The Jedi Temple Archives has reported that the upcoming ToysRus Exclusive Hasbro Transformers Masterpiece MP-06 Bluestreak is going a slightly different route than the Masterpieces of old. Its customary for these Masterpieces to be sold at the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) ToysRus booth before hitting general retail release, but supposedly there won't be one. The Star Wars fansite is saying that this figure is destined to be an online exclusive. We'll have to wait and see if this comes to fruition, so stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your Transformers News!

The online exclusivity makes perfect sense to me. Walmart was already doing it (and is currently doing it with the platinum seekers) and its no matter to me. It's the same price online, shipping is free at their price and I get it delivered to my door. These are for collectors and most are well versed in buying online. This will liberate shelf space for more toys that families can afford and keep scalpers at bay due to the restrictive purchasing quantities online. As long the item is available in some easy way (like this), I have no issues with it.

At "leader" price, meaning 60$, I would buy that Bluestreak. At 90$+, that's just highway robbery. I don't really care about online exclusivity because NOW we can finally buy these in Quebec, with free shipping.

I'll just have to wait for the innevitable clearance sale and hope I will be able to grab one before the scalpers grab them all.

I don't really know if financially it makes sense to this, but I will say it makes me was when ANY figure doesn't see a store shelf.

That depends. Do these fly off the shelves? Because if yes, then they should be on shelves. Quebec only had exposure to exclusives this year so all I have seen so far are the insecticons and YOTG soundwave and Prime. And as Kanrabat can attest, they are not budging. They are also sold online and collectors can get them there. I am sure TRU would rather have that nice space to put more hyperchange figures or voyagers and other low budget fast selling products instead of those. Thats how I reason this decision financially speaking.

It's true that for the high end collector items, it's better for them to be online exclusive. You will never see Mom take one on a whim for Little Timmy.
And I'll sound like a broken record, but man, these TrU prices... WTF, TRU?
Why the hell selling these for DOUBLE the price they are supposed to? Sure, it's anti-scalper, but goddamn, who is crazy enough to buy them at such outrageous prices when cheaper options are readily available? Why not make them online exclusive, 50% off, and limit ONE per customers? That way, the stock will MOVE.

I read on another thread that you didn't have internet, but now you can easily score these MP's from TRU.com and with free shipping there's really no downside. ;)

It depends. Prime, Grim, Soundwave, Thundercracker flew off of shelves. The Storm's sat around for a bit, and Prowl was probably the biggest shelf warmer, but everything sells eventually. At my TRU's the longest MP to hang around is YOTG Soundwave, but the price hike coupled with the odd deco is probably why.

If it's an online exclusive, they better up their shipping game. Never had a box not come 1/2 destroyed from tru.com

Only Prime and Soundwave really flew - it's easy to think Grimlock sold quickly because of how expensive it goes for now, but in fact they shelf warmed. For some time, actually. Thundercracker also stuck around for a good amount of time.

I 100% understand why Bluestreak would be an online exclusive. It just bums me out I won't be able to pick one out at retail. Almost everything I get from TRU's site is banged up a bit, and I like my boxes minty fresh. Hopefully they get some stock at Times Square.

The saying is true: never trust a Jedi. Yesterday we reported that ToysRus Exclusive Transformers Masterpiece MP-06 Bluestreak might not see store shelves. But not only will he see the shelves, he's currently sitting on some right now! Seibertrons own Down_Shift spotted the Masterpiece at a local ToysRus in Berlington Ontario (Canada) with the price tag of $89.99 CAD and snapped a pic for proof. How widespread his release will be is yet unknown, but Seibertron.com will keep you up to date!

I'm pretty annoyed by the fact that YOTH Optimus is priced 100$ while the G2 butterscotch Optimus is priced 200$.

Yes, very annoying. In. Deed. :roll:

Knowing TRU it's probably an SDCC and TRU.com exclusive in the US, but normal TRU retail for the rest of the world. Wouldn't surprise me at all somehow.

But more likely this is where Hasbro is doing their US launch, they've done that previous years with MPs launching at SDCC.

Holy crap Will! You're right! Those totally WERE the droids they were looking for. Tisk tisk, Sneaky Jedi.


So I'm confused. In the States, they are online only, but the rest of the world not. Is that what yer laying down jaki?
