Infected early on with the zombie virus, Penny has been cared for and fed by her unconditionally loving father.

TRANSFORMERS Masterpiece Acidstorm from Hasbro®
Little is known about the mysterious air warrior Acid Storm. He serves quietly and anonymously under his commander Starscream and Lord Megatron. He speaks rarely, but when he does, it is in passionate defense of the Deception cause. His oratory skill is so great that those few who have heard him speak believe he has a great future among the Deceptions. Acid Storm has no ambition other than to soar high in the sky, seeding clouds with deadly corrosive rain that gives him his name. This sneak peek item can fly home with Conventioneers for $75.

TRANSFORMERS Masterpiece Soundwave from Hasbro®
Behind his impassive expression, Soundwave is as cold and ruthless as they come. He cares nothing for right or wrong, for the advancement of a cause, or the welfare of his fellow Deceptions. He cares about information, and he acquires it any way he can. He spies on everyone, from the lowliest Autobot scout to Megatron himself. He hoards information the way a miser hoards gold, sharing it sparingly, if at all. No one knows what the true purpose behind his obsessive data collection is, but all fear him for the secrets he keeps. This first look item can be picked up by Comic-Con goers for $120.


World War Z Gerry Lane from Jazwares®, Inc.
World War Z revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane, who traverses the world in a race against time to stop a pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. Fans can recreate the intense action of World War Z with the new 6-inch Gerry Lane figure from Jazwares for $15. The figure is articulated and includes accessories.
All Toys“R”Us San Diego Comic-Con exclusive items are limited editions and will be available on a first-come, first served basis, while supplies last.

"...available for purchase at SDCC 2012!" WOO!!! All I need is a time machine and ticket to Comic-Con! :lol: The question is, which one will be harder to score? :-?

Dang, so wish I could get to SDCC. :sad: Anyone else as pissed off as me that BOTH big TF conventions happen in San Diego? And they're a few weeks apart... WTF? Seriously uncool, bro. :BLACKEYE:

Alright, what are the honest to God chances of purchasing the figure on the website?

And how early do I have to wake up to get it?

The real question is how late should you stay up? Seriously I recall seeing MP OP available on the site a few times before he was long gone. If you don't have to be the first on your block too own one you should be able to find him online or in store with some patience and leg work. If all else failed wait until eBay is flooded and buy at a 30+ mark up.

Being a gambling man I would put all my money on Soundwave to be the hottest and most sought after of the two. :VEHI:

Acid Storm gets the MP-01 slot, huh? Called it! :lol: Because it made sense to reboot something with an original character. :CON:

In all cases, I need to see if I can afford to go, and if it is not too late to get a day pass. Because atop of one possible meet-up, I would actually like to see what else Hasbro is going to debut. Maybe even ask them about the idea of reissuing the remaining Headmasters and Targetmasters. :-B

Not to pat myself on the back so hard, but I predicted that MP Soundwave as a SDCC 2013 exclusive spot on.

WTF is up with this new packaging for the Masterpiece TF's? I liked the window boxing they used for Grimlock and Rodimus Prime and previous others and as I dont open my MP's this is a real let down for me.

Well... It appears that not everybody shared your view when it came to the packaging. So unless this is an exclusive bit, state-side, Hasbro seems to have decided to go with a more international approach with this. ^^;

Oh, and I am wondering how they plan to handle the Asia release of "Masterpiece" Grimlock.
