Masterpiece Optimus - Choices

I have decided to take my collection towards a new path by downsizing and focusing on Masterpiece figures and 3rd party masterpiece scale figures to fill in the voids.

I have a few genuine MP figures already: Hasbro Sunstorm; Hasbro Bee; Tak Rodimus; Tak Tracks; Tak Road Rage; Tak Streak.

I am now looking towards purchasing an MP Optimus Prime. My questions are: which version is best? MP-10? and where is the cheapest place to get him while guaranteeing that he is authentic?

Re: Masterpiece Optimus - Choices

If you're talking MP-10 vs. MP-01, everyone will tell you it's MP-10. MP-01 has the advantage of size (however MPP10 is now an option), the providence of being the first masterpiece, and if you love diecast, he's got that in spades, too. MP-10 just wins out in aesthetics, though, unless you prefer a highly-blocky, more cartoonish look. MP-01 looks like how Optimus was drawn in the cartoon; MP-10 is how we wish he was drawn.

If you're patient and look around a while, you can probably buy MP-01 (or more likely, one of his variants) for 100 or less now, he's come down in value significantly, so owning both might be an option.

The cheapest way to buy transformers that have been out for a while now is to buy on these forums. The best way to ensure your MP-10 isn't a KO is to buy the Hasbro version (lighter blue legs) in packaging, which I believe has never been knocked off.

MP10 is great, aging. As his ranks grow, I find MP10 a little small. the MPP10 looks good, but is huge! MP01 as a stand alone toy is high quailty, but not aesthetically on all fours with other MPs. MP01 is the bot i'd grab in a fire.

Re: Masterpiece Optimus - Choices

I really like the MP10 Hasbro version. I own both the Hasbro and original Takara and feel the lighter colours and blue eyes enhance it a lot. The Takara one is drab by comparison. MP01 is a classic but will look out of place unless on its own.

Re: Masterpiece Optimus - Choices

of course now you uave choices too. mp 01 for gen 1 insiration, mp 0 for modernized optimus, mpp 10 for size and looks, and now gcreation mp scale idw optimus or toyworlds take on optimus for a unique take on the character that captures a bit of everything in its design. ultimately the choice is yours snd you should factor in the megatron choices as well as the mp 05 matches best with mp01, despotron or mightron with mp 10 and some of the upcoming idw inspired mp version 3rd party work with their counterparts. my personal choice was takara mp 10, but i have the mpp 10b nemesis as wellmand consider him on of the best figures i own.

Re: Masterpiece Optimus - Choices

Personally I love my MP01. But I was never able to get the MP10 when it first came out. I ended up with the year of the horse version. And the colors don't strike me as well.

MP 10 takara version was the one that I wanted and the only one I want to keep.

You only have 3 options:
- Hasbro MP-01
- Hasbro MP-10
- Takara MP-10

It's really not much of a choice.
