MP-10 (Convoy) comes with a human figure that can fit into the driver seat. It is a new mold, smaller figure/trailer than MP-04, but more Japan animate look!
That was the news that Robot Kingdom has posted on it's listing page for the upcoming Transformers Masterpiece MP-10 Convoy figure.
I have updated both Transformers-Prime.com and Transformers At The Moon with an image gallery and review / synopsis of the latest episode of Transformers Prime, episode 9 Convoy.
The image gallery contains 336 stills taken from the show in high resolution and can be found within the resources section of Transformers-Prime.com and the Cartoon section of Transformers At The Moon. You can find direct links to the galleries here on Transformers-Prime.com, and here on Transformers At The Moon.
Transformers-Prime.com uses a fancybox style image gallery which can often make it easier to view the images. You can also use your keyboard to toggle between the full size and scaled versions of the images by using the up and down cursor keys on your keyboard.
The Hub have sent out a small PR email that contains tow images from episode 9 of Transformers Prime. The "exclusive" images are not really exclusive to anyone as The Hub's mail distribution is quite wide at the moment to draw interest towards the show. The new episode, which will air tomorrow, is called Convoy and the images show Optimus Prime in vehicle mode complete with a trailer. You can view the images below.
Amazon Japan have updated their product listings for both Masterpiece MP-1 Convoy and the Million Publishing Transformers Generations 2010 book with some new images. The images include a first look at the back page of the Generation 2010 book.

Are you one of the only two Transformers fans worldwide who does not already own a Masterpiece Convoy (Optimus Prime) figure? You are? Well you are in luck as TakaraTomy have announced the next Masterpiece figure will be .....MP-1L Masterpiece Convoy - Final Edition. The toy will be released in March 2011, 8 years after the first Masterpiece Convoy toy was released. The toy was first announced via TFSource.com but has since been confirmed by a listing on Bo-Ya.
There is also a rumour that the base the toy comes with will contain a voice chip with a special message by the original G1 Convoy voice actor Genda Tessho, announcing the next Masterpiece figure
We are proud to be able to bring you a full image gallery of our latest Transformers figure, the incredibly long titled Toy Hobby Market exclusive Welcome to Transformers 2010 Masterpiece Convoy Sleep Mode (phew, what a mouthful).
This toy is the first offering in the Welcome to Transformers 2010 commemorative line that will also include a new Unicron figure and Masterpiece Rodimus. The figure were limited to a maximum of 2 per postal address and were only available to Japanese residents. We managed to order four (don't ask) and will have two for sale at Auto Assembly 2010 for £250 each. They will go on sale at somepoint over the weekend on a first come, first served basis. We also have some Unicron's on order that will be coming directly from Toy Hobby Market later in the year, so stay with us for more on those.
Back to Convoy Sleep Mode, one of the first things you will notice is that the toy comes in a rather special packing box that contains not only the Welcome to Transformers 2010 logo on the outside but a special message when you first open the box up. You'll have to take a look at the images to find out what it says, but we suggest that anyone picking up the figure should try to get and keep these boxes as they may well become collectible in the future. The toy itself contains a profile card which tells you which piece number (the figure is limited to 2010 pieces) you own, which is a nice addition.
For those who thought that the toy was just grey you were mistaken. He is actually a very dark red/brown on the chest with a very dark blue head and legs. The gallery contains comparison with the e-Hobby exclusive Convoy Black version, the original Japanese Masterpiece Convoy, MP Ultra Magnus and the Western release 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime figure.
Do remember a while ago there were some images shown of a non-official mini Masterpiece Convoy (Optimus Prime figure? Well now a video of a testshow has been posted on the Chinese video site tudou.com. The video can be slow to load, but you can watch it below.
Part One Ltd have updated the e-Hobby shop with an announcement that they will be taking more orders for the upcoming Transformers Masterpiece Convoy Black version (MP-1B) at 6pm on the 25th December (that's Japanese time for those wondering). Obviously numbers will be limited, but this will give Japanese store and dealers one further chance to increase their orders. The figure will be officially release in Jan 2010.
A new image has been posted on the internet of some new Candy toys being released by Kabaya. The image shows three of the figures as Generation One Convoy, Henkei Convoy and Generation One Star Saber. You can view the image below.
We have updated the Magazine sub-section of our Transformers In The Media area with a new gallery featuring some scans from the October issue of Hyper Hobby Magazine. The images are mirrored from ModXToys where you can find scans of several others pages.
This months issue contains images of the Transformers Alternity Bumblebee prototype, Transformers Device Label Ravage and Tigatron, Transformers Disney Label Halloween Mickey Mouse, Human Alliance Sideswipe from the Transformers: Revenge line, the e-Hobby MP-01b Convoy Black Version, and Transformers Revenge Swerve and Dead End
Japan based fans will be pleased to hear that even though the deadline for ordering an e-Hobby exclusive Masterpiece Convoy Black Version, Part One Ltd have re-opened orders with a special reservation of 50 extra pieces that can be pre-ordered. The new reservation will end at 6pm this Friday in Japan.

eBay seller Heerostoyhamker has listed an interesting auction for what he refers to as a Generation One Optimus Prime prototype testshot.
The figure is actually a testshot, not a prototype, and isn't a Generation One mold rather one of the newer reissues of Convoy. The toy features the head which was designed for the Transformers Music Label Convoy figures.
