Courtesy of TFW2005 member and Ozformers administrator griffin-of-oz, we can post some clarification to our earlier report of Masterpiece Ultra Magnus’ release in Australia next year:
- Kelvin Chan is not the artist for this project, but rather wrote the English language bio of the instruction booklet.
- Masterpiece Ultra Magnus is getting a limited Australian release of just 400 pieces. This release is 400 pieces of the Hong Kong / Hasbro Asia release of the Japanese Masterpiece Ultra Magnus, in a similar style to previous releases of other Masterpieces in Australia – such as the original Masterpiece MP-2 Ultra Magnus release.
- Masterpiece Ultra Magnus will arrive in Australia in early February, will be released in two batches (250 in February 2015 and 150 on 4 April 2015), and will retail for AU$299.99. He’ll be available through Toys R Us Australia.
- It should go without saying as this is an import of the Japanese toy, but this does not relate to a US release.
It should also be noted this is not a rumor – this is confirmed, via a listing in Toys R Us Australia’s computers relayed via Ozformers member Sinnertwin.
A big thanks to Griffin for the clarification!
