Very quickly after its US retail debut at San Diego Comic Con, Toys R Us has already opened up Masterpiece Bumblebee (and Spike) for purchase on their website. Coming in at a price of $64.99, it's a little less offputting than the converted Canadian Toys R Us price, but like most all Hasbro released MP Autobot Cars, still coming in higher than the original Japanese pricing. There's no telling how long this will stay in stock as previous launches like this have sold through pretty fast, so get on it while you can! Find the link in the full post below.
Less of a revelation than the color photos of MP Cheetor, fans will be happy to see some new looks at the grey prototype for Masterpiece Inferno, and in the same display case, the full color Delta Magnus recolor of Masterpiece Ultra Magnus. It is a little surprising to not see the color copy of Inferno, which has previously appeared just recently, but it's good to see the figure in some dynamic poses just the same!

Hot on the heels of San Diego Comic Con, the summer Wonderfest has begun in Japan, and has already delivered its first major piece of news! From the Weibo page of 52Toys, we have our first look at a color prototype of Masterpiece Cheetor. While only the robot mode model is seen in color today, it demonstrates a really nice looking finish that's very accurate to the CG cartoon model. We've got the photos mirrored, so keep reading to take a look. And stay tuned for further reveals from Wonderfest!
Someone at Hasbro Asia seems to have discovered that you can do things with metal besides make it into coins! The company has announced that in Asian territories outside of Japan, purchasers of Masterpiece Inferno will receive a miniature diecast figure of Optimus Prime! All we have at the moment is a silhouette, but odds are good it's unarticulated. Keep reading to see the photo and announcement.
The 1984 Takara Diaclone Corvette Stingray was released in black and grey colours only in Finland as an R-Kioski retailer exclusive for a short time. While the 2002 Takara reissue lucky draw Black Tracks loosely referenced that Diaclone, it wasn’t until 2016 and the Tokyo Toy Show exclusive Masterpiece MP-25L Destron Sonic Sapper Loudpedal that Finland’s legendary gem was paid proper official tribute. This could be the best Masterpiece toy homage we’ve ever had.
