    Hey guys,

    My mates over at OZformers (Credit to Griffin_of_OZ & Ultra Mackness) have been in consultation with Hasbro AU, of whom have confirmed that in Mid-2013 (June/July) Toys 'R' Us Australia stores will be offering 2 exclusives (Not AU exclusives but retailer), with MP Soundwave & MP Acidstorm! :eek: :cool:

    Guaranteed - Australia is nowhere near luckily enough to have something of such calibre be solely exclusive to us; you blokes in the US & beyond will get it, as I'll bet we'll see them at one of your US Toy Fairs. :wink:

    Yeah, that's...weird. I'll still get it if true, but, yeah, odder choice than Sunstorm.

    So have I. Yet I and others sure as hell want a MP-11 version.

    Considering how cheap they had to go to finally sell Skywarp here in the US, I wouldn't hold your breath for that to get another release here.

    I've walked into my local toys r us here in oz and seen takara's ghost starscream shelf warming for over a year. I'd say these will be the same takara release at the same price. Acid Storm is a weird choice. Not many people are going to buy it.

    No, TRU and Target sold Takara MPs. Not Hasbro. If Hasbro are saying that Australia will get MP Soundwave, then it's pretty obvious that its going to be a Hasbro release.

    Why is it so hard to believe? Hasbro have pushed out a few MPs over the years. Soundwave seems like a no brainer for them to do.

    This is exactly the same as the other thread. It confirms nothing. What it does actually say is TRU Australia will be stocking Masterpiece Soundwave but when you throw into the mix that they actually sell Takara MP's on the shelf this changes things.

    Seriously. I know ppl are really hoping for a release but jumping to conclusions after skim reading a vague email isn't concrete evidence. Until they say that there will specifically be a Hasbro release in an area that doesn't sell Takara figures I'd not get too excited.

    Yeah, and it used the MP-3 Turdscream mold. Which is why a lot of folks passed on it.

    I'm a big Skywarp fan, he's always been my favorite seeker. And I would still love to have a MP fig of him. But you couldn't pay me to own ANY version of MP-3.
