Incorrect, fanstoys FIRST toy was a static trailer for MP-01. IE, the one I got.
Thought that was a different company and FT did the first transforming one.
Justi toys did the non transforming one
I just had a thought. If there's a possible redo of MP Ultra Magnus in the future perhaps the new MP Optimus could possibly have features made for Ultra Magnus to make sure we do get a transforming cab for him this time around as opposed to the last attempt that tried to but wasn't able to.
Hugh, guess you’re right. Could have sworn that box said fanstoys.
Fanstoys wasn’t even a company back then I don’t think .
Ah shit, I remember being tempted to purchase that original trailer to go with my 20th Annie Prime. Then, there was nothing to put in the trailer, and I think I was put off that it wasn't official.
It would be cool if they made the trailer fold out in some interesting ways, like the original Battle Convoy sketches:
At the same time, I don't think they'll bother deviating too much from the cartoon. How many times did we actually see the trailer open? And did we ever actually see what was inside it?
I remember that. I guess the trailer that came with MP-4 made that obsolete.
You need some periods in your life......................... please..........
May not in name, but same guy. I still have mine, and the insets he made later to spruce it up.
Or maybe he doesn't pause when he talks. I know quite a few people like that lol. They don't take a breath nor let you talk and/or leave haha!
Let's call this dude Blur...
Ya, Mircro machines man! haha!
If they do the trailer, which is accepted as a given at this point, I hope they make advances to it like they did between MP-04 and MP-10's trailers. Don't know what it would be. MP-10's trailer and Roller were pretty sweet, which makes me think that maybe they could just do the cab compatible with MP-10's trailer, and for those that don't have the MP-10 trailer...sell it separately.
Aside from the articulation, what is MP-10 didn't manage to have?
Didn't the objective of the creation of MP-10 is to reflect the "toon accuracy" of the character?
And they still missed something? So are we gonna expect tons of MP retools of previous releases for the sake of "endless toon accuracy" capturing?
You know, I feel it's the Optimus Prime base material is kinda laughing on the designers.
Like, "It's been 35 years & you guys still can't interpret me 100%? You can't see me?"
Somebody find some screenshots, STAT!
No. Toon accuracy wasn't the objective with MP-10. He was part of the real-world series.
I keep seeing these pictures of MP-01, and I actually have a renewed appreciation for him. Kinda want to mess with him again.
I had the original with the cardboard trailer. Same with the original MP Ultra Magnus. I upgraded both trailers with some plastic pieces inside to make them stronger and with working wheels from other toys. I also made copies of the Ultra Magnus trailer and made him some cardboard armor.
The 20th Anniversary Prime is the only MP Prime I currently have, and I love it! Of course, him and the 1st Megatron are almost the only MPs I have, so I'm sure I'll have to get V2 Prime and Megs if I ever want to get any others to put with them.
Yeah many fans today, don't understand the drought and Desperation of G1 fans back then, we'd take anything we could get that looked slightly like the old series back in the Beast Wars through Unicron trilogy days. Now many of us are finally filling out our collection with 3rd party stuff and these days it's more like when, than if it could ever happen. Back in the day we were lucky if we got 1 MP a year.
