Takara/Hasbro had a stellar year in 2014 with the likes of Masterpiece Bumblebee, Ultra Magnus (who is sitting dormant until my birthday in February!), Wheeljack, Prowl, Sideswipe… the list goes on. I happened to also snag the Asia reissue MP-10 Optimus Prime as well making it an amazing year for my collection.
Masterpiece Optimus Prime’s MP-10 incarnation is such an amazing figure and, to me, the holy grail of the Materpiece line. He is the best representation of the line so far, the one figure every collector should own. Bumblebee is a fan favorite and is at his best in this mold. Some say his yellow is too orange, but I think it’s very representative of his original color. He’s small and expensive, but worth having in your collection.
MP-22 Ultra Magnus remains in his box until my birthday. I can’t wait to open this guy! The box is massive and heavy. Unfortunately, until we move into a new house, I don’t have the space to really display him.
