    so it has been a while since this figure came out in japan.... so does anyone know if MP-10 will get a us release or not? i thought we would have heard something by now, and being i dont transform my takara transformers i want a prime in truck mode to go with my otherwise useless trailer.

    so let me know if anyone has some concrete info...

    If there were any concrete info, we would have all heard about it by now. It just seems a logical certainty that it will happen eventually. Let's get this year a more substantial head of steam going and I'm sure we'll see something sooner or later.

    The last couple have been end of July first of August. But with two molds to get released maybe it'll be sooner.

    I wouldn't count on it. ROTF Buster Prime and DOTM Striker Prime also seem like no brainer domestic releases on the surface, but, we're not likely to see either one. It could be possible without his trailer, but I just don't think it's a sure thing.

    I don't know if you can really use those two as examples seeing how we basically already have two versions of that mold (ROTF,HFTD). But MP 10 being a new masterpiece mold and its Optimus I can't see the U.S. not getting it

    Im predicting that it gonna be a tru exclusive and it gonna come out this summer. But since it Optimus I won't be surprised if it released at mass retail.

    As others have stated if there are plans to release this year it will more than likely be announced at Toyfair or botcon. I think its likely to happen since we have had US mp releases for the last 3 years. It also seems to me that the TRU released MPs of Grimlock and Rodimus sold pretty well so i imagine an Optimus figure will command some nice sales numbers.

    It is Optimus Prime, it's almost assured to be released at some point. MP-10 only came out in the Fall, and it's not like Hasbro has announced anything of substance since then. I honestly wouldn't even start to get curious about it unless botcon comes and goes without an announcement.

    However Hasbro things when they want, and that means releasing things when they think they will make the most money. There is no prescribed timeline, every one is different.

    But it will happen. MP-11 I wouldn't be so sure about, but MP-10.. yeah. Just a matter of time.

    Well I hope they do considering I didn't get the original masterpiece prime since I didn't like him

    I hope so. I've never been able to pick up a MP Prime, so it'd be awesome have one.

    I'd like a US version. It would be cheaper than the Takara version and I can use it to replace my current MP 10. It's head is splitting apart at the seams.

    Figure only came out 4 months ago in Japan. It'll be a while before / if we hear anything.

    As of this date it's not even out four months.

    Edit: Powered Convoy beat me to the punch.



    And that's why they make you wait, because the Hasbro version is almost definitely going to be better value for money.

    Soooo torn. I want this to happen, but without a shit-tastic cheap ass deco like rodimus had, and without short stacks... I want this mold but just can't pay those prices... just too much for something not vintage.
