New Masterpiece Optimus Prime On The Way For 35th Anniversary?
RAC - Thursday, February 22, 2018

From a Japanese hobby magazine via Singapore fan group Planet Iacon, we have an image that seems to show chest and shoulder design art for a new G1-styled Optimus Prime figure. Is this a new Masterpiece version 3.0? Or something else entirely? It'll be a good while before we know, but meanwhile, keep reading to see the image!
If it is a new Masterpiece Optimus that's in line with current MP design philosophies, a fascinating question emerges: how close can they get to the animation model? While the MP-10 and MP-1 designs never strayed far from that there were still some artistic liberties taken. Could MP... let's say MP-45 for sake of argument, get even closer? To be honest, that is basically the only direction we could see taking with a new MP Optimus Prime to make it even halfway necessary. It will probably be months before we see it, maybe even more, so we'll have time to think about what else it could be.

With the rumors of a new MP Optimus Prime that have begun to circulate, we can't help but wonder if the MP-10G Gold Optimus Prime that just popped up on Taobao will be the final release of that oft-recolored, oft knocked-off mold. There's a few good reasons that this could be true, and RAC's going to go over them in this post. Read on!
A recent listing on Taobao offers a possible tip-off of a MP10G Optimus Prime Golden Lagoon Edition coming from Takara Tomy. The listing indicates the MP10G will be out in July for a price of 12,800 JPY ~ 120 USD. No images yet, read on to see the translated details for more info till we know more. Keep in mind, this is not confirmed till we get the official word.
From our forums, we've got another video by chuckdawg1999, this time taking a look at the newly released MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rod. The video serves as a good comparison between this Hot Rod and the original release, really highlighting the significance of the new deco. Plus of course we have a look at the Targetmaster figure itself, originally seen on the US release of Masterpiece Rodimus Prime. You can find the video embedded below; click through to watch now!
Though we don't think anyone could be blamed for confusing this with cab-robot Ultra Magnus, MP-711 Convoy, the Masterpiece Optimus Prime redecoed and sold exclusively by 7 Eleven in Japan is currently being shipped out. Via pcwr_Etchy and Alfes2010 on Twitter, we have some in hand images of the newest member of the MP-10 redeco family. This release doesn't feature any new accessories or mold changes that we know of, but does have a new deco for just about everything, including the Matrix which now looks positively watermelon. You can check out the gallery below to have a look at this figure and see the details of its new deco.
Thanks to Alfes2010, we've got a selection of nice photos of the just-released in Japan Targetmaster Hot Rod Masterpiece figure. The photos shared via Twitter show off MP-40 in a standard overview of the robot and vehicle modes, including weapons attachment options like the new Targetmaster connection on the hood of the car. We also have some side by side shots with the original MP-28 Hot Rod, which serves to demonstrate very effectively the deco changes between releases. We've mirrored a number of these photos, which you can find below!
