I never got MP-10 Convoy/Optimus, because I had MP-01, and wtf, why bother getting a smaller crappier one?

But now I totally want one to be in scale with my other MPs, and this YOTH reissue is a great idea, a way to find one cheap...

 

but I'd have to paint way too much of it to get a 'normal' Optimus out of it.

If it was just paint the gold to silver, no problem. Instant buy. But it's way more than that.

 

I'm still waiting on the knock-off, improved one that we've seen news and pics of unless some other option comes up.

That KO is coming along nicely.

but the MP figures aren't in scale with eachother, grimy's to short, rodimus is to tall, blah blah, I mean if you listen to most of the height complaints

Admittedly, I haven't checked official heights, but I thought the whole idea of MP-10 was to be in scale with Grimlock, Rodimus, and the Seekers.

 

He's meant to be, but Grimlock is actually supposed to be taller than Optimus.

I know trying to get any sense of scale in the Transformers world is a sure way to madness.

Yeah, there's a cartoon reference scale chart out there, but even in the toon itself it's so all over the place....

 

But yeah, I am trying to have a little Transformers collection that is in scale with each other. At least relative scale. And it's tough. I must be crazy.

Talking to Transformers fans about size and scale is almost impossible. "That looks cool - how big is that?" "It's Voyager size." What the hell does that mean??!!

 

And according to the head designer, after and including the reboot of MP-10, all the Masterpiece toys are meant to scale with each other. Horray!

(MP-10 is certainly meant to scale with Rodimus Prime, but the earlier Grimlock is from a different era of stand-alone MPs.)

 

And if I had known I woulda been on board, because my old MP-01 Convoy is just too damn big now.

This is all in my little world of toys I want to go together, but yeah, to my eyes, too damn big.

My MP-01 Optimus and MP-05 Megatron is in their own separate world... The others even if not perfect in scale works for me...

I'm so fond of my MP-01 though. I mean, he's Convoy, the very first MP. SO much lovely die-cast... I don't think it hurts if he (and Megatron if you got one) are stand-alones among the rest of your collection. My shelves are a jumble of lines and eras anyway.

I see & how do you know I'm not a talented drawer who loves to draw ?.. :) & yes everything done here is a waste of time just like rumors & speculation it does nothing to show us what the actual toy will look like I could photoshop a image from the cartoon into it & get the same result

Until there's a smaller Megatron, I'm sticking with my 20th anniversary ( 1st battle damaged version not the dvd version) and MP05. Aside from that the new 30th voyagers fit in scale with the new MPs also in vehicle and robot modes. I have my Springer and Sandstorm standing beside my Sideswipe and look perfect at a head taller. Blitzwing is shorter than the seekers but still fits in fine since he was originally anyway and his vehicle mode works great with them. Plus he's still taller and bigger than the Autobots I mentioned. These fit in scale better here than towering over the Generations line.

You heard him folks. Keep your rumors and speculation to yourselves. We can only discuss OFFICIAL announcements and KNOWN figures in the Masterpiece line.

lol, that would trim this whole forum down by an easy 75%. fandom forums are for the purpose of speculating.

 

pretty cool, but not diggin the gold.
