    NNNOOOOWWW I see the eye difference. Dammit.. I'm just gonna repaint mine. I can't justify dropping $200 on that guy, even if I were to sell my lilacwave off..

    I actually have one of those terry-cloth Jedi robes that I find is really great because of the huge pockets that are soft, so they don't scratch the toys when I'm carrying from their shelves to my couch.

    But you also get a smaller eye, that must be worth it? :D 

    (I'm getting mine from Kapow. Love the color. Hadn't noticed the smaller eye until Sam posted these photos. Will keep both versions. Not because of the size of the eye. :D  But yeah, it's expensive... :oops: )

    Not just the size of the eye, the whole head is new. It’s thicker front to back, and has larger antenna. I believe the crest is also a slightly different shape.

    This big difference to me is the head is a different shape—this one is more square than the original, which was a little wider and more rectangular. The eye also appears smaller and it looks like the edge of his face (?) is thinner. It's subtle, but good for them for updating it.

    It's subtle enough where if you don't have them side by side, nobody even notices. Even side by side, it probably wouldn't be obvious if you weren't looking for the difference.

    WHAT THA?!?!? LMFAOROTF!!!! Ummm... I donts. But now dat u mention it, i kinda want one. It'd be like a smoking jacket! Only, not...

    yeah, i know you all are telling the truth, but i just cant make myself see it. Im old and my eyes arent so good so it will have to be one of those things that i gotta see in person to be able to tell. Im just glad that that "other company" that made the shockwave that i own made him in the right color FIRST and then when the reissue happened; they gave us options of either dark (normal), darker and clearish...

    One issue with Shockwaves new head that I have is the dark shape around his eye should be more a rectangle than a square. But maybe his head is too narrow altogether?

    I've seen it. I bought, then immediately sold it.
    It's a very warm orangey yellow. I know I am picky, but that was a dealbreaker.
    Will buy a canary yellow one in a heartbeat - as long as the toy battle mask is available in that color. There is no point of having MP Bumblebee without the toy battle mask. Not to me at least.

    Just a random set of 35th anniversary products and celebrations of many different things. Shall I post more?

    I don’t know why people keep saying 35th anniversaries aren’t celebrated.

    For some reason these comparisons make me want a normal MP 29 more now. Maybe the price will drop enough once 29+ is out.

    Must...stay strong...for possible Shackwave...

    Get him he's awesome. Highly underated. He's my second favorite behind Mp36.

    Funny you mentioned that with the comparisons you want the original more. I was thinking once they announced the new one I would want that and sell my two copies, but after all these comparisons I find what I have more attractive than I thought of him in the past. Yes the new one may be more anime correct, but I can't explain it but just because something is more correct and seems right just doesn't feel right to me. It's like choosing your beater car with great memories you created over a brand new Porsche. I feel the things they improved apon mp29+ are the things that caught my eye to begin with. Happy for those that like the +version but I'm satisfied with what I have.

    Oh I know they are. I'm just skeptical that the Transformers Masterpiece line will do anything. I know the first Masterpiece, MP-1, was for the 20th anniversary, and said so in print. What else was there? Anything for 25? 30? I honestly don't know.

    They don't need to celebrate every 5 years, especially if there is no outstanding product to push. A brand new hyper articulated cartoon Optimus Prime though? 35 years after the fact? It'll be like all the marketing execs birthdays and Christmases have come at once.

    It's really simple:
    Celebrating the 35th anniversary 'softens the blow' for those who don't want a new Masterpiece Optimus Prime. Since it's the 3rd version of OP in the line, they want to give an extra reason for why they're doing it (not that they need to).

    The fact that the brand has been going strong for 35 years is great and well worth celebrating anyway. They'll probably celebrate the 40th anniversary too, though maybe not in the MP line.

    Starting to believe OP3.0 could really come towards the end of 2019 and be MP-50.
