    lmfao, Covoy SLEEP MODE? They're offering a dead body as a toy :lol  (don't worry kids, grandpa's just sleeping!)
    Strange how they decided to keep the dimmed yellow bits, but it looks kind of okay.

    Anyway, cool that they're doing this for 2010.

    This may get exciting. Really hope we see this celebrated (not sure if that is the best term) well. They sure find any possible reason to whore out this MP Prime Mold.

    Maybe they'll make a universe prowl remold that features a childhood-scarring-fire-and-smoke-coming-out-of-eyes-and-mouth effect?

    Still makes me shudder to this day.

    I don't know why they don't just reissue the MP-01 mold (similar to Black Convoy) instead of this, I don't remember seeing Prime's trailer parked in the corner of the medical room. Just another way to gouge more money, I suppose.

    Yep and even the Megatron gun is purple in a pre-Galvatron sort of way. I have to get MP-04s if nothing else but for the geek factor of it. Takara, a sick way to celebrate 2010.

    So... we'll get a Convoy secret message with Disney Monochrome MP-04S telling us that the next MP will be Rodimus. Duh.

    Actually, in a weird way, you can use the trailer in base mode, to lay down Prime on, as his death bed. I'm curious on what the color changes are on the trailer itself. I passed up MP-04, since I already have MP-01 and the original Hasbro MP Prime. But this version of MP-04 makes it worth it for the trailer, and getting a repainted Prime figure. :)

    The blurb at the bottom of the image with the cab and trailer (※ コンテナはクリアカラになります。) mentions that the "container" will be clear-colored. I'm assuming they're referring to the trailer.

    Hmmm, DEAD Convoy.

    So, now this is exactly the right time to kill off Convoy and bring Oputimasu Puraimu to the Japanese fans, eh?
