! and the basis for Dark of the Moon).

    Now, if you could go that far... I would feel so much better about the price normally charged for an Masterpiece Optimus Prime with trailer. Come on Takara, give us more then unusal on this one, as a treat to the fans.. Please?

    Yep, I wants it! I just hope they increase the accessories.. Can someone Please release an exponential Generator accessory, please? How about a functional slider for the base/trailer gun turret? If they are gonna give us another, up the ante and give us a bit more on this one. Jet Pack?

    I don't care what anyone says about the odds, this Optimus will be forever incomplete until an MP Megatron V-D(evastion) is released and is a tank. That is not up for debate.

    It'll be time for a magazine in a week or so. Would be nice to get a legitimate pic. Or a clearer pic of some part atleast, wouldn't mind seeing what's going on with the trailer.

    For all of you people disappointed that there won't be English voice clips with this figure, just wait for the Hasbro version. And yes, there WILL be a Hasbro version. Hasbro has been quite happy to release versions of both MP-01 and MP-10 stateside in the past, so I have no reason to suppose the 35th Anniversary figure won't be receiving the same treatment.

    My vote for the top 5 voice clips of a Cullen/Hasbro effort:


    1./ "Megatron must be stopped ... no matter the cost."
    2./ "Autobots! Transform and roll out!"
    3./ "One shall stand, one shall fall ..."
    4./ "Ready the shuttle for launch!"
    5./ "There's a snake in my boot!"

    I’d also like a hidden voice recording:
    4./ Out of the way Hot Rod! Urggh. Followed by Megatrons blast effect and Optimus falling... just to drive home who’s fault it was that our Hero died. (Bloody hot rod, that little shit) :mad:

    I always pretended Prime was reading stories to the Autobots when watching the opening.

    Thats if they feel like paying the money this time. I remember getting the 20th? anniversary one and being totally disappointed in the jabroni they found to do the voice clips.
    Im kind of looking forward too "Traaanssfoooorm" for the Japanese clip
