Do you have a receipt for this? Because MP Hot Rod isn't even listed yet. Proof or it never happened.

$129?! I got mine for 59.00 free shipping from ToysRUs.com, SON! If MP Rodimus is a penny over 70.00, ship that pile of fail back to the sweatshops - and tell 'em Uncle Sam said no more lunch breaks till next Chinese New Year - the Year of Quality Control, trickazzez! I said ... read more

So we can agree that it will most likely be more than $100 and less than $200??!

Except it's Toys R Us selling it. So it could happen.

Hsbro would probably charge $100, it's hard to say since Optimus was never offered with his trailer.

But that's the one from Takara-Tomy, which has a mark-up from online stores. One made by Hasbro would not cost $200.

Because theTakara one is $200 on BBTS and TF Source

It wouldn't cost $200. Why does everyone think that?

Yeah, but they're asking 16.99 apiece for the TRU Deluxe Animated Exclusives right now, so I wouldn't put it past 'em. :/

Well, if the US is the only country that doesn't get the trailer, it means that TRU isn't sold that US buyers will pay $200 for the figure... especially in this economy.

BotCon 2015 Transformers Convention News
More Generation 1 Japan News
An unexpected hit in Japan, the QTransformers animation series has returned for a second season! The first episode is titled "The Road To Winning A New Fanbase," and seems to be congratulating itself on acquiring an audience that doesn't entirely overlap with existing Transformers fans. As always, the episode involves a lot of standing around and talking in a language most of the people who visit this site don't speak - but at least it'll only take 3:30 out of your day. If that sounds good to you, keep reading to watch!
Site sponsor Robotkingdom has posted a pair of preorders for new figures in the QTransformers line based on the Paper Rabbit Rope series. (That's pronounced "Ro-peh," not "rope.") There's precious little information about the characters out there, but we did find a Japanese language commerical of the QTransformers to be - Rope and Akira-sempai - enjoying delicious Nissin Ramen. Keep reading to see the ad and the photos!
Following up on the new, Masterpiece-styled DiaBattles seen at Tokyo Toy Show, site sponsor Robot Kingdom reports thatTakaraTomy has announced a new line called Diaclone Reboot for winter of this year! It's not currently known if the line will be reissues or new items... but unless it's both, that DiaBattles does make us lean towards the former. Keep reading for the image and announcement!
QTransformers has done pretty well for itself in Japan. Well enough to attract licensed characters to the line, such as this Hello Kitty that turns into a G1 Optimus Prime-style truck. Release (in Japan) is set for July at a price of 1200 Yen. Keep reading to see the official images from Dengeki Hobby!
While not strictly Transformers-related, it's still pretty fascinating: photos are surfacing on Weibo (by way of Twitter) of a Tokyo Toy Show display that appears to show a Masterpiece-style take on the Diaclone figure Diabattles, one of the more sci-fi themed Diaclone figures that was not selected to become a Transformer. Perhaps even more interesting is the inclusion of Masterpiece-styled Diaclone pilots! First photos after the jump!
