Toy Focus of the Year
Masterpiece 10 Optimus Prime is our Toy Focus for the Year 2012, as quite simply it is an amazing toy.  Like many we were a little reluctant to purchase another Masterpiece Convoy, we thought MP1 was good enough.  However once you have MP10 in your hands MP1 looks dated and pretty poor.  MP10 is, in my opinion, in the top 5 best Transformers toys of all times.  It looks great, it transforms great and it's playable.  The perfect Transformers toy
