    Will wait for in hand reviews of MP New Prime first. (I sense another 1st edition QC debacle coming a la MP-09 Rodimus.)

    Issue is US retailers and their cost-cutting.

    According to Figure-Oh magazine, the trailer's side(s) open and can be modded to store the recently released TFP danglers. Doesn't even sound like it opens like the voyager trailer.

    I am not sure about the release date, as of now it's due out in September.

    Also in this magazine, a lucky draw Dual Model Optimus Prime has been annonced. It is a Uniqlo colour version previously seen as a shop display;

    It comes unassembled, doesn't appear to include logo stickers or emblems. Only 1 winner.

    Man, it's actually a little embarrassing how excited I am to buy another Optimus Prime toy - but it looks so fantastic. Can't wait to be a test pilot!

    Wow anytime a lucky draw comes out I feel like I'll have a better chance of winning it just because I live in Japan, guess I can't get my hopes up :( 
    Amazing looking and too bad UNIQLO didn't have special versions of this dmk for sale.

    You're welcome. I hope the G1 Convoy is different than previous reissues like the G1 Megatron is.

    I had the same thought when we first learned of MP10 price. I can see MP9 as being 250 while MP10 as 200 since Rodimus has 4 modes and is more complex in its engineering. Surprisingly, that's not the case. Personally with it smaller scale, I think MP10 should be no more than 150.

    +3, count me as well. I'll shall wait for the review. And if I miss it, I can always wait for a Magnus repaint.
