  1. Hey everyone hope you can help. I purchased the new MP prime last week and have one concern. The left side gas tank will not stay tabbed in to the hip. I can align it but it just pushes back out. Has anyone who own s this figure or the MP-10 had this same issue? It is a very minor issue to be sure, but I feel that since I paid the $100 price tag for Prime it should be perfect. I did notice the the blue bar that connects and pivots the tank also does not sit as deep inside the tank in truck mode as the right side (I can just see the metal pin exposed on the left but not at all on the righ
  2. At least 4 MP thundercrackers at TRU Davenport, Iowa as of Today 10/7/12
  3. I got masterpiece Optimus Prime from TRU Moline, IL on Saturday. I called them and they held one for me I checked the shelf when I arrived just to because I wanted to see how many were in stock to find there was not even a shelf tag for MP Prime. But as soon as I got to the customer service desk there it was. I am getting the impression that a lot of these are getting held/sold before they even get a chance to hit shelves so call ahead. This is the first time I have ever called to a store for a transformers item and now I am really glad that I did. Also don't trust the computer inventory
  4. I agree that it will still be awesome, I still intend to buy. I was just commenting that the overall engineering of new transformers has greatly improved over the last 10 years and now there is not a whole lot of difference engineering-wise between MP's and deluxes on the shelf now. My only complaint is that I would have preferred a Sideswipe that was just a little bit bigger, maybe mid chest height on MP 10. But hey I also wanted a smaller Hot Rod because his alt mode looks just huge next to anything except MP-01. Will wait for domestic release of Sideswipe, but probably getting Japan Red
  5. The more I see of sideswipe the more I think it is just going to be a glorified deluxe. Don't get me wrong I am still going to buy, but with the increase is engineering quality of transformers to date masterpiece may have just beome dumbed down slightly and become the standard for all transformers production. Masterpiece will still keep it's high price tag because it will basically be the collector line because there will be no direct media support for these G1 incarnations who really only appeal to us... the children of the 1980's. So far I am not seeing anything articulation-wise that we
  6. Moline, Illinois has Masterpiece Rodimus on shelf. One left as of yesterday. Did not have the money to get it.
  7. Probably Galvatron hopefully with some killer electronics at that price point. However could it be a group of same mold characters like the coneheads or autobot cars. I know they said new Character but could it be new characters?
  8. I was and have always been a huge hot rod fan..... Rodimus not so much. Yeah Rodimus was kind of whinny and full of self-doubt, but as an adult I find that to be expected as part of the natural character progression. Optimus probably did much of the same in his early years questioning his place and if his leadership would bring about the downfall of autobots. Op becomes a mythic figure, legendary and revered almost as a god as the bot who went out into the universe only to become lost (along with the decepticon leader) for over 4 million years. Shockwave was not nearly the badass that Me
