LOL $100 i dont frakin think so. Ive always wanted to get that mold but ill just go on ebay and try & find one for a hell of a lot cheaper than that. Not paying thst much for a repaint. Looks like TRU is getting more shelf warmers, i dont think my local tru has sold even one of the predaking sets or acid storm. they even have a good amount of MP soundwaves.

Probably because everyone who wanted one ordered them online.

Also good luck finding Supreme Starscream for under 100 bucks unless you want a loose one.

Good luck moving those at that price. I might have gone as high as $60, but I wouldn't even need the crown or missile. Maybe if he clearances heavily, maybe $40.

Will TRU be carrying the YotH MP-10 repaint as well? Now THAT might be a shelfwarmer. Optimus Prime with wrong colors is a hard sell for collectors, who are really the only customer for goods at these prices. If I had to chose just ONE of this year's two (so far) Platinum Edition offerings, it would be Starscream by a mile, even if I didn't already have the domestic release of MP-10 arelady.

Seriously? If you only knew how many emails we get at Seibertron.com with people complaining that they can't find one. I haven't seen one in stores since last September. Any chance you could help some fans out by listing letting people know in our Buy/Sell/Trade forum to help move the products that are "shelf warming" that are so highly desired? I bet you you'd make some fans really happy.

2016 is also the 20th anniversary of Beast Wars. It would take a complete moron to miss that opportunity. If that monkey isn't Optimus Primal (or at least some variation), Takara will be rendered to near-Hasbro levels of incompetency.

Why Takara? It's Hasbro Asia who does these toys.

As for who, Optimus Minor's a monkey so he'd work. :P


But in all seriousness, the best choice I could see working would be Optimal Optimus, perhaps colored more G1 Optimus-y than Primal Prime was. ;)
