I finally caved in and got a second version of the MP-10 mold during Big Bad Toy Store’s Black Friday sale Shattered Glass Optimus Prime.
I like how this mold can store the rifle in the robot’s back hump but, it seems to me, that this version of Prime would be a “shoot first” kind of bot.
Subjugation is the destiny of all sentient beings!
I was surprised to find out that this includes the trailer, I initially expected it to be more like MP-10B which does not. I don’t mind either way since I don’t have enough room to display the trailer so it will live in the box.
Originally introduced for Botcon 2008, Shattered Glass is a “Mirror Mirror” version of the Transformers populated with Heroic Decepticons and Evil Autobots. The concept returned with figures in several other Botcons, the Subscription Service and an e-Hobby exclusive before becoming a Masterpiece.
Well, sort of, here is Shattered Glass Optimus Prime with Hasbro’s version of MP-10 – Not-Broken Glass Optimus Prime.
The only thing that I dislike about this purchase is how much I now want a copy of MP-10B Black Convoy, aka Nemesis Prime. I’ve been leaning towards it ever since I realized how bare my Masterpiece Decepticon shelf would be without third-party support. But, now that I’ve gotten a taste of evil Optimus Prime, it seems wrong not to have the full trio.
