    I thought that hasbro MP Optimus was supposed to come out this year. Yet, we have an Oct release date for MP Thundercracker but nothing for this? What gives?

    I would like to hear that from Hasbro though. I mean, even at the sdcc they didn't have a date on him. I am surprised he wasn't sold at the sdcc tbh. I guess they couldn't have 2 $100 figures there.

    There was a July '12 date on the card. Check the pictures.

    I literally did before making this thread. Didn't see it, but that is good to know. Thanks for the confirmation.

    Yeah there wasn't even a card in the pics. Maybe there was a card at Botcon.

    Damn it. I hope it gets delayed a bit. There's no way I'm going to be able to get that after renovating the Nerd Cave and then spending a ton of money for my birthday.

    Any word on whether this will be coming to Australia or just Asia. Because if the $100 I hear around is for Aus then that is a good price.

    Didn't the initial report of the figure state an official 150 dollar aus price?

    Here it is with a speculative 100 dollar U.S. price mentioned ( that price was never mentioned by Hasbro, just the writer taking creative liberties)

    Why is MP Optimus an Exclusive,I thought it was said on the front page he was suppose to have a wide release.So I guess now since TRU is getting Thundercracker they will also be getting MP Optimus too.That really bites monkey butt.

    Ideally it would be this week, so we can use our 20% off TRU coupons. But more likely it will be available the day after those expire, in which case I will hide one until another 20% coupon comes my way :p

    No, the front page said it was a full release, meaning he'll be coming with all his accessories like the trailer, etc.

    Hey DoctorWho,then why does it say in the pic on that card jtscribe posted it says Transformers Exclusive,usually that means exclusive to some store,and seeing as TRU has gotten the last 3 or 4 Masterpieces it would make sense.But if you look you too will see it.

    I don't mean to come off as rude but I just wish for once Hasbro would tell fans the news about these things,its not that hard.And sorry Doctor I am not mad at you I just want answers thats all.

    I think you need to re-read my post ;) . My point is that it's NOT a wide release and that the front page was talking about the toy's accessories.

    It's a TRU Exclusive. This was announced back at Botcon.
