MP-22 Masterpiece Ultra Magnus With Trailer

Recommended Posts

I also hope that we'll see a hasbro release of this guy. No reason why they wouldn't bring over a transforming truck after all

 

But then again, they haven't even touched any of the cars. Anyone know why?

 

Rumor about the cars is that Hasbro would have to pay for the brand licensing for a US release. Either it takes time to set that up, or Hasbro isn't willing to shell out the cash. If you noticed, all the Tomy releases are officially licensed with the car manufacturers, and even have their logos on the box.

Even if they secured car licenses, Hasbro would still have to tie-in a release of MP cars with SDCC or some other nonsense. They'd also end up as a store exclusive. Hasbro can't just sell Masterpiece Transformers like regular Transformers.

I'm not sure why they haven't touched the cars. Maybe they think nobody would buy them. They could seek the cars in packs of 3 for $120. The pessimist in me thinks that Hasbro hates the fact that the majority of the customers for transformers is adults. They just don't want to admit it and so they sell crap like those giant vinyl, non transforming POS instead of more MP merchandise.

oh god those vinyls are so hideous lol

 

the takaratomy cars arent that expensive anyway at least...maybe i'll just import a few. Prowl and Red Alert

 

Magnus, however, is too expensive at over $200. I'm definitely gonna hope for a hasbro release instead.

Yeah, don't get me started on that vinyl crap either. I don't get it...a waste of time and effort. :P

 

I agree, though, that price tag is exorbitant. Hasbro needs to get a clue and intervene.

Yes, those vinyl "things" are crap. If I recall, we won't know what the real price of Magnus will be. If it will indeed be a MP-10 with snap on armor, it could be expensive!! I'm hoping it won't be though.

    • Agreed. Let's leave that word in the historical dustbin please.   But I also disagree with the basic argument here ie that this is a stupid controversy. I DO think the current 14 issue is likely a case of an innocent coincidence, but the initial MAGA issue was not. It was an objectively political statement that has no place on a toy. Additionally, there's an extra problem with either being on Jazz; a character whose voice was originated by one of the few black performers to voice a Transformer, and also the first. 14 may have had an innocent origin in this case, but in light of both the previous not-innocent MAGA issue, this being Jazz, AND the fact that the fandom was bound to wonder why a number on a well-loved character was changed (see the endless speculation regarding ER Smokescreen), the result is a very bad look that could have and frankly should have been anticipated by the design team.
