Default I found Masterpiece Rodimus for anyone interested

My TRU had a few of the Masterpiece Rodimuses on the shelf, so I picked one up figuring to hawk it on Ebay. Looks like the prices on those have tanked, so if anyone here wants it at cost and real shipping, let me know and I'm happy to pass it along.

It'll be in TRU in the UK by Christmas, no doubt.

Is the Hasbro version at least using the slightly less shit "fixed" version of the toy?

What is the US retail cost, out of interest? XE has just surprised me with US$60 being about UK£36 at the moment... anyone mind estimating how much the airmail on that would work out as?

No way in hell the TRU nearest to me will chance another MP figure, I suspect. Fortunately Roddy doesn't have quite the cachet to inspire impulse online buying.

edit:

Although looking at in-box pics, the design is... er, quirky.

Waiting on a quote for Greece, I'll let you know. Should be quite similar, if not the same.

Retail is ~$64 after tax, shipping (from Central US, at least) to Europe looks to be about $18. So a little over US$80 all told.

toyzandgamez.com have the us version in stock. They're listing it for £89.99 iirc or near to that number.

Notabots $80 is around £49 so a good £10 cheaper than the uk model can be bought for.

TRU in Ipswich did indeed have one in stock when I was there last night, priced at the usual MP price of £59.99. I think the grey used for the face and other bits is too dark, but the TM looks awesome.

I passed. I am poor.

Rodimus is no longer with us. He's gone on to a better place. Greece. (I'm assuming Greece is a better place just because you see way more postcards from Greece than from Centerville, South Dakota.)

I will keep any eye out in case my TRU restocks, and I'll let y'all know if more become available.

Do all of the US/non-Japanese ones come with Firebolt, BTW, or is it a limited edition?

All US ones. Although it baffles me how the first, and quite possibly only masterpiece mould targetmaster is not released with all versions of the figure.

Got it today. Very quick turn around time.

Overall more robust than takara's, will post in other threads and maybe write a preview.

Surprisingly small box. I got it with another package at the post office, and looking at their labels, I thought "what...? Did I order a deluxe and can't remember?"

Haven't seen any more Rodimii, but it looks like there's a glut of Warpath, Thundercracker, and Wheeljack at my Walmart. Priced at 9.88 last I saw.

Seems Hasbro Rodimus has a few QC issues of his own:

Personally, I'd be disappointed spending £60 on a toy and finding it's got problems like these.

I haven't noticed any of the QC issues they mentioned with the one I got.
 

As a professional tanuki (I'm a Japanese mythological animal, and a good luck charm), I have an alarm clock built into me somewhere. I also look like a stuffed animal. And you thought your life was tough......

I like how the person (from Cybertron!) who found his was broken in the box would still recommend it to a friend.

They have two -- possibly the minimum order for store -- and there's no sign of them reducing the remaining Grimmys.

Not very impressive in the plastic.
