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.

Are there any notable differences between Hasbro's and Takara's versions?

They're wasting time making Autobot G1 car Masterpieces and repaints of the Seeker jet mold, when they SHOULD be doing MP Shockwave!

I think there is a problem with the rights issue for likeness of the original toy. Same reason he can't be reissued.

No shoulder canons/rocket launchers? :-?
I actually find them to be cumbersome anyway.

I don't see any notable difference (like Prowl). The normal Bluestreak and Prowl don't come with the external missile launchers.

I wish there were differences... something, anything. Have something different (like an add on) to justify buying it here in North America. The price of the American Masterpiece cars has been far too high in comparison to the imports from Japan. When the MP cars come out in Japan, you can usually find them for under $70 US.

Forget the fact that there's knock offs. That's beside the point.

The point is... anyone who wants this, should already have this.

I had high hopes when we got MP Soundwave in the states for such a great deal. The $100 I spent on Optimus, I felt was worth it. But Prowl and now Bluestreak... what gives?

The only thing I can figure is that the the North American licensing fees for the automobile companies must be much higher than in Japan. And that's a shame, as I see it as free advertising.

Free advertising for Crazy Sammy's Used Car Emporium! :lol:
No, but I hear you. I never actually considered the licensing.

While I a happy to have the option to get Bluestreak, it's too bad I will have to wait for a sale to get him since at this price, he is pretty much the same as going to an import boutique toy store and getting a takara release of the mold. It has been confirmed through a tru computer that Hasbro MP Starscream released later this year will cost the same price as bluestreak and that boggled my mind.

But then I realized something. License agreements are national/regional, not global (we know this from the alternators line when Honda Japan would allow stuff Honda USA wouldnt and thus the hasbro release was different from Takara's). So, a license could (and probably does) cost more for Hasbro than Takara. Which explains why the licensed MP cars cost so much compared to Hasbro's MP 10, Grimlock and Soundwave which were cheaper than Takara's and didnt need a license from a manufacturer outside of Hasbro.

The fact that Starscream doesnt need a license would explain why he will cost the same as this Bluestreak MP.

EDIT: Sorry Black Bumblebee if I am repeating what you wrote, I was writing my message for a while.

If this had the shoulder launchers I'd be all over it As it stands, I could take it or leave it.

I'm hoping mold degradation fixes that perma-clip, that occurs in the chest when this mold is "properly" transformed into robot mode, for prospective buyers.
My poor TakaraTomy Streak/Bluestreak is still afflicted by the Nucleon and stuck in robot mode.
I miss transforming that guy.
That one issue is what's keeping me from jumping on the Blue Bluesteak before it's out of a reasonable price range forever.

@ the mods or anybody who is in the know. How is it that Australia TRU gets dibs on certain Materpieces while the US does not?

Iirc MP-02, MP-24 and the upcoming Bluestreak. Is it because Australia is in Asia or whatever is the reason?
