MP10 to arrive in UK Toys R Us Stores in Febuary?

I emailed Toys R Us last week regarding the release of Masterpiece Optimus Prime (as Hasbro had stated it was in TRU's hands, and I just got this response).

While the representative 'confirms' that they are expecting delivery in Feburary, take this with a pinch of salt as we've heard similar stories before! Plus, "we are expecting delivery" isn't the same as "it will be on shelves"!

Dear Mr Brown

Thank you for your email. I have spoken to the buyer and she has confirmed that we are expecting a delivery from Hasbro early February of the Prime MP10

I hope this helps

Kind regards

Tina Young

I wonder if he'll end up being easier to find in the UK. I've never actually seen one on the aisle, and I only got mine because I made friends with a TRU employee who held one back for me.

No-one knows but I wouldn't be surprised to see 99.99.

I'd imagine so, I remember seeing rows of Grimlock and Rodimus.....I expect the same here.

Why do people call Hasbro's Masterpiece Optimus "MP-10"? MP-10 is a Takara product. And even if this was part of that MP numbering system, it would be something like MP-10A.

Do you think a pleb in a shop would know the difference or even care? I think ppl use it to describe what they are talking about.
