We have some potentially great news for our UK viewers, a listing on AmazonUK has popped up for Transformers Masterpiece Optimus Prime. No image at the moment, but based on the description it's almost certainly MP-10. The figure is priced at the amazingly low £34.99 and scheduled to ship in 4 to 5 weeks. It seems too good to be true, so order at your own risk. The link and description can be found below along with an image of the figure from our BotCon 2012 coverage.

i just placed my order - hopefully your surmise turns out to be correct. I was never gonna get this one cos i already have mp-01, but since i have no trailer and this one has that incredible price (surely some mistake!) just did a quick check on ebay and japanese imports are price at about £170!

I think I'll be all OP'ed out... well besides voyager classics and the original g1 :D

Superb! Thanks for the tip, and... ordered!
Now hoping Amazon can actually come through with these orders!

By the way, this offer is also available to people in other countries in Europe (including the free shipping!) so it's not just good news for UK based TF-fans!

I purchased the original MP-10 a few days ago and I am waiting for it to be delivered. I prefer the colours of MP-10 over the TRU release, but for this price... 8-}

The default shipping option (to the Netherlands) does indeed cost the £7 you mention. However, you should choose the super-saver shipping, which is free (orders over £25 qualify). If I were you, I'd place another order and cancel your first one.

Whilst I have placed an order, this has *got* to be a mistake. The original MP Prime was £60 here and this retails for $130 stateside, given Hasbros £1=$1 exchange rate, I'd wager that somebody has missed a "1" off the front of that price.

Still, got to be in it to win it and I would LOVE to be proved wrong...

i just ordered total is 34.19 EUROS which turns out to be $45 bucks shipped? This has got to be a mistake? Also i live in the US and it only cost 5 EURO to ship to NYC? I never thought you can order from Amazon from another country. but order is placed. whats also weird is that list price was 34.99 euros and when i checked out it was only 29 euros and 5 Euros shipping. this all seems too good to be true. I have a feeling there will be cancel orders.. =/

I have a feeling our orders will be canceled. the price is just way to cheap.. something has to be wrong. But its worth the risk. I'll keep this updated if they decide to cancel my order.

Amazon.co.uk Product Description does include this: Model Number A0782, which is the number on the front of the box, under the Ages 5+ label, so maybe, just maybe.....
I'm thinking there's definitely a price adjustment or shipping adjustment coming, but just in case I ordered mine today, as well.

Ordered!

To think I was annoyed that I couldn't get one in the US a couple of weeks back and now this, Has to be a mistake but if its not or they honour the price for pre orders then Woo Hoo!

I order books from Amazon.co.uk all the time.

I'm hoping these aren't cancelled. $55.15 shipped (at current exchange rates) is the best price ever, especially since finding these stateside or online is nigh impossible.

I ordered one, and the funniest thing happened:

First, I was pleased they didn't reject my shipping to NYC.

Second, the price went down to 29.16 + 4.95 packaging.

My order total = 34.11 pounds!!!

Amazing!!!
