    Yeah, the MPs are just going to go with an Ark entrance. I’m sure it could be built using cost effective measures, but I’m not trying to build a new clubhouse. I do want to build a Decepticon detention center like in the Golden Lagoon. Some artistic liberties will be taken but I want MP-44 to fit in one of those cells.

    After having the YotH version of MP10 for so long, I had decided I wanted a standard one as my true Masterpiece Optimus. I love the deep colors on the YotH one, and while I customized it by removing the gold chrome, I left the year symbol on the shoulder for my daughter.
    Still, I wanted a regular version for my MP shelf, and she would have my custom for hers (to go with her MP01 and MPM Camaro Bumblebee).
    After looking around for a while, @Sinestro00 offered me one for an awesome price and I jumped on it (thanks again, man!).
    It arrived today, and I am in love again. It may be a little dated and no longer the Optimus Prime for many now that the fantastic MP44 is out, but I am very happy to be able to add this one to my collection.
    Maybe someday I'll get 44, but until then, my new MP10 will be my Optimus Prime.
    Can't wait to take pics tomorrow ar work...

    Did another bit of surgery on an MP that was looking less than fresh. My Hot Rod came with bad chrome out of the box, and over time his visor had snapped in half, and the places his shoulders tab in to the windshield were all cracked. So I ordered a cheap KO on eBay, grabbed some tools, Reprolabels, and superglue then got busy. It was a lot of work, but it was worth it to have him looking nice and new again!

    And as for the KO? This is what's left.. 20191121_195239.jpg

    Better late than never, amiright? Looks a lot better here than he did crammed on the back of one of my DVD shelves :) . Good to see he's getting some love.

    Can someone tell me how much this retailed at collector stores for?

    [​IMG]

    I found one in my basement. I bought it in case they don't make a MP Mirage. But I kind of lost interest because MP is not releasing Ark Autobots quick enough. So I just want to get rid of it and get my money back.

    On related topic, I also found an MP-01 Hasbro release and a MP-05 all still in box. I don't know if people still collect those kind. Just want to reduce space.

    It's great to hear MP-10 still getting some love. I replaced mine with MS-01 but I still have fond memories of him, he was a landmark figure in my collection for sure.

    So in memory of my MP-10 here's some photos I took 4 years ago and almost definately posted in this thread at the time.
