New pictures have surfaced on Weibo and while this is not the equivalent to an official announcement from Hasbro, some pictures do show the price and where it will be made available. One image shows it will be an SDCC exclusive. Will that mean it's very expensive? Turns out no. If the price is to be believed, this will be one of the cheapest releases of the MP-10 mold with trailer and easily the cheapest of the past 5 years. The price is $149.99 and comes with the trailer, Roller, an accessory that turns Roller into a ghost trap and a box that becomes a wearable proton pack. That is a lot of Ghostbusters love in one release. And I didn't even mention the Ecto-1 license plate we can see in Prime's chest.
You can see all these features and accessories in the images below, enjoy!

Thanks to Scramjet for letting us know of these images from ToyPlus on Weibo c/o Cheem.

They are not close at all. One is voyager, one is leader


I think the real question is about the scale. If the Ecto1 can basically enter Opimu's trailer, like the MP cars, then both are in scale with one another and will look GREAT togheter.

Pretty sure the original question had the idea in mind of these two toys being 2 Ghostbusters on a shelf, so ideally being the same size. But they wont be, this is more like TFs with the ghostbusters theme and linking to the comic.

That’s not a bad price for a figure that was released at $125 when it came out originally. I think the exclusivity and new tooling justifies that.

Of course, they are not meant as "Crossover" characters like those from the Star Wars and Marvel Crossover lines. As proper Transformers with a Ghostbuster theme, this work especially well.

Now what would be interesting is if they give us a Metro Titan repaint of Metroplex to go with this... He was undead in the IDW universe right?

The older voyagers (assuming Ectotron doesn't stand taller than his "mold mates") should scale decently with MP-10. Curious of the alt mode fits completely in the trailer with it closed up... I don't think the inner walls of the trailer are removeable/foldable are they?

No, Metrotitan wasn't a zombie in IDW. In fact, he hasn't really been a zombie in any official media. Go fig :-)

He was never undead, despite what the rumors said back in G1. You're thinking of the Nectrotitan Quintessa, who was mistakenly colored like Metrotitan (VERY destatured tho). Remember, in IDW Titans share Metroplex' body type.

This is probably the saddest excuse to try and get a metrotitan repaint I've ever seen >:oP

On the other hand, that prime looks nice, and it's cool that ectotron can hang out in the bay of the base mode

Prime looks glorious, and I love the new tooling they have given him. Roller as a trap is perfect

and he is far more affordable than I thought he would be. He is a definite get now!

That's no BAPE for sure. However, as a SDCC exclusive, the ressellers will take their cut, putting them to BAPE level of pricing. That is, for international buyers at the very least.

I think Siege Prime works reasonably well for that, actually.

He could stand to show a bit more damage and the effect is lessened the more Siege figures you have on the same shelf.

We should have a chance to get it from Hasbro directly after the SDCC. I actually talked to someone from Pulse to find out if Pulse Premium Members would get an early chance at the leftover SDCC stuff. She told me, they didn't know if they were doing anything like that yet.

Pretty sad for them to put together a Premium service and not know what they plan to do with it except for the free shipping on all orders. Considering it's pretty easy to hit Free Shipping Price point when ordering, it's not much of a boon.

The annual free shipping fee would make more sense for consumers if the site was targeted at small kids toys.

Since it is more of an adult collector site, they really need to focus on clearing out overstock that might do better with collectors than retailers (ie. deep discounts on leftover POTP. MPs, etc.) and/or improved access to things like Selects and store exclusives.

As it stands, the one area I'll give them credit is a moderately good level of inventory stock before selling out.

That's why the premium option was free at first.

I'm pretty sure that Hasbro Premium shop will be irrelevant for people outside the USA. Either we just can't subscribe, or it will cost a zillion dollars to ship a paper clip.

Between exchange rate and shipping, we're screwed, my fellow Quebecer. Still, man, I really like the effort put into these two Ghostbusters versions. Way better than half-assed repaints. These feel full-assed or better, I'd say.

Yup, those are quality stuff. Way better than the overpriced ones we got so far. But it's the accessibility that make me in (the-letters-of-my-user-name-in-reverse-order).
