$159.97, that is what this toy is priced at right now on Walmart.ca. Those are canadian dollars, which mark this toy at the $120 price point in USD. For those who do not know, this is a 4 inch toy, comparable to the legends class in height but comparable to MP01 in terms of complexity. This is the first ever Hasbro release of this toy (as well as its first release in North America, of course) and it is currently available for purchasing off the site as well. For those unaware, the original Japanese release was available for 4,200 yen, around the $40 price point, back in 2006.

In other Platinum news, the Platinum Edition Autobot Heroes set is available again on Walmart.ca, at $200.

Yeah, no.

Maybe if it hits the bargain bin for $50, like all Platinum releases eventually do.

We've been informed by fellow Seibertronian AzT that Platinum Edition's Year of the Rooster Optimus Prime - the first Hasbro release of Takara's Hybrid Style G1 Convoy mold first released more than a decade ago, if you weren't already aware - has finally been added to Hasbro's US online catalog, at a reduced price to boot! Previously thought to be around $120, here it is listed as $99.99.

Does this price drop make this figure more appealing to you, or is it still a bit of a stretch? Let us know in the Energon Pub!

I got MP Optimus Prime for $99 when he came out. Why would I spend $99 for a far inferior, far small figure?

Sad thing is, I bet due to the price a lot of people are gonna think it's some huge, awesome figure at least the size of a Leader or some such and that'll entice them to get it... and then when it arrives at their door they're sorely disappointed.

Honestly I'd just get the Thrilling 30 Legends Optimus if I wanted him in that scale.

This thing is absolutely atrocious. I love collecting Optimus Primes, and although if you have MP-10 (which I do), then you really don't need any other, especially some inferior, grotesque creation. I'm really disappointed too, because I was born in the year of the Rooster, so I was really hoping for something special, maybe a beast wars rooster? This is so lackluster, and it's a DECADE+ old toy that Takara is just now giving to Hasbro? Give me a break. NOPE. Do not buy.

It's available for a while on Walmart.ca
http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/transformer ... 0196611276
But holy crap, that price is RIDICULOUS. I'll wait for clearance and even then, I'm not sure if I'll ever buy. I already have over 9000 Optimuses afterall.

I was about to point out a video review of the old Takara version. But no one seem to have bothered to make any comparison shots! At least, I know it's 4" tall so it's scout size.

It's about the size of a Scout/Legends toy.
Voyager is to Deluxe, as this Prime is to Legion. ;)^

So, that's a G1 style Cyberverse Optimus Prime box set for 184$CAN (141$US) total with taxes.
Oh joy.

That price is really "French translation for late". #-o

Didnt they? I thought they doomed the entire brand and it wasnt profitable in the states again until Beast Wars came along.
