    Has any real information come out about this, other than the stand? If it really is the Final Edition of this mold, I would imagine it would come with some fan fare, but its only a month away and there's hardly been a peep

    I think it's because it has a normal paintjob. As far as I know there aren't any major changes, and this mold has seen numerous iterations..maybe the interest is just low. :)

    Agree with Digilaut: the mold will be always the same. Maybe in my opinion, if will be some interest for him, it'll be for an hypothetical different and detailed paintjob... and logically for the teaser for the next MP hidden in the stand :D 

    I'll not wonder anyway if this release won't be so different from the 20th dvd edition...

    According to TakaraTomy, the MP-01 mould has been fixed to resotre it back to its original state for this "final" production. I do feel this also signifies the end of "Convoy" in Japan.

    Did the mould degrade much over the various rereleases then? I only have an original MP-01 so I don't know about any issues with the others.

    I have the 20th Anniversary DVD Masterpiece Prime and I don't have any noticeable problems with him.. other than short smokestacks of course. So I assume this MP-01 Final Edition is just gonna be Optimus by himself without the trailer, right?

    They should be bundling him with the trailer and Roller. Can't see much point in him otherwise, save for the 3 people that don't already have some version of him.

    If it were going to have the trailer they would have used MP-04L.

    And i am one of the three people that dont have it yet so i preordered this as soon as bbts had it up!

    I ended up being one of those MP Prime completists (wasn't intentional) and I'll tell you now that I have interest in getting this figure. I do however wish Takara would put out a little more info so we could see exactly what it is and how it differs from previous releases, if at all.
