Today is the day! We finally got a good look at the upcoming MP10 Evangelion Unit-01 Optimus Prime toy! This is awesome! This is one of the craziest Transformers we’ve seen in a while, and are likely to see again! Holy moly! My guess is the price will be around $300 USD for this guy, but let’s hope not. A wide release would be nice.
I’m pretty excited, but I must admit, the color scheme is a little bit strange. I would’ve liked to see some new accessories like a progressive knife, but at least it looks like his right shoulder features a 100% real NERV logo!
One of the biggest surprises here is that this is the FULL ON MP10 toy! It includes all accessories and even a trailer and roller. Spike has apparently been redecoed into something resembling a Nerv Uniformed Employee. Too cool!
So yeah after all the hoopla we finally got a look at the real MP10 Eva Mode toy and I am tickled pink. This is just one of those wacky figures that will be worth gobs and gobs of money in the future, so this collecticon says if you think you might want it, get it now!!!!
PS. This also makes the reissue of MP10 a little more effectual. I wonder if we’ll see OTHER strange redecos of OTHER Masterpiece figures soon…
