    Wait, so all of these will be sold by Hasbro in the US in some form? I know the new Bee is already up on Hasbro Pulse.

    Does this mean we're English voice clips!?

    I also really hope that Megs and Prime are priced lower than TT. The TT prices are just insane.

    Probably cause the painted version was new and they had shipped over the grey version a bit ago.

    Also, it's nice to see that Hasbro is bringing these over (even though I'm not buying mainline MPs anymore due to toon). I hope that translates to a lower price for BW Megs (but based on Bee 2.0 that doesn't look like it will be the case.....)

    Masterpiece toys by Takara have been sold before in US in the past but with some cosmetic changes & pricing difference.

    Bee 2 does point towards the same MSRPs, but I'm hoping that Hasbro's "cap" is lower. Or perhaps they'll use those Pulse Premium discounts to offer them at reasonable prices without technically changing the MSRP.

    They will not. It’s been known for quite some time.

    ok let me get this straight, Takara Masterpiece Optimus Prime is $560CDN but Magic Squares and Transform Element is $119-$150US?  These two 3rd party products have a more cleaned up rear leg look.  They even got a better looking transformed backpack.  I know they don\'t have voice clips but wow, Takara really messed up here!

    I'm aware, but that's usually far and few in between and in Hasbro packaging. And I don't think any crossed $150. If they're truly going to sell directly BW Megatron and the new Prime that's a surprise.
