Default A third Masterpiece Gen1 Optimus coming?

Rumours are going around for a MP Optimus Prime 3.0.

How many versions does Takara expect us to buy? I already have 20th Anniversary, MP2, MP4, MP10 and MP10b.

(created a separate news topic, as there is a suggestion that it could be a new cartoon styled Optimus to go with the PLUS series now in full swing - if true, maybe cartoon colouring on MP10 didn't look right - and we know that Optimus gets releases several times, making back its money with each version).

I am ok with this. MP-10 is far from cartoon accurate and the + style is where this line has been for some time.

I still want some toy colour MPs of Shockwave and UM.

For me the '+' options are just different and not improvements. I would be pretty reluctant to get an mp-10 '+' but I guess we need to see it. Imo I don't see how it would be better, but that's just me as I don't think slavish devotion to the cartoon model is always a good thing.

If it was completely new...eh still dunno. Still love my MP-10 heaps! There are a couple of minor nitpicks but it is still good!

You take that back! MP2 is Ultra Magnus.

Yeah i clearly remember that since i've got that from a guy here called Megatra...oh i completely forgot his username

Anyway i'm not into this whole cartoon/anime accurate thing so i will just be saving monies for the new MP characters to come (someday...)

As I'm sure Galvatran realised, I was referring to MP2 because it's a reuse of the MP1 mould.

Will reserve judgment until I actually see the improvements... I have both the Takara and Hasbro MP-10's... do I need a minor update? Nope... Red Alert was different... passed on Sideswipe, though.

Pretty sure it is a major update. The link in the OP is an entirely new chest/shoulders even though i think the biggest changes will be in the legs. Little doubt some of the transformation would be similar though.
