    Also. TRU Thundercracker isnt getting an Asian release apparently. When you rule out eBay...it narrows your options unfortunately.

    That's good to know as I was kinda holding out for my usual suppliers to get them in and was beginning to wonder why it hadn't happened yet.

    Checked ebay and think I'll just get someone to order it for me.

    TRU.com (not uk) says Hasbro version of MP10 will be out around Oct 15th.

    Personally........... i think that strong lighting makes the deco look very 'plasticty', and not particularly 'masterpiecey'

    Yeah, I pre-ordered it and got it sent to a friends house in the states. Might look into the takara one too as it the TRU was only 99 dollars including shipping.

    I see what you mean re: the lighting/paint job. Not so pretty in close ups :/

    My wallet hates the fact I came here. I've now ordered both the Takara and the TRU one. Just couldn't cancel the TRU order as it was only 99dollars.

    While looking for a Takara OP MP10, I found a TRU Thundercracker. Also bought it :( (but really :D). Cost 120euro delivered.

    *Stands up*
    My name is DBK and I am an addict.


    Edit: They gave me free shipping as I was posting it stateside...whooo .....works out at 90 euro :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,797 ✭✭✭ChopShop


    Another round of musical chairs. If it was a straight repaint then I think it would be mp10 with a suffix?

    See mp11s vs mp14

    They can either release it with the Magnus armour or GTFO....seriously...how many primes do they think we need?????

    If it is Magnus with a trailer/armour set I'll be getting it for sure.

    I just want a Masterpiece '86 movie set. Rodimus, Magnus, Kup, Arcee, Springer, Grimlock, Wheelie, Galvatron, Cyclonus, Scourge, Sharkticon/Quinteson and Wreckgar.

    They've deliberately, repeatedly, teased rough concepts with the armour. If they just dumped a white Prime on us now, it would be counter productive.

    Also see: The 'leak' of MP12 from a Chinese factory maybe a month back, and consider that what ever Mp15 is, it probably won't be out til Feb, or March.

    I'd say Takara have a fair idea what they're doing.

    Now......who wants to guess pricing?

    Mp10 was...... $250, and that was just with a hinged box, albeit with fair detail in it.

    $275? :)

    Unless they release White Prime and display something on the box of the trailer sold separately, MP15-T or something, so that the price won't exceed 300 dollars. Even though you'll probably end up paying 300 dollars but in two payments. Masterpiece collecting is becoming seriously expensive.

    Guess its a coin toss to see which of my kids goes to college :)

    I always wanted a masterpiece Ultra Magnus and Galvatron to pose them in one of my fav images for the marvel comics:

    http://www.oneshallstand.com/articles/target2006/T2006_showdown.jpg

    Always wondered why Magnus was Galvatron's main rival, when it was supposed to be Rodimus (which in turn always made me wonder "Upgrade from a hot sports car to a bloody Winnebago??? You can keep your bloody matrix.")

    (which in turn always made me wonder "Upgrade from a hot sports car to a bloody Winnebago??? You can keep your bloody matrix.")

    On the first paragraph: I suppose because Rodimus was kept relatively hush-hush up to a point, and Magnus spent a large chunk of the movie being chased by Magnus.

    More locally, there was also Target 2006. I seem to remember Hasbro sending out product flyers announcing them as "the new leaders", like they were price point rivals, then kick in the fact that Rodimus got a late release here too. So i think the Magnus/Galvatron thing was more exaggerated here.

    On the second point: I believe Takara's designers said the Hot Rod Camper van thing was meant to represent the transition into maturity.

    Yeah, I remember the back of the comics advertising the two as the new leaders. Then when they came out, they were "city commanders".

    Jaysus, I'd hate to live in a universe were you going from being a "teenager" to a pensioner in 5 seconds. There's maturity and then there's decrepit. And the trailer, when transformed and you put Rodimus on it, reminded me off the scene from Flash Gordon where he's on that hover bike thing. "FLASSH...awh awh....you're not Rodimus Prime.." ..... OH. Hold on, they have the same tshirt going on too...WTF?:p

    Ravage and Rumble in March.


  • Registered Users Posts: 443 ✭✭DBK


    And then Frenzy and Buzzsaw. Or will they drop Buzzsaw and go straight for Ratbat I wonder? Either way, I'm on board.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,797 ✭✭✭ChopShop


    Picture circulating of Frenzy and Buzzsaw.

    RIRFIB!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,797 ✭✭✭ChopShop

    Rumble in red/Frenzy in Blue? So not cartoon accurate like the masterpieces have been? Going with the original carded release (apart from the Buzzsaw/Laserbeak switch)

    An easy pass for me (Though I might end up getting it...I just can't say no sometimes)
