Masterpiece Optimus Prime out in TRUs in Hong Kong

Masterpiece Optimus Prime out in Hong Kong, picked one up yesterday









Totally slipped my mind to take a picture of their display, but they're really pushing it, had about 30-40 MP Primes on mass display at a TRU near where I stayed there.

edit:
Took a picture of the bottom. Noticed this might not be the exact US box, since it has Hasbro Australia printed at the bottom. Also, made in Vietnam? Wow, didn't realize Hasbro was making toys in Vietnam and not in China already.



Does seem like other areas in Asia might be getting theirs soon if the sticker is any indication.
Sig pictures are to be no larger than 40KB in file size and should be no larger than 300 pixels in height and 500 pixels wide - 2005 Staff

That's a huge display for a mp fig

I know! I heard they released it so I was looking around at the shelves, thinking, where the heck are they, hope they haven't sold out yet and then turning out into the main aisle..BAM..there it was, a huge pile of MPs!

Anyway, if anyone wants pictures of a particular section of the packaging, I'd be happy to post them.

In fairness though, as far as I know, this TRU branch is one of their most popular ones. Located in a popular tourist as well as local shopping area. Also, I dunno, but you can probably have one shipped cheaper Patience though, since the US will be getting it at a much lower price.

Thanks for the heads-up! I read on AC-Toys ( I can't access AC-Toys now) that there is a QC issues with regards to his gray part of his headpiece (a slight chip) above his eyes. Apparently there are two batches: 1 batch made in China while the other made in Vietnam, and his was made in China. Any issues with yours? thanks again Intending to get mine as well when it hits my country too
