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.

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
The TransformersAsia Facebook page has posted images (in some cases silhouettes) of the exclusives set to come with MP-33 Inferno, MP-34 Cheetor, and MP-35 Grapple! These Masterpiece figures will ship to non-Japanese Asian territories with miniature diecast figures of Optimus Prime, Optimus Primal, and Ultra Magnus! We don't know at the moment whether these figures will also ship with coins or whether these minifigures have taken the place of the collector coins - but that'd make a lot of sense. Keep reading to see the images!
Hobbybase have posted new images of Transformers Masterpiece MP-27 Ironhide Rerun edition that includes a drill weapon as an Asia limited bonus. The special accessory Drill is shown held by the MP-27 Ironhide figure as well as with the mini tool box case that can hold the weapon as well. Read on to see the images for more details.
Fans looking to guy the Masterpiece MP-35 Grapple Transformers figure from Takara Tomy will be glad to know about this special promotion. You can get this special design die-cast metal mini figure free when you preorder the Transformers Masterpiece MP-35 Grapple from selected stores in Asia, while supplies Last! This promotion is available to Asia only, not including Japan. Read on to see the promotional image with silhouette preview of what appears to be Ultra Magnus, below for the full preview.
The Facebook page Transformers Asia has posted a series of new photos showing Masterpiece Shattered Glass Optimus Prime. The recolor can be seen in various poses and using its accessories, including the combat deck and repair bay functions of the trailer. A few shots give a chance to see it alongside other iterations of the MP-10 body - and notably the Nemesis version pulling the trailer, suffering only from mismatched insignias. We've mirrored the photos, click through to see them now!
Loopaza Mega Store on Facebook has shared high res scans of this month's Figure King magazine, giving us a look at the feature on Masterpiece Grapple! With some repeats of the previously seen stock photos, such as the accessory option parts, we also have a few new glimpses. But maybe most notably there's a render depicting only the parts shared between Grapple and Inferno - and roughly half the toy is missing, meaning Grapple's sporting a lot of new pieces! Also shown were UW-EX Megatronia, a bit of Transformers Adventure, and a full page on the Diaclone Reboot power suits - click through to take a look!
