    At places like AJ, but stateside he will be closer to 400.
    I bought MP44 off AJ for about 325, to save money.
    Unless TT does SG or TP Prime, MP44 will be my last Masterpiece Prime.

    Car Robots Black Convoy makes more sense to me; a black repaint so soon and with it's own number seems unlikely. And personally speaking, I already anticipated more departures from US G1 and BW after MP48; this is just another 'leftfield' reveal that further cements that for me. The MP will then continue to sample 'the best' from all continuities (while inbetween still working on finishing off the remainders of the season 1 (and 2?) cast of G1 and BW).

    If this really is CR Black Convoy, it makes you think what MP50 is gonna be: Fire Convoy? Super Ginrai?? Armada Prime???

    I'm really curious if this will come with a trailer or not. If this were a mostly straight redeco of MP-44, then not going with subnumbering, a la the retail release MP-10B, is odd, but whatever. Either way, this may not be AS expensive as MP-44 IF Takara ditches the trailer, a la MP-10B, and just releases the cab and some accessories (gun, axe, matrix, some other stuff). I think it'd make sense to ditch the trailer here, to help incentivize some people to go in on their third MP Black Convoy, but at this point who knows.

    I expected a Black Convoy 3.0 again at some point, Because Convoy, but I was curious if Takara would do it as a retail release or go back to it being an exclusive like MP-1B and most other Black Convoy redecos, while saving a retail release MP-44 redeco slot for MP-44+ and/or Convoy G2 Version.

    I'm not expecting Car Robots Black Convoy, but I'd love to be surprised. That would be neat, and likely beget a MP G2 Laser Convoy redeco at some point, and I'm all for more MP G2 anything.

    Didn't Armada come in third for that Star Saber vote? Behind Primal? Think they might try and flush out all the primes and leaders?

    Actually Armada Prime came in second. Optimus Primal was 6th.

    This surprises no one. I'm more curious if versions without the audio (or accessories) will be cheaper.

    On that note, given how the bulky backpack was for the audio feature, might they retool such a version to have a slimmer back? Then release a simpler G1 color version? It sounds like a bit much, but they've gone hog wild with repaints before.

    Not sure how or why anyone is actually surprised by this. As we've known for umpteen years now, whenever there's a new Optimus Prime design, there's always and inevitably a ridiculously stupic black repaint of it.

    You see, that was my first thought but... Armada is never ranked second, especially before Beast Wars. Unreal.

    We are almost at MP-50.

    If MP-50 ISN’T Galvatron I will start flipping tables out of blind rage and curse uncontrollably while doing so.

    Oh, look! Another person stating the MP line is doomed.

    Not a Diaclone color scheme = pass.

    Interesting move, though, giving it its own number.

    Now that is different enough and simply beautiful that it warrants a purchase, I doubt it'll ever happen. I'm still holding out hope of a + version comes out as good as your render.
