Colored Looks at Transformers Masterpiece MP-12 Lambor Show All the Awesome; Amazon To Include Additional Pile Drivers

By puma on 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.

More MasterPiece News
Cybergundam at TAG Hobby has also shared a solicitation scan for Masterpiece Star Saber. While the images in the scan don't show anything we haven't seen already, they do give us important information - specifically the price and planned release date. Coming in March of 2015 at a Japanese retail of ¥18,000, you can get MP-24, one of the most anticipated figures in the series since its announcement among the character selection poll a long while back. In the meantime we can bet that Hisashi Yuki will keep tweeting pictures to make sure everyone stays excited for it over the next six months!
Thanks to Cybergundam and TAG Hobby, we've got the first look at MP-23, the redeco for the upcoming Masterpiece Wheeljack. With little established ground to work from, TakaraTomy has opted for the Marlboro racing deco from one of the Diaclone editions of the original Wheeljack. Now named Exhaust, this edition will have a new head based on the Diaclone toy, but otherwise is shown to come with the same accessories as Wheeljack. Not indicated in the scan, TAG Hobby indicated a release date of February 28, 2015 for this figure.
Transformers Asia is showing off a special coin that will be included with MP-20 Wheeljack in non-Japanese Asian countries. It's a nice-looking little coin in a nifty case. Keep reading to see the photo!
Autobase Aichi has posted images of the Asia exclusive throne that comes with the reissue of MP-08X King Grimlock. It's revealed to be made of a very thin plastic, probably not much thicker than the trays that larger toys traditionally come packaged in. Kind of a shame, but still not too bad for a giveaway item with a Masterpiece toy. Keep reading to see all the photos!
Takara's Hisashi Yuki has posted images of Masterpiece Star Saber's Brain of Courage to Twitter, and it's pretty small! It's shown next to the original version, as well as next to Diaclone pilot figures (which for reference are about 1" tall, or the right size to fit in all those empty seats on your G1 Transformers). It's also compared to one of those figures in the seat on Super Fire Convoy/RID Optimus Prime! Keep reading to see all the tininess for yourself!
