Toysrus Canada will be getting Movie Masterpiece MPM-08 Megatron but for a high price. That preorder price is $229.99 CAD, which is over $175 USD. It is limited to three per person and is said to be released august first, 2019. Below is the full product description, and there are a few noteworthy aspects:

- There is no mention of exclusivity, which means that this could also be available on Amazon or any other retailer willing to carry this.
- The toy is said to be bilingual so Quebec fans will be able to get it more easily than the other MPMs since Barricade.
- There is an interesting mention in the description clarifying that this is not a 3rd party product. It is the first time I have ever seen such product acknowledged in an official listing.

I'll wait for the KO. Over $200 for a chunk of plastic is a complete joke.

I find it a complete joke when someone actually buys an 800$ statue, but that doesn't mean I should disrespect them for it.

No matter what one buy, it always depend on one's interest.
Beside, it's a pretty lazy argument to dismiss something we don't like when we run down the thing to it's base elements:
--Why buy a toy? It's just plastics.
--Why buy fancy clothes? It's just fabrics.
--Why buy good tasting food? It's just sugar, vitamins, minerals, and glucids.
--Why getting exited on sexy girls? It's just flesh.
--Why live at all? We are just ephemerial cosmic dust.

I really hate it when people do that.

The price is ouch and fairly solidly puts Megs into the "Only if I win the lottery or have another such windfall" category for me, but on the other hand Megatron was quite possibly the absolute most complex design in the movie (someone in the animation department called him a "walking chandelier"), thus necessitating (And I mean actually necessitating, as opposed to MP-44 and its reinventing the wheel to obsessively duplicate the cartoon's artistic license and inking limits to an obscene level) a lot of complex engineering to produce a Masterpiece toy of him, so...

It's good to see movieverse Megatron's original body getting a toy that's not hampered by clumsy gimmicking and the designers having to learn the aesthetic's ropes, and a Masterpiece at that. It's a pity he doesn't include the spear from the flashback sequence, particularly at that price. Who knows, maybe that'll end up being his Retailer Exclusive Accessory.

See, I find it funny that people are saying "ouch" over either Jazz or Meg's prices. Jazz is the same as both Bumblebees and Barricade, and those guys are fairly complex compared to G1 MPs around that price or who were released around that price. Prime and Ironhide were $100 and they both had far more engineering put into them (levels of success not withstanding) than MPs around that price.

Megs is really complex and really big. And that $160 is a lot less ouch when one considers the Inferno mold went for $140 and also where the new MPs his size are standing price wise

Also consider that so far we have found all of the MPM figures on massive discounts on Amazon.

They've mistransformed Jazz especially his backpack. :HEADHURTS:

Love the pic of him standing on one hand on the box. I know it says requires additional support but maybe that's just there to cover their based and maybe he can actually balance like that (just not worth keeping him that way in case he does fall over at some point).

My Studio Jazz balances really well on one foot even without using those black support bits on the back of his feet (I never use those).

The Sam figurine that comes with MP Jazz looks awful, the eyes aren't even painted. They can do better than that.
