    It's not that Hasbro can't sell masterpiece figures in the US, its that selling realistic looking toy guns in the US is a huge headache that would involve dramatically changing the appearance of the toy to the point that it would be pointless to even sell it in the first place.

    Hasbro has the ideal place to sell Masterpiece figures now-- Hasbro Pulse. MPs have also shown up at Targets too.

    ..the MP was a gun, hence my asking about it. If one toy gun was sold, then could sell the other toy gun the same way presumably.

    Hasbro was able to sell that toy Megatron because it was tiny. It was a very small figure and it would never get confused for a real weapon. MP Megatron looks like a real weapon and that's the problem.

    Technically, it didn't. Hasbro never sold either of the MP Megatron figures, nor did they distribute them for Takara in the USA. Some western E-Tailers sold imports, but that's not the same as an actual US release

    Seeing these are leaking now and they seem to be the next mainline what’s the time frame for when we might see reveals?

    Agreed, because so many listings were found, way more than a single wave's worth. Some of them will be revealed, but not all of them will be ready to drop by next month. What would be fun to see is another piece of multi-character battle scene concept art like we saw with Kingdom!

    I still think that was an accident. Especially since it had at least two characters that as far as we know aren't coming anytime soon.
