Robotkingdom has posted the latest details for MP 10 Masterpiece Convoy Version 2:
MP-10 comes with a human figure that can fit into the driver sit. It is a new mold, smaller figure/trailer than MP-04, but more Japan animate look![/i]
Could this new Masterpiece figure be in-scale with Human Alliance figures? Who could the driver be? Spike? Ginrai? Peter Cullen? Is there possibly a currently unrevealed gimmick for MP Convoy V2?
Damn, I just learned of this figure. Holy shit, a smaller MP Optimus. I'm very conflicted now. $250 is a lot, but will a Hasbro version be complete? I kinda hate how much MP figures have inflated.
I'm pretty sure Spike's at his own scale based on comparing the pic of him in Prime's cab to my MP-01 and HA humans. It looks like the Spike/MP10 ratio is the same as the MP-01/HA ratio…

Pot, this is the kettle. You are black.
Agent-GHQ: dont you have somewhere else to troll?
I don't like the rear wheels and its cover which makes it looks like a tank! Tires appears too thin!!
Hells no man! That would defeat the purpose of MP and the homage to the G1!
Let it be God Ginrai, by all means PLEASE!
This new MP Optimus looks pretty good, but I'm not crazy about the cheating going on with the transformation. And with the disappointment I had with my MP Rodimus I don't see me dropping $250 for this new figure.
Right now one thing is for sure this looks to be the first Masterpiece that I'm going to be waiting on the Hasbro release. Hopefully a 3rd party company will make replacement exhaust stacks for the Hasbro version.
So does this mean he really is Human Alliance scale? Or is Spike here a scale all his own?
I really hope they do, I mean you can't have optimus without Megatron! Or Rodimus without Galvatron!
Woah this thing is accurate as heck! I didn't know it wasn't with the last mp. I love it!
Same heree, I just hope haskaromy decides to make a new MP Megatron, tank style, at the same size…Galvatron too!
As I mentioned much earlier, I will get him for sure, he fits right into my CHUG collection.
People, including at least one Mod, have pointed out it probably means the gun, since the Gun is above it.
I still prefer my MP-01, he just needs his Component Parts, which I hope this new iGear trailer will be released, hopefully when I have money to get it; then I'll have no need for this new Prime w/ a funny back end in cab mode & weird feeling legs.
I am assuming that this actually means the trailer, like Rodimus did. It would make sense, as this is the 'convoy' part and clearly the text has gone through an automated translator.
Thats my thinking. I will hold off on this as its nice, but not extra nice or different enough to pick up at the release price. UM as this though would rock.
Holy shit….the rifle DOES store in the body which was a wish of mine that I didn't think would happen! Also…Hasbro watermarks? Might be on the way to the US sooner than thought!
WIN! Excellent job Mr. Starscream!
yes, he fits into the cab.
Human Alliance. Nice.
Does Spike fit in the cab?
Not sure what to think. The lower legs looks "off".
