    If you haven't already noticed, Optimus and Bumblee are the TOP seller for Has/Tak. Unfortunately, we won't be getting an MP Bumblebee but you can expect him on more crappy lines like Kreo, TFA, TFP, TFM.

    Is this logical.....? Ask Has/Tak

    1. Primes sell better
    2. Easier to engineer
    3. It's been much longer since the previous MP Prime than since MP Megatron

    I'm also an avid Gundam fan and I can tell you, Bandai runs the RX-78 model into the ground just as much, if not more. It's just the Japanese sales mentality I guess.

    I think they wanted to cement the smaller scale in fans' minds, while retaining the higher prices of bigger toys. It's win/win for them.

    1. The original MP Prime sucks.
    2. Optimus is a fore-sure seller.
    3. The original MP Prime sucks.
    4. They wanted to create a smaller prime that would scale better with the other MP's.
    5. The original MP Prime sucks.

    Oh, and did I mention? The Original MP Prime sucks.

    MP-01 looks a bit too blocky and has way too much diecast.
    MP-10 is almost perfect.

    They both have merits and demerits. Mp10 is expensive. There's no arguing otherwise...but once you look past mp1s size and heft, it just feels like theres a gap there.

    How....How does it suck? It's a solid toy, it's awesome.
    Plus it's with a decent enough scale for my Beast Wars figures.

    MP-10 is too small and lacks some detailing. For example, I hate MP-10's running lights on the top of the cab.

    And for me, there is no such thing as "too much die-cast." I like die-cast.


    MP-01 was an absolutely unbelievable TF toy for 2003.

    MP-10 was a perfectly decent toy for 2011.

    anybody saying mp-01 sucks needs their head examined for stupidity.

    No, you didn't.

    The problem is people like you that are too damn jaded to realize that just because something newer comes out it doesn't mean that the previous version "sucked". The first MP Prime was perfection. Nothing put out now or in the future will ever take that away from it.
