View Full Version : Masterpiece Convoy MP-10

I'll keep this short and simple. This is one beautiful figure! Very cartoon accurate in bot mode and his front cab in alt mode looks very much like the real 70's-80's Freightliner cabover truck.

Takara Tomy has out done them selfs with this figure and I foresee many repaints and re-releases much like MP-01. Hopefully and Ultra Magnus repaint with full trailer and armour. There are less gimmicks compare to MP-01. Moving mouth plate, light-up Matrix, arm communicators and wheel suspensions are all missing on the new release.

The $250 cost is a lot and may turn people away from this but having him in hand makes him worth every penny!(for me at least) If MP-10 is too much for you now I would wait for the inevitable Hasbro release which we all know is coming.

Nice review and Thanks for the pics ! I can't wait for mine to arrive ! Regarding the Hasbro release, do you think they'll include the trailer, or without like they did with MP-09 Rodimus Prime ? I'm guessing without, but it sure would be nice to get another, cheaper of course, for display in both modes :primelaugh:

I really really hope Takara will do a scaled-down MP Megatron 2.0. Just make the gun mode perfectly scaled to an authentic Walther P38.

Can you open up the trailer so that we can look at what's inside?

I highly doubt hasbro will release it with a trailer. I think they'll do something like what they did with Rodimus, replacing the trailer with a smaller accessory.

Trailer or not I want a Hasbro version! I don't have room for the trailer anyway.

you can wish as often as you want about that but its never ever going to happen. todays gun laws etc you will never ever get a 1:1 scale actual replica.

EVER I guarantee it.

That's right. Takara can do it in Japan. Because owning a real gun in Japan is as difficult as owning MP Megatron in Australia.

Hows his build quality and is he all plastic?

Man I'm so behind on my collecting and this seems pricey for a smaller prime.

Apparently only his duck feet and Matrix are made of metal.

build/plastic quality is pretty good and he has tight joints. his feet, matrix and a small piece that connects the upper torso/cab to his lower body are die-cast.

I really like the build quality. It's very solid, doesn't have ANY of the issues that Rodimus had.

^thanks for the link!

that's cool that spike can fit in alternity's too!
i also just noticed a nice bonus too.those two new small wall panels that hide the repair drone when the trailer is buttoned up.

Yeah, I noticed that when doing my video of it.

One thing I found hilarious, MP-10 fits inside MP-04's trailer. Yes, this was the first thing I did with him when I got it into vehicle mode for the first time. >.>

I just got this yesterday from Automaton. I immediately compared him to my iGear Faith Leader, and the difference in accuracy and quality is overwhelming ! MP-10 is the most accurate version of G1 Optimus Prime to date, and I can't see it getting any better ! If you're on the fence about this figure, get off and go buy it !

It's an amazing figure :primelaugh:

Love the pics - thanks a lot for those!
It looks like a really good piece, but I don't see any reason to own this if you have any mp01/mp04.

If you don't for sure go get this. With the trailer.

It's WAYYYY nicer than MP-04, and I have both.

It depends. But I think this one is so much more superior. It's not even close. The only thing the other one has over this one is maybe diecast content. Which, if that's important to someone, then this MP-10 is not for them.

I totally agree with this review. What a fantastic figure. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: this toy reignited my love of Transformers. For so long I was really unimpressed with everything Transformers. If this is the direction the MP toys are going, then I don't mind shelling out $250 once every few months. I just hope they do some new characters soon after MP-11 (which I'll also buy.)

That sort of price range used to blow my mind, but now I don't mind paying it (you can blame Macross toys for that). I've decided to stop with these cheap, lower priced toys and just save for the ones I really want. The enjoyment I've had from MP-10 is so, so satisfying. I have him displayed next to the TV, so I can just stare at him when commercials are on.

If that is not love for a figure than I don't know what is. I myself have been looking into getting an MP Optimus that is in scale with the more recent MP's.
