    Hey guys,

    I was looking for a good list of HASBRO ONLY MP Releases in the US. Just domestic.

    Does such a list exist? Looking for name, year of release, store exclusivity (if any) and pics. Also, any upcoming confirmed MP domestic releases. Thanks.

    Whats the difference between the Optimus Prime with the black gun and the 20th DVD version (blue gun)?

    Edit: I think just the battle damage?

    DVD Prime is a much brighter red, blue is a fair bit lighter too

    Also, the 20th has chrome and the DVD Prime has those parts painted silver I believe (someone please confirm or deny this for me, as I only owned that figure for a breif time misb).

    Incidentally, I believe that MP Megatron was carried as a ridiculously low-quantity on-line exclusive item at Wal-Mart. Japanese packaging and all.

    Trying to find proof of this or if I am just going insane. It was a while back.

    You are the first I have ever heard say that.

    The fact that Wal*mart.com offered some MPs online doesn't make them "online exclusives". I know that can be semantics basically, but I think there's a good reason to make the distinction.

    I don't remember seeing Megs available (so I'm not disputing you either), but I do remember seeing both TakaraTomy Skywarp and Thundercracker. Skywarp was up for a little while, but Thundercracker wasn't up for very long at all.

    Yes, thank you for clarifying. Couldn't really think of a better way to put it.

    I'm glad you remember Skywarp and TC, as it means I'm not completely out of my gourd, but I did think they did Megatron as well (and thinking it was ridiculously weird that they did).

    Or not. Whatever. Weird either way, honestly.

    Thanks for that! I was thinking that was the case, but I couldn't remember. :) 

    You're very welcome. And you're right - it was very strange that they offered some of those online. I don't think I would ever consider buying something like that on Wal*mart.com. I bought a TF once and used the Site-To-Store option, and some guys must have played kickball with it before packing it. I can't remember what figure it was, but it was a TF that came on a cardback. I just remember opening the box and thinking how in the world the packaging was damaged so badly. TRU.com isn't much better.

    Just got MP TC from TRU.com. Absolutely zero packaging, just the thing thrown into a bigger box.

    Perfectly intact, mind you, but I can see how it could've gone terribly wrong if anything had happened to that box during shipping.

    Hopefully MP-10 will be fine as well...

    My MP TC had a corner of the cardboard box bashed in. Still not nearly as bad as the HtfD Starscream I ordered.

    I remember when someone posted about it way back when. Walmart was doing an amazon-esque reseller program back then. So there was all kinds of import stuff showing up online there.
