Another long list of upcoming toys was posted just now and while most were the same we had seen both here and here, there was one Toysrus exclusive that had not been found so far.

156569 – EX TRA Autobot Masterpiece – $99.99


The listings was found in CSIS (Centralized Sales Improvement System, which is Toys R Us' inventory network) by TFW2005 user Optimus423

While the listing is vague, it confirms a few points. Firstly, this means that Hasbro will continue to provide Toysrus with exclusives, which people doubted with the reveal that MPM Ironhide would not be a Toysrus exclusive. Secondly, it means that Hasbro is continuing to release Takara's Masterpiece figures since this listing cannot reffer to any MPM toy. It being an Autobot means that only one out of the two MPM toys that would have worked would have been Ironhide, and as we just mentioned, he is not an exclusive.

So this listing must reffer to an Autobot (and sadly not a Maximal), from Takara's Masterpiece line. Prices have been all over the place in the past few years so it is hard to tell exactly which Takara Masterpiece Autobot Hasbro and Toysrus would release for $100. It looks far too low for Ultra Magnus and far too high for Sideswipe or Wheeljack. Could this be Masterpiece G1 Iornhide?

Let us know what you think.

This toy adds to the several Toysrus Transformers exclusives coming our way this year which now include:

40846 - EX TRA Seeker Thundercracker - $29.99 (DC has 978 on order)
40765 - EX TRA Rebekah Garage - $29.99 (Bumblebee movie?)
141434 - EX TRA Optimus Starscream Set - $24.99
141450 - EX TRA Street Racer - $16.99
156569 - EX TRA Autobot Masterpiece - $99.99

I too would love to have the primary seeker trio in Voyager scale, or even a sextet if we're including the "coneheads," but NOT for this mold. This rendition of Starscream isn't my idea of a real "Classics/neoG1" update of the character. I think we're going to have to wait another several years at this point.

Possible, but that would be the first "non-screen" character in that line-up, which seems to be focusing on characters actually featured in the first couple of films so far. It being an exclusive, though, might mitigate that somewhat.

Those. Figures are ok looking classic seeker figures for seekers are still ones personally like fun to transform voyager seekers in power of prime figure series are good step up for seeker figures

I would actually have liked to see the rest of the seekers made into deluxe size to be limbs for starscream to be honest. It seemed to me that would have been a cool use for them.

I remember being able to get Masterpiece Optimus for $99 (was originally $129, but they had "sales" at $99). So it "could" be a reissue of that figure. Ultra Magnus has the same footprint, so while it seems unlikely, it is possible.

They just reissued Optimus in 2017 and for 160 so on both counts I think we should think of another character.

Yeah, because this mold isn't the best, I would be content with just the three major seekers. They could issue deluxe combining limbs for the remaining coneheads. Heck, they could put out a convention box of the other three and fans would eat that up — they already have the mold. Same for a lavender clone (or Hotlink, as he became known.) Throw that guy in the box. We'll have a blast mix and matching them on the three main seeker bodies.

Whatever it takes to get a good, fleshed out seeker gestalt. Let's do it, Hasbro!

I'm hoping for Ultra Magnus, but it would be cool if it's Sunstreeker too

If the reissue of MP-10 by Hasbro last year was already $140, I sincerely doubt that Ultra Magnus would go for any less then that, let alone for $100. I think the safest bets are either one of the "larger" van/truck chracters like Ironhide or Inferno, or, as you suggested already, a much more costly car mold, like Sunstreaker.

I wish Hasbro would have more transparency about their upcoming releases. By the time a USA masterpiece is announced, I've already bought, shipped, and opened the Takara.

Also, announcing what they have rights to and are PLANNING to release would prevent us from buying 3P masterpiece for items like Mirage, Hound, Jazz, etc.

(Or conversely, knowing they have NO plans to release something due to licensing issues, that would let us know we need to resort to 3P. I know a lot of us are on the fence, keeping an eye out for word from Takara.)

What I wanna know, is what it's number designate will be. Bee was MP-08, Prime was MP-10. Will this be MP-09 to bridge the gap or will they ignore the misstep and go straight to 11 :-?

Probably Inferno, seems too pricey for ironhide but with toysrus uk charging £50 for bumble bee on clearance let alone what they were trying to charge before then, it could just be wheeljack or sideswipe. Always a chance it could be an overpriced sunstreaker.
