It's hard for me to imagine it's worth Hasbro's time to try to sell MPs of any but the highest-profile guys (or entirely new guys like Acid Storm). With regards to Sideswipe, for example...who's going to buy that who doesn't already know how to get it online from Japan? I just can't see a lot of people wandering into TRU and picking up a $90 Sideswipe the way they might buy Soundwave or Optimus.
Hasbro TRU MP-10 is... MP-10 Optimus Prime. Now out at TRU in Canada and the United States.

We already have TR Sentinel Prime.
... Hasbro Trump? Oh dear.
But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

I got mine at the Entertainment Earth booth at SDCC (because I can) and it's really neat. Finally! What really struck me was the packaging - they packed it tightly with minimal wasted materials. I'm used to non-window US MP boxes being 90% air, so this was really impressive. I wasn't able to find the previous US releases, which is one of very, very few post-BW American Transformers toys I've never seen in person in any capacity.
