    I sent an email to Hasbro UK a few weeks ago enquiring about the Masterpiece Thundercracker mold when i got this email from them today:

    Subject: Transformers Masterpiece Thundercracker

    Thank you for your email. Unfortunately we are no longer able to get this item for the UK and it will therefore not be available at Toys r Us. We hope this information has been useful to you.

    Kind regards Sasha Consumer Affairs Advisor

    Not what i wanted to hear :(  Does anyone know if the Hasbro MP Thundercracker will still be released in the US and other countries?

    Glad I bought the iGear Seekers as I knew Hasbro UK couldn't be relied on.

    That's not a good sign for the US release either.

    Not surprised at all.

    Glad I got my Igear one. I'm tired of waiting and the being let down by Has/Tak.

    How can something that was never announced get canceled?

    The lack of any real news led me to believe this thing was either a hoax or a mis-listing for Hasbro MP10...this cancellation news only supports my suspicions.

    Does this mean the new MP optimus Prime will be cancelled too?

    Hasbro UK had a tough decision to make: it was either a strictly hypothetical MP Thundercracker or more Speed Stars.
