    Hmm. I'll be damned.

    I'm sure it'll be still the same size as the leader standar (MP-10/MP-36/MPM-04).

    TTS 2015 reveal Ironhide came out in January 2016. Same was true for Soundwave (TTS 2012)?

    What a way to start 2019! Hell yes

    And boom goes the dynamite.

    Usually I'm the first to piss and moan about another Optimus Prime but after handling MP-10 last night and experiencing again all of the flaws and limitations of his outdated engineering, I have to agree that a new and improved mold of the guy to reflect the new direction of the Masterpiece line is a must.

    Looks like I'll have to update my signature image soon too. :D

    Haha, I don't doubt it. Although none of my MP-10 molds are going anywhere. They're far from bad figures and each one has a story when I acquired them.

    MP-36 Megatron just had to show up his old rival to the point where Prime felt it necessary to get some work done to compete. :D

    Looking forward to see the finished figure/proto. When is this show when he will be revealed finally?
    Maybe we will just get the figure without the trailer?

    Nice - unless it's the angle of the photo, he seems to have those boot-cut jeans-shaped legs that Sunstreaker and Ironhide have. (I may not be a fan of 'toon simplicity - yay for Cordon to fix my Sunstreaker and all of that) - but I do love the silhouettes and shapes of the newer figures. The only problem is I have too many versions of MP-10 to shift...

    That lower leg looks perfect!! And the more square looking windshield and more proportionate bicep look great too. Looking forward to it!! Optimus.jpg

    Happy days - I’ll be picking up 29+ and a brand new toon accurate Prime it would seem. This is properly exciting stuff!

    Yeah, while MP-10 has the physique of an NFL linebacker, the proportions on this Optimus Prime really remind me of the classic heroic cowboy in his boots and all, complete with Peter Cullen voice (although Ironhide took the country twang :D ).
