    So far I ever saw MPM-10 and MPM-11 only at local Target. MPM-10 was on clearance. I bet it was because MPM-11 arrived too soon.

    I was just going to say, let the wait begin for the clearance price. Got my Ratchet for half off and don't regret it. Wish I would have picked up Starscream when he was $75 though. Missed out on that one.

    I saw Starscream for around $48 and passed. I like the RotF mold MPM better.

    The Movie Masterpieces always seem to sell out before hitting clearance around me. Even the recent re-release of MPM-7 in the Buzzworthy line went away quick.

    Too bad for me as none of the MPM figures appeal to me enough at full MSRP.

    I bought MPM-10 and 11 at full MSRP and I am still regretting those.

    The price on this seems so curious to me. Like this whole time I was led to believe he would be about $160 since every single online retailer has him marked around that. Even the more affordable shops, like show z store. Maybe it\'s just me, but this feels like the longest Hasbro has taken to make an official statement on price, and it\'s only cause he showed up in store. And I feel like I\'ve kept a pretty good eye on updated news for this fella. It just all seems strange.

    Transformed it for the first time this morning (bought while on vacation in Ontario). Good robot mode, fun transformation... but that truck? Ok, the cab is fine minus the cat ears, but the rear section is bad. Shin pads should have been able to rotate inside the legs. Removing them completely (they're on mushroom pegs) already makes the truck look wayyyy better. Hitch section (under the feet) should have been painted too since it's already molded.

    Perfect, I'll wait until it's 75% off and pick it up like I did with Starscream

    Part of me wants it, part of me also wants to wait for DNA Design or Dr.Wu's upgrade set to come out first

    Hopefully I find one; Part of me would wait for clearance but with my luck I doubt I'd ever actually see it. I remember risking that way back for CW G2 Bruticus and regretting it now. Found exactly one of the Buzzworthy Bee 4 pack recently too so I don't feel confident these wouldn't slip before I got to the store somehow.

    I might consider getting it if there's a Upgrade Kit to replace that head.

    If you follow what happened to the other MPMs, then all you have to do now is wait about 2 weeks and this one will start to go on clearance.  I just hope these will start showing up at Ross like the other ones.  Missed the BB one, but got Megs and Ironhide for some great prices last year.

    This is a pass. I hated the Bumblebee movie designs, considering I hate the G1 designs. The only character I\'d be interested in is Brawn, seeing how he doesn\'t have any red or white on him, unlike the rest of the Autobots from BB.
