Hasbro MP-10 Possible UK Winter Release

Whilst this is not final confirmation of a UK release of MP-10 Optimus Prime, at least Hasbro UK say that they are hoping to release it this Winter. I emailed them last week and they sent the following vague response!

Thank you for your email.

We are hoping to be able to bring the Masterpiece Optimus Prime in to the Transformers line this winter and if available you will be able to find it major Toy specialist stores. More information will be available in the coming months

May we thank you for contacting Hasbro and if we can be of any further assistance, either now or in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Kind Regards,

Good news. I'd rather get it from the US for cheaper mind. No doubt it'll be another TRU exclusive here too.

Get ready for pricey Toys R Us exclusive! Eh, might be tempted if the is not too outrageous... Far more excited about getting our filthy British mits on MP Sideswipe someday.
Selling my entire collection!!!

Yep definitely interested. Just hoping that $100 doesn't equal 100 like normal with Hasbro!

So anybody still waiting for MP Grimlock's price to be slashed?

The fact the representative doesn't even seem that aware of it being a TRU exclusive doesn't say much.. Roddy and Grimlock both being TRU exclusive in Europe as well.

Or maybe if they think people aren't going to pay 100GBP, or closer to it they just wont bother.

Exact exchange rate (62.00) is impossible, and even at 70-75.00 they're not going to sell that many.

Is there anybody reading who wants to cite the Skywarp incident as some sort of precedent for picking this up at a knock down price?

*IF* I were in TRU UKs shoes, i'd order a small amount and sit on them at full price, or near it, until they're gone. There won't be a better version of it any time soon, and nobody else is going to be selling it.

Unless you want to pay extra for the Takara version that is.

I reckon it's nailed on for 100, hope I'm wrong but I can't see it selling too well at that either....Grimlock and Roddy are both still sat at my local TRU at 60 so I can't see Prime selling well at nearly double that.

I don't think it's impossible, just highly highly unlikely. I've pretty much talked myself into swapping out MP01 for this I just need to see it in person and then it's a case of whether I think it really is worth the price it does come out at. Daft thing is the trailer will most likely never leave the packing.

Sideswipe on the other hand is an instant buy.

I know mate but I don't like owning multiples of any character, I couldn't put the original back in his box and chuck him in the attic. I dunno.... decisions decisions.

You reckon we'll have another Fort Max on our hands in 20 years?
