After looking over the MP-10 I picked up this morning at TRU, I notice a few factory issues and wonder, would you guys go out of your way to exchange with another one if you received MP-10 with these issues:

First pic shows a scratch right out of the box, and second pic shows one of his antennas came a little bent and had an extra piece of plastic I shaved off.

Just wondering if most of you would live with these tiny annoyances or decide that a $100 toy should be perfect and try to find another one to exchange?

Sadly when things are made on an assembly line there tend to be a few... screw ups when it comes to paint defects & excess plastic/residue. If it really bothers you and you can try finding another to swap it with (I seem to recall people saying they did that with MP Rodimus). If it doesn't bother you too much, let it be or take thin layering of paint to it.

Still sucks though.

653569776314 is the number I've been using when calling TRU and as long as you tell them it's the number on the receipt, not the UPC, they'll input it correctly and it will come up.


Thanx! That number worked! But all the stores I called around here do not have it in stock :sad:

I can't notice the bend in his head antennas and the scratch is one of those things that once you see it you can't see it.

So true lol .. I didn't even notice the scratch until a good 10min after opening it, and since then , it really bugs me. I'm gonna try to catch the next local shipment and see if I can exchange it then.

Look at this way, if it peeved you enough to take pictures and post them, then getting a replacement would probably be the best thing for you. Personally, it WOULD bug me enough to pursue it.

Agreed...for $100 it's gonna bother me if I'm not 100% happy with it. I don't think replacing it should be an issue, especially seeing that my local Toys R Us had at least four of Masterpiece Thundercracker on the shelf and I thought he would fly off the shelf too after seeing everyone on the board scrambling to get one before they disappeared, but it looks like as the initial shipments fly off the shelves, these Masterpieces become shelf warmers and shouldn't be too hard to find.

I would think stores will get even more Optimus Prime toys than Thundercracker as he is a more popular character, and seeing as Thundercracker is easy to find I hope I can easily replace my MP-10 before the 30 days is up on my receipt. I'll update this thread if I get a replacement and how it fares out.

If it helps anyone else here are some quality control issues to look for when picking up your MP-10:

I was able to exchange mine today with a batch from another store. This one's a little better. None of them are going to be 100% perfect so I'm happy this one has less issues.

So we've reached the point where spending $100 on an item doesn't guarantee perfect QC. That saddens me greatly.

It has been like that for a while i think. Think about Takara MP9 1st release, that was a $200+ toy.

My MP also has a scratch on the cab which stinks b/c of the high price, but I can live with it. What really gets me are the floppy joints in the ankles and shins. These are design faults that should have been taken care of before production. Anyway I try not to care too much since I consider myself fortuante to have one in my posession. Plus, toys have never been perfect. There are always imperfections. If yo want something close to perfection Takara's first MP 01 is damn close, QC was top notch with those guys. In my opnion it is still the best figure ever.

That's ridiculous! SO angry right now if that's true...I can't even understand why that would be the case. So silly


well it is true, I went on a wild goose chase today for him... after being told that a store had 2 in stock!, and nothing, but I did find some very nice TRU store managers that gave me the inside scoop, every store in my area is only receiving 2, yes only 2! I saw it myself in their system, some were cool enough to show me, some stores showed 2, some stores showed waiting for 2, everything was 2! and some stores had no clue when and if they were getting more... but I called 2 stores in my area that are getting them tonight, so they told me to call as soon as they opened so they could reserve one for me, now that'd be a good bday gift! :grin:

well guys and gals, keep on hunting, he's out! but will you find him?, oh! and it's going for $109.99! I also heard... I dont know if its true... that the TRU in Times Square is going to sell it for $149.99... wow! thanks to the scalpers... :-x

Their pre-order page said the 15th, so most likely on or around that date. Good news is, that's Monday.

Thanks to you! I called as soon as I saw your post and they held the other one for me. I spent 5 hours driving round trip, but I'd rather pay for the gas then put it in a scalper's pocket. Thanks again! :BOWDOWN:

This is Hasbro's version of Takara's MP-10. It is a brand new Masterpiece Optimus Prime mold which is smaller than MP-01 and much less die-cast. He does have the Matrix in his chest but no light up gimmick.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.
