That might be a bit difficult, since there isn't a version of this Prime not including a trailer... but maybe you could have some luck selling to a customizer? If nothing else, maybe there will be someone wanting to paint one black to have a G2 trailer...

I imagine it's too small to work with the original MP OP, or there'd definitely be a market there.

Man this toy is gonna be a pain to get.. Paid 80 for TRU exclusive rodimus, had to constantly check back and forth to get amazon exclusive unicron ... I don't have a TRU near me only close by one is in vegas .. And no doubt there are collectors there... If I somehow can't get it can someone pick up an extra for me and pm me ill buy it off you, for a reasonable price of course , thanks!

That is when it's online you know...we get word it's available then it sells out then later it's available again then it sells out...you all remember the pattern right? :BANG_HEAD: :VEHI:

I do, hoping to hit it in that gap before it re-sells out

As impressive as MP-10 look's I am going to pass and here's why. I already have MP-01 Optimus Prime and he is more then good enough for me. Second I just dont care for the height they made him which to me is to short and to top it off they left out many of the features that to me made MP-01 so unique and more of a collectible. Also I dont like the fact that MP-10 is pretty much all plastic, I like diecast in my figures and I think MP's should have more diecast. But thats just me. This is nice though for the ones that may have missed out on the other MP Primes and I am glad that they have the chance to get one. Happy hunting when MP-10 comes out guys and I hope everyone that wants one gets one.

If there are ever repaints done of this mold... which wouldn't surprise me... I would be surprised if they ever made it to U.S. retail. (Possibly with the exception of if they do an Ultra Magnus repaint with a proper trailer to go with him.)

Of course, what do I know? I'm still quite surprised we're getting any version of a complete MP-10 domestically! I tell ya, I was that close to reluctantly plunking down the dough for the Takara version myself when this was anounced.

Even if Nemesis prime made it to US market without the trailer, I'll get him if he's a Decepticon!

Anyone heard anything else on when these might hit stores? Also, has it been confirmed they are a TRU exclusive? I remember reading a little while ago that there was a possibility of a mass retail release, but I am afraid that is too good to be true.
