    I only have the TRU Optimus Prime. I haven't opened him because I don't have display space for him. I'm also afraid he might break because I am terrible at transforming.

    I'm pretty sure I am going to end up selling him off. I don't do well with expensive toys. I prefer the fast action with smaller figures and stuff in the bargain bins This guy's just kind of out of place in my collection...

    Just when I couldn't kick myself enough for not having any of these MP's (especially Soundwave & Quakewave), they go and announce Wheeljack...

    It's never too late to start. A G2 decoed Sideswipe is coming as well; not a bad way to acquire that mold since the previous releases of it are rather cost prohibitive at the moment.

    Without doubt Light, i'd love to be able to start right now in buying up the recent releases dating back to at least Sideswipe & Red Alert but I just can't afford it at the moment. Another thing, as we are all aware about, the T:MP earlier releases are too darned expensive! Grimlock, for example, is absolutely beyond my reach...

    I get jealous but happy (if that makes sense!) when I see fans post pics of their MP figures, displaying their latest acquisition with their older MP figures. But at the same time I hope the the MP line lasts as long as possible!

    I picked up Masterpiece Soundwave today at ToysRUs...


    LOVE IT! Oh man I am so happy about this figure you have no idea.

    Pro:
    Dang near everything.


    One con:
    I will say that hi left leg hip joint sticks and it scares me because I am afraid I will break it. The joint seems very fragile
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    I got Masterpiece Soundwave from TRU this weekend! Damn these guys are big as hell--midway between a Classics 7" figure and a Classics Giant! You can't beat 6 Decepticons in one package!

    I've got eight more to eventually hunt down through Amazon or eBay (TRU MP-10 Optimus, Rodimus, Grimlock, Coronation Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Red Alert and Sideswipe). Optimus is probably next, if not Prowl, Bluestreak and Smokescreen.

    I hope they bust out a Megatron in-scale with MP-10.

    Yeah, I knew they wee going to do that.

    I hope they do more cassettes so they can do another box set.

    Otherwise, I hope they just pack ratbat in with some other masterpiece like prowl or something when they come to the US.

    I hope that they will. Not everyone is going to pay almost $200 for a repainted Soundwave.

    Maybe Ratbat will come with another Decepticon...maybe Shockwave?

    I already pre-ordered my Sounblaster from BBTS. I'm not taking any chances with Ratbat.

    Maybe Hasbro will feel inspired by MP Soundwave's popularity and just import Soundblaster and Ratbat to be sold at or around the Acid Storm price point... $75-$80 or thereabouts.

    Those look real nice. I saw a review of Masterpiece Sideswipe and was surprised how small he was. Are these about the same size as Sideswipe? Prowl was a definite favorite of mine as a kid. I think it may have been because he was one the more toon-accurate (or vice versa) figures.

    Yeah, the Autobot cars are being scaled to each other (and MP-10 Optimus).

    They're being released in Japan. Prowl is due later this month, Bluestreak in October, and Smokescreen in December.

    I MAY get that SS. I like this mold better than the original but it is going to be hard to justify. They will eventually release him at ToysRUs so I will wait.

    Ultra Magnus?!?!? Yes please!
