    Since RK will have it mid-july I wonder if we can expect TRU to have it in stores by around then?

    I don't think they've announced it yet, but my guess is $100 CAD, if not USD. But for sure it's going to be cheaper than $180.

    It was rumoured to be at $150 in Australian TRU stores.... Being a limited quantity, I think they may have increased prices for people that are little desperate on finding him cheaper. Very unlike Robotkingdom, unless, this is revised pricing...I will be bummed :(

    Well, the Japanese Retail Price for MP-10 is around $260 so this is actually a pretty good deal if you think about it. It even has all the accessories FROM the Japanese Release of MP-10, which is more than could be said about Grimlock. I think I might buy this guy sometime along the line as an upgrade for Convoy (my Powermaster OP)

    If RK are saying Mid July does that mean August for the US?


    At that price....i think it's mainly going to go to the people who already have MP10, and can't wait for the Hasbro version.


    Hasbro version has brighter blues, slightly lighter red (?), facemask is flat grey. Grey's might be slightly lighter.... interior of trailer isn't painted.
    Roller is blue instead of silver. Axe appears to be a different color too?

    Yeah, I'll be waiting for a domestic release. Even (a hypothetical) £100 would be a bargain compared to this.

    I don't think we've ever had a price confirmed. RK is the first to list a price for the Hasbro version. I wouldn't get my hopes up for $100/£100 (but wouldn't rule it out, either).

    Then again, Kapow also have MP-10 up for a mid-July release (at £200), but Kapow's pictures imply it's the TT version. Hmm...

    This will show up at SDCC for sale with tons on hand , go on TRU.com next week and be in stores late July / Early August where scalpers will buy them all out and eventually all end up on ebay for $250.

    If they're referring to it as MP-10 then it's the TakTom version (Hasbro don't use the Japanese MP numbering).

    Check the listing its the US version they are selling even though they use MP-10 in the listing. The price shown on its card at botcon if i recall from the images was 100 bucks. Robot kingdom and other retailers are essentially scalping this figure.

    Nope. This never happened. No price listed on the card at botcon. No official price has been given yet. Don't make stuff up.

    Why order from RK when it will be at TRU a lot cheaper

    highly doubt it will be over $100 in store but even if its more shipping from RK is killer
