    Do you have a way to dig around with your distributers to figure out what the "extra" is? I'm assuming its the same stand that came out with the Takara MP10 reissue...

    Haha, yeah, but I think the fact that the Hasbro one hasn't be reissued before (while Grimlock's seen more than any other MP) and just has so much more going for it in terms of value due to the accessories, people are welcoming the price bump. I would be questioning whether to get another one for $200+ but sub-$200, I'm on it!

    Great news, Eddie! So your price definitely beats BBTS for October delivery and is only $3 less than BBTS' November delivery. Seems like a no-brainer to me?

    lol I did the same thing back when MP-10 was first announced. I couldn't get rid of my MP-04 fast enough.

    Yes, finally able to order an MP-10 Optimus Prime. Glad I waited on getting the YOTH hoping they reissue this figure. So excited to finally own this.:dj

    Confused..
    BBTS is $159+free shipping (Nov)
    or $179+free shipping for Oct
    ToyDojo is $175+free shipping (Oct)

    What do you mean $3 than Nov delivery?

    I need a freaking notebook to keep track of all these preorders!! Silverstreak, Wheeljack, UltraMagnus, now MP-10..

    I would like to order from ToyDojo (my Ultra Mag pre-order is there).. but not really interested in paying more for Oct delivery

    I'm pretty sure shipping is not free for BBTS. Last I checked it was about $12 shipped for MP-10. That puts Toy Dojo at $3 more to get it earlier.

    TFSource now has it at $159.99 with free shipping. I've never ordered from them, but that's a solid price.

    I made a new folder in my Gmail solely for TF orders. It helps a lot!

    I'm in. I never saw MP-10 at any TRU and was miffed because I was looking. Ideally, I'd like to get one at the original price, but since they're not at TRU anymore, I don't mind paying a little mark up, but the going 300-400$ is just fucking ridiculous. So yeah, I'm glad to get one with a minimal $40 mark up.

    Ordered. Never saw this version in stores, and at that price, can't pass it up. The slight coloring differences will compliment my Takara MP-10 very well.

    I still have my MP-04. I have the first MP-10 TT Version. Thought the back Panel broke, so I bought a KO and fixed it. And I am now going to order this one. (Done got it on Pre-Order)

    I don't see why people don't like the MP-01 - MP-04. I still think he is a great figure and goes to show from a collecting stand point, how things change in a few short years. I won't ever get rid of mine. That is just my thought, I guess.

    Best Regards,

    Looks like I will be going with TFSource as it qualifies for free shipping

    Edit - Do TFSource or BBTS charge sales tax?

    Quick poll: How many here have multiple copies of this? Or, have one already and are planning to get this as well?

    Like I said. I have the Original TT MP-10. I wanted this one also. But never seen it in the TRU here. I am also getting the second run of the KO MP-10.

    A guy I know from an online store got one two or three days ago. He will be selling them. And outside of the paint apps. He is identical to the TT MP-10. They fixed everything. Gaps. Paint. Size. Color of the Plastics. Though I did notice from what he showed me, it is a lot more paint then just red plastic.

    So I am going to have the KO in Robot mode, the original in truck mode, and then this one, which will stay in the box and just displayed.

    Some pix if anyone wants to see.

    Pre-ordered on TFSource to take advantage of the free shipping. Glad to finally be getting this guy for a reasonable enough price. I wonder what the mystery premium item is going to be?

    Ok, now I see the mistake. I was looking at TFSource, but paik had BBTS on my mind.. so I was crossing BBTS and TFSource.. since both had the same 159 price. But as you say, TFSource has free shipping. That's where my preorder is now :)
