Masterpiece 15 to be redeco of MP-10 Optimus Prime – Nemesis Prime, Ultra Magnus, or worse…

MP-15 Masterpiece Nemesis Prime Ultra Magnus

The ad-hoc predictions of the new Masterpiece line being full of Optimus and Starscream repaints may not have been so far off base after all...

Straight outta Compton, we get the first solicitation of our next Masterpiece figure. MP-15, the Prime redeco.

So clearly we have an Optimus Prime silhouette here and the easy choice is a straight repaint of Prime.  This could go many ways, the most likely of which being Nemesis Prime.  Originally it was thought that the new MP-10 design was made in order to accommodate an Ultra Magnus car carrier trailer, something that fans have been begging for since the release of MP-2.  This solicitation is still very new and has been noticeably cropped, so perhaps there is more coming than is pictured.

Ultra Magnus armor connect to MP-10 Optimus Prime

This is a proposed fan-mode for the possible connection to a masterpiece set of Ultra Magnus armor.

My spidey-senses tell me this will be a black repaint version of Black Convoy in the MP-10 mold.  If this premonition comes to pass, the real questions is this: Autobot or Decepticon?  Whatever the answer, the world weeps.

Although this may not be the re-imagined version of Ultra Magnus for the Masterpiece line, it does not exclude the possibility of one coming.  Perhaps another big number like MP-20 will be the armored Magnus reveal?  Seriously though, the remake of Optimus for the Masterpiece line is only excusable if in fact it was done to accommodate Magnus armor.  There is no other non-evil explanation!  It seems every other day I find a new reason to stop collecting… please don’t make this be another.

Botcon 2012 convention exclusive speculation – Black Convoy, Junkions, and more

Black Convoy

Found a digibash I made last year, I think I like this other one I found better

Well now we know what we’re getting in the Botcon 2012 boxset, but that just isn’t enough!!! It’s time to bite your nails and wag your tails because we are now going to wildly speculate on the additional exclusive toys to be offered at this year’s Botcon 2012!!!

Botcon 2012 exclusive junkions

Good or evil? Let's hope for good.

3- Junkion troop builder
Since we seem to get troop builder sets each year, I’m going for broke and assuming we’ll get some new Junkion decos this year. Everyone wants them! Maybe they’ll even be EVIL junkions?!

Shattered Glass Black Ironhide

Ol' Ironhide's gonna pull through nicely.


2- Shattered Glass Evil Ironhide from classics Ironhide

Gotta re-use that mold right?  A black Ironhide would be pretty sweet, and he’s shown up in the comic a time or two.  Or even Ratchet instead?

Black Convoy from Car Robots

Who is this Scourge asshole I keep hearing about?

1- Black Convoy from G2 Optimus Prime
This is so obviously going to happen that I shouldn’t even need to mention it. Will it be shattered Glass or straight up classics? I’m hoping for Classics instead of some weird Shattered Glass spin. There would be so many levels of double-negative that the toy might turn out bright yellow.

The only other speculation I can make at this point are molds that should / could be used.  RTS Jazz, Universe Galvatron, Classics Tankor… these are all molds that haven’t been repurposed by Hasbro yet, except for Galvatron coming out as another version of Galvatron.  There is also the Powerglide mold which Botcon has yet to use, but I’d put my money on Silverbolt before the latter.  And don’t forget about those Cybertronian War for Cybertron molds…

The future is bright, let it shine until 2012!!!!

Hints at Botcon 2012 location?

Arlene Banas as Miss Chicago 1967

'Did you all know Arlene Banas was Miss Chicago 1967? Very lovely!'

Was Botcon’s tweet the other day a hint at a possible location for Botcon 2012? I’m not so sure, but a close friend tipped me off to this possibility. We are both living here though, so of course we are vying for the battleground of Transformers 3 to be the next big Botcon locale. I’ve unsuccessfully predicted Chicago as the Botcon location for two years now though so I am getting a little soft. However, that movie…

Dark of the moon ship in chicago

I can't think of one good reason why they might make the big Transformers convention in Chicago. Not a one.
