    Masterpiece Optimus Prime out in Hong Kong, picked one up yesterday









    Totally slipped my mind to take a picture of their display, but they're really pushing it, had about 30-40 MP Primes on mass display at a TRU near where I stayed there.

    edit:
    Took a picture of the bottom. Noticed this might not be the exact US box, since it has Hasbro Australia printed at the bottom. Also, made in Vietnam? Wow, didn't realize Hasbro was making toys in Vietnam and not in China already.



    Does seem like other areas in Asia might be getting theirs soon if the sticker is any indication.

    That's a huge display for a mp fig

    I'm really starting to think it looks a little better than the Takara version

    I know! I heard they released it so I was looking around at the shelves, thinking, where the heck are they, hope they haven't sold out yet and then turning out into the main aisle..BAM..there it was, a huge pile of MPs!

    Anyway, if anyone wants pictures of a particular section of the packaging, I'd be happy to post them.

    You gotta be kidding me, this'll probably hit the U.S in a month or two. I still gotta buy other stuff!

    In fairness though, as far as I know, this TRU branch is one of their most popular ones. Located in a popular tourist as well as local shopping area. Also, I dunno, but you can probably have one shipped cheaper Patience though, since the US will be getting it at a much lower price.

    Thanks for the heads-up! I read on AC-Toys ( I can't access AC-Toys now) that there is a QC issues with regards to his gray part of his headpiece (a slight chip) above his eyes. Apparently there are two batches: 1 batch made in China while the other made in Vietnam, and his was made in China. Any issues with yours? thanks again Intending to get mine as well when it hits my country too
