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.

Also important to note that ALL Masterpieces going forward are going to be in-scale with MP-10. So far, that's MP Soundwave and MP Sideswipe. I'm not sure about MP-11, the remolded version of MP Starscream, which was also released as MP-11S Sunstorm, and Hasbro's MP Thundercracker.

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:

http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-toy-discussion/471088-ultimate-qc-checklist-mp-10-masterpiece-optimus-prime-version-2-a.html


I see alot of thundercrackers still. i figured it would go quick. I never managed to get a starscream and had a hell of a time finding skywarp. I may pick TC up cause i guess its a different mold than SS and SW but not pressed right now. between MP prime the first 3 focs, lazerbeak and cliff jumper chinese exlusives and a few other prime figures my tf budget is maxed for the month. Unless I stumble upon the foc combaticons or prime voyager/rid Ultra magnus, im tapped for a minute.

I see alot of people with issues on MP 10. I think the folding ion cannon is a little crappy. one of his stacks is loose and doesnt want to stay up. the same for the radar dish on the blue command module. didnt g1 command module shoot missles? didnt roller spring launch from g1 as well. besides missing those gimmicks and minor/ easily fixed issues, (nothing i can do about the cannon) mine is in great shape.

i havnt handled much so maybe it has issues im not aware of yet but so far i seem to have less to complain about than everyone else. my mp10 is better quality than my 20th anni mp prime imho. 20th is all sorts of loose all over but i still love him just the same.

Called my local TRU and had em look up the item number, 2 were in route last night. Scooped 1 of the 2 up this afternoon, being an Optimus fan, this was a no brainer.

Anyone see any of these in the NY/NJ/PA tri-State? This isn't even posted on their website yet, unlike the Thundercracker.

None in my area yet, neither where I live or where I work... granted, this weekend was NYCC so if Times Square had them, they'd have sold out fast. Lol. Only time I saw one in person was at con and the vendor had him for $200. I laughed and walked by his booth.
