Third Party company DNA Design, via their Facebook account, have uploaded images of their newest upgrade kit: DK-27 Upgrade Kit for Masterpiece Movie MPM-12 Optimus Prime.
This kit brings us several replacement and extra parts for the new Bumblebee Movie Masterpiece Optimus Prime:
- New forearms – A complete brand new piece which includes articulated hands and hide the alt mode parts.
- Leg extenders – New longer thighs featuring double knee articulation and better upper movement.
- New head – Featuring light piping for the eyes.
- Shoulder panels – New pieces with a hinge articulation that eliminates the infamous “cat ears” in truck mode.
A very nice upgrade kit set for fans who want to improve their Masterpiece Optimus Prime. This kit is expected for release by January 2022.
Check all the mirrored images on this news post and let us know your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
I think they should do a Rotb prime kit since an official mpm is years away
It would involve a chest panel add on, the same hands but in silver, a different shoulder piece
I like the addons especially adds some length to his body, but at half the price of what I paid almost, it's a pass. I'm not invested enough to care that much about cat-ears.
Wish they would do a kit for SS Galvatron
I got mine from BBTS
DK-27N Limited Edition Upgrade Kit
Where does one preorder this from?
MPM-12N is a standard release figure. It was never intended to be or ever will be a limited run figure. DNA Designs has decided to go with a limited release on this particular upgrade set for some reason. Regardless, I have a preorder for this secured.
And preordered. Loved this kit for the first OP
Is mpm line dead? Is there news for any for 2023-2024???
I imagine a Rotb remould of this prime should be simple and easy cash
Sixshot the six changer
Apologies, I thought the Nemesis Prime figure was a regular release but still I stand with my opinion
martin entero shoro
still waiting on an upgrade kit for legacy armada figures, like come on
Because the base figure itself is a limited run, IIRC. They're not going to produce more kits than Nemesis Primes exist, and not everybody who bought a Nemesis will buy the kit.

Why are they doing a limted run? Just do regular release just to make it easier on everyone because I\'m tired of exclusives and limted runs.
We all saw this coming!
Nemesis Prime version limited edition only 1500 will be made. Expect release date around June this year.

A. I'm looking for something more live action
B. I want to use the DNA parts/hands
I know their is a Ebay axe for MPM12, but I don't know if it will fit on the upgrade kit.
The Magic Square Light of Peace ax works great with the original hands.

So I LOVE my figure with the upgrade, but the guy needs an Axe. Any recommendations that will work with the upgrade kit?
I hope DNA releases a kit for the upcoming Nemesis Prime. I loved how this turned out and installation wasn't that badv
Installed the kit while I was over for dinner at my parents. The pin punch wasn't bad at all. Didn't get a blue paint pen, but it's on my short list, as it sticks out.
Overall, the kit is fantastic. Very happy with my purchase. I don't plan on putting it in truck mode, so I don't have complaints about the truck bed, but it looked bad before. The new thighs make such a crazy difference.
