Just curious if there are any sales numbers available on the various MP figures from Hasbro and Takara. It seems to me that they are not profitable figures for the companies even with the higher price tag. In the USA stores had to Discount MP Skywarp in order to unload them which probably means we will not get a US Thundercracker release. The only MP figure I felt was expensive was Takara Grimlock but it still did not keep me from buying it. Even with the USA Grimlock coming out I do not regret getting Takaras version as I believe in supporting the MP line so they will keep it going. I would think an MP version of characters like Bumblebee, Soundwave, Shockwave, Ironhide or Jazz would be easy sales but Takara/Hasbro obviously believe otherwise. Does anyone think it would be more realistic for Takara to release future MPs in limited numbers at a higher price point so they do not have to discount them in order to get collectors to buy them? Maybe there are not enough collectors that would be willing to pay a price like $150-250 for an MP version of Soundwave, Bumblebee or Ironhide even if they were released in limited quantities like 500-1000 pieces.
