Colored Looks at Transformers Masterpiece MP-12 Lambor Show All the Awesome; Amazon To Include Additional Pile Drivers
puma - Wednesday, June 13, 2012

At this rate, Takara Tomy may not have anything left to reveal at this weekend's Toyko Toy Show. Japanese retailer e-Hobby has posted the product page for the company's Transformers Masterpiece MP-12 Lambor (Sideswipe) and Amazon Japan has revealed their exclusive.

The figure is exactly like you would expect the Generation 1 homage and appears to be in-scale with Transformers MP-10 Convoy and is able to hitch a ride in the trailer.

The figure is set for an October 2012 release for 5800 Yen (~$73 USD).


Amazon Japan is also offering exclusive pile drivers that can be attached to the figure's hands in robot mode (see image below). A set will come with each purchase of MP-12 Lambor from Amazon, which is currently taking pre-orders for 5098 Yen (~$64 USD).


This mold will be reused for MP-14 Red Alert, which is set to be officially announced by Takara at Tokyo Toy Show this weekend.

Well... at least based on that pic it'll make a good looking G2 repaint, lol

I found another pic of the weapons storing on the vehicle mode when i looked on Amazon.jp I want to order all the figures from them as the Sideswipe comes with piledrivers and Soundwave comes with Energon cubes! I am looking forward to these guys. Will these guys have real rubber tires? I know i... read more

Sideswipe is going to be the same basic size as an Alternity, so tall Deluxe, small Voyager( based on pre-DOTM sizes, not the current sizes) Soundwave is the one I'm waiting on for size comparison's, he's either gonna be the same height as MP-10, or just a tad shorter, around the same h... read more

I will ask the question that no one has....I hope that all the weapons fit on the figure in Alt mode....would kind of suck if they at this point couldn't be stored on the figure....I want to see what he looks like next to Alt / BT and the MP01 figure as well. I am guessing he's going to be a... read more

are we looking at the same figure???? These guys are being done in proper scale with each other. Since Takara reset the scale with MP-10, Lambor had to shrink down too. Since the figures shrink, so did the prices. The MP line are supposed to be more Anime accurate. Hell, he even looks like the DW S... read more

I'm a bit dissapointed with Sideswipe. It does not look like what I have grown to expect what a MP to be. He's small and a blocky. I was wondering why the price was so low and then we saw the prototype image. My honost first reaction was that that could not be a MP! The price may be... read more

i don't think all the other cassettes were confirmed to be released in the same box as Soundwave.... Why wouldn't Takara do the same things as they did in the 80's??? Pack 1 cassette with the figure, and then release 2 packs. That model worked back in the 80's, why the hell not no... read more

More MasterPiece News
14 months ago back in March 2015, I did a video discussing my Masterpiece Moments for the TF MP figures in my collection. There have been quite a few additions to the MP collection since then so I though it was time for me to do the next episode and go through my Masterpiece Moments for all the latest figures since that time. Takara have pumped out about one figure per month since then, albeit mostly repaints. Hope you can check out my thoughts on these Masterpiece figures
Those of you looking to snag one of the Toy Show Exclusive Black Masterpiece TracksMP-25L Loudpedal figures will be glad to know TFSource has them up for order. The repaint of the MP Tracks figure comes in a delightfully Decepticon edition featuring an all black redeco, some cool accessories, and a nifty stand. Get a look at the official images that show the Transformers Masterpiece MP-25L Loudpedal that is slated to for shipping July, 2016. It is listed at a price of $89.95 USD for pre-order now at TFSource.
Leaked this weekend in a fuzzy image of a hobby magazine page, we now have full photos from TakaraTomy themselves of Loud Pedal, the recolor of Masterpiece Tracks featuring the toy-based head previously seen only on a testshot. Loud Pedal will be an exclusive at Tokyo Toy Show this summer, and is based on the Diaclone black version of Tracks. For those concerned about availability, it's worth noting last year's TTS exclusives were fairly readily available online for some time after the event. Keep reading to see all the high res photos!
Are we destined to get evil Decepticons twins for basically every Masterpiece Autobot car? ...probably. The latest TakaraTomy effort towards that goal is MP-25L, whose name appears to be "Loudpedal." This was revealed via a very small photo of one of the upcoming Japanese hobby magazines, which also shows that Loudpedal will have their own stand! Keep reading for the photo, and what little info we have.
You get a Megatron! You get a Megatron! Everybody who handled Gun Megatron in the G1 cartoon gets a Megatron! The latest Masterpiece to get in on the Oprah-like Megatron giveaway is MP-29 Shockwave! Also known by his Japanese name of Laserwave, the Decepticon caretaker will be reissued in non-Japanese Asian territories, and those who preorder will be gifted with the - what, at least third? - nontransforming pistol form of the Decepticon leader. Keep reading for more info!
