Only 500 of these will be printed and pre-orders start at 11am eastern time June 13th at www.stadiumcomics.com!”
The toy has shown up without advanced warning of its existence, in-package (and out!) in Singapore! Until today, the toy has been merely a rumor.
With two distinct and high quality versions coming out in such close proximity, it presents an interesting question to fans. That is, I am really enjoying Studio Series with its scale accuracy and cost/value. I’ve also been loving the Movie-Masterpiece Line with it’s spare-no-expense,
make the higher cost amd best toy possible versions. Among those of you fans interested in a definitive best Movie Ironhide, will you be picking up the Movie Masterpiece,
Studio Series or both???
