oh, for some reason I thought he was younger (wasn't someone on here getting Activators at one time?). In that case, yeah, for sure go with the leader. Fantastic figure all around. Not quite the challenge of RotF Leader Prime (Fuck getting those arms aligned) but still very complex. 40.00 is the standard leader price, I never know if there are good sales on TF's other than the occasional % off from HasbroToyShop.

Speaking of leaders, I'm really really surprised there still hasn't been any anouncment of Decepticons at the leader class. Overall the line is kinda dwindling since Prime is coming I guess. I wonder if they'll do something similar to Hunt for the Decepticons or Generations alongside Prime, or if it's just going to be Prime.

I would have bought it for him already but we just saw the movie last week. We waited to see it on bluray. I did not realize that SP was such a main character. We already have voyager shockwave. Thanks for your help. We have Optimus, Megatron and Jetfire as leaders from the last movie. I would like to put up pics of our collection on here-do you guys know how to do that?

upload them to a free image hosting site. then that'll give you a link to share on message boards. post that link using the image tags (there's a small button for it above the Quick Reply box) and that should be it.

Well I love to collect toys! I love "our" collection of transformers, lego, video games and board games. If I was not such a collector he would not have so much. I collect things that he will play with I guess. Before he was born I used to collect toys. Most adults I know don't get it! But they are his and he plays with all of them! He takes really good care of them and all these years he has lost only one piece of a transformer. I always taught him to be careful with his stuff. He watched the old movie many times, all the old cartoons. He watched animated and prime and all the new movies. He loves transformers! None of his friends seem to know about the toys though. They are missing out on a great toy! Thanks for looking at the pics!

Great collection! Awesome dad is awesome! That's exactly what I plan on doing when I have kids (someday). "yeah honey, these are for the kid..." :D

Wish I had pics of my collection, but I don't have display shelves, they're just piled in storage bins. I did take pics in about 2002 or so. Maybe see if I can dig them out.

Looking at Mickeyp's pictures, it makes me wish I never would have sold/gotten rid of any of my TF toys when I was younger. Although, that's the same reason I started collecting some of the newer toys too.

Rodimus isn't a bad toy. It has a gorgeous robot mode, a somewhat frustrating transformation, and a better-than-good vehicle mode. The only thing I don't really like are the hands, which just don't want to settle into vehicle mode on mine.

That said, what it accomplishes is pretty astounding, and it does it at around half of the cheapest import version (which now runs from $135 for the rev 1 problematic one) to $200+ for the "fixed" version

Personally, I would buy it in a physical TRU. I've read too many reports of problems, so you want to be able to exchange it if you need to. Mine had a windshield crack that wasn't able to be seen until it was opened. I exchanged it, and everything's fine.

Thanks for the info. I actually held off buying the first run because of the reviews and I don't really follow TF toys like I used to.

I just figured I'd drop this bit of info in the thread because I thought they were sold out everywhere and this was a good deal for those that missed out the first time to get one now without needing to pay $100+ for what the other MP's go for.

I too really like Rodimus. Really good figure for what it is. The legs/arms are a complete bitch to line up in vehicle mode but once you figure out the trick it isn't all that bad. Really wish there was a cheap way to get the Winnabego part from the Japanese release, but otherwise I'm happy with it.

It's just a part of the Masterpiece line. More complex, large figures. A bit of diecast. Geared towards the collector market. All of these things make them more expensive. So far in the US we've gotten them all (save the most recent Convoy/Prime. Hopefully we'll get that sans trailer to keep costs down) except some repaints and Megatron. Can't sell realistic gun toys in the US. Which is a shame, cuz that's one of my favorite MP molds and really complex (though a bit fragile. I've broken off a couple small pegs :( )

I don't think that's one you want a cheap(er) Hasbro version of. I don't have any problems with mine, though it frightens quite a lot of people out of transforming it too much.

It's not tough to get an import version. There was a reissue earlier this year, and who knows -- with the new MP-10 Convoy, there might be a new MP Megatron mold coming.

I hope Hasbro does release MP-10 Optimus here. I like what I see, but I just can't justify $250 + shipping and tax.

Prime toys have hit Canada, but they are exclusive to TRU until February/March. I believe that's the same in the US.

After that, they'll be everywhere. This first release has "First Edition" on the packaging, but is otherwise identical to the eventual regular release.

I haven't seen them yet, but I'll be waiting for a sale in any case.

Picked up Ultimate Prime. Even though the combined mode isn't terribly articulated, it is a lot of fun and better than I was expecting. Very good toy.
