    Imagine if MP-50 was Energon Ironhide.

    Takara and Hasbro have a nasty tendency of making simple repaints in this line a lot more expensive

    I expect this guy to be a black MP-44, but my wildly unrealistic hope is that they’ll keep the voice box and replace the voice clips with some of the evil-sounding lines from the movies. Like imagine activating the voice box on this guy and he says “We will kill them all,” or “Who dares to challenge me?”

    Me too. I'm in at a $200 or below price. I had 44 and while I do think it's good I just don't see it as being $400+ good.

    The head seems different - very toy-esque. Reminds me of Nucleon Quest Super Convoy.

    Vehicle mode looks rather plain, I hope the accessories spice things up a bit. Price seems to be about half of regular MP-44 which isn’t too bad. Still too expensive, but hey.

    Also, RIP Masterpiece Car Robots Black Convoy. Maybe someday.

    Only BW Megatron is more expensive than this, Dinobot was also 28000¥ before discounts and every other BW MP is cheaper.

    That's awesome bc I'm not inclined to buy it. My head rule is original 'toon only.

    Its about a 10 dollar difference ,(19600 vs 18821)but counting shipping unless they change something this will be cheaper than Dinobot for those of in the US using Amazon jp. I .eant the bigger BW, sorry.

    Now that I think about Dinobot had the benefit of a +30 % , I want to say 33 or 34.

    LOL at people expecting this to be something other than a repainted MP-44.

    As I said, future Black Friday sale material.

    Probably a bad photo render or based on Nucleon Quest

    Looks exactly as one would expect. Should come to about $180ish USD before shipping after the preorder discount.

    I have absolutely no interest in this but I hope it sells well and will help fund more exciting figures in the future.

    Yep, Dinobot got all the way down to 33% off. MP44 also saw a 33% discount on Amazon so it's not out of the question that we would see that with this figure again.

    Autobot symbols? Very useful.
    Half price with no trailer? Smart choice.
    Potential toy head? I’m down.
    There’s a lot of alternate universe Black Convoy’s who aren’t decepticons. Some are drones. Daniel had a mech suit. Nucleon Quest Convoy being on of the more famous examples.
