    120 on Robot Kingdom but shipping is a abit pricey, leading to about the same as TfSource if I'm not mistaken

    Well the Target price should be pretty good I’m guessing. Not sure why it still hasn’t been shown. Unless I missed it.

    I'm hoping it goes up on Pulse. Insta-buy for me if it does.

    Eh don’t worry it’ll pop up elsewhere soon enough. This isn’t FT, there’s going to be PLENTY.

    depends, the seaspray didn't sell well at all back in china, so now it's a $50 figure compared to that $99 tag here, and the only FT toy I am willing to buy.

    Feel free to check the website but TRU Canada, the same place that has been one of the cheapest places to grab MPMs outside of Target, has it listed as $180 CAD. If the US retail price at Target was $170 then something is severely screwed up in their systems.

    Don’t trust online retailers to be the correct retail price suggested by Hasbro. They’ve been substantially upselling MPMs since at least MPM-4 and they’re not likely to stop anytime soon.

    Where? In the original source it was discussed if it was a BMB KO but it's most likely the offcial test model.
    Also the mpm4's test model had the same plastic colors. Third parties don't need to use these kind of prototypes, they always use grey resin models.

    Though i would not be surprised if there was already a KO in the way... (With fixed shoulders, heh)

    I don't give a single f* for a KO if they don't change the arms and the head at least

    In a way, I think people go to far with the criticism in this one
    In another way you are right. Hastak is just being lazy, they don't even make a decent paint. And the fucking size!? They want to save mass production costs huh damn 3rd parties make better figures than this with good paint, and even in a lower price. Hasbro is clearly showing they don't give a f to MPM and I wonder why
    But now he doesn't scale with the Bumblebee'so_O

    You have transcraft and mpm7 for that
    20210428_115828.jpg a80d936b6eb89e40fe2e92b3bf807fa8.jpg
    Mpm is never priorty , it is just a line to be able to do "more" in a wider constraitn budget. Gotta leave room for main MP line.
    And price has many indicator involved. Characte licensing, toy brand licensing. The figure is $130 without shipping to US. Toyworld doesnt have any license , bitch to transform. And lets not talk about those KOs.

    Apparently there is already a KO on the way, but Cheem used the photo when posting it, either as simply reference or cause it is the KO.

    KO MPM-12 Optimus Prime

    If it's true that means they either got the files for him, got an "early" copy that some reviewers did, or are somehow really fucking good reverse engineering it.

    I don’t think so ? The translation of the Weibo post roughly means “Damnnn , Mpm 12 ko already on the way.” Probably just an assumption I guess , since there’s no follow up from the same account yet .

    upload_2021-6-22_20-24-6.png

    I wish MPM7 fare a bit better because in all honest they look quite well together.
