    Yeah, I'm in the same boat as the majority. I wish it wasn't another prime, even if it's a repaint. The completionist in me says get it. But I was hoping for a different character:( ...

    So the current speculation is MP-44 without the trailer? Nah, I'm good

    I'd be more interested in a white repaint, especially if Takara ever figures out a good way to engineer the trailer armor for Ultra Magnus to wrap around and attach to the MP-44 mold without sacrificing too much articulation.

    Still, I'm curious to see how MP-49 turns out and what makes it so special to give it its own number designation.

    Oh, look! Another person that doesn't understand how online retailers put inventory on holiday sales.

    Black Convoy was also the Japanese name for G1 Nemesis Prime.

    Are we sure this is not a TE/Magic Square -- TT collaboration?

    Thanks buddy! Me too!!! I probably won't be able to afford it though :lol 

    "Black Convoy" sometimes also refers to a 2000 Japanese convention exclusive black repaint of the G1 toy:

    I wonder if this will be an Eldedroid (Autobot) or Nemesis/Scourge (Decept).  Itll be nice if it has an updated Daniel if it comes as an Autobot.

    It would be baller if you could switch his logo ala Seige Jetfire style, though!

    Me3! I've been waiting since MP2. My UM needs to have that white Magnus robot cab wearing trailer armor to be worthy the name Masterpiece!

    Id take UltraMag V2 as one whole bot for toon accuracy, and then flip it to the White Op with armor for the toy accurate + version.  Highly doubtful, though.

    I'm really proud of what TT puts out and the work that goes on each release. I love the fact that they cater to what I want. They should be proud of how it makes us collectors feel.

    I don't care what others think. But you know that already.

    Redeco of MP-44 or new mould, either way I’m getting it. I’m hoping for a Nemesis, although if there’s no trailer then I want a better Dr Arkeville.

    Me: Most of my budget is going to travelling next year, and outside of that, my overall spending should be lower than it was this year!

    Takara: Here, have an updated Nemesis Prime!

    Me: ...Dammit.

    I love Prime. But I think I am going to just keep my MP-10 Black Convo. I had got a KO Trailer for him, and he looks amazing. But with the Price raise on figures, even if he doesn't come with as much as 44 did, I just don't think I want another 44 mold. Maybe I am a one off from everyone else. I just want them to stop with the repaints and get on with the MPs we do not own yet.

    Best Regards,
