    Just bought one on ebay today. Someone had been selling a bunch without boxes or instructions for $50. He said they're not ko but are originals, though a little different from the boxed ones. They had been getting good feedback and the seller had mainly good feedback, and he replied to the few neutral and negative feedbacks. So I think it's legit and for $50 I'm willing to take the chance.

    Any confirmed differences to the Hasbro version, or exactly the same?

    How soon do you think/estimate TFSource could finally get their stock for the Takara listing?

    May is my guess? It’s out this month in Japan. So if stock is sent out this week, depends on boats. You can buy it sooner maybe on Amazon Japan if they still export it

    I honestly hope Ironhide gets better treatment in the distribution, and not a "available the same stores as MPM3-5 but TRU"

    Barricade was affected due the TRU closing, i do hope we get a further information from HasTak for a solid place to purchase.

    Mine has been on pre-order since Valentine's Day, and TFSource shows expected arrival for April.

    I'm telling myself it should become available by this month's end, just to keep my own hopes in check.

    Sounds realistic. Don’t see why not. It’s released in Japan on April 21st. If they get a different supplier, possible. If you can cancel with a refund and order on amazon on Japan I can see it he very realistic to receive it before April 30th.

    Curious about the differences in paint apps between Hasbro and Takara version (if any). Also very surprised and saddened to see MPM-5 preorder slots never reached "Order Stop" on HLJ, meaning that demand wasn't enough this time it seems for it to sell out as quickly as MPM-4 and MPM-4 did

    I decided to preorder the toy from Amazon Japan, since there's no telling if and when it'll be available in the US. For $83 shipped, it's about the same price as Bumblebee was.

    They're as authentic as you're willing to believe.

    Toyarena had Barricade around 2 months ago at their store and on Ebay. I guess since they are in the west coast they got their stock quicker. Or, he has connections to get them quicker.

    That was Hasbro Asia’s release. It release around 2 months ago. So far for all MPM releases japan gets a later release through Takara and not Hasbro Asia.

    People wait for different paint apps and supposed better quality control.

    If you're waiting for better quality, don't bother with it. Hasbro's Barricade is flawless and way better than Bee and Prime.
