I've sent an e-mail to Hasbro about MP-10:
I contacted Hasbro several months ago regarding the possible release of Masterpiece-10 Optimus Prime here in the UK, the response I received had said that MP-10 would be released in the UK later in the year, that was last year and he was never released.
Just before the year ended Amazon UK had MP-10 up for pre-order at the acceptable price of £35, a price that is great for those of us who refuse to pay scalper prices and are unable to pay over £200 or over £100. That item has sadly been removed from their site and the pre-orders all canceled, basically giving those of us who were hoping to finally be able to buy MP-10 a kick in the teeth after the past several years of being able to find very little in the way of Transformers in the UK due to how much the Bumblebee toys and multiple repaints are churned out and clog the shelves for months on end.
Is Masterpiece-10 Optimus Prime ever going to be released, in full, in the UK at a reasonable price? I'm willing to pay £100 for him, £120 at a push, but I can't afford to pay more than that for him and the same is said for many others. We practically have a plague of Bumblebee's here, but very little of much else and with the cancellation of Masterpiece Thundercracker, another one that was being looked forward to, then the UK Transformers fans are becoming increasingly fed up of being mistreated and clearly hated by Hasbro.
Please, can we know if Masterpiece-10 Optimus Prime is going to finally be released here in the UK and when and the price? Please? We have had to put up with a lot of mistreatment from Hasbro for almost a decade now and many have lost faith in Hasbro, resulting in scalpers profiting by asking disgustingly high prices.
Finally being able to find Masterpiece-10 Optimus Prime here in the UK would go a long way to restoring faith in Hasbro, especially from those of us who have been a fan of the Transformers franchise since the 1980s.
So please, will MP-10 Optimus Prime be released here in the UK or not? Please.
I hope they'll give a reasonable answer with a confirmed and accurate release date, price and more for MP-10 here in the UK, years of having to put up with a plague of Bumblebee and very little else got tiresome years ago.
I would much prefer to be able to find something that's more worthwhile, MP-10 in particular. I refuse to pay scalper prices for him and I refuse to pay over £120 for him. Already at the point of just not bothering with the franchise anymore after the past year+ of nothing but Bumblebee clogging the shelves.
