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
Transformers fans in Asia will be glad to know they can give or get the gift of MP-02 Masterpiece Soundwave in time for the holidays when the figure will be re-issued. According to the Transformers Asia page on Facebook, the figure will be re-issued along with 5 tape-bots and a bonus die-cast Cassette player. This is said to be a Hasbro release in Taiwan this December, 2016. No word on pricing just yet. Read on to see the promotional image and other details on the MP-02 Soundwave Masterpiece Reissue.
It's new stock photo day from Japan, as early this morning a round of new upcoming Transformers product photos was handed out. First up is Masterpiece Cheetor, now designated as MP-34 and given a projected retail release in January of 2017! Coming in at a price of 7,000 Yen it is considerably lower than MP Optimus Primal's 12,000 Yen, being more closely in line with the Autobot Car pricepoint. The new photos finally show off the beast mode in color, and all we can say is, spot-on smooth! Keep reading to take a look!
Thanks to pancrazi on Weibo we have a few images showing the debut of Masterpiece Dirge! The third member of the conehead seeker group is finally accounted for, not terribly long after the reveal of Thrust! These photos actually show Dirge being unpacked and added to the display case, along with a good closeup on the figure's robot mode. Besides the serial number, an unsurprising MP-11ND, we don't have any information or release details for this figure. But as final as that display piece looks, it must not be too far future! Click through to have a look.
Inferno is finally joining Takara's Masterpiece series! MP-33 Masterpiece Inferno transforms into a fully licensed Mitsubishi Fuso T951 Ladder Fire Truck. Just like in the animation, his ladder completely disappears when in robot mode! The figure is listed now for a pre-order price of $149.99 USD slated to begin shipping in November 2016. Pre-order yours now from bigbadtoystore.com
At Wonderfest this summer, Cheetor was obviously the bigger show of the Masterpieces. But G1 was represented too, albeit just by the grey prototype of Inferno and a finished Delta Magnus. Autobase Aichi grabbed a few pictures of their display case, giving us an especially good look at Delta Magnus, and a close up of its alternate faces. If you want to check out the upcoming entires in the G1 MP run, keep reading for the mirrored photos!
