    Fans: We think we finally understand Takara’s numbering system—

    It doesn’t. It’s just funny to read people trying to make sense of it. They can name MP Galvatron “MP 69” for all I care as long as it’s made.

    I don’t know if I’m surprised or not a number still generates this much discussion. Touché.

    As for this release, I’m definitely out. It was expected and not anything I want. Props to all you Black Convoy collectors!

    I think a lot of people were really excited for a potential unique mold Nemesis of some sort since he had his own number instead of a dash-letter name, so that's a little disappointing. I don't think the naming scheme is wrong though, Darkstone puts it best:

    As a fan of RID/Car Robots, i was really hoping for some sort of Masterpiece Scourge with the potential for a MP laser prime repaint, but this still ain't too bad. I hope its just the cab and no trailer. It would be a great way to get this fig for sub $300. Give me the figure, and a sword, and call it. Dont' try and find wacky repaints for all the characters and gear too. Nemesis prime doesn't need Starscream shoulders and an EeEvIlL SpIkE.

    It is worth noting this means we're officially moving away from mp10 repaints. Its the end of an era! Four months and we already got a repaint, which means i think MP10 is officially retired! I'm gonna miss all the repaints, but its neat to think you can now have a complete collection of MP10s with (potentially) no more being released. Anyone know how many total variants there are?

    Well people are thinking he has more of a toy head. So potentially that means a toy styled rifle. I can’t think of many accessories to add. Although I’ve got a strong feeling they may still include the axe.
    Bruh they literally said the price is gonna be less.
    Correction, that is a genius thought but of low likelihood. Some company should just make some KO moulds of the Starscream head so you can dress up your Primes as seekers.

    Bruh I missed that bit.

    Will fix it (clears throat) “Just your standard boring black and red prime, just in $250 flavor. nothing new here.”

    Autobot insignias = yawn

    Deception insignias = maybe if the price isn’t ridiculous (which it absolutely will be, so why did I post a reply....)

    That\'s... actually kinda disappointing. I was really hoping for RiD Scourge.

    Are you guys talking about CAD?
    This guy will be under $180 USD if you preorder from a Japanese e-tailer.

    Even after release, it will be sold for way under the MSRP. That's how it works here in Japan.

    I was hoping for something better...

    The "evil clone"/"evil version" of 'the hero' has been done to death...since Bizarro, from Superman.

    And that must have been an old trope back then too...

    MSRP basically is just a scare tactic to get ppl preorder.
