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

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.

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.

Autobase Aichi has dug up a new image showing that a Kabaya version of the Seacons will be released somewhere in the near future. These technically will represent the iteration of the Seacons from Masterforce, but they happen to be pretty much identical to the US release Seacons. The only picture of the kits are combined as King Poseidon. And since Masterforce's Seacons were legions of drones apart from Turtler, getting duplicates of most of these wouldn't be a bad thing! Click through to check out the solicitation image.
It must be a day ending in Y, because there's an Optimus Prime figure being recolored as Nemesis Prime in Japan.

Also on display are QTransformers phone straps, buttons featuring lines from the animation, and even a "life-size" model of QTransformers Bumblebee! Keep reading to see the event!
