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.

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

My Universe 2.0 Sideswipe is good enough.

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

That looks awesome! -  
12:24 am

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
We reported first last month of TakaraTomy Mall listing MP-11NR, a Ramjet retool of the current Masterpiece seeker body, and the first representation of the 1985 seeker lineup - the coneheads. However, that order page vanished a short time later. Tonight we've learned that the page has been restored, and new order and delivery dates added. Preorders will be accepted between 11/30 and 12/8, with delivery expected on or after March 20th. The price, just a hair under 16,000 Yen remains unchanged

TF-Prototype on Facebook has posted several photos from the pages of the new Generations 2015 book released in Japan. Shown in the shared pages are new looks at the prototype for Masterpiece Hot Rod, Shockwave all in color, Ratchet and Ironhide, plus a look at Unite Warriors Devastator and the Constructicons Click through to check out all the images!
From wolixiaoqi on weibo, we've got some nice photos of the exclusive Clampdown Masterpiece figure, the Red Alert recolor as a police car. This, like Tigertrack is one of the G1 characters invented by eHobby to create more uses for reissued G1 toy molds several years ago, and now serving the same purpose for Masterpiece. Clampdown is due for release sometime next month, so these pictures are a great preview of what's to come. Click through and check them out!
Dengeki Hobby has posted some new photos of Masterpiece Red Bumblebee, the same-character recolor due to release in December. The Masterpiece figure is intended to homage the color variations found in the original Autobot Minicars, though one might also argue that this is acting as a stop-gap for a Cliffjumper that potentially won't happen for a while. Whatever the true motive, the red bodied Bug photographs rather well, but if the Dengeki writeup is accurate, may be a little light on accessories, possibly only including its gun. Click through for the photos!
