    I think the only problem for me is not knowing where I can buy it. If it releases on schedule, then I don't see a problem with them not giving us more updates, tbh.

    If that is true I knew that had to be the case. Not a single thing has been said about mpm-6 since its been revealed. Maybe TRU closing down delayed release?

    That’s what I thought. But now toydojo and TCP both say July. Wasn’t expecting him until September... this guy and Dinobot are gonna kill my wallet this month lol.

    I kinda remember MPM-05 coming out of nowhere a couple months before estimated release as well. Why is the distribution of MPMs so wonky?!?

    I feel like it's because it's Hasbro Asia that's taking the most initiative on this line, because the films were massively popular in China and such. The American retail situation is kinda hamstrung by the loss of TRU currently, and TT is on their own schedule.

    Actually, Takara promotes them more than Hasbro in America does.



    Barricade was like best seller along some SS figures for a while in amazon jp.

    You sure about that its been 31% off since release on amazon j, that's not exactly a best seller.

    Price discounting is not actually a good marker (on amazon at least) of whether or not an item sells well since a lot of items that sell well and are reliably restocked still have great discounts

    Normally stuff in demand, as the supply decreases the discount either shrinks or goes away, he's kept his since release. I think someone mentioned unlike before he didn't sale out at the japanese etailers like MPM -03/04. I think people finding out they were going to be identical now, decreased demand considerably for the Takara version.

    Hasbro USA barely promotes any Transformers outside of the mainline stuff, and especially not store exclusives.
