    Last year at this time, there was already a display for Unicron and Rodimus, but I don't see any display pics with any MP figures.

    So no MP this year, or do they switch up those displays?

    A Hasbro version of MP-10 would be nice.

    It was at that asian convention.

    to the OP: there was at least one empty shelf that said "check back tomorrow after the panel at 2pm" so I'd imagine they're going to reveal something at the panel, then show it in the case later. That's likely to be MP 10, though I've heard rumors of Hasbro doing a thundercracker in the US with the new MP starscream mold.

    Or that shelf is for Airachnid, Black Bee, Dead End, and a bunch of Cyberverse.

    The should do MP Acid Storm since they are so fond of trolling the fandom this year.

    There was no Masterpiece figure in the case, but the Hasbro panel has yet to happen. So, while there's nothing in the case, don't give up on an announcement just yet.

    Botcon is a Hasbro U.S gig. Not Takara.

    Wait until later today. A lot of times they don't show much of the new stuff until after the Hasbro Panel...

    I thought the 2 PM thing was the RTS G2 Prime repaint into Scourge.

    4pm eastern time for panel.
    Then we see if hasbro will be importing an MP this year.
    Depend a lot on if they get retail partner to sell it.
    That could be difficult.

    Well, the rumor is (according to the seibertron podcast from last week) that TRU will have MP-10 prime AND trailer for $100 (though likely with different accessories) and TRU will also get a repaint of the new SS mold as thundercracker.

    Which pisses me off, as I bought the igear one 2 months ago. =/

    It pisses me off more because TRU is such a shitty retailer :lol 

    I bet one of those MPs is TRUs SDCC figure, most likely the Thundercracker.

    I just see a $100 Prime shelfwarming at TRU, that is way out of the price range of anyone but collectors.

    Which means it won't be hard to acquire.

    Thundercracker, though, I'm more worried about. Starscream and Skywarp want their buddy...

    Thundercracker thing should be taken with just a small pinch of salt.

    If it's true, Hasbro MP TC will definitely be getting. Hasbro MP10, depending on what type of accessory I may get it for my son. He'll keep Prime and trailer and I'll take the accessory.
