    I am seeing the picture again, the MP10G is of the current MP10 mold

    And boom goes the dynamite.

    Usually I'm the first to piss and moan about another Optimus Prime but after handling MP-10 last night and experiencing again all of the flaws and limitations of his outdated engineering, I have to agree that a new and improved mold of the guy to reflect the new direction of the Masterpiece line is a must.

    Looks like I'll have to update my signature image soon too. :D

    Haha, I don't doubt it. Although none of my MP-10 molds are going anywhere. They're far from bad figures and each one has a story when I acquired them.

    MP-36 Megatron just had to show up his old rival to the point where Prime felt it necessary to get some work done to compete. :D

    Looking forward to see the finished figure/proto. When is this show when he will be revealed finally?
    Maybe we will just get the figure without the trailer?

    Nice - unless it's the angle of the photo, he seems to have those boot-cut jeans-shaped legs that Sunstreaker and Ironhide have. (I may not be a fan of 'toon simplicity - yay for Cordon to fix my Sunstreaker and all of that) - but I do love the silhouettes and shapes of the newer figures. The only problem is I have too many versions of MP-10 to shift...

    That lower leg looks perfect!! And the more square looking windshield and more proportionate bicep look great too. Looking forward to it!! Optimus.jpg

    Happy days - I’ll be picking up 29+ and a brand new toon accurate Prime it would seem. This is properly exciting stuff!

    Yeah, while MP-10 has the physique of an NFL linebacker, the proportions on this Optimus Prime really remind me of the classic heroic cowboy in his boots and all, complete with Peter Cullen voice (although Ironhide took the country twang :D ).

    Even if this is a Masterpiece, I think I want this. But if it is a Masterpiece, I might have to hunt down MP-36 then... I still would prefer it to be a Voyager :p  :D

    Truck mode will make or break this for me but I'm curious nonetheless.

    I heard an heavy rumor some days ago (source a very well known asian seller): the V3 would be a remolded MP-10... I still hope it's not true :rolleyes:

    Hah, the only way I could see that is if they use the same trailer. That's the only part I could possibly see them keeping, and even that is unlikely.

    I don't think it can be, optimus prime has his Windows at an angle in bot mode, similar to the powermaster optimus prime cab robot, while in alt mode they are straight and square. They have to use fake windows or the alt mode will look wrong. But if they give him the backpack he has in the cartoon, the truck mode grill and windows could be hidden behind that.

    I think it's entirely possible it shares alot of engineering as mp10 does have a good transformation but new shoulders, legs and chest so far? Looks like an ab crunch on the other renders? That's way more than a remould.

    The character badly needs an aesthetic and highly articulated redo and this appears to be just that.
