    I know this is a bit of a long shot, but I would like to get an MP-10 Optimus Prime. Either Takara or TRU is fine.

    I can do $200.
    I know that's a long shot, but I also know there is someone out there willing to sell one for that.

    It doesn't have to be MIB.
    I would prefer a complete one, but we could negotiate incomplete or perhaps even a broken one.

    Also, I have the Platinum Edition MP-10 Optimus Prime for sale for $130. (Retail Price)
    I can send pics. He is MIB.

    I also have an MP-01 Optimus Prime (Takara) that I'll have to sell to help me afford the MP-10. If you'd be interested in that, let me know.

    Here is hoping!
    Thanks!

    If you can wait what would be nearly a year, Takara just announced that they will be rereleasing mp10. You could get one from animeexports for approx 150ish.

    no prices announced though, it's speculation in that regard.

    Oh, man! Yeah! I've waited this long, I can wait a bit longer! That would be GREAT!!!

    A "friend" of mine picked up a TRU one for me, put it on layaway. I waited almost a year before he finally got it off layaway, but then, before I could pay him for it, someone offered him more for it and so he sold it on me.

    Then another guy told me he'd sell me the Takara for $180 (loose). But AFTER I paid, he got offered a higher price, and took that instead. He did refund me, but still a creepy thing to do!

    So them reissuing it is great news as I just can't afford current prices. I had a hunch they might do this at some point.

    Thanks for letting me know. In case I can't find one in the meantime, at least there will be that! :)
