    He didn't come cheap thou as these were brought in directly from Hasbro Asia Hong Kong and cost the roughly the same in HK$, which was around HKD 1,200 roughly $200! Almost the same price as the Takaratomy MP-10 but in person the blue eyes effect is beautiful! :D

    Congrats! Though HKD 1200 is only about $150. not close to $200 :)  Nice to hear it isn't as expensive as Singapore's supposed SRP of SGD270. Now that's overpriced. Might have some Singapore collectors source from Malaysia if that's the case.

    No offence at all, but I really hate Malaysia right now for having all the cool stuff.

    Kinda makes you wonder why Hasbro USA is taking so long. Are they trying to whip US fans into a frenzy by letting them see other countries getting them first?

    The price scares me away. It is too much for me to handle. I thought the hasbro release will be much cheaper....

    Yeah, I know! At first I was scared off by the price as well...but then I decided that if this is indeed going to be 'a one off' and very limited release of MP-Hasbro Op in Malaysia (they only brought in SIX pieces!) so there and then, I decided to shell out approx RM599.99 for it without hesitation in the end!
