It’s getting hot up in here! Our gallery for the recent release of MP-38+ Burning Convoy is now online! This is a repaint of MP-38 Optimus Primal, done up in clear red plastic with a fully painted head and gold highlights. The color scheme may look odd but it’s a straight reference to exclusive versions of the original toy in Japan, which was done to celebrate Primal’s appearance in the Beast Wars II animated movie from 1998.
Overall the toy is the same as the original. Plastic feels a tad different than original releases, and tolerances are a bit loose. Clear plastic always feels and handles different and this is the same. It is a sharp piece in hand, strikingly weird and glorious at the same time. Beast mode is pretty straight forward, but the robot mode really gets nuts with a non-red fully painted primal head, featuring his trademark battlemask cut out for his lips, which are now blingy gold. That matched other highlights on his hands and feet. There are also some painted red/pinkish areas to break up the all clear plastic.
Fans of the original Burning Convoy will dig this, it has the same vibe. Anyone looking to add some unique flavor to a shelf will welcome him with open arms.
He’s in stock now and shipping from TFSource!
