By way of ACtoys, we have a look at prototypes of the next release from third party group SXS Toys. They appear to be working on an accessory set for the MP-10 Masterpiece Optimus Prime Version 2, which so far is shown to include a rocket pack (from More than Meets the Eye Part 3 and Dinobot Island) as well as the oil pump accessory for Roller. The word is these are upscaled designs from the THS-02 Hybrid Style Convoy.

Looks a li'l too heavy for Sideswipe.

Looks to be an upscaled version of the THS-02 Hybrid Style Convoy parts...

3rd party news in the 3rd party section please.
Mechafire
Hmm. I might actually be interested in this.

Sure does. Since this is, after all, Sideswipe's rocket pack, it needs to fit on Sideswipe. Awaiting pictures of him attempting to wear it...
Detroa
Useless.

Someone makes a good sized gun already.

thx i knew

Hmm. This Is like that dr wu metroplex eye... Sometimes you guys just completely miss.
What I would like, however, would be a semi-detailed battle-damaged unicron head, big enough to take up a whole detolf shelf. I'd buy that for 99.99.
Scaleface
Sorta silly if it does not fit Masterpiece Sideswipe too. It is his pack after all.
TFXProtector
I have no problem with this. I'd buy it.
AnAutobot1985
Seems unnecessary. Pass.
charsdc2
Another $30 add-on kit!
CobramusPrime
Man I think 3rd party groups are entering my thoughts (wasn't my wallet enough?) the jetpack is welcomed, but maybe I should've thought harder about ion blaster.
ex dtw2003
Great idea, look like bad execution though.

That thing is massive and the gas filler accessory is just "wtf?".

Wow, the saying use to be "I'd buy that for $1". Freaking inflation.

In all seriousness I don't see the point of this. I don't pose my figures with their back to me. So it's pretty useless.
GAUGE
Give Sideswipe his F'ing Rocketpack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
^o^CORVUS^o^
Pass.
conleyh2006
neat but unless its 20.00 its an easy pass when takara should have included this
gawddammit
If it was designed to fit Sideswipe as well, I'd be interested. As it is now, its way too big and bulky. Pass.

that needs to happen

and that pack doesn't look too bad. though i'd prefer it also fit Sideswipe but i don't have either so i can't really complain. but if i get MP-10, i'll get this depending on the price
deathsheadII
i kind of like the way this looks

nemesisconvoy
I might grab this up, but i'm still hoping for 3rd party hands for Masterpiece Rodimus!!!
bradforj
easy pass
JDK
Hollow bits peeking over his shoulders just look really, really cheap on a masterpiece. Plus this thing is desperate for paint. Easy pass.
OptimusTimelord
So is this really just upscaled from the Hybrid Convoy? I don't have that particular figure, but what is the size of Hybrid's rocket pack like against MP-12, has anyone tried?
Timesynch
Looks okay but agreed that this needs to transform or compact in some way to fit on to MP Sideswipe's back. It seems a bit lost in a normal shelf since who displays their figures with their backs to them? Unless this includes some sort of (very strong) stand to hold up MP-10 in a flying pose, not sure this is worth it. There are similar issues with FWI-01 with Bayscream's rocket boosters on his back not being seen in a normal display but at least he had his buzzsaw and crossblades attachment.

This was by far the biggest dropped ball on MP Sideswipe. Given the MP line's incorporation of obscure gimmicks I can't believe that they left out something this obvious.
TCJJ
Looks like a Gundam backpack, which means it doesn't suit Optimus at all. Easy pass.
[Wing_Saber-X]
meh. more shoddy accessories from a random 3rd party group I don't particularly care for or need. pass.
Incepticon
*looks at MP Prime's energon axe that he used exactly one time, MP Megatron's energon mace that he used exactly one time, MP Soundwave's 'whatever that hand weapon add-on thing is' that he used exactly one time, MP Red Alert's 'crazy sparks' that appeared in one episode, MP Sideswipe's pile driver things that he used only a couple of times and never looked the same, MP Grimlock's tray, apron & crown that we saw only once or twice, MP Starscream's coronation gear that we saw exactly one time*

But this thing makes no sense and is a waste of time? Okee.
X Nightmare
Love it! Lets see it on Mp sideswipe.

jayman118

I agree totally. That would confirm Sideswipe's size issue also. But from looking at that pic I really doubt it would fit MP Sideswipe.
primetime77
if this thing came well painted etc. i might get it if it were for the right price of....cheap. i think takara should have included one to be honest.
MonaLazaBeak
If I were to ever get into MP's, I would probably be down with getting this.
primetime77
lol "confirm sideswipe's size issue"? uh guys....its a cartoon. this is like expecting a jacket that fits say a 5 foot 2" 7th grader to fit a 6 ft. 4" adult. not gonna happen without cartoon magic!! if it looked righ ton sideswipe it' be too small on prime and vice versa....you'd think a transformers board would understand cartoon magic.

It's been awhile since I've seen the episode but I think pack was kinda small on primes back, at the very least it certainly wasnt as massive as this one. I think it should have been scaled for sideswipe with a connector to fit on prime. Would look a bit small but would still be in scale
barrelks
I don't know why, but I am more excited for the accessories for roller than the backpack. I may pick it up if the colors are nice, but MP Prime is great enough for me as-is.
Victory Liner
um shouldn't that be for Sideswipe as it was Sideswipes Rocket Pack
sinwithme13
Looks weak
SwalSTAR
I don't know why people get so excited by this back pack, in my opinion it looks just like a boring grey box that u plug into the back of Prime, I remember seeing it once, why is there so much demand for it? Can someone help me?

My apologies..Obviously I never considered that..
Scaleface
Some new color photos of the backpack and accessories for MP10. I do hope it fits on Masterpiece Sideswipe, the character who actually owns the jetpack!



Hicks_Royel
Doesn't look terrible.
Timesynch
Looks OK. Wonder if Sideswipe can wear it. The Roller add-ons are neat.
