Transformers Ghostbusters Prime?!?

Recommended Posts

The latest in a long, seemingly unending chain of MP-10 Masterpiece Convoy redecos has surfaced tonight on the TFCLUB变形金刚联盟 Weibo page, and it's none other than the second Transformers Collaborative series entry. MP-10G is the Ghostbusters-themed Optimus Prime Ecto-35 Edition. This would be the "top secret" element that's been hidden on the IDW Ghostbusters/Transformers crossover miniseries connecting cover art since it was originally previewed - understandably, since there's very likely some official reveal event in the planning for this new Masterpiece Prime.

We can't say for sure at this point how many new elements there might be to this release, though we can clearly see that extra parts are present to outfit Roller as a giant ghost trap, and evidently MP-10G comes with its own Slimer figurine, much like Ectotron. What's more, there's conspicuous straps bound to the front panel of the box, and one end is rounded off. The rear panel of the box is sadly not shown, but if we were to guess, there might well be some unlicensed nuclear accelerator detailing back there, leaving the box designed to serve as a wearable proton pack backpack when the toy is removed. Or, if this is meant to debut at San Diego Comic Con - a possibility we really can't rule out at this point - maybe it's even meant to be a backpack while the toy is still inside, helping to spread out the burden of the day's haul.

Well I’m kind of a completist when it comes to Hasbro SDCC Transformers exclusives so if this ends up being one looks like I’ll get it.  If not, probably not.    

Do we know if this will be one of the Hasbro exclusives sold at the Hasbro booth or will it be one of the Hasbro exclusives sold at the Entertainment Earth booth?

Official Details and images

The set includes a 9.5-inch-tall Optimus Prime, who of course transforms into his iconic semi truck. Only in this version, dubbed the Ecto-35, he’s sporting the Ghostbusters logo and motto on the side, with a splash of green slime for good measure. The trailer converts into a ghost-busting base when Optimus is in his robot form, and comes complete with maintenance supplies and a ghost trap. You can even wear the packaging itself like a proton pack, if you need help with some last-minute cosplay.

The MP-10G Optimus Prime Ecto-35 Edition will cost $149.99.

Is that the MP-10 mold? It looks cheap for some reason, like the Power of the Primes Optimus. 

It's not the Prime body. The shiny chest & the  shoulder joints are not from the Power of the Primes figure.

I think I prefer this over the other Ecto Transformer. I really dig that Optimus' trailer is essentially one giant trap.

I’ll be getting this at the Con.  Now I have to decide rather to display it in one of my Transformers display cases or in my Ghostbusters display case.
