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
Autobase Aichi has posted some small images of flyers being handed out today at Wonderfest. Much of it concerns simple things like the The Last Knight toys, the campaign to produce the Infobar licensed transforming cellphones, and existing Masterpiece products. But hidden in a corner is the one juicy nugget of new info. After perfecting their black magic transformation engineering tricks with Cheetor, Dinobot appears to be coming to Masterpiece, and there's no telling how they'll reconcile the show model's ludicrously incompatible robot and beast modes in a toy that has to actually work. Keep reading for mirrored images.
Thanks to Loopaza on Facebook, we have clear, high res scans of the two Transformers-focused pages from this month's Figure King Magazine. As we saw in the early look the other day, the Legends EX Headmaster 6 pack is on show here, destined for various limited release outlets next month. Newly seen is a big showcase of MP-38 Supreme Commander version Beast Convoy/Optimus Primal, based on the original toy with new deco and some new accessory parts. We have the full resolution pages mirrored for you, so click through to see it now!
We now have an official English language designation for MP-38, known in Japan as "Convoy (Beast Wars) Legendary Commander Version." It's Optimus Primal (Movie), explicitly tying this toy-accurate version of the figure to Optimus Primal's cel-animated turn in the Beast Wars Second movie, "Lio Convoy In Imminent Danger!" And in honor of that new designation, Hasbro Asia is throwing in a presumably diecast metal bunch of bananas for those who preorder him through the appropriate Asian channels. Keep reading to see the teaser image!
About a month ago we were the first to bring you word via Dengeki Hobby that Masterpiece Cheetor's release date had been pushed back from its planned January date in to February. In the time since, retail websites have begun to reflect this change, and through TakaraTomy Mall, we now have the new Japanese release date to share. Stores in Japan will start selling MP-34 Cheetor in Saturday, February 25th. Whether the mainland Asia release will occur on the same day or possibly be a little earlier as has happened in the past when Japanese release dates have been delayed is currently unknown.
TakaraTomy's Twitter account has shared a pair of photos highlighting the upcoming (relatively speaking) release of Masterpiece Dirge, showing off it as well as the prior two conehead seekers together as a group in robot and vehicle modes. Through less than proper means this isn't exactly the first good look we've had at Dirge with the rest of the set, but this focus does help to show again how the three will work together for display in either form. You can check out the photos mirrored below.
