This is the highly sought after Japan version featuring an individually numbered box and collector's card, just 1 of 2010 pieces worldwide!
Note: The e-hobby version of this piece will be limited to just 2010 pieces worldwide, this is not the e-hobby edition but supposedly is still individually numbered.
This is a Masterpiece. Its big, its got great color, tight joints. This one has it all, and the price tag to match. Other than MP King Grimlock this might be the best MP out there. If you can get your hands on one it is well worth it.
"Prime and Joy"
This is the first Masterpiece TF I'd ever bought. Actually, I'm not certain if I have the Japan edition or not. Mine has a "C" in front of the number on the card. Anyway, this version captures the Iconic moment from the 1986 movie brilliantly. I really think the robot mode is more suited to the animated series rather than the new MP-10. I think MP-10 looks a lot more like the comic renderings. If you've never owned a Masterpiece, or have only owned the newer Masterpiece figures with less diecast, I highly recommend getting this figure. You won't regret it.
A mint box generally has no noticeable flaws. This doesn't mean it is a C10 box, but that it doesn't have any significant damage to the box. It still may have wear to the window, and a small amount of wear to the box that is noticeable upon close inspection.
A C9 box is still considered very displayable and may have a kink, ding, minor fray to an edge, etc. The box is still case fresh and unopened with factory sealed tape on both sides.
