Via PrimevsPrime on Youtube we have our first in-hand images of the new Transformers Masterpiece Movie MPM-12 Optimus Prime (Bumblebee Movie).
This new Masterpiece mold looks like a great improvement in movie-accuracy compared to MPM-07 Bumblebee. Optimus Prime looks very detailed in robot mode featuring and opening chest with a die-cast Matrix, but it seems some compromises in the truck mode were made to keep a movie-accurate robot mode. Alt mode is compatible with MP-44 G1 Optimus Prime trailer. We also ahve comparison shots next to the Studio Series Voyager Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and other Masterpiece toys. This figure is scheduled for release in October 2021 for the Japanese market and it will be sold as a Target exclusive in the US in August 2021.
