Hanging on the shelves? Did you not see that MP Thundercracker thread when he was first released? People were going bananas trying to get him. He was selling for over $100 on ebay. He could barely stay in stock on TRU.com. It's only now we see him on the shelves and that's only in some places. He's never on my TRU shelves to this day.
My feedback * My sales thread * My wants

Ordering Masterpiece Prime made me hate TRU, but I suppose I'm going to have to order through them again if I want this Soundwave... Oh well, I suppose terrible service is the price I have to pay for getting a masterpiece at non-scalper prices. Acid Storm is unexpected though. I really would have liked to see an international release of Screamer with the MP11 mold, but I'm happy enough we're getting Soundwave.

Why release Coronation Starscream, Skywarp or another run of MP Prime when you can release the fan favorite Acidstorm .

I'm all for obscure characters but when there is uncertainty to how many of these figures you release, stick with the more common characters.

At least there shouldn't be a huge rush to pick up Acid Storm. On the flip side, I figure I won't have a chance on scoring a MP Soundwave. I wasn't able to get MP Prime, and if he isn't worthy of a second run I can only cringe at how difficult it's going to be to find Soundwave.

Acid Storm......neat.

What we really need however is the female seeker herself. SLIPSTREAM!

She was never in G1 nor had a G1 toy, unfortunately.

I'm in for both but I'm still holding out for a US MP-11 Starscream. Hate to drop $200 if he's going to be a third of the price this summer.
Molon labe.

She could have been one of the random purple Decepticon planes that showed up in those early episodes, I mean that's how we all decided that the random green "rainmaker" was Acid Storm.

Although it would take a lot more than just purple paint to make the MP seeker mold work for a female Transformer.
