For those of you living in Hong Kong and patiently awaiting the release of Masterpiece Thundercracker, the wait is over! Clintfca sighted a stack of MP Thundercrackers at Toys R Us. The price is $699 in Hong Kong Dollars, approximately $90+ in American Dollars.

Happy hunting!

Yep not going to see huge stacks of MP TC and Prime like that here in the states.
Donnie707
Yea, how come we dont get shipments like that? Wtf
McSoundwave
Already have TRU TC and the Takara MP-10, but seeing all of those MP figs stacked like that I can't help but . What a beautiful sight!
transmasterc

I hope now that TC is in Hong Kong, theres a tiny chance of it coming to the UK :L
Timesynch
You'll see stacks of figures like that in a giant pile of awesome in Japan/Asia. In the US, you'll be lucky to see 2 or more of the same figure (except if it's Bee) on the same peg/shelf. XD

So many primes and TC wow
Autovolt 127
Wow I have never seen a figure that came out in America before Hong Kong.
Valkysas
Cool for the hong kong people. He's my favorite of the US released MP Seekers.
xMostWanted559x
In china with how their cost of living is. How can china regular people afford toys at that price?
malcontentman
Man, I hope I can find MP Thundercracker and Prime at TRU here in the states. I think they get their new shipments on Thursdays.

Conversely, aren't Hercules and 3rd party Transformers much cheaper over there?

If so, I'll be happy to do some trading
Grimlockimus
$700 and a mountain of TRU Thundercrackers?
Not sure if in Japan or in Scalper's house.
adconx2
WTF how come they get some many?!!
maximus_73
How come HK got so many ThunderCrackers and Optimus?
ToasterPrime
Is anybody else getting that Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory vibe off that pic?
Exodus
Nice! 90 though? Ouch glad I live in the states....
Bubbah
Hmm, so based off how many Primes they initially received, and now seeing they're getting about the same amount of TC's, it seems logical we're going to get as many Prime's as we did TC's. Which kinda stinks for people hoping there would be alot more Primes here than we saw TC's. Happy hunting for those around HK that wanted to pick this up though!
Motor_Master
Oh to see a display like that in the US.
Tman978
the last time I saw a massive stack of a figure like that was when Armada Unicron showed up at Toys R Us
charsdc2
If MP TC is $700, MP OP must be $1200!

turboedguy
I want the bottom one.^^
Prowl1997
damn i want a shipment like that
optics
Theres... just so many in one spot....
RDprime
Just got my TRU TC today and I'm loving it. Glad there's still a chance for others to get it. Heard US TRU won't be restocking, but still keep looking, if the walmart skywarp is any indication, you'll probably find it somewhere.

The paint apps on this are great. One thing I do want to note, is that mine came with intructions for the old mold. Not sure if that was a mistake, or if others have had the same experience.

I was not aware that the Japanese use the $ symbol for their money as well.

Or is that a mistake?

This is Hong Kong. Hong Kong uses Hong Kong dollars. The conversion rate is about 8 HKD for every USD.
LegendAntihero
looks like they misplaced the decimal point

Hong Kong is in China, not Japan. Hong Kong uses Hong Kong Dollar for currency.

Anyone have the US version with the old seeker mold instruction sheet?
When I got my TC, I had some rouble getting him out of alt mode, mainly the legs ad that is what is the primary difference from the original mold, and to my surprise I had old seeker instructions labeled mp TC from hasbro.
squawkbot
Thundercracker AND MP Prime stacked that high?!?!?! WTF HASBRO?!?!

All of them came with the old instructions. If you go to their website though, you can download/print the correct ones

That's WACK! How do they get so many and the whole Bay Area gets about 10? if that...

Is this rhetorical?

slight market size difference between the Bay and NYC.

The "son of a bitch" moment for me was when I realized that there were more on the shelf behind the TC-Totem. I mean, really, I'm pretty sure there are more in that photo than this whole state got. Friggin New York...

Sucks that they're $90 though in China. Especially because you know somebody's gonna walk into that store, go, "Hey, I made that... sonuvabitch... 700$. I only got paid twenty for the week!"
Janitor
I'm off to HK next month. Knowing my luck they'll all be gone by the time I get there...but they'll hit Canada just in time (and susequently disappear when I return home)!

QFE. Seems like some people are in dire need of some geography lessons.

Wow! Wish the TRUs here in San Antonio had a TF display that nice. Incidentally, this TRU (Times Square, NYC) is the same one where I got my MP TC shipped from via a friend. Guess they have no shortage of TCs there. XD

Just went to the Times Square TRU about an hour ago, and it no longer looks like that. The stack of TCs are about half as high and there the shelf space has been cleared of TCs. The price is also $86.99 now. My guess is that TRU had these TCs shipped elsewhere since they weren't really moving very well in NYC.

Folks, get ready for Masterpiece Optimus, which, by the looks of it, should be dropping in NYC next week.
Naytron
YES! Got my TC, thanks to my cousin for getting it for me from NY.
