Facebook user Sam Scott Robertz has posted a gallery of MP-36 Golden Lagoon Megatron to Facebook! This is the best look we've gotten at the "Lucky Draw" version of the G1 Masterpiece. We're not quite sure how distribution will work for this, but it likely will be via some kind of contest - and we wouldn't want to transform this, either. Keep reading to see!

The Facebook group Transformers: Rarity of Convoy has posted images of an MP-36 Megatron in vac-metal gold! Even the accessories have been redone in various types of golden plastic this time around. We don't yet know how many will be available or how, but if we had to guess on those our answers would be "less than 10" and "in a Japan-only contest." Keep reading to see!

RFC and forums member, Diecast, reviews what is being called the ultimate movie edition Optimus Prime figure. The original Revenge of the Fallen mold has been reissued with new apps and updates as the Takara Tomy Hasbro Transformers Masterpiece MPM-04 Movie Optimus Prime figure. Is it more than meets the reprise? Watch the video review to find out.

Thanks to heo geun we have a look at some of the contents from the latest issue of Figure King Magazine, which has a two page feature on TakaraTomy's release of MPM-4 Optimus Prime. The North American version of the figure is already available at Toys R Us in some areas, so we're already familiar with the toy to some degree. What's important here is deco changes, though it seems that the sample photographed for the magazine may be the same unit shown at Wonderfest recently, which may have been slightly incomplete deco-wise. But we're sure to see plenty more of this before release to make sure. Click through to see the magazine photos!

TakaraTomy's website has been updated with official stock photos from today's reveals. First up is MP-40 Hot Rod, redecoed in a fairly specific variant of the character's cartoon coloring and now sporting Firebolt, in the form of the Offshoot figure that was made for the US release of MP Rodimus Prime several years ago. We've got the full standard photo range, plus a turnaround series for both the robot and vehicle mode, so we get a fairly complete look at this figure. Click through and check it out!

TFND has posted images of MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rod with his partner Firebolt! While the handgrip is likely a new molding to accomodate the smaller scale of modern Masterpieces, the majority of Firebolt is indeed taken from the "Offshoot" mold released with Hasbro's version of MP-9 Rodimus Prime. Keep reading for photos! This is up for pre-order now at BigBadToyStore.com.

Just in by way of the official Seven - Eleven (7-11) Japan page, we have a look at the Transformers Masterpiece MP-711 Character Card For Cybertron Commander-in-Chief Convoy! The exclusive repaint of the MP-10 Optimus Prime will be offered at 7-11 stores in Japan in limited quantities. Read on to get a look at the full card image after the jump.

Japanese retailer Rakuten, by way of reliable Japanese fansite Autobase Aichi, has announced that they're expecting reissues of Masterpiece Ultra Magnus and Megatron in January! Magnus is priced in the 13,000 Yen range (US $118 by today's exchange rates) and Megatron will be 16,000 Yen (US $145). Keep reading!

Just up on Takara Tomy Mall is the official details and images for the Transformer Movie MPM-4 Optimus Prime figure that will be released in Japan September 16, 2017. The images give a good look at the production paint apps and details along with a reveal of the price. The Autobot Leader will set you back 16,200 JPY ~ $145 USD, were you to buy it in Japan. This figure will surely be available stateside at a later date. Read on to see the images and more details.

Following the teaser and an in hand photo from Facebook shortly after, we've now got the official reveal for the very Ultra Magnus-looking 7 Eleven exclusive version of MP-10 Convoy. Designated as "MP-711" we now know that it will cost 25,000 Yen, and that the order period begins on July 31, and does not appear to have an established end date. MP-711 will become available on February 28, 2018Interestingly, the sale page says repeatedly home delivery is not available, and it sounds like the item must be received from a 7 Eleven location in Japan. It's also limit 2 per person, so this might be rather costly to get hold of for the rest of the world. Keep reading to see the official images!

Images reposted from an uncredited Weibo source turned up on Facebook early this morning, showing that Ultra Magnus has apparently left his City Commander position to go start a new life as a delivery driver for 7 Eleven. Following a tweet from TakaraTomy's TF_pr Twitter account teasing a reveal to happen on 7/28 using a silhouetted MP-10, photos of the cab-robot Ultra Magnus-color MP-10 with 7 Eleven branding in place of Autobot symbols on robot and trailer. This looks like it will be a 7net exclusive, much like the Japanese release of "Nemesis Prime" colors for The Last Knight Voyager Optimus. Keep reading to see the photos!

Thanks to Dah Padre, we can share with you a report of the first in store sighting in the US for the rerelease of the Toys R Us exclusive MP-10 Optimus Prime. The figure had gone up - rather briefly - on the Toys R Us website for order during SDCC, but sold out quickly. In store sightings, such as this one in Joliet, Illinois will have to do for anyone who needs this toy, at least until or unless it becomes available again via the website. Click through for the photographic proof!

The official TakaraTomyMall page for the upcoming Masterpiece Cassette 4-Pack has updated with some new photos! This is an oddball of a set, featuring 2 Autobot tapes despite the absence of an MP Blaster. And one of them is a new Steeljaw mold. Huh. Well, while we wait for the increasingly inevitable MP Blaster, keep reading to see his first two cassettes, along with Wingthing and Enemy!

Takara Transformers MP-10B Masterpiece Black Convoy is repainted in the color scheme of Nemesis Prime, the evil counterpart of Optimus prime. Made of plastic and die-cast MP-10B features clear cab windows and comes armed with a blaster rifle and energy axe.

Coinciding with the launch of the preorder period, TakaraTomy Mall has added photos of the four Masterpiece cassette characters making up their combined MP-15/16-E set. Enemy, Wingthing, Stripes, and new mold Night Stalker are all on display in full color and deco, showing both robot modes and their individual cassette form decos. There's no clear indication of when preorders for the set will be closed, but the page now gives a delivery estimate of December for the set. You can find all the images in the gallery below!
