I have always wanted an Transformers Optimus Prime toys ever since I watched the Transformers animated series when I was little. However, I never got my hand on one, until now. When I say Takara Tomy’s Masterpiece MP-4 Optimus Prime is being re-released complete with the trailer, I was excited. Placed the order on amazon.co.jp and just arrived from Japan recently. Yes this is the Japanese version, a lot of die-cast metal parts are used in this and way better than any version released in the North America in terms of built quality. The package is really heavy, nearly 4kg, the shipping itself from Japan was a whopping ¥6,800.
Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-4 Optimus Prime (タカラトミー トランスフォーマー マスターピース MP-4 コンボイ 完全版). Released on October 2009 with a MSRP of ¥18,000.
Here’s the box, front and back.
