This again? Seriously? Okay then, you wait for clearance. Let us know how that works out for you. By the way, you are nuts. $250+ for the Takara, or $100 for the FIRST domestic MP Optimus Prime with a trailer and ALL accessories? This is a no-brainer and MOST of us are VERY pleased.

Hopefully, HasBLO won't choose to listen to things like your post and ruin it for everyone else.

Both MP-02 Ultra Magnus and MP-04 Convoy Perfect Edition were sold at retail (Target) in Australia. And TRU AU has confirmed they'll be stocking MP Optimus Prime.

So here's my story. I frequent my local TRU here in San Diego and have a pretty cool relationship with the staff. They are always holding items for me and will usually call me as soon as they unload a truck at around 7:30am, that may have an item that I have been inquiring about. With that said, about 3 weeks ago I get a call about MP-Thundercracker. Score! Yesterday at 7:30am I got a call to let me know MP-Prime was on hold for me to pick up. Score! Life is good. "Til all are one!" or at least til all have a hook up like mine at a TRU. :BOT:

Agreed. Even when my TRU had one lonely MP Grimlock sitting on the shelf got WEEKS that sucker didn't go on sale. That thing had to have been there for a month and a half before someone finally took pity on him and bought it.

Back when I wasn't interest in MP's... and didn't have much money because I was fresh out of college...

I'll be more than happy if Transformers cost US retail prices here. :grin: $99.90 for MP Prime is a steal compared to the $226.90 Here. :-(

Any idea of the SKU? That's how I found MP Thundercracker. Also any idea if Prime will still be around by Christmas? My sister was going to get this for me as a present and I'd hate for her to have to get it now.

FYI about his smoke stacks, if I remember correctly they do telescope in and out as part of the transformation.

So excited I found this board today. I too like the hunt, but been busy lately and treck to TRU is not always possible. Found a MP Thundercracker by sheer luck. Store told me they were all gone, but I went anyway and grabbed the last one. On a side note I refuse to pay scalper prices on ebay even though the market is so over saturated right now prices have almost leveled off. I saw a few sell for 10 bucks over retail. Tack on ebay and paypal fees, and they are loosing money. Dumb scalpers. If any one wanted to pick up a MP Prime for me I am willing to pay retail plus shipping and tax. Also heading south on Friday and will hopefully get to stop at a TRU on the way. If anyone needs me to look for something let me know and I be happy to help out.

I honestly wouldn't stress too much, I've got a feeling he was either pulling your leg or didn't know. I can't see them only getting 2 per store, even if they short supply him. Odds are he's 2 pieces per case (based on his size), so a single case per store for a whole country seems a bit underwhelming.

There's 1500 TRU stores worldwide, that's 3000 MP OP's, that's the initial order number for a Hasbro retail exclusive.

So that's actually 2 per store.


the question is will they be re-ordering?

Well if we're going off worldwide counts like that, the US & Canada are screwed because Honk Kong already got a LOT more than 2 per store, so they're either dipping into our numbers, or that 1500/3000 number is a bare minimum and they're already planning to far surpass that 3000 number. My guess is we're going to see at least as many as we saw with TC if not more.

Decided to just walk in to my local TRU here in Miami, Florida, and he wasn't on the shelf but I asked the nice lady at the customer service register and they showed 2 in stock for their store as well as all the other local stores.

The manager was nice enough to retrieve the box from the truck and I walked out with MP-10.

So, heads up everyone in Florida and the East Coast....he's here.

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.
