Thanks to an early eBay auction, we have in-hand in-box images of MP-10 Year of the Horse Optimus Prime. This is a Hasbro Asia exclusive paint job for the Masterpiece Prime that came out in Japan and then the US recently.

Check out pics and info here: Transformers Masterpiece Platinum Series MP-10 Year of the Horse Optimus Prime.

So per my google-fu, that's $108 American for Starscream and $128 American for Prime.

Not bad, if they end up being TRU/Amazon/Whatever exclusives over here for that price.
deaculpa
trailer, please?!
Autobot78
Rad!!!
MechaFanboy
I assume that's the price without the trailer.

I take it these will go up for preorders soon then. Don't know about starscream, but definitely interested in the prime.

I read this as MP10 HORSE OPTIMUS and got confused.

Oh man.

An Optimus that transformed into a horse would be fucking awesome!

Prime needs his trailer, complete with lots of knackered horses being transported to the glue factory.

$120 or less with the trailer? Count me in. Without? I'd have to see it first.
BWfan86
Super confused. Forgetting about the trailer, what makes this year of the horse version different from MP-10?
BWfan86
Hmm, reading the first post, it looks like some deco differences...

"*Smokestack, grill and window in Gold colour
*Various metallic paint application
*Special "Autobot Year of Horse" faction logo"

I'd totally be down for this if it was identical to MP-10, since I missed out on the stateside release last year.

Great! A new Prime to complete my display!

Year of the Dragon DOTM Ultimate Prime
Year of the Snake Energon Prime
Year of the Horse MP-10 Optimus

On that pattern, the Year of the Sheep will probably have a special edition AoE Optimus Prime.

Yes, Yes....FUCK yes...

Also, this talk of having a gold chrome grill, smokestacks etc made me think of this Lucky Draw TF:

Convoy (Gold Wheels) - Japanese Transformers - TFW2005

Autovolt 127
I wonder if Starscream's deco will be based on the G1 version?
Nightviper1115
So is there any idea on who's gonna be stocking these? I NEED a MP Prime that doesn't require a mortgage to buy

Sweet fancy Moses !

Gold on him, yup, sounds like Horse to me. They can be a little showy at times. ( I know, I'm year of the horse.)

REALLY would like this. Still would rather see some pics though. And BETTER come with trailer.
RedAlert Rescue
I guess them might not want to do it but it would have been cool if they'd made a Black trailer that would have been a nice G2 homage and also doubled up as an accessory for the Black Optimus release in Japan.

If he has a Trailer perhaps he can have a cascade of mustang horses running up the side that might look neat. (rather than one Horse alone) or no special deco at all.
Slimshadow457
Could someone digibash Prime with gold?
bignick1693
I would be happy with the mp10 repaint since I don't have the original.
gakken85
I wish they'd made some without the trailer in the first place. It just sits in my closet.
BWfan86
If YOTH OP looks like that lucky draw figure, I am probably going to have to pass on it.
deathsheadII
looks like i may be getting a 4th mp10 mold damn
Electro Rush
I hope the "Year Of The Horse" logo isn't too ugly.
Danny Boy
Tempted but not sure about the gold grill and stacks. Have to see pictures.

i'm hoping Hasbro has the courage to go for the obvious MLP homage/crossover myself. Seriously, Twiight Sparkle on Prime's shoulder is just so right.

If they don't, (or if they do and stodgy transformers fans complain) then the horsey insignia is an easy enough reprolabels fix.

I'm in. I don't have this mold yet and this sounds like a way better price than the $300 takara second run.
mikenoynoy
To all the scalpers on eBay......ha, ha, ha,ha, ha, ha, ha!
D POK
I really would be hesitant to get all that excited about this MP Prime just yet. With a deco as described, this thing has the potential to melt your eyes, face, and everything along with it. I'm talking " supa' gaudy" hear. This wouldn't be the first eye-sour deco out China to menace the fandom. I'm just saying, "brace yourselves".
Paradigm-Shift Prime
Intrigued, could go right or wrong with a niche paint job on a MP figure
blueben
If we know TT well, the will never miss the chance to keep re-doing prime. It's just a matter of time when.

Really? This news probably sent more than a few running into their sweat-soaked arms. Many that missed out on MP-10 were hoping for a normal re-issue with minimal tampering and now that they know they're going to have to live with gold chrome and weird icons on what is going to be the centerpiece of their TF collection, those eBay prices are probably looking more reasonable.

I had given up on this YotH being the mythical cheap MP-10 re-issue and bought the Asian relaunch Convoy. It was pricey, but I don't regret it. I strongly prefer the Takara colors and packaging, anyway.

Agreed...this thing sounds like ass. It'll probably make good company with Stinkin Fart Soundwave.
spartan 3764
If i had to bet, his color scheme would be similar to the Year of the Horse MLP figure.
Which spotted lots of black with dark shades of red.

Spot on.
BenjaminXavier
If the previous rumors hold, he'll have the trailer in clear plastic.
archieboy
I hope this will have a similar packaging with TRU MP-10 so that I can keep it MISB.

It's pretty safe to say this will be for the figure only. No trailer.

MLP fans, sigh...
Oktoberfest
The description lacks essential information.

WHERE / WHICH COUNTRIES is this supposed to be released ?

USA, Singapore ? Where concretely.

MLP-10?

But yeah, I'd like something associated with mlp on this figure.
Cheebs
This year of/platinum line certainly has its share of problems.

Either the mold kind of sucks, like Energon Ops, DotM Ops, Supreme Starscream, Weaponizer Magnus, etc...

...or the deco is something odd like gold chrome on a nice Optimus.

The only one that has really worked has been Omega Supreme I guess. And even that isn't the best mold in the world.
LegendAntihero
Those pictures are the original MP10 and Starscream. The new ones must look different for me to want to buy them
BWfan86
Don't know why they just don't release MP-10 again. Optimus Prime is probably the biggest guaranteed seller of all the TFs.

Perhaps, but the fact remains many people missed out on the first release of MP10. I would hazard to bet that a re-release would sell extremely well. Either way, I'm hoping that this repaint looks decent. Of course, I'd rather see a MP Pepsi Prime over just about anything.
Stepper
Definitely that is the price without the trailer.
