Via Hong Kong based online retailer Action Robo, we have great (or bad) news for all of you. We have our first report of the Possible Price And Release Date Of Masterpiece MP-44 Convoy (Optimus Prime) Version 3.
Action Robo on Facebook, has shared a solicitation for the new mold of the upcoming MP-44 Convoy/Optimus Prime, indicating that it is scheduled for release on August, 2019. Two items per case.
Now… the price. The listing indicates not-so-economic 50000 Yen, which means this figure will be around $440. If this comes to be confirmed, this will be the most expensive Masterpiece release to date. As usual, take this with a grain of salt until we get more listings or information.
Update 1: Action Robo, on their original Facebook post, pointed out again that there are 2 items per case for this release. So, there’s a possibility the price would be half of 50000 Yen. Action Robo also commented that they are “still waiting to see if the price is a typo”. Stay tuned to TFW2005 for any new information once it’s available.
Excited? Frustrated? Are you picking this new Optimus Prime anyway? Is the price out of your range? Ready to save money or sell something to afford it? You can now sound off your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
