    Staff Update - A trusted source at TRU has denied this rumor and confirmed that this will be a Toys R Us exclusive. Full story here:

    I just posted this in the SDCC 2012 - Masterpiece Optimus Prime thread, but felt it deserved its own news spot.

    Ok so I just got done talking to Rob on the Hasbro customer live chat here Live Chat

    This is what he had to say about Masterpice Optimus Prime.

    "Thank you for waiting. Regrettably an official release date is not available for this figure. However, I am aware this toy will be sold at the following retailers: Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target and Toys R Us. I would suggest checking our web site in the future for updates on this item."

    So bad news is it looks like he is not coming out this month.

    Good news is it looks like he will be a wide release! So hopefully we can all get our hands on him easily!!!!!

    ::Edit:: Seeing as it keeps getting asked for, this is his SKU 863856

    They're both good news to my broke ass wallet.

    Great news! I'm thinking it still won't be "easy" to find him, but it won't be quite the mission impossible that required for finding TRU exclusive Transformers.

    I'm still skeptical of any news given by a customer service rep. I'll wait until the official announcement.

    Yeah, either this is really good news or just a typical clueless rep that's just making stuff up cause they don't know anything.

    Assuming this is true, this should help keep the price down.

    That'd be awesome considering there's no TRU for miles where I am.
