Motto: "A man who wants nothing is invincible."
It appears that Toys R us Australia will be selling Hasbro MP-06 Bluestreak and TakaraTomy MP-24 Starsaber online and likely in store. Not only that, their website has given us our first glimpse at MP-06 in box! It follows the same styling of previous Masterpieces released exclusively through Toys R us. Though if the back of the box is any indication it looks like he won't have the shoulder cannons, which were Amazon exclusives with TakaraTomy's version. They come with the hefty price tags of $129.99 AU (Bluestreak) and $299.99 AU (Starsaber) so be warned. Keep scrolling to see the images and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your Transformers News!

So pretty much identical to the Takara release, a la Prowl? I might bite, but I already own Prowl. Would rather get Sideswipe first before dipping on the Datsun mold again.

No kidding! At the current exchange rate they can get the Japanese Star Saber at the 18,000jpy retail price for under $200AUD, but with heavy online discounts for less than half of the AU TRU price. Crazy stuff.

Been there, done that, will continue to do it.

That being said ... prices haven't fluctuated too much over the years. When MP-02 was released through Target he was $120.

Similar sized figure from earliert his year ...

Oh you can still complain. The minimum wage in Australia is literally more than twice that of the United States ($7.25 in the US vs. $16 in AU). They're making twice what we are, so if you half the price of those releases, it is actually not that bad.

Let's see ... $7.25US = $9.53AUD. Not quite half.

Now let's take a look at the price of TF's shall we? Even at the raised TRU US rate of $19.99US a combiner limb translates to $26.28AU. Still a bit lower than the $29.99AU we're paying.

Shall we compare some more? (Because it's always good to be thorough)

Average Gas price in US - $2.388USD/Gallon.
Average petrol price in AU - $1.28AUD/Litre.

Transposed ... 1 gallon of petrol/gas in Australia = 1.28 x 3.785 = $5.07AU = $3.85US

Now we could keep this up going tit for tat, but at the end of the day you can't just say "oh they're not that bad off" just because our minimum wage is higher than yours because our cost of living is higher.

It's the standard of living that matters. Australia has a much higher standard of living. It off sets the higher value minimum wage.
Buy Official Hb/TakaraTitancityformers at retail price or else the 3rd party makers win!

"Shelfwarming"
Btw, its been nearly a year now and TR Soundwave and Blaster aren't moving in the shelve of TRU, is that shelfwarming or what?

$130 and they still have the nerve to charge ($14) for shipping...

Oh, that's right... AusPost are corrupt gougers too...

I'll wait a couple months, then import the same thing for a total cost that's 80% of how much TRU-AU is charging for the figure alone.

About freaking time! Now, I will not have to worry about having to buy TrU's exclusives from scalpers anymore! Both Platinums and MPs confirmed for that fact. It took YEARS but it's FINALLY done.

Now, the only thing I'm worrying about is how much Bluestreak will cost in Canada.

The listing also gives us the very first official images of the figure (let us know if you spot differences with the Takara version) which have been mirrored below.

Also, this will be the very first exclusive Masterpiece figure available in retail in Quebec (any previous release could not be shipped to an address in Quebec).

I know its great news for things to come. Now we are on an even playing field. I hope they rerelease Soundwave one day. I guess all those letters Kanrabat and I sent payed off.

Also, its pretty smart how generations is the same in french and in english.

With the exchange rate, 89.99 Canadian is just over $73 US. We can probably guess the US price point will be $70, just like Prowl.

Yeah, I am assuming the only reason why there is a price increase for candians from last year's prowl is due to the exchange.I dont think the figure itself has augmented in price.

Also, in Quebec it's pronounced gainairaSSion.
