From various Asian forums/newsgroups, MP-02 will be released again by TakaraTomy in November. Let's hope the QC will be better than the MP-04 we're getting at the moment... :o

Yeah it does. I hope he comes with a Trailer but I seriously doubt it.

If they are constantly going to re-release things like the MP's then I hope they have some small difference so you can tell if they are first second or third release products.

i like this re-release I love the paintjob on Magnus far more than Prime even though Prime is a significantly more important toy.

MP07 is Thundercracker dude. :) But yeah, I non-nekkid version would make a re-release more meaningful. I'd maaaaaaybe get it? (depends on price/value) I skipped the first two releases of MP02 (Takara's and Hasbro's Target exclusive) because I felt the straight nekkid repaint wasn't good value - even though the prices we had here were decent.

I wonder how much it would set us back if they did make an MP trailer for Magnus... :eek:

Its reached such a point in my 'dream wants' list that I am willing to pay the big bucks for it.

Hmm, so its only a rumour at the moment? Once it's confirmed, I'll be selling off my MP-02 ASAP because I paid way too much for it lol

Oh yay! Thats like the holy grail for me just like MP-04 before they re-released it again, so if the rumour its true, its totally awesome for me.. :)

While he may be just a white Prime... I wouldn't mind having a Magnus. If the price is right of course.

It wasn't that hard. MP Ultra Magnus were sold at Targets in plentiful supply and I remember seeing them on shelves for quite a while.

Wheres masterpiece Blurr?

Me too! $80 from Penrith, it was the only one that hadn't been trashed during the 12-14 months it had been on the shelves!

It is a bit odd that MP-02 is getting re-released, seeing as the market has had a number of MP-01 and 20th Prime re-releases over the past few years.

MP02 made me a fair amount of moolah the first time around.
Let's hope he can do the same again!:)

Yeah so now it's Mp-02's turn. :D Well I supposed it kinda works for people who haven't got it. I got my MP-04 from RK and felt cheated when Target is having it for $179, if only I had waited. So now I'm not gonna pay over $200 for MP-02, I'll just wait for it to be re-released some day.

Should be out November 2008 if the BBTS Pre-order page is to be believed.

Oh yay, I just saw the pre-order page too:

But I think I'm gonna wait for RK cause they will probably be cheaper.. :p

so it there a good reason why i shouldnt sell my mp-02 now for big bucks on ebay and then just pick him up in November when he's re-released and in plentiful supply?

I don't think you're gonna make it big after the news. Ebay's prices has plummeted to around AUD130 which is almost the same for a shipped MP02 in November.

unless u get lucky with ppl who hasn't heard the news............:p

Checking completed auctions, Some MP-2's have been going for insane amounts :eek:...

while others are going for bargain rates ($137.50 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190239356612&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fshop.ebay.com%3A80%2F%3F_from%3DR4 0%26_trksid%3Dm38%26_nkw%3D190239356612%26_sacat%3 DSee-All-Categories%26_fvi%3D1) & this BIN for $110 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370072465776&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fshop.ebay.com%3A80%2F%3F_from%3DR4 0%26_trksid%3Dm38%26_nkw%3D370072465776%26_sacat%3 DSee-All-Categories%26_fvi%3D1))

My advice - Wait for a bargain :)

Stuff waiting! Buy this one! (http://cgi.ebay.com/TAKARA-Transformers-Master-Piece-MP-2-Ultra-Magnus_W0QQitemZ140253050785QQihZ004QQcategoryZ469 4QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1713.m153.l1262) ;)

that 2nd auction link was a pre-order for the re-release.

hmm i guess I'll sell mine now and pick him up when I go to Japan in November.

Just look at the mp04 problems thread. I'm keeping my mp02 and not taking any chances.

I think it would be highly unlikely that they would actually be producing more of these when they could be making new optimus primes instead. They're probably going to be referbished returns.
