    What is the MSRP? Did we get that? I don't think he was ever in the display. Neat that fans have to scour the edges of the Earth for info on products Hasbro needs us to support.

    The disappointments continue. So we're getting a total reissue, which is nice, minus a bunch of parts of the G1 toy. I wonder why they decided to leave off the extra parts.

    I also hope it's not $200.00 otherwise I don't think it will sell as well as they hope.

    With this Trypticon reissue, I think a Titan Wars Trypticon is LESS LIKELY. They would not want the TW and this competing.

    Not known, resellers are selling it for $200, so it'll definitely be cheaper than that at Target.

    What parts are missing? I thought people who got this in asia already said it had everything. It won't be $200, that's BBTS prices, not Target's.

    The
    It appears like the gun is seen clearly in the plastic tray of the boxed picture, so yes it's included. I own a complete G1 version. It's the tiny plastic piece seen just below Full Tilt in Robot Mode in the box.

    Where did you read there are parts missing? It looks pretty complete from what I can see.

    No price yet, but the fact it will be a Target Exclusive means that we're going to see a higher production Number for Hasbro, meaning a lower cost for us. So I'm actually hopefull now it will fall anywhere from $100 to $150. I don't see it costing more than that with a large release.

    From what I can see, he seems to be missing Full Tilt's gun, the Base mold Gun and Missile battery with their connectors and the two connector pieces that let you add Onslaught and Motormaster's base modes to Trypticon's base mold.

    So I stand corrected after downloading the pic and zooming in closer, it does appear to include the pieces I missed earlier.
