More Atmos MP-10 Convoys incoming – End of days

Only three days late with this bombshell – photo by @ldn2hk on instagram

You’d think things like this wouldn’t get past the Transformers fandom, but alas, there’s leaks in the ship. Three days ago, SEVENTY-TWO HOURS, an event in Japan rocked the sneakerhead nation: Atmos Con Vol. 6. Like usually with these shoe / toy crossovers, it happened in Japan and it seems like literally no one is around to figure out any details that can be translated into English.

The only reason I even stumbled upon this was by finding this video recap of the event on the @atmos_tokyo Instagram page which features some quick shots of before un-seen MP-10 shoe redecos. Oy vey.

So let’s do a count of how many of these there are so far:

  • Elephant Convoy – Revealed at Wonderfest 2019
  • Viotech Convoy – Revealed at Wonderfest 2019
  • Duck Camo Convoy – Seen at Wonderfest 2019
  • MP-10ASL (Atmos Safari LeBron Ver.) – released March 2, 2019
  • Tiger Camo Convoy – revealed at Atmos Con Vol. 6 on March 10, 2019
  • Animal Convoy – revealed at Atmos Con Vol. 6 on March 10, 2019

So what does this mean for would be MP-10 completists? Well, the game just got more complicated and you better start saving up! These are going to be some of the most difficult to acquire Transformers of all time. This is my prediction since there’s still zero to almost negative amounts of information on these and they just keep popping up like weeds!

Edit: Originally we incorrectly named Animal Convoy as Tiger Camo Convoy (Yellow) and Tiger Camo Convoy listed as Tiger Camo Convoy (Black).

What to expect from MP-10 and men acting like children

THS 02 Hybrid Style G1 Convoy

Everyone forgets that this amazing motherfucker came AFTER MP-01

It revolts me to no end how so many Transformers fans can stain a good time with their greedy childish bickering and comments about how they have been wronged by the companies that provide them wonderful Transformers toys.  There is a growing mass of upheaval surrounding the revelation of Masterpiece 10 being another Optimus Prime / Convoy.  “We don’t want another Convoy!”  Oh really?

The Masterpiece Prime mold is old, out-dated, blocky and overall unimpressive compared to 100’s of toys that have come out in the past 8 years.  Did it ever occur to you short-sighted twits that the reason they are re-creating the mold is to make a far superior toy?  It wouldn’t take too much given the amazing engineering advances the TakaraTomy designers have made.  Take Hybrid Style G1 Convoy, pictured above.  This is quite easily the best of the best as far as G1 Convoy goes.  There is no comparison!  THIS IS THE MASTERPIECE!  It’s size tends to overshadow it’s awesome-sauce though.  I’m positive that MP-10 will surpass every other Convoy that has come before, even THS-02.

For the love of God, we may have a successful alt-mode AND robot mode and lord’a mercy, only one truck grill! A girl can dream, can’t she?

Now suck it up and wait for the big reveal in the next 2 months.  God I can’t stand even looking around the other TF sites with all this verbal diarrhea!

Shut the fuck up already and be patient.

MP-10 is MP Convoy version 2, just like I said it would be

Famitoy pre-order for MP-10 Convoy Version 2

You can never have enough Convoy!!

Sucks to be a collector these days, don’t it?

Come on, the writing was all over the wall.  I only wish that I had publicly made the prediction months ago when I deciphered the Da Vincitron code.

Masterpiece 10 – Who is it going to be?

Masterpiece Convoy Last Shot

For the last time? Yeah I doubt it

There’s been a lot of hoopla about which character Masterpiece 10 is going to be. We were apparently going to be teased with the identity of MP-10 from the audio clips housed in MP-1L’s pedestal. So far, no one has found any hint that may or may not be lost in translation from the 15 or so phrases from the pedestal.

MP-10 is going ot be large, with a hefty price tag of 22,000 yen, according to Big Bad Toy Store.  This is going to be pretty large, in the vein of MP-4 or MP-9.  Some speculation is a fully armored Ultra Magnus, a Masterpiece Devastator, or even Omega Supreme from left field.

I however, have composed a different theory.  I worry that the true identity of Masterpiece #10 may be much less spectacular than a new Masterpiece Shockwave or Galvatron.  WIth the hoopla building up to the “last shot” of the Masterpiece Prime mold, I am left wondering why it was re-release more than 3 times in the past 18 months in various incarnations.  What was the need to churn out production run after production run of a mold that has surely seen its fair share of time in the sun?

As the Masterpiece line has increased in complexity I have felt that the MP Convoy mold is a bit simplistic and just doesn’t fit in with the aesthetic anymore.  Ever since Starscream, Megatron, Grimlock and now Rodimus Prime, MP Convoy is left looking a bit boxy and clunky, not to mention the ‘cheating’ going on with the double front grill.  Might it be time for an upgrade of the Cybertron Commander to the new realm of Masterpiece figures?  I’m sure greater leaps and bounds can be taken to make an even more grand and regal Masterpiece Optimus Prime mold to be abused by the factories over and over again for another decade.

You can never get enough of me!!

So there you have it.  MP-10 could very well be a brand new updated Optimus Prime mold, leading us into an entirely new realm of Masterpiece figures and the possibility for all of them to be re-imagined once again.  Does this theory hold water?  Just as much as any other one.  I myself would prefer a nice shiney Galvatron figure to stand opposite Rodimus Convoy, but my spidey senses tell me otherwise.  We shall see…
