To mark the 35th anniversary, Takara has released a Masterpiece Optimus Prime version 3.0. It is roughly the same size as the previous one at 9.5 inches. It has a trailer and a lot of accessories. It is significantly more cartoon accurate than all the previous ones which makes it less detailed in vehicle mode.It  is VERY expensive at $450. (A lot of people got it for $325 from Amazon Japan as a pre-order.)


Here is a very detailed and long review from one of the biggest TF YouTubers.

Well, since it's October I already started occasionally checking for those Optimus and Megatron figures that have the cel-shade cartoon G1 look... not there so far; actually it just hit me that was the lame Walmart so I should check again at our REAL Walmart 😆....but yeah I did see 2 of Soundwave's cassettes--- Ravage and Rumble in 1 pack....but it was 20 bucks which kinda seemed questionable in price, imo.  I could see paying that for Soundwave himself or any of the other normal-sized characters, but for 2 of the little cassette guys and nothing else?  Ehhhh not so sure about that...perhaps when I have excess cash on me and I'm in more of a spending/collecting mood I'll get that...  the Optimus and Megatron will be snatched up IMMEDIATELY whenever I see them though.  I'd like it if they did all the old characters like that; just make it a whole line--- my priorities would be Skywarp and probably the other jets, DEFINITELY the Insecticon crew, and Blitzwing once again (haha and I already have 2 Blitzwings!  I have the original and that newer big one Ollie's was selling last year; still in package, btw; if they had 2 I would've bought a 2nd one and opened it.)...and Jazz, Shockwave, Galvatron...oooh and Sideswipe and Sunstreaker for sure.
