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.
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.
