The US Toys R Us website has put up a listing for the new re-release of Masterpiece MP-10 Optimus Prime! While the figure has been making appearances on store shelves in some parts of the world, he has been fairly hard to come by, so being able to order him online might save some collectors the trouble of hunting him down. The penultimate OP is listed for $159.99 USD, is exclusive to Toys R Us, and does currently qualify for free shipping. The Hasbro version of the classic MP is currently out of stock, but will probably become available soon, and when he does, you'll hear about it here, on Seibertron.com!

Am I missing something? This has been available from the website for quite some time. It was available for shipping a few weeks back too, but that's probably sold out. Unless there's a refresh, it's only available in stores. Last I checked, there were a bunch of stores by me that still had stock.

Yeah, this has been up for months. They may have pulled the listing and re-added it with new stock, but this is not a new listing.

Am I looking at the comparison shots right?? The side by side of the 2012 Hasbro and even the Takara Tomy make the MP-10 of 2017 somehow look a bit shorter and slightly wider in bot mode..

is that the way they are, or is it just perspective from the camera shots??

They decided to slightly alter the mold (making him taller and wider by 0.47cm) for this release.

Hello, new collector here. How did you find out this really detailed size info or was this reply tongue-in-cheek?

I also appreciate the super thorough side-by-side photograph comparison/review alongside the 2012 Hasbro and Takara Optimuses.

Is there a place that lists the differences between the Takara original, the Hasbro 2012, the Hasbro Asia 2014, and Hasbro SDCC exclusive, and the Hasbro 2017? Did I leave out any releases? Is there a centralized place where I can find all the comparison info/stats/pictures?

I just want to sponge up as much info as I can before I decide whether to keep/open the two 2017s I picked up case-fresh, from TRU. I am also thinking of trading one of these for the 2012 release because I like the way the box from the older release displays the toy without opening it.

There isn't any massive pictorial comparisons I'm aware of. And there's so many releases...

Takara's MP-10 has had 3 releases, maybe 4 including Asia. Hasbro's window box MP-10 (not actually called "MP-10")was released 1st in TRU, then in Asia and online at BBTS. Then the newest iteration is a TRU exclusive, but was offered at SDCC (and BBTS as SDCC) like they do.

Then maybe just open one, and sell/trade the other for a MISB window box version?

The image below shows the figure on the shelf in the Toys'R'Us in Joliet, Illinois.

The surprising fact is that, according to TRU, it's still a little early for the figure to be showing up at physical retail - so good luck, use the Sightings Database and happy hunting!

Tho I own the 2012, and still think the colors are a bit different, and I prefer the 2012 from what I've seen, the 2017 is very nice in it's neat box. It sure packs up nicely.. The window box is hard to store because of the slanted sides.. you guys know exactly what I mean!

if it were flat on the side at a 90 degree angle..great! You could store it on it's side..

But NOOOOOooooooo!! :-(

the thing is slanted and you HAVE to store it and the trailer on it's side! Taking up valueable shelf space.. But we deal with it don't we! :BANG_HEAD:

You 2017ers.. So Lucky with you're Neat and Tidy little box with a HUGE cool Autobot logo..

Soooooooooo Jealous here!! I may have to get one!! But do I really need two? Arghhhhh!! :BOOM: Sigh, Collecting is such a rough 1st world issue.. :DANCE:

...well ****!!!

Dog knocked my brand-*******-new MP-10 off the table and the left smoke stack insert (the slidey part) snapped in half. Does anybody happen to have a junker MP-10 they could spare a stack from? I'd be more than prepared to pay. I'd prefer this release, but I'll take what I can get at this point. Thanks guys.
